As much as a man can search for the perfect woman, it's hard to tell exactly who she'll be. Most men can fall in love with every beautiful woman that walks passed them on the street. So how do you determine what woman might be right for you? The best thing to do is know what you're looking for by naming the qualities most important to you. This is not a list of exact requirements though, no woman will ever fit everything you're looking for. Rather, they'll fit qualities and characteristics that you hope for. Here are six common qualities that can help you determine your soulmate:
There are many types of humor. What is funny to one person may completely bore another. So even though a woman's friends say she's funny, it should only matter what you think of her. Does the woman of interest laugh at your jokes? Does she make you laugh? It's hard to really change one's humor. As time goes on, someone can understand the subtleties of another person, but if the big jokes aren't clicking, do the small ones matter? As stunningly beautiful as a woman might be, if she doesn't have you crying from laughter by the first few dates you might have problems in the future.
You and the woman of interest must be able to understand each other through a mutual agreement of reason. In any relationship, you will have disagreements, it's bound to happen. It's important to be with someone that can listen and understand you as well as voice their own opinion to help settle an argument. If your significant other refuses to listen and an argument is never fully put to rest, it will cause problems. This isn't to say you must always agree on everything but at least understand and respect each other's point of view. You can both believe the toilet seat was left up by ghosts, as long as you both understand and mutually respect each other's reasonable opinion that ghosts exist.
No man or woman in a relationship will be exactly alike. You'll both enjoy different activities and hobbies. What's important is that you both respect each other's hobbies and even go as far as join the other every so often during such activities. If your significant other enjoys hunting yet you're a vegetarian. Problems might arise. If you find crocheting a completely laughable hobby and she loves it. Future issues will occur.
Every man needs a companion that will show cohesive style. That is to say you're both dressed for the occasion you're attending. If you're a man deciding to follow Owen and Fred's Guide to Gentlemanhood
then you won't be showing up to every occasion in jeans an a t-shirt. So why would your girlfriend? Style is about dressing appropriately for the occasion. If you've decided to take an early-evening stroll, overalls and flip flops probably weren't a good decision for you. As for her, a short dress and six inch heels can't be comfortable. Just like you, your significant other should understand not every situation should be treated as a fashion show. A great quality of a woman is one that knows how to dress appropriately from extra fancy dinners to afternoon gardening.
INTELLIGENCE FOR CONVERSING
My next article for Gentlemanhood is going to be positive qualities of a good conversationalist (as I've already covered how to feign interest with a bad one
…). There's a lost art in holding a good face to face conversation. Most of our time is spent on computers or phones that we forget how important they are. But when you're with you're girlfriend, you're going to need to hold face to face conversations everyday. You'll want to find someone that can share with you as well as investigate into your own life to enrich and fulfill each other with pleasant conversation. This could be the most important of qualities because without good communication a relationship is lost.
Simply, find a woman that's honest. Even when it's something they think may hurt. Without honesty a relationship is doomed. If you feel as if the woman you're dating isn't giving you the whole truth, especially from the start, it's going to cause bigger problems down the road. Start by being honest yourself, admitting that you need complete honesty and keeping strong to that commitment. It's the most attractive thing you can do.
These aren't secret scientific discoveries people have been hiding from us. These are basic repeated qualities of any good person. You can easily switch this article to "finding the right man" and it would work just as well. Sometimes we need hear these things though. To remind ourselves that people like this are out there and the best way to find them is to reflect those same qualities you're looking for. Don't take this as the ultimate list of qualities. Take this as a starting point of who you should be and what you might find enjoyable in someone else.
