What an honor and delight to have Marriage & Family Counselor and Superstar Blogger, Aaron Anderson sharing his insights with us.
I have recruited the hubby to share his views from time to time to bring the masculine energy and wisdom to our soulful conversations. All the love songs, movies and books out there are about a man wooing a woman trying to win over her affections.
But even though men may want to be loved and cared for, they want to be shown it differently than women.
And despite what the Superbowl ads would lead you to believe, most men don’t feel close to women while drinking beer and watching them dance in bikinis, either. So how do men want to feel loved and what can wives do to show their husbands that they care? Men want a woman who is fiercely independent, who has her own desires, goals, drives and plans how to achieve them. Men absolutely love it when their wives are in tune with them enough to know when they’ve had a bad day and need to be left alone and when they’ve had a bad day and need someone to talk to about it.
Wives often fill their day with so many things with the kids, that when night time comes and it is just the two of them together, the wife has spent all her energy on the children and has none left for her husband.
She forgets what’s going on at his work, what his friends are doing or how his latest hobby is going – but she can probably say exactly what score their oldest got on their spelling test or what boy their daughter likes. Men love it when their wives plan a date for the weekend to go a comedy club or a restaurant and then out for drinks afterwards. Instead of their spouse criticizing them and pointing out flaws (which makes men feel their relationship is on dangerous ground), men want a wife who will be patient with him when he feels challenged by his shortcomings.
A man likes to know that his wife won’t take advantage of his shortcomings and will keep his insecurities safe while he’s working on them.
Even though men get a bad reputation for being the least romantic of the two sexes, they still like romance. They also want to feel like they’re safe in their relationship with a partner who loves them and is invested in them.

It was the feminist dream of the 1960s a€“ a world in which men and women share the load equally. History repeating: Wedding bliss in the 1950sMore than 1,500 adults were asked about the attributes that they a€?most valueda€™ in a spouse or partner.
Nearly 40 per cent said a€?financial stabilitya€™ is one of the most important qualities in their husband and they rank gardening as more important than an ability to cook or clean. Life & PersonalGoa, Goan and culture : Myth and Reality Scripted Love Can a Pet see a Ghost?
The same way we don’t want men asking “are you on your period?” every time you’re in a bad mood, there are things you can say to a man that are sure to start a fight. We’ve highlighted a couple of phrases you should keep out of your relationship, unless you love arguing and emasculating your guy. As a site run by a woman and written for women, I am endlessly curious about the male side of things.

I am so thrilled to add to our male voices with this heartfelt guest post where Aaron tells us the truth about what men really want out of marriage.
Thanks to our hunter-gatherer ancestors, somehow men got stuck with a bad reputation when it comes to romance.
But times have changed and men don’t need to protect against wild predators who are trying to eat their families anymore. Men don’t want to be taken to a good chick flick or watch a movie that makes them cry to feel close to their spouse. Men like that their wives need them but not to the point that their wife relies on them for every small thing – this feels smothering. They like a wife who can accomplish her goals on her own (and will) but invites her husband to do things with her because it means more when he’s there. They may not ask for help when they’re working around the house, but they like to feel like their wife takes care of them everywhere else. Just like women like to be taken out on dates by their husband to be romanced and wooed, men also like to be taken out on dates.
The fact that their wife took the time to plan something they thought their husband would like is a good enough feeling that men often don’t care what they do as long as their wife planned it and thought of their husband in the mean time. And a man especially wants to feel like his wife is supportive of him in his challenges and isn’t using his challenges as reasons to walk away. Underneath is a person who wants to be cared for, loved and take care of just as much as you do.
In addition to counseling, he is also a writer for various blogs and websites all related to marriage and families.
By practicing these 5 tips, we not only create a deeper love and appreciation in our marriage, we are providing the best of role models for our children. Tanya Jackson, corporate affairs manager at the building society, said: a€?A lot of women used to think they wanted a metrosexual man. STAND UP FOR HER:  No matter what happens you will always have to be a man over whom she can depend and rely upon. CONFIDENCE: According to various psychological tests conducted by world renowned universities and research labs, Confidence has been voted as the most important trait that a girl looks in a man. PATIENCE: Patience plays a vital role in the long list(as we have been seeing above) of all the traits that a girl wants in her man!
So underneath their calloused ‘nothing bothers me’ exterior, what do men really want in a relationship? Men want a woman who doesn’t need them but she asks for him to be in her life because she wants him. He is on the Board of Directors of The Colorado Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and is the editor for the Marriage Section of the Good Men Project. According to research published today, most men want a traditional wife a€“ and women are often only toohappy to oblige.In turn, it claims that the husband women most desire is a a€?retrosexuala€™ a€“ meaning they are more hunter gatherer than a a€?metrosexuala€™ stay-at-home father. This is a strong indicator that she can share everything with you and vice-versa and it helps her build confidence over you. You have to understand what she says and why, her dressing sense, her way of speaking, her eating habits, her stature and guess what, you even have to know what are things that make her smile.
Not being loyal can be a major turn off for women and many a times the reason for break-ups and even a divorce.
Both men and women alike but women have got a repository of a lot of things for which they can be and should be appreciated for.
You should be able to change her mood typically when she is sad. Having a good sense of humour indicates that you are fun loving and the girl will never get bored from you. A real man is always ambitious, always in search for something new and something to achieve. This is what most of you have been waiting for! Looks matter a lot, specially more at the beginning. It’s their way to relax and to let know her man know about her, her desires, her mood-ons and mood-offs. But if you’re in any other stage of a relationship and you say this, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. The same way we don’t want to try to make chicken soup exactly how his overbearing mother does, he doesn’t want you to correct him based on what your daddy says.
Because “bitchy” is a word linked with a moody woman, calling him bitchy will emasculate him to the core. You can get his great information about marriage on his Facebook page, by following him on twitter or on his blog the Relationship Rx.

You don’t only have to be compassionate only to the girl or her relatives(which also includes her pets) but also to everyone! You have to have a well settled life and above all a well established source of income till the time you believe that another guy is gonna feed her babies.
If she knows you are loyal, she will be able to trust you under any circumstance but being loyal doesn’t mean that you become her pet dog.
Appreciate her for her beautiful smile, her lovely eyes, her good sense of clothing etc but not too much or it may make her feel insecure and show you as a predator who just wants to get her by flattering. Bigger is the ambition, more will a man be passionate about it. Compelled by her nature, she will definitely support you in your endeavour.
She does not want you to listen to her like a statue with your mouth zipped (though sometimes we cannot be sure about it). Their imagination will likely wander, and it won’t be long before he’s picturing you and your ex rolling around in bed together.
Replace “bitchy” with “moody” and you can have a normal argument without the ad hominem attacks. More than 2.1million women say they do not work because they are a€?looking after their family or homea€™. Though brutal honesty is not required because it shows that you cannot plan out and make your decisions on your own and will always surrender to the whims of the girl which is a major set off for her. Understanding makes her believe that you care for her and in the long run you will be with her when she requires you the most and believe me guys, this is all what she expects from you. Believe me guys this is although not the most desirable yet the most important factor a girl seeks in a man.
It doesn’t mean you gift them a brand new car or a house or a new house every weekend.
They will soon feel relaxed and after that she will definitely reciprocate her feelings by making you feel that she is all your’s. Though she will never say it orally (though some may) but she would show it through her actions. A women always likes to support her man in whatever he endeavours, but without passion there is nothing that you may endeavour and hence a woman may fail to understand her role in your life.
It’s money that will take care of her, her children and her desires and no matter how much you deny, in the present world intelligence is directly proportional to money.
Decision making plays a critical role not only in one’s life but also in the people connected with you and she knows this fact well. Anyone can feel trapped by this phrase, especially in the beginning stages of a relationship. Don’t be surprised if your man is giving you the evil eye for no reason whatsoever after having uttered these words.
Only 193,000 men gave the same answer a€“ a figure which has fallen by 6 per cent over the past year. It’s the best way to show her that you are interested in her and she will respond likewise. Remember that woman care more about their social standing but they do know that money is the thing that guarantees it to them. If you’re unsure about the future with this person, talking about marriage can put far too much pressure on. Being compassionate gives out a loud and clear message to her that you are not only involved with your happiness but also know how to distribute it among others.
Confining and controlling every decision in a girl’s life must not be our motto any more. Money can sometimes play a very decisive role in a woman being attracted towards you and it is increasing day by day. One more important thing to note is that most things that attract a woman towards a man like his looks and intelligence are difficult to work upon. You can never get a new face or a new brain(can you!!!) but these things can be equalised by MONEY.
She not only needs a man who can wipe off her tears but also ask her the reason for her tears.
