So what makes the man? I went searching for a list of the most desirable traits in men, and found a list that had been compiled by readers of an on-line magazine. The list was made up of the qualities that women want from and what they look for when they are considering choosing a partner.
When choosing a partner, establishing a relationship or just meeting new friends, you tend to look for traits that align with your own. It’s unlikely a relationship will move forward or be positive to either partner if you don’t share similar values and qualities. You need to share the same values on trust and even your approach to cleanliness and how you plan to raise your children, but some people may also look for qualities that they consider missing in their own life. People who are introverted may look to personalities that are ‘showy’ or extroverted, people who are impatient, may consider patience as a virtue.
The qualities on the list came from a list of the best qualities in a person, but tweaked a little by readers to include other attributes they considered missing. Once the votes were in, the list was re-organised to include reader submissions and re-order the list according to what makes the ‘perfect man’. It’s almost impossible to know if a potential partner has any of these attributes the moment your eyes meet across a crowded room and you get that first spark of interest. The connection at that stage maybe purely physical or something they say may resonate with you. These listed traits are those you look for as you get to know that person better.
So what is the best quality a man can have? What are the most important personality traits in men? What are the top qualities a good man has? Some people would say that the best quality a man can have is his patience or strength. Others would argue that a man’s best quality is his independence or free spirit. Defining the top qualities for men is highly subjective and will change from person to person, but this list of the greatest qualities for men to have seeks to take opinions from a variety of users and compile them into one list highlighting the best qualities in men.
Here’s the top 25. Now I just need to find out where the men with all these attributes are hiding!
