To women, men come off as complicated and mysterious. Men and women can never understand each other up to 100%. So, when it comes to dating a man how do you what he’s looking in you? And more importantly, how can women know what men really want in a relationship?
Now, of course, every man is different and every person his own set of preference, expectations, and priorities. Some will prefer blondes, others have a long history of dating brunettes, some men prefer curvy over petite others prefer petite women, and some are fine with both body types.
Half of the men will be very attracted to women who are loud, chirpy and make the perfect social butterflies while other men will gravitate towards quieter and even shier women. There’s always that man who will choose a woman who is decisive and headstrong with a leader personality, but then there are men who want a woman who will take a while in decision-making processes and is a little more laid back in the department of impulsiveness.
The list of men’s preferences could go on and on. It’s all a matter of personal likes, choices, and favorites. But there’s no denying that generally, there is something that every single man is looking for in the opposite gender.
Your social media and the tv may be plastered with all kinds of posts, advertisements, scenes and entire movies that will make you believe all men ever really give a sh*t about how perky your boobs are and how big your ass is.
This is to all the ladies; don’t fall for it. It’s an unrealistic representation of what men desire to have in a woman, and the truth is, men, look for way more than that. There are things that men are genuinely attracted to, the things they genuinely respect and admire in a woman who they want to be in a relationship with.
If you’re a girl who hasn’t had the best of experiences with men lately, you may be wondering how to make it better. You may be thinking of what to do to just nail t the next time you’re on a date with a man you’re only getting to know and want to impress. Here’s what men are really looking for in the opposite sex:
1. A woman who appreciates them
Men are attracted to women who understand them like none other. They really, really value a woman who appreciates them for who they are and what they do, who gives them real, not made up compliments who thanks them for the real things and not for superficial things like the car they own, their paycheck, or the watch they wear.
The like being appreciated for their manners and their civility, for their hard work, and so much more. Men are as starved for appreciation as women, but because they like to be quiet and macho about it, they never say it out loud.
They’re looking for someone who loves and understands them. Women, try and appreciate your man for the things he’s getting right in life. Men want women to feel proud of them.
2. A woman who respects them
Great women respect themselves more than anyone else and automatically respect the special man of their lives. They make sure that the man who is with them feels regarded in every manner because it isn’t just about appreciation. Man harbor a massive need to be deeply respected. They want to taken seriously and paid attention to.
3. A woman who isn’t controlling
Most men will be happy to give and to provide for. Men will take their time and do things their way, but if they’re given the needed space and time to get things right, they will do it willingly.
But, bossing a man around is one thing that will make them resentful towards you. No one likes to be told what to do at every step of the way. Being controlling and bossing is toxic for a man; it makes him feel like he’s incapable of doing the things he’s supposed to do. It will also make him feel suffocated; he will end up giving up on the idea of a relationship with you.
This doesn’t mean you should let him whatever he wants all the time.
A man should listen to you when you voice your opinions and concerns. There’s a fine line between being bossy and merely speaking up. Just make sure you’re not crossing that line.
4. Who helps him be his best self
Men will know it when they are around women who make them feel great about themselves. A woman who treats them in ways that make will make a man’s self-confidence and self-esteem shoot up and improve is what men look for in the opposite sex.
