6 Things Women Really Want in a Man

While each woman is going to have some variations in what she is looking for, most have the same main qualities they want in a partner. These qualities are indicative of the possibility of a lifelong partner, otherwise known as husband material. With at least a few of these attributes under his belt, the man you have is well on his way to being exactly what you need.

Humor

A guy who can make you laugh is going to keep your interest a lot longer than one who can’t. Most women want someone with a healthy sense of humor, someone who can make almost any situation funny. The class clown type of guy is not what we’re talking about though. The guy should make you laugh, but shouldn’t be obnoxious about it or try too hard to make it happen.

Honesty

No one likes being lied to. Finding a partner who is truly honest about his wants and needs makes the relationship all the better. You can feel safe knowing you have a man who will tell you the truth no matter what, and who will not lie to get out of trouble.

Faithfulness

Just because he’s honest and funny doesn’t mean he’ll be faithful. Women want a guy who can let others know he’s taken, and be committed to the relationship he’s already in. Faithfulness is a very attractive quality for women to see in their partners.

Reliability

Someone who is reliable is someone you know you can count on. You know he will always show up he says he's going to, and be there for you whenever needed. Reliability and trustworthiness go hand in hand.

Supportiveness

Not all men support their girl’s dreams. Some want to be the breadwinners while their partners stay home. If you’re a woman with a passion you want to pursue, you need to find a man who offers his support. He should support your goals and desires in life and understand that you need to make a life for yourself whether he’s in it or not.

Attractiveness

Let’s face it, we aren’t going to stay with someone who we don’t find at least somewhat attractive. When there is no attraction whatsoever, the relationship will never work. You at least have to have a small attraction to a man if you want the relationship to go anywhere. Of course, attractiveness is subjective. While he may look fine to you, he might not be the right type for someone else. It’s just a matter of preference.

If he doesn’t meet these basic qualities, run the other way.

In the course of a half century, I have discovered only three things needed for a lasting relationship.
First, you must be friends first. Passion is like the tide, coming and going; but friendship is constant.
Second, you must share a sense of humor. You don't have to make each other laugh, but you have to laugh at the same things. (This makes it more likely that you'll cry at the same things, too.)
Third, there must be something integral in each of you that the other admires. Beauty is not integral, but surface. (I have always been impressed with my husband's work ethic. He always gives his all, even when he'd rather not.)
With these three points covered, your relationship can weather any storm!

This is one of the most laughable and absurd brainwashing articles I think I've ever read. It's like it's written for 3rd graders, with the most patronising tone imaginable. Particularly funny is when the author says that the man needs to display "faithfulness" and "be committed to the relationship he’s already in, while going on to tell the woman in the "Supportiveness" heading that the guy needs to "understand that you need to make a life for yourself whether he's in it or not." LOL! Nothing like a few huge and blatant double standards to start a relationship off right, eh? A mature relationship is about give-and-take both ways, not just down the one-way street the feminists believe they're "entitled" to. You need to be willing to meet at least halfway on everything, or you're just living in a selfish fantasy world and deserve to be alone. That's called growing up!
