Attraction is a fickle thing that varies from person to person. We all know what we are "supposed" to be into when it comes to those of us who prefer a man: a tall, wealthy, muscled gentleman who is exactly sensitive enough, but not too sensitive. He's athletic, but not a total gym bunny, he's smart but not too nerdy, he's creative but not impractical, and he's great in bed (usually meaning very experienced) but absolutely monogamous when he meets the right person.
Of course, in real life, it's really not that simple. Attraction is a very singular thing. People like very different things - and we also dislike different things too. One person's great conversationalist is another's crashing bore, just as one person's successful partner is an absentee workaholic who only cares about money, and another's sensitive artist is an impractical loser. What one sees as recklessness, another might see as a delightful spontaneity, while being laid-back can look very much like not caring enough, and being kind can tip over into being somewhat of a doormat.
