It doesn't all boil down to having chicken legs and skinny arms—women find you less masculine for lacking aspirations in life, having an inability to make small talk with her family, never saying "I love you," and more.
25 Reasons Women Think You’re a Wimp

Not to point out all your flaws, but there are some things you say and do that turn women completely off. You can have a colossal chest, a formidable pair of forearms, and a killer six-pack, but none of that matters if you're rude to a waitor at dinner, give a crappy handshake (c'mon, work on your grip strength, man!), or can't engage in meaningful conversation.

She wants you to be mature enough to commit to her but not be too clingy, make the plans for dates but not be too indecisive about it. We asked 25 women for the scenarios that piss them off the most. Don't sweat it; it's all for your benefit.
