Ladies: These Are the 10 Things Your Man Really Wants From You

… (Previous page – Ladies: These Are the 10 Things Your Man Really Wants From You) but rather your presence instills confidence in him and puts him at ease.

Yes, you should go and say hi to your friends and meet new people, but never let your man feel abandoned. If he does feel like you left him in the dust, he’ll think you don’t care about him, and it’ll give him cause to worry about the state of your relationship. Guys are by nature territorial and protective, and as long as you’re in a relationship with him, you’re his gal and he wants you nearby.

10. Make Him Laugh
Every guy likes a girl who can make him laugh. But don’t feel as though you need to be a stand-up comic or Miss Personality to put a smile on his face. Sometimes, it’s enough just for you to laugh at his dumb jokes.

Guys want to see that you can relax, chill out, and have some fun. Showing you have a sense of humor demonstrates that you’re on the same page, you have chemistry, and your personalities are aligned.

At the end of the day, physical attraction only goes so far and laugher makes your guy feel calm, easy, and comfortable around you. It shows that he can be himself around you.

Bonus: Tell Him You Love Him
A guy naturally wants to be in control and drive the relationship. So, some say that the guy should always be the first to initiate those three little words. However, behind that tough exterior, guys are soft, insecure, and afraid, too.

If you’re sure that you’ve got all ten actions on this list covered in your relationship, then you can feel confident that your guy is crazy about you, too, and you shouldn’t feel shy about telling him you love him.

Then, when you tell him that you love him, that he means the world to you, it comes from a place of respect, admiration, appreciation, and deep-down truth. And that’s why a guy stays.

I love all these articles and emails. It seems they are all directed at me personally. I have met a guy that seems to be a great match for me so far and as I have had many failed relationships, for the first time I am trying very hard to do this one right! I read your emails and articles every day. Keeping myself in check and not being neurotic and obsessed is a giant task for me and I’m trying to change that, for myself. Thank you.

Way to stereotype and generalize your own gender, sir. Not all men are the same, behave the same, think the same, or want the same things in a relationship.

And guess what, as women, we want these exact same things in a relationship.

It means you don’t satisfy him in bed and he won’t waste time telling you this because once he does, h4 won’t know if you’re being a good lay cuz you want to or if it’s cuz he said something

Hi Iv’e been in a four year relationship, and about two months ago he broke up with me, but I wouldnt blame him even though he would try and avoid and hurtful things to say or try and tell me where im going wrong he would just say I dont want to change you and now he tells me out straight I dont want a relationship but ill always be around and ill be here for you, but I guess probably for sex but he doesnt suggest it and i always give in and Im not really that type of person with a low self-esteem and i dont want to become that person im just curious to know if i should move forward or try to get him back?

I recently started dating after after a 14 year marriage ended. I met a guy on New Years Eve and we had great chemistry. He started texting me several times a day and we went out several times. We got pretty close in a short amount of time. I was surprised because the last thing I wanted was a relationship. Lately, his work hours increased and he became distant. Texting slowed down and I seemed to be initiating them. Now it’s been 5 days and nothing. I feel like it’s too new to initiate a text message and don’t know how/why I could feel needy towards him. I wanted to get to know him better but feel at this point I should just let it go and walk away?

I’m new to this,so I’m not sure if there’ll be a response,but I really hope to get a answer :)

I have a question about this guy…
So this guy has been chasing me for about 8 months for just one kiss,I guess I was sort of leading him on and off but nothing mean,I just wasn’t sure about him.This story has way more details of course but once I gave him the chance I started to like this guy then we kissed him and he really likes me back but he never thought this was going to go anywhere,he thinks he doesn’t deserve me and that I’m perfect.He also doesn’t have confidence that he’ll be a good boyfriend.Now that we both like each other,we are planning to have a relationship but he needs “time”.I asked him for what and he answered “to clear up on his immaturity to fully commit to me”.And when I asked him what kind of immaturity? Well he said “meaningless sex”… Now I understand that guys have sex in them biologically and we both know that if we date,it’ll be a time-while thing and that I don’t want to have sex yet so I can’t grant him that need. So of course I’m letting him (I mean I don’t want to,so ya) he said it won’t mean anything,that it’ll take him a month tops and that I don’t have to worry.
Now should I be worrying about this and why?

I eagerly await an answer,if I need to add any details to my story for my answer to be clearer I do not mind giving them at all :)

Hi Isabelle!
I’ll give you a quick opinion of mine about your situation….I think the guy who has been “chasing” after you for eight months should definitely be already ready for you. If he was previously so desperate to be with you, why would he be needing a month away from you…? I think that he’s still unsure what he wants and is confused himself, and he probably doesn’t like the thought of being tied down to one girl. Now, this is what I’m getting from the general info you gave. Hope this kind of helps you figure out what’s going on! :)
