Anything above that is extra points. Love the person you're with.
Hmm, you and andy seem to be on the same page. I love to have fun if i can afford it.

I have found that (almost universally) women like a guy who is self-assured. Yes, definitely, be yourself... but don't be a wimp. You can be sensitive and responsive to a woman's needs without losing yourself in her. Have interests and don't be all "whatever you wanna do is fine... whatever you wanna have for lunch is fine" etc, etc. Make and own your decisions. If you act like you like yourself it will make it easier for others (women and men) to like you, too.

One of the many reasons that I fell in love with hubby is that he's spend hours playing the piano and singing to me. Yep, music does it.

Musician = poor. Unless you are Eric Clapton, possessing both his skill and bank account, playing guitar isn't likely to impress. I like a guy who cooks. At least with someone who cooks, you know he'll be of help.

Things that impress women the most
Guy playing with children-interacting with them, sure.
Guys that cook-with me or better than me would be cool.
Guys that play guitar--depends on how good they play, if it is aweful, no thanks.
Guys that like animals--as pets or for dinner?

Men are all different and none of the above matters if they are 'good at heart', kind, thoughtful, caring...

If you are looking to date on of them then that might help you out a little, but if the person you are interested in is not participating in the poll then it is pretty useless IMO.
I agree. I was just trying to find things that are universal for each women and i think i found them. There is the top 3 and then the whole Be yourself and not fake.

IMO, the best way to impress a woman is to cook for her. Invite her over, offer a glass of white wine, a cosmo, or other "womens" drink while you put the finishing touches on dinner. It doesn't have to be fancy, just done well. Canned ravioli is out. Refuse any offer of help, and talk to her all the while, and LISTEN Most women are so used to doing for others, that they love to be catered to. Any dissenting opinions, please post.

Switching sides here.
My sister-in-law's husband once told me that on his second date she invited him over and cooked him dinner. That dinner impressed him so much so that he knew right then and there that this woman was the one to marry. They've been married 26 years.
