All men have an image of their ideal woman in their mind. But how do you find out what that image looks like? Offering a man what he desires makes you not only irresistible in his eyes, but also increases your chances of forming a durable connection.

As incredible as it may sound, men are simple creatures with simple desires. No matter what they do (be it sports, work, weekends or friends), they don’t usually like to complicate their lives. If you manage to become everything a man wants you to be, you can have everything you want in your relationship.

#1. Be independent

Men don’t like needy women. They don’t want women who need to be motivated by them, be “saved” by them. Men like women who can take care of themselves, who have their own life outside the relationship, who have their own ambitions and goals in life. Two words: driven women.

#2. Be playful

Men like to make jokes and, although they know there are times when they need to get serious, what they really dislike is a woman who can’t take a joke. If you get easily offended and take everything more seriously than you need to, you won’t be able to become the woman of his dreams. You’ve got to lighten up.

#3. Be positive

If your first thought when confronted with a new or unexpected situation is “No way! I can’t do this!”, you need to quickly revise your outlook on life. Nobody likes bad vibes, and men definitely don’t like women with a negative attitude towards life. They want women to be positive and enthusiastic about both life and themselves, women who are able to create positive vibes around themselves.

#4. Be confident

It is not easy to learn self-confidence, especially if you are not a naturally self-confident person, but it is something you need to do if you are to become the woman of his dreams. If you’re always looking for a man to rescue you, bear in mind that men want confident and assertive women, not perpetual damsels in distress.

#5. Be feminine

This is one of the most important traits men like in women. The gentler, kinder and more compassionate you are, the more he will love you. The man’s job is to do the “manly stuff”. What he needs from you is to be a proper lady, to love him, care for him and complement him in everything.

#6. Be supportive

Men have goals and ambitions. Sometimes these goals might seem too far out of reach. Nevertheless, you need to constantly encourage and support your man in whatever he decides to pursue. Men need to feel you always in their corner, cheering for them and believing in them. If you give them that, there is nothing they will not be able to do if they put their mind to it.

#7. Be appreciative

Men like to be appreciated. They expect you to acknowledge their nice gestures, even if with a simple “thank you”. You can always go the extra mile and reciprocate with some special surprise, but we’ll leave that to your imagination. The main idea is that their efforts and generosity should not go unnoticed and unappreciated.

#8. Use your brains

Although men usually have an oversized ego and don’t really like it if the woman is much smarter than them, they do appreciate a smart woman. If you’ve got brains, flaunt your smarts. Men like mental stimulation and captivating conversation. Because they are always thinking about stuff, they expect you to be able to match their pace. A man won’t date a woman who is not able to add anything to the relationship.
