Every guy expects certain things from a relationship. Some guys are just looking for one night stands but guys who are really looking for commitment start dreaming about certain aspects for a relationship before they’re even dating. It’s similar to a girl’s dream of a perfect wedding. Men have fears and quirks and many other things.
Here are some of the things men expect from relationships.
Men really want you to have your own life. They want you to have your own set of friends, activities, and passions. So let him roam too. Let him have his own time. When he returns and notices your ever-welcoming attitude, he will be more than happy.
Men do want a dual life but they also love to sneak out a bit every once in a while. As long as it does not affect your relationship, let him avail his freedom. It is beautiful what they say about couples, “Let’s put your relationship on wheels. One is yours. One is mine. And together, we’ll ride.”
2. Being an Open Book to him:
Men are mysterious but at the same time, they are straight-forward and honest about themselves. They want you to communicate directly; treat them the same way. They don’t get clues. They need things spelled out.
Without clarity, relationships are built on sand. Explain it to them. Model how you would like them to communicate back. They need you to tell them. Be clear to them, share the important moments of your life with him.
3. Every bit of Your Attention:
Most of the women do not express themselves, presuming that men do not appreciate too much expression. Men want to know what is going on in your heads. Be honest and reveal yourself. Couples grow and get stronger overcoming adversity, not by living life separately.
Know that every time you hold things in, you are building walls inside the sacred space of the relationship. Men need every bit of your attention just like you need theirs.
4. Loving them for what they are:
Unconditional support from women is what snaps men out of their boyish behaviours and injects them with a desire to be a stronger man. Only when we accept men as they are, who they are, only then will they want to become someone better.
Inside every man is a boy who forgets he’s a man sometimes. And every boy gets into things, not because he’s bad but because he’s got a curious mind and a short attention span. Don’t love them for their face but by how you feel about them.
5. Quality Time with their Ladies:
Men and women both connect through intimacy and communication, but generally, women connect better through verbal communication and men connect better through intimacy. Men express their emotions through sex & not just by saying ‘I Love you’ but by showing it with their actions.
The situation is different for women but in order to understand what your man is trying to say, you must be used to spending that ‘quality time’ with him. Every man expects that from a relationship.
6. Letting men be men:
Let him be what he is. Don’t change him for your sake. He might be irritating at times, try to love him more in that phase. Love, itself, is an unconditionally implied feeling and women tend to understand it better than men.
Therefore, a man secretly expects women to be the settlers, the ones who understand everything. Let your man be himself, it will only make you lovelier in his eyes.
7. Be the savior:
They want to be your Superman. They want to carry you in their arms and show you the world. Or, at least, feel that way. And they know it’s their job to get there, but nothing gives them more strength than a woman who creates a space that makes them feel invincible.
If you make them feel invincible, they’ll make you feel like you’re the most beautiful creature on this planet.
8. Workout together:
There’s nothing sexier than working out with your intimate partner. Watching you sweat and work on your body only encourages them to work on theirs as well. They get to see the raw and real you, a different type of naked.
Now, if they do this together, they’re in the act of building something, a lifestyle. They’re not just talking. They’re doing. And that’s hot.
9. Make incentives:
Be each other’s inspiration. Never let your partner feel down. Possess a unique power to inspire him. Let him feel your positive energy & don’t let him feel inferior by your behaviour.
Motivate your man & be a part of each & every moment, whether it is a great situation or a bad one of their life. Every man expects unity from their companion before they enter a relationship.
10. Show it out!
When you are with your partner, be present. Look at your partner — in your partner’s eyes, if you can. Listen. Care about what your partner is saying and feeling. Be responsive. A lack of presence indicates that you are disconnected from both yourself and your partner, so if you want to connect, you need to learn to be present in the moment with your partner.
That is one of the most desirable things for him in a relationship.
The majority of men who are bored of their relationships are not dull themselves but it is the women who kill the excitement. While some of the women are really good at keeping up with a relationship, a great lot fails at keeping it exciting.
Guys expect a relationship to be exciting. Intimacy, movie nights, cuddling and tickling, cooking together etc. are little things that every guy expects from a relationship. It is natural for men to crave happiness.
