Relationship 101: What Men Want In Women?

Updated on July 27, 2009

Many girl ask this question "What really men want in their girlfriend?"

Most men want acknowledgment and appreciation from women. Learning to acknowledge instead of making your partner wrong is one of the most powerful relationship survival tools available to you.

Women have tried pretty much everything to answer this questions for ages.
In this article i post some tips where women find the things that their men wants.

For me it's pretty simple; deep inside the heart of every man is a secret wish that their girl is to be trusted.


  1. Men want honest, timely, loving communication.
    Honest communication is top priority for men. They want a woman who answers questions honestly, and perhaps even volunteers information.

    Great men want and need straightforward, courageous communication without anger or criticism.

  2. Men want you to look great. (Your very best)
    She is sexy without being trampy.

  3. She has a life of her own. Dependable Character.
    Men want a partner who can laugh at herself and who has courage and strength. They want a woman who can see her part in relationship dynamics and own it. She has to be emotionally stable.

  4. Men want a manipulation-free relationship.
    Men want no manipulation of any kind. They do not want to read their partner's mind or try to interpret signals. They do not want to be forced to move faster in a relationship than they are ready.

  5. Men want you to listen to them and treat them with respect.
    Many women treat men in ways that diminish their egos, making them feel inadequate. Men would rather have more praise, more acknowledgment of what they do right, more acknowledgment that they are great guys who are loved and appreciated.

  6. Mutual attraction and love.
    Men get turned on by different things that a woman does. A woman wants to know she's "the only one he loves" and that he digs her. A man wants his partner to be a bit of a lusty animal in bed.

  7. Men need private time, to unwind, to engage in sports and hobbies, and to spend time with other men.
    Some men need a few minutes to unwind when they walk in the door before sharing the day's challenges.
  8. Men want fidelity and a commitment to the relationship.
    Fidelity is an absolute must. In fact, men want a woman who does not have a "roaming eye" and who can wholeheartedly commit to the relationship.

    "Women think that all men want is sex", and that men will leave a relationship for the next prettier face. Women think men cannot be trusted to be faithful. Women believe men do not want to work on a relationship; that when the going gets tough, they run.

      Well I reckon you have two hubs in one! Just change all the Women words to Men and all the Men words to women apart from one tiny tiny but very important piece - most women do not want a "lusty animal in bed" but would love a sexually mature, sexually knowledgable, sensitive man willing to learn and grow with her in the art of loving"
