Tbh, there are many traits that could be considered masculine or feminine. I can't really put it on a scale. I don't like huge, macho guys, or guys that act like jerks because they don't want to appear weak. I like guys who aren't afraid to show their vulnerability. So in that regard, I would say less masculine, but on the other hand, I want someone who is strong enough to lead me in a relationship, and someone who makes me feel safe and protected. I don't want to feel like equals in that way, because I'm a more timid person, so I like to just take the lead. But I want to be equals emotionally/mentally.
Can you define what you mean by feminine and masculine? People have differmt definitions.
I like for my partner to be strong curious inquisitive sensitive and not afraid to express feelings not play games communicate honestly be compassionate enjoys physical activity and physical affection.
I don't consider that feminine or masculine. Just a good hums being.
I don't really know what these words mean. Are we talking traditional gender roles? So my enjoyment of making repairs around the house and my skills in the quantitative sciences are masculine, and my desire to talk about everything and fondness for small children is feminine? I tend to think of everything about myself as feminine because, by definition, they're characteristics of me, a woman; and likewise everything about my boyfriend is masculine, including those things we have in common. I'm heterosexual, so what appeals to me about his body are those secondary sex characteristics, but I don't know how to have a preference about the personality traits - I want to date men who have things in common with me and who treat me well, and that doesn't seem particularly gendered.
I have quantified anything about how "masculine" I want a potential mate to be. Here is what I do want: - he initiates (in the early stages) - he is chivalrous - he has a life plan - he cares about his appearance and is stylish - he can open up about his feelings - he maintains close relationships with friends and family
I don't think there is a masculine feminine spectrum on these things. We all have "masculine" and "feminine" traits.
I'm not a fan of traditional relationships so I would want a traditional woman. I still think a woman can be modern and feminine though but a lot of people see femininity is traditional for some reason.
