What women want

Updated on July 22, 2013

Differences attract

Lot of relationships end because the two parts can't really understand each other. It's extremely sad that pride often stands in the way and stops one from telling how you want it or what you mean instead of only thinking it and hope the other just get it anyway. Sorry, but that's not going to work in the long run. Women and men are different, and that is also what attract us to each other. We need to be a little bit different to be a complement to our better half, because if we are completely the same, what can we give to each other?


What do a woman want?

  1. Affection. It has to be shown. And that is way different from using just your words, even though they are also important as you can read below. Show your woman that you love her! Be close and touching, without the undertone that is has to lead straight into the bedroom. Many women can feel pressured if they get the feeling that when her man comes up close he want's sex, and pull away. That will eventually lead to a relationship with little intimacy. If she thinks touch equals sex, she won't give you the affection that you need either. Affection and sex is not the same, both of course are important, but if you try to cuddle more, touch more, kiss and make out just because it's nice, the sex will be awesome.
  2. Honesty. If you are totally honest with who's calling, who you're seeing (if she wonders) there should not be a problem. Men have a tendency of not seeing the importance of this matter, if you say so it is so, right? The thing is, women have a way of analyzing what you say, how you say it and pretty much everything about it. So if your ex text you, tell her, if it was your mum calling, say so. The mind of a woman can easily wander away if she starts to wonder, and the best way to avoid it is to always be one step ahead with the truth.
  3. Words. Tell your woman how you feel about her. Both men and women have a need to be reminded of the fact that their partner loves them. If you want to hear it, then she will want to hear it. Tell her that she looks stunning in her new dress, that you loved the dinner she cooked, that she looks hot naked or what ever compliment is suitable. And: A man should be that secure about himself that he has no problem saying "I love you" even if his buddies are around. She should have no doubt that you love her and that you think she is the most wonderful person in the world.


Women are emotional

Women are very emotional creatures and has a strong need to be emotionally fed. To share your feelings, in words and actions will bring you more close to each other and you will have a very intimate, strong and healthy relationship. Every action and every word should be filled with love and strength, and neither of you will ever doubt the others intention.

      Point #1: Affection. It has to be shown, not told or whatever.

      Point #3: Words. Tell your woman how you feel about her

      This article completely contradicts itself, almost within the same breath.

      Women can be complicated, but some even more, just plain silly at times--clueless.

      It's all good...but this article is a wonderful tipfest of information for the stupid man..."Women for Dummies" as it were.

      That may have to do with a woman's confidence. If it is low, she may not really believe that what you say is completely true, it kind of is your duty to say those things as a boyfriend. If a stranger says the same thing, which he has no obligation to, it may mean a little more right then and there when it's not expected. We women really are not that difficult, but both men and women act in strange ways when we feel insecure or small in the world :)

      This is great advice Jeshon and I will take heed, but why is it that when a complete stranger says a girl is attractive it seems to mean more to her than when her boyfiend/husband does? You girls make it difficult! Voted up!
