Thanks for your comment! I would argue that people in general can be mysterious, not just women, especially when it comes to romantic attraction. That's why we have a whole subfield of psychology devoted to trying to understand it. As you may be aware, there is a sub-culture Looking to settle down with some1 the internet composed of young men who feel that women aren't attracted to "nice guys," put them in a "friend zone," and then go date jerks.
Then there is another sub-culture that says these so-called nice guys Housewives wants real sex north grosvenord connecticut 6255 nice at all, they're really just a part of "rape culture" because feel entitled to sex with women because they were nice to them, as if there is something wrong with a young man being sexually attracted to a woman and being nice to.

I couldn't come up with anything, so it really appeared that women preferred jerks to nice guys. But that really wasn't true.
Many men who are married or in good relationships are nice. So instead it seems that while women may not want jerks, tto seem willing to overlook a lot of flaws when romantic attraction is present, but won't give a decent man the time of day if romantic attraction is not triggered.
