3 things men LOVE in women

05 November 2015, 14:59 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Let me put it this way, at times you see a man; very good looking, well to do, perfect well mannered, a gentleman, a man’s man and he knows how to take care of his woman. You look on his side and we all know what I meant when I said a woman who does not make sense; she does not fulfill all those societal standards on what a woman should look like-pretty/beautiful, some type of body shape and dressing. The woman on his arm is just kawaida for luck of a better word. Her body does not have any type of shape and her dressing sense is very lacking.

You sit down and think why can’t I; with everything that I have not attract that type of a man? What does she have?

Beauty is not a qualification

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but let us just take that out and say she has none; but let me tell you a good woman is just a good woman. That is just it. I am not saying that you cannot be beautiful and also be good but the reason you are being ignored is because of the other 90% who have created a misconception and a stereotype that you are being held to account for. Most beautiful women have this attitude of, ‘you need to climb a ladder in order for you to get to me’; such high standards, such great demands of what are you bringing to the table? But so little to offer afterwards. You look good on the arm, can hold a conversation and you can make a good hostess but after that, what next. Yet you still expect a man to lie at your feet.

Well-to-do men do not lie down, ever. One of you is going to have to back down and if you are too full of pride to do that, well then there is your answer as to why she has that man and you do not.

She is submissive when in matters

I am not saying he walks all over her. Let us just be honest, that thing about submissiveness is actually true. Men are actually attracted to that; even the weakest of them. So it is just a matter of choice that comes from you. You want to get married, have children and have a partner; well then, you do not have to make every conversation and discussion a battle ground.

Women misinterpret that quote about a man respecting a woman if she does not allow him to walk all over her. That does not mean he loses his respect along the way. If a man is providing well for you and your family some decisions you just have to let him have them; especially when you know they are the things that matter to him. Men are so easy to please if you just know how to go about it. You only battle with someone who is drinking away all your money.

You have to let go of some of your pre-dispositions

Dating, relationships and marriage; it is all a game, a game of strategy. You see someone, he is a catch and he is what you are looking for, he gives you two minutes to make a presentation; loose all those mannerisms you adopt. Be submissive, be wife material and be low maintenance all at once. Lose that bored expression on your face that tells people that they have to please you to get anywhere. You think that because you are beautiful and well dressed he will overlook the one looking meek and boring behind you so you roll your eyes. Just wait, she will get the date and you will go back home to remove all that make-up you wore for nothing.

Someone is reading this article and saying how I need to stop taking women back to the 18th century. It is okay, be like that. As I said, it is a matter of strategy and knowing when to back down. The best strategists win and those who are too high to get down can continue walking in the clouds. If you are satisfied, that is all that matters; but do not complain when you are still stuck in the same position.
