It is a known fact that there are qualities men look for in women they want to marry, this will determine if they will commit to her or not. So if you, as a woman, if you are looking for a man who will commit to you, please read this post completely and try to develop some of the qualities that we are going to be discussing so as to increase your chances in the dating market and, more importantly, in the marriage market.
However, you have to understand that not all men will look for the same qualities in a woman. But, there are some common qualities that men look for (majority of men) in a serious relationship, and they include:
1. Physical attractiveness
Physical attractiveness is one of the most prevalent open-door qualities that men look for and notices in a woman, and don’t get me wrong, this might not be the most important quality that the man may be looking for, but he has to first find a woman attractive to even want to talk to her, much less want to date or marry her.
However, as I have already tried to explain, even though this is not the most important quality for all men, it is still a factor that many men consider. Men are attracted to women who they find aesthetically alluring, and this includes factors such as facial features, body type, and overall appearance.
As a woman, you must take care of your physical appearance if you are looking to attract a good man for serious relations, because the thing is that the man has to be attracted to you in the first place before he will even think of having a relationship with you, whether it is are frivolous or serious one.
2. Compatibility and shared values
Men, like anyone else, seek a woman who shares common interests, values, and life goals, because this trait can strengthen the bond in a relationship. They want to be with someone who has similar beliefs and priorities and with whom they can build a life.
Compatibility is so important that even if a man decides to start a relationship with a lady without properly understanding her values, they may end up breaking up in no time.
This will happen once he starts seeing things that do not go well with his beliefs about the woman and if she refuses to change. This can also happen both ways for the woman, too.
This doesn’t mean that men will not be attracted to or go into a relationship with a woman who doesn’t share in their vision, but they will make a conscious effort to make her see the vision they have and what role they want them to play in it.
3. Trustworthiness and Honesty
Trust is very much considered to be the cornerstone of any healthy relationship. Men typically value honesty and trustworthiness in a woman, because it will engender a sense of security and emotional intimacy.
They want to be relaxed and unbothered about things when they are dealing with a lady, so if a man finds a woman that is trustworthy due to certain things that she has done or certain encounters they have had with her, it builds a lot of attraction and makes them want to have her around more.
Men are attracted to women who are loyal. They want to be with someone who they can rely on, and who will always be there for them. Men like the idea that they can leave things to the care of their woman and that they will always act accordingly and not betray them. This is among the strong qualities that men look for in a woman.
This trait comes in handy when you think about a woman cheating on her man for frivolous things or just because they had a slight quarrel at home and boom, she goes out and cheats on the man just to spite him.
I know this is something that a lot of people, even many women, will not understand, but I can assure you that it happens all the time and some women are not ashamed to admit that they did it at one point in time.
So, having a woman who a man is assured is loyal, is a win for any man because he knows for sure that no matter the issues that they may be going through as a couple the woman will always be loyal to him.
5. Communication Skills
Effective communication is a very vital trait of a good relationship. Men often appreciate a woman who can openly express their thoughts and feelings and can also listen attentively. Men are attracted to women who can communicate effectively, both verbally and non-verbally.
This makes it easy for them to share ideas and reason around issues very easily and quickly, rather than a woman who always aspects a man to be a soothsayer and reads their man instead of them speaking their mind.
6. Emotional Intelligence
This is an ability that is displayed when someone is able to understand and manage their own emotions and that of others. Men might seek a woman who possesses this quality as it facilitates healthier conflict resolution and overall emotional well-being.
More so, men are attracted to women who are intelligent and interesting. They want to be with someone who can challenge them intellectually, and who they can have stimulating conversations with.
7. Respect and Supportiveness
Respect is one of the highest values that a woman can have that will drive a man crazy in love with her, it is mutual and engenders trust and appreciation.
Feeling respected and supported by their woman is essential for men in a serious relationship. Mutual respect and encouragement contribute to a strong bond. This is one of the most important qualities that men look for in a woman.
Life in itself is full of surprises and challenges. Men appreciate a woman who is adaptable and flexible, ready to face the uncertainties that come their way together. This ability to adapt to change fosters a stronger bond and makes the relationship more resilient.
As a woman, if you want to gain the love of a man that you have already encountered, the best thing you can do is show him respect and be supportive of him at all times.
Although beauty is the first thing that a man may notice first in a woman before meeting her.
After that, for a lasting emotion of attraction to be cemented, the woman much behave in a respectable manner to gain the man’s further approval. Or else she may just be classified as a “side chick” who is only entertained for “recreational use only”
8. Sense of Humor
A sense of humor is a great quality to have in a woman. Men are attracted to women who can make them laugh, and who can help them to see the lighter side of life. A good sense of humor can make a significant difference in a relationship. Being able to share laughter and find joy in each other’s company helps to build a positive and enjoyable dynamic.
As men go through the struggles of the day in their jobs and businesses, they enjoy the idea that they can come home to a fun-filled and happy home and not the opposite.
So, definitely, if a woman has a good sense of humor, it really goes a long way in making her more attractive for the man to want to be in a long-term relationship with her.
9. Empathy and Understanding
A partner who can empathize and understand their emotions and experiences is highly valued by men. It fosters a deeper connection and emotional support. When a woman displays empathy, it captures a man’s likeness, because it further proves that she is in her feminine nature and she can potentially be teachable.
Men desire a woman who they know can be empathetic in situations that demands genuine understanding such as one that involves: illness, financial challenges, and emotional trauma
10. Kindness and Compassion
Being kind towards others is an attractive quality every woman should have, just as showing empathy. When a woman displays or is seen treating others with kindness and showing compassion? It endears men to her quickly.
Men are attracted to women who exhibit the qualities of being kind and compassionate. Men want to be with someone who has a caring nature. Someone who exhibits a genuine concern for their well-being and happiness. And also who treats others with respect.
Being kind and compassionate, is a quality that displays the femininity of a woman, and can quickly attract a man to her. It doesn’t mean that men can not be compassionate.
However, it’s rather easy for men to be assertive and fierce in most cases. So when they notice a woman who can easily operate in that mode of kindness they are fascinated by it.
It’s one thing to expect a man to be kind and compassionate at all times, but it is also another thing to let the man live true to his masculine nature of being assertive.
It’s important to remember that each individual’s preferences and priorities vary, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. However, these qualities are not exclusive to men; they apply to people seeking meaningful relationships in general. Building a successful and lasting relationship involves finding someone with whom you share mutual respect, understanding, and genuine affection with.
