What does it take to be a perfect girlfriend? What do men want from their girlfriends anyway? These are questions that every woman has.
On one hand, no girl should change completely for a man. But on the other hand, some change is good for both of the partners.
Nobody is perfect, anyway, but we should all reach towards improvement.
So, we thought it would be interesting to get inside a man’s head for a day and see how they picture their perfect girlfriend.
We invited some boys for a cup of coffee and we asked them several questions about girlfriends and the things they like about girls.
Here are the five best answers.
Alan Smith from New York, 22
Alan appreciates when a girl is independent, not only at work but in private life, too. For him, the girl has to be able to take care of herself. His ideal girl is someone stable, a girl who will not let anyone play with her emotions.
Mathew Johnson from New York, 28
Mathew doesn’t like “bimbos” and he thinks that it is not okay to tell women that any man would prefer a bimbo over a smart woman. In his opinion, this is not what the majority of men are looking for in a girl. The profile of his perfect girlfriend is a smart woman with many skills and high intelligence.
Ted Jones from Denver, 25
Ted’s answer is very interesting! Ted said that he has been in too many relationships that ended because of dishonesty. He believes that partners should tell each other their needs and he would respect that more than hiding bad feelings from him.
He advises women to be straightforward because men can’t read minds. Moody behavior is not helping when something is wrong in a relationship, it will only make things worse. “Sit down and talk about what is bothering you. If your love is strong, you will resolve it in no time.”
Paul Davis from Los Angeles, 29
Paul stated that in his opinion, boys respect their girlfriends way more that their girlfriends respect them. The perfect girl for him is a girl with whom they would have mutual respect. “Respect isn’t a one-way thing, it goes both ways.”
Another thing he needs in a relationship is support. Instead of criticizing men in front of everyone, show them your support. That makes men feel important. They want their girl to support them and to trust their judgment when they argue with someone else.
Gerald Moore from Boston, 24
All Gerald wants is a girl that will give him more space. Many girls believe that this is the best way to keep a boyfriend. Others are just mean and bossy. “But eventually, the man will wake up and leave only because he wants more space.”
If you don’t trust a man don’t be with him at all. Being bossy will only provoke him to turn a new page. Give him space, and he will want you even more. Just try!
So what is your opinion? What is the perfect girlfriend like? Maybe perfect is the wrong term, no one can or needs to be perfect.
But do you think these five answers will help you in your relationship? Will they make your boyfriend happier?
