    Height is usually a good indication of dick size; There is a strong positive correlation.

    A lot of things:

    Emotional Intelligence
    Social Awareness
    Confidence
    Decent Upbringing
    Good Body (Even downstairs)
    Sense of Security
    Power to Strive
    Good/Decent Fashion Sense
    Healthy (Mind & Body)
    Height (5ft 7in - 6ft 6in)
    Ruggedness

    There's probably a whole series of books on what women truthfully want from a man but I can't think of any right now.

    I don't get the appeal with being with tall guys? Srsly. Like I understand why some girls like bulked up guys but not the height thing. Confused :/
    From an evolutionary/subconscious standpoint, a man being tall is associated with masculinity, power and good genetics.

    Stop coping. Its embarrassing.
    Coping?

    Have you not noticed the phenomena in which mental maturity seems to correlate with a change in the taste of men in WHITE GIRLS?

    Asian girls for some reason seem to prefer less manly man full stop, and more youthful looking ones for all their life. Black girls oddly somewhere inbetween.

    Big dick
    Six pack
    6ft +
    you took the words right out of my mouth - nailed it
    but they want more than the six pack - they want the anaconda arms, the triangle shoulders and the huge pecs

    There are plenty of reasons why girls consciously prefer tall men as well, but I didn't answer that part because I'm not a girl

    ^^^
    Truthful answers
    Is it just looks because it seems that way
    Personality means nothing around where i live
    You dont have the looks, you just get laughed at in the street
    So what do girls actually look for in a guy nowadays?
    Aesthetically it's more about achieving a minimum standard for women rather than being Brad Pitt. Those minimum standards are basically..

    Tall (average height at a minimum)
    Skinny (they don't care if you have abs but they won't go for you if you are fat)
    No major deformities or features. (severe acne ect..)

    Once you reach that minimum standard then confidence is your biggest asset in terms of having the personality to go to a girl and tell her you want the number. From there your other traits will dictate the relationship potential.

    *This applies more to meeting a random girl you desire online or in RL. If you can be friends with a girl through your social group then there's a better chance you can win on personality alone.

    No doubt. We're on a forum where some men are creating threads saying they are 20 year old virgins.

    I've been both fortunate and unfortunate (though all my fault) enough to have gone from the nerdy virgin to basically a player (not out of malice, i simply had no desire for a relationship until my early twenties) to fat guy who gets laid once in a blue moon and all in a decade or so. Hence i have developed a good eye for what women say they want and what they forget to add.

    No, no, no, they obviously just know the hidden secret that all we want is abs, a large D and 6ft+, and not the multitude of other things actual women have listed above.

    They probably just sound bitter about it because they don't have any of those things either.
