4 things women look for in men

07 September 2015, 15:33 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - What does a woman look for in a man?

Does he haggle over everything?

With everyone? There is nothing wrong with being skeptical as well as practical when it comes to the value of your money. On the other hand there are those guys who know how to take it a little bit far. You go to a restaurant that he took you to and he keeps asking the waiter why it has to be so expensive. How do you even haggle in a restaurant? You brought us here, if you did not want to pay that much, why not pick a different place and save us all that embarrassment. It is a free market. What it communicates to me as a woman is that I will be doing the same battle with you everyday over everything. There is one thing women like and that is; knowing I can get away with anything especially when it comes to money with my husband. You cannot take that away. Not because we need it but because we like it.

How you talk about women

How you view other women, is how you view her as well. Do not say, I think you are different from them but they are all this and that. As long as you generalize, she is not an exception. A clever woman will see that. Do you objectify women, see them as conquests, a womanizer or believe they are second class citizens? It will translate to my relationship with you and no women who is hardworking, goes to school, has a couple of jobs wants to be viewed at a negative light by her own man. She will want someone supportive to her vision and goals, if you fight against that, then she does not want to deal with that.

How you treat her

Not all women are willing to stick around with just any guy because of a need to be in a relationship. Some of us can actually see when we are being fed a lot of crap and we are not going to stick around for it. It does not matter if the ration of men to women is 1:7. We will take our chances rather than stay in a relationship and not feel good about ourselves. The men in our lives are meant to make us feel better not degraded or worse. Do you talk about me nicely or negatively? Do you go out of your way to make sure I am okay or you could care less? Are you passive aggressive with me or your actions show me what we are about? We look out for those things.

How you behave around other women

Especially when I am around. Are you sneaking a peek or you are focused on me and what I am saying. Do you openly flirt with other women  and not care what I think?
