Women Are More Attracted To Men Whose Feelings Are Unclear

Special Valentine's day articles today. Here is an advice to all men: shut-up!

It turns out there may be something to “playing hard to get.” A study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, finds that a woman is more attracted to a man when she is uncertain about how much he likes her.

Forearms do it for me too ... preferably with lovely big, manly yet soft, hands at the end of them!

for me they dont have to be soft...
in fact.. i prefer men that aren't soft at all

yes, Dougal, they have to be intelligent too!

Hair, i am not fussed. He does need a little, else he might just look like some of my girlfriends and i do want to know that he is a man!

oh, and he has to be able to run, swim and ride faster than me


is that too much to ask ?

Re: Women Are More Attracted To Men Whose Feelings Are Unclear

I say it's all in the nose. It's his understated sexual odor oozing from every pore that discreetly creeps its way through my nose and into my brain. One whiff and ping! attraction.

All you need is to stand at the FINISH line of a triahtlon event and pick up according to timing, back and forearm shapes.

Re: Women Are More Attracted To Men Whose Feelings Are Unclear

Forty-seven female undergraduates participated in the study - so the position is quite understandable, I had all kinds of funny ideas when I was that age as well.

A few years of those "unclear feelings" and it will seem a lot less attractive, I promise you. Because one will figure out that if a man is interested, you will know it. If you are not sure, he is not interested and instead of trying to change his mind, it's more efficient to go and find someone who actually likes you.

Very logical approach, however I'm fairly certain a majority of people do not follow logic when searching out a partner.

Re: Women Are More Attracted To Men Whose Feelings Are Unclear

There are just too many nice guys out there who do make their feelings clear from the get-go so why waste time and space (space-time even) on those who don't!? They can go play hard to get with themselves! Next! ...
