I’m no great expert on “what women want.” I’d venture a guess that there’s a great deal of variety, which breaks down by educational background, age, income, and ethnicity.
I think that one nearly universal trait, however, is that women are all about other women. Whether it’s their mothers or their friends, they will generally only pick a guy if they think other women will approve. Ideally, the man should raise the woman’s status among her female friends and especially with her mother. What actually goes on in private and in the bedroom is not initially as important as the status payoff she’s hoping to get. Over time, intimacy becomes very important, but I think intimacy only enters the scene after the status requirements are met.
Confidence is a signal of high status. Many women are drawn to it because they want the status. Once a relationship gets going, however, that same confidence can become a problem (he might have a roving eye, or simply not be that interested in her). That’s when relationship skills, kindness, courtesy, ethical behavior, and overall “niceness,” really become valuable.
To get a woman interested, impress her with your status. To keep her interested, practice good relationship skills.
