Woah, you do have a sense of humor after all.  Trolling...now that is funny coming from you.  Big Grin

No, dearie, it's just your two-dimensional understanding. You see a word and the context blurs. What, do you think you’re Robin Thicke or something?
No one is trolling you here, deary. But I'm sure you have to tell yourself that so you can continue to avoid the uncomfortable facts.
I've seen zero words of you managing to describe what you claim to know you're attracted to. And this is just more evasion.

Beta man code maybe. Admissions designed to elicit validation from women. IOW, to seek their approval through manipulation.

We’re not sexual beings, nor emotional beings. We’re three dimensional beings.

Imagine how frustrating it would be for a three dimensional being...

The Y chromosome is a hall of mirrors—an inverted-reverse sequence—a palindromic sequence—equal to its reverse complement.  It’s your reversed image. You can’t create us in your image. We’re not you’re complement. We are more than the sum of our genes.
You seem to have missed the "relative to men" part. Particular differences are single dimensions.
Lots of babbling there...while still arduously avoiding that you don't know what you're actually attracted to.

Oh dear!  Blush This is dripping with irony, but this is exactly why I think that so many people have trouble understanding Nietzsche.

He wanted us to think metaphorically about gender by gendering genre but we couldn’t get out of our own way.  It’s the same reason that Goethe never fully understood Newton’s explanation.  He glanced through a prism, noticed a reversed spectrum, and trusted his observation.  Yep, clumsy clamoring. Similar to how you handle topics with your perpetual pawing.

Like I said, we look for the same qualities that we look for in friends.  Although, Jason Momoa comes to mind.  Wink
More evasive babbling. Rolleyes

Maybe it’s just fear.  The fear of being misunderstood.
Maybe you're just insecure enough to feel better about yourself by hanging around with people much less capable than yourself. That's the only fear involved.

Well, I told you but apparently you think you know more than me.  So, let's hear it, big guy.

Want do women want?

No, you didn't...hence me repeatedly calling you on it (for several pages now) until you just suddenly claim you have. If you did, link or quote it. Otherwise, we all know you're lying to keep evading it. So let's have it. What "nice guy" traits do you find attractive? O_o

Contrary to you, I have already told you...which is what started this whole exchange. Very first reply to the OP.

We’re not dumb, we know.

Wheelis was ugly but he could’ve gotten into my pants.  Why, because he knew how to read people and he was willing to put in the effort.

Nietzsche writes that old women are even more skeptical than men because they recognize that the essence of life is its superficiality and all attempts toward profundity merely veil this ‘truth’, which Nietzsche places in scare quotes. Why the scare quotes? Because if the essence of reality is appearance, then our conception of truth, which is usually associated with reality, loses its objective status. The artist knows she created her artwork.

Women want to be understood and that's something that you’re really bad at it.

I have what I want but do you know who’s good at it.  Ben.  He plays poker, which is different from chess.  It requires pattern recognition of players, not pattern recognition for the game itself.

I’ve been playing an ongoing game of chess for years with this guy.  He said that he learned from a professional chess player (an international master) the greatest secret in chess. That is that you should never think more than two, maximum three, moves ahead (and three only in special cases). There is a condition attached to this; that those two-three moves are the best under the circumstances. And there is also an addendum to that condition: That your next move is the best of the two-three step scenario you thought out. This is the best strategy to use in chess, and it's a secret for most. Which is terribly unfortunate, because the wisdom of that strategy should be known by all those who are telling others what they should believe and do.

But what he failed to realize is masters were usually able to correctly predict when the eventual outcome of a move would weaken their position. "Grand masters think about what their opponents will do much more," says Byrne. "They tend to falsify their own hypotheses."  

Something that a crank is incapable of doing…or so I thought.

It's my move.  I'm going to continue the game soon but with a few minor conditions.

He's interesting.

Emotional Cresting
LOL! You think it has to do with pickup?
Even in long term relationships, women want the guy who can make them feel emotionally engaged. Do you think that happens by chance or the usually ruts people naturally get into?

Dysfunctional women will often start pointless arguments just to reengage emotionally.

Getting in a woman's pants has zero to do with looks. It's mostly about social intelligence (for the really attractive women).

That's just an artifice of this rational form of interaction. Well...maybe you're not a really attractive woman. Who knows.

Wow, a lot about strategy and thinking and interest. Not so much about attraction. So, you're saying this guy's chess playing could get in your pants? O_o

Of course not. Why? Because he's not very nice. He's self-absorbed.  It's just an interesting little riddle...a challenge...nothing more, nothing less.

Lots of women have one-nighters.  If I had to choose, Jason Momoa would make the list, but women want to be understood, and this requires effort. Altruistic behavior tops intelligence, Mr. not so nice guy.

So, smart one,*sarcasm* there you have you have it.  Go forth and multiply.  

Let's see if he gets that one.  Big Grin

So if that's not what attracts you, where did you supposedly tell us? O_o
Still evading the question, or just realizing you don't know?

And again, I said you can't do what every silly girl tries to do and imagine "nice guy" traits in an already high status guy, like Momoa (loved SG Atlantis).
So altruistic behavior, alone, can get in your pants? O_o
Even despite being very needy for validation? Or are you just as codependent?

No, but it trumps intelligence.

Enough! *Yawn*

So much evasion that I'm starting to wonder if you even know you're doing it.

I’ve never really bought the whole lunar effect thingy but yesterday was pretty crazy.  I was heading north.  There was a guy, early twenties, barefoot and shirtless, standing on the rail of a really high bridge, and pounding his chest like an ape.  There was no one around to show off for.  He was smiling but something was off.  I’ve got all the cell coverage mapped out now and was able to call.  He wasn’t able to jump from the side he was on because of a pedestrian walkway.  He ran to the other side, but by then, the sheriffs arrived, and were able to tackle him before he jumped.  

I shit you not, fifteen miles further up, a couple was pulled over.  He looked pissed and she was walking backwards.  I flipped around to assess the situation.  She crossed the road and he followed.  I could see her face now and she was crying.  I drove up the hill for service and called in again.  I flipped back around.  Thought I’d stop and just stay in the car until the police got there.  By this time another couple had pulled in.  I told them that the police were on their way.  The guy saw us and went back to his car.  The other woman got out of her vehicle and ran across the street but her husband stayed in the car.  I ran over to them.  She said that they had argued the day before and he was still mad.  He was a big guy.  She was a petite foreigner.  I could barely understand her, but as she calmed down, her English improved.  I asked her if he had a weapon.  He didn’t.  The police arrived and we told him what happened.  She kept looking to me for answers.  She had only been in our country for a short time and didn’t understand our legal system.  I could tell that the cop was trying to weasel out of work.  So, I stayed and explained everything to her.  

The other woman said she thought that something wasn’t right and made her husband turn around (the one that didn't get out of the car).  Lots of men had driven by but no one stopped.  It was two women that came to her rescue.  

Just sayin’  Undecided

Edit:  I forgot to mention that she was bleeding and had a huge knot on her head.
