7 Things Women Need in a Relationship


I want to talk about the basics today. Things that we ladies need in our relationships in order to function. Things that some may be aware of, but most are not. Let’s face it, ladies. We love the men in our lives. Sometimes they get some wrapped up in work or their daily lives that they sort of forget to give us the things we need. It’s not that they intentionally do this, it just sort of happens. Regardless, it’s important that they are aware of these things. Just so they can keep in mind that regardless of how tired they are at the end of the day, we still need them. Here’s 7 things that Women need in a relationship. They’re basic things too. Things that every relation should be founded on.


Honesty & Transparency 

Women want to men to be honest with them. They want to be a big part of their lives. The most important part, in fact. They wants to know about everything going on in their lives. Not so they can judge, but so they can walk through life with them. They are their partners after all.  As far as women are concerned, they are one – his life is her life. It can sometimes be hard for men to open. I think sometimes they feel that by shutting us out and keeping really difficult things from us, they are doing us a favor. Really, it just creates a divide.


She wants you to know every aspect of her. The inside and out. The good, the bad, and the ugly.  Why? Because only then will you love her for who she really is. Every woman needs confirmation that they are worth loving. We may not all need such a confirmation of our value, but we all want it. But it’s more than just that. Having someone understand you is having someone completely know you for the person that you really are. There’s no confusion, there’s no misunderstanding or misconception.



A lot of people try to take care of themselves. Not realizing the toll that it can take on a person. As human beings, we aren’t always in the right mindset to care for ourselves. To top it off, that’s usually exactly when we need the most caring – when we aren’t mentally or physically capable of doing it ourselves. She wants you to be there when her burdens are simply too much to handle. I know it sounds silly, but the street goes both ways. If she’s willing to help ease your burdens and make your life easier, she wants the same in return.


Physical & Emotional Strength

No woman wants a physical or emotional weakling. It is simply against her nature. That doesn’t mean you have to be the size of Schwarzenegger, or have the emotional maturity of Sigmund Freud. She just wants to feel that when she’s in your presence. She wants you to be intelligent and to practice self-control simply because you can. She wants you to be strong not for the sake of being strong. She wants you to be strong for her. It brings her pleasure, makes her feel safe and turns her on. Do I need to say anything else? I didn’t know so.



A woman wants a kind man whom others will look up to, appreciate and aspire to. She wants a man that is filled with compassion. She doesn’t see being good and compassionate as a weakness. And that’s because it’s not. A lot of men are raised to believe that compassion is for the weak, and the only way they should respond is in anger.  That’s very unfortunate, but it’s simply the world we live in. She doesn’t need that. You don’t need that either. No one does.


Sense of Security

I’m not talking about being a millionaire. Most women don’t need you to sitting on a bed of cash to be happy. Well, for some women that might be the key to their heart. At that point, it’s up to you. Generally speaking, the right woman will love you for who you are. For rich or for poorer. True loves should not be dictated by the number in someone’s bank account. That being said, she does need you to make her feel secure. She wants to know that she is safe from physical harm when she is with you. She wants to know that you’ll keep her safe, healthy and comfortable. Is she incapable of protecting herself or bring home to bacon? No, but it’s nice for her to know that you are capable of doing it.



We want to feel special. This has to do with the enormous egos that we all carry. We want to feel unique and better than everyone else. Women want a man who sees the whole wide world in her. She’s not stupid. She knows she’s not the most beautiful woman in the world. She just wants you to think/know that she is. She needs you to think she is God’s greatest gift to humanity. She wants to be the best and she wants a man who will let her be.


There you have it. The 7 commandments of Womanly and Marital Living. It’s actually very simple stuff. Simple, and yet it’s stuff that needs to be worked on constantly. Otherwise, your relationship will go down the drain. Thanks again, ladies for reading my post. It means the world to me. Now go show this to your husbands!
