    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that most women seem to be attracted by guys who are highly arrogant, or complete *******. Women complain that there are no nice guys around, yet they seem to constantly make the wrong choice when it comes to relationships. Do they not learn? It is quite puzzling.
    Probably because nice guys don't ask them out, the jerks beat them to it.

    You obviously aren't learning from your experiences if you're still going for the wrong girls.

    There are too many people who say that they cant get a girl because they're a "nice guy".
    No girl is going to dislike you on account of you being nice. The real reason is because nice guys have a tendency to lack confidence, wit and charm.
    I'm not saying that I can't 'get a girl' because I'm a 'nice guy'. I'm just stating that women tend to go for guys who treat them like crap. Personally I don't think I lack confidence, the total opposite actually. Who knows, maybe they were formulated to become attracted to danger? Probably the reason why red is associated with feminism.

    How can it be a generalisation when I have personally experienced it? I'm not following a general belief with not substance, I have experienced it first-hand. I don't see why you strongly deny it when you know it's true. The truth hurts.

    You're making the assumption that it's a choice who a person is attracted to. If you like spending time around someone, it is difficult not to. Don't become bitter about it, instead make yourself more attractive to women (and no, it doesn't require you to become self-absorbed and arrogant).
    It is a choice though. Your mind-set, your experiences, all factor into it.

    You choose your experiences, you choose those experiences which then evolve to give you a certain mind-set.

    You choose how you interprete them, how you think of them.

    We humans do have 'instincts', but we are far more intelligent, far more sophisticated than mere animals.

    Good guy: A person who is faithful, respects women and acknowledges what they have before them.

    Bad guy: A person who is deceitful, disrespects women and disacknowledges what they have before them.
    Being deceitful doesn't make you bad, - (it's not good either) but I'm just saying there could be good guys that have given in to the moment and felt really guilty about it and realised there mistake. Also "acknowledges what they have before them" what do you mean 'acknowledge' nod your head at a girl and you expect her to courtesy? No that sounds awful! but honestly most guys seem faithful and respecting of women have you thought maybe its like a "good cop - bad cop" tactic. girls are curious creatures! no one wants someone deceitful and disrespecting but we can still be drawn in to check if its a tactic?
    does that make sense? LOL

    So your anecdotes are now scientific evidence on which to make broad statements about an entire sex.

    :rolleyes:

    I like the end sentence, are you trying to imply that my boyfriend is an undesirable candidate in your eyes?

    Oh my, you have serious misinterpretations. I haven't stated the fact that I've personally experienced such things, simply witnessed. I like my facial hair thank you very much.

    Feeling attracted isn't a choice, you merely recognise it when you do. You can't just pick a guy who you think is nice, and then make yourself attracted to him. Maybe you can resist cocky guys, but you will be judging them without giving them a chance.

    (And humans are animals, and the degree of choice we have usually isn't all it's assumed to be.)

    I'm not bothered by the fact you have an opinion, but it's annoying when you take my words out of context. Please read some of my posts. Where did I once imply that your boyfriend is an 'undesirable candidate'?

    QUOTE: I think I'm mature enough to make smart decisions and learn from my experiences.

    I wasn't misinterpreting... You claimed you were learning from your own experiences.

    Also you come across as quite arrogant, saying that girls have an illogical mindset... Not really a compliment is it?

    I personally think over-confidence leads to arrogance.

    Female attention > Confidence > More female attention > Over-confidence > Arrogance.

    p.s I don't see why some people are taking this to heart, I'm not trying to offend anybody, just simply have a discussion without the creation of a gender war.

    I was implying about your quote which indicated that that I had said something in connection with your relationship.

    How can a person's opinion be perceived as arrogance if it's their own interpretation? That means that the whole world is arrogant because people have different views and beliefs. You're trying to portray me as somebody who has something against women. If you think about it, it's not really fair. I'm not subjecting you to anything. :rolleyes:

    No its that the guys that attract women are the ones who challenge them, don't come across as needy and desperate and are self amused not seeking approval or validation from the girl.

    I haven't once said it's bad, but would you say it's a good trait to have?
    It really depends in what way the person is arrogant like I said.
