This is an important tool for the later years of the relationship. Flirting is essential to keep the romance alive. Men love women who will flirt with them. This makes a man feel wanted and makes him feel that his woman is still attracted to him.

3. Occasional show of feminine side

Men prefer women who keep in touch with their feminine side. So, sometimes it is good to go for a bikini wax, or invest in new lingerie’s. Men like to be motivated by their women, so they enjoy the idea of women initiating the romance. Women should also make their men feel needed like the strong alpha member of the house.

4. Just as they are

A man loves a woman who can adjust to the situation, and more so to his surroundings.Nagging is a big mood turner for men so try and avoid it. Men hate it when women want to change them or their surroundings, this can be a totally spoiler for the romance. So, accept them for what they are, and they would love you forever.

5. Honesty

Honesty is a good habit to bag, whether to attract a man or not. Men search for honesty in their partner and honest answers turn them on. When a woman is honest with her man it makes him feel the special bond between them. Dishonesty is not good for any relationship, whatsoever, leave alone a romantic one.

6. Love for sports

What kind of man does not enjoy his girl drinking beer and foul-mouthing the opponent's team with him? This is a quality which drives most men mad and makes them fall in love with their girl.

7. Need for personal space

While a woman will enjoy a lifetime of cuddling, a man will always need his own space. It is just how they were designed. A man needs his ‘me’ time or his ‘buddy’ time to re-energise. So, instead of making him feel suffocated with a constant hovering around, give him some space and spare him the smothering.

8. A smart woman

A woman with brains is highly in-demand in the man’s world. Though men are visual creatures and get attracted to the ocassional 'damsel-in-distress'; yet it is always a woman with brighter brains that will take the better man home. Sense of humour in a girl is appreciated by her man. So remember, smart is the new sexy.

Now, you know some of the things that men secretly desire in their partner. So, ladies, take a few pointers and gear-up to be the ‘girl of his dreams’.
