10 Things Girls Want From Guys

Updated on December 6, 2013

Love is defined as being a strong feeling or attraction to another that includes sexual attraction. This feeling is so strong that you always want to be around, speak to, and/or feel comforted by this person that you are in love with.

1. Love

Due to a female's hormones, environment, upbringing, and varies other reasons, one of the many things that we want the most is love. Whether this love comes from a relationship, family, or friend, we would love the fact that there is someone out there, who cares about us as we do about them. The hormones or feelings that you receive from love gives you a sense of euphoria, or complete happiness. These same feelings you can receive when you eat a piece of chocolate or when you are on drugs. Love, love, love, so hard to attain sometimes and yet so nearby sometimes it is best as young women we open our eyes to something that we have never seen before. Sometimes, in order to love someone, we first must love ourselves first.

2. Loyalty

Loyalty is defined as being loyal or standing by the side of a person or something. Loyalty is a term and/or act that is hard to come by especially in this day and age. Due to technology, trends, and the constant changing environment, loyalty has been put on the back burner, or certainly isn't as it use to be and more and more people are doing what they want instead of doing as they say they will. The term "backstabbing" is so common nowadays that you never know who is on your side or who is secretly plotting against you. Loyalty from a guy is hard due to the ever-changing environment and guys sense of mentality that being loyal means that you are soft and that being single is the way to go about your life. On the contrary, I am not stating that all men have this mentality, I am saying that the immature ones do.

3. Trust

Trust is a term that can be defined as putting your belief and faith in a person that they will do as they say they will, that they won't portray your secrets, and that they will always be there for you when you need them. Trust is another hard thing to come by. Instead of acting as we should, sometimes we act as we see others act. In a way our environment and our peers play a huge part in how we learn to trust, how we trust others, and if or when will trust ourselves around others. Young women want to trust their significant other or a male but sometimes it is hard due to what society is telling us and due to what could have possibly happened in a past relationship.


4. Honesty

Honesty can be defined as being truthful; speaking on what actually occurred or was said among yourself or others. Being honest can show a woman how much respect that you have for them and how you care about their feelings. The best way to be honest in my opinion is to never do anything that can cause you to be dishonest. We want honesty and the first impression goes a long way when you are meeting someone for the first time. In other words, being honest from the beginning can show a women that you are honest person and could possibly lead us to trusting you.

5. Communication

Communication or speaking with a woman is never hard, depending on who the person is, her background, etc. : ) I am only joking, of course. When you are speaking to a women, you have to first listen to what she is talking about, especially when it is a serious conversation. A huge part of communication is listening on understanding what your significant other or the person you are speaking with is trying to say. Women want communication, whereas we feel that you are taking our feelings into account and that you are actively participating in the conversation but most importantly you care about what you or what she is saying.

What would you consider to be the number one thing a woman wants from a man ?

See results

6. Listener

A good listener is someone who pays attention and someone who doesn't have to constantly ask for you to repeat yourself. Being a good listener goes along the lines with being good with communicating with others. Women want a good listener who they feel understands what they are trying to say or at least have a different perspective on how they are trying to solve a particular problem or situation.


7. Sex

Sex is a topic that females do speak about believe it or not with other female friends, of course. You have to understand that sex is important to us as it is to men. We do care about being treated the right way or the most pleasurable way in the bedroom. We might tell you one thing to make you feel good and we might tell our friends a completely different story or the truth. Sometimes, we might just be straightforward about the situation despite how uncomfortable we might be bringing it up. Women want a man who can not only please them emotionally and mentally but physically as well.

8. Creativity/ Open-Mindedness

Women appreciate creativity and open-mindedness to ideas and meeting new people. Naturally, everyone gets bored from every day life. Being creative can help your emotional state and even physical part of your relationship or date life. Coming up with new adventures to partake in or simply being spontaneous can really help a relationship.

9. Reminder

Every once in a while, whether we speak on it or not. us women want to be reminded that we are loved and cared about. This can be shown to us by taking us on a date, a card, a romantic dinner, flowers, etc. I know the card and dinner might sound a little cheesy, but personally speaking, I am someone who enjoys the simple things in life. I appreciate anything anyone does for me whether it is big or small so I would be okay with flowers or a card.

10, Respect

Respect can be defined as an admiration or feelings towards someone due to their abilities or achievements. Respect is another huge factor in relationship or what women ultimately want from a male. We want to be respected as in talked to as if we mean something and as in never talking down to us.

      I agree with the 10 things you state girls want from guys. In addition, there is one you have not listed which traditionally has been very important all over the world and is now very important in Far Eastern countries. That is financial support or money from guys. In most Asian countries, a man can not get married or even have a girl friend if he has no money. If you check out divorce proceedings in the States, isn't money in the form of alimony or child support very important? I'm sharing this very good hub with HP followers and on Facebook.

      Money would be the number one thing for most women. I guess being loved is more important to you.

      This is a very good hub. These are all very important things that make a relationship sail or fail. Often, if just one or two of these 10 things falls by the way, so does the relationship. Thanks for sharing with us.

      Seems straight forward, but not always so easy to find or achieve. I think most men and women want the majority of these, but as you say, the modern world throws in a lot of twists.

      Good article! It is very important that a girl knows what she wants. Your list is reasonable and hopefully each expectation can be checked at the appropriate stage of the relationship.
