        Not bad, except I think I'd much rather have Rachel Ray in the kitchen and Martha Stewart in the bedroom.  And no, that's not really an attempt to be facetious!  big_smile

          Oh!  I'm half kidding...though all above is true.  wink Respect and love go with the territory.  Respect can be shown in many, many ways...like caring enough to take care of the finances when it is needed.  Or being best friends who share similar interests.

            All joking aside, I think you did make a very good point. Although it is a simple concept, it is very hard to find a companion who is also your best friend. Although love and respect are essential in any relationship, in the end, you must  be genuinely interested in them.

      Interesting. Most replies from women. 
      #1 thing a man will want from a woman, well other than the obvious...is accepting us AS WE ARE when you first meet us!!!!
      DO not try to change us.
      If a woman is attracted to a man when she meets him, it makes no sense to try to change him after dating a long time or especially after marriage. If you do not like his ways...then do not go out with us to start with.
      I am sure ladies will feel the same way when a man tries to change her ways.
      I have dumped dates and girlfriends instantly for this motive. It ends a relationship instantly. To me the woman has been dishonest with me from the beginning when this happens.
      Be who You are and I will be who I am...period.

        Personally I think that's part of respect, if you truly have respect for who someone is then you won't try to remake the person into who you think they should be rather than who they are.

        My own man needs respect, support, and understanding from me...and lots of snuggles! When he hasn't already been too drug out by the people at work talking to and around him all the time, stimulating conversation is also important to him...and otherwise, he really appreciates when I know to be quiet.

        what happens if the guy is faking or hiding something when you first meet?

          Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Then you dump him! Same goes for women who are hiding something or faking it. That is why I wrote after dating a long time or after marriage in my post.

            I get that. Missed that part of it before. I never wanted to change my man, I do love him just as he is. He doesnt belive me. He had this goofy idea about what he thought I wanted when we got together, so he tried to be that, all on his own. Now I have no idea what he wants...

      Respect, I think everyone deserves respect until they do something that shows they don't deserve it.

      No, I think what men really want is support, someone to be there for them, to encourage them when they doubt themselves, to console them when they fail and praise them in their success. Men want a woman that will let them be, themselves and will love them as they are.

      Actually, I think women aren't any different really. To be there for each other when needed while allowing each other to be.

      Romantic love was invented in the 19th Century, relationships arrived with D H Lawrence and then Cosmo told women what men wanted... We are lucky to live in an enlightened age.
