How about a guy just being himself instead of putting on a show to impress?

I am sort of amazed to see playing guitar on the list. Having played for many years, that one is a bit lost on me. Most of the musicians I have known have had, shall we say, "issues".

Anyway, being considerate would be my first thought at what would impress. By considerate, I don't mean polite, but rather just consider a partner's view in everything.

Skills can impress a person but anyone who hangs a relationship on them is going to find the road rather bumpy.

You need a click of personalities, not to mention a hint of chemistry. When I think about a potential partner, I wonder how we would survive together should some serious health matter or injury or the like affect one of us. Without a physical aspect perhaps to complete the mental or vice versa.

I know that with my ex, we had a lot of things in common both in personalities as well as in likes/dislikes, not to mention points of opposition where we had to learn to compromise. We also had a good chemistry and a need to just be in each other's presence. And now that I have had kidney failure, even with the transplant, I know that I could never ever get back with him cos I know that despite all of the above, he will not be the person I might, and probably will, need in the future.

Learn skills because you want to learn them. Not for anyone else.
Change because you want to or need to. Not for someone else.
Be happy. Happy people are attractive to others.
Be good natured for the same reason.

And be as open as you can to all the possibilities out there. Some will work and some won't, but if you aren't open to them, then who knows what (or who) you might miss.

Love often comes when you aren't looking for it.

That was a difficult selection, but I chose cooking because in the long run, that's what most women admire in my husband. The children work when a woman's clock is ticking, but being cute around children is no guarantee that you'll be a good father. guitars and animals? Guess it depends on the gal. He doesn't cook as much as he used to, but he can still charm a room full of people when he pulls out the pasta machine and does it from scratch. And my nephew recentlly called to thank me for some cooking pointers because it revved up his social life.

If a guy plays the guitar for you, does that make him more attractive or impress you at all. Hmm, maybe impress is not the word im looking for. Im just curious. Im trying to find the RIGHT things to say to a girl rather than the wrong things. Im also trying to find what impresses them. There has to be a universal principle for women.

Thanx all
you want to impress me......I've been married for 35 years and my hubby is not handsome or a hunk but what impressed me was the way he interacted with his mom ..........if guys respect the women in their lives they will respect you, too.........the women at my husband's office call him the "godfather" they love him so much........throw out the gd guitar and get back to the basics...........:):)

I chose Play Guitar and Cooking.

I also love a man who is confident in himself and not trying to be something he's not, just to impress me. It just so happens that I'm a sucker for a man with a guitar (not that my DH plays, but I still LOVE it), and I do like it when guys are a bit olf fashioned and open doors for me and all that.

Honestly, just be yourself and you'll be fine
