What Men Really Want In A Woman

Aug 4, 2008
Most men find women rather perplexing. Rarely do you find a man who really knows what heas searching for and what he thinks a woman can offer him. Perhaps this can be more easily figured out by answering the question, aWhat type of woman is the typical man looking for?a

When asked this question, most men try to answer with some clichA, but some actually answer very thoughtfully. When it comes down to it, however, most men want the same things, even though the package may change a little to fit individual tastes.

For desirable attributes in a prospective mate, chemistry tops the list for a lot of guys. Although chemistry is hard to actually define, most men will tell you that they know it when they feel it. The search for the perfect level, however, has left many men unable to maintain a steady relationship for any length of time, since there might still be someone out there with whom they would have bigger or better chemistry with.

Dating sites across the internet, like eHarmony and FriendFinder have tried to make finding the chemistry a focal point of their recruiting efforts, and work to connect men and women based on some perceived chemistry based on similarities in tastes and preferences. While this works on some level, it is not always effective in determining whether two people are good together or not, and can in fact have the opposite effect of bringing two incompatible people together.

So, What are men really looking for in a woman? The biggest trait many men seek is confidence, but not cockiness. Many women are very confident in their beauty, brains, and other traits, some to the point that they believe all men will melt over them. In reality, many men are turned off by a woman who believes in her own traits too much to the point that it becomes a put off for a man.

Although men do like a confident woman, they also want one with a brain. Men are finally figuring out that a pretty face cannot substitute for a lack of intelligence. Only a woman with beauty and brains is really able to keep a relationship flourishing instead of floundering.

It must be said that men who are trying to figure out what they want in a woman always bring up the fact that she should be a good lover. That means many men are looking for women who have had many experiences that have helped them grow in this area. Older women, therefore, are more highly sought after than had previously been the case, underscoring the fact that being drop dead gorgeous is not necessarily a prerequisite to the modern man.

While there are other points that could answer the question concerning what men are really looking for in a woman, the ultimate conclusion is that men want women who act as independent, fun loving, and self confident creatures. Women who can stand up and be confident in themselves in a relationship and on a date are those women that men are looking for in this day and age.
