Two Weeks to Valentine's Day

I welcome thoughts on this list of 12 things that, per romanticlounge.com, are "what women want" in a date (edited down by me) ......................................................................................................: 1) Women want a man who is clean and well dressed. 2) Women want honesty and kindness. 3) Be kind and thoughtful. Don't be sappy. No woman likes a man who is falling all over himself trying to impress her. 4) Act natural and be yourself.
If acting natural and being yourself means you will forget to consider her comfort, you will have to work on that. 5) If you are setting the date up, try to set the stage to her likes. 6) Women like compliments. Tell her she looks nice. Look her in the eye when you tell her this. She will not be impressed if you are staring at her breasts when you say this. Don't get carried away with your compliments though. It isn't natural to do this and it can be down right embarrassing. 7) Women like thoughtful acts. 8) Women like to talk about themselves. 9) They also want you to be interested in what they have to say. Don't look around the restaurant while she is talking to you. Don't let your eyes glaze over. Take mental notes. She will expect you to remember all this if you get to the second date. 10) Never, ever talk about past dates with other women. Don't mention your ex-girlfriend or ex-wife. 11) Don't say "I'm Sorry". This is just pitiful. You can say excuse me or pardon me or Oops but never say I'm sorry. You will sound like a school boy trying to get mommies affection. Huge Turn Off! 12) Finally, women don't like to feel pressured on a first date. It would be nice if you could work something into the conversation, early on, that you are not interested in ending the date in bed.

Still leaves alot of unanswered questions. For example, is this acceptable talk on a first date- "You are very atractive,but that Heidi Klum, she is a piece of ass!!" ALso, the list states that women don't like to feel pressured about sex. Well, if she drops hints that she wants "some"?

I find it almost impossible to believe that a list of "what women want" includes NO reference to the man's money or sense of humor. I also disagree with the concept that it helps to tell a woman at the start of the date, "Hey honey. You aren't getting any tonight, nor do I WANT any." Not exactly starting things off on the right path there...........

I ama fraid we are all in trouble unless someone can square #12 (act like u don't want sex) with #2 ( be honest). By my way of thinking, these are mutually exclusive.
