According to Sheri L. Dew,
Neither man nor woman is perfect or complete without the other. Thus, no marriage or family, no ward or stake is likely to reach its full potential until husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, men and women work together in unity of purpose, respecting and relying upon each other’s strengths.
Women, as they say, are fragile, soft and emotional. Eleanor Roosevelt captures it this way:
A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Men often say that they don’t understand what women want from them but really, it’s not that difficult. There are some key qualities that women look for when they’re dating and it’s on these that they will judge whether you will make a good boyfriend. None of them are difficult and all men can do them even if it takes a bit of practice.
There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.
Every woman has different priorities, but when it comes to what makes a perfect partner, these ten (10) are some things on which most women agree.
This is the foremost and very important quality every woman looks for in a man. If you’re going on a date make sure you shower, brush your teeth and use some deodorant. Taking care of your look, your home and even your car if she’s going to ride in it are all marks of respect which women value
Most men view Sensitivity as weakness and makes them feel vulnerable. It’s not true! You don’t need to wear your heart on your sleeve all the time but it’s important that you let her see your sensitive side even if you never let anyone else see it.
It doesn’t matter how liberated or feminist a woman is, all she wants is to be treated with respect. That means caring about her feelings, supporting her and not messing her about.
Women generally respect men who have values, beliefs, principals and who will stand up for what they believe in. Men are often physically stronger but even if they aren’t women want to know a man will stand up for her, protect her and be on her side when she needs it.
Generally, women love to talk! It’s in their nature. It has been claimed that women speak about 20,000 words a day – 13,000 more than the average man. Women want a man who’ll listen to them without rolling their eyes or tuning out. Show the woman in your life you care by really paying her some attention rather than just lapping up the attention she gives you.
We have a lot of guys out there who are players and women are looking for someone who they can trust. Your honesty can be demonstrated in small ways like being on time, doing what you say you are going to do and telling her the truth about how you feel.
Sense of Humour
Find pleasure in making her laugh, helping her to see the lighter side of life and not only will it make you feel good about yourself but she’ll come to see you as someone who could be a real friend as well as a partner.
No woman wants to be with a man who doesn’t find her attractive. She needs to know it is her you desire rather than just sex. Show this through affection, compliments and don’t assume she should know, tell her.
Doing those little jobs without being nagged; sending a message just to let her know you’re thinking of her or remembering something important.
While some women may prefer the emotionally unavailable type, genuine ones who are looking for a boyfriend want someone who shows that they have the ability to commit. Be on time for dates; make arrangements and stick to them, don’t be flaky when it comes to your feelings about her. Consistency and stability in your work, friendships and family situation are all great indicators that you are someone she can rely on.
