What catches your attention ladies?

This is what I read all the time in the blogs or on profiles. You have to catch my attention or must be able to make me laugh.

Well what do you write to catch the attention, most say don't tell me about your sexual proclivities, or how wealthy you are. Okay, fine
what do you say?

If I say, I graduated magna cum laude and was on the deans list every semester in college, doesn't this sound a trifle pompous.

If I say, I like music and have very eclectic tastes, really do not like or most hip-hop, but I do enjoy most if not all other forms of music. Well, duh don't the majority of people like music.

If I say, I like to work with my hands, building things, doing repairs on vehicles, remodeling all the above. How would that impress or capture someone's interest.

What it all boils down to is how do you stand out in the crowd if you aren't a purveyor of poetry or a wizard of witticisms?

I would really like some concrete suggestions to these dilemma's if anyone has them.

I would really like comments from the women but all are welcomed to.

Well I posted this yesterday and got zero responses and only two views. Will no one comment?

Thanks, have a great day

I honestly cannot tell you what the magic words are for every woman. From what I have read in the magazine articles and blogs, most want you to refer to something in their profile when you write to them. Make sure you match what they are looking for. Try not to make sexual remarks in your first emails. Do not send a picture of "mr. happy" unless she asks for it and you are comfortable sending it.

I think one of the best ways to get someone's attention is to ask a question regarding something she wrote in her profile or blog )if she has one). Unfortunately for you men, this site has a large ratio of men to women. All I can say is keep trying.

Hope this helps

Hi, me again .. lol ...im impressed with you .. from your intelligent comment on my blog is why ... and on a nonsexual subject yet. Also, i had found your global warming post to my liking .... maybe some clues for u there .. of course those elements wont intrigue yer typical broad eh! ... but i bet that's not what u seek anyhow

speaking for me at least, wisdom to not be politically correct, (so many intelligent? people are such predictably "correct" ... sheep) ... being your own person and wise is attractive ... to me.

Posted comment on blog of that fella who went crazy ... eagerly awaiting his brilliant reply / comment on mine ...... deliberately challenged his obviously weak male ego a bit ... lol .... just havin some fun with him.
