Since June is International Men’s Month, I thought it would be good to talk about “What A Man Wants”, besides sex. We all know they like that. Men can buy that, but they can’t buy a woman who consistently, sincerely, displays these character qualities to him...
From my conversations with many men, the number one thing they desire is respect. Actually, it is a biblical thing for them to desire that.
Ephesians 5:33 tells us to respect our husbands. The Amplified Bible says.
“Let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband [that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly].”
That is a mouthful and is a huge teaching in itself. In this article I’m giving you a few things to think about. Take time to expand it on your own.
Men desire women with strength of character.
This means she has integrity, honor, moral strength and backbone. Proverbs 31:10 asks the question: “Who can find a virtuous woman?” Virtuous means righteous, pure, moral, & ethical. Ladies, he may go out with a “Bad girl” at some point, but he’ll marry one with strength of character. He knows she can be counted on to do what is right.
Kindhearted is another attribute men are looking for in women. He’s not looking for a male companion.
Here are two scriptures that exhort us in the direction of being kind:
1Pet. 3:4 but your inner disposition. Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. (Message)
Prov. 31:26 When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions. (NLT)
Most men do not want a woman who sits around and does nothing all day. They want someone with some ambition.
The ambition she has enhances him, their family and their home. It isn’t something that throws out the baby with the bath water. Ambition has to do with - hard work; drive, determination, initiative, motivation, enthusiasm, resolve, commitment, sense of purpose, zeal.
I hope you can see that this can happen inside the home, as well as outside. First, we should show ambition in our home by getting things done there. Then we can go accomplish things outside of our home.
These are just a few qualities men are looking for in a woman.
