If there is one thing I believe every woman wants in a man, it’s an ability to make her feel safe.
We don’t have to be the most towering or hulking figure, nor do we have to be the most decorated martial artist or a former Navy seal. I mean, those things would definitely work in our favor and make our woman feels like she lucked up on some 2-for-1 deal with a boyfriend and a bodyguard, but what’s more important is perception. She just wants us to make her feel safer when we’re around.
As I get older, I’ve become more and more hip to this idea.
No one is more aware of the large presence I don’t impose on others than I. Here’s what I’m coming with.
Default face: Happy
Hobbies: Watching Top Chef
Secret Talent: Knows how to play “Endless Love” on the piano
Now tell me, does any of that sound like a wrestler?
I have a 1-0 record in street fights, but I’m pretty sure records from middle school were exempt when I turned 18. I mean, I did go to a public middle school, so maybe I get points for street cred, but still, who am I kidding?
I’m not a fighter, but women continue to date me because not being a fighter is not the same as being willing to fight. I place a high value on making a woman feel safe. I’m like Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard. My woman knows before I let anything happen to her, I will let something happen to me.
Women appreciate men who have this attitude, but I always tell them don’t mistake a man’s willingness to make his woman feel safe for his ability to do so; and if she can ever stop her man from fighting in front of her, she should do so at all cost.
