  • Honesty and openness. If he asks you "what's wrong", don't tell him "nothing" if there is something wrong. If you don't feel like talking to him about it just tell him "I don't want to talk about it right now". If you are mad at a guy and he asks "what did I do wrong", tell him and don't make him try to figure it out on his own and then get mad at him for not figuring it out. I hate when a woman thinks she can outsmart me or manipulate me. To me that shows she doesn't respect to me. Respect and trust is another element. Lastly, sex. The sex has to be fullfilling. I'm not saying a woman has to perform like a porn star in bed, it's a bonus is she can.

    • I'm big on honesty and openness too. In the very beginning, I stated that I make a point to never lie. Now every time I feel like saying "It's nothing." I think about how guilty I'd feel to tell a deliberate lie just to avoid talking.

    • I completely understand and appreciate that. It's weird to see how someone acts different around their friends and family, but then when you're in private they're their truest self. Lazy smiles, relaxed face, cuddling and talking about life and venting even.

    • Show All
    • So acceptance, empathy, and support are important to you. Everyone may be a bit different, and prioritize some traits over one another, but a lot of honest, sincere answers are bound to overlap. Everyone wants to feel that their partners there for them, promise.

    • Pretty much the sum of it, yep. Hope that helps

  • Trust.

    Trust means loyalty, honesty, and openness.

    Sex. You must have sexual chemistry and connection. Fuck waiting until marriage.

    Communication. I need a woman that can communicate like an adult without throwing 3 year old tantrums. A woman must never expect a guy to read her mind.

    Passion. I want to be a woman with excitement and passion to be with me and work things out. I dont want to be treated as just another chore.

  • I believe unconditional love is what a relationship should be. Cliche? Yes. Inaccurate? No. This comes first but of course there are others. I used to prioritise aesthetics over personality but it led to nothing but continuous and repeated heartbreak. You'll find that if you are attracted to someone's personality, you'll start to subconsciously value their looks more. I have an insecurity that I will like a girl more than she likes me. I believe others suffering from this need constant reminding of her love for him. This is an important element. She needs to be vocal with him. This is not ripping him apart for every little thing but voicing her opinions (without judgement) and looking to solve problems. This is an important element. Last but certainly not the least, RESPECT. Mutual respect for each other is paramount for a fulfilling relationship. Listening to one another. And sometimes, guys just want someone to sit in silence and cuddle with.

    Hope this all helps.

  • I'm gonna sound like a broken record for a little bit, but I want to encourage the "girls" of g. a. g. to support each other and comment on other female's questions. I feel the comments are pretty male heavy and it could be much more even.

  • Depends on what kind of relationship you're talking about. Trust and STD free women are in my top five. Without trust, there is no relationship.

  • It will vary from man to man tbh. Not just the what, but how important it is to them.

    For me loyalty, subservience, libido are all important factors.

    • Yes, self esteem. So you don't have to feel like you're always trying to build someone else up when they're tearing themselves down.

  • Trust, empathy, affection, intimacy, courtesy, communication, forgivingness, sacrifice, unconditional love, etc.

  • Well this is an interesting question for me to reflect on considering I just got divorced a couple months ago. I would have to say:
    *Sexual compatibility (for me that's likes sex, not prudish)*
    -Honest
    -Open communication
    -Faithful
    -Mutual Understanding
    -Confidence in who they are and how they look (don't want to tell you you're beautiful just so you can feel better about yourself)
    -Independence, but yet still have some dependence in the right moments
    -Selflessness at appropriate times (it's okay to think about yourself)
    There's probably more, but those are the ones that probably bother me the most
