Some Helpful Suggestions for the Modern Man


In one of our previous posts, we talked a bit about the qualities that men look for in women. This month, we decided to take a look at the other side of the equation and

see what women want in a man. We've all seen Hollywood films like What Women Want, where the male protagonist gains the ability to read the minds of women in order to fulfill their desires, but men in real life are not so lucky. Considering the complicated female psyche, what women want in a man is rife with complexities. After many years of putting men and women together, the matchmaking team at Kelleher International has learned a lot about what both sexes want in each other. Here's a little cheat sheet of the top 10 women's desires.

10.) Confidence, confidence and more confidence

Women love confident men. We're not talking about silly bravado, arrogance or dominance. We mean the "I can handle it" attitude. Men who are not afraid to be themselves and take on any challenge are especially appealing to the modern woman.

9.) Responsibility

Women do not want a man who refuses to hold himself accountable for his own actions. Be confident in your decisions and take responsibility for the consequences.

8.) Humor

You do not have to be a stand-up comedian to win a woman's heart - just try to make her laugh and always offer a fun and enjoyable experience when you are in her presence.

7.) Looks

A good looking guy is always at a natural advantage because women love handsome men. However, even the best-looking man is unattractive if he neglects personal hygiene. Clean yourself up! You may not think you're male model material, but if you present yourself properly, she'll think you are the most handsome man in the world.

6.) Loyalty

Be faithful and trustworthy. Always be honest with her. Women hate liars and cheaters above almost all else.

5.) Intelligence

Keep her mind stimulated with interesting conversation and a good sense of humor. Women are generally very communicative, so they will appreciate someone that they can communicate well with.

4.) Affection

Be romantic - there is no such thing as too much affection. Women like to be held, hugged, kissed and romanced. This is not the time to be hyper-masculine and pretend that you are uninterested into romantic gestures. These gestures are an incredibly vital form of communication.

3.) Attention

Women want a man who will be attentive, someone who listens and engages in conversation with them. They want a guy who notices when they cut their hair or who compliments their new dress. In other words, they want you to notice them.

2.) Ambition

Women want a man with a plan. Have a goal for the relationship, your life, and your career. Be a man of action who is always aspiring towards something bigger.

1.) Security

Finally, women want to know that they have a trusted partner who will always look after their best interests. This means that the man needs to be ready to protect his partner from physical, emotional and financial dangers, and who can provide for his family.
