In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Life Coach Sheetal Shaparia lists:

1. A stereotypical perspective would suggest that physical appeal and intimacy are the only qualities men want in a woman. Although this may not be true for all "men," it may be true for immature "boys." 

2. Smartness, boldness and confidence are all qualities that mature men admire in a woman. 

3. Men admire women who are intelligent and capable of being self-sufficient. 

4. Someone who can support them through highs and lows, who has a nurturing nature and can care for them like a mother and remain by their side as a best friend. 

5. Most men put on a tough face while being soft on the inside. Hence, they require someone who can appreciate their gentleness in order to open up to that one woman and express himself without the fear of being judged. 

6. Men, above all, seek a lady who appreciates and accepts him and his family for who they are.

Busting some common myths on what men want, Jyotsna Ahuja, Founder of The White Space revealed, “It is not being loved but being the beloved that makes a man truly himself. No man is ever going to feel fully seen if the woman cares for him by being the caretaker. It is being seen as an equal - neither less than nor on a pedestal - that makes a man feel he truly belongs.”
