here is my opinion. tell me if you agree or disagree. I award best answer to whichever answer I learn the most from.
the ideal man that women want is very masculine, but feminine in some ways.
he is mostly masculine. he's assertive. he approaches the woman, takes her number, calls her, makes the plans, sets the date, pays for the date, and makes all the moves. he's strong, mentally and physically, makes the rules (without being insecure or bossy) and he doesn't let anyone push him around.
at the same time, he does adopt some feminine qualities (unlike many men who act apeish).
- he's not all macho-man, he can admit his weaknesses
- he's not all into guns and violence, he supports peace
- he's open about his emotions and can express them
- he takes interest in little details like body language
- he pays attention to his looks and hygeine

Yea, for me I do want a mix and I just now I found that out. I have also been the sort who has gone for the feminine type of guys, even some that my friends have wondered about...you know, thinking the might be on the other team. I hadn't put a lot of weight on them having to be masculine...the had to be straight, but other than that I didn't care.
Then I meet the last person I'd been dating. I found myself making most of the moves, doing most of the calling...luckily he'd make the dates and pay for them but it was still very frustrating. He was also very indecisive and not assertive by any measure of the word. As much as I adored him (and still do if I'm going to be honest) it was frustrating! It was like hanging out with my girl friends sometimes and that's not what I wanted. I wanted his sensitivity but at the same time I wanted him to be able to man up when I needed him to.1
