Those things are masculine traits and are therefore not generally appealing to men. Men are attracted to femininity. I realize society has questioned all of that over the past few decades but that hasn't changed anything. In the final analysis men still do and always will prefer feminine women.
- Men who are attracted to women with a high income are not the type of men who most women are attracted to.
- Being famous is roughly equivalent to being powerful, and powerful women are NOT attractive to most men. Men are attracted to kind and nurturing women, not powerful ones.
- Women who are leaders and risk takers - please refer to the last bullet point.
- Intelligence is a plus but definitely falls much lower on the priority list than more feminine traits such as a compassionate and nurturing disposition.
The above are facts of human nature. Men and women are very different and look for very different things is a mate.
Well I'd like my partner to be somewhat intelligent so we can hold a discussion about a multitude of subjects, but I don't need her to have clearly superior intelligence. The rest matter very little to me.
The number one thing I look for in a partner is loyalty followed by stubbornness and sense of honor.
I look for a personality that sticks to me like gorilla glue. Intimacy, companionship, and most importantly, COMFORT. If she makes me feel comfortable with who I am by showing love and affection even after my darker days, she's a keeper. I'm always stressed. Childhood was not fun for me and the aftermath lingers into adulthood.
Now, if she doesn't want to find a decent job and contribute, that will put a damper on things, though the above just may well change my mind.
A woman who finds feminine traits to be "boring and childish" is likely not, shall we say, in the mainstream and is probably struggling substantially with her identity. Denial has it's advantages at times but when it comes to human nature it's always a losing battle.
Not at all. I think you would be hard pressed to find a guy that has that as his list.
I guess my list is for a decent looking, non promiscuous, a pleasure to be around most of the time, and someone that actually cares about me. Those are the basics, I think.
Kangaru has a good list. Similar to what I said and less wordy.
