What do men really want in a woman?

No comments

It is said that most men fall head over heels for a gorgeous physique, hair extensions and high heels…

Although physical appearance can be the first thing men notice, when it comes to settling down ‘looks’ often come in last and count the least. For some men it can come as a surprise if they don’t recognise the woman that they’ve woken up next to.

Yes of course, there will be some men who love hair extensions. They adore seeing you when you turn your head around, and strands of your hair go all over and all that’s visible is some artificial hair trying to escape from the back of your scalp. The best part about hair extensions is when a girl feels comfortable enough to whip them off in front of the guy – that always goes down a treat.

But that is not all. Believe it or not, a gorgeous physique is besides the point. The things men like in women often have nothing to do with looks. Here are seven completely non-physical things men like in a women and I am pretty much sure that you will tick and confirm many more.  Every man loves to be with a woman who is:

  • A GOOD LISTENER

Many men appreciate a woman who is able to listen. They like to be heard and someone who shows them that they care. This involves being patient as well, you need to understand what a man meant to say and show them that you are there for him.

Ideally, a woman who has the ability to listen and really hear what is being said is one of the women many men love.

  • SPONTANEOUS

Most men like being able to “go with the flow”. Most of our male friends find this trait very appealing. You know what, you will never hear a man sing in front of a woman but they mostly love to hear women sing even if it sounds more like howling, it does not matter, they just like it. They love to see women dance around the house, they will gladly surprise a woman if they know the reaction will be positive and they love to see them being themselves (even if it involves a certain dose of silliness).

  • A GOOD COOK

It is said that the only way to get to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Well, most men would love a woman who can cook and be would be more than willing to learn to cook for them.

  • A REAL GIRL

Men love a real girl not the fake one, a girl who likes to smile, the one who does not care what others are thinking of her smile, her lips, teeth or whatever. A girl who can tell a joke, who does not use “words” like OMG, a girl who will not limit herself or have a nervous breakdown every time her foundation starts running.

  • CARING

Men will want to know whether you care for them or not but you have to be careful because repeating “I love you” until he cannot take it anymore is not a good way to let him know how you feel. A typical man will tell you that he loves you once and show you how much he loves you five times. Women should do the same and stop repeating “ I love you” rather than surprising him every once in a while, listen to his problems – show him everything you want to tell him because this quality is one of the very important things men like in women.

  • TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF

Believe it or not taking care of yourself will show your man that you will take good care of him as well. Men actually like when women spend money on all the creams and beauty products. They enjoy all the benefits of our waxing, beauty treatments and shopping.

  • NATURAL WHEN IT COUNTS

Just because we like makeup does not mean that we have to wear it all of the time. Men love a girl who is natural when it counts. But I tell you what, a guy loves it when a girl doesn’t take two hours to look perfect when, in his opinion, she is perfect no matter what. He wants a girl who is so confident in herself, who doesn’t need anything but herself.
