What Do Women Want From Their Man?
 
Thread title says it all, what do women want from their man?

What do you think are the requirements from a man when in a relationship?

I think obvious ones are commitment?
Honesty?

What else?

Well, first off, I think they want to be understood as individuals rather than treated like a generic category. The answer's going to be different for each woman, and the best way to find out is to ask her, rather than asking us.

I think a woman wants someone to think of a relationship as something that doesn't have "requirements." You're in a relationship because you are happier together than apart, you want to have a partnership, and you care about each other's feelings. That's what a relationship is, not some contractual obligation with "requirements."

Relationships are like friendships, they come in all kind of varieties. You might think beforehand that you value this or that trait but gee, you don't fall in love because somebody matches your notion of perfection. Perhaps you thought that you want to be together who is very smart and spends a lot of time with you and then you fall in love with somebody who is not that bright and you see each other not that often and it still works out.
Relationships and life in general is not as simple as going over a checklist or thinking about what you want. Very often we don't know what we really want.

^ Generalizing much, guys? I don't want anyone reading my mind. However, I do remember a marriage counselor once pointing out to my then-husband that he was expecting me to be a mind reader. So it's apparently not just (some) women. ;)

A means of supporting themselves, a measure of basic decency and honesty, a willingness to listen and a criminal record that doesn't involve a plate of cookies and Chris Hansen.

There are endless comedy posts online giving the simple differences. You might try them and find the most satisfying one that meets your desired view. It would be easier and more entertaining than just wading through stuff here. Otherwise, start with yourself, what are you offering, would you date someone who acts like you toward you? Be honest. After that, every one of those women is an individual, some you'll like, some you won't, and some you can do without. All have their own interests. Good luck.

Well, they want a guy who will do the dishes and the laundry, mow the lawn, and wash the car. They'd really like it if he'd change the litterbox/clean up after the dog. Last, they'd be really happy if his cooking skills were developed slightly beyond grilling a ribeye to death.

I think.

I do know that the last part is also something Timby wants in a woman.

Different women want different things, so there is no one true answer. But there's also the question of what a person NEEDS. No one person can fulfill all of another's needs. And not all of one's need WILL be fulfilled. Can't have everything, right?

Most people don't bother to think about what they need, or they have an idea but its not clearly defined. The more one knows what they need, the better chance they have of a successful relationship.

I wanted someone taller than me (easy, since I'm only 5' 1"), not a fanatic about anything (sports, politics, religion, etc), smarter than me (at least in some ways), have a good heart and the typical things.

When asked what I love most about Hubby, I answer that it's that he tries to do what's right, even if he doesn't benefit, even if it costs him sometimes. He says that what he loves most about me is that I have a good heart.

What did I need in a man? Someone who would accept me despite me. Accept that I was giving all of me to him, and that he'd treasure it. What worked well was that what Hubby needed was someone who was his--ALL his, give all to him and accept him, who put him first and love him completely. This does not mean submissive. None of this precludes each of us improving ourselves, as long as our basic selves remain the same.

Perhaps it is just my wife that expects her man to read her mind, but I doubt it.

What ever you do, never mention to your partner or potential partner you're on this board.... if she sees this thread, you're doomed to failure. ;)

She encouraged me to join this board; she used to be a MOD here.
