In the world of dating, people often look for different things to suit their tastes. And while everyone knows what they want in a mate or lifetime partner, we often miss out on great people because we are looking for the wrong things. The things many of us want can be too superficial, or we may be a little too selective in the qualities we are seeking out.
The things every woman should look for in a man are the simple qualities that we may feel are basic but are truly important ones.
Here are a few things to look out for in a man:
1. He’s a gentleman.
A great guy needs to be polite, respectful, considerate, and attentive to a woman’s needs. This includes classic gentleman behavior such as pulling out a woman’s chair, walking on the car side of the street and taking her coat. I personally believe that if all men were gentlemen, we would live in a better world. Today, this is far from the truth, so guys who do have this quality stand out. It’s also worth noting that great guys never cross the line of being inappropriate.
2. He is straightforward:
He isn’t afraid to tell you “how it is”, and at first, this is a hard quality to come to terms with. A straightforward and honest man wants to really know what’s wrong because he wants to help. Unfortunately with this comes “tough love”, because you are going to hear things that you really don’t want to hear. But, in the long run its best to here it head on and deal with it.
3. He’s direct:
A great guy should look straight into your eyes when he’s talking to you, and to look and seem genuinely interested in what you have to say. He should have good diction, and engage in conversation with an active attitude. Any guy who isn’t direct is weak. You shouldn’t settle for weak.
