Quit the chatting up aspect because it is so obvious and off putting and will never make a woman feel special (more like the 32nd person you've spoken to that evening). I think eye contact (without over staring) is really important and really showing interest in what a woman is saying. The art of conversation - not just chatting someone up. Confidence in a man (without him being overly assertive or aggressive) is really attractive - him being self assured. However the single most attractive thing to me (its only my opinion) is manners - proper manners!! I bore my friends rigid with this but it is so important. It says "I care, I'm sexy, I know how to treat a woman, I'm kind, I'm confident, I show respect" all wrapped into one delicious parcel. It wouldn't matter how well dressed or good looking or 'chatty' a guy was if he had no manners he could just take a walk.

Frank B Kermit agony auntYou are only making women feel comfortable with you, and you are not making them feel attraction for you. THey see you as a friend, and not a lover, because you bring out the "mothering" instinct in women. They only way to get a girl that already sees you as just a friend is to put some distence between the two of you, learn to address women's emotional needs, and THEN let her re-enter your life once you have significantly changed so that she has to re-categorize you all over again. Only in that window of opportunity can you turn this around, unless she already likes you which is unlikely.
