Women... what do you REALLY want?!Page 1 of 1    
See it every day... "I just want a decent honest man to make me laugh. Sick of being messed around by players. Are there any nice men left?" etc etc.

Ok, so here's a decent man. I think I'm ok looking, certainly very reliable, own a house next to the sea, very nice car, very good job, no debt whatsoever, six-figure sum in the bank, don't smoke, don't gamble, never been unfaithful and have a massive personality that will rival all of the dimwits wandering these pages.

Oh.. and I can spell properly, am polite, considerate and don't use bad language and I'm pretty certain I produced an entertaining profile with amusing pictures for points of discussion.

I think I'm a darn good catch!

But perhaps maybe not as it seems despite all my qualities, it's either not enough or women are just full of rubbish?!

If I'm lucky, I get one message per week. And that's usually from someone 100 miles away! Yes I message others. But never get a reply. Hmmm.

I appreciate the ratio of men to women is likely disproportionate but I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Personally I can't see anything wrong with your profile, it reads almost like a perfect cv with all the right qualifications for the post applied for. You neglected to add you are also full of confidence, but that is given away by how you describe yourself, another quality women look for.
But such is life, and we know it's not as straightforward as that.
How many times do we see in our everyday lives a below average looking guy (without a fantastic job) with a fine looking woman, and vice versa.
Sounds like you have the keys to the lamborghini, you just gotta go find the lamborghini.

Simple, what women say they want, isn't what they end up going for.

They come to sites like this intending to find someone "different", but they end up going for what is familiar.
Truth is people on the whole are suspicious of and don't trust "different".

What a woman wants changes according to her ovulation cycle, what she had for dinner last night, what her best mate bought in the sale she couldn’t get to and what her ex husband once called her on holiday in 1993.

The way I feel at the moment with this site, a hypothetical, collective, boot up their arse would be appropriate!

Sorry Roxy or any other ladies I know from here, as you know I am not that sort of guy, but I do say it as it is from time-to-time.
