Ladies, have you ever wondered WHAT ATTRACTS A MAN? Well, fret not, let me give you my take on it. These rules which I prefer to call as guidelines may not apply to all guys, (whichever theory about human behavior does?) but it should apply to most guys, if most guys are like my friends and I. Worse come to worse, at least these are what we desire in women, so if any of you have the slightest interest in me or my friends, well, congratutions! This is the holy grail!


Your mum is right after all, PLAY HARD TO GET! If you had read Tom Sawyer instead of the girly books like Nancy Drews when you were young, you would have gain a better understanding of boys. Remember, Boys will always be Boys! Men are boys in disguise!

Tom Sawyer, “He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it--namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain.”

Even in organizational behavior, we learn that the more difficult goals energize us because we have to work harder to attain them. As our very own Single Picky Girl Janice Wong said, “Human nature is perverse. When someone is excessively nice to us, we start taking things for granted, instead of appreciating them even more.”

Of course, terms and conditions (to be written later and DEFINITELY NOT IN SMALL PRINT) apply, as I've said earlier, this is only a guideline, assuming ceteris paribus, this should work. But as we all know by now, reality and people are often more complicated then we can ever comprehend which is illustrated so beautifully by Mark Hadden, in the
"Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time".

"This is how you work out what prime numbers are. First you write down all the positive whole numbers in the world. Then you take away all the numbers that are multiples of 2. Then you take away all the numbers that are multiples of 3. Then you take away all the numbers that are multiples of 4 and 5 and 6 and 7 and so on. The numbers that are left are the prime numbers.

The rule for working out prime numbers is really simple but no one has ever worked out a simple formula for telling you whether a very big number is a prime number or what the next one will be….

Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them."
