The great question

I think your question should be "What does this particular woman want?" No two women are alike. I am not like the people who answered this and they aren't like me. What I want may not be important to other women and what another woman may not matter that much to me. I, myself, want honesty and communication. I simply cannot stand men who keep everything inside and won't communicate with me (and I am married to one of those guys!). I obviously want respect and to be treated like an equal because I am. I truly believe am exactly 50% of a relationship and both I and my husband have to work 100% at making things work. The most important thing you can do is to find out what the woman you are interested in/married to/whatever wants. No two are alike. Like snowflakes!

The one thing that women do not want from their man is to be taken for granted. This is hard for a man because once married we tend to go back to our lives and jobs. Now we put more effort into that job than our marriage. Big mistake. I made that mistake with my first wife and she hung in there for 37 years. But what I could not hear another man gave her and we divorced. I am married again and she lives alone. I no doubt am making the same mistake with my second. No man is ever going to truly understand what women want. The reason is because we look at life so differently. Most men I think are able to compartmentalize their life. They have their job, they have there wife, they have children, and perhaps are social in other ways. None of these are tied together except for wife and children and a man is fine with that. But women tie it all together with her being at the top of the pyramid. If she does not come first he is in trouble. Very hard for us to understand that because we love her just as much but it is just different. If you get the perfect answer to this it will be the first time in history. LOL

As a woman, I think it can hardly be pinpointed to one single thing. But I guess one of the things that most women want from men is for men to be attuned to their wants and needs. And I guess from there, men can learn more about what the women in their lives really want.
