Have you ever wondered what men really look for in a relationship? Relationships are tough. It doesn't matter if you've been dating for a month or you've been married for 20 years- your relationship will always need to be nourished and worked on.
No one has a perfect relationship, but knowing what men look for in their partnerships can help you get a better understanding of their thoughts and feelings. Plus, these Redditresponses were absolutely adorable:
1. Someone to share time
"As pathetic as it sounds all I want is someone to hold me at night and greet me in the morning, and is there to greet me when I come home, and spends time with me."
"I love love. It feels so special to be the one someone chooses to spend so much of their time with. I love buying gifts and doing cute things... I want someone to be truly emotionally intimate with me."
"I want to be able to talk and trust someone with all my heart. I want to share all my thoughts and all my life with someone special. I want someone, and I want to be someone's."
4. Us against the world
"The level of unspoken connection, understanding, and companionship of a good relationship is unrivaled. You can live in your own little bubble, totally absorbed in each other, and forget the outside world exists. That's not something you can't get outside of a relationship."
5. Common values
"I look for someone who I can spend an entire day with and not ever realize it. I think people often look for people who share common interests, and these people are often pretty easy to find. I however think that it is much more important to find people who share your fundamental core values. Someone who you admire and you can learn from."
6. Make her happy
"You get to be with a girl. You share all the great things in life with her. You get to make her smile and laugh every day. You get to make her feel appreciated and loved. You can share your secrets with her."
"Anyone who's felt something for someone special and had it reciprocated knows the rush of feels you get. It's like an injection of pure, undiluted happiness. Now imagine sharing your life with someone who brings that to the table. Kind of hard to resist!"
8. Know them in every way
"I'm an introvert, I prefer a smaller number of friends but with a deeper interpersonal connection. To me, a relationship is a logical conclusion of that ... spend an entire lifetime with one person knowing them in every way. Sounds fantastic, honestly."
"Even on the days I don't want to see anyone, she's my friend and I never tire of her company."
10. To have someone
"It's nice to feel wanted and needed. It's nice to have someone that desires and loves you for who you are. To have someone to come home to, to have interesting conversations with. Share stories, and make your own together."
11. Crazy in love
"I want someone I'm absolutely crazy about who is also crazy about me... If I'm going to be with someone, we'd better be crazy for each other."
"There's no better feeling than appreciation, and having the person you love give it to you is indescribable."
