The other day this guy said something that rang so true: It's more appealing for a woman (than a man) to be short, just like it's more appealing for a man (than a woman) to be fat... But it's also more appealing for a man to be charismatic than a woman to be charismatic: meaning charismatic men get more dates than charismatic women. Why is this?
I've found this to be true in real life also... but why don't men really appreciate charisma as much (or at all) as women do?
Charisma isn't the same as charm... don't confuse the two.

I'm not sure that's true. i just think men aren't as good in telling apart physical attraction from emotional attraction.
You often hear people say that men only care about looks, which is obviously not true. But part of the reason that stereotype persists I think is because men themselves are for the most part bad at quantifying what it is that they want (other than looks). If you ask them it's mostly something generic like being "fun" or being "pleasant" . Well another word for that is charisma3
