She does not have to be gorgeous, rich and famous, but she does have to live her life from a place of meaning and purpose. That purpose can be anything as long as it means something to her. She is the type of woman that has not waited around for Prince Charming to rescue and build a life for her. Instead she created her own personal kingdom. As Mr. Right comes along, she finds a way to merge their worlds without giving up everything she has created.
It’s the oh-so-common mental glitch that can prevent love and happiness.
This means she does not drop her friends, family and life purpose simply to become a part of his world. She knows how to blend the two without losing herself. When a woman is clear on what she wants, she does not waste time with situations or people that do not fit into that model. Men are attracted to this because they want to know up front if they are a contender. When a man encounters a wishy-washy woman who is not sure what she wants, it signals to him that she does not know who she is and because of that may end up not wanting him next week, next month or next year.
15 Signs You're With A Good Man
In general, men are not natural communicators. Therefore, they want a woman who speaks to them in a concise and straightforward manner when it comes to expressing her needs. They want to avoid navigating through a woman's feelings in order to interpret what she's saying. He likes it when she directly tells him what she wants and how he can best deliver it.
His goal is to make her happy and when he has the information on how to accomplish that, he feels more confident that he can do it. A man wants to be able to feel like he's the man and that the woman in his life thinks he is the greatest. He wants her to respect him for who he is, not what he does or how much money he makes. The bottom line is that men who are emotionally healthy are not looking to be with a woman who emasculates, bosses or controls them.
These men are looking for a woman who will treat them well and with respect and admiration. Throughout history, men have fought wars and built empires. However, they have done it on their own terms. When a man feels a woman needs him out of desperation, he questions her real interests.
However, when a woman does not need a man but desires him, he knows she wants him for who he is rather than what he can do for her. Men do not want emotional drama queens who use their feminine wiles to manipulate them out of their time or money. Dealing with emotional outbursts, sneaky ways and pushiness does not go over well in the long run with a man. He wants a woman who is emotionally stable and authentic in both her words and actions. He is not looking for a spoiled little girl who is ill-equipped to handle the ups and downs of life; he is looking for a woman.
Yes, it's true! Men want a woman who is comfortable with her sexuality, enjoys sex with him and is not afraid to let him know. A man looks for a woman who will positively respond to his desire for her instead of rejecting him. This is especially true when he is looking for a wife, as men do not want to sign up for a lifetime of bad or dispassionate sex.
Although men and women are different in how we think, communicate and express our emotions, one thing that's true for all of us is that we desire to love and be loved.
Gender equality is not a ‘women’s issue’ – it’s good for men too

Finding A Good Woman Is Hard!
The price tag was a long-term commitment to provide for a woman and children. But today, sex is cheap. And that changes everything. Sex got cheap because of three technological developments: the advent of the Pill, which divorced fertility from sex; the onset of mass-produced, high-quality pornography; and the arrival of online dating sites, which make it easy for men to find willing sex partners.
Sexual liberation is a fabulous thing — in some ways. But it can also turn men into louts, because women don't expect much in return for access. Today, most men can have all the sex they want for very little cost — no fancy dinner required. The irony, as Mr. Regnerus writes, is that today's mating market is probably more dominated by men's interests than ever before. When women complain that marriageable men sober, steady good providers are harder to find than ever, they may well be right. The marriage rate is falling steadily, especially among the lower middle class, while long-term stable marriage is increasingly a privilege reserved for the better off.
A lot of women seem to have their act together these days. But a lot of men don't.

What might explain this puzzling fact? Men don't have to prove themselves as providers any more. They can get all the sex they want anyway — including online porn on demand that can make the real thing feel mildly disappointing. Ask younger women about men and porn. You'll get an earful.

Like it or not, women have always been the gatekeepers for sex — not because they don't like sex, too, but because no matter what you learned in gender studies men's sex drive is innately higher. This means it's up to us to make the rules. It drove me crazy when he said that. Now, it's dawned on me that he was right. Since the women's cartel collapsed, women's bargaining power has seriously eroded.
That's why so many single women hate Tinder, which has further commodified sex for the benefit of men. Women are just another consumer good in the shop window.
It may take a village to raise a child. But it takes a village to raise a husband, too. And modern society has largely abdicated from the job. Regnerus writes. Time to get our act together, ladies. If we don't, they won't either.
