Universal truths about what men look for

You may think that a man’s mind isn’t that complex in comparison with your own, but sometimes we experience those strange things you women call “emotions,” too. (Yep, it’s true.) So here, very plain and simple (kinda like our minds) are 10 little things we want from you, but are often too darn stubborn to ask for.

what men want from women

1Sex

Admit it -- you saw this one coming. Yes, we want sex. Often. In fact, just about any time and any place. But there's more to it than just sex. We also like other signs of your affection, so hold hands with us or give us a spontaneous hug.

2Honest reactions

Don't fake it with us. We can tell when you do.

3Compliments

Men want to be complimented just as much as women do. When we look good, tell us.

4Laughter

Make us laugh! A sense of humor is a wonderful thing, and a woman with a good one is extremely appealing.

5Acceptance

We want you to accept us as we are, not think of us as someone you can renovate. Yes, we have faults -- but look past them. We want you to accept us for the men we already are and are working to become.

6Honesty

There's no real basis for a relationship without honesty, and it starts when we first meet. If you're truly interested, don't start out playing hard-to-get.

7Space

Don't crowd us. Men like time and space with their friends, and even time alone. Women who require men to spend every minute with them need to get a life of their own.

8Communication

Go ahead and express yourself. Your man may not always agree with you, but it probably makes him proud that you can stand up for yourself. Strong women are sexy!

9Belief

If you love your man, believe in his dreams as much as he believes in yours.

10Trust

If you can't trust each other, the relationship is doomed. Take his word for it and don't constantly check up on him or try to trick him. Trust is respect, and both parties in a relationship deserve to be respected.
