When it comes to sexual attraction, it's commonly known that women are far from logical. The immediate stimuli for men is visual, which is far from logical, but men can delay gratification if they want a more meaningful connection with a woman (emotional/spiritual). Women are different because they are attracted to much broader attributes - physical, emotional, psychological, etc. Sure, there are gold diggers, but wealthy men can be attractive to women because of their success and ambition - i.e. the intrinsic confidence-building qualities that helped these men become wealthy to begin with. That is why the triangle of attraction is looks money AND status, not just looks and money.
Shallowness and Double Standards
It's often argued that men are more shallow because they are only interested in superficial qualities. Women can be very nice as people but overlooked by men if they do not have the physical attributes that are conducive to darwinistic reproduction. It's true that what attracts a woman is much more intrinsic, but before you associate 'intrinsic' attraction with 'meaningful' or 'virtuous' intentions, etc., you should think about how men with low self-esteem are treated.
If a man is not content with his life and completely together with his personal stuff (finances, relationships, management, etc.) this makes him undesirable and can complicate his. If it was purely goodness women sought for in a man then this would be understandable and not a form of selfishness, however goodness, or absence of goodness are not really factors in motivating female attraction. It's not as simple as "only bad boys and players win", but it is not like women are crawling all over the good guys either - not if there is any sign of insecurity or lack of self-belief. This can be in spite of all the other virtues a man may have - e.g. his intelligence, his creativity, his good looks, etc. In short confidence is always king, for better or for worse.
But of course, these are standards that women are entitled to - as much as men are entitled to prefer good looking women, women are entitled to prefer men that walk with their chin up, so to speak.
Lots of men nowadays grow up believing the hype about feminism. Since women are equals, some men try to take this notion of equality into the dating world: they want to give women the chance to approach first, let women buy their own drinks, pay for their own half of the date, etc. In practice, however this is a bad idea because it goes back to caveman days where women were provided for by men as they fulfilled a more domestic/supportive role. Genetically, women are more attracted to the masculinity of a man that demonstrates he can provide. This means that women do NOT want to be treated as equals when it comes to dating. The opposite is true: they want to submit. Men that try to be feminists in this respect will be seen as unattractive prospects.
In theory, women will have sex with a virgin - it is the lack of confidence one may have that turns them off. In practice, however, it is very difficult to be confident in something that one has no experience in: try driving a formula one racing car without even knowing how to work the clutch and accelerator in a regular car, it's impossible. This leaves men with a relatively short window of opportunity as young men to find young women that will find them attractive due to their own inexperience. It's the only time frame to find desirable women that will give them the experience required to become more attractive as they get older. Later in life, male virgins will have a hard time winning over the opposite sex. It's not impossible for them to get experience, but typically they will have to lower their standards, either paying for sex or dating women in a lower league - this is even the case for men who would otherwise be considered a 'catch' (looks, money & status wise). Men can spend a lot of time, money and effort trying to improve their attractive appeal at this age, but to no real avail because they will always be looked down upon as someone who could not keep up with their peers when it came to the bedroom.
Often it's the men that don't understand these principles and were feminists earlier on in life that find themselves in this dilemna and probably the same men that become online misogynists and sites like GAG, bitter and resentful about women. The traditionalist men are more successful and actually end up with more loving, compassionate attitudes towards women. The latter type will continue to be shunned by women unless they sacrifice a LOT of their original values and face up to the fact that they have a lot of lost time to catch up with.
