Guys, do you know what women are looking for in a husband? If you don’t, it might be the reason you’re still looking for that special someone.
It’s true that you – like many other males – may think you’re a bit special. You might think you have a lot to offer a woman, such as rugged good looks and a winning sense of humour.
But, despite these obvious qualities, you might also be wondering why you’ve still not been able to meet a woman you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with.
Listed below are nine qualities ladies look out for in a man they want to marry.
Sense of Humour: You probably already knew this one. Women don’t want to marry the sullen type who not only doesn’t tell them any jokes, but who also takes things way too seriously. Banter and light relief is essential if you’re to spend the rest of your lives together. There will be downs, so let your humour bring back the ups.
Being Responsible With Finances: A man’s financial potential is not necessarily the be-all and end-all, and according to sociologists women look for this after more intangible things, such as love and kindness. But a lot of women certainly prefer it if a man is on a sound financial footing, and has a secure job.
Romantic: This one might go without saying, but it’s remarkable how many men insist that they’re “not romantic.” If you want to meet the woman of your dreams, you’re probably going to have to learn how to romance her. Romance isn’t dead.
Willingness To Change: Stubbornness and resistance to change is a major turn-off. If a man refuse to change anything about his personality, behaviour or habits, a woman is hardly going to want to marry him.
Ambition: Remember when you were in your early twenties and spent your days killing zombies on video games, while fending off your mom who kept telling you to look for a job? You can’t really do that anymore if you want to find an awesome wife. She wants you to have a bit of get-go about you. She wants you to have some ambition and industry.
Openness: Nobody likes to be kept in the dark about things, but women especially don’t want to be kept in their dark by a prospective husband. Don’t be a closed book. Be open. Share your worries, thoughts and dreams with your partner. She’ll appreciate your honesty and vulnerability.
Likeable: Not everyone is inherently likeable. But it would certainly help you to be likeable if you’re looking for a wife, as this is something that women love. Like-ability can convince people to do lots of things for us. It can help us to close a sale, get someone on board with a project – and it can even make people fall in love with us.
Motivated: Are you the lazy, unmotivated type who can’t get out of bed before noon? You might have made a great boyfriend when you were 16, but such a way of life won’t help you now as you look for a wife. Women look for guys who are motivated and driven to succeed. They want you to have passion, goals and dreams.
Sociability: Sociability isn’t a deal-breaker, as some women prefer to stay at home than go out with friends. But for women who are social themselves, their husband needs to be equally social.
