1. Ability to hold conversations

Men love to talk too: they value conversations with the one they love. No man wants to come home to a wife with whom he has nothing to say. He wants laughter, real talk, serious talk, engaging stories.

2. Mutual physical attraction

A man wants a woman who wants him and he can lust after too. He wants to remain faithful to a sexy woman who connects with his kind of sexiness.
