7 Things Women Want Most From Men

Updated on May 15, 2014

Women Are Different From Men

Women are very unique and different from men, with many different characteristics. This fact is demonstrated and displayed throughout life, from the way women and men handle certain situations to the different ways they think. Differences include women thinking, acting and reacting, and even feeling in opposition to men. This is a normal and natural part of life and love that makes it so interesting. The differences between women and men are numerous and very difficult to take an actual count of.

The differences women and men have do balance each other to create an equal, peaceful, and harmonious life with love together. A woman can not exist without a man because it is his seed that creates life. A man can not exist without a woman because that is who gave birth to them and brought them into this world. Men are complex in many ways and go about getting things done in a completely different way than women do. For example, men love tools, cars, and procrastinating. Women love talking, cuddling, and shopping. In the end, they both just want to be loved by the other sex.

Man Vs. Woman

What is Up With Women?

Women are also very unique and different from men because a woman's brain functions differently than a man's brain does. Women are ruled by emotions and feelings, which is usually the deciding factor when it comes to making many of her decisions and choices. Women are highly involved with their heart and how they feel because that is how her brain is wired. A woman's favorite way to start most sentences and conversations is by saying "I feel..." because women can feel so much, even more than a man, and often will express it verbally to others. Since women enjoy talking, they like to talk about the things that matter most to them, like family. Women can be thought of as being very difficult by many men, but the reality is that she is simple. Women do have a hard time making up their mind most if the time, and are often described as being fickle, but sometimes women do know exactly what they want and just how to get it.

What Do Women Really Want?

This famous question has been asked by men for many centuries, but they still can't seem to find an answer that fits. Women are emotional creatures that usually think and feel with their heart, instead of their brain and logic. Women can be fickle and indecisive most times, but women do know what they want when it comes to certain things. Sometimes it may seem like women don't know what they want, but that is far from the truth. Women may have a difficult time expressing exactly what they want because they communicate differently than men do. Women are known for dropping subtle hints and continuously talking about something that they want, but will usually never come right out and say it.

So what do women really want? Besides shoes and cuddling, women want the same things that men do, just in a different form. Women really want the things that make them feel good about themselves and about their relationship. Women really want to feel comforted and encouraged by their man, along with having the support and reassurance necessary for daily life. In reality, women really want their man. Women want their man to do certain things that make them feel special, like they are the only girl in the world. Now, that's not too much to ask for, is it?

7 Things Women Want Most From Men

Now that it's understood what women really want, which is their man, let us explore what women really want from their man in detail. Women need many different things from men, but there are 7 things that women want the most from men that they probably aren't getting. Whether it's from the subtle hints not being understood or men just not listening, this list will fully explain what women want the most from men. This list includes illustrations, since it is a fact that men are visual creatures that like to look at things. Since there are only 7 things on this list, it should be easy for any man to accomplish. And in return, be with a much happier woman in a much happier relationship. As the famous saying goes "a happy wife, a happy life" and it's completely true! When women are unhappy, they let the world know. So take notes because this list can be very valuable at any given period of time.

1. More Time.

This is the number one complaint that many women have about their man, that they do not spend enough time with them. Men not being home in time for dinner together after work is the biggest thing that all women despise. Time alone with each other is another big issue that women have with their man. It is often difficult to do with children and other responsibilities to tend to, but women like to be high on a man's priority list. Time together for intimacy, reconnection, and for fun makes any relationship stronger. This also allows for time to reconnect with each other and to focus only on the other person. Women do not like to be or to feel alone when they are in a relationship. Men do work much of the time, but they also need to spend more time with their woman to make her feel like she is important.

2. Put Down the Remote.

As we all know, women love to talk. Women enjoy talking to their friends and family often, but women really want to talk to their man more often. Women love to talk to their man about many different things, including their feelings and about their day. When a man listens to a woman, I mean really listens, that shows a woman that he cares about her feelings and cares about what she has to say. Women always have an opinion about everything, and they want their opinion to matter and to be valued by their man. Making eye contact with a woman while she is speaking, instead of looking at the television, is a sure way to let her know that you hear her loud and clear, and are giving her your undivided attention. Women hate when a man says "what?" after she just told him something that was very important to her. Women really want a man to choose her over the television when she is talking, simple isn't it?

3. Amorous Sex.

Believe it or not, but women are sexual creatures just like men are. Women can become sexually frustrated, which can dampen their mood. Women enjoy having sex just like men do, but women want more than just the act of sex. Women want passionate sex that is hot and steamy, like in the movies. Playing romantic music with candlelight and rose petals is a bit cliché, but a great way to set the mood for a woman to feel sexy. Women enjoy being held tightly, having their hair stroked, and lots of kissing. Softly whispering sweet phrases into her ear, like "I love you so much", can further enhance the excitement. To drive a woman wild, look deeply into her eyes during and stay to cuddle and talk afterward. Women like to feel like they are connecting with their man during sex, not just a "wham, bam, thank you ma'am" kind of time.

4. Lots of Romance.

Women are in love with romance, and it's because of all the television shows, books, and movies that demonstrate romance. Romance is defined as expressing one's love for another person. Women yearn to be 'swept off their feet' by their man. It's not difficult to be romantic with a woman because it's the small things that matter most to a woman. Having romantic evenings with your woman, or even having romantic moments with your woman often, is a definite way to satisfy her. Being romantic is sometimes best for when she has had a bad day or just feels insecure at that moment. A few ways to be romantic are:

  • Surprise her by taking her to somewhere that she enjoys.
  • Doing what she wants to do for the evening.
  • Buy her flowers unexpectedly.

5. Much Appreciation.

Women do so much to take care of that special man in their life, and they want to be noticed for all of the things that they accomplish everyday. Women work very hard outside of the home and within the home to make sure everything is taken care of. Women want to be noticed for their hard work, just like men do. Women want to be appreciated in ways that only their man can give them. Some great ways to show a women appreciation include:

  • Tell her "thank you so much" often in a sincere and meaningful way.
  • Give her an extra long hug and kiss, then finish with "thank you for all that you do/did."
  • Spend a romantic evening cooking for her, then having a conversation over dinner about how you appreciate everything that she does for you.
  • Give her a back and/or foot rub while listening to what she want to talk about.

6. To Be Surprised.

No matter what women may tell men, deep down they enjoy surprises from their man and being surprised by their man. Since women enjoy romance, they also enjoy romantic surprises. A romantic surprise from their man is extra special because he actually took the time and invested effort to produce something that is extra thoughtful just for her. Romantic surprises can be a surprise exotic vacation or a surprise gift for now reason at all. A woman can be very surprise by her man if he cleaned up and did all of the laundry for her so she don't have to do it. Creative romantic surprises can be found anywhere, just with a little imagination.

7. To Get Married and Start a Family.

From the time women are little girls, they dream of getting married and starting a family of their own. Many women have been with their man for many years, with no sign of engagement or marriage in the near future. To get right to the point, women want to commit and have long term relationships with a man. This includes settling down to start roots. Women are very independent with their careers and their own way of living, but it does get lonely for them. Many single women are envious of other women who are married and/or have a family of their own. Start thinking about commitment, if you haven't already, to keep your woman happy. If you have committed already, then children are right around the corner. Women want a man to grow old with and to create memories with, so don't hold back.

      Half or MORE of the items in the picture at the top are actually REVERSED for me and my husband (or are fairly equal), but the numbered items are spot on (except talking; I HATE talking. And cuddling, ugh, let's get to the main entree, am I right? ;) ). Admittedly, I'm already well-aware that I am NOT the "typical woman," but most of it still applies. Time, attention, and affection are the biggest three I can think of. Showing interest in her interests without making it about HIS interests is nice, too. Ideally, you want to do things BOTH of you like, but give and take is important.

      Great article. I agree with your first statement, that women want more time with the man they love.

      If I could have anything, I would spend more time with my husband. And I'd like it if he put his phone away when we do spend time together.

      Thanks for writing.

      I like number 2, everything else I have from my man. I don't think I ever asked him to take out the trash, if he does not take it out, I know he is not feeling well, and I take it out.

      Good hub!

      Agreed! Check out my other hub about what men want. It is the same things, just on a manly level.

      I think a lot of men are as the same as women, but hide it because they think it makes them look weak.

      If I had to guess, I would guess that women want to be equal partners in a romance, equal partners in a marriage, equal partners in a business, and ONLY equal partners in the care, maintenance, upkeep, cleanliness and tidiness of the home.

      Of course the degree of the items listed is always dependent on the women, which differs from one to the next.

      I agree, for the most part. Being complimented too often though makes compliments insincere. As a woman, I don't want a constant barrage of compliments lol, but I definitely want some!

      Being a girl I can admit that these are the absolute right points mentioned as in what does a girl want from her man. Affection, love, attention, time and care are the most important points.
