Things I've found the majority of women deem essential in their men:

-tall
-average sized
-masculine looking
-reasonably attractive face
-not obese/anorexic
-not balding

things most men deem essential in women:

-shorter than them (though really short men probably compromise)
-not obese
-reasonably attractive face
-feminine


Thoughts? I think the stigma of women caring less about looks is a myth, and they're actually in a position to be more choosy. Guys appreciate things like big boobs but rarely have I seen them considered a prerequisite

And yes, I realize these are generalizations, but then so is the stigma that men care more about looks than women.

I agree with you. As a guy I meet your criteria above. If I'm out with friends who don't meet your criteria so much, I tend to get more attention from the ladies.

I agree with your post.

Judging from the dating habits of all of my friends and my own personal experiences in the real world - men care about looks more than women. However, that isn't to say that women don't care at all.

That's not to say women have the higher sex drive, men still carry that honor. But they would also be more willing to compromise on looks to get sex. I think women place high value on looks for social status or just aesthetic appeal or something.

I think you need to add feminine looking to the list of things men look for... I don't think most men like a woman that looks like a guy. As for "average sized dick" I don't think women ask men to whip it out at the bar so she can see if she's interested in him. But if you want to keep things fair, men tend to look at boobs a lot.

Do that and the lists are equal

And open minded people think men care more?
