We all want different things when it comes to looking for a partner. Some things work for some people and other things work for others. Some men will tell you that the way to his heart is through his stomach and with a good meal. Some will tell you that it’s by being kind to his mother, his parents, or his family and friends. Everyone has a different thing that really drives them when it comes to what they really want their partner to be like. Having said that, there are a few things that I truly believe universally, every man wants in his woman.
Here Are a List of 5 Things That Every Man Wants in His Woman
1. He Wants Her to Be Emotionally Supportive
A man wants a woman who’s emotionally supportive and who isn’t just there at the finish line, but sticks around through the ups and downs, and doesn’t just desire the reward at the end of the day. A man wants a woman who will be his rock, his shoulder to lean on, and for her to nurture him, uplift him, and inspire him to be the best version of himself. Someone who will motivate him to push forward in life and towards his goals. A man wants a woman who is the type who will want what’s best for him, acting selflessly at times, putting his needs and wants above her own—and all out of love for him.
2. He Wants Her to Be Honest and Genuine
Relationships involve give-and-take, but they also involve someone who you know you can count on and who you can trust with everything and anything. You need to know that you can fully trust your partner, so that you can let down your guard and be with them wholeheartedly, and without having to bite your tongue when you speak all of the time or walk on eggshells, being afraid to tell them the truth about important matters.
As I’ve written before, trust and loyalty go hand in hand and it’s a two-way street when it comes to being open and honest. Both a man and a woman need to be trustworthy, honest, trusting of their partner, as well as open as far as communication goes. Men will also appreciate the type of woman who won’t jump to conclusions or make assumptions, and when in doubt, who will give him the benefit of the doubt, rather than thinking the worst of him. That is of course if he doesn’t have a track record of letting her down in the past.
Just like anyone else who might be naïve at times, and perhaps vulnerable to the love drug, a man might put his woman on such a high pedestal that he doesn’t see that he’s being manipulated or that his woman isn’t truly genuine or with him for the right reasons. And as unfortunate as it is for me to have to mention such a thing, being that it’s so untasteful and unkind that many women act in such a way, when a woman is the opposite and is truly authentic and genuine, he views her in the most beautiful light and truly appreciates her love and presence in his life.
When a woman is truly genuine and with a man for the right reasons, he will not only naturally feel it the longer that they’re together and the more that they know each other on a deeper level, but it will be the key to what drives and inspires him to be better in life. They say that a good woman at home or as a partner in life creates a successful man at work. There’s a lot of truth to that statement, because when a woman is honest and pure about her intentions with a man, and she truly acts decent, selfless, kind, nurturing, and as a beautiful backbone and pillar of strength to him when he needs it, a man will thrive, he will be successful, he will be healthier, and feel motivated and inspired. But more than anything, he will feel loved and happy.
3. He Wants Her to Respect Him, View Him as Powerful, and as the Very Best
A man wants to feel respected, but not only from the world around him, he wants to feel that his woman respects him and thinks of him in the highest manner. A man wants his woman to view him as strong, powerful, respectable, and worthy. He wants his woman to respect him when it comes to him sharing his feelings, his opinions, his boundaries, and all matters of the heart, as well as things that are important to him. A man who has a woman who views him in such a way where she truly respects and honours him, this man will be at mercy to her, he will thrive in joy, and it truly shows on her end a great deal of appreciation and love for him.
In the same manner that a man wants to feel respected by his woman, when he feels that his woman doesn’t respect him, it can take a huge toll on their relationship and he might even wind up feeling inadequate, and as a disappointment and failure to her, and possibly even in life.
4. He Wants Her to Be Loving, Warm, and Affectionate
Men can’t stand it when a woman is cold. And coldness comes in many forms from how she acts inside and outside of the bedroom. She may be cold to his friends and family which he won’t like, cold towards other people in general or in business, or cold when it comes to affection and intimacy. Most men will tell you hands down that they want a woman who is nurturing, warm-hearted, and even family oriented. All of these beautiful qualities usually align with the type of woman who is also warm and affectionate.
A man wants a woman with a beautiful soul, whose heart will be pure as gold, solid and stable. A man doesn’t want a wishy-washy woman intimately or in any other way. He wants a stable situation just as many woman desire. But when it comes to affection and intimacy, a man wants to know that his woman is attracted to him physically as well as in other areas. Most men crave the type of woman who will rush to the door to greet him, or stand up and wrap her arms around him when he arrives at home after work, or if she works outside of the home, then still, to wrap her arms around him just the same, kiss him all over his face, and smile with every grain of love she has for him, letting it beam through her eyes and into his heart.
5. He Wants Her to Be Happy with Herself and in Life
A good man will always want his woman to feel confident, secure, and good about herself in every way. And notice that I said, “a good man” and not merely a man. Not every man and not every woman will care, but a good man and a good woman will definitely care about their partner feeling good about themselves. A man wants a woman who will know how to talk, interact with others, socialize, and carry on a conversation. Confidence will play a big role in these areas, as well as many others such as how comfortable she is naked and in her own skin, as well as in different clothing. All in all, he will admire a woman who sports a confident smile while keeping her chin up, over a girl who hates the way she looks and criticizes herself all of the time.
Men love it when a woman has a good head on her shoulders and knows when to take things seriously. But also, a man will appreciate a woman who knows how to have a good time. A woman who will let her hair down, let go, be free, and live in the moment. Most men won’t like it when a woman is too stuck up or so concerned with her appearance or other factors that she won’t have a good time, smile, and laugh a little. Most men will cherish an easy going type of woman who is predominantly a happy and optimistic person.
And no one likes a complainer. When a woman complains a lot, it means she’s unsatisfied and unhappy. A man wants to know he’s pleasing his woman in every way and that she’s happy in general, but also, with him. Many men feel to blame when their woman is sad or upset about something and they try to fix the issues. But the problem with that is, men or anyone for that matter aren’t always to blame and aren’t supposed to be someone’s Mr. or Mrs. Fix-It. We’re not supposed to be saviours, we’re supposed to be partners, best friends, lovers, and pillars of strength fo one another when in need—but never someone’s emotional or physical punching bag, to be blamed for their misery. Besides, we usually create our own misery. We need to be whole and work through our issues, rather than blame others for why we’re upset or miserable. And especially when someone acts upset more often than not.
