Sorry, Ziggy29, I was quoting the maid. It IS possible that she does not speak for all women.

Do gals notice a guy's clothes and jewelry?
I notice and am not a fan of jewelry or polyester.
I notice good quality duds and accessories. A well worn pair of Mephistos impresses me more than a shiny pair Eastland's.
Leave the sweet aftershave on the shelf please and for gosh sakes don't smear chapstick past the edge of your lips - shiny upper lip is just gross.
On the flip side of the taste spectrum and somewhat embarrassingly, I love jerry garcia silk ties. Just goes to show - no one is perfect

Whoa, those are some bad ties, Janet! I'm trying to picture on on my guy, and I'm not seeing it. And thanks for that shiny upper lip visual. Blech!

Those ties have spunk. I would wear them but not to something formal or a funeral.

You ladies sure have a long list. My guess is your real requirements get closer to 1) He is breathing. 2) He isn't hitting me up for money and 3) He'll do me, and he isn't too awful at it.

Well Dude, this is an internet forum, remember? Anyway, what is wrong with this language? Maybe slightly realistic, but not disrespectful I hope.

I LOVE seeing men doing manly things....like hammering, fixing things, and working on their cars! Lumberjack shirts are great....love the rugged look! I don't care much for the jewelry and blue/green eyes are my downfall.
I would not be able to volunteer with all those cops around....men in uniform are UBER sexy! I would absolutely lose my mind around them!

It's a dangerous job, but somebody's got to do it.

I'm sure they'd be more than willing to take you. Just tell them you are there "to serve".

Believe it or not, many years ago I dated a volunteer cop. She worked full time for my company, but in a different city. And she played cop on weekends. I remember taking her to a football game and there was a drunk fan a few rows behind us. She quietly said would be right back and when she returned, a couple of cops were following her. She pointed out the drunk and they hauled him off. She got a round of applause from the people near by. Later that night, I gave her my own round of applause.

No, likely much worse. Picking up women isn't one of my goals in life generally, or on this board in particular. My major goal here is to just pass some time with people I feel like I know.

This sounds more like the requirements a guy would come up with

Seriously though, most women I know notice looks but find other traits much more important. I've been with my DH since '73 and we married in '74. Reflecting back on why I was attracted to him and have stayed with him all these years, one thing stands out. He's a nice guy. I remember noticing the healthy relationship he had with his family and how he was kind to others, particularly those going through a difficult time. He has been especially kind to his nephew who has been through many trials and tribulations and is the kind of guy who stops to help someone in need. Whenever it snows, he's the guy helping people get their cars unstuck.

Another trait I find important is a good sense of humor and many studies have indicated women do find this very attractive. Who wants to spend their life with a negative person? A good sense of humor can ease the pain of many difficult times...take this economic mess for example.

yep, that has been working for DH for some time now, like nearly 20 years. But my standards are low.
