In the comments on yesterday’s post on desirable traits in a woman, Jack from Sigma-Frame posted up his own list which he published a year ago. He made a bit more of an effort than I did as he actually took the time to explain his thinking, whereas my list is a take it or leave it and if you don’t understand it then I don’t give a shit compendium.
But I like his list a lot. Particularly number 7:
She is generous in her estimations of the motives of others. She assumes that a man means the best, and not the worst. Men like a woman who interprets his words and actions in a positive light, and who forgives the occasional stupid move, or uncouth remark in a casual conversation.
This is so important that I can’t believe that I forgot to include it. I have been with women who have this trait and women who lack it and the difference is a life of bliss or misery. Be uncompromising on this one.
I also want to point out number 16.
She likes to laugh (at his jokes). Humor is an indispensably valuable trait in a relationship. Men aren’t interested in women who crack jokes every other sentence. In fact, men want a woman with a sense of humor that matches his own, so that he can elicit a joyful response from her rather easily. In other words, men want a woman who thinks HE is funny. Not surprisingly, when she does think he’s funny and laughs out loud, the man will always find that to be very sexy.
I have been with very hot women in the past that I have become bored with after a few days. Invariably they lack this trait, and for me this is a deal breaker as I cannot summon the will to spend time with someone if they don’t share and delight in my witticisms. This is not about seeking out a funny woman, (women aren’t funny), in so much as it is about a woman who revels in the absurdities of life. In other words, she can laugh at herself.
