Don't be a pushover, and for God's sake don't limit yourself to dating one girl at a time. Confidence comes from options, and to women, confidence is irresistible. I really love your comment,would agree entirely with you. What i've noticed though is you've obviously read No More Mr. Nice Guy,you're making the same case the writer does in his book.
But,i'll tell you what i find to be interesting in all these researches. You'll find incredible amount of information and opinions on what men should be like,how they should treat girls,but when it comes to girls it seems like they don't need to know much about how to treat a guy,it looks as if their only role is to look pretty and get treated like a princess. I won't comment on you calling women in their thirties past their prime because that part says more about you as a human being than anything else.
You are the type of guy who will jump off a bridge once you hit your first erectile dysfunction, and the world will be a better place for it. My apprehension with this study and those like it are their focus on mate selection.
Would it not be more prudent to look at attraction instead? Knowing what women say they want is good, knowing what initially attracts them is better. Attraction isn't the same for females, I think the real failing of studies like this is that they lead men to believe that there's a single set of things to be done that can more or less attract all females.
I think that's false. It doesn't matter if you're Brad Pitt, some girl won't like you. And if you're not Brad Pitt more girls won't like you. Instead of attracting all females I think the key is to focus your efforts on attracting the ones that will actually be attracted to you for whatever your qualities happen to be at any point in time.
Being such a subjective experience I'm not sure if it lends itself to research the same way. Men want a woman who can't treat them like their mother wink emoticon Women want a man who can treat them like a spoiled daddy's girl smile emoticon This is my ultimate belief with man and woman psychology. Men want a woman who can treat them like their mother wink emoticon Women want a man who can treat them like a spoiled daddy's girl smile emoticon This is my ultimate belief with man and woman psychology when it comes to lasting relationship.
Making this kind of research is all too well,but ultimately i'd probably agree with you. But i wouldn't generalize anyone or anything,i think it's still wrong to say all man or all women want the same thing. I just know from my experience that most important quallity in women for me is just being a warm and nurturing person,of course looks do play a role,but not to the extent that most people would make it seem. And i think what you're saying is especially true as of new generations,that seems to increasingly be the case.
Girls think their role in the relationship is to look pretty and receive presents.
They want to be treated like a princess,and in return Just my personal opinion I want to be respected, appreciated and loved. I cannot have children anymore, so I dont worry about reproduction, I could care less about wealth I own my home, land and have a job I can support myself, so I care less about wealth But its a nice article.

Women said they would be less attracted to men who engaged in modern risks, which might seem just plain dumb.

The researchers determined that the men using the scented spray displayed more confident behavior, which in turn made them more attractive. For the next 12 hours, the men wore cotton pads under their armpits and were instructed not to use any deodorants or fragrances.

The same procedure was repeated with about 30 men looking at a picture of a woman. Everyone rated how attractive they found the person pictured for a short- and long-term relationship.

Results showed that men with scars appeared slightly more attractive for short-term relationships than men without scars. Women, on the other hand, were perceived as equally attractive regardless of whether they had scarred faces. In one experiment included in the study, the researchers created profiles for three men and three women on a GPS-based dating app.
In one set of profiles, the men and women were pictured in contractive positions — for example, by crossing their arms or hunching their shoulders.
In the other set of profiles, the same men and women were pictured in expansive positions, like holding their arms upward in a "V" or reaching out to grab something. Results showed that people in expansive postures were selected as potential dates more often than those in contractive postures. This effect was slightly larger for women selecting men.
In one experiment included in the study, researchers had nearly North American adults look at photos of opposite-sex individuals online.
