Important Qualities Men Should Have
Qualities Men Should Have
For the past year or so, I've been pondering this question, myself. I mean what qualities does a man need to have in order for the relationship to be solid, or at least somewhat solid. Well, I've composed a short list of qualities that I find useful in a man.
Men should always have the ability to make a girl laugh. If a girl can't rely on her man to bring her up on a down day, who else can she rely on?
Humor in the sense that he is able to make her smile while she's crying. Not, irritate her while she's depressed by making constant inappropriate jokes.
But, remember that life's not all jokes. He must know when to be serious.
Men that are able to be understanding when things come up in a woman's life, tend to be ranked higher up in my books than those men who only see one thing.
Yes, plans are great, but sometimes things come up. So, get over it!
Be sweet... Give complements, open the door, pull out a chair.
But, don't point out that you've just done something sweet.
Men that can be there for a woman when she's in a time of need, work wonders in a relationship. Especially, those men that don't mind tears on their shoulders. Men that are able to help and give useful advice when she's in need have my heart.
Let her go first!
Yes, the one who goes first is the dominant one right?
Get over it men. Hold open a door once in a while. But, don't beat her down in order to get to the door first. Speed up a foot, but don't run or push her out of the way.
That's just plain rude.
Don't be Selfish
Pay for a dinner and a movie now and then. And don't ask for gas money.
But, it's not just about money. Don't be selfish with your time. If you're free and she's free, go to the park.
Don't be selfish about her time. If you're free, and she's not, don't guilt her into going to the park.
I almost forgot one of the biggies.... Be honest! Don't lie. Lies compile until you just unravel.
Don't eliminate a portion of a story. This part of the story could be what defines the truth or a lie. This scene removal could constitute as a lie, even if you weren't doing anything wrong, you set yourself up for her to think you did.
Yes, we all know it takes men a much longer time to mature than it takes women.
Men, try harder!
I mean stop the immature, fart jokes. Most women don't like it.
There's a time and place for sexual innuendoes and jokes. And, that's not all the time.
Men, it's not all about you. Give her some time to shine.
