â€œShe needs to be hot. She needs to be hot and nice. She needs to be hot and nice and smart. Maybe itâ€™s a little more complicated than thatâ€¦â€ In a nutshell, there is the progression of a manâ€™s thoughts on what a girlfriend must be from the moment he starts to like girls in his teens to, well, a little bit later. But, essentially, as men move from one woman to the next, they tend to keep an eye out that the next one will be better than the previous in the following ways.
You keep yourself happy
It can be satisfying for a man to be the night in shining armorâ€”the one who picks you up when you are downâ€”for a while, but eventually men learn itâ€™s tiring to be with a woman who doesnâ€™t make an effort to stay positive. If you can roll with the punches, not dwell on negative things too long and say â€œIt will be fineâ€ and mean it, a guy will be seriously impressed. As men get older, they want to be with women who know how to stay positive because life keeps getting harder and a guy canâ€™t be his own and your cheerleader all the time.
