What Do Women Want?Page 1 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
Does anyone have any dating advise? So women say that they want a guy who is:

- Good looking
- Not just looking to get laid
- Is a good guy with an edge
- Not a freak
- Someone who takes the time to read profiles
- Someone who has diverse interests
- Someone who has great characteristics, can hold an intelligent conversation, is caring, kind, etc.

But for some reason it seems like there's some other 'magical, mystical ingredient(s)' - yeah there definately has to be chemistry - but chemistry is being like minded + like hearted. So what's the "holy grail"? - The all illusive 'love potion number 9'?

Hello,

Thanks for responding. So lets say that this guy may or may not laugh at what you have to say - but he expects the same from you. In other words, he repects you as an equal. Lets also say that he can definately laugh at himself no prob. And what if this guy is well endowed, has no std's what so ever, can out last the 'energizer bunny', is very particular about personal hygene, and much more.

There still is an elusive 'x' factor, and I'm trying to figure that out?

Holy grail - I'll have to check that out - thanks. As far as being yourself - definately believe in that too! If anyone poses a fake front - it will not last. But there's something that I'm still trying to figure out - that elusive 'x' factor?

OT: Gosh I dunno what I want... hoping I'll figure it out when blind sided by it.. lol. Though, there seems to be some sort of unexplainable "chemisty" involved..

Aint that the truth? But what confuses me, is say you have all that covered - what's the 'x' factor? And what about the fact that if they expect a certain standard - then why are men not able to ask the same standard in return. I know that's what I'm looking for in a woman - although for me, it doesn't really matter what money she makes or doesn't make, it doesn't matter what her title is - but just that she's happy with her choices.

For me - not a 'survior stategy' I truly mean it - I mean just think about it - if she is truly happen with her choices, and you have no hang-up on that, then so-long to all the waisted time in mind-games.

Thanks - I actually regard that as a compliment - Definately not average run of the mill - That's one of the things that I would turn-off women - I mean if we all met a stero-typical mindset that some women portary a guy to be, then why would they even bother to try anyone outside that presupposition?

Thanks for your response. First I do have to admit that you are very attractive and I loved your profile! Hopefully we will be able to correspond further. In regards to the response - yeah I agree self confidence, but here's the thing - there can be too much self-confidence - either guy or girl. If that's the case then it would be a turn-off as that person would be viewed as thinking that they are a better person or deserve more than you or I do.

Oh gag me,... last thing I need is something to have to "fix" in my life! The house, vehicle and yard are bad enough.
I always say if it isn't broken DON'T fix it! and who in their right mind buys into something that needs repairs?? ( OK houses aside? BLUSH)

True - it messes with your head though trying to figure out if that elusive 'x' factor is something that can be learnt or attained

See I don't understand that - I know what you're saying and in some cases it seems to be true. But I would like to think that there are a few that want a decent guy who doesn't want to waste any time on treating people like crap. I mean isn't that why women are looking for something else - because they are sick of the crap and mind games?

Hey there - I know what you mean, but what happens when you keep butting heads or locking horns? If she says it's her way and the guy says it's his then eventually both end up on the highway.

You don't have to respond if you don't want. You seem to be really bitter about something - do you know what displacement is?

I have just asked a question and want different peoples opinions on it. If your frustrated with the topic then the solution is easy - don't post a response.
