So I've dated around in the past and I've had probably five or so occasions where the girl I'm flirting with or dating tells me something along the lines of, "I'm sorry, I can't date you, but you'd make a great husband someday." Are husband-like qualities something that is unappealing? Or are they just being 'nice' by trying to compliment when they reject me?

I have actually been told this. From what I gather the girls are still into a "bad boy" or a "party" guy. They are looking for someone to let loose with and have some fun and excitement. They want someone to be on the wild side, maybe a tad irresponsible. Some guys give of the impression to some women they are not fun because they are responsible gentlemen who can't give them the time of their life. Some women look at guys to give them fun, other guys to give them a family. So she looks at you as someone she could settle down with, marry and have a family with, but not someone she wants to date right now. It could be her way of trying to compliment and reject you at the same time without trying to hurt your feelings. Either way I always found that comment insulting like I wasn't hot or fun enough.1
