As professional matchmakers and relationship experts, we at The Dating Source have learned a thing or two about men. Yes, men are the simpler sex for the most part. Here are the top 3 things that men want in a partner:

 1)  Men want Attraction and Passion– Men aren’t as scared of relationships as women might think. However, they are afraid of being in a relationship where there is no passion or sexual chemistry. As women already know, men are very visual. It may be partially biology and partially society influenced, but it is a fact. All men want an attractive woman by their side.

 2)  Men want Women Who are Happy and Playful– Men develop bonds by doing shared activities, while women develop bonds through talking. Here is where many women lose men who they otherwise could have kept. Men assume that by talking about your problems or concerns you may be one of the drama queens that they so adamantly want to avoid. Talking about family issues, problems at work, or ex-boyfriends, may make you feel better but it will only serve to drive him away. You will never talk your way into a man’s heart. A man will bond with you with the experiences you create with him. Besides being attracted to your appearance, he needs to be attracted to your personality. When you have fun and laughter together, he will want to spend more time with you. So, let your playful side show!

3) Men want to be Respected and Admired– Men want to be the best they can be for themselves and for their woman. They have been taught since little boys to compete, bury emotions, and earn rewards for being strong and smart. Therefore, you should not nag, blame, or criticize your man. It will never get you anywhere. When things go wrong, as they often do, show that you have faith in him. When things go right, appreciate the efforts he expended to make you happy.
