What men want in a woman is someone who is the motherly type. This isn’t because all men have an Oedipus Complex (I’m kidding), it’s because men unconsciously look for a woman who is nurturing for a number of reasons. One of the reasons goes back to the desire to have a wife who is going to be a good mother to their children, but there are two other reasons that are worth mentioning. Most women aren’t aware of these two reasons, even though they normally exhibit the behavior that supports these reasons every day. Let’s discuss why we men like the motherly type.
1. Mother of our children
Men are biologically wired to reproduce and further their own generation in a woman. This woman has to be healthy so that the children she bears are also healthy and strong.
Whether us men like it or not, we also like choosing women who are like our mothers. We grow up being raised to be comfortable with our mother’s style of rearing children.
2. Multitasking Queen
Mothers typically are masters of multitasking. They have to raise kids, keep the family happy, have a career and most importantly, look after themselves. Us men would be nothing without a woman who can multitask since we can’t even breathe and eat at the same time.
This probably isn’t a characteristic of a mother that you would first think of being associated with being a mother, but we all know that it’s important. Us men don’t only find it attractive, we rely on it, heavily.
It’s not easy being a mother. Women always get the short end of the straw. From the moment the child is conceived to the moment that they graduate from college, the mother plays a more dominant role in the family than the father does.
Men are attracted to women who are strong and if they are the motherly type, they probably have what it takes to be a good wife to us. As much as us guys like to embrace our role as the strong person in the relationship, we do actually rely a lot on women to be strong.
What men want in a woman is someone who is going to be a good mother in the future. Anyone who’s had a mother would know that she’s one of the strongest people they know and a great multi-tasker, important qualities that help a man make sense of his own life.
