Seven Characteristics Women Want In A Man
I am back with a new post ^_^ Last month, I read Antonio Willis's (one of my fellow bloggers) blog post. Mr. Willis shared eight characteristics every man needs (Characteristics Every Man Needs) in themselves. The eight characteristics that Mr. Willis listed are patience, direction, reliability, continuous growth, control of emotions, humbleness, self-sufficient, and selflessness. I enjoyed reading Mr. Wllis's post. I believe Mr. Willis is being honest and logical. I also believe and agree that these are the eight characteristics every man must have in themselves. These eight characteristics are also important for a man's self-development.

Therefore, I would also like to share my own opinion about the characteristics every man must have in themselves. For this post, I listed seven characteristics that I believe every woman (including me) wants in a man. Ladies, pls take note too. This is also important for you. So the seven characteristics are...
#1 LIFE DIRECTIONS
In Islam, a man is always the head of the house and leader of the family. So a man needs to have life directions. It is true that most of us - girls don't see this as an important factor during our younger days. But as we grow older, we start to think that it is important to choose a man who has life directions as our life partner. It is because this factor will affect our future.
We, women, are human beings and we are not perfect too. We have our own attitude, mood, and sometimes we can also be annoying. So it is important for a man to be patient and have control of his emotions. Being patience is the key to a happy relationship and marriage. We women, don't like to be shout or scream at. So man, pls take note.
#3 HUMBLE AND DOWN TO EARTH
As a woman, I don't like a guy who thinks he is "Mr. All That", and I am sure that all ladies don't like this kind of character in a man too. Am I right? We, women, liked and adored men who are humble and down to earth. I believe humble guys are the best guys in the world. Plus, this is a sign of highly intelligent people. So what do you ladies think?
#4 ACCEPT A WOMAN FOR WHO SHE IS
Guys, we know that you also have your tastes and characteristics you liked in us. But we also wanna remind you that we, women are not perfect, and so are you. That's why we, women make characteristic no.4 a priority when selecting a partner. We want our man to accept us for who we are. Every woman has their own beauty and weaknesses. The same goes for men. If you guys want us to accept you for who you are, you must also accept us for who we are. In Islam, there is no such thing as a "trophy wife" and "trophy husband". If you love each other, you accept each other for their beauty and weaknesses. That's makes your love puzzle complete.
The world has changed compared to the old days. Women nowadays have education, career, ambitions, and dreams. Not all of us want to be housewives. So we need to have a supportive partner. We want our men to support us, cheer for us, and motivate us to achieve our dreams. Guys, pls take note. This is very important!
I believe most men would not be happy with me after reading characteristic no.6. But self-sufficiency is one of the most wanted characteristics women want in a man. Am I right ladies? Pls, be honest. Like I said in point no.5 - the world has changed and there are a lot of women nowadays have their own career and job. So this means, men cannot rely on their wives and girlfriends to prepare food for them, wash and iron their clothes every day or week, and manage their money or time. Guys, pls understand we, women have ourselves to look after too. We also need a break. We cannot be doing too many works at one time. So our man needs to understand this and let us have our me-time. Pls guys, have some self-respect and be independent in looking after yourself. Trust me, there's always pride in it. It is never wrong for a man to cook, wash and iron his clothes himself, and also clean his own house. Plus, it is also awesome if you guys cook for your woman, and help her do the chores. I always see a man who cooks for his woman, and helps his woman with house works as romantic and awesome (so superhero like!). Hehehe. So what do you ladies think? Agree or disagree with me?
#7 LOVING AND ROMANTIC
Guys and girls, pls take note with characteristic no.7. There's a difference between being "loving and romantic" and "being a flirt". Romeo and Cassanova are two different people. Being loving and romantic means you are loyal to one woman, cherish and loved her with all your heart. Plus, you treat her well or the way she wants you to. But if you are the kind of man who liked to woo all pretty ladies you meet, and sweet-talk them with your charming and unsincere words - you are not loving and romantic. You are just a flirt! In Bahasa Malaysia it means - kaki menggatal or menggeliat. Guys, pls don't be this kind of person. No girls what their man to be a flirt and cheat on them.
Okay,......... so these are the seven characteristics women want in a man. I hope there's no man offended with this post. I am just being honest, but I am not pointing my finger at you guys. If you guys want your woman to be good for you, you must also show a good example to your woman. Showing a good example means showing a good side of yourself. Trust me, women believe in good things.
As a woman, I also disagree with the quote "Don't date a woman who her father treats her like a princess, because she thinks she really is a princess". Ooohhh.......... that quote is total bullshit! Whoever created it must a bullshit himself/herself. In Islam, a man needs to treat his woman like a queen/princess. That is what Prophet Muhammad S.A.W taught us. If a man wants to live his life like a king, he must treat his wife like a queen first. Only then he can live his life like a king.
Last but not least, I would also like to advise my ladies - married or single, to be honest. If there is anything that you disagree with your man, tell him. Don't keep your problems to yourself. For those who are single and looking for someone, be honest too. Tell the guy that you like or dating A to Z about yourself. C'mon, you want a life partner. Not just someone to be with you at the time being. So he needs to know the real you. Don't be fake and pretend to be someone that you are not.
Ok'lah, that's all. Thank you for reading. Pls don't forget to rate and comment on this post, and if you like this post - pls feel free to share it.

This is a great post. My husband and I have been married for twenty-four years. I am blessed beyond words with the type of man that he is. He has all of those qualities and so many more. Thanks for sharing! :)ReplyDelete
God bless you. I wish I will meet the same kinda guy in the future.Delete
These are definitely great characteristics to look for in a man for sure!ReplyDelete
All the above things you mention are spot on. I would also include caring. (Not overprotective) I love it when my partner shows me this side of him. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
I believe caring falls in the same category as loving and romantic. Men who are loving and romantic are also caring.Delete
For me, number 1 & 2, kalau seorang lelaki tu ada dan boleh kontrol, insya'Allah kesemuanya hingga ke number 7 semuanya akan dipermudahkan..ReplyDelete
Yep, I second that.Delete
tak pernah pula dengar quote pasal date a woman like princess tu tapi yupp agree memang bullshit haha. Dapat lelaki yang ringan tulang dan tinggi kesabaran tu dah bersyukur dahReplyDelete
Kan. That’s all it takes to be a real man. But not all can do it. So sad.Delete
Kita boleh letak garis panduan lelaki macam mana yg kita nak. Tapi tu la, kadang dalam banyak2 criteria tu, payah la nak jumpa lelaki yg ada complete semua criteria. Biasalah manusia, mana ada yg sempurna kan.ReplyDelete
Yep, we are not asking our man to be perfect for us. Just ikut syarat wajib pilih suami jadik lah.Delete
I'd also say reliable, I think it fits somewhere in these categories. It is so important to count on your partner for whatever. I like the part about being honest from the beggining about who you are.ReplyDelete
I think reliable should be in the same category with self-sufficient. Man who can manage themselves are reliable.Delete
Can i add one? Must be handsome. Hahaha. Tak adalah. Just sedap mata memandang dan attitude baik berkenan di hati je dah cukup kan sebagai add-on :)ReplyDelete
Yep,........ handsome, pandai masak, sayang Kucing, suka membaca Dan travel comes without saying. Hehehe.Delete
I totally agree with all your points... remember women need space for themselves too... so men be independent and not rely on women to do everything...ReplyDelete
Kan. Dan suami kenalan beri kejer same dgn isteri dlm hal rumah tangga. X boley lah serba-serbi nak perah isteri jer. Kan depa ketua keluarga. Bertanggungjawab lah. Ahax!Delete
Still searching.. Mana dia menyorok tak tau la.. Wish me luck ya.. Hahahhaha.. Jodoh rahsia Allah.. Tq for sharing..ReplyDelete
Oh I see. So you are still single eh. Same lah kita. Good luck to the both of us. Insya’Allah. Aamiin.Delete
Tak ssmua apa kita idamkan akan dapat.. Penting emmaahami, tahu tanggungjawab dan penyanyang..ReplyDelete
Btul. Tapi 3 yg Nad sebut nie pun bukan senang nak jumpa tau.Delete
You are so right on all of these. I especially like that you mentioned being humble. That is such a wonderful quality!ReplyDelete
Yes...... a real man must be down to earth. That’s what my late grandfather told me.Delete
This is a great list and focuses on what's really important!ReplyDelete
I agree with these characteristics. It made me feel as though I was reading Vogue or Cosmo.ReplyDelete
When looking for a partner in really just look for someone kind and supportive! Thankyou for sharing xReplyDelete
Kind and supportive is one the best qualities.Delete
Great list, patience is key when it comes to spending your life with the right person ♥️ReplyDelete
If a man is patience with us, it means he accept us for who we are. That’s why it is important.Delete
okay ,lepas ni saya akan usahakan ke arah itu. haha nnti nak buat list sama utk wanita pulak 😊ReplyDelete
Yeah!!!!!!! Be the man with qualities bro. Kalo btul you buat list wanita jgn lupa notify saya yer. Hehehe........Delete
wah gigih kita baca satu-satu artikel ni tau . terima kasih atas sharing . so dah tau la sekarang heheReplyDelete
Thank you for reading.Delete
Hehe nobodys perfectkan? Hehe memang la pompuan nak yg romantik, caring, penyayang bla bla bla but to me jgn letak terlalu tinggi harapan. Terima pasangan seadanya if tak kita yg stressReplyDelete
Yes, nobody’s perfect and we should not have high hopes. But I do believe a man must make himself good for the woman he loves. If not no point being with him.Delete
I really hope that in this day and age, there aren't mean that aren't willing to cook and clean, and to generally be able to look after themselves.ReplyDelete
That said, I hope there are women too who are able to do that. I once dated a girl who didn't even no how to cook a can of beaked beans, either on the stove or in a microwave. How can adult not know basic stuff like that?
Hahaha........ to be honest, there are a lot of women nowadays who are quite awkward at cooking and cleaning the house. I also have to be honest that I am one of them. I only learned how to cook and clean when I was 21 years old and till now I am still in the process of learning. I am just not born with the talent (I am always proud to say that. Hehehe). However, I believe there’s no man/woman should be discriminated for not knowing how to cook and clean. Just because they are not good at it, it doesn’t mean they can’t managed themselves well. Plus, not all men/women who are good at cooking and cleaning are the best people in the world. If he/she doesn’t have a good heart, their talent in cooking and cleaning are just no use.Delete
Great post, very honest. It’s good to get a female perspective on things.ReplyDelete
And thanks for the shoutout
Welcome. Thank you for your comment too. I am happy to hear this from a man’s point of view.Delete
Tidak semua orang sempurna kan.... kena saling lengkap melengkapi.. itulah namanya sebuah kehidupanReplyDelete
