    Ok but I'm not asking girls to like good guys...that wasn't the point of the thread. I'm not a "nice guy" myself.

    The point of the thread was to say that women are complicated and baffle me, and ask for contradictory things.

    This may be my own shortcomings and lack of emotional sensitivty. I never denied that.

    However it is a fact that I don't understand women, and this thread expresses that. Why did I feel the need to express it? Who knwos, stress, probably.

    Didn't think I did, but maybe I do and just don't realize it, just like the women I am talking about don't consider their behaviour contradictory either.

    My specific problem of understanding was the one expressed in the OP: which was not just "why do women like assholes". One which I don't think applies to men, for pretty obvious reasons I guess (social programming is different for men and women).

    In any case though we're only going round in circles...I promised to express myself better when I was more rested, and I stick by that.

    This makes me think that maybe I really don't express myself well, at all. I was never complainging "Why do women go for assholes?"...! This was never at all the point of my post!

    OOOOOOOOOKKKKK

    When I say "asshole", I don't mean Stiffler.

    For example: I come across quite cold and self-assured. Certain kinds of owmen find this attractive. But then, they want you to be somethign else too. But then, if you were to become something else, they'd no longer be interested, for example.

    This is just one example. Please can I clarify then: When I say "asshole" I do not mean high school bully, and when I say "women who like assholes", I don't mean a cheerleader who dates the quarter back.

    Rather I am exaggerating personality traits in order to portray things. "Simplify the rhyme just to amplify the noise" as Eminem said.

    Well, no. Contradictions are the specialty of women.
    A lot can be said about men, but it's true that women are way more ambiguous.
    Guys are usually easier to figure out.

    hey that makes sense...totally get that and i'll tell ya why...because on first glance a woman sees a guy who's not fawning all over her...must have his own shit going on...seems confident...not easily intimidated...intriguing...what does he have going on? why is he so confident? who's in there and what is he all about? so...they want to find out...when they do...they'll either be turned off because that self assuredness was actually just coldness wrapped up in an superiority complex...or...they'll see that there isn't much there at all...or at least anything they can relate to and become bored...or...they like you...you like her...and you spend your days at home depot for the next 20 or so years.

    So where do I find a woman who likes coldness wrapped up in a superiority complex?

    Joking...but yes, this reply makes a lot of sense.

    So, we're making progress: women want 1.) someone driven and with direction in their life,
    2.) emotional intelligence.

    Now ok, I'll admit my own shortcomings happilly, but, that's a lot to ask for!

    For a man that's baffling you see, most guys I think are happy with someone they find to be nice as a person, fairly attractive (relative to the guy in question), and of a similair intelligence level to themselves. Simple...almost primitive I guess you could say.

    lol

    Well I'm sure men want a "connection" as well, but as listable traits go, I reckon I was close to the mark, and men are pretty straightforwards in this regard whereas women, less so...

    ...though I'm happy to be corrected!
