7 Things Husbands Really Find Attractive About Their Wives
It's a fact men are visual creatures. If you're at a bar, a man will likely approach a woman who is aesthetically PLEASING to his eyes, as opposed to a woman who has a great personality. Of course, once a man does approach said well-endowed woman, if she is lacking in stimulating conversation- her boobs will probably not be enough to keep him interested. In fact, according to my husband, said large breasted woman while she might be visual eye candy for a man; those assets alone are not nearly enough to sustain a long term marriage and deep seated attraction.
He says: "Any man will tell you, the physical stuff while titillating at first, wears off after the initial infatuation stage of a relationship-- so a woman has got to have a lot more to keep her husband invested in their relationship than just her boobs and other outstanding physical attributes."
I say: "Well said, that earns you another night out of the dog house. So just what was it about little ole me that you found so absolutely breathtakingly sublime? In other words, how is it that you found it absolutely impossible to live without me these past 15 years?"
He says: "We compliment each other, it's as simple as that".
I say: "That sounds like a lovely statement, but I need details, back it up."
He says: "You do things that I don't like to do. You clean the toilets, cut the kids' nails, clean the goop around the dogs eyes, wash the kitchen floor."
I say: "Wait it sounds like you like the fact that I'm a housekeeper; were you secretly attracted to Alice from the Brady Bunch?"
He says: "That's mean. No, I just like that you like things clean and orderly it's not something I'm good at, and well, it makes you that much more irresistible to me."
I say: "So aside from my housekeeping prowess, anything else that makes you want to rip my clothes off?"
He says: "I like how you treat other people; you really care about the welfare of others. That's a quality that is really attractive to me."
I say: "But what do you think keeps husbands really attracted and in love with their wives?"
He says: "A woman who takes care of herself, physically, and cares about the way she looks."
I say: "Ah I knew that appearance thing would be a factor."
He says: "Listen it's always nice for a wife to look good. It's a primal thing- it keeps me attracted to you on a physical level and every marriage needs that primal attraction."
I say: "So, in summation, tell me the key ingredients; what a husband really finds attractive about his wife?"
He says: "The way she mothers your kids, the way she cares about others, a good cleaner and yes someone who cares about their appearance".
But here's the thing; my husband is just one man so I put the call out there to other real men and asked them what they found attractive about their wives-and here are the top seven that caught my attention.
#1 She is my best friend with whom I have "safe harbor" to talk about anything- John Wilder
#2 Gets excited over my accomplishments- Peter Calabrese
#3 By example she has taught our kids to give rather than receive. As such we have four amazing, self-confident, successful children. Now that's sexy! Joseph Shrand, MD
#4 Intelligence. I like how my wife is constantly learning new things and using her talents. We have fascinating conversations because we both love to learn and teach each other new things. I feel like our kids are so lucky to have a smart and interesting mom- Michael West
#5. Her humor, she has this wonderful sense of humor, we can always joke around- Bert Martinez
#6 Confidence. Some men prefer women with low self-esteem, but not me. A woman who is sure of herself, knows when to be assertive, and is out-spoken at times is very attractive in my book. Thus, when my wife takes over a conversation or orders someone around or stands her
ground to her friends, it really turns me on!" - David Bakke
#7 The way my wife smiles when looking at me as I am giving her a foot massage is so attractive to me. She has that look in her eye when she smiles that makes me melt- June Archer
So husbands have you got any to add?
