What Men Really Want…
What do men really think about dating, marriage and family? Do they want the white picket fence, with the beautiful wife, two kids, and the family pet? Or do they want to be a bachelor who spends their downtime juggling multiple women, feeding their overzealous appetite for sport. To find out what men really want I asked a couple of accomplished gentlemen I know.
Do you believe in marriage?
Absolutely. Barack wouldn’t be Barack without Michele. Marriage is a beautiful thing. The man who finds a wife finds a treasure and receives favor from the LORD – Proverbs 18:22. – Chris
What are your intentions when dating, are you dating for longevity or fun at the moment?
I date to meet and get to know interesting people. In turn I often learn about myself too.– Daniel
Do you believe that both men and women are equal providers within the home?
YES. Personally I can’t be with a woman who doesn’t somewhat agree. Growing up in a single-parent household my Mom worked and paid bills. I don’t believe a woman should pay all the bills, but she has to bring something to the table that we both sit at. – Chris
What are your expectations when being in a committed relationship?
Continuing to always improve and reach for new heights. Growing healthier in body, mind, and spirit. – Chris
Do men look at women’s family history/background when determining if they are compatible?
I can only speak for myself and no, but I look at that stuff to get a better sense of what makes this woman the way she is. – Daniel
What non-physical characteristic are you most attracted to in a woman?
Her mind. I can care less about her nails, hair style, purse brand, vehicle, and outfit if we can’t have an intellectual conversation about what drives her. – Chris
What non-physical characteristic are you least attracted to in a woman?
Close- mindedness and negativity. – Daniel
What is the ideal age to settle down?
No ideal age. It all depends on when Mrs. Right comes across the path. I think if we set an age window then we setting a window where we will settle. – Chris
What morals/values do you feel your significant other should have?
A very high principled moral compass and loyalty. – Daniel
If a woman has a child/children from a previous relationship is that a deal breaker?
Absolutely not. Motherhood is a beautiful thing. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who puts her kid(s) first and takes care of her family. – Chris
