    There must be something I'm doing wrong
    or..... The above lists are incomplete. Or I'm completely oblivious to any thing liking me which is also plausible, or they think I'm gay as I have a fair few platonic friends that are girls. Who knows

    I guess it'll be the weight even tho I'm told "Nah"
    Maybe it's because you refer to women as things?

    Certainly not any of the physical features or characteristics that I possess. :gah:
    I hope you're not really that lacking in confidence. I don't know you but I've seen your pics and you're good looking at least :dontknow:

    As to what I look for in a man; Good sense of humour, supportive, intelligent without being arrogant about it. Ambition, a good sense of direction and knowledge about where he wants to be in life.

    Physically? Thick beard, dark hair and dark eyes are a plus, taller than me would be nice too, which isn't hard as I'm pretty short. A nice hairy bod is sexy to me too. And being able to kiss well. But I've found all sorts attractive.

    They can go to the local chippy, bring me a bag of chips THEN leave me alone. That'd be an ideal date.

    what???lol
    You want guys to be shy? shy as in looking at his shoes when's talking to you or shy as in won't be loud and aggressive when you're together?
    #1

    Absolutely personal preference. Your idea that "nowadays" girls want something specific is wrong. For me, I've been pretty obsessed with average-looking guys who I get along well with. Just be yourself. 🙂

    ohh.I don't know how to explain what i mean by shy...when he talks to me he can be shy but after (if) we get together I want him to be calm-not aggressive.
    When someone's shy they don't have to look at their shoes...lol..basically they can't make eye contact with u.....i still can't explain it properly
    too hard to explain....

    At the risk of traumatising all the possessers of the same, the aforementioned are counter productive when making love to a woman vaginally. It hits the cervix when you thrust and causes a lot of pain.

    Smaller ones are much better. ( Oh and the vagina is not a woman's sex organ btw, it's the clitoris.) Just so you know and don't wonder why she tells you she's been faking it / suddenly departs giving no explanation.

    I think that's just ( wrong headed ) male rivalry. Women want a man who respects them, who will listen to them and love them. They've no time for superficial , self absorbed pretty boys who can't stand the pace in real life.

    A man servant who serves you drinks and then leaves you to enjoy them so he doesn't bother you with his presence.

    Sort of man you would cheat on. No offence.

    What I said was clearly a joke.

    Actually they tend to have quite a lot of time for superficial, self absorbed pretty boys.

    Until they settle down and then look for respect, love etc

    All these answers are stupid and half truths.
    Basically look decent (hair and clothes can go a long way if your face looks like pizza or something)
    and don't have the personality of a plank of wood, be funny, be interesting
    Also don't actively look for girls, just be friends and let it flow from there.

    At the end of the day, both men and women look for different things in partners so it's difficult to pinpoint an exact attribute or collection of attributes' people are looking for. General idea is that women look for confidence.
    You'd be wrong there :hugs:
