I read that you live here Koga, so I'm glad you chimed in. I think you are right as well.

How about superficially friendly?
Did you grow up here Koga? Has it always been like this? Or is in in reaction to the huge amount of people that moved here in the mid to late 90's? Someone even tried to convince me that it was the early Nordic settlers that make their mark on the area and stamped it with their personalities.
Even the Asian-Am community seems like this as well.
But most Asian-Ams seem polite but unfriendly to me anyway.  :D

I'd say that the people in Seattle are polite but not really friendly.  Other than that, you're dead on.


I grew up in NorCal. As much as I make fun of Seattle sucking, I really do like it here. Mostly for the outdoorsiness of the people.

I just find it very striking how different the people here can be compared from people I have met from other parts of the country.
Friends from real big cities notice it as well. Especially people from NYC, LA, SF, or Chicago. As with anyplace there is always a broad variety, so I don't want to be misconstrued as making any broad generalizations.

I think people here come across as very introspective and passive at first. Outwardly, superficially friendly, but very difficult to know very well, and intimately. Someone told a friend of mine that it takes five years to find a steady group of friends if you come here knowing no one. Yikes
"Friendly but not warm", is a comment I hear from time to time.

I think it has to do more with health.  Human's are attracted to mates that they perceive are healthy, this is true for both sexes.  Overly skinny people are probably seen as unhealthy.  Thus, normal sized but attractive people are starting to become the new social icons. 

I've heard that as well. There is enough evidence out there that I totally buy into the whole biological determinism behind human sexual preferance.

Also that the closer a woman's hip to waist ratio is to Phi (1.61) the more that males will perceive her as being fertile and therefore sexually attractive.

36-24-36 and you end up with something like 1.5. H - W ratio. The classic hourglass.

  /\

It works for men too but women perceive it as the ratio of the shoulder to the man's waist. A reverse of the female  or \/

So a woman can be very sexy at any weight so long as she is close to 1.61.

It's from a 70's B Horror flick. The Simpsons refer to it now and again.

Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.

The antipode of the All World Hottie

The romantic in me wants the personality and intelligence.
But the jackal in me wonders about the ease of Booty effect.

I'd like to see if the traits are going to be split along gender lines, or if the genders are coming to synthesis of the best ad the worst of each.

This is to go along with the theme of the other threads regarding the methodology of attraction.

People were asking about the relative values of looks, power, money personality, etc.
People also mentioned that they would see mismatches. Hotties with Notties. The exceptons that prove the rule.

So there must be a reason why an All World Hottie is out and about with a CHUD.

What trumps what? Assuming that you are the ALL WORLD HOTTIE. Which one of the below will make you consider dating/being seen with/having biblical knowledge with a CHUD?

The CHUD has only one of the below in dramatically greater proportion to the others.

Definitions:
1. Physical Beauty - Your personal, relative, and subjective degree of physical attraction.

2. Power - Leadership, use of charisma for personal ends ,prestige, social status, acceptance, comfort, and prowess with Machavellian world skills.

3. Wealth/Ambition - Their personal wealth and high, sustained availability of such, access to money. Or their future earnings potential. (dirt poor, but in Med/Law/Business school or waiting on a scorching IPO)

4. Personality/Intelligence - A smart person can be super hot. Often the first battle for below the belt is a really deep sense of intellectual connection. Determines interest of conversation, availability of topics, ability to sustain intellectual attraction for the forseeable future.

5. Ease/Quality of Booty Access - They always say YES when you want some. When you want some, they DELIVER. Willingness to deliver satisfaction is the primary determiner and not their appearance. (We're all sexy with the lights off). They may not have been that attractive o begin with, but their sexual knowledge and skill made a lasting impression.

Sexual Attractiveness Food Chain:

Females: Power -> Wealth -> Physical Appearance

Males: Physical Appearance -> Youth -> Everything else deludes us from thinking that we only value the first two.

It's a totally bull value system and it explains why people are miserable when they choose poorly.

The truth is that we all have agendas. Men don't want to be seen with a woman that they are embarassed of physically because we are afraid that other men will judge their "masculinity" based on her appearance. Women can't be with a man that they cannot respect, or find attractive.

We use each other for our own ends.

name dropping for undergrad or law school?

although I don't know that the name of a school will rouse a guy into a semi or make a girl sopping.

Girls try this: "I' so drunk."
Guys : "Hmmm I seem to have misplace my Rolex and the keys to my Bentley. Could they be in your panties?"
Girls: "I said, 'I'm soooo drink.'"
