I don't think that's true. The women that I know tend to be more pragmatic and look for men who are solid - you know dependable, reliable, great providers, rational, and perhaps romantic and witty. Maybe its just a culture thing.
Anyhow read the article:
I roll my eyes in disbelief and disgust at this one:
"Women can't seem to resist a guy who doesn't appear interested in them or who needs saving. He has long used the method of failing to return phone calls and a tortured mystery man routine to rope in likely lasses -- and says it works nine times out of 10. Maybe the urge to mother a lost sheep is innate in women? And if he combines the right amount of restrained tenderness and vulnerability with the spice of reluctance, he has a recipe for total control. Andrea"
