How about a guy with a memory? remembers all the important dates, favorite foods, movies, shoes, designers and why these things are important to them. Also remembers why he loves her and not someone else.

I would hope that men would know that all women would want a best friend, a damn good lover(and no it's not! wrong to want a good lover!!) someone that they could trust and have a good laugh with. Respect, communication, mental stimulation. That could be just what this woman wants...I don't think some men know...many don't have a clue.

I agree with the poster that said ask her...honesty goes a long long way.

But what many fail to see is that couples need to bond in more ways than just mutual attraction and chemistry. If they don't share commonality beyond that, then there will be no true friendship or mental stimulation. How could there be?

Men especially need to take heed of that.

And as for the women, maybe ya'll should also realize that you need to be yourselves and not change for the sake of anyone. Nor should men have to change for you. Bonding happens because of who and what you are. It's the sign of true compatibility.

It has been my experience that jag62 is 100% correct. Each woman is unique and what is important for one woman most likely is different for the next woman.

I find some of the posts on here amusing! Especially from some MICE masquerading as men saying silly cliches about money and sex.

For me, it is easy. The most sensual part of a woman's body is her brain, and an intelligent woman looks better to me than an illiterate Barbie. Once I capture a woman's imagination, the rest will follow.....

Do men reallly know what women want? NO!

Fortunately, most men I know in my life readily admit this.

"No" makes for a great starting ground. I've found that every person is individual (gender may produce some similiarities, but we aren't all the same and don't all want the same things).

I don't know what men want either, generally speaking, so take it on a case by case basis. Most men I've met know to do this with women too. It's called "getting to know each other."

the TRUE response NO ONE has yet to figure out is YES. Men know what women want. There are lots of things and men can fulfill plenty of them. They are logical creatures.

The POINT of the matter is it's WOMEN who DONT know what THEY want.

Girls will blow off a perfect gentlemen and prince because of some peice of irrationality. A guy will blow her off after a long string of irationalities if everything else was fine.

One of the most honest answers here.

If your here to find someone date and know better,
be patience and be realistic cuz in alot of ways it's no different off line.

imo,one of the biggiest misconceptions here is instant compatitbility cuz you think you have more knowledge to go on,not so.

I have meet some beautiful friends here which grew over time and commuication was paramount with them, this is called being on the same page!

Now if your not sure what she wants just ask or watch that movie with Mel Gibson or

and when I was a young peep the best information I was given was women love vanity

so if you click with her 'sweet nothings' can go along way.

P.S. And lastly,my good old mom, taught me right!

Thanks.........

Funny cause women don't even know what they want. Every couple of years women change their mind when it comes to what they want in a man. Before women start bad mouthing me on this thread, women have told me this & at my age & still dating I've come to realize they might be right.

Haha... THAT's funny!


Truth is... a woman will never tell you what she REALLY wants. I haven't read all 13 pages of this thread, but I have read several and here is what I've not seen anyone say yet:

Women will say they want a nice guy who's honest, caring, trustworthy.. blah blah blah.. But, what they really want is a jerk. A guy who is nice once in a while, but a "bad boy" the rest. Ever notice how all the nice guys are single and all the jerks have hot girlfriends?

This is definitely worth a read: http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/lax/483318927.html

What women want does not seem to be what they respond to? They may say that they want integrity and morales and honesty but the fact is they just dont respond to it. They respond to the arrogant so called badboy type who cheats on them and generally treats them like crap but the catch is he is usually very good looking and this leads me to believe that all women really want in a man is looks nothing else seems to matter,unless the woman is asian then its all about your money........go figure

That's a good one!
IMO, wheather it be a man or woman, if both are open,honest,healthy,over your

ex,healed moved on, then and only then, ready to date with another or just be

friends,whatever cuz these are the folks worth seeking as their center is quite visible.

Now ,if they are not there yet, then all the licking in the world,you'll will never find

that 'center', in what they want or need.

True to some extent. I know a guy who is 36, broke, just lost his license and has women chasing him. From 22 year olds to a married 45 year old, he's banged them all. His confidence and his ability to treat women like nobody's to their faces is what gets him that action. They literally compete for sex from him. As soon as they show an interest in him, he takes immediate advantage of it which means he's getting his rocks off. He chases no one, they all come after him.

Now he's on the hunt for someone to drive him around and you know what, he'll find some dumbass out there who is going to do just that. All the while fvcking his brains out at the same time.

If I didn't see it with my own eyes I'd never believe it myself but it's true. Women are truly that stupid. And the guy I describe above me says the same thing and takes advantage of it. Why not? We laugh about it actually and we got a name for them, co*k pumpers. And no, I do not agree with his approach but I could careless because those are the women that I avoid. Even he says that he wouldn't want relationships with any of them beyond just using them for sex or whatever. On top of it all, he makes me realize just how rare descent women who use their brains are to find these days.

Pardon me for correcting some folks but men were hunters predominantly and women gathered most other foods which was a substantial amount of the diet such as nuts, berries, fruit, grain, vegetables, seeds, bark, herbs, beans, legumes, eggs and basically anthing non life threatening to gather since women were needed for childbearing and increasing the village and were therefore harder to replace. Men were not traditionally gatherers. That was womens work.

In my experience men have absolutely no idea what I need and if I told them I could provide everything for myself and only really NEEDED their warm muscular bodies to make love to they would be offended so I never say that but it's true. They like to say they can handle only being needed for sex but they are lying to themselves. They don't mind treating us like that though.

Everything else is a nice to have and is negotiable. Being unattractive and sexually inept is not negotiable so all you folk who think women don't care about attraction are either full of crappola or I'm a freak. Nah, I know my gf's feel the same way but then all my gf's are good earners and can get what they need from their paycheques like me.

Sorry, not trying to be obnoxious but that's the bottom line folks.
