Throughout my short life, I have read a lot of books about what women want from men, I have heard them talking about what they desire and need, I have observed them and I have put all that together with what I, as a woman, expect from a man and two words summarize it all: safety & security.
We are strong human beings, we are powerful but we need protection and backup and connection. We need to be sure that we are in the right path, we need to know and see that we can let our guard down with you. We need to be sure that we are not jeopardizing our future and our life with you. To quote Dave Barry, “What women want are to be loved, to be listened to, to be desired, to be respected, to be needed, to be trusted, and sometimes, just to be held.”
We need you to show us affection and tenderness. No big deals! A hug, an appreciative word, a simple act!!!!
We need men to consistently tell us and show us their love. We need to know they will always be there during our old and flabby days. We need to trust you and we need your support. We need you to be, stay and remain faithful to us.
If you are our best friends, our partners, good husbands to us, good fathers to our kids, good people to other people surrounding us then you are the men we need in our lives.
