What Do Men Really Want?

One large mistake that many men make is incorrectly focusing on what they think an ideal woman is in terms of behavior, looks, or actions.   Since virtually every man doesn’t come close to getting this right, it’s a good idea to examine what exactly men are seeking in the relationship arena.

Ask any man what it is that he is seeking when dating the opposite sex and you will encounter a range of answers that will stretch from the sublime to the ridiculous, with the majority leaning towards the latter.  The infamous “I’ll know it when I see/hear/smell/feel/taste it” can be generally translated as “I have no idea at all what I really want”.  Often, men rely on what their minds (read: eyes) tell them instead of their hearts, and often make poor choices as far as dates are concerned. 

Men will be all over the place as far as what they want, desiring someone who is attractive, sexy, smart, salacious, a good cook, listens well, is a caretaker, nurturer, great map reader, and so on.  The list gets even more specific in places like New York, Paris, Rome or Los Angeles where there are a plethora of pretty women; the premium on attractiveness goes up significantly.
