What is it that men desire in a woman? If a man could describe his perfect woman, what would she be like?
These are just two of the questions women have been looking for answers to for generations, and to be brutally honest, they are questions that don’t have an actual answer. You see, despite what some “experts” tell you, there isn’t one type of woman all men go for.
Some men like smaller women, some like the curvy. Some men like dominant women, other men like quiet wallflowers. So if all men want something different in a woman, how are YOU supposed to know how to attract men?
Well, while men all look for different things physically, and even emotionally in a woman, there are some qualities and behaviors, ALL men desire in a long-term partner. I’ll share them with you now!
1. All Men Want To Feel Needed
It’s great you’re an independent woman, and it’s amazing you can do your own DIY. I love the whole equality thing, and most guys love a strong woman, BUT, men also have a deep, inbuilt need to be needed by you.
Men want to protect and provide for you. It’s not a sexist issue. It’s in our genes and it dates back to cave man days. Let your man do the odd job around the house, let him help you move some rubbish from your backyard, and let him make some of the plans, and he’ll keep coming back for more.
Men will only date women who make them feel needed at least some of the time.
2. Understand When He Needs Space
Some women have a terrible habit of freaking out when a guy says he wants some space to see his friends or whatever. I get emails every week from women asking things like, “My man said he wanted to stay around his friend’s house because they were playing poker. He never normally does anything like that. Do you think he’s cheating on me?”
No, I don’t think he’s cheating on you. I think he doesn’t get out and see his friends enough and now he wants to spend a little time with them. Sure, if he disappears for days on end and doesn’t return your calls, you have a right to question him, but don’t panic just because he wants to see his friends.
All of us need space, the same way as you need time to see your friends for a girlie night now and then. That way, when you reconnect as a couple you can keep the spark and excitement there without smothering each other.
3. We Don’t Want To Date Our Mothers
The majority of men love their Moms but that doesn’t mean we want to date her. Yes, we love that you do our washing, and it’s amazing you cook for us too (not that we expect you too) but that doesn’t give you permission to bust our balls.
If we leave the toilet seat up one too many times, we don’t mind you telling us, “Honey, you know I adore you, but I really hate getting a wet butt on the toilet!”
It’s jokey and we still get the message. Yelling at us, “How many times have I told you to leave the toilet seat down?” is just going to remind us of being 6 years old, and no guy wants to be reminded of that. Remember, we may act like big kids sometimes, but we don’t want to go back to feeling like our Mom is scalding us for every little thing we do.
4. We Love Your Passion
All men love passion in a woman. I’m not just talking about physical passion either. Men love women who are passionate about their work, their lifestyle, and their relationships. We like to see you’re alive and animated.
We want you to excite and inspire us in the same way we should excite and inspire you. We want to feel your energy. We want to feel your passion. And we want to feel your drive. It pushes us on to strive for more.
Those are just 4 qualities that all men desire in a woman, but remember, every man has a different idea of what makes “the perfect woman.”
In fact, in the video below, you’ll see myself and some friends showing you just how different men are, when we discuss what WE personally look for in a woman. It’s extremely eye opening, so get comfortable and take a peek inside the mind of man!
