While doing laundry, I had a brief conversation with my neighbor, Gary, who said women don’t know what they want. I disagreed, telling him that women most certainly do know what they want. We are not that difficult to figure out and neither are men. The NAKED TRUTH about relationships is this: we are all looking for the same thing – to be loved. It truly is that simple. Sort of…
Women want the following:
Men who are committed. We want a man who is committed to us. This doesn’t always mean marriage, however, we need a partner who won’t bail at the slightest sign of…well, anything from incompatibility to a disagreement. A boyfriend (who asked me to marry him) once told me things weren’t going to work out because we didn’t watch the same television shows.
Men who are loyal. We want a man who wants to be with us and ONLY us. We don’t want to share our partners with anyone else. Man is a dog’s best friend; we want the man in our life to be ours.
Men who communicate. We want to talk to the man in our lives. We understand that women are better at communicating, so we don’t expect you to be masters at sharing your feelings. We want you to try. We want to know that you think we are wonderful. Tell us we are sexy, smart, capable, beautiful. You will be rewarded handsomely.
Men who respect us. A relationship needs to be built on a strong foundation. We want to know that you cherish us enough to respect us. Value us for who we are. Do not belittle, degrade, or hit us – EVER.
Men who love us. It really all comes down to this – we want to know that you love us, that your life is better because we are in it. All of us – men and women alike – want to know that we are loved. It doesn’t get any better than knowing the person you are with loves you truly, madly, deeply.
What do YOU want in a relationship?
