Girls do think alot and What Girls think about Boys is not less than a mystery. Let’s admit it. Women are mysterious beings. As a woman, I can assure you that it’s not just you who is confused about what your woman wants.

Sometimes, we too don’t quite know our hearts. If you have never been in with a woman before, there’s a whole unexplored world for you. 

Or if you are new in a relationship or have been dating for a while, chances are, there are still things you probably don’t know about your woman. “What do women want”, scream as much as you can, but the truth be told, it’s quite simple. Brace yourselves, I am here to help all the confused folks out there with the answer to What do girls like about boys.

1. Good listening skills can provide you with a deeper level of understanding

Good listening skills can provide you with a deeper level of understanding about someone’s situation, and helps to know what words are best to use or which words to avoid. As simple as listening (and acknowledging) may seem, doing it well, particularly when disagreements arise, takes sincere effort and lots of practice.

Remember that you have two ears and one mouth for a reason. This means that you should be listening more than you are talking. It is more beneficial to listen than it is to talk.

When listening to girls, boys engage in the conversation and make eye contact so that girls know that you care about what you are saying (even if you don’t care, it is still polite).

People who listen more are more observant and therefore more thoughtful and have a better understanding of things and

if you are a boy reading this and want to be a good listener here is what you can do to improve yourself:

1. Be interested and attentive. Girls can tell whether you are interested and attentive by the way you reply to them or does not reply. Forget about your phone and other distractions. Maintain eye contact to show that you really are with the girl.

2. Encourage talking. Some girls need an invitation to start talking. Girls are more likely to share their ideas and feelings when boys think they’re important.

“Listen to your girl as though you have plenty of time.”

3. Listen to nonverbal messages. Many messages girls send are communicated nonverbally by their tone of voice, their facial expressions, their energy level, their posture, or changes in their behavior patterns. You can often tell more from the way a girl says something than from what is said. When a girl comes in obviously upset, be sure to find a quiet time then or sometime later.

4. Hear girls out. Avoid cutting girls off before they have finished speaking. It is easy to form an opinion or reject girl’s views before they finish what they have to say. It may be difficult to listen respectfully and not correct misconceptions, but respect their right to have and express their opinions.

2. Sense of Style – Do not confuse it with looks

What a women likes, it totally varies from one person to another, from culture to another culture, and from one country to another.

However in my opinion style for me will probably NOT mean how to dress (Getting the correct fit of clothing) or Always match your belt with shoes or colour of your socks should match your pants, or Sporting bare ankles or wear (sun)glasses that compliment the shape of your face and express your personality.

Nothing like the things i said above will reflect a style in you if you are meeting a girl like me. However your style will be reflected by:

1. The way you talk to a girl (most of the girls instantly judge boys by way of their talk)

2. Sense of humor. A sense of humour denotes Strong Male Leadership and Social skills.

3. Strength. Either physical or emotional. Preferably both. Some girls like “gentle giants” though.

4.Intelligence. Most girls I know are super attracted to smart guys. And if the guy is really gorgeous but dumb as a door knob, the girls get over them quickly.

5.Kindness. Yes, some girls are attracted to jerks. But they’re a masochistic minority. Most prefer a guy who could be nice to their mom and puppies.

So here you got your style my boy !!!

3. Relationship with Parents

How you give and receive, it is greatly influenced and shaped by one or two critical people in your life: YOUR PARENTS

Our first experience with this emotion is with our parents, and those early years set the bar for how we see, give, and receive love and what we want out of relationships later in our lives.

So if you meet a guy having a good relationship with their parents i can tell you he will never intentionally hurt you. Because they know how to show affection and stand a better chance of developing happy and content relationship with others in their life.

A guy who has secure relationship with parents learns to regulate emotions under stress and in difficult situations.

4. Obviously Loyal

Sometimes it’s a gut feel– a woman’s instincts, as they call it. At times, it works for their advantage while on some occasions, it’s just them being a downright paranoid girlfriend suspecting their boyfriend why he is not answering our calls thrice in a row.

However loyalty can’t be explained in words. And nothing can prove that your man is loyal to you if you yourself is in doubt about his loyalty.

But here are some of the hints that you should think about and understand loyalty in your boy and whether you should doubt for his loyalty or not:

  • He never keeps a secret from you, no matter how small.
  • He has female friends, but he set clear boundaries with them.
  • He has good morals.
  • He doesn’t mind doing anything for you.
  • He stands up for your relationship.
  • He never puts himself in situations where he is tempted to cheat.

And most importantly:

  • You survived a long-distance relationship.
    Being in a long-distance relationship is no joke.  We’ve heard countless times of couples breaking up due to distance. It’s hard and scary. But it was the love, loyalty, and faithfulness you gave towards each other that would help you make it through the everyday challenges.

5. Passionate about something

Passionate boys usually come off as having a lot of self-assurance and certainty in the things they say. They seem so clear on all their values and goals, and where they stand on the issues that are important to them.

Have you ever listened to a boy speak passionately about something and you became totally unaware of what was going on around you, lost track of time, and became absorbed by their presence?

Most people lock their passions up in a box, letting only a little bit out when the environment seems safe to do so. We live in a society that is so far from true passion that people release their tension by screaming into their pillows at night, and locking their room doors to dance where nobody can see them.

People work at jobs they hate, staying there only for the money to buy things they don’t really need, hang out with people they don’t really like, and to do things they don’t really like to do. It’s amazing, and they continue to follow the rest of the crowd, and it’s almost the blind leading the blind.

This may be an extreme case, but every one of us still holds back on many of the positive things we truly desire.

Women don’t want a man like this, they would do anything to meet a man who knows what he wants and does whatever it takes to get it.

6. Understands personal space

Here are the things that will tell you why it is important for boys to understand personal space and how it will benefit girls also :

If a man understands his personal space

  1. Allows Them To Think About Their And Your Interests :
    Being alone gives the individual time to think about themselves – what makes them happy, process their thoughts, deal with what is troubling them, and relax without thinking about responsibilities.
  2. Prevents Clinginess In A Relationship
    It fosters independence within the relationship, with neither of the partners being too clingy.
  3. Strengthens The Relationship :
    Being two distinct individuals strengthens a relationship by keeping the communication channels open and building trust. It also prevents boredom from setting in and keeps things interesting between you two.
  4. Avoids Co-dependency In A Relationship :
    Spending too much time together or being dependent on each other to have a good time is unhealthy. This leads to a co-dependent relationship that can turn toxic soon.
  5. Improves Communication
    Fostering your individuality in a relationship brings about good communication between partners and helps keep the spark alive.

7. Expressive, because you need to tell it

Well no girl can read minds except if she is born with some superpowers. So everyone in this world shoud be expressive so that other person knows what you want to tell them and what’s on your mind.

But if a girl understands what is going inside your head without being told, she still wants you to ne expressive. Expressing your emotions to your girl will make her feel important and special because you dont express your emotions to every other person you meet.

So my friend….You’re human. You’re not a robot or a dinosaur. You’re human. You have emotions, and those emotions are the things that will help me connect with you. I’ll look for them. Hopefully you’ll be more emotionally mature than I am so that we’re not both falling apart, but if you repress your emotions, they WILL come back to bite you (and me) in huge explosions of anger.

There’s real feelings in there besides just the aggressive ones— joy, quirkiness, shyness, that embarrassing boyish excitement, even sadness and fear. They’re all important, because you’re a person. What’s a relationship, without emotion bringing people together?

8. An opportunist who can take a hint

It has nothing to do with feminism. No matter how much your woman likes to be in control, she would always appreciate the first move from you. This fact will never change. What girls like about boys is recognizing a good opportunity and grabbing it. Girls don’t like having to tell the boy what to do when. It’s that one look or the brush of skin or a lingering smile, and you should take the cue. Knowing a woman’s heart without exchanging a word is insanely attractive.

9. A good support system

If a boy creates a safe space for you, then you are truly blessed. If not, have you ever wondered why you don’t feel safe, supported, and loved?

“The best possible thing you can get out of a relationship is that you’re with someone who encourages you to be the best version of yourself every day.”

When we’re lost and confused, we often look to external influences to make us happy. We’re all guilty of it. And when someone truly loves and supports you, they challenge you, stand beside you when you need them, and give you the space you need to roam free and grow as a person.

They will never judge you or put constraints on your mind, your physical body, or any of your dreams. They will be a cheerleader for your cause without being a groupie. They’ll go to the other side of the world for you when you need them, but they won’t smother you

10. Some level of Patience

Being able to keep your calm is a treasurable virtue. If you are having a heated argument, or you feel that your girlfriend is over-reacting, or you are simply stuck in a situation where you had no control over, deal with it patiently. What girls like boys are the ability to not lose their cool, no matter how much the matter goes out of control. Women go through various situations in their lives which makes them tick off easily. Then it’s their hormones which gets the better of them on an unfortunate day.

11. Spontaneity

All relationships are fun in the beginning. It is after the honeymoon phase gets over that boredom begins to seep in and unless you’re spontaneous, things are not going to get any better. Women find spontaneity and unpredictability incredibly attractive. Who doesn’t like some excitement and adventure in life? They want a man who doesn’t need to make ‘plans’, one who takes life by the day. They want to be surprised every time they meet you, they want to know you’ll be up for any plan at any time of the day because lets face it – the best things happen when you’re least expecting them.

12. Being Articulate

Being able to talk freely in front of people without getting awkward and jittery is a skill you really need to start developing right away. Being a smooth talker really is one of the most underrated qualities in a man. Nothing gets a woman more hooked on than a man who knows how to hold conversations and express freely without feeling shy. There’s no bigger turn off for a woman than a man whom she just doesn’t connect with.

13. Romancing

Women are appealed by romance instantly, don’t be creepy ,be romantic and you’ll do just fine. Romance is bold, it shows how important your partner is for you. So, do something romantic the next time she comes over!

14. Sensitivity

Women believe sensitivity is a strange concept to most men and that is exactly why they fall head over heels in love with a man the moment he shows his sensitive side. They want to know the man they’re going out on dates with isn’t a chauvinistic prick! They want to know he knows the gravity of a situation and who is understanding and accepting towards all kinds of people.

15. Good Smell

Okay, hear me out first. There is good enough reason to put this factor in this list. Forget anything else, you need to be first approachable before you are liked. A foul-smelling man is a deal-breaker for not just any girl, but for any human being ever.

So your first job is to make sure that you don’t smell bad. Then make sure to put extra effort to smell good. But don’t end up smelling like a perfume bottle. What girls like about boys is that subtle smell, mixed with his masculine scent, creating a whirlwind sensation inside.  If you smell perfect, you can be assured that she will stick around long enough for you to do your magic.

A woman loves a gentleman. Do everything humanly possible to show your love to her. Once you have her, isn’t the end. Put efforts into your relationship daily. At the end of the day, do whatever you can to make her happy and she will return the gesture. So to conclude, what a girl likes about a guy, is when he knows how to love her right.
