What women want and need from a man (part2)

The knight in shining armor

A woman gets interest in a man when he shows the right character and likes her. When a man shows a good character she will think he means it (maybe a little naïve sometimes). Unfortunately a lot of men still think that they can impress a woman by acting tough and being the macho man. That was the case in “the old days” when men were hunting for a mammoth. The modern woman can hardly be impressed by the macho behavior. They even think its repulsive behavior. Most women say; “Act normal” and I know it’s hard to believe, but when they say that, they really mean it.

Women don’t want show offs, but someone who knows what he wants and is decent. A woman wants kindness and friendliness but not a follower.

The man hardly knows how to behave these days. The Macho behavior will not be accepted but acting like a softy is out of the question too. That’s not what the women are waiting for. It’s not a choice between black or white, the right thing is grey.

Macho isn’t right, being a softy isn’t right, grey is the right turn. Grey; kindness, honesty, willpower, woman friendly, child loving, with social awareness and cheerful. It’s repulsive to see a show off, the “real man”, an ego tripper, a weak or soft in the head or lady killer kind of guy. It’s really not difficult to be friendly and kind without being a softy.


The knight and emotions.



Women want men to show their emotions and feelings. Men often think that women mean that they have to cry their eyes out all day. But that’s not what she means or asks from you. With showing emotions and showing his feelings she just means that a guy lets her know. Something like: “I’m irritated because I’ve had a bad day at work”.That way you show en let her know how you feel. Most of the time the woman starts showing interest in your side of the story and somewhere deep down she really hopes and even expects sometimes that the man is going to talk about it. Talking about your emotional life. When a man is outspoken about these things, he will find out that the relationship with the woman is a lot better. Otherwise women will get picky and nosy again, like I told in part 1.


A lot of men have a sympathetic friendly attitude when they just have met a woman, but it’s mostly used to pick up a woman. Often it isn’t the right image of the man they have in front of them, even though they think they see a nice, kind man in front of them. But a soon as things are getting serious, often things change. His true character often starts showing and then the first little arguments will start and in many cases the man gradually starts to show more dominance within the relationship.

As a man, try to keep a sincere attitude towards women and mean it. If you think that woman friendly behavior is just a little trick I will guarantee you that your future with wome is going to be a disaster in the long run. Don’t look at women and treat women as like they are ignorant, awkward, dumb or just a sex object. Just truly appreciate and respect them. You wouldn’t like to be seen as simply a source of income that is taken for granted would you?. A woman isn’t that difficult (ahum) if you take her seriously.

Great hub! Most women, too, don't want a man to "fix" her problems, just listen a bit, maybe offer advice, but not tell her how to fix things. A knight in shining armour.. that's right, sweep us off our feet and buy us new shoes!
