Nothing to comment about your experiences with chicks, don't know about those but I can tell you that persona and how you carry/present yourself matters so much more then looks, especially to beautiful women instead of girls. Beautiful women/girls get attention yes, but it is usually more scared kind of attention or flattery then genuine contact. Young girls might be running after looks and pretty much every human being likes good looks, the thing is that they don't prioritize good looks over everything else because they realize they'll rather find someone who brings good energy and possibilities to their life then someone who weighs them down. Usually this comes later on then early on, there is no formula for growing up, it's different for all of us.
Obviously, they also want someone in charge of his own life. Egoistic is different tho, not everyone can tell those apart.
Confidence in what ever you do matters a lot. :P If you're confident without being smug and not just acting confident but feeling it as well. I think you should have no issues finding a good-looking chick, especially if you got some wealth on-top. Not like they're nowadays a dime in a dozen..
