What I learned in this thread.

1) be polite

2) she brought up a topic she knows about. Don't try and outsmart her on it.

3) you are not your Car/Guitar/paycheck.

4) Feminism is better than misogyny.

5) If you know nothing about the topic you are talking about, let her know, ask her about, and be interested/appear interested.

6) offer to pay ONCE. After that, offer to go Dutch. If she denies that, then let her pay, because she wants to. ^this ^should ^be ^done ^on ^every ^date, ^not ^just ^the ^first ^one.

7) SHE is interesting, and you are interested. ACT LIKE IT!!

8) Sex is secondary, unless she initiates. They aren't jealous of past "conquests"

9) you aren't a gorilla, quit beating your chest, and having a dick size competition with every guy there.

10) women talking bad about other women is reserved for women only, and the ones that do that, are probably bitches. You do it, you look just as bad as the girl you are bad mouthing.

Did I miss anything?

Yeah, do all that and you still won't get laid because you're boring/dull...

No, I'd eventually sleep with someone like this. Women tend to sleep with men like this, girls don't. There's a difference between women and girls.

You can be interesting and attractive without being a douche. Being a nice, decent person and being attractive are not mutually exclusive. It is possible to not be boring while also not bragging about yourself all the time, one must find that perfect midpoint while not being butthurt about their sex life.

This is actually a really good summary. A caveat to 10, though, is that this generally applies to all people, not just other women, and especially if you just met her. It's one thing to complain about someone with your friends you have known for a while and probably share your opinion. This is a pretty good way to come off as an asshole, even if what you are saying about the other person is 100% true.

A great personality can make you more attractive.
