Did I hear you say?
That all women donít know
What they want in a man
Just to partially agree with you
Many women donít know what they want
Until they have actually received it
But have you actually asked a woman
What does she need in a man?
This is on behalf of my sisters
Who know what they need?
But just settle for less
Because they canít find the best

I need a man that has learned to love himself first
So that I know he will not have a problem loving me
I need a man with goals
So that we can look forward to the future
I need a man that respects his family
So that I won't have doubts if we were to start one
I need a man that is willing to communicate
So when there are problems, we can talk them out
I need a man who is straightforward
So that there are no misunderstandings along the way
I need a man that would sacrifice anything for his woman
Because I too would do the same for him

Now I could fill a page with things that I want
But sometimes when you get the things that you want
You realize just how much you didnít need it after all
But needs are essential to live a prosperous life
And prosperity lives in the man that I need
So the next time that you ask a woman
What does she want in a man?
Remember that wants come and go
But a need is something that will last

Speaking of need versus want is an interesting perspective. I think the greatest need for both men and women is good communication, especially before a serious relationshiop is established, and certainly before marriage.  I believe that expectations are usually there but open communication is not, in many cases.  
Men and women are very different, physically mentally and emotionally.  So often, I think, a couple charges forward in a relationship based on emotion and as time passes, other issues develop that present different views by each person, and maybe causes conflict in the relationship.

Just thinking out loud.  I have no hard facts that support my position, just one man's opinion. (for what it's worth)(a smile)
Anyway, enjoyed this piece.
Best regards....

Danny,  It is always good to get a man's perspective on topics like these. Your words are so true, Communication is very important when in a relationship with someone,and people may never know what hides inside if they never ask questions or talk about their problems.
Thanks for thinking out loud!
