This assumption is pretty common but, totally wrong and unfair, when both the partners are together in this thing that we call, a relationship then the needs of both the parties should matter to an equal level.
Since the basic image of a man is that of a person who takes care of everything and everyone, we sometimes tend to skip over the fact that men are extremely emotional in nature and have their own sets of wants as well as needs.
When it comes to relationships, men tend to always have a set of needs and wants that need to fulfilled by his lover to be able to make her, his ideal mate.
Wonder if your man is happy in the relationship?
Here are a set of needs that are always on the mind of men who are in relationships: -
1. Acceptance and Respect
One of the main things that men tend to require from their partner is the fact that the person that they love and care for, with all their hearts must accept them as they are.
All humans have flaws, even heroes tend to have one or the other tragic flaws and hence, this should never fault the love of one partner towards the other.
In fact, men tend to flourish in a relationship and accepted where they feel respected as a unique and important part of their partners’ lives
2. Sexual Fulfillment and Affection
Human beings along with being social creatures also tend to harbor animals in themselves and at the end of the day, we all as humans have needs in terms of the physical front, these needs need to be met in a relationship along with their need to belong and to be loved, appreciated and held through tough times with pure affection, these needs are what make a man as human as they come!
3. Support and Attachment
You heard it right, we usually believe that men love being solely individualistic.
Well, That is extremely wrong as even men love to feel like they can depend on their partners in a relationship, they love to feel like they can tell their beloved anything and everything because at the end of the day, it is their sole purpose to form and establish a true attachment with their partners, they need to feel loved and attached.
4. Loyalty and Honesty
This one is pretty obvious when you’re in a relationship and are seeing someone, one of the main and most basic yet, extremely essential things to keep a note of is that you are loyal to them and are absolutely honest with them because this is what the base of the entire relationship is built upon and being truthful and loyal to each other, genuinely strengthens your love as well as your entire relationship.
5. Individualism and Communication
Let’s face it, sometimes when you’re in a relationship, you tend to start overpowering your man’s life and waiting up his personal space because you want all his attention. When his eyes are seen shifting off of you, you get majorly jealous and the same causes a fight, we’ve all been there!
This is because you really are in love with him, of course, however, if you do not give your man room to be himself and breathe, he will feel suffocated and soon find ways to escape you and the relationship as a whole.
What Else Do Men Want In A Relationship?
Men have very tender egos. They like continuous reassurance about themselves, their career choices, their effectiveness as partners, their sexual prowess, and of course their attractiveness. Though men don’t need too frequent verbal praises like their female partners, they do love you to show this kind of gesture. Men also feel respect as a form of love. If a man feels that you disapprove of him, his choices in career, or the things that are an important part of his personality, he would find it difficult to trust and love you. Men and women both connect to each other through sex and healthy communication. However, for women, verbal communication works better while men connect better through physical intimacy and sex. Men also connect through your hints of sexuality that make them feel that you like being close to them. From their childhood, men are taught that they should never appear emotionally weak in front of anyone. They should never complain, never share fears or concerns, and should avoid expressing self-doubt or worry. For a man, the woman in his life becomes his haven. Men like to have a partner to whom they can expose their weaknesses and their softer side.
The only way to make sure you both are on the same page to solve all problems is communication!
Communicate with him you will really see everything improving for the better.
