Out of all the mysteries men face with the opposite gender, the biggest one is discovering what really goes on inside women’s minds.
For centuries, men have desperately tried to unlock the mysteries of the opposite gender. Despite their greatest effort to reveal the secretive nature of women through books, and poems, songs, and essays, it seems that men haven’t made much progress in understanding what women really look for in a man.
The thing is, it’s already familiar that women value loyalty, kindness, and honesty, but I’m sure that’s not all.
So, after a small research and several conversations with the women in my life, I came up with this list.
Guys, there’s no need to thank me. Just buckle up and enjoy the ride. Oh, and while you’re up there, see how you stack up!
Is there a person on earth who doesn’t value faithfulness? If you ask me, it’s the most important trait women look for in a man. Being loyal and trustworthy is the only way to maintain the flame in your relationship.
It may sound like a cliché, but women are incredibly drawn to a man who can commit. So, it is only natural to fall in love with a man they can completely rely on. With both their body and soul.
3. MORAL INTEGRITY
Oh, righteousness. Nobility. Truthfulness. I’d never settle until I find these traits in a man. Women may not want to know whether they’ve gained weight, but they sure as hell want a man who has the guts to be honest at all cost. They appreciate it, believe me. It’s not a trap.
Real, grown-ass, mature women don’t fall for the fuck-boy type. Their turn-ons include generosity and unconditional kindness towards every living being. The character of a man can be easily judged by the way he treats people who can’t do anything about him.
5. SENSE OF HUMOR
A good sense of humor is everything. It’s the ultimate mark of a man’s intelligence and emotional maturity. Plus, you know what they say. If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything. Ladies, do you agree?
Women have a soft spot for children. So, you can bet that sooner or later, they’d love to reveal that part of you. Being a good dad, possessing a parental ability or simply having the potential to become one is very attractive to women.
Compassion. Tenderness. Mutual understanding. Empathic soul. These are traits we all look for in a potential partner. The ability to connect with another person’s emotions and dive into their world of wonders is a truly rare and remarkable gift.
All women want an ambitious, interesting and intelligent man. We all need a partner with whom we could engage in never-ending, stimulating conversations about everything that truly matters in life.
A man who believes in his own actions and feels secure in his own skin radiates with assertiveness and boldness. A man who handles every life situation head-on is a man who shows a great deal of bravery.
10. SENSE OF STYLE
Women may value intelligence, but at the end of the day they also care about your appearance. A man who bothers to dress well, shows that he knows how to take care of himself.
11. PHYSICAL ATTRACTION
The law of attraction says that it is all about symmetry. Woman love broad chins, they love high cheekbones, muscular shoulders, thick eyebrows and big eyes. Oh, and let’s not forget my personal favorite. Nothing screams more of testosterone than beards.
It’s funny, but a lot of women I know said that they don’t like it when they’re taller than the man. Height is not something they necessarily look for in a man, but they’d feel more comfortable if they’re not 2 inches taller than their partner.
13. BEING A GOOD LISTENER
I don’t know how many times I’ve said this, but the ability to listen is among the top 5 things I look for in a potential partner. All women want a partner who would make time to sit down and listen to them. “I’m here, you can tell me everything” is all we need to hear.
An ambitious man who earns his own money and chases his own dreams just contributes to his attractiveness. Women want a talented man, a person with ambitions, goals, visions. Not a couch potato who’d rather suckle on their tit instead of working for his goals.
Women love passionate men. Men who are eager to learn more, fight for what they deserve, work for the things they love, pursue their ambitions. It’s proof that they care about anything else beyond themselves.
16. BEING GOOD IN BED
This one is a given. We all want a person who’d know which button to push to make our toes curl. Trust me, it’s not just about the orgasms. A man needs to know how to handle you and your body.
The ability to stay true to yourself and to others. The ultimate virtue all women cherish in men. Women don’t need a man who’d find it easier and more convenient to lie than to reveal the truth.
