What Women Want

Updated on October 25, 2010

What Women Want

Men are often confused about what women want or prefer and sometimes consider them a complicated species. In general, if you want to know about something or are confused you would go to the source for clarification. However, in the case the solution is not as simple since women tend to give bad advice regarding what they want. 9 times out of 10 a woman would probably just say "be yoursef". But what if "being yourself" isn't getting you anywhere? Having noticed this phenomenon I’ve created a list of things women want. Consider all of these items and you can be sure to please any woman that walks into your life! Now on to…

What Do Women Want?
What Do Women Want?

Do women want...

…someone independent? A definite yes! Women prefer a man that knows how to look after himself. I mean, fellas, if you can’t take care of yourself then how do you think she feels about you taking care of her? Show her that you can make your own decisions and manage all aspects of your life.

…someone who is confident? You hear this over and over from women and it is true! Confidence is probably the number one characteristic that women love in men. Now there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. Being confident means you are comfortable with yourself and who you are then being able to portrait that in relaxed, easy going vibe. Arrogance, on the other hand, lends to putting others down, being harsh and trying to make yourself look good with overly cocky statements. This is an immediate turn off; please avoid this at all costs.

…someone who is good-looking? I am here to tell you no! If you are not a male model that does not mean you will not be able to date an attractive girl. Women are not like men (who are more attracted to visual stimuli). However, a well groomed man is much more attractive than one that isn’t. Ensure that you wear clothes that fit you well, stay in shape, shave and trim your nails. These things will get you very far!

…someone who is rich? I will have to say no! Sure, there are women out there that gold diggers and only want a man for their money. You can easily see through this type of women as they never offer to pay for anything and upon meeting you they ask questions to ascertain your wealth such as “what car do you drive?”. They may be beautiful and you will be tempted to spend your money on her but if you cannot keep “paying” for her company she will leave you. So what if you do not have all the money in the world but would still like to have a chance with a top notch girl? I will tell you that women are attracted to ambitious men. You may be dirt poor but if you are hard-working and have goals, a woman worth your time will find that very attractive.

…someone with a sense of humor? Yes, humor is very important and women love a funny guy. This shows that you are not boring, negative and you know how to have a good time. Women are addicted to fun! However, like all things in life, you need a balance. Know when to be funny and when to be serious, there is nothing more upsetting to a woman when she feels that you are not taking her seriously!
