Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

what I am looking for in a man is:
honesty (including the ability to admit to his own weaknesses)
reliability
loyalty
intelligence (the sexiest body part of a man is in fact his brain, regardless of what the males of the species would like to believe)
and good manners (life with someone who slurps his soup or never closes the toilet door will very quickly become unbearable. Manners are there for a reason: to enable us to live together without killing each other).

I want a man who treats me as an equal, as a partner. I want to neither be treated with despise nor to be glorified. I want a shoulder to lean on and I expect my partner to come to me when he needs support, someone to talk with or a shoulder to cry on.

(and I want all of the above of a female partner, too.)

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

Can this really be answered? Different people will have different things they want from a partner. I think Rhubarbodendron is closest. Isn't that what males would want in female partners as well?

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

Honestly, speaking for just myself and nobody else? Yes. Most of what Rhubarbodendron listed are priorities for me in a long-term relationship.

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

No, it can't be answered as asked. Just asking the question indicates that someone is living in the wrong century. The best answer to the question "What do women want from their man?" is "The same thing men from from their woman, Gay men want from their man and Lesbians want from their woman."

Despite what lame stand-up comedians want you to believe, women don't have a shopping gene, they don't hate Science Fiction and comic books, they don't all want babies and they don't trade sex for intimacy. There is no "they." There are three-and-a-half billion individuals who happen to be women.

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

I will second (actually third) Rhubarb's list and I will add a good sense of humour. Laughter is an incredibly attractive quality!

And Shazam!, I make my own money, so that has never been a factor for me!

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

Probably not. If I didn't make my own money I wouldn't have been able to move out on my own. If I hadn't moved out I would not have left the very small town I grew up in. If I hadn't left that town I believe I would have stayed single (my choices there would have been very, very limited...and I always knew it was up to me to build the future for myself that I wanted).

So, I'm going to change that "probably not" into a firm "no"!

One that cooks well (within Kosher guidelines), financially responsible and a good lover. That's pretty much it.

Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

The thing with words like "honesty" is they have nothing to do with personality. Everyone wants honesty in a parent, a friend, a sibling and if it's not there it erodes even relationships you are theoretically stuck with for life.

I have no idea what my partner wants from her man, but apparently I have that. In plenty.

So, yay.

At this point I'd settle for an ETA.
