Women all want to be pampered. Men sometimes forget what need to be done to please their woman on a fundamental level. With such a hectic modern lifestyle, it is too easy for any man to be so busy that he lets what is considered to be ‘small things’ slip to the wayside. Over time, this can cause serious pressure on our relationship. ‘Small things’ to men may well be very important to the fairer sex. There are five basic items that all women want and need to experience consistently from their partners. Keeping these five items in mind is important. If you continue to ignore what is fundamentally important to your partner, you can soon find yourself without one altogether. If you find your relationship filled with less passion, less zest, or feel it has become more tense or distant, then perhaps you need to reconnect with some of these basic principles of what a woman wants.
No. 1 Thing that Your Woman Wants from You – Your Time
Before anything else can be established or built upon, a man needs to give his woman some time. If you cannot find time to focus on your partner or wife, then you are likely not going to have a partner or wife for very long. Remember that giving her some of your time does not mean devoting entire days, weekends, or full weeks to her. Taking out a little time each day is all it may take to let her know that she is important and worthwhile to you. As men we can sometimes become very withdrawn and “loaners” without feeling any discomfort. It is simply something we are comfortable with. Conversely, a woman is generally more communal, but she is often aware that you enjoy your “alone time.” Showing her that you value her enough to take time out of your personal time for her shows her that you care. You would be amazed at how useful and easy-to-please a woman who has been given her fair share of attention can be. Even if you feel that you already give time and it should be appreciated, just try showing that extra effort now and again, to better your current relationship.
No. 2 Thing that Your Woman Wants from You – Caring Gestures
Any guy would hope that his partner or wife already knows that he cares; however, a man must remember that showing it or saying can do a lot to make his partner feel wanted and cared for. Again, men can forget that just because they do not have to hear it or see it all of the time does not mean that their partner is the same. Women should feel validated and shown that they matter. While each one may need a different amount, making sure you at least take the time to show it now and then goes a long way. Showing that you care does not have to mean making grand and over-the-top gestures by any means. Instead, it can be something as simple as a self-written card or note, a simple bouquet or flower, a moment of eye contact and verbal appreciation, or a mixture of all three. It can take as little as a minute, but when done with sincerity and clarity, it can make any women feel validating in her choice in you as a partner.
No. 3 Thing that Your Woman Wants from You – A Sympathetic Ear
While men tend to enjoy a confrontation, an argument, or sarcastic verbal altercations, women are much more likely to want someone to confide in on a regular basis. Men tend not to need someone to use as a sounding board all too often, and are accustom to friends and loved-ones giving them a hard time even when they are being sympathetic. Women, on the other hand, tend to crave someone who is willing to sit and listen to their frustrations, fears, and concerns, and give sincere effort to understand their side of the issue. Men are not always the best at expressing their understanding. In fact, sometimes as a man, a partner’s problem may be downright impossible to understand. Luckily, for any man, it is not the concern of the woman that he truly understands. Instead, what matters is the effort put into attempt to understand, and if nothing else, the effort to simply listen to the problem. Sometimes your partner just needs to vent the problems so she can work it out on her own. Or perhaps there is no solution at all and she only wants to let out her frustration. Any man that is willing to lend a sympathetic ear to her problems has a great opportunity of sustaining a lasting relationship. Just make sure you do not feel the need to solve the problem for her. You are a support system and a listener, not a teacher or mentor unless expressly asked to be.
No. 4 Thing that Your Woman Wants from You – A Good Time
Do not fall into the trap of becoming too comfortable to the point of thinking that you can just sit around every day and never do anything new. Women who have men that simply sit around and never take on a fun new adventure from time-to-time can become frustrated. It is important to take the time to show her a good time every once in a while. Women will often become concerned that they are being taken for granted or that they are the cause of the progressive sloth. To stay this effect, make sure that you treat her to an exciting and positive experience every so often. Not only does it show her that you want to experience life as a couple, but it helps you grow closer as a couple.
No. 5 Thing that Your Woman Wants from You – Sincerity
No matter if you are focusing on one or all of these aspects, do each with the utmost sincerity. If you attempt to give your partner your time, do not groan, moan, and complain your way through it. Only attempt these kind gestures, good-time adventures, and listen intently when you are going to do so because you truly want to. If you do not care enough to do so with all of your attention and effort, then the effort is lost altogether. Being sincere is another way of saying being honest. Honestly trying means more than almost anything, even if your attempts fail from time-to-time.
