If you are a woman looking for a man to share your life with then on occasion you may have wondered what men want in a woman. The answer is that ultimately men like women who are interesting. What men want in a woman is someone who they feel has some interesting depth to them beyond any good looks they may have. Good looks can help attract a man in the first place, but they won’t keep him around for the long term. There are many different traits that can make a woman interesting to a man and interesting in general, but there are five in particular that can make a woman irresistible to the right man and they all start with the letter ‘I’.
Men like a woman who is her own person. They like a woman who stands out from the crowd and who has her own interests, and her own drives and motivations. They like a woman who has her own strange little quirks, her own way of doing things, and her own individual personality. A woman who tries too much to ascribe to generic cookie-cutter ideals of being what every man wants will not hold a man’s attention for long, as she is basically just making herself appear bland and uninteresting.
Men like women who are intelligent and thoughtful. They like women who reason things out and think them through, rather than acting or reacting blindly without any forethought. The woman doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist, but she should be someone who can apply some intelligence and common sense to a situation. A woman who simply parrots what everyone else is saying without considering the logic in it, or who blindly reacts to situations without putting things into perspective is someone who the average man will consider to be more trouble than they are worth.
While there are times when a man may like to be the focal point of a woman’s attention, they also like knowing that the woman has her own life going on apart from them. Men often like to be the problem solvers in a relationship, but they don’t want to have to solve every problem that a woman has and they don’t want to have a woman depending on them to make every decision for them. The relationship between a man and a woman should be a partnership of equals who each have their own lives going on, but who have chosen to share those lives.
Men often like to be the one take the initiative in certain situations, but they also like women who can come up with their own plans and put them forward. They like women who aren’t afraid to initiate action and suggest things to do and ways to go about solving problems. If a woman is always waiting for the man to initiate things then he will start to think that he is doing all the work in the relationship and may begin to resent it.
Men find women with their own intense interests and passions interesting. Women with hobbies they enjoy and get involved in tend to be women with some interesting depth to them. Even if a man doesn’t share a woman’s specific interests he will generally enjoy the fact that the woman is intensely interested in her hobby, and it will give them something to talk about.
What men want in a woman is basically the same thing as what women want in a man – someone who interests them. For a woman to be interesting to a man that woman first needs to be an interesting person herself. The best way to achieve that is for the woman to be her own intelligent, independent, and individual person with her own interests and passions. So, don’t be afraid to be your own person, with your own individual quirks and passionate interests.
