funny video...

Female friends...yes, it tends to make your target feels more comfortable to be with. Imagine you only hang out with male friends, chicks will usually stay away.

Compliments, yes, but not too much, or something that doesn't exist. Saying "hey, you have a nice big butt" is NOT a compliment to honger girls with no ass

jokes...yes, but don't try too hard. No racist, blonde, milf, JB, shakespeare jokes

center of attention and play with kids...I am not sure about that.

LOL @ robbing the woman behind him and say thank you

Home owner...it depends, I would say chicks dig car owners more.

YES, women are attracted to men who smell OR dressing style like their dad.
My gf/exs get turn on when I wear tie and business suit..they think I look/act like their dad

There are a lot of truths behind this video, as well as some things that are overrepresented and/or over exaggerated--just from personal experience anyways.
The key behind attraction is, (as I see it) value. Something must be worth pursuing about your SO that makes you attracted to her, and vice versa. Example, maybe she has a nice body (which is value--value is anything worth pursuing for), or maybe she has just the right personality you're looking for.

Female friends, yes definitely. This is social proof. It's the same thing for just about anybody. For example, you're looking for tickets to a Friday evening lounge event. When given a choice, you'd probably go to a big time club promoter who knows thousands of people over a newbie with a small social circle.
It's not necessary to be the center of attention, but in most situations, it does help. It might not make her directly attracted to you, but as social animals, we tend to want to associate ourselves with the alpha (i.e. the most social of the social)--it is after association that she will or will not find your qualities attractive.

Compliments work and don't work. If you're going to be kiss-ass about it, then you might as well tell her "Hi my name is Joe and I want to have sex with you by the end of the month."
Complimenting, I've found out, works best when they are unique. I told a girl once that she and her friend look like gumdrops (they were dressed in different colors that night). A weird, grotesque thing to compliment, to say the least, but it was also a "stimulating thing to say", according to her.

Giving her all your attention. When you're out with her, yes.
If she barely knows you, no. If she barely knows you, and you're treating her like the bell of the ball, then she will find you a) easy b)creepy c) both.
If it's something more intimate like a first date, then yes, you do want to give her your attention (or at least make her feel that way). Because hey, everybody's favorite topic is themselves.

Pay for a meal--not a fan of paying for everything, but I don't mind paying when the time comes.
Don't come across as cheap, but don't be kiss-ass either. That's my philosophy.

Kids: Again, this shows social proof. If you can get along with anybody, regardless of age, gender, race, and anything else that distinguishes you from that person, then you have that value as an easy-going, social person.

I think the homeowners bit has a definite underlying message to it (i.e. overrepresented).
You don't need to have a glamorous lifestyle, a high-pay job, drive an exotic car, or own a mansion to show value. Sure, it does show that you're a successful person and you're well-off in your life, but a guy that has everything is boring.
However, owning a home/car does mean that you are able to support yourself; and to most women, that's a form of value.
It also shows ambition and passion imo, but that's going way too much into the details.

I don't know about this one personally, but I've come across a news article/research about this too.

meeting of minds is important too...you don't want to go out with someone who only talks about her reglion or experience when you are not interested in that.

Ok, well this is a girl's take:

Female friends - not always going to work in your favour. Girls are jealous of other girls, it's just a fact.

Compliments - yes, but don't overdo it. Overdoing it screams "I'm desperate and horny"

Jokes - not until you know what her sense of humor's like. Otherwise you risk crossing too many lines that you didn't even know were there.

Center of attention - we like to know you're focused on us. We can tell if you're faking it. Well okay maybe not all of us.

Kids - Not all women want kids. Some might get extremely freaked out if you start talking about how much you loooooooooooooove kids.

Getting the bill - IMHO the person doing the asking should be the one to pick up the bill. If she decides to chip in, it's up to you if you want to let her.

Can't comment on the dad thing, but if they're talking about strong, positive male figures in a woman's life, it's likely they'll look for similar qualities.

Home owner - depends. Yes, it'd be nice if they had a place of their own, but if it's disgusting, then um. Yeah, I'm not a maid.

Working out/muscles/blah - Overly muscled guys are not attractive. That is all.

Greebo i t-boned some guy and killed their baby, it was funny
silvia i have a couple asian guy friends that do very well with the ladies. but guess what, they go to the gym, they dont have long hair, they dont wear orange pants, and they dont play counterstrike. its not the ethnicity that the girls dont like, its the style and personality.
450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
Iceman-19 If your gf cooks and cleans, good, tell the guy to take a fucking hike. If she doesnt, fuck, that joker can have her. Lifes too short to cook your own meals and do your own laundry, thats what women are for!
