What Men Really Want


For the majority of women, it is easy to get a guy but when it comes to keeping him and his interest is a different story. From single women to married women, all women want to know how to keep a man interested in them.

Here’s a list of things that men really want revealed by Jonathan and his six male friends discussions.

Beauty catches the eye but becomes less important with time.

Once a man knows your beautiful, you don’t have to focus on your physical appearance everyday but instead focus on other areas of the relationship that men actually care about. If your husband wants a “quickie” before work it’s ok to lose time putting on extra make up or not curling your hair and putting it in a ponytail. He’s going to work and could care less about your made up face.

Be more than a partner, be his friend.

A woman needs to be “cool”. What I mean by that is someone he can actually communicate with and enjoy her company. She has to be a nice change up from hanging with the boys. If a man is watching sports, it’s ok to pretend your watching even if your not interested. A “cool” woman thoughtfully gives space, takes care of her man as his mother would but does NOT try to boss him like his mother or any mother does.


Being able to manage money is sexy. Men like a woman that makes good financial decisions and is capable of taking care of herself. A confident man likes to take care of a woman but we don’t like to be her only resource. We are looking for someone to help bring us up, not bring us down financially.

Boost his Ego

Know when to be “girly” and when to be “womanly”. The girly side is depending on him to do manly things such as checking the tire or anything that a dad would do. A man likes to feel needed and once he checks your tire, make him feel admired. Constantly compliment your man and make him feel stronger, smarter, and better looking than he actually is. The womanly side is not being bossy but noticing little things that he may forget such as the laundry or including vegetables in his meal. A true woman knows to put him in line when needed and to put it on him when needed.

A Good Sexual Appetite

A good appetite doesn’t mean that your actually hungry but if the food looks and smells good your willing to take a small serving of it. If your husband has a appetite, even if your not hungry, be willing to feed his needs. It’s ok to say no sometimes but don’t let one or two nights turn into a week. The bible says for husbands and wives, (1 Corinthians 7:5) “Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” Remember, for every one or two no’s, be willing to bring your “A-game” later.

Be Mysterious 

Most men like a challenge and figuring things out. Be the biggest fish in the pond, hard to reel in. Be a challenge, don’t reveal too much about you verbally and be selective in revealing your physical assets. A mysterious woman has a depthness about her and is more than just good looks. She has many great qualities about her but the only way to experience that is by spending quality time with her and giving her a reason to open up to you. Make him buy the book, if you reveal everything on the cover, he’ll have no reason to read it. Mystery adds suspense and surprise to any relationship and will keep him intrigued.

Many women have anger and resentment toward men because they don’t know what men really want. All men are different, find out what your man likes and succeed in it. Boys don’t know what they want but a real man knows what he wants in a woman and knows how to appreciate a good woman!

    I really liked this one! With me being single, the being the fish in the pond that’s hard to reel in is what I related to the most. Now-a-days many girls don’t leave much for the imagination; therefore, causing a guy not to approach her with respect because he thinks she doesn’t have any self-respect. And being mentally attractive is also as important, if not more important as their physical attributes. I think this one topped them all!

      A good man will appreciate a good woman and will respect her. A good woman will demand respect because she will earn it. The path to misery is littered with women and men who fail to earn respect. The road of happiness is occupied by strong men and women who see themselves as God sees them and are delighted by order and intelligence and wisdom.

        Yes, respect is very important in a relationship. The purpose of this article is to give insights on the way a lot of men think. Before anyone even begins a relationship, we hope that they understand the importance of respect.
