After watching a TV documentary about this, I got compelled to write my thoughts.
There’s no such answer to who is the better sex, because we men have 50% of what women don’t have and women have 50% of what men don’t have.
Both men and women can be dominant and both men and women can be submissive.
We tend to view women as thinking more verbally (words are more true for them), having stronger feelings than men, and working dominance more indirectly, through associating with dominant people and subtle positioning. Women feel connectedness through communicating (talking things through).
Men supposedly think spatially, have weaker feelings than women, and work dominance more directly. Men feel connectedness through doing things together.
Although there are so many exceptions to these observations it almost renders them worthless.
There’s more important differences, though – for describing society, a very important difference is that men have a wider intelligence distribution than women. Which means, there are more dumb men than women – and there are more smart men than women. With women intelligence tend to distribute slightly more similar to the bell curve.
I believe women both prefer and are attracted to men who care what women like. Whether that means ensuring that she’s pleased during sex, respecting her social contracts, or paying careful attention to what she is communicating.
There are infinite resources by experts backing this claim up. In fact, the term “rapport” we hear so often means to have an understanding of the other person’s reality.
Understanding a woman’s need to be perceived a certain way and understanding the void she wants to be filled as the key part of his whole model for seducing her, and getting her back to you. In Text your ex back they actually talks about this in details.
Women not liking men who care if women like them is a different story. Confusing? See it this way: Women like men who have a strong sense of self.
As a caveat : We must also assume that the men women are mostly attracted too have good communication skills (listening, speaking, body-language), have at the very least a decent quality social network and project high status.
If we were to use this logic we could assume that a “guy A” doesn’t care what women think. He has poor hygiene, lacks communication skills and generally is nerdy. This guy may not have much desire to get women and therefore doesn’t really care what women think.
He is not attractive.
I’m assuming rather that women like men who have some degree of indifference which stems from confidence in themselves. In this case – yes, a lot of the time indifference can be very attractive. It lends itself an aura of mystery.
For the original statement to hold up – we have to assume that the guy already possesses a lot of skills to start – but even then the statement is somewhat misleading.
‘Like’ and ‘Attraction’ to me are not exactly synonymous.
Women may be attracted to guys who don’t show interest, but in the long run of successful relationship building men need to have a heart and actually care what women ‘like.’
Summed up: Indifference can definitely be attractive (assuming the guy has something to back it up with i.e. other things that make him attractive), but in a grander scheme you will go further if you actually pay attention to what your women like.
