Responsive and Attentive

the men in the study thought responsive and attentive women were more attractive as potential partners, while women found men with those same traits to be less desirable.

“Women may perceive a responsive stranger as less desirable for different reasons," said Birnbaum in a press release. "Women may perceive this person as inappropriately nice and manipulative (i.e., trying to obtain sexual favors) or eager to please, perhaps even as desperate, and therefore less sexually appealing. Alternatively, women may perceive a responsive man as vulnerable and less dominant.”

So for now, the question “what do women want?” will remain unanswered.
