I’m confused, very confused. Women have always been a bit of a mystery to me and two recent survey’s supposedly revealing women’s innermost thoughts have come up with diametrically opposed views as to what women want in a man. But first a word of warning! Because there is little or no news outside of Coronavirus and all its works, survey’s are clearly a desperate attempt at filling newspaper space and giving television and radio presenters something different to prattle on about all day long. Anyway, according to the social bible, Debrett’s - good manners matter most to woman when choosing a man regardless how good-looking the guy might be. Apparently only 5% of women choose good looks in their choice of man, whilst the attraction a chap with loads of loads of money didn’t seem to punch their buttons at all. Women are such liars aren’t they? I don’t believe that for a moment - as in my experience, you can open as many doors for as many women as you like mate, but if a rival should have the looks of Brad Pitt and the cash to go with it, you can compliment all you want, but it will be Brad keeping her warm at night, not the bloke who tells her that her frock looks nice. I suppose if you lack a certain ‘wow’ factor in the looks department, you could try and appear - mean, moody and magnificent - but there is a fine line between that and being slightly mental, if you see what I mean. At this point, lots of experts and friends will appeal to you to be - “Just like yourself buddy.” This is not a good idea, because she doesn’t really want a tight fisted, marginally self-obsessed but kind hearted loser as her lifelong partner, now does she?
