“You Get All the Good-Looking Women”
Here’s the truth some people evidently cannot handle:
Men and women couple-up according to proximate levels of trading currency. It is a financial transaction just like any other. Seeking each other out, men and women will trade down if, and only if, there is a pressing need to trade down. If they don’t have to, then they don’t. -- House of Eratosthenes

By the simplest of definitions and VERY broad brushstrokes, yes, SPAM (Sex-Appeal, Power And Money) are the main variables for women doing the choosing.
During the Teens, Sex-Appeal is the strongest variable. Twenties, its a wide mix of those three mentioned variables (SPaM).
After that, and maturation starts to play a part for a distinctive percentage and it gets alot more complex. Though each of those variables do play a part as a 'resume padder' for making THE decision, I do believe that with the more mature women (and men for that matter) will count that ill defined and amorphous category known as 'Affection' as the supreme 'variable' of them all.
For me seeing a 'Rich Successful Athlete' with a 'Knockout Gorgeous Woman' I just mentally shrug at the distinctively high probability that the relationship is 'shallow'. But I could be wrong and I wish them the best whatever the case may be.
As one friend told me "If you marry a rich guy, you end up earning every penny". Likewise with the common phrase "Some guy somewhere is tired of putting up with her shit". For the cardboard cut out relationships built entirely off those stone cold hard variables (and the two above pearls of wisdom), yes, it is true.
For Real-People, Affection should be the factor that seals the deal. How do you know is someone is truly an affectionate person? Well... it takes time, I suppose. Alot more time than it takes many people to decide whether they want to marry someone or not. its a shame that people take years to build their career, and yet only spend a few weeks to decide the most important decision in their life.
But what do I know, anyway....
