I have wondered this for a while: Why do some (many of which are very attractive) women want to date/have relationships with men that, at first glance, would be seen as "stereotypically" homosexual. This is different than being metro-sexual because I often see guys that act more feminine than many women. Is it because these types of women feel safe with them or is there another reason?
I ask this because I personally find it odd. I honestly cannot recount a man seeing a woman that acts like a man and looks like a man and then saying, "Damn, I want to be with her!".
So please, if you have any insight, feel free to answer. I will try to give a Best Answer and I will give a luxurious "up arrow" to anyone that provides a half decent answer. Thanks.

I think it differs. Many women do care about aesthetics. However, many women are attracted to opposites. I would say what I find attractive about a man who may fall into this stereotype is that there is at least an illusion that he may be softer, easier to talk to (making me feel safer) and more clear about where he stands. For such a man, he may be more expressive...Many women would love someone who offered more words of affirmation.
That said, I can take a man being manly...just need him to be more clear. I find men overall very sensitive but not communicative so I often feel I'm in a minefield with someone who stonewalls but just won't admit what's going on. These stereotypically homosexual men are as sensitive as any other but may be willing to communicate it.1
