Wish List1 of 9
Think it's all about the size of his... bank account? Ha! Find out what women really, really want in a man.
Say Cheese!2 of 9
Straight teeth have nothing to do with the quality of a guy's smile. Instead, we want a guy with a genuine smile—someone who smiles with his whole face and does so easily and often.
Funny Face3 of 9
A good sense of humor is nice, but what we really want is a man who doesn't take himself too seriously, someone who isn't afraid to look silly and can laugh at himself.
Say Anything4 of 9
We want someone who knows how to communicate, of course, but more importantly, we want someone who confides in us. A guy who can be vulnerable? Fugettaboutit.
Wait for It5 of 9
We want someone who asks us questions no one has asked as before, who looks at us when we're talking, and who takes a moment before responding—not all the time, but at least most of the time.
Good Times6 of 9
Everyone has their off days, but we want a guy who's generally happy. Life ain't easy, so being with someone who has a positive outlook is pretty essential.
Passion Project7 of 9
Success matters, but not always in the way you might think. We want a guy who's passionate about what he does, who works hard, pushes himself, continues to grow.
Here's a Tip8 of 9
A guy should be nice to his mom. That's a given. But he shows his true colors when you're out in public. We want someone who's kind to waiters and tips generously.
Sweet Dreams9 of 9
We want someone who needs us—not in a dependent sort of way, but in a you-make-me-better way. We want someone who goes to sleep close to us and reaches for us in the middle of the night, just to make sure we're still there.
