Basically most of the men I know like low maintenance chicks as my husband says. He does also appreciate it when I look nice but that doesn't have to be how it always is.
    True. But that only works for women who are pretty to begin with.

    Personally, I often find the women who use the least make-up the most attractive. Also, pretty is not the same as attractive in my book. One can be one without the other, and vice versa.

    Looks don't really matter that much anyway. Charm, karisma and attitude is the key.

Eventually, when I've dated someone for a while I'll do a table date, but never right away. Part of it is that a table install a natural barrier to communication and conversation. This side is mine and that side is yours.

      I'll meet for a drink or tea or something or find something interesting to do and usually it doesn't cost all that much.
      Plus, if you're sitting next to each other, you can read body language better and its more condusive to flirting.

        Pretty and sexy can be 2 totally different animals. You either have both or you don't. My husband may not be the best looking guy but he got me with his sense of humor.

          It was mine at one point as well, it just didn't work. You'll also avoid serial daters that just want you to buy them dinner anyway. I look for somewhere quiet enough that we can talk but still out in public which can be hard to find.

              How can you read body language better if your sitting next to someone. Your using peripheral vision which is not as accurate.

                    I too find it much harder to look down a woman's shirt if I have to wrench my eyes to the side.

                        Dude, I cannot even get them past my calves. WTF is wrong with clothes these days? Hell, I barely can get hold of jeans my 32/32 waist size. Sheesh!

                        And for all you ladies posting in this thread, do you know why? Because you are some nosy little critters who constantly get into trouble that men have to save your sorry asses from.

                        which makes us feel all manly and all that, and is why we still love you to bits.

                          There aren't enough double-jointed bisexual nymphomaniac redheads in the world. I have conclusive proof: I only have 1 of them. This is obviously a mistake on Mother Nature's part.

                            This thread is way more interesting than the girly ones. Maybe because it has so far been about fashion, bitches and sex, instead of periods.

                            Although not one dude has mentioned boobies yet.

                              Pants in general are the bane of anyone with any sort of leg musculature. I wear a size 1 waist. I would have to buy upwards of a size 6 in some manufacturers just to have ciriculation in my lower extremities.
                              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
