You have to EARN it, boys

I've been on a dating spree lately. It has not gone well...

The guy that talked about himself for several hours, the misanthorpe, the guy whose OkCupid photos were VERY deceptive, the genius that discovered 30 minutes before our date that he didn't have any dough, and a host of other gents that really didn't deserve my time in the first place.

Guys: take it from me, you have to come correct.  There are things that women, even highly independent women like myself, need:

-you need to be interested in us, ask questions, we like that.
-you need to be a gentleman, even if we're not terribly good at being a lady.
-you need to be responsible. Keep control of your finances. Because if you can't keep up with that, what else can you not keep up with?
-you need to be attentive.
-you need to be honest, to a fault. Nothing is a bigger turn-off than a liar.
-you need to follow through on your promises.
-you need to communicate! What do you want, what do you need? If you don't tell us, we don't know.
-you need to be able to make a decision: where would you like to have dinner? What do you want to do tonight? Stop asking for our opinion, if we've got an issue we'll tell you.
-you need to have a lot of confidence. If you don't love yourself, how are we ever going to love you?

There's about a billion other things that make a man attractive to a woman, but these are the basics. If there was a training course, merit badges and all, this artist would need to design them.
