What are THE MOST IMPORTANT qualities in a man, ladies? For me, he must be highly
intelligent, humane, a good conversationalist, giving, and an EXCELLENT cook! If he CANNOT COOK, he isn't going to cut it!
I agree with the excellent cook. Definately intelligent. Funny and spontaneous but loves being at home. Honestly, I love philosophers because they are always thinking outside of the box. A handy man is always valuable as well, so women don't have to do the dirty work And my husband is all of the above.
Honest, loving, hard working and a good at communication. All the rest doesn't matter to me. My husband has cooked 3 times in 6 years. It is not important at all to me.
A handy man for sure! Handy in the kitchen, handy in the bathroom, handy in the bedroom, handy in the yard, handy in the living room and handy with the car! I think that covers it!
He has to be honest, and good hygiene! He needs to have a job and be respectful!
I love a good sense of humor, someone who can laugh with me (not at me--that is a different kind of humor I don't care for.) I want a man who is absolutely loyal, funny, kind and caring. (oh wait, I have one 42 years this week!)
He can always learn to cook.
Given the proponderance of women who knowingly date or marry violent men (Rihanna & Chris Brown, Hope Solo & Jerramy Stevens) I think a lot of women like brutish caveman types, though they would never admit it in public because it's so politically incorrrect.
And just to be "fair" to the other side, a lot of men go gaga over the mentally ill damsel in distress types; it gives them the opportunity to play knight in shining armor.
I think the weaknesses that people find attractive are fascinating.
Though you're right, you're wrong in generalising. That's the impression the media give us. In any case both of the types you mentioned are people with disfunctional backgrounds that have unsolved issues. Sometimes weaknesses are attractive-agree.
"Eventually you love people - friends or lovers - because of their flaws."
That is the point where my wife and I go through in life. Cooking is not an issue as it can be learned.
Second it communication. It is the root of most problem as people do not communicate with one another. That leads to worry and suspicion of one another.
We can all write whatever we think is ideal, but the qualities of the person we are next to reflect our own personality. So no matter what we write, we should first reflect on the gents we are married to or date. Those men and their qualities are what we really look for in a man whether we realise it or not. Having said that, for me it has always been: a sense of humour and the quality to move me; usually attractive eyes or expression. Luckily for me gwilliams, my husband is a better cook than myself and more often than not cooks (but it wasn't a quality I had been looking for).
I'm not too worried whether he could cook or not, though it would be a bonus
The most important qualities in a man when it comes to potential relationships for me are: Sincerity, easy going-happy nature, and someone trustworthy.
Good personality. Kindness.
Warm, deep eyes and an infectious smile.
Affectionate, patient, honourable, willingness to openly communicate and the wisdom to hold his hands up if he makes a mistake - those will do for starters!
The #1 most important thing for me is that he be honest. I don't understand why it's so hard for some people to tell the truth.
I don't see really difference between men and women, I think both of us look for the same traits important in a long run, if you want your relationship to last: integrity, trust, honesty and humour.....everything else is just a bonus:)
Qualities are dependent on the situations, for example intelligence and conversation fails when we find an aspect of respect. The more intelligence you show to your elders, it would count negatively and it is not seemingly possible. Sometime we have to make a silence on our conservation so that we might get listen others. The most important quality is the need of time and environment. If it fits in that parameter, it should be highly rewarded but if it fails, it should not be called quality, but a non-sense and mislead!
Being single, I know I do not wish this to be a permanent condition, so I have thought of the qualities I need in a mate. He will be kind, attractive to me, and honest, yes a high level of honesty is important. No one is l00 percent honest, we all have a small private part of us, this is okay. I will have high respect for him, as I also know this is important for a man to feel. I guess I'm just wanting to meet an all around great guy, who is patient and flexible. He will be proud to be a man, and willing to step up to the plate, and relax
I was taught that ALL women secretly crave "bad boys". Am I mistaken?

I recently asked a group of single men, 23 to 35 years old, how they felt a woman would answer that question. Mixed reviews. I would love to get the many Hub-Lady's outlooks. This is as diverse and varied a group as I'll ever find.Be as honest or brutal as you feel the answer warrants. Thank you...
