7 Personality Traits in Men That Women Love

Posted in: , ,

by Amber Oliver

In today’s world, it’s so hard to find a guy that totally “gets you,” isn’t over-confident, has no player-like tendencies, and has all the qualities that would make him perfect boyfriend material. While no one is ever perfect, there are some personality traits that would make him come just within reach, or at least perfect to you! In my opinion, these personality traits are something every guy should possess if they want to be perfect boyfriend material and become the one you want to be with for the long haul!

1. Honest

Dishonesty is such a big, big deal breaker. No one wants to deal with a guy who constantly lies about his feelings, whereabouts, friends or anything else important. And, yes, that includes little white lies too, because if he lies about liking your outfit, there’s no telling whether he feels he can lie about something else! I (and I assume you ladies too) value the truth, in all situations. It’s always the number one determining quality that I look for in someone I’m dating when deciding if he has all the right traits to be perfect boyfriend material!

2. Intelligent

Intelligence is such a huge turn-on. Instead of trying to impress you with corny pick-up lines, he should be trying to impress you with knowledge. Intelligence is so important because it lets you know that he can make smart decisions and inferences, form thought-provoking opinions, and carry interesting conversations. There is nothing worse than a guy whom you can’t have a decent conversation with. You guys should be able to learn from one another and expand as people.

3. Open-Minded

Open-mindedness is such a good quality to have. If someone is willing to try something new, is open to innovative ideas, opinions, adventure, different styles and just an overall willingness to accept things without a cloud of judgment hanging above, he is a great guy in my book. If the guy you’re crushing on or already in a relationship with has this personality trait, then I’d say he’s a keeper!

4. Humorous

Laughter is one of life’s simplest pleasures. A guy that can make you laugh in times of heartache, times of depression or embarrassment, sadness or despair, or even just a regular day, is a guy that will help nurture a healthy relationship. Not that he has to be a jokester all the time, or a class clown per se, but a guy that can make light of the situations that might be difficult for you can surely make you feel a lot better. Laughter is a powerful medicine after all.

5. Caring/Thoughtful

I know I always want to look for someone who has a caring nature. I want to make sure that at the end of the day, he’ll be there when I need him, and that he’ll actually want to be there. Nothing is worse than being in a relationship, or getting to know someone and realizing that the only things they care about are themselves! You want to know that, should you ever need solace or comfort, they’ll be the shoulder you cry on.

6. Ambitious

Does your guy sit home all day eating Cheetos and playing video games on the couch without ever thinking of doing anything else? Then, that’s definitely a warning sign that he might not have the right qualities that make him perfect boyfriend material. Now, I in no way bash gamers, but he should want to accomplish something in his life. Whether that is goal is to be a lawyer, entrepreneur, businessman, or even a professional video game tester, he should at the very least have a plan to get to where he wants to be. His future and plans for such should always be on the horizon. Or else, you’ll be moving on, and he’ll be holding you back!

7. Understanding

A guy that is understanding is a guy who listens. Wouldn’t it be great if every guy listened AND retained the information you told him? Well, there are a few who do, and that definitely sets them apart from the rest. You want a guy to understand what you’re going through or the opinions you have, even if they don’t necessarily agree with them. Understanding is such an essential personality trait because it lets you know that communication between you two will go more smoothly than someone who refuses to see your point of view.

These are only but a few great personality traits that help you determine whether he might be perfect boyfriend material. Among amazing traits that I look for in a guy, I’d also like him to be charming, adventurous and of course compassionate. What personality traits do you feel make a guy perfect boyfriend material?

  1. I want more than these but it would be cool to find a guy with all these qualities, plus God, a total package.

  2. Nice one, and I like that it's almost de same as d one for women.

  3. I agree...................think i got God

  4. My huband to be is all of the above and then some.....i thank God everyday for blessing with such a wonderful man and from a good home.

  5. I'll like to add that though these are really important required traits every woman likes, there are those that is totally unique to every woman and in most cases those are the once each woman is looking for in her man. So, the thing is, a man must study, observe and ask questions to be able to know his woman uniques needs.
