If you think men love women just because they look beautiful then you are wrong.
Good looks are a huge benefit for a girl trying to catch a man’s attention. But it’s not enough to make him fall in love and dream about building a long and happy relationship.
While great relationships start with mutual attraction, in the long run, the relationship is destined to fail if the couple lacks compatibility. Curious to know what men truly look for when they want to enter a committed relationship? Here is a list of traits that are far more important than beauty.
1. Independence and ambition
Women who have their own identity and love being themselves are definite must for guys. Guys would love to be with a girl who he is confident, intelligent and know her goals in life. If her goals are aligned with their boyfriend then it’s an icing on the cake.
A good boyfriend strives to make his Significant Other feel special, but there is nothing sexier than a woman who understands her own worth. Men might like a girl with a pretty face and nice figure, but if she is in need of constant reassurances that they are attractive or cannot accept a compliment, it will eventually wear a guy down and he will move on to a woman who is happy with who she is.
3. A Sense of Humor
A woman might be drop-dead gorgeous, but she will never win a place in a man’s heart unless she has the ability to make him laugh. A great sense of humor is the perfect way to alleviate stress and allows the couple to bond. A witty joke or an occasional sneaky, light-hearted prank will score a woman big time points with her man.
4. Woman Who Is Caring, Honest And Loving Nature
Guys would admit that they love a woman who is honest and caring. Showcase your love towards him, surprise him, care for him when his sick, as surely this quality is what every guy search in women as back in mind they would like a women who would care for him and his family in best way.
Of course men would add up more points on how so many things they consider as they choose their lady love.
5. A listening spirit
Most men appreciate women who are able to just listen – no “ I told you so” lines, no lectures, tips or comments regarding what you would do if you were in his place. You know… just sitting, listening (and I mean REALLY listening)… just showing that you care.
Oh, and that involves being patient as well, understanding that most men need to “process” their problems before they can talk about them and learn to say, “Okay, baby, whenever you want to talk about it – I’m here for you”.
Men like to talk, and they are looking for someone to share with. Well, it is not just talking, but they seek an intelligent conversation with you. You need to be able to understand current events and sustain a meaningful conversation. This comes into play when you meet with his friends or family too. Men are also drawn to women who can grasp new concepts.
7. A Willingness to Accept His Flaws
One of the keys to a healthy relationship is understanding that your partner is not perfect.
This is why men want women who are not overly critical and who don’t seek to change them. If a woman can love him for his goofy fashion sense or his eccentric personality, they are on their way to relationship success.
8. A Drama-free Personality
Life is like a roller coaster. Some days will be good and others will be completely rotten. However, it is unnecessary for every little problem to explode into a major conflict. Women who have the right perspective and do not make mountains out of molehills will find it far easier to win their man over.
