Men want to be treated in a way that doesn't diminish their egos or make them feel inadequate. They love to be praised and acknowledged for the things they do right. Above all, they like to be reminded that they are great guys who are well-loved and appreciated. Simply put, men care about the same things as women.
Nothing attracts more to a man than a woman with a high self-esteem. A confident woman is independent and can tackle any situation in her life. Even in the long run, the guy can depend on his partner and feel secured.
“A man will commit when he feels a deep connection with a woman that he doesn't feel with anyone else; when he finds a lover who is also his best friend that makes him feel special and unique,” Tripp says.
The Real Secret to Keeping Your Man (Matthew Hussey, Get The Guy)
What makes a man choose you?
There are certain qualities a man looks for in a woman to choose her as his partner. It includes compatibility, attraction, affection, kindness, and confidence. Besides these qualities, sharing values and a strong connection is also important.
You can assume a man is deeply in love with a woman once his initial attraction turns into attachment. Physical attraction, sexual compatibility, empathy, and emotional connection are key to making a man fall in love with a woman.
Men chase women that are confident and happy in themselves. Men will be a lot more attractive to women that exude confidence than those that don't. Be sure about yourself and stand up for yourself around this man and he will respect you for that.
Like women, men want a life partner who will be trustworthy, faithful and reliable. They want a wife who will stand by their side and, considering divorce rates, it's no surprise that dependability would continue to be attractive.
Guys love it when their partner is confident and bold. Take good care of yourself, and make an effort to look as good as you feel. Focus on the things that make you special, and emphasize those qualities. Tell him when you appreciate the things he does.
To make your man happy emotionally, you have to be attentive to his needs and to know when to give him space. To make your man happy sexually, you have to want to try new things and to be bold and adventurous. But the most important part is that you are feeling happy while you're pleasing your man.
He avoids conflicts and disagreements at all costs. Even a friendly verbal debate with a friend or his partner may make him anxious and uncomfortable. A weak man is usually a dumpee by his ex. Thus he is always fearful of being rejected by his partner.
Men need women who let them feel sexually open and who aren't afraid to be intimate or find pleasure. For both men and women, sex is a way to feel connected and deepen your bond. Men need to feel comfortable expressing their true sexual desires without thinking they'll be judged, shamed, or mocked for them.
They want a woman who has her own purpose other than being in a relationship. A great guy isn't intimidated by independence and success. What matters to a man is that a woman still has space in her life for a great relationship and is grounded and present when she's with him.
