What women really look for in a man?

So as Meghan has found her Prince I thought I would have a little fun and asked some fellow bloggers for their thoughts on what makes the perfect man. Some common themes emerged so if there is a bloke out there looking for love, you have a reference guide of what women really want.

SENSE OF HUMOUR

A sense of humour! I used to have a thing for Chris Moyles and Jonny Vegas because they made me laugh, they’re not the most ‘conventionally’ attractive men!

Someone who you can have a bit of banter with, and doesn’t take themselves too seriously

What attracts me to a man is a fantastic sense of humour, I can’t be doing with anyone too serious plus they just have to be nice. It sounds simple but a nice guy will always be there for you and be somebody you can rely on. https://emmareed.net

Oh it’s all about somebody fun who makes me laugh. Because that will always be there, the looks, money and all that jazz are transient. If his sense of humour leaves him I’ll be off too!

Someone who makes me laugh and doesn’t realise they are handsome http://thequeenofcollage.blogspot.co.uk/

LOOKS

I’m a sucker for well built arms with tattoos!

My friends laugh as they say my “type” would be a hobo – basically dirty and unshaven – but in reality I think a sense of humour, kindness and someone who can be a gentleman beats everything! www.kippersandcurtains.com

He can’t take himself too seriously… and he doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror. I like a mans man, not one of those blokes who goes to get his eyebrows waxed with his Mrs.

Someone I can have an actual conversation with where I feel my opinion is valid and respected. Looks wise, I like tall! The taller the better! Http://inspiregratitudemanifest.com

TEAM PLAYER

I think seeing a relationship as a team effort and long game. My husband is totally and utterly my wing man and vice versa. I ended up marrying the guy of “my dreams” from my teenage diary (piercings, tattoos, bmx rider with his own car ) but I ended up with a lot more than that.

Being a good team mate, my partner is 100% my team mate in everything, hes straight into daddy mode as soon as he’s home from work. That means the world to me, he’s my best friend. He’s got a decent beard too

A partner that steps up and supports. I want someone to make decisions with me and not just have to tell them what is going on.

My husband is honest, loyal and has been there for me over the last 10 years no matter what. This has included a few breakdowns in my mental health, and I am so thankful for it.

Being someone who can get on with anyone because he doesn’t have to like my friends and family but he has to be able to get on with them and be friendly

SHARED INTERESTS

Someone who’s great at sports! I love competitiveness and fitness, so someone who can match me! And always good banter and entrepreneurship

For me it’s sense of humour and sharing similar values or politics. If you’re a funny, vegetarian, socialist then you’re the man for me

CONFIDENT AND AMBITIOUS

Someone confident who knows what he wants in life. I like a decision maker as it shows self-worth.

I’m all about eyes, in particular blue eyes If we’re talking personality then self- assurances is a massive thumbs up for me – I’m basically describing Zac Efron aka the perfect man!
www.mommyandrory.comSomeone secure in themselves there is nothing more attractive. www.sophobsessed.com

Someone with ambition and drive!

Ambition and drive. Very sexy!

.SUPPORTIVE

I want someone who understands that I’m not always perfect myself and still loves me for it. My husband is so patient when I get stressed out about silly little things and he’s always there for me.
http://www.frugalfamily.co.uk/

A man who accepts you for who you are, no matter what size you are, what weight you are. Someone who loves your flaws. Someone who is loyal and has your back 100%.(my husband does all of this)
www.thismummyrocks.com

Someone who stands by me when my mental health isn’t doing so good, who defends me against the bullies and the meanies of the world and of course someone who appreciates the value of a good quiet moment without needing to talk.
www.mummycatnotes.com

Someone who is kind and does not play games. Respects you and has a proper serious conversation when needed.
Http://www.wavetomummy.com

My husband is perfect!!! I fell in love with him mainly as he was a great dad to his kids. I knew he would be amazing for me and any children we might have and I am so lucky and so is our son.

AND FINALLY!

Nothing has changed since in my teens I have always gone absolutely and completely on my emotional response to a man and nothing practical at all – oh it’s got me into so much bother but has been fabulous too https://www.abeautifulspace.co.uk

I used to want a man who could dance, had style and was ambitious – my husband is none of those things! But he is intelligent, funny, supportive and his ability to live in the present keeps me grounded.

What do I think? I will be sharing that tomorrow. How about you? Who is your dream date?

    Isn’t it interesting how everyone is different and yet so many of us look for the same qualities? I really enjoyed this read. #coolmumclub

    We talk about this at work every so often and it’s amazing how many people talk about wanting a partner with a house, car, good looks etc and don’t mention the personality etc. Because, of course, you’ll be spending all your time talking to the car and the house …

    Ha ha – there’s a common theme here that none of us married our ‘dream ma
    I seriously believed I would marry a tall, dark, lead singer of an indie band…I married a short, blonde, slightly camp (but still utterly gorgeous) Olly Murs lookalike!

    Love this list and thank you for featuring my thoughts #MMBC

    I think I would have to agree with a man with a sense of humour. Having been single for a long time it would definitely take more than good looks to sweep me off my feet 😉 #pocolo
