What Men and Women Want, Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, we looked at what men who are actively involved in personal growth and development want from a partner in order to build a great relationship. Men said the most important components a woman can contribute toward a healthy, long-term partnership include communication, self-sufficiency, the absence of manipulation, emotional stability, commitment, and an understanding of men.

This week I'll reveal what women want from a man in order to build a great relationship, contrasted with what men think women want. You'll also find tips for men to give women what they want, attract a great woman, and create a wonderful relationship.

Women want clear, open, responsible communication and listening.
Women want men to communicate. Women specifically want communication about feelings, needs, wants, hopes, dreams, problems, solutions, and all other things that make a relationship work. Women also want communication about expectations and plans. Women would rather put things on the table than sweep them under the rug. Women want men to communicate, listen, and respond.
Men think women want them to be women. They think women need men to talk as much as women do. They believe women are often out to make them wrong. On the other hand, some men believe women talk just to talk.

**Tip for Men**
To participate in communication is the greatest gift a man can give a woman and himself. No solid relationship can be built without truly listening, reflecting, and thoughtfully responding. If a solid, passionate, wonderful relationship with a great woman is what you want, learn or polish your skills of listening and communicating.

Women want men who are introspective and aware.
Women want men to know their own minds and hearts. They want men who know what makes them happy or sad. They want men who are aware of what they want and understand what motivates their action or inaction.
Men think women want them to only be concerned with the woman's wants and needs. Men believe women are interested in controlling many aspects of the relationship.

**Tip for Men**
A powerfully introspective, self-aware man is a huge attractor for many women. What's more, self-awareness and introspection make building a great relationship an easy endeavor. Start or continue practicing introspection and self-awareness.

Women want men who are committed to the relationship -- exclusively and for the long haul.
Like men, women also want a partner who will commit to the relationship for the long haul. They want a man who wants fidelity and values it as a cornerstone of building a relationship.
Men know women want long-term commitment and fidelity, but sometimes misinterpret this desire as neediness. They think women want the commitment for security reasons, to complete the woman or even to own the man.

**Tip for Men**
If you want to attract the type of a woman who knows how to build a powerful, passionate partnership, you must want to commit for the long haul. If she wants to commit to you, take it for the compliment it is. She considers you a man worthy of her trust and love.

Women want fun, playful, creative, passionate men.
Women want a man who enjoys what life has to offer. They want a man who knows how to play, who is not afraid to make a fool of himself, who lives his passions. They want a man of creative, intellectual, playful substance.
Men often think women want complete and total devotion of the man's time and focus. Men sometimes believe, if unconsciously, that women want to have a relationship for the sake of security. Hence, men often believe they have to give up their playful, passionate, creative nature when entering a relationship.

**Tip for Men**
Modern women want a mate, and that means at least partly a playmate. If you want to attract a powerful, vibrant, great woman and build an outstanding relationship, relearn to play. Discover your passion for life to make yourself irresistibly attractive.

Women want a man who cares deeply about his as well as her needs.
Women want a man who will care deeply about her needs and wants without losing himself in the process. They want a man who can recognize and acknowledge what she wants and address it; a man who can say no or yes, depending on which one is more true to his heart; a man who can give to his relationship and partner without sacrificing himself.
Men think women will need more and more if their needs are recognized and honored. Men think women want men to give themselves up to the relationship. On the other hand, men sometimes think women want to be left alone to lick their wounds when they feel needy.

**Tip for Men**
To know, see, and take care of another's needs while recognizing and taking care of your own needs is not an easy thing. It is, however, one of the more powerful skills needed to build a long-term, vibrant, healthy relationship. You would do well to learn or sharpen this skill.

Women want financially and professionally responsible men.
Women and men want the same things here. Women want a man who knows where he is going career-wise, and is on the way to getting there. They want a man who has dreams and is working on making them happen. They want a man who uses the tool of money wisely, and knows how to be both frugal and generous.
Men think women want their money, or only want men with money. Men think women want them for the security their money could provide.

**Tip for Men**
In truth, there are women who want to be supported by men financially, just as there are men who want to be supported by women financially. A woman who can be a great relationship partner will want a man who can be a financial partner. Handle the money, honey, in a way meaningful for you.
