Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

I was just listening to Shania Twain over the radio about what doesn’t impress her. This inspired me to write another Mytake about what men do or have that don’t necessarily bring heart eyes to women.

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

“I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all”

I love a man who’s smart and intelligent. Who doesn’t want a man with an impressive list of accolades? But if all you constantly do is bore me out with your scientific theories, alien conspiracies and brag about your accomplishments, don’t expect me to stay put. Talk to me about how vulnerable you are, your thoughts about our relationship, your fears – tell me. I want to know more of you.

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

Okay, so you're a rocket scientist?
So you got the brain but have you got the touch”

Who doesn’t want a man who works on rockets? Who flies planes? Who builds skyscrapers? But if you don’t show me that side of you who loves to get down and dirty with me, cooking in our kitchen or painting our house together, then who are you inside that uniform?

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

“I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place”

You can be Tom Hardy or Brad Pitt, but if all you care most about in life are your looks, you’d leave me feeling unloved knowing you have a string of girls vying for your attention. How will I know your heart belongs to me only if I have to constantly compete with them?

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

“You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your car good night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!”

I get it. You love your Aventador. It’s your investment, your baby. I wish you’d look at me the way you look at it sitting magnificently in your garage. I wish you’d spend as much time on me as you do buffing off the little nicks on it after a drive in the town and how careful you are with it. I wish you’d be as gentle with my heart.

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

“You think you're cool but have you got the touch, so what do you think you're Elvis or something?”

You’re so suave, so ruggedly handsome. Everyone adores you. You’re too cool for school. I want to love you but I feel you’re way out of my league and I cannot keep up. I wish you’d come down to earth and love me for me as I love you for you…

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

“Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don't impress me much”

You look like the perfect man. But I am not looking for perfect. I am looking for a man with a human touch with flaws, insecurities and who is not afraid to show me who he truly is inside. What I need is someone who is not afraid to laugh or cry and share his life with me; someone who can hold my hand through it all and just love me.

Things that men do that don’t impress some women that much…

Having a lot of money, cars, a big house with a gate are good. But it means nothing if I don’t have your love. It can be an upgrade to some women but it is a bonus for me to have an amazing man like you by my side. Together, we can build a life; just you and me. Let me show you what love is…

Thanks for the time reading, lovers.

    My personal experience with super intelligent guys has been they they had fewer social skills. They were so arrogant and condescending towards others that I couldn’t keep dating them. They were also shocked and bewildered that I was done dealing with them. It’s not like I like dumb guys with poor earning potential either but their negative traits were insufferable.

      Thank you. I don't get why they're so upset. i am not even tearing men down... I am actually telling them you don't have to be all this, the right girl will love you. Even if you are all this, it is not the reason why a girl is in love with you. It could be a bonus. For lazy gold diggers, then yes they hit a million jackpot regardless if there is love or not...

    • 1d

      Everyone is different. The problem with most people, if they even attempt to play the game, is that they believe there is a sort of rule book on this shit. Hell, most idiot men actually believe that you have to "try harder" to like someone. The notion behind that is absolutely absurd and I won't even bother trying to deconstruct why. Lol

      But, yes, you're right. You don't have to be all these things. This list could really be personal to what you want, but it won't match another woman's list of expectations.

      The best thing is this is just a typical "You totally don't impress me with your muscles and your money and your brains and your big dick... mmm", and it usually ends with her being another one on the high value man's notch count, regretting it, and leaving in a walk of shame.

  • 2d

    You say that now... but the endgame is usually the same. Women just want it all.
    You want a rich man, but want him to still have time to spend with you... i mean.. how do you think he got rich... but spending all his time for the money that made him rich. Gotta pick one.

    Now to talk about meself... I've learned not to try to impress no woman... a woman will be impressed by what she wants to be impressed by regardless... and if its me? fine.. if it ain't.. its what it is.

      Yeah all men threaten and disrespect women for sport. You lost all credibility by saying that.

    • 3d

      Well then you can validate your credibility equally with evidence to the contrary.

      Mine is personal experience and countless RSS feeds to suggest that tactics are employed In legal scenarios.

      Likewise the ease with with relationships head south and are beyond repair if a man finds a reason, any reason to stop respecting his partner.

      Women yield out of reactivity and pain.
      We don’t freely find it entertaining to discuss how we slept and wrecked so and so’s image. It has its deepest roots of vengeance and emotions to go that length.

      That’s also why there are countless videos on how to earn a guys’ love, respect and attention back and so very few toward men seeking these answers
      Because they don’t want to care.

      That itself speaks volumes the market for relationship counseling is ideally geared to women.
      You may say that’s because we can’t be grateful or happy. But women have heightened intuition before damage is near.

      Some let it slip because they endure the embarrassment and awkwardness or let’s say in some dire situations, abuse.

      It’s not incredible to know it’s that obvious in society.
      If you have better rationale offer that not your unfounded criticism.

    Well, for one, a 37 year old 4/10 telling us what she finds valuable in us.

    And guess what?
    This whole thing is about a mediocre woman trashing men for being better, more educated, more accomplished, more hard-working than her. Because the singer, and you yourself, dear OP, are insecure, and can't handle a strong man, so you try to drag them down, mock them. That's what's going on, isn't it, honey?

    You're not looking for the perfect man? Well, I have news for you honey - he wasn't interested in you either. So you can play the brat all day long, insult men all you like, but the fact is that you're just a hater.

      "For you to rate me 4/10 is laughable."
      No, the laughable part if that you honestly think you're worth more than 4/10.

      "Say what you want but you don't understand what I am trying to say."
      I understood you perfectly. Did YOU understand what I said?

      "I am not insulting men here. It's actually the other way around"
      Actually you're not insulting men, or blessing men either. You're trashing successful men by picking on the being smartass, self-absorbed, too good to be true, etc... when in reality none of these are real flaws in them, these are YOUR flaws - YOU are not good enough for them, and you insult them for it. I can't imagine a lot of things more petty than this, really.

      "hide behind that picture-less profile of yours."
      Unlike you, I don't define myself by my looks, and I don't need people's approval of my looks to sleep sound. Chao, honey!

  • 2d

    Then just don't expect a man to impress you, and be open about it. I think a lot of men feel like they need to he impressive in order to attract women, due to how picky women can seem, wanting a handsome, tall guy who is financially their equal, smart, kind, loving, emotional, open about their feelings but not too open to make it boring, interesting, funny, not too braggy, not too serious, not too laid back. You have to be a reliable guy who is not too reliable because then you would be boring, but you need to be somewhat reliable or you're seen as immature and childish by women. I think this whole thing with women believing a man will blow them away and give them everything they want is very toxic and is causing this scenario. The current dating game is mostly based around men impressing women. You seem like a decent example of this, you seem to want everything. Pick the things that are most important to you and focus on them.

    Very good one. Lots of men just want to impress and they don’t realise that when you’ve been together for a few months, you get comfortable and that coat of shine they covered themselves with starts to fade...
    I experienced that with my ex. Saying so many amazing things about how he does his own laundry and can cook and so obsessed with his hair... always a know it all, when I was honest and myself. after a year and a half of relationship we were living together and I was cooking, cleaning, doing his laundry, and even cut his hair. This is my fault and I get it. I let him fool me. But never again. After 5 years together I broke up. He was telling me I’m too strong, independent and too impressive. I’m successful in my career I’m right in my choices, I earn twice the amount of money he does. So he felt small, and took a hit to his ego. Well, piss off. That’s what I said 🤷🏻‍♀️

If not , not a flying one given , the only women in my life are arms length platonic friends , I do not want to endure another relationship. " Talk to me about how vulnerable you are " ..., big NO , for a man , that WILL be used as ammunition against him at some point , and will be taken as a sign of weakness , that is reality !!

    It's reasonable, a male scientist wouldn't talk to some woman about scientific theories unless he thinks she could understand it, which is why scientists only date intellectual women.

    Men who work on rockets, who fly planes, who build skyscrapers don't impress me either. A woman who could accomplish those things would be impressive and truly different from the rest. I share the sentiment of Shania Twain and the rest of the unimpressed women, that intelligence in women is more impressive because it's rarer.

    I'm so weird. I'm not like most girls. I like it when men are smart, willing to share and talk about stuff I have no idea, so that I can learn new things. In vice versa, I think it's not normal if a man talks about "feeling". Men would like to be protectors. If they show their weaknees to you, how could you rely and feel safe when being with them? Somehow I think one would use the word to make a woman feel like he cares. It could be a lie. I don't believe in that kind of word at all.
    Plus, how can you compare yourself to a car? (actually that sounds like getting jealous of it.) If a man wants to express about his property, his success, it may imply that he could be a provider, for you? I don't know maybe I'm wrong.

And let's not forget the most important part here, the other side is going to have a wish list too. Probably not as long as yours (few do) but you better be damn sure your ticking a lot of boxes.

    Understand yours by doing this. Stand naked in front of the mirror, holding up your harvard law degree and home baked apple pie. If you can't do that ( who could?) get as close to that as you can so you can truly understand what you are offering up. Understand if you are shop bought apple pie or homemade
