Love is not enough, modern women want these three qualities in you: research

Any good relationship is built on some basic, down-to-earth qualities. In this article, we are going to learn what qualities women look for in men. What do women look for in a man? The answer, perhaps unsurprisingly, isn’t so straightforward. Generally speaking, men place more importance on beauty, while women value moral integrity. What women want in a man is faithfulness and dependability, a sense of humor, the ability to listen, and a sense of style.

Here are some qualities that a woman always wants in her partner:


No woman wants to be cheated on or ditched at the drop of a hat – this much is obvious. As women, attachment is a biological imperative, feeding into our maternal instincts. We need to feel assured that you are going to stick around for the long haul.


Socially, sexually and emotionally, this applies to every area of life. There is nothing better than a man who can be bold, take control and feels totally secure in his own skin. Combine this confidence with charisma and you are onto a winner.


No, this doesn’t mean that you have to be able to recount the Battle of Gettysburg from memory, but women look for a man who can hold a conversation at the very least. It’s also a major plus point if a man is socially intelligent. A trait usually more evident in women, this means being able to read a situation, pick up on the subtext and communicate accordingly.


For long relationships, women tend to prefer altruistic men who are kind and do good deeds. When it comes to the long term, all women want a man who will be kind to them and others. Women need men to show kindness, patience, understanding, empathy, and compassion.


This plays into the idea of drive and purpose. Women love a man who is totally his own, and doesn’t have to depend on other people. If you can’t survive as a one-some, you shouldn’t be in a relationship.
