Women seek strength.
Strangely how so many cannot distinguish between strength and violence, yet underneath it all, the women in Western culture are drawn to strength and its manifestations.
Remember that understated strength is always preferred to the brute display of power. The latter can turn many off, as it borders too closely to violence, and violent people can never be trusted to channel their aggression.
Another words, if a woman sees that a man who is prone to violence, she will suspect that he will soon become violent toward her, and that is (or should be) a big warning sign.
“But what really attracts you is his strength and air of purpose. The way other men obey, and follow and fear him. The air of command, of power and with it, success” (Wilbur Smith)
