What A Woman Wants in a Man

5 Things Women Want Most in a Man

 Read more.

Time: Of all the things we talk about women wanting, time with their spouse is it. The vast majority of women in happy relationships get 30 minutes of uninterrupted time with their husbands eachday. Twenty-four percent of women who claim to be in unhappy relationships spend fewer than five minutes a day with their spouses.

Appreciation: Nowadays, women take care of the children and make salaries, and they tend to be very underappreciated. Women should be expressive of what makes them feel appreciated, saying “these are the kinds of things I like … x, y and z.” Men should listen, and women should tune in when their husbands are appreciative.

Understanding: It’s important for women to have men who understand them. It’s also important for women to help men understand how to listen. Men often don’t have a clue they’re being bad listeners. Women have to sense a time limit to conversation.

Fun: This is one of those things that often goes out the window, especially after the first child is born. All the factors like jobs, rents, mortgages can add to relationship strain. Couples should set up a date night – once every week, even if they are tired, during which they spend a minimum of two hours alone. During this time, the couple should talk about everything BUT work, money and children.

Kind Gestures: Hugs, kisses, unexpected telephone calls to say ‘I love you.’ Simple things. I suggest five touch points a day for one week – any kind gesture that takes 30 seconds or less. If a man can do this for his partner for one week, both will be amazed at how much better they feel in the relationship.


We had a great conversation with Catherine Kruppa with some advice for Thanksgiving and "how to not put on the pounds this Turkey Day" - she also has some healthy recipes to share!  <click here>

Good morning K-Love team,

I wanted to share that I think it is very interesting how one aspect of our lives (as the 5 things listed above) can compare and impact our lives in other different areas.  As you have listed the 5 things a woman desires out of any man, these are the same factors that I sought out of my supervisors when I served in the military, which gave me the greatest job satisfaction.  Of the 5, in my opinion, I think the most important are time, appreciation and understanding.  When you nuture these 3 in any area of our lives whether it be in marriage, between friends, family or even is a job setting, it produces satisfaction and growth beyond measure.  Looking back, I remember that it was not the pay, rewards or military recognition that I sought from my supervisors, but their time, appreciation, and acknowledgement that allowed me to grow "exponentially" in my military career.  Thank you for the great service all of you do as the "K-Love morning team."  I enjoy listening to you as I drive to work which I have to do right now.  Wish all of you a blessed day.

Very respectfully,

This comment is in relation to the genetics piece that was aired around 9:15am. It was stated that scientists now believe compassion was genetic. I believe it is a way for scientists to explain the unexplainable.I am not a big fan of genetic theory,in my opinion the only thing that I know can be attributed to genetics is childbirth. If your parents had children, there is a good possibility you will also. I wonder how they would explain Jesus as He had no earthly father and I doubt if Mary contributed anything genetically.  Following thyroid cancer I gained a considerable amount of weight and as a result I contracted type II diabetes among other things. It took me a number of years but I finally lost the weight and no more diabetes, that isn't supposed to happen with hereditary diseases. Twenty-two years ago I was diagnosed with COPD and except for a cough have not had any symptoms in over 20 years, that is not supposed to happen either. In fact, scientists say it is impossible. As a 64 year old candidate for ministry, I firmly believe the Jesus makes the impossible, possible and what I get from my heavenly father is heriditary.
