LOL..you're completely misunderstanding me. Also, you don't know what insecure and egotistical men do?? these are just the majority of what I and many other women attract, not 100% of them. honestly, I don't know which is the lesser of the two evils, but I guess depending on the level of insecurity, I'd rather take that guy over the egomaniac.

oh geeze..its not about bravery. its about the kind of man I'm looking for. that's why I show interest. most men read too far into a woman's signals anyways so its not like I have to show that much interest.

You are attracted to the kind of man who will take initiative, ask you out, and so on. I am attracted to the kind of woman who also does those things. Makes me feel that she is into me as well. Signals, indirect messages, body language, etc. sure, it’s cute, but I like more than that and the girls I go out with do as well. Whatever rocks our boat, right?

That's a good philosophy to have. Don't wait for guys to make a move, because lots of us are clueless.

Actually, MrsCPG has said repeatedly that she married me because I was the only man who was unafraid of her. On the second date, she said something not-so-nice to me and I basically told there that no woman on the planet was hot enough to talk to me like that, which kind of shocked her because I'm a pretty affable sort. She apologized and knew, by our fourth date, that she was going to marry me.

And the majority of women prefer that. We all have our preferences, that's all .

But how do you know he'll catch on?

That is true. Men who are really good looking are all gay and should be avoided like the plague by strait women. Examples: Brad Pitt:, Ryan Reynolds: , Mark Wahlberg: , LS Jaun:STRAIGHT

Us men who are of the "Plain" variety are almost always straight!
