(Washington Post)   Unsure of what they're doing wrong, scientists embark on an elaborate study of what women really want on the dance floor. Submitter thinks maybe he sees the problem already   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 38

Not your fault, Subby, since the WaPo article was from today, but this is about a study from July... 2010.

The scientists aren't the only ones who are unsure about what women want. Women are unsure about what they want as well.

They want first and foremost: 6' 3"

Secondarily, exhibit the moves that show you could defend her from an attacking tiger.

Class dismissed.

I love dating sites. Majority of the women want a Tall Man.
But never say what makes tall, well, tall.
they may say, "taller than me"
Which helps, because most of them are 5'2" and weight 224#.

Be attractive, don't be unattractive.

Or if certain R&B tracks are to be believed, they wan't to feel your erection pressing against them.

As men, I thought we all agreed to give up dancing and just watch the women dance with each other to the Thong Song?

I am positive that they want me to grind my dick on them. They all want that. All of them.

That's what they want.

I think Women as a group want to be treated and appreciated as individuals.

But they also want you to be sexually aggressive, but only when it's appropriate to them, but you have to press their boundaries, but only when they want you to, but especially when they don't, but you have to respect them as people, but make it clear you want to make dirty love to them, but are a gentleman.

Also be 6' or taller, have an olympic athlete body, and be happy with them regardless of what their body shape is, otherwise you're shallow.

Not sure what these nerds were trying to do. Instead of indicating other known predictors of attraction, they should have factored them out to get the effect of dance. Anyway, women (and men) like to see rhythm and grace in dancers. That's it. Have that and they will want to dance with you , because you,
as the lead, will make them look like they have rhythm and grace.

Pretty much this. This is all you really need.

I'm pretty sure that what they want on the dance floor is a guy with a wad of 100's in his pocket.

Add up all the stupid lists that appear on Facebook and I figure there are about 400 separate things men need to worry about and obsess over to make a woman happy on a daily basis.

Are they gonna tell us what they want, what they really really want?

You must be talking about those ladies they show in advertisements and tv shows. I've met some of them a few times in real life. Pretty sure I'm not even the same species. They all look like shampoo models.

I said one time I wanted to date only thin women. I had a woman (she self-identified as an "athletic" body type) e-mail me and the convo went this way:
Her: "Well, Shark what is thin?"
Me: "Uh, Thinner than me"
Her: "Ok, what's that"
Me: "150 or less"
Her: "Kilograms?"
Me: "No Pounds"
Her: "Wow that's thin"

I put down my height as 5'11" (my actual height is 5 foot 11.5 inches yeah I'm skinny wanna fight about it?) and I was too short. Listed myself at 6' even and those same women then gave me the internet-time-of-day. Really weird how we are wired. Glad I'm married now, don't have to deal w/ that crap anymore.

then wait for the chicks to roll in

Actually, not really. Most people doing the internet dating thing, after an initial burst of 'holy crap look look' type enthusiasm settle down to a dull grey roar of listlessness. Women, especially, get dozens of hits a day, so they can be super choosy about just parsing the ones who meet their criteria, since, hey, wait a minute, here's another 30 hits.

Plus in an online setting, you only have the most raw physical stats to measure with; a good headshot or general set of photos, then whatever they self describe, so most people, after a while, just kinda get dispirited with the entire thing and go 'nope, nope, nope, ok, sure, why not, she won't ever respond, good fark what is that?, no, pretty, out of my league, too young, too old, too many kids, not enough kids, etc.'

I mean, most people using internet dating are using it for a reason, and I say this as someone who's used it for a while, and obviously had overwhelming success.

The article addresses what women think makes a good dancer, not a good dance partner.

Move smoothly, with some rhythm, generally shadowing her movement.
Look at her feet, her face and those around you.
Smile and remember you're there to show off her moves. No one wants to see yours.

Save your Livin' On A Prayer interpretive dance for your closest friends.
