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 more things to look out for in a man:
13. He learns from his mistakes.
By default, we humans are all imperfect creatures and make more mistakes than we will ever admit. Given that, the best quality a man can possess is the ability to say “I was wrong” and to move forward to fix it. The greatest minds in the world and the most successful entrepreneurs have experienced failure and defeat, but instead of hiding from it, they openly embrace it. A good man will admit he is wrong, a great man will admit he is wrong and will become a better person because of it.
14. He is flexible.
Being able to balance individual, relationship, and family needs, as well as careers and friendships requires not only a strong sense of self, but also the flexibility to understand, relate to and incorporate the ideas and needs of others. Flexibility is required to handle the inevitable differences that arise between people who grew up in different families, have some different norms and habits, and who may, at various times during the course of the marriage, be required to deal with difficult life circumstances.
15. He shares same values.
The most important quality a woman should look for in a man before getting serious with him is shared values. While it is always nice for potential partners to be able to teach one another new hobbies, the core beliefs of a couple need to be similar. Marriage has ups and downs and during those difficult times, basic values in life is one of the things that keeps a couple grounded.
