    This is a poll to discover how the hell a woman thinks.

    As you can check, the option "1+2+3+4+5" is forbidden. Such men are not found in this planet.

    I also want to make a complaint about the limit of 100 characters in each option as the system requires. That's a pity, because each option has lost crucial information because of that reduction.

    I hope you will get some female input on this.

    I find that I am rejected on the basis of my looks before they even have time to know me well enough to reject me based on my income. :redface:

    There goes spender with another wonderfully enlightened statement. Is there a particular reason that you say things like this? Have you even ever stepped foot on North American soil?

    In order to obtain an accurate result, please men do not taunt this poll voting. I think voting is only morally allowed to women. If all of us start to vote, we won't come to any real conclusion.

    Exactly my thoughts. Men answering the poll would be..not usual, should we say :)

    I'm glad you put personality and intelligence together in one choice! Those two together are the most important for me. Intelligence alone isn't enough, nor is personality alone. If they've got both of those going for them, everything else starts to look really good. Physical appearance might get a guy noticed from a distance, but if nothing intelligent comes out of his mouth when he starts talking, it's not going to get him any further than that. For me, it's quality conversation that wins me over, which does require both intelligence and personality (i.e., wit).

    There are 10 or so over here. That is a small universe, but enough to obtain statiscal data.

    You can always add any further clarifications in your post.

    I'd say number two has two of the important things I look for in a man, but there are other qualities that I look for.

    I remember reading an article in the newspaper a few years ago about a couple in their 90's that had been married almost 80 years and were still as much in love as they were when they first met. The wife said that her mother told her to "look for a man with a kind face". So that's what she did. That bit of advice has stayed with me. Not so much in appearance but as a personality trait.

    I want a man that is intelligent, funny, kind, thoughtful, not clingy, is either boring (or doesn't mind that I am) or even better, he doesn't think I'm boring! He has to be honest with me. If I find out a guy hasn't been honest with me, that ends it for me, I need to be able to trust the person I am involved with.

    Physical appearance comes after all of the above. If he has the above qualities, it doesn't matter too much what he looks like. For me, eyes and hands are the most important features in a man.

    Judging from your manner of speaking, are you talking from personal experience?

    Just curious :rolleyes:

    Spender, that is not the least bit true. See my reply above. Money is pretty far down near the bottom of the list. Heck, there are still quite a lot of people who get married young, before they have even gotten beyond entry level jobs, and struggle through those first years together. Those who get married later are usually already pretty self-sufficient and financially secure on their own, so the income of their partner really doesn't matter.

    Ok, only two women have responded to the thread so far, so some guy has voted for option #3, that vote doesn't count.

    What about the option 5?

    Please be sincere and admit that most women behave that way. Why?

    Actually, yes. I thought that was what Clausius was looking for, our own personal opinions, which of course are based on personal experience.

    I can't think of anyone I've ever dated who I was physically attracted to when I first met him. Not that they were necessarily unattractive, just not someone you'd pick out of a crowd as "hot." I became attracted to them through conversation. Once the conversation got interesting, then everything about them became interesting.

    I actually find it a turn-off for a guy to walk up to me in a bar or club and based on appearances alone, ask me out for a date or request my phone number, etc. If, instead, they ask to join me at a table and sit down to have a conversation, and if the conversation goes well, I'm far more likely to be receptive to trading numbers or going on a date.

    No, I don't think that's the case at all, though if someone is more interested in superficial traits, like appearances before intelligence, then 5 is more likely to go along with that. As we've discussed before, superficial people attract other superficial people.

    I have to agree with Moonbear on #5. I really dislike men that are into playing games. There are stupid women that are into games, but why would you want to pursue a woman like that? If you run across a woman/girl that fits #5, she's a loser (personality), move on.
