Five Traits Women Seek in Men

When it comes to dating and relationships, different types of men often have the same underlying question that plagues their mind and that is, “What do women want?” Despite the countless romcom flicks, impassioned works of literature, and numerous love songs crafted on the subject, a lot of men still remain clueless as to how women think and what drives their emotions.

While it’s true that each woman is different in many ways, there is an existing set of qualities that nearly all ladies, value or look for in a potential partner. So while you may never really know what goes on in their heads, you at least have an idea of which attributes are most important to them. In line with this, here are the five traits that single women seek in men while dating:

Faithfulness

In this fast-paced world, men and women are often in a hurry when it comes to finding the one. This is most evident in the prominence of online dating apps and sites that advertise finding your soulmate within a few taps on your mobile. However, the influx of these platforms has also made it easier to find more than one partner to date- often at the same time. This brings with it plenty of issues for modern couples since there is always the little voice at the back of each partner’s head that questions, “Is he/she actually faithful to me?”

Being physically and emotionally faithful is highly important for women, as it also reflects your commitment to the bond that you share. Ultimately, marriage is the end goal for plenty of women, and they really appreciate men who are not only committed to them but are expressive of it as well.

Strong Paternal Instincts

As aforementioned before, the goal in dating for most men and women is to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with. Following this logic, it normally includes beginning a new chapter together as a family. Due to this, expressing strong fatherly instincts is often a turn on for many women because it shows an interest and desire to become a parent in the near future.

Nonetheless, it does not necessarily have to do with having your own kid at this point or telling her upfront that you would like to have your own kids one day. This quality can be expressed in many ways, such as expressing concern for her sick nephew or talking about your favorite cousin that recently started preschool this year. Showing your concern or expressing patience when dealing with children sets you up as a good role model, especially for your future kids together.

Attentive Listener

Have you ever experienced being too busy with work or other responsibilities and finally meeting a close friend for the first time in several months? In this type of scenario, you will usually have a lot to say, with so many topics and things to talk about that you would like to share with them. However, when they’re on their mobile more than half the time, it can get quite frustrating on your end.

Not only is it rude, it shows their disinterest in what you have to say or share with them. Well, the same logic can be applied when it comes to dating as well. When she’s generally having a bad day, or simply bubbling with so many little things to tell you about what happened that day,  exude some interest in listening to what she’s telling you.

Lending your ears and paying attention to the little things helps her feel secure and important in your eyes, especially since you’re dedicating your time and energy in what she has to say. So the next time you meet at her favorite coffee shop, put down your phone and ask her, “How was your day?” she will truly appreciate it.

Selfless Intimacy

When it comes to spending time alone in the bedroom, women often expect their partners to perform well between the sheets. However, it’s not the size or endurance that matters most to them, but how selfless a man can be when pleasing them in bed. The fact of the matter is, most sexual content like adults films and bedroom paraphernalia has always been geared towards the interests and desires of men; and seldom focuses on the opposite gender.

In line with this, try paying more attention when in between the sheets to find out what she wants or enjoys. Be open-minded and communicative when it comes to kinks and fantasies, but also set clear boundaries for you both. When giving extra attention or effort, do so without expecting anything in return.

Pecuniary Independence

This attribute does not necessarily have to do with how much money you make, but relates to financial independence and success, more so. According to a recent survey conducted by Princeton, one in five women have reported that a man’s success in his career is a large determining factor in how attractive he is.  Having a good career shows that you have actual goals in life and have the talent and passion to follow your dreams.

Furthermore, having a high earning potential also means being financially independent as an adult. Knowing how to handle your expenses is important and shows you’re practical-minded too. This is a very good trait to possess, especially when the time comes when starting a family can be seen in your near future together as a couple.

Five Details Women Want to See in Your Online Dating Profile

Online dating has risen in popularity over the recent years and as a result, it has made it easier for both men and women to interact and meet each other. The reason behind its popularity is due to the fact that it has made dating so much easier, especially for busy individuals and those who prefer to get to know a person first before going on an actual date. Its prominence can be seen with the numerous dating apps and websites that are available for use across multiple platforms.

One of the most important aspects of attracting a potential date through these platforms is to create a good online profile. Sad to report, thousands of men fail to see the importance of creating a good profile that is actually worth reading and because of this, it diminishes the chances of them meeting a woman significantly. If you feel that your profile has not been getting a lot of love lately, it could be time to revamp your account. To help with this, discussed below are the five details women want to see in your profile.

Date1

Choose a good quality profile photo

Unfortunately, the vast majority of men who have accounts on dating websites or apps usually have photos that are of bad quality. What quantifies a bad photo? These are usually pictures that are either over or underexposed, blurry, are dimly lit, and those that have untidy and cluttered backgrounds. Keep in mind that when women come across your profile, the first thing they will usually look at is your photo.

With this in mind, make sure you look presentable and friendly in the shot. Ensure your face is clearly visible, without wearing sunglasses or hats that can obstruct their view. Also, refrain from using a group photo and making them scratch their heads in trying to figure out which one you are in the shot.

Date2

Steer clear of empty statements

You know that empty space that dating websites and apps usually give wherein you can write a short description, or basically anything relevant to you? It’s time to make clever use of that space. One of the key annoyances that women have when browsing through profiles is reading generic text on the description box, such as “Insert clever description here” or other similar statements. It not only shows you lack originality but also makes you appear insincere.

Instead, write something that reflects your personality or hobbies. For instance, you can quote your favorite book or poem if you’re a bookworm, type in a clever joke if you’re an aspiring comedian, or take the honest route and simply state what you’re looking for on the website. Coming up with something creative and sincere will help set your profile apart from the rest and will create a good impression on the ladies as well.

Date3

Be straightforward in what you want in a partner

We all have our own set of requirements in what we are looking for in a partner and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. As a matter of fact, being blunt about it is often the best way to go, as it helps set proper expectations and it ensures that you get what you are seeking, in the person you will hopefully spend the rest of your life with. Women usually have the same mindset in seeking a partner and it not only lets her know that you meet her qualifications, but that she meets yours as well.

Nonetheless, make sure you specify when stating these details and avoid words that are too broad, such as smart or kind. For instance, using online dating platforms means you’re going to meet women from different parts of the world, possibly from Asia or Europe. Considering this possibility, state in your profile whether you are willing to commit to a long distance relationship or not.

Date4

List any sociable hobbies you enjoy

When a woman is going to scrutinize your profile, she will look through your photographs and read your hobbies, to see what you enjoy doing and get a better feel of what you’re like in person. She is going to imagine what it would be like to spend time with you in real life, and looking at these details helps complete the picture in her mind.

Although listing hobbies such as reading books or playing console games are not bad and might even be something you have in common with her, it gives the impression that she’ll hardly get to see you. Instead, state hobbies that are or can be sociable. For example, you might enjoy playing the guitar and singing during the weekend open mic sessions at your favorite pub, or enjoy playing basketball after a stressful day at work.

Date5

Focus on your positive attributes

When you view a woman’s profile and notice her state more negative traits than positive ones, would you feel encouraged to make contact? As much as possible, you want to be with a lady that is positive and life-affirming, not someone that looks down at herself in a constantly negative light. On the other hand, the same logic can be applied to you as well.

When listing your traits, be sure to focus more on the positive qualities that you have. It could be something as simple as being neat, dependable, and having a good sense of humor. These are qualities that women generally look for in men. Moreover, avoid being self-depreciative, as it gives the impression of being insecure, but don’t overdo it to the point of appearing cocky either.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

These are just five basic details that women would love to see on your online dating profile. While it is always best to write or post certain things about yourself that would impress the ladies, it’s more important, to be honest, and sincere. In doing so, you attract the same qualities in the women that respond to your profile too.
