        Ultimately women want love, or I don't think most women know what they want

          Most women want the type of man that does not believe that a woman does not know what she wants.

      A good man... 
      One who posses patience, sincere kindness, with a strong listening capacity, and the strength to support your decisions despite how others may perceive them.

    That depends on the woman. For me, it's

    1. Physical attraction.  It doesn't matter what your qualities, nothing follows if the relationship doesn't have this. I'm not talking good looking, but pheromones.

    2. Common interests. I couldn't be with a man I don't enjoy doing things with.

    3. Sense of humor. One needs that to put up with me.

    4. A good heart. He has to have compassion for humanity.

    5. Relatives who live out of town. I really hate having to deal with relatives.

      More relationship fails over finance than sex

      You look at the top romance movies of all time, :Ghost and Pretty Woman

      Being dead is not attractive to me, yet looks and money would first get you in the door. After a wail, it will take many acts of kindness, humor and a whole lot of love to keep it together...

        Money doesn't mean much to me. I've seen a lot of miserable rich marriages. But, like I said. What women want depends on the woman

          That is why a said, Ultimately women want love,

          In the end, the man standing there, saying to himself
          Gee, I gave her the car, the house and the kids,

          When she really wanted was his attention and love. Women have a different point system than men

            Gave her stuff? That's one problem with the way guys think. You share, you compromise, you can't just give. That's what gets them in trouble. If you give, give, give; you condition a woman to take, take, take.

              Yes, men think more with their minds, women think more with their hearts.

              Rule is, only give a little extra to anyone or everyone, never too much or they will disrespect you in the end.

              was thinking along the same lines,if I could add changing a tyre and maybe a tune up (car) every once in a while be helpful too.

              But just in case any man is offended at being thought of 'being used' Im willing to trade chores i.e laundry for lawns, meal for car work etc.

      it's hard to listen to your mate when you are making love to their sister at the same time.

      Plus, no doubt what they have to say will be negative and somewhat antagonistic

    My mother always said that a good husband was like a good used car:
    reliable
    dependable
    doesn't require a lot of expensive or complicated maintenance
    works, and
    just boring enough so that nobody wants to steal him/it.

      Ivorwenposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Forget boring!  Just put a good anti-theft system on him, namely, your lips.  He'll have a very hard time looking elsewhere while kissing you.

      My husband is like a suped up off-roading vehicle.  One would be crazy to steal him 'cause you certainly can't hide him.  And while I find him very dependable, I don't know that he would run well for anyone else -- the tricks of a vehicle you know and love.  wink

        Changing is more of a woman thing, women are thinking more like men in relating them to a car, that's ok a degree of detachments is healthy

        I like the kissing policy, like an apple a day, a kiss or more, I would love to give freely daily

        1. Hollie Thomas profile image60

          Changing is more of a woman thing

          Is this analysis based on your experiences as a woman in a relationship with a man?

            No,
            Man biggest complaint about women is they are always trying to change them, for Women it's not enough attention from men.

            Do I look like a women?, aw gee thank you, I also eat nails for breakfast

    Someone who knows who he is and is comfortable in his own skin.  I find a great personality, kindness, and a sense of humor can make anyone more attractive if they're genuine.  Patience is a must.  Men with anger management problems are unattractive to me, no matter how much money they have or how aesthetically attractive they are.  I don't think that having nice clothes, hair etc... are as important as just taking care of yourself.  Showering regularly is appreciated by women everywhere!  LOL!!!  My husband is a perfect match for me.  11 years and counting! big_smile

    women may say all kinds of things about what they want in a man, but when you look around you see that there just ain't no accountin for taste!  it's not what we want, apparently, but what we're willing to settle for!

    I am the ideal man, now please worship me and feed me grapes.  wink 

    I think an ideal guy, from a woman's perspective, would be someone with their own life.  He is someone who has goals and a vision about where he wants to be.  He is not needy because he has already found what he needs within himself, which in turn makes him ooze confidence.  He may also be funny, cute, hot, have a nice ass, and a devilish grin, but all this is just icing on the cake. 

    I could be WAY of base here though!  Based my experience, woman are very confusing creatures that might not know what they want from one second to the next smile
