How do you know you’ve found the guy you want to spend the rest of your life with?
Are you wondering if you’re making the right decision?
Now don’t get me wrong, love is an absolute necessity in a marriage.
You have to be madly in love with your man in order to marry him (or else risk the chance of falling in love with someone else when you’re already married).
Aside from love, though, what are the qualities you absolutely must have in your future husband?
Well, Capricorn ladies, here is the must have checklist of important qualities to look for in your future husband.
This is more important to women over 35 than it is to those under that age.
Generosity, however, doesn’t just mean springing for dinner at a four-star. Your willingness to give your time and lend your ear is what women crave.
Pay attention. A woman feels safe and secure when she knows her man will put down his BlackBerry and listen to her. Magic words: “I’m here. Tell me everything.”
Romance appeals to a woman’s right-brained, less-logical side. Every woman fantasizes about being swept off her feet.
Romance is bold because you’re displaying your desire for a woman and revealing a softer, more vulnerable side that women find irresistible.
BEING GOOD IN BED
It’s not just the orgasms. A woman knows that a man who takes care of her in bed will take care of her out of bed. (Of course, the orgasms don’t hurt.)
Your enthusiasm for her body is more important than your sexual prowess.
SENSE OF STYLE
The way you dress reflects on the woman you’re with, and she knows it.
The man who knows how to match a patterned shirt and tie will notice when she’s dressed well, too.
A woman’s tendency toward attachment is a biological imperative, a matter of raising offspring right. Reassure her (often) that you’re not going anywhere.
Being responsible even if it’s just remembering to pick up salad dressing on your way over to her place. sends a positive signal that someday you might commit.
Young women may still fall for the bad-boy type, but more-mature women are turned on by kindness, because kindness inspires confidence.
In other words, if you treat the waitress well, your date figures you’ll treat her well, too.
Having the guts to tell the truth means to a woman that you have the guts to be a good, caring, decent partner over the long haul.
White lies are okay; just avoid any that are tinged with gray.
SENSE OF HUMOR
Being able to laugh at the stresses of this world is a must, according to the women on our panel. You get bonus points if you can make them laugh.
Humor tells a woman that you can laugh at—read, handle easily—the many difficulties that life throws at you.
A man who feels secure in his own skin makes the woman he’s with feel secure.
By showing you can handle unfamiliar people or situations, you tell the woman in your life that she need not fear, either.
