On the eve of Valentine’s Day, we’d like you to tell us ­- what do women want in a mate? A UMaine professor has done research and found women want a man who’s less Evel Knievel, more Michael Phelps – but, ladies of the tri-county, we’d like to hear directly from you. Send a sentence or two to reporter Kathryn Skelton by Feb. 3 at [email protected] or 689-2844. Include a name and hometown and just what it is you’re after. And if you’ve found him, all the better.
