Within what context? Â In general? Â In a prospective date? Â In business? Â I think the answer depends somewhat on the context. Â And it depends a LOT on the woman. Â For instance, I know women who are looking for a meal-ticket (either for dating, travelling and/or marrying). Â They are actually LOOKING for signs of financial security, as in "it's just as easy to fall in love with a rich guy and a poor man". Â While this has never been a strategy of mine, personally, I think it's probably as instinctive as a man looking for a beautiful woman - population growth. Â This woman is looking for a nice looking suit/tie ("he must have an important job - just look how well he's dressed") or a nice watch ("he must be wealthy because he has enough disposable income to pay $xxxxx on a WATCH.") The reason your $40 Diesel watch and/Rolex get more compliments than other more exclusive (more expensive) brands is simple. Â Most women, especially young ones, don't KNOW about luxury watches. Â I know more about menswear than probably 99% of the female population, and I couldn't recognize - by sight - more than 7 or 8 brands without reading the name on the face. Anyway, this category of woman is going to want to know what kind of car you drive, and where you live. Â They aren't alway so subtle about it either. Speaking for myself (as I don't consider myself to fall into the category described above) . . . I notice first a guy's face/hair/teeth. Â I don't understand well-paid men - especially those who make a living with their mouths - having bad teeth. Â Brush them, straighten them, bleach them, cap them. Â Whatever. Anything. Â But if I'm going to have to look at them while he speaks to me (much less the thought of him kissing me.???) Puhlease. Â Fix the teeth. Â I personally prefer the look of a guy with a great hairline. Â That's not that I don't find some bald/balding guys attractive. Â It's not just my "type". Â But as such, I always appreciate a great "do". I notice a guy's clothes, but I don't necessarily disqualify on that basis alone. Â This one can change. Â It may not be a matter of taste/class. Â It might just be a matter of ignorance. Â I've left many better dressed Exes in my wake. Since I love dressing a man, this was a pleasant "hobby" for me. Within a few moments of conversation, though, I find I'm always most impressed by the guy who is confident, comfortable in his skin (good posture, athletic, but pleasant demeanor), intelligent in his conversation, but (probably most of all) has the ability to laugh at himself. As I re-read this, I'm afraid that my rambling may not have directly answered the original question. Â Let me try again, more directly...and I'm speaking here for myself. I notice how a guy looks at me / addresses me. Â If he is cordial, sincere and speaks to me as an equal, I'm always impressed. Â I don't always assume he's flirting, either. I just tend to like guys who walk with purpose, and who look well "put together". Â This could mean any STYLE of clothing. Â But I am actually put OFF by this current trend of ill-fitting "urban" clothes (ridiculous) and some of the 70s revival stuff, which I find comical. Â It was ugly the first time around. Â Still is. Â OK. Â I'll stop now.
