I wouldn't go so far as to say MOST women are insecure. It's simply more acceptable by society's standards for women to express any insecurities they may have compared to guys, so some take advantage of that and can get coddled as a result.
As for how insecure women prefer a confident man... I don't see why a confident woman would make a point of going for an also confident man. That sounds like it'd be perfect circumstances for conflict of the ego's of both. Lots of butting heads. In a relationship, it's best to have some balance versus two strong/confident personalities.
everybody's insecure about SOMETHING. it just so happens that what men care most about, physical attractiveness, is what most women are insecure about. imagine if you didn't place so much value on a girl's physical attractiveness- i doubt you'd notice she was an insecure person.
Because the world is very harsh. We (Women) are expected to look like women in magazines. Men say they want us to look like thin, perfect women in magazines that have been edited by professionals then they tell us they want us to look natural and not to wear makeup. It is a battle that will never end. We want to feel beautiful but we just don't know how to act.
because they comapre themself to others.. thats why im insecure at least.. i feel like im not likable enough comoared to other women.. I like my looks, i dont feel that insecure about them at all
Many women find confidence in a man attractive. On the other hand, to most guys it doesn't seem like confidence in a woman is a big part of their attraction to her. Maybe it is to some, but overall not really.
We want different things. It's sort of like asking why men prefer women with shaved legs when they have hairy legs themselves. It's about what each gender finds attractive in the other, and they're not always going to match up.
