7 things every woman wants out of a relationship

Every woman craves these things from her man.
  • If having a boyfriend wasn't so great, it wouldn't be worth the headache (and heartache) of dating in the first place. These seven reasons are why women put themselves out in the dating world:

  • 1. Sincere compliments

  • She can be told she is pretty by her friends and her mom, but it means something different when it comes from her man. There's just something special about a "Hey, beautiful" text from him. Hearing exactly what makes her a stunner from her guy is something every woman wants.

  • 2. A best friend

  • Having a good man in her life means she has a built-in best friend to go to that art gallery with. If he's there to stay, there is no way he'd bail if she said she really wanted to go. Friends may not be able to move around work schedules, but she loves the fact that he'd do anything he can to make her happy.

  • 3. Expressions of love

  • Are you surprised kissing made it on this list? Cuddling up to her mister during a movie or having warm hands to hold is a necessity. She can go out to dinner with a friend, but his romantic hair brushes or forehead kisses are just the best. Luckily, he doesn't mind the kisses either, so it's a win-win situation.

  • 4. A partner

  • Not that she can't be a strong and independent woman while single, but something about being someone's girl makes her feel like she belongs. You each have your own lives and own personalities, but it's nice to feel like she belongs with someone; that she's with someone who really gets her.

  • 5. A strong connection

  • You can't quite reach the same level of intimacy if you don't let each other in on your secrets. Spending time with someone who knows the true her is something every woman craves.

  • 6. To feel pretty

  • It's fun to dress up for date night. Every woman likes — even if just a bit — to try out a new lipstick or pair of shoes to impress the handsome man in her life.

  • 7. To feel protected

  • Walking the streets with a man to hold onto makes her feel safe. Having him near makes her feel like there's nothing that could go wrong.
