In this article I will teach you how to attract the man of your dreams by explaining what qualities men are looking for in a woman and how to make him feel special. I will also present the key factors you need to look for in order to determine if he is the man of your dreams.
What are men attracted to?
“Physical attractions are common, but a mental connection is rare.”- Unknown
There are two types of beauty: the one defined by society, which changes over time and your unique beauty, which emerges through your behavior and the way you carry yourself.
Nowadays, the way you look has a big influence on how much attention you get. Women crave attention, so they spend their whole lives concentrating on their looks. This leaves little room to work on their personality and behavior, which instead could bring long-term attraction.
Men won’t commit to a long-term relationship based on someone’s looks. Attraction is an emotional reaction. The way you carry yourself, you charisma, self-confidence, energy and unique traits are more important than your looks.
Think about how many times you were attracted to a man that looked nothing like ‘your type’. You were attracted to his unique and special traits.
In this aspect, men are not different from women. When they are ready to commit they look for more than just looks. They look for someone who is kind, nurturing, sweet, confident, elegant, positive etc.
Superficial attraction is exactly that- superficial. Real attraction is created through personality traits, behaviors and unique characteristics. Learn more about the qualities that men are attracted to here.
Men love to be challenged
”Men want a challenge, but they want a challenge they can win.”-Whitney Gaskell
Men love to be challenged. Confidence, high-standards and values are traits that keeps a man interested. If he thinks he can have you regardless of how he treats you, he will become less interested.
On the other hand, appearing difficult to approach and aloof is a breaking deal. Men fear rejection so if you are too much of a challenge they won’t approach you.
Moreover, if all you have to offer is the chase, as soon as they get what they want, they will get bored. They are attracted to the chase, not to the person they are chasing.
Men chase women that have values and high-standards, not the ones that are hard to get; women that ask for time and respect, not the ones playing mind-games and tricks.
Show your interest in a subtle way, but let him approach and engage with you. This way, he will become interested in getting to know you better.
Men are attracted to women that have their own friends, hobbies, interests and passions. They don’t look for other’s approval and live an independent and fulfilling life.
A man wants the woman that no one else can have, not the one that he can’t have.
When is the best time to have sex?
“Sex is an emotion in motion.”― Mae West
This is one of the most frequent questions women have when it comes to dating. Most women believe that the amount of time they wait before they have sex will determine whether their partner will engage in a long-term relationship.
When it comes to sex, there is only one rule: wait to establish emotional connections with the man you are dating. Whether emotional connection is established on your first, 10th
or 50th date, depends on the dynamic between you and the man you are dating.
Emotional connection is established through sharing values, having meaningful conversation and sharing experiences. However, avoid talking about your ex-boyfriends, your weight and your insecurities.
How to make him feel special
”The greatest marriages are built on teamwork, mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration and a never-ending portion of love and grace.” -Fawn Weaver
- Recognize and admire his uniqueness
Men like to be admired and praised for who they really are. Complimenting a man on his unique traits will make him feel special. When a man feels special and admired in your company, you will become special to him.
Praise his qualities, not his achievements. A man wants to know that you will stay by his side and still admire him even if he loses everything.
Be specific about the things you admire about him. He will feel special and unique. Men like to feel that you see him different from any other men in the world.
- Be his best friend
Support his goals, be there for him when he needs you the most and stand by him. Work as a team and don’t compete with him.
- Let him protect and provide.
Men need to protect and provide in order to feel fully accomplished. They need to feel that they offer you something that you couldn’t get from anyone else.
Even if all you need from him is emotional support, let him know how much this means to you. Men’s self-worth diminishes when they feel they are not bringing anything special to your life.
- Support and believe in him
When a man feels that you support and believe in his abilities and success, he will strive harder. Believing in his dreams when he doubts himself is the most important gift you can give to your partner.
Is he the man you want?
“A true relationship is two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other.” – Unknown
We discussed how to attract, keep and make the man of your dreams feel special. However, the most important thing is to establish if he is the man you really want.
When you are in love, you consciously or unconsciously choose to ignore red flags that were there from the beginning. As the relationship progresses, you discover more things you don’t like about your partner.
It is essential to analyze the relationship from an object point of view and make a decision based on facts, not your dreams or fantasies. Find out why these stages occur in relationships and what you need to know to find true love here.
In order to identify if he is the man you want, you need to pay attention to the following:
- His values – Make sure you both value the same things. Values are important when it comes to relationships. If you value completely different things, you will encounter conflict.
It is almost impossible to find someone who always has the same values as you do. As long as you both value working as a team, growing together, are willing to commit to your relationship and work through your differences, you are on the path to succeed in your relationship.
- His standards – It is important to look at someone’s behavior in order to establish his standards. He can talk about his ambitions with passion, but never takes any action to achieve them. Having different standards in life will create issues in a long-term relationship.
I hope this article has helped you understand how to attract, support and keep the man of your dreams.
