Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're very likely mostly talking about culture there, but it's impossible to disentangle.

If you want to say that in the culture you operate in that certain traits generally denote a high value mate, then fine. Don't go ascribing them to nature, and don't overgeneralise: you can't tell the difference. It's just-so stories.

Would you really get excited with a guy with no dominance trait?

I might, in theory: would depend on the guy wouldn't it?

Humans are complicated little apes with a whole pile of social and sexual strategies available to them, and the choice of which ones are used depend both on nature and nurture. We tend to think that the ones that we're used to are the natural, proper ones.

Frankly, I think the culture we operate in is so utterly fucked up about sexuality that there's very little sense of it to be made: did you know that there exist quite a lot of people who define themselves by which bits they (would) like to rub on which other bits? It's a very strange basis for self-identification.

Having some basis of comparison, I have to say that Western feminism adds to fuck up of sexual strategies massively.

It is yet another layer of "so-so" story, adding to confusion and statistics to failed delusions. Would be pretty good for population control, I might guess.

No, that's not an answer. In what way is it a just-so story?

Rather unkindly, feminism offer suggestions (for both sexes) in unhelpful directions, without empirical or real psychological basis. So nice guys do not know what women actually want - nor women themselves (in a predictive sense). That's a social game we play - not everyone has to grasp everything.
