Ever wonder what men want from a girlfriend? You can create your own relationship success by looking for the right traits in a woman.
1. She Makes You Want to Be a Better Man
Any man who has a great girlfriend or wife will tell you that she makes him want to be a better man. She doesn’t have to say or do anything; it is just that way.
2. She Loves You
If you have found a woman who loves you for who you really are and not who you pretend or try to be sometimes, you should definitely hang on to her. Of course, everyone has their slightly annoying habits that their mate has to contend with, but if she really loves you, she’ll be able to cope with these.
3. She Gets Along Well With Your Friends and Family
A great girlfriend will make an effort to get to know your people. She will help your parents out at Thanksgiving, try to understand your brother’s twisted sense of humor, and want to get to know your friends.
Also, your friends won’t roll their eyes when you mention that she will be joining you guys when she gets off work — she is one of the crowd.
4. She Doesn’t Nag Without a Good Reason
There isn’t a man who was convinced to change his behavior because of his girlfriend’s nagging. A great girlfriend knows this and chooses her battles wisely. She knows when to get upset and when to let it slide.
5. She Lets You Be a Man
A good girlfriend lets you be a man in all your glory. She understands that men and women are different and should allow you to be yourself.
6. She Respects You
This is a big one. A great girlfriend will keep disagreements private rather than taking you down in public. She will make an effort to see things from your point of view (provided you do the same for her). The key here is that the respect is mutual — it’s very hard for one of you to respect the other while feeling disrespected.
7. She Is Sexual
A great girlfriend has to be sexually compatible with you. For example, if you are into S&M and she is the “fluffy lingerie” type, then there is a problem. The two of you have to be on the same page
8. She Is Intelligent
A woman who can meet you at an intellectual level is a total turn-on. An intelligent woman will constantly surprise you and keep you on your toes. She won’t let you get bored or complacent.
9. She Is Independent
No one gets into a relationship to be a babysitter. Independence is key to a happy relationship, for both the man and the woman. You’ll find you’re still getting to know her long after you’ve gotten serious if she has a host of interests and commitments outside of your relationship.
