what she wants in a man

Here is some interesting information from the good folks at Men's Health.com

Top 5 Personality Traits WOMEN want in a MAN

1. Sense of Humor (77%)
Being able to laugh at the stresses of this world is a must, according to the women on our panel. You get bonus points if you can make them laugh. Humor tells a woman that you can laugh at—read, handle easily—the many difficulties that life throws at you.

2. Intelligence (55%)
A worldy, interesting man is a man she likes to show off. Men who are take-charge problem solvers make women feel secure, and men who are always improving are never boring.

3. Passion (46%)
Why have women always melted for musicians? Because rock stars are passionate in public. Women like displays of passion because they're not accustomed to seeing them from men. Get passionate about something: kayaking, impressionistic art, barbecuing, or Habitat for Humanity. It's proof that you care for and about something beyond yourself.

4. Confidence (41%)
A man who feels secure in his own skin makes the woman he's with feel secure. By showing you can handle unfamiliar people or situations, you tell the woman in your life that she need not fear, either.

5. Generosity (38%)
This is more important to women over 35 than it is to those under that age. Generosity, however, doesn't just mean springing for dinner at a four-star. Your willingness to give your time and lend your ear is what women crave.

I think I think some validity to this list. I think ultimately most women...want a man who is a man. Does every man have these qualities? No...but most do. I think some women tend to settle for less and that's where the problem starts. But it's important for a man to show her these qualities. Too many men are busy being somebody who they aren't. Be who you are and show her who you are. And watch what happens...

I'm MCG and I approve of this message :-).

To add to your feedback that "Too many men are busy being somebody who they aren't.", I find that many do even try hard enough. And, they bring along past discouragement thinking that it's acceptable to be mediocre...naw son!

There's some validity, but I think the percentages vary from woman to woman. Passion is very high on my list.
