Men talk a lot about expectations or rather not having any but the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of things a man wants in a girlfriend. It’s human to look for and want certain traits in one’s partner. This post will reveal the attributes men look for in women.
Our idea of the perfect person changes with what we want from life in general. So, if we are looking for casual sex, the only prerequisite would be a hot body. However, when looking for a more steady relationship, our expectations increase by the hour. So, I have made a list of the different qualities men want in a girlfriend and briefly summarized them under the following points:
She has to be attractive:
A girl has to be attractive for a guy to like her enough. By attractive women, I am referring to women who have an appealing figure and are good to look at. The reality of life is that physical attributes trigger off the initial responses to people so if someone is very beautiful on the inside but fails to show it on the outside, she will find it difficult to win the rat race.
A combination of cute and sexy:
The strange thing about men is that they always want the best of both worlds. They look for a girl who is sexy but is also adorable enough to be taken home. Rare as this combination might be, guys look for this quality in a girlfriend.
She should be caring and loving:
A guy wants his girlfriend to love him like a lover but he also wants her to take care of him like a mother. As I said earlier, they always want the best of both worlds.
She should have her own life:
A man appreciates an independent woman because independence shows control and power. Even though he would want to win all the power struggles, he looks for a woman who is her own boss, earns her own money and is thus, powerful in her own way.
She should be loyal and honest:
Infidelity isn’t appreciated by anyone, be it a man or a woman. We all expect faithfulness and transparency from someone we love. In all honesty, this is a very practical quality a man looks for in a girlfriend.
A source of strength and support:
Every man wants his girlfriend to stand by him in times of difficulty and to support him when he’s unsure of himself. Since a relationship involves two people, unless both of them can support and stand by each other during times of need, stability in a relationship becomes difficult.
She has to be a little submissive:
Men are very egoistic by nature so they look for women who are a bit submissive. It’s like the yin and yang of chinese feng shui. Every guy wants a woman who has her ego but is intelligent enough to not show it at every step. Being submissive isn’t a shortcoming because submissive people are always winners in the long run.
Wanting sex as much as him:
This one’s a no brain-er. If you can ever get a guy to strip down his ego and be completely honest with you, he will tell you how important sex is in his life. Even though they all think on the same lines, different guys prioritize sex on different levels. Nevertheless, it holds importance in their life and so does a partner who is sexually compatible with them.
What is a relationship without understanding? Such relationships aren’t even stable which is why the ability to understand his situation is a must for a prospective girlfriend. Every guy wants his girlfriend to understand him as much as he understands her which actually forms the base of a strong relationship.
She should be a charmer:
Who doesn’t want some charm in his woman? Whether you talk about the charm to impress a guy, his friends or his family, it is a prerequisite. Charming women have a sexual appeal that transcends the border of appearance so if you really want to know what a guy wants from his girlfriend, it’s endless charm to captivate him!
She should give him space:
Every relationship ends because of excessive space or the lack of it. Therefore, it is very important to know the exact amount of space that two people need in a relationship. This varies from couple to couple but every guy expects his girlfriend to understand his need for some space in a relationship and respect it as well.
She has to be witty:
Very few women actually have a sense of humor guys can associate with. A sense of humor is something every guy looks for but very few find. Studies have shown that some guys rate a good sense of humor as one of the most desirable qualities in a woman.
She has to be intelligent:
Intelligence is something that is valued by every man. No guy would want to be with someone who isn’t bright enough to understand him. Intelligence helps people to connect and communicate which is the very base of a relationship.
She should be able to stand up for herself:
Against codes of the society which view women as commodities who constantly require protection, guys today look for women who have a mind of their own and aren’t afraid to speak for themselves. The ability to fight for her own cause is something a guy looks for in his girlfriend. That doesn’t mean that he won’t fight for her. On the contrary, it shows her self-confidence.
She must appreciate his presence in her life:
Every guy wants to be appreciated and praised for his qualities especially by his girlfriend. A guy always looks for a lot of importance from the woman he loves and nothing can please him more than the knowledge that his girlfriend appreciates his presence in her life.
