So, you're trying to unlock the mystery of what men actually want in a relationship? Unfortunately, there isn't a straight answer. As what men want to be in a relationship depends on what life the phase they are. For example, the commitment level for a long-term relationship varies when men are in their 20s and 30s. However, despite those odds, most men are willing to commit to long-term relationships at any time.
So, if you are ready to have a relationship with a man or just started dating, here are five things most men would like to see in a relationship:
Be Well-Versed in Communicating
There is some truth in the famous adage that men don't like to talk about their feelings. But the reality is not they don't want to; it's because most men don't know how to talk to them. Adding some weight to that statement, we can safely say a lot of men and women also don't know how to convey their feelings to their partners. So, if you want to have a conversation with a man, the best way to that is going with a direct and non-confrontational approach. If you see something off or why he is sad or stressed out, or even happy, ask him what it is and why you're asking him. This type of communication will also help two people in a relationship to get to know about each other.
Don't Try To Change Him
Habits are hard to change. If you notice some habits or behaviors in him like your partner leaving clothes on the sofa or not leaving the toilet seat up, don't get confrontation about it. Aside from the little things, don't try to change a man. Instead, try to encourage him to man up and assist him in doing do. If you go overboard and get rid of his habits in a few days, that relationship is bound to end soon.
Give Him Space
Every individual has his or her interests and opinions. When two people start a relationship, there is a lot of excitement and euphoria on both sides. They want to talk and spend time with each other. But as the relationship matures, people want to pursue their interests. So, respect him, give him some space and yourself some space.
Take an interest in His Hobbies
It's very hard to find a guy, not into something, whether it's sports, video games, hiking, sailing you name it. Instead of dismissing his hobbies and other activities, take an interest in them. This will make him appreciate you even more.
Take it Slow Rather Than Rushing
Being in a serious, long-term relationship required commitment, but it takes some time for some men to get to that phase. Don't rush your man to have a serious relationship just after a few dates and a few weeks. It will intimidate him and force him to end the relationship with you. Instead, try bringing up the subject when you think your relationship in at the spot. This can happen after a few dates or after a few weeks. Speaking to a guy about having a long-term commitment is something that you bring over time.
Every man is different when it comes to their wants and needs. Just because you have a relationship with a man once, doesn't translate that all men expect the same thing from a relationship. The key here is understanding his needs, respecting him as an individual and what makes him as he is, and being honest what you want from him and need from this relationship.
