Top 7 qualities men want in a woman

Every man has his own characters he desire in a woman as every woman is unique.

It is not difficult to guess, all men want their woman to have a Victoria's secret appearance, a baby doll with manicure and sexy outfit, but it's a false assumption. So we took an opinion poll to find out what do men really look for in a woman. According to this survey we have found out a few common qualities that every man want in a woman.

The following are qualities that men would like to see in a woman they date with:

1. Great personality.

It is the first criteria how men feel about being around a woman, if they feel comfortable or under pressure. Most men prefer easy going, friendly and down to earth women.

2.Be intelligent.

Men over 40 are looking for a woman to be compatible with, share common interests, have common goals. Being compatible means to have more fun from life with your better half.

3.Good sense of humor.

It's a key quality in any relationship. Having a partner with great sense of humor will enlighten your dating and bring joy and fun in your life.

4. Be feminine.

Men prefer tender and feminine women than cruel dictators. Men don't like to be henpecked, show him you need him, and he'll be there any time.

5. Be Reliable.

Always keep your promises, be responsible, so he know you worth be trusted. Women who don't keep their promises, who are late on dates, who lie will be treated the same way.

6. Be Confident.

Men are more attracted to women, who project confident, feel comfortable in their own skin. A happy woman, always smiley in a great mood, this type of women is very appealing to men.

7. Be direct about what you want.

Men are practical they always say what's on their mind, while women try to hide what they really think or what. This involve a lot of misunderstanding between men and women. Women be direct about your wish and you'll definitely get what you want.
