What do Women Look for in a Man?

Updated on May 18, 2015

Do you find it difficult to attract women?

Maybe you just don't know what women want / need to find themselves attracted to a man. So here's a few tips you may find helpful when trying to impress a girl.

Some of the attributes women are looking for in the opposite sex are:

A girl just doesn't like to be played. There is a difference between a playful exchange calculated to gain the girl's interest and downright disrespect meant to harm so don't tell lies about yourself; you will be found out.

  • humour

There is nothing more attractive to a girl (of any age) than a man with a sense of humour. Be careful though what kind of humour you unleash on the girl; sexual innuendo will not go down well so steer clear.

  • good presentation

You do not have to be a great looking guy but you do need to be clean and neat and preferably appropriately attired. By that I mean you need to understand what kind of girl you want to attract and dress accordingly. A sporty type might prefer you a bit more rugged looking than a girl who likes the suit.

  • intelligent conversation and good manners:
  1. Do have some amusing topics/anecdotes prepared to keep her attention

You want to keep the conversation light and fairly general at the beginning to put the girl at ease. If she's interested she'll start asking you questions about yourself and you can, in turn, proceed to question her. Nothing too serious, just about her work and interests. Do not ask the girl if she has a boyfriend; you should be able to grasp from her body language and general flow of the conversation whether she's available or not.

2. Do pay for her drinks if you've met at a bar/cafe

It will show the girl you are interested, not just passing the time while you're waiting for someone better to come along.

  • job

Real women are after real men. If you can't take care of yourself you will hardly come across as a potential partner for life for the girl. Women are always looking for a good provider for their future children.

  • teeth

Your own teeth are a MUST!

All kidding aside, you do have to present well to attract a girl so cast a critical eye over yourself and improve what can be improved upon.

Things to avoid when trying to attract a girl

  • rudeness
  • loud and obnoxious behaviour in a public place calculated to attract her attention
  • boasting about how much money you make
  • treating the girl as if she should be thankful for your attention
  • divulging intimate details about the partners you've had

The list of things you shouldn't do when you're trying to attract women is a lot more exhaustive than the suggestions outlined above but you get the drift.

Really, what it comes down to is being a well-rounded human being who has something to offer to the opposite sex so just be your nice, normal self and good results will follow. Good luck!

In your experience, women looking for a partner are mostly interested in the following:
