What’s the one question all men want to ask? Any guesses? It’s what women want! Men are simple creatures. When we find a woman attractive, we want to meet them, strike up a conversation, take them out on a date, make them laugh, woo them and hopefully get into a meaningful relationship.
Yeah…contrary to popular belief that’s what most men want. But women, on the other hand, are a lot more complicated.
Being smart, nice or attractive is not enough for them. Women have a complete list of prioritized criteria that men need to meet in order to date them. So the right question all men need to ask is not what she wants, but what she doesn’t!
What do women want from men?
“Women are made to be loved, not understood.” – Oscar Wilde
I am no expert on women so I can’t tell you exactly what women want. However, I may be able to enlighten you a bit. Like men, every woman is different and all of them have unique personalities, thoughts, perceptions, needs and wants. But there are certain things that are common across the board. No, women don’t want expensive gifts. They don’t want your money either.
What they want is for you to respect them. They want you to give them your time, your loyalty, your love, your honesty, and your effort.
Women want us to understand that even though they may be successful, secure, assertive, strong and thriving, they want their men to lead them emotionally. They want us to be there to share their achievements and failures, their happiness and disappointments. They don’t need our love to grow. They want our love, our respect as they take one bold step ahead after another. Women are emotional creatures. And that’s what makes them complicated to men. Women expect men to step up.
But men being men, we usually end up leaving our girlfriends confused and frustrated by doing silly things we believe are ‘right’ that can help us keep their attention. However, the only thing we do is push them away.
Do we make women hate us?
“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.” – Joseph Conrad
Being in a relationship with the woman you love can be one of the most beautiful experiences in life. When we’re in love, we look at the world from rose-tinted glasses and everything around us looks amazing and pleasing. As we become more comfortable with our partner, they become a part of our lives and we make our best efforts to create a healthy relationship. We do things that we believe she would like, but more often than not we end up doing things she hates. Despite our best efforts, most of the things we do are usually found deplorable by women.
Most of the time, the things we say and do will strike a nerve in our girlfriend, wife or even a female friend. As they may not express their discomfort right away to avoid unnecessary arguments or simply because they know we mean well, we will keep doing the same thing repeatedly. And eventually, one day they are going to snap leading to a lot of arguments and toxicity in the relationship. And this will create a prominent crack in the relationship that will be hard to repair. This is why it is crucial that you know what are the things you do that irk and irritate her.
Things you do that she hates
“Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won’t be an end.”
– Anthony Robbins
It’s high time that you stop aggravating the woman you love and understand what women want and don’t want.
Here are the things you do that women hate, even though you think they like it.
1. Being overly attached
An unhealthy attachment to your partner can make your relationship toxic sooner than you can expect. Being too loving and affectionate to your girlfriend can put her off and push her away. Too much PDA or getting too handsy can make her feel uncomfortable as well. Instead of assuming that she likes to be adored and smothered, emotionally and physically, spend more time with your girl and try to understand her love style. Make her feel comfortable around you instead of making her feel smothered. Take things slow and observe how she reacts to you getting closer. If she is comfortable and welcoming, then you have her permission to show your affection. If she is visibly uncomfortable or turns away, then you need to back off. It’s your responsibility to make her feel happy about the relationship. Take it as slow as she wants or you might lose her forever. Consent matters.
