    Women don't understand women either. Nor do men understand men.

    Women want a lot of what a man wants, they just need to experience in a different way than a man.  I wrote an article that talks about that here:  It's not just about being a lover, but how to love a woman.  I hope that helps!

    women want a stable relationship.
    we want to feel special, and like to feel like we're the star of a romance novel.
    we want to be spoiled and loved and we want to know for sure that we are.

    YA man never know what really want in this world

    When man have money, she look for love.
    when man have Good position and Salary, she look for status.
    When man have Car and other stuff , she aims for Buglaow.

    When Man have nothing, she aim to leave her alone.

    What I really want as a woman, could be different to what another woman really wants. We are not all the same in our wants and needs, just like men.

    Women want honesty, loyalty..(no cheating) and recognition as a human being. They do not want to be put down, or considered as lesser because they have more visable emotions, and because they do the dishes instead of "work."

    Women seem to think they want the bad boys, but in fact they don't. They want to feel loved, secure, beautiful and special. We do not like liars, cheaters or snakes (men who openly flirt with other women in front of you), otherwise known as 'sleazes'.

    Hope this helps!

    A woman lets you know what she wants as well as needs.  As for a man, if you are attentative and pay attention to the woman in your life, you will know what your woman needs and provide it accordingly.  It's called communication, whether verbal or physical---- it never fails!

    Women want a man, someone that holds them at night, honest, and trusworthy. Someone who is on the same level. Hard working, Loves,  that's soulmate that God sent just for her. Man who knows how to be gentle and caring, Laughter is what he brings to my life. He makes me smile from my soul, When he's here my world is at peace, this man this man, A man who knows how to be a strong man, standing on his own to feet, a man who is a King looking for his Queen, to cherish for the rest of their lives, build a life, start a family.

    Women are a bit schizophrenic about what they want. The female accesses both hemispheres of the brain and approach the same basic need in two apparently different ways. They want security, a basic primitive desire, and they want excitement. The docile man who is a steady dependable provider is attractive to a degree but he lacks the animal magnetism of the strong caveman bad boy type.  The latter ,in a primitive setting could provide safety and security to sleigh the saber tooth tiger but in this society he is the predator (so to speak). The former is todays provider, steady and constant, but a bit boring. Occasionally the two are blended but not often!

    I have asked hundreds of women this question over the last 30 years: What do you want most? The universal answer has been this, with no exceptions: To be adored and cherished by you, and to know that she is more important than any person or anything in the world. But you must give enough evidence of this to be convicted in court.

    I know this is an old, old question, but I can't resist.

    To answer honestly (and possibly put some people off me for good)... first of all, I'll just say I don't want a man at all.

    I'm done with that. Maybe there are some decent men out there, but I have yet to find one. I've got some good male friends, none of which would make decent husbands or even so-so boyfriends.

    I had somewhat low standards in the beginning, found a guy who seemed great and turned out to be a dangerous sociopath. I had a boyfriend who seemed great and turned out to be a pothead. My father IS great, but he's bipolar and that makes life very hard.

    All people, including me, have glaring flaws, and I'm just not willing to live with anyone else's. I don't need the mess. I don't need the strain. I don't need the emotional abuse. I'm sick to death of it.

    But that's me. Stricktlydating said it best... we all want something different.

    Most Of The Time In A Relationship Men Don't Understand The needs of women! We Look For Someone That Understands Us Completely!! Men Sometimes thinks that we look for them to buy us things (material things) but that's not the case.. We Need Our Men's ATTENTION!! We Need Love, Dedication, and Loyalty!! That's all we ask for..We Need To Know That You Care!!

    This differs for every woman and changes as a woman grows up.

    When I was younger, I wanted a pretty boy.

    A few years later, I wanted a stable man.

    A year after that, I wanted a man who wasn't too possessive.

    When I stopped looking for 1 or 2 elements, I found a guy who was strong, tender, passionate, and would look after me without being controlling and wasn't threatened by my independence. He also wasn't afraid to put his foot down, when he thought it was merited.

    It's a balancing act. He's not everything I ever wanted in a fantasy lover, but he's everything that makes up a real man.

    I'm humbled by how lucky I got.

    I wrote a short hub on the subject … Women-Want

    But, different women want different things.The best advice I could give you is to pay attention to what she is saying.

    Women are not a piece of furniture that must be kept at home as some believed, rather they are lovely angel that must be treated with respect and love. They need to be pampered, shower with gifts, appreciated, and complemented. In fact they are godess that must be worshipped.

    Women don't understand men either. What does a MAN really want? Its a matter of personal preference and opinions. As for the understanding part, you can live with a woman/man for years and you still wouldn't understand them. This kind of question kinda goes up there with that one life question, "what is the meaning of life?"

    We are all not the same but we all love cute guys, that have a great  sense of humor because we all love to laugh. But one thing is that  we cannot be worship cause we might go out of control.

    Women want a man do love them, treat them with respect, make them feel good about themselves, be honest with them, show they care, listen to them, support them in life and their decisions and to satisfy a few other (hmmmm) needs as well....

    I recommend reading the book "Men from Mars, Women are from Venus". This gives some good insights.

    Well, a woman wants to be protected, wants to have a secured love, honest relationship, understanding.

    Strictlydating is so right. We're not all the same and as such, we have individual wants and needs. I may be very shallow and insecure, but what I most want from a mate is to be made to feel sexy and desirable. I want to be appreciated and indulged (spoiled a bit, I guess). I want to feel everyday as if I am the most special thing in the world to my mate and that he loves me unconditionally.

    I want a mate that solicits and values my opinions.

    I want a mate that has his own interests and doesn't smother me. I need to be independent, but that is not the same as being ignored. No one wants to be ignored.

    I want a mate that shares some of my life goals (or at least supports me in them) such as international traveling and competing in triathlons around the country.

    I want a mate that is sexually compatible and that I continue to find sexually attractive. That means that he enjoys the same frequency and level of uninhibited experimentation that I do. It also means that he needs to take care of himself and I'll promise to do the same.

    And this is the most shallow of all my comments, but I want a man who is self-sufficient, someone who can take care of himself and doesn't need my money. While I am quite capable of taking care of myself, I find it very comforting to have a man that take care of me also.
