5 Things Every Woman Looks for in a Man
People love to talk about how hard it is to know what a woman is thinking, what a woman looks for in a man, or even just to figure out what she means when she says something. At the end of the day, it really doesn’t have to be all that complicated. Most, if not every woman, is looking for a handful of things in a partner – whether that partner is a man or a woman. In this post, we’re talking about the five things that every woman looks for. So, if you’ve ever wondered “Why aren’t women into me?” or “What do women really want?” you might find this one helpful.
Every woman wants to know that her partner has something going on upstairs. This is not to say that you have to be a rocket science or mathematical genius, but she wants to know that she can rely on you to exercise intelligent thinking on your own accord. Now, there’s a fine line between showing off your smarts and straight up showing off – and the latter can result in the exact opposite effect than you hope. Demonstrate your intelligence in an interesting, meaningful way. Don’t sit and brag all date long about all the awards you’ve won and how all your friends think you’re a genius. That one never flies, and can wind up making you seem insecure for feeling as though you have to drive it home that hard to begin with.
All women want their partner to be kind, compassionate and respectful. With that being said, there are a lot of women out there who do love a “bad boy” or “tough guy”. But that doesn’t mean they don’t want their partner to have at least a somewhat sensitive side. Having the ability to empathize with her, connect with her on an emotional level and exercise kindness towards her and others is a valuable trait. Nobody wants to feel as though they’re dating someone who’s mean, aggressive and unsympathetic so feel free to play up your sensitive side (but don’t overdo it) on your next date.
3. Ability to Listen
Everyone, including the lady in your life, wants to be heard and wants her partner to listen when she speaks. It can be an incredibly discouraging experience to feel as though your partner is the only one whose opinion ever matters, especially when she’s having a bad day or needs to talk about an important subject. Show her that you care by truly listening; asking questions that continue the conversation instead of challenging her every sentence and be sure to remember what she’s told you. If she’s taken the time to explain something to you, chances are that it’s important to her and should also be important to you as her partner.
4. Sense of Humour
When you ask a woman about what she looks for in a partner, it’s a rare occasion that you don’t hear “sense of humour” listed in the top five traits. Having the ability to make her laugh and lighten the mood when it needs to be lightened is imperative in any relationship, whether it is friendly or romantic. You don’t have to have the exact same sense of humour as her. In fact, having slightly different world views and senses of humour can make for incredible chemistry. But, you should have an understanding of what she does and doesn’t find funny and be able to make her laugh every once in a while. And when she busts out a hilarious joke, you should be able to see the humour in it and laugh along with her. After all, it shouldn’t be one-sided.
Last but not least, every woman wants to see that their partner is ambitious and driven… at least to a certain extent. Some women seek more ambitious men, such as intensely successful entrepreneurs. Other women seek men that are willing to go the extra mile, at home and at the office. Other women want partners who follow their dreams and are committed to a hobby or past time. Don’t feel pressured to play up your accomplishments or achievements, but subtly mentioning a goal you’re working towards never hurts. 😉
