Now, I know that you have probably heard it all or even read it. That the best qualities in a man, are the one who will make you laugh, the one who will listen to you or the one who cheers you on and supports you. I agree, those are some of the qualities that you should look for in a man, but those are a bit old-school, if you get what I mean. 

There is no need to repeat what you already know, so I decided to write some qualities with a twist. What I have in mind is, a woman who has established herself, she knows what she deserves when it comes to love and she has her life figured out. With that in mind, here are a few qualities she should look for in a man.

A man with something to bring to the table

Mostly, men always ask women what she has to bring to the table, because they can provide and everything else that is needed, they can cater for. Now the tables have turned. This days, there are many women who are independent and they feel they do not need a man. But when loneliness kicks in, there is no other option that to look for that man. If that is the case, look for a man who will bring value to your life. It might not be money, but it could be spiritual, it could be a business that you could both grow or it could be a land that you could both build on. 

A man that will compliment you

By compliment I do not mean telling you you are beautiful and all that. What I mean is a man who aligns with your plans and you align with his. A man whose future plans go hand in hand with your future plans. Case in point, if you want to get married in a span of 5 years, look for a man whose plan is to also get married in a span of those years. And not just any man, but one you can see yourself with and who you wouldn’t mind spending your entire life with. There is no need to waste each other’s time if there is no hope for a future together. Time is money and it is something that you can never get back.

A man that will make you want more

Last but not least, when it comes to matter of the bedroom, look for a man that will make you want more. It might be hard to tell just from the looks of it but it is important to know. A man who is keen to know how you like it, how you want it and what will make you get into the mood is a quality you need to look for, trust me. There are scientists who have proven that there are hidden benefits of sex. The endorphins and oxytocin released trigger pleasure centers in the brain that eventually help in warding off anxiety and depression. Who wouldn’t want that?

This are just but a few qualities, it will all depend on what you are in to. My friend one told me that we are all trying to navigate the world of love, whether you are married or not. That we don't always get it right but we always work through it eventually.
