10 Qualities of the Perfect Girlfriend

My previous article discussed the 10 qualities women look for in men, but what about what the guys want? Just like women, men have certain personality traits they look for (or should look for) in their mates. Some women might think guys are only looking for the hottest girl they could get, but with the really good guys that isn’t the case. Of course, physical attraction will be key at first, but it’s when they dig a little deeper that guys get a better sense of whether or not a girl is girlfriend material.

No two women are the same, but the following 10 qualities are ones that any woman can and should have. For the ladies, take some notes and see how many of the below qualities you have.

Confident & Independent

Ever hear that phrase confidence is sexy? Well, it definitely holds true with guys. Guys want to know that you are confident in yourself and your abilities. They don’t want to constantly reassure you about things that seem so silly to them. Women who are able to take pride in themselves are more likely to win a man’s heart. Also, women who are able to hold their own and don’t have to rely solely on their partner for every little thing are keepers in a guy’s book. Sure, you don’t want to have too much independence in a relationship, but a little bit of it here and there will make life easier for the both of you.

Laidback & Fun

Girls who are stuck-up and snooty are a major no-no for guys. Guys tend to be laidback, so it makes sense that’s a quality they want in a girl. A girl who is down-to-earth and able to hang with the guys will go a long way with many men today. Guys want a girl they can have fun with and just chill with no matter what they are doing. It also helps when the girl is open to the guy’s idea of fun, be it hiking in the mountains or just hanging around watching the game at home.

Honest & Loyal

Just like the ladies, men want a girl who will be 110% loyal and honest with them. Men get a bad rep for being cheaters, but girls do it too. A girl who is able to be completely honest with a guy and is devoted to him is a keeper. No one wants to suffer heartache because of a cheating partner, so it’s important that both parties in the relationship are in it for the long haul.

Mature & Supportive

Guys could care less about the petty drama that some girls deal with, so keeping that at a minimum is important. It’s true that some guys mature at a slower rate than women, but that doesn’t mean they want an immature women. Guys tend to be more easy-going than women, so having a woman who is mature enough to avoid those situations is important to them. In addition to being mature, men want a woman who supports them wholeheartedly. Maybe it’s going to their flag football game or supporting them during a rough patch at work, but no matter what it is a guy wants to know that his girl has his back.

Appreciative & Caring

Everyone likes to know what they do is appreciated. So, of course, men want a woman who appreciates who they are as a person and what he does for her. No one wants to waste time on someone who could care less about them, so ladies make sure you let your man know how much you love him and all that he does as often as possible. Not surprisingly, research shows that couples who show more appreciation towards each other are happier.
