What kind of guys do ladies really like? I only ask because I find that many ladies around my age (25) are with players (womanizers). I’ve always wondered if this is due to the fact that ladies prefer players or the fact that players are simply good at manipulating women. My theories. 1. Many women do NOT prefer players,… but players are more aggressive than nice-guys. They aggressively pursue relationships and lie and manipulate to get what they want. Players don’t feel anxiety around ladies because they don’t really care about what women think. There main goal is sex as oppose to love. This shallow goal makes it much easier for them to approach women without fear. The player’s ability to lie, impresses ladies because they are unaware of the player’s flaws. They also are unaware that the player is a player because he manipulates the woman into believing whatever he wants….So deep down many ladies really do NOT want players but end up in relationships with them because they are more aggressive, seem more available, and are good deceivers. 2. Many women do prefer players. Many women say they want a nice-guys but they really want a relationship with a player. They like the arrogance, excitement, and unpredictable nature of a player. Players are sometimes physically attractive, so that is enough for women to become interested. They dislike nice-guys because they want serious relationships…where as many women are just looking for a man to hang-out with and have sex with. Many women don’t want to commit and they like a man who cares more about himself than others. They also dislike the fact that nice-guys will speak of love early in the relationship and want to spend a lot of time around their sweetheart. Many women dislike men who express emotion because they feel emotional talk is effeminate. 3. Women dating players is not a common phenomenon. It is only a phenomenon that occurs among peers in my community and on T.V. My subjectivity and lack of social experience has rendered me blind to the realities of life.
