Best in women: Personal strength. There is nothing so attractive to me, than a woman that is strong, knows she is strong, and is capable of being a woman within that strength.
Worst in a woman: Expecting her man to know what she means when she speaks (and it is rarely what she says). If you want to say something, then say what you mean, and mean what you say, because that is how I am going to respond.
Best in men: Self-control. Do not tell me that you can fight in combat, but cannot kill a spider. Deal with it.
Worst in men: Liars. I cannot stand them. It is so much easier to tell the truth. And you do not have to keep track of what lies you have told to whom.
I tell you what are three instant turn offs for me
1) if a girl smokes
2) if a girl is hairy (monobrow, moustache etc) (lets not go there)
3) if a girl talks down to you
Best = Kindness
Worst = Competitiveness
Best: into things that interest me the most: sports, outdoors, etc.
Worst: Trying to fix a problem instead of just listening with empathy
Best: Natural nurturers
Worst: Women in groups are catty and obsess too much over trivial things like clothes and makeup
I'd rather hang out with the male species any day.
I have never understood why this is a problem for women. If I'm telling the man in my life about a problem it's because I want it fixed. I don't even want to know their feelings on the "problem". I want it to be fixed. My common line is "just make it happen".

I hate those g*ddamned things! I don't give a shit about those Hollywood assholes.
The worst trait in men used to be crying and whining over thinning hair, but since it became fashionable and cool to shave it off and go bald, I would now say that inappropriate belching and farting top the list.
Speaking of Hollywood celebrities, makes me wonder how this thread would play out over at the DUmp.
