3 Important Things That Men Look for in a Relationship

Contrary to the popular opinion among women, what men want in a relationship are really simple attributes. Men are not complex, in fact they are really simple in their needs.

What Do Men Want in a Relationship?

Here are three important things that I think most men (including myself) look for in a relationship. These primal needs are basically the same as it was in with their primitive ancestors and in many ways these are very similar to what a woman would look for in a relationship. So here is what men want from their lifemate.

1.) A Lover

Men seek physical and emotional satisfaction in their relationship. Most men are emotional beings. Women who beg to differ have just been meeting the minority. The fact is that men have to show a tough exterior outside because society expects this of them.

The toughest men have the softest hearts. Men want love and care from their partner, more than anything else. They just want a woman who will love and support them for who they are, without judgements.

2.) A Trustworthy Partner

Just like women, men look for trust and stability in their relationship. A woman whom they can trust a hundred percent, who will be with them in times of joy and sorrow.

3.) A Friend

Only a woman can be a man's best friend, this is because men don't share their emotional facets with their male buddies. Men need a lot of emotional support which they depend on their woman to provide. If the history is any proof, the most successful men had a strong woman in their life. True friendship is what men really want in a relationship.

In a nutshell, if you are asking what do men want in a relationship, the answer will be:
  • Love.
  • Trust.
  • Physical Intimacy.
  • Friendship.
Apart from these, most other attributes are secondary.
