women want just slave  to fellow her.to apply her orders.

to practice her instructions word by word.

to say to her (what a beautiful girl you are.i have never ever seen  a pretty girl like you)

women are always changing (may be it is a psychlogical disorder)

not all women.

obosalahaddine, did a woman make you suffer?

12:08 PM Aug 08 2009 |



The truth a woman wants a man that has her time and is financially stable

Life is tough, and dull sometimes, so we need someone to be with us supportively and understandingly, even silently sometimes.


So pls don't ask what a woman wants from a man. I assume people just need each other…...

Virgin Islands, U.S.

I think women want a man to be humorous, have a good job or study hard at school. Your appearances are not very important. A man have to be a good listener and respect women. Be thoughtful and love her
