What Do Women Want? #Relationships

What would make her happy?  
I want to be married again.  I want someone to come home to, hug and kiss, and swap stories about our day at work.  I want to look forward to planning a date night every week.  I want to travel with someone who appreciates seeing different places.  I know exactly what I want for my life.

But here's my dilemma: I haven't a clue to what women want.

At one time, I thought that women would want honesty.  That they want a man who would tell them the truth, regardless of how bad it may sound.  They want someone who is trustworthy because he has a track record of being honest about his actions.

Nope.  Not it.

Okay, well, how about this: Women want loyalty, right?  They want a guy who would never put himself in a position where there's an opportunity to cheat.  He doesn't have to guard his cell phone day and night because he's not doing anything wrong.  He only wants his lady and no one else.

Nope.  Not it.

Okay, I know this one has to be it: Women want security.  That has to be the ticket, right?  They want a man who has a career and not a job.  Someone who takes his household responsibilities seriously.  When the house note is due then that's what he's paying.  He's not waiting in line for the next pair of Jordans to drop while bills still need to be paid.

Nope.  Still not it.

So, what do women want in relationships?  I keep racking my brain trying to figure it out.  If it's not honesty, trust, loyalty, security, and responsibility, then what is it?

Wait.  Now that I think about it, they do want all of those things.  Just not from me.  LOL!

    1. Women sometimes link love to a specific package. However, you can not judge a book by its cover. Neither should you judge a man by looks alone.

    2. Is that package something people are seeking subconsciously? Are most of us programmed?

  2. I shared this post with 3 women I'm working with in GA today, and the response was the same. Women want these things, but often times, we look at the wrapping rather than the gift. Rather than falling in love with the entire package, we want the gift and try to mold the packaging into our ideal gift bag. That's not unconditional love, but rather a form of conditional love, but denying the true power of love. Love says I accept you just the way you are.

    1. True. I love how you stated that: "...we look at the wrapping rather than the gift." I'm so stealing that!

  3. I posted this earlier, then removed it. However, after hearing the responses of the women I shared the article with, I realize that some women know what they want, but are afraid to receive it. When this was mentioned, I realized how true that statement was. There are things in our past that sometimes impact how we love and how we allow others to love us. Unless the root cause is dealt with, then we won't be free to love or be loved.

    1. And a lot of people don't know how or refuse to accept that their past is haunting them. We rarely seek help, even self-help, for our issues.
