When it comes to women, men want it all. We want a woman who’s beautiful enough to be a model but modest looking enough to not be looked up and down by every man that walks by. We want a woman who is independent enough to be able to buy her own house but dependent enough to make us feel like we’re bringing something useful to the table. Most of all, we want a woman who can perform in the bedroom like an adult film star while also wanting them to have as minimal sexual experience as possible. Basically, we want Beyoncé in Destiny’s Child’s “Cater 2 U” video and as seemingly perfect as Beyoncé is, even she doesn’t live up to the lyrics of that song.
It’s no secret that much of what men want in women is largely centered around their physical attributes. No, all men are not horny dogs looking for a leg to hump. But we are human beings who are very superficial to say the least. Part of it is how we’re built and the other part is how society has taught us to objectify women. To every woman reading this, the first thing he noticed was not your awesome personality or your intelligence. I know you’d like to believe so but in reality, he probably first noticed your curves and worked his way up to your face before you could even articulate your life goals. Don’t be offended. It’s just a part of being a guy.
Though we do place a big emphasis on the physical appearance of women, there’s also a want for substance. As I said earlier, we don’t necessarily want a woman wearing the pants in the relationship but we do want them to be able to pull their weight. Chalk it up to male ego or whatever you want but we just want to be with a woman who can provide all of these things while still allowing us to feel like the man in the relationship.
Now, it would seem as though men have lost their minds with these unrealistic expectations of women but let’s be honest, can you blame us? I don’t think there’s a species alive that doesn’t believe they can have it all or at least want to have it all. Yes, women do the same thing as well. Is it a pipe dream to ever think you’ll find everything you want in a partner in one person? Absolutely. But what’s life without a few unattainable dreams?
