I suppose they meant it in a subtler way, don’t know, part of the masculine look attracting women and then analysis would show what exactly the masculine features were. I’m just guessing, though.
I tend to think that looks are not everything as far as attraction goes.
Yeah, and that’s also true of female-to-male attraction. Looks aren’t static, anyway. The way the girl moves is also important and well, there’s always that something which isn’t really just looks.
I think that a man’s speaking voice plays a huge role in attraction, actually.
Yeah, and some more serious studies seem to confirm that, although I’m not able to give you a link.
I think if a man has a somewhat deeper voice (not effeminate) but yet a sensitive, caring tone in his voice (so you don’t feel like you are being barked at) that is attractive.
Yup, I agree. Theoretical things I’ve read and the input from my female friends confirms that as well. I wouldn’t say it’s exclusively a female feature. My ex had a beautiful voice and it was a major factor.
but I am not interested in the super macho, dominating, “love em and leave them type”.
Well, you’re Catholic, so you’re on the non-macho-loving side of that study.
I would like a man that treats me with respect.
That’s rare with women, again, I suppose it has to do with the effect of conscious preference on attraction and the process of choosing. And it may have to do with most women taking the pill. Then again, writers have complained about women being attracted to those who treat them badly long before the wide spread of contraception. Part of this may be a biological factor relating to strength - brutes are strong and not well-versed in communication since they are fighters. That, and brutes are confident. Here comes the somewhat culturally conditioned attraction to a combination of confidence and mystery. To some extent it’s understandable that people are attracted more to those who don’t bow down in half but instead talk frankly, since those can be relied on for honest advice and they’re also open books for reading. I’ve heard women complain about men’s attraction to bad girls and women who don’t treat them well, either, so I guess it’s a general human factor that we’re inclined to fight for the attention of those who aren’t ready to give it away. Personally, I think I’ve managed to get over it, but I’ve noticed I’m not really impressed if people repeat my words in total agreement and all such.
Anyway, I do wonder, since I would think the pill should redue libido, hormone levels and whatnot, so it shouldn’t make the recipient more inclined towards machos. On the other hand, maybe low levels of hormone prenecessitate strong masculine features in a prospective partner for any notice?
