Dennis Prager writes a perceptive article about what women really want.
First, Prager suggests that “what men most want from the woman they love is to be admired.” So the correlation is not really surprising. “What a woman most wants is to be loved by a man she admires.”
“And what is it that women most admire in a man? From decades of talking to women on the radio and, of course, from simply living life, I have concluded that an admirable man is one who has three qualities: strength, integrity and ambition.
All three are needed. Strength without integrity is machismo. Integrity without strength or without ambition is a milquetoast. And ambition without integrity is a successful crook.”
In a world where “sexy” seems to be the only measurement that counts, the idea of being admirable can seem a little old-fashioned. But here’s why it matters:
“The beauty of all this is that it all comes together for men, for women and for society.
Women get what they want most: to be married to and loved by a man they admire. Men then attain what they want most: to be admired by the woman they love. And society gets the thing it most needs: admirable men.”
