While we know that in this day and age looks are important, it’s good to know that there are men out there who care about more than just looks. While it’s true that your looks are the first thing people see, your words, actions and character traits are what makes men fall in love with you. Let’s talk about 9 things guys like in women more than good looks.
1. A Good Listener
There’s a stereotype that women talk a lot, but men talk even more. So they appreciate a good listener. I’m not saying you should laugh at their every joke and constantly agree with them, but in those rare moments when your guy is sharing some feelings and having a profound conversation, they will really appreciate a girl who’s a good listener.
Being a great planner is always a good thing. You’ll never be late, always know what you’re wearing to that special event, and your friends will forever be impressed with your bullet journaling skills. However, being spontaneous once in awhile has it’s advantages. So next time your boyfriend suggests a weekend getaway – take him up on his offer. You’ll have the time of your life
3. A Good Cook
A way to a man’s heart lies through his stomach. While that’s true, being a chef is not easy, especially in our modern day life, when everyone has a job and no time to cook. The good news is that guys don’t really care about fancy cuisine. If you can make a killer grilled cheese sandwich they’ll be happy. If you can cook a couple of easy tasty meals – you’re golden.
4. Food Lover
As women, we know that staying in shape is not easy. We constantly have to think about what we eat, because, unlike men we can’t just shovel a mountain of burgers into our mouth and expect to look the same the next day. However, constant dieting isn’t great for you either. No one likes people who stand in the supermarket for ages reading all the labels or those freaks who try to count the calories in the restaurant. So if you’re one of those – relax a bit. Food is one of the simpler pleasures in life and you should enjoy it.
5. A Great Sense Of Humor
Having a sense of humor will always help you out in life. In a relationship – it’s a must for both men and women. Being able to laugh everything of and crack jokes with your boyfriend is one of the best pastimes in the world. At least in my humble opinion.
The times are changing, finally. Most men no longer look for someone they have to provide and take care of. They can finally appreciate a strong independent women. So if that sounds like you – congrats. You’re doing everything right.
This goes hand in hand with the previous statement. Being ambitious is a great quality. Family values are still important in today’s society, but we’re no longer expected to just drop everything and become a housewife with 3 kids. You can have a career and a family, so pursue your dreams and never stop being ambitious.
8. Being Strong
No one expects you to be able to move heavy furniture on your own (but if you can – hey, props to you, you’re one hell of a woman). When we talk about being a strong woman we mean being able to overcome the hardships in life and being able to stand your ground when things get tough. Men appreciate a woman who can solve her own problems when she needs to.
9. Being Supportive
Men like to play tough and pretend they don’t need any help. They like being all macho and manly, but the truth is, they really require our support. It’s not something they can really expect from their male friends, since they’re all busy pretending to be super manly and emotionally unavailable. So when they find a girl who is supportive – they really cherish that.
