Melbourne, June 23 (ANI): All modern men really want are two things - to feel like men and to feel they've earned a great woman, a new research suggests.
According to the study, modern men want to be needed, News.com.au reported.
Most men don't want to be with a woman who doesn't feel needed.
Men need to be needed, not necessarily financially, but definitely emotionally and sexually.
It makes them feel like they're worthy and like they're men.
If a woman doesn't seem like she needs a man, or she continually tells how successful she is, she is a complete turn off.
Modern men aren't afraid of successful women but don't want it thrown in their faces.
The New York Times reported in 2004 that a man would rather marry his secretary than his boss.
But modern men say that this simply isn't the case.
They simply don't want to date a woman without a great career.
But that doesn't mean modern women need to give up their success - they just need to get better at managing the ever-so fragile ego of the bloke in their life.
Modern men want to earn sex.
Despite research from the Ohio State University published in the Journal of Sex Research, which found that men think about sex more than 18 times per day (compared with a median of 10 times for women), they still like to know they have worked for it.
Modern men only want to commit to a woman they can respect.
Modern men who have recently morphed from a player into a stayer all tell the same story: they flit from woman to woman until one steals their heart, so they throw out their playbook and marry her.
Modern men do want to get married - but in their own time.
And then there's the ever-elusive male timeline. Modern men do want to get married, but they are a little slower getting there.
Nowadays, getting hitched is darn expensive. And a man wants to make sure he is financially and emotionally ready before he takes the plunge.
So perhaps if more modern women let men be men, gave them a little bit of a challenge and boosted their egos once in a while, the supply and demand would reverse. (ANI)
