What is a woman really looking for in a man? What qualities does a woman truly want in a partner? Is it his stunning good looks or his healthy bank account? For some maybe, but most women are looking for something a little deeper than that. I have found in my work with clients that some women are not even sure what they truly want from a man. No wonder men are confused and both sexes are frustrated. We can’t figure out what to do to make each other happy, and we don’t understand what we are doing wrong. Men want to be successful in their relationships with women whether they are single, dating or married.
So what do women secretly want? The details might be different, but overall most women are looking for a few basic traits in a quality guy. It is more about the whole package. Women fall in love and stay in love with a man’s personality and how he treats her.
She wants to feel like you will protect her, be her hero. She wants to know that you will be by her side always to support her. This doesn’t mean you have to physically protect her, although she wants to know you would try if the need arose. It doesn’t mean you have to financially provide for her. She may not need you to do either. Many women feel completely confident in taking care of themselves. She does need to feel like she can count on you to always be by her side. She wants to know she can depend on you no matter what comes up.
Women are by nature communicators. They love to share and feel emotionally connected in this way. They also solve problems by talking. They need to feel heard and understood in relationships. She can feel insecure at times about your love, so remember to tell her how you feel and do it often! Telling her how you feel is important, but it is equally important that you also give her your undivided attention. Show concern for what is going on in her life. She will feel bonded to you when you take an interest in her thoughts, concerns, and what is important to her.
She wants to know that you only have eyes for her. This does not mean she expects you to never look at another woman, but she needs to know that you only want to be with her. Let her know that you think she is beautiful and that you are proud of her. She needs to know that you cherish her and would chose her again if you had the choice. Tell her that she is the best thing that has ever happened to you. When she feels loved and cherished, she will feel secure in the relationship.
