10 Things Every Chick is Looking For in a Bro They Want to Date
One woman’s ex is another woman’s treasure. We all have differing opinions about what makes a man, “good boyfriend material”. Some of us prefer the strong but silent types while some of us prefer the loud and cocky guys. But there may be a few characteristics that we can all agree on, that seem to make a man worth our time.
As I sat pondering how my friends and I can all be so much alike and yet have such varying tastes in gentlemen companions, I began to nail down all of the things our beaux had in common. But my group of girlfriends are a bit, ummm crazy, so I thought I should ask some other young women what they look for in a man. So I set up a quick survey asking women to rank ten characteristics from most important to least important, tweeted the link to my 60,000+ twitter followers and the results were surprisingly unsurprising.
1. Sense of Humor: This was ranked number one, above honesty, loyalty and financial stability. Good news boys, as long as your funny you’re going to be a-okay with the ladies! Now the results of this survey might be a bit skewed considering those surveyed follow me for the lewd and crude humor I provide but ultimately I think this rings true. Humor is an indicator of intelligence and creativity to women. And thankfully men and their delicate egos like a girl who laughs at their jokes.
2. Honesty: Now this is a pretty ambiguous adjective. Does she want you to honestly tell her what you think of her new bangs? Or explain that her trendy harem pants look like she’s wearing a diaper? Maybe she wants you to voice how smokin’ hot you think her best friend is? But probably not. Unfortunately, when she says she’s looking for honesty, she wants you to talk about your feelings and openly communicate throughout your relationship. Also, honesty is the arch-nemesis of lying, which by their mid-twenties, they’ve heard plenty of.
3. Loyalty: I’m going to go out on a limb and lump loyalty and faithfulness together. Loyalty doesn’t mean she wants you to sit at home waiting for her like a puppy dog. It means she expects that you’re not scamming on other girls when you’re not with her and that you’ll always support her no matter what she’s going through, or what a bitch she is when she gets her period and how much chocolate she eats.
4. Sexual Chemistry: I was surprised at how highly this characteristic ranked. Apparently it’s more important to be able to climax with a man than it is to carry an intelligent conversation with him. But since “good looks” was not an option to be ranked, I can understand why ladies felt the need to emphasize that you have to find someone physically attractive for a relationship to work.
