Finding an ideal soul mate is not easy, but once a woman does find him, she feels like she is the happiest person on earth.
When starting a relationship with a lover, she will naturally consider aspects in his character which she likes.
Besides aesthetic aspects, many women place a lot of importance on intrinsic qualities, such as one’s character and special qualities.
Let us discuss some of the most common qualities women look for in men.
1. A Man who is willing to Communicate
All women place importance on the way/s their men communicate. After all, no relationship can survive without proper communication.
Some men tend to be rather quiet, and as a result they do not speak unless there is something that really needs to be addressed.
This is one of the things that women simply cannot stand.
Having a man who is willing to communicate, and eager to talk with her is very important.
Most women are rather talkative, and feel the need to express their feelings and experiences with someone who wants to hear them and understand them.
If a man simply nods, or appears to be listening, but does not respond back, it is highly irritating.
2. A Man who is willing to Understand
Having a man that besides listening to what a woman has to say also shows that he understands his woman, is very important for a woman.
You need to be emphatic and understanding.
This is one of the ways in which you will show her how much you care for her.
If she is down, or sad about something, she will expect you to be her shoulder to cry on.
If she is happy about something, she will want you to share that happiness with her so as to make the moment even more special.
3. A Romantic Man
Most men are rather down to earth, and avoid romanticism.
However, this often upsets women, who generally like to be fussed over and given romantic surprises.
Therefore, it is a good idea for a man to try to be at least a bit romantic.
A little gift or a short note could work wonders on a woman.
It is absolutely a must for a man to do his best to remember special dates, such as his girlfriend’s birthday or their anniversary.
Forgetting about important things is bound to affect a woman really negatively, and often lead to a huge argument because she would feel hurt. And if you do get into an argument for not being romantic, do not go asking other people as to “Why my girlfriend dumped me?”
Therefore romanticism is one of the most important qualities a man should have to please a woman.
4. Sense of Humor
It is nice for a woman to have a boyfriend with a good sense of humor.
This does not mean that you have to come up with jokes and pranks all the time as that will make you appear silly.
But, if you are willing to drive her blues away and to do your best to make her smile, then that is a really good quality which most women will appreciate.
5. A Protective Man
Most women place a lot of importance on their natural need to feel protected.
Therefore, a man should be like a prince charming, always willing to protect his woman, and offer her a sense of assurance.
6. An Honest and Loyal Man
Honesty and loyalty go hand in hand.
No relationship can survive if there is no honesty and loyalty.
These help the partners to build a sense of trust and stability, and this makes the relationship healthier.
A man should show that he is willing to make things work, and so he should be open with his woman, and willing to be committed to her.
7. An Intelligent Man
Often women prefer to have an intelligent man as their partner.
A man who is smart and who shoulders his responsibility is bound to attract a woman much more than a man who is careless.
8. A Good-mannered and Hygienic Man
Women care about a man’s inner qualities, but also place importance on his demeanor and the way he looks.
This is not simply about his good looks, but essentially, about the need to be clean, smart, fit and well mannered.
9. A Man who shows Respect
Another important quality a man should have is the need to show respect to his girlfriend.
If she is not ready for something, or feels uneasy, then you should be willing to understand her, give her some time and help her out.
It is important to be aware that it is practically impossible to be a perfect man.
We all have our faults, and so it is best to bear in mind that you are bound to have some characteristics which may not charm her.
However, all in all, you should never give up as there is bound to be a Prince Charming in you, who can make her feel like a princess and who has more positive than negative attributes.
I hope you now have the answer to “What a woman wants in a man?” So next time someone asks you this question, do not look lost.
