Most important quality of a guy

  1. garrettdixon profile image59

    I was wondering, what do you guys think is the most important or needed quality of a man in a relationship?

    1. AEvans profile image78
      AEvansposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      The most important quality in a man is.....


      Understanding and they need to be able to give and take. A relationship is 50/50 not 80/20.

      1. garrettdixon profile image59
        garrettdixonposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        But do you really think most guys actually can completely understand what some women talk about?  Everything is relative so they can only apply it to what they actually know.

      The most important quality for a guy is...ready for this...........
      TO BE HIMSELF.

      He has not ever have to prove anything to anyone else man or woman just to impress.

      He has to first accept himself as he is.

      Making mistakes, realising them & rectifying them along the way learning & adapting as he goes along........
      to make him the man he is today!

      A man is a man & he makes of himself who he is right now!

      Empathy.

      It's about as rare as finding a four-leaf clover. In fact, I've found a 4-leaf clover in my life, but I've yet to find a man who "gives a sh*t" enough to stick around when the going gets tough.

      By skilled communicator, do you mean that you would just want him to tell you how he feels about things?

    a man needs to be smart - commonsense smart - if he is then he'll be gentle, and if he's gentle he'll be loving and understanding, and if he's loving and understanding he can get just about everything he wants!

    What women say they want and what the actually want are two entirely different things.

    1. garrettdixon profile image59
      garrettdixonposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      How do you tell the difference?

      1. passthejelly profile image79
        passthejellyposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        I think its a life long process to figure out the difference my friend.  It all comes from experience.  The most important quality women look for in men is not that his is nice and sweet it is that he is dominate and manly.  Women want assertive guys that take change for the most part.  The do not desire needy men, or desperate men.  They desire driven men with purpose and self value.  They desire leaders.  Leaders that improve the quality of those around them.  Basically trust what makes you a man and rid yourself of any insecurity and there will be masses of women wanting a relationship with you and it well be very successful.

    Big muscles, small brain, very handsome, tall but not too tall and a few mill in the bank.

    Able to talk about sports trivia for hours on end (you KNOW you love it!).

    Has lots of male friends he can invite over to keep you from loneliness.

    Knows where all the best porn sites are.

    Snores loudly (sexy, am I right or am I right?)

    Isn't bound by convention - burps, spits and scratches when and where he damn well feels like it.

    That's at least the START of a perfect man.. or a perfect something..

    Can a thoughtful man ever marry someone? Don't get it in the wrong way, but marriage may be a by-default faulty idea to some people. Old age may change the view. Then too, bums can manage!

    In my experience, as long as he's not a douche (pardon the french...although douche means shower in french if I'm not mistaken....) and he has drive and motivation to succeed and be happy in life, he's good enough to me.

    If he's not terribly attractive, for me, honestly a really great personality easily makes up for it. Trust me, I'm not saying that just because it's what you're supposed to say. I've really liked guys who were rather unattractive just because they had great personalities. Charismatic and all that.

    And he's got to be completely obsessed with me. In a non-stalker way, preferably.

    I'm open minded enough to accept a great many things in a relationship, but the one thing I will not abide is dishonesty.

    If a guy has issues, addictions, problems, fetishes, what have you, if he wants to have an open relationship, whatever... I need him to be open and forthright about it.  I can cope with and work with any truth, but I can't stand the sneaking around behind my back, keeping secrets, telling lies, game playing, and all the rest of the garbage that comes with dishonesty.
