Understanding What Guys Are Looking For

Sep 9, 2008
We hear a lot about how men just don't understand women, but men are just as mysterious to women as women are to men. The problem for women is that they think they know what a man wants and so they go about getting a man in that way, only to find the whole plan backfires.

Many women think that men want the most beautiful girl in the crowd, but this is not necessarily true! When you learn what a guy looks for in a girl suddenly you will find that men are a lot less complicated than you originally thought.

What a Man Wants

Most women think that a man wants a girl that looks good first and foremost, but this is not necessarily true. While looks are important, a man also wants a woman that he would be comfortable bringing not only around his friends, but about his family as well. Your looks are just a bonus!

Even if a man is initially attracted to you because of your looks, you will find that he won't stick around for long if your personality has no substance. If a guy shows interest in you, don't focus on looking good all the time, instead focus on letting him know who you are. This will end up working out much better for you 99% of the time because the guy will feel like he has won the lottery by meeting a girl who is not only attractive but also has a great personality!

A man likes a women who takes care of herself. This doesn't mean a women who is obsessed with the way she looks and always complains about being fat. What this means is that a guy likes a woman who appears to take good care of her body and takes pride in her appearance. This doesn't mean that he won't think you're sexy in your pajamas, it just means he wants to know that you care enough about yourself to present yourself well.

A guy who is looking for a serious relationship is looking for a girl who wants to have fun, but not one that cannot be serious. Many women think that they have to take on a party girl persona to get and keep the guy, but this isn't the case at all. Sure, a guy likes a girl who can party, but he also likes a girl who can just stay home and hang out with him, too!

Most men like a girl who is selfless enough to listen to him, too. Women have a tendency to talk about themselves non-stop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but make sure that you take a pause to ask him questions, listen to his answers, and engage him in conversation about himself or his experiences. This will go along way in his developing an affection for you.
