Men and women are different, so does what each wants from a relationship. And on top of it, every woman is different, and most of the relationship advice you find are for men addressing the unique needs of women and how to treat her. The key to a meaningful and fulfilling relationship is to understand what the woman in your life wants and if you can understand it, then both of you can have a happy relationship.
Here are the four things women want in a relationship:
1. Get to Know Her Deeply From Your Heart
To be honest, most women confess that while on their first dates, most men want to cut the chase over knowing about them and get them straight to bed. Women hate this because it is just plain wrong to think women only care about sleeping with men and this shows that you’re interested in being in a committed relationship. Instead, be a gentleman; get to know her genuinely by sharing something about yourself, open up to her about your life, your interests, your values and what you want from her.
2. Express Your Love in Her Language
According to Dr. Gary Chapman’s book on marriage counseling, “The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts”, there are five emotional languages of love, people express and understand love. They are: saying words of affirmation, spending quality time, receiving gifts, physical touch and performing the acts of service. Once you find your partner’s love language, express your love to her by using it the way to she’s responds to it emotionally.
3. The Only Way to Have Her Heart is Empathy
When dealing with relationships, they best advice for men is to master the skill of being empathetic to their partners. Deep inside women’s desire to be heard and understood by their partners. They want their boyfriends and husbands to listen to them and express how vulnerable they are in a comfortable environment without being judged. You know you lack empathy when your girlfriend or wife tells you, “I only want you to listen,” or “You don’t understand what I say to you.” She feels alone and lost when you don’t understand her, or that she can’t trust you in solving her problems. Showing real empathy makes her feel that you both are a team, and determined to do anything to face any challenges life throws at you.
4. Up Your Romance Game
Most women have complained that they feel alone and rejected because their partners aren’t intimate with them emotionally as well as physically. This is the last thing to happen to the woman before she ends her relationship with you. To prevent this, prove to her that you can do it. Let her know that she can rely on you not only for emotional intimacy, but for physical intimacy too. Be intimate with her, tell you love her when she wakes up in the morning, and kiss her when you come home, tell her she’s beautiful, surprise her with a love letter, give her a massage, plan a romantic date night now and then and keep that romantic fire burning.
The bottom line is, women want their partners to make them feel safe, be sexy and noticed. Think and try to do the things that make the woman in your life feel special and your relationship worthwhile.
