Lies We Have Been Told About What Men Want
There have been many lies told about what men want in a relationship and what they are looking for in a wife. Many women generally go about asking herself: How do I make him think I don’t like him so that he wants me? How do I act more “chill” like his friend, so that he enjoys hanging out with me? Bury all these lies and embrace the truth.
Lie #1: Men Want A Women Who Is Casual
Maybe this was true when we were in high school or college. A friends-with-benefits situation can work when you are in those years of your life and everyone can experiment with relationships as they grow up. But there will be time when you will need to snap into reality. Grown and mature men want feminine women. Men fall in love when they feel that a certain woman pushes them to be a better man. They like to be spoiled. And the best way to do this is to be a classy, elegant, confident lady who doesn’t go hanging out and making out a “no strings attached” way.
Lie #2: Men Don’t Want Emotional Women
What we have known is that it’s a big turn off for men when a woman gets emotional. What men want is to feel like they can hear you, understand you and then help you to feel better. However, men don’t hate emotional women, they just hate when a woman does not communicate her feelings in a simple, direct way. When a man can soothe a woman’s feelings, he feels on top of the world. But when he is overwhelmed by tears and screaming, it probably makes him feel like a failure and in usual cases, withdraws.
Lie #3: Men love how women are mysterious.
Yes, one of the biggest misinterpretations of the dating world. No one wants to be left wondering who you really are and what you’re actually doing when you elusively say you’re “just busy.” You can’t keep a man interested by keeping him feeling uncertain. It will in no case, lead to love. The only mystery men want to be caught up in is the mystery of your femininity. Men love how foreign we can seem: all those beauty products, so much empathy and softness, how we express our vulnerability with such ease, our empathy and so on.
Lie #4: Men Don’t Appreciate Smart, Funny Women
We have heard all kinds of assumptions what men want. This is one of the several. There is a time and a place for certain types of jokes. All men want is to feel emotionally safe with a woman and have a good time with her. If your sense of humor puts him on the defensive, then he’s not going to appreciate your humor. If the jokes are more spiteful than goofy, you might want to step back and take a look at yourself.
Lie #5: Men Only Want What They Can’t Have
A mature, commitment-friendly man who has been looking for a wife and wants to start a family isn’t interested in playing games. Men who only want what they can’t have are unaccountable boys. Men want to know their women more and hate chasing your skirt. If you respect yourself and are polite and kind enough to demand only his best behavior, a great man will scramble to please you and will work hard to take you off the market.
