Someone who is positive and makes her life happier. See, it’s not that complicated, is it? We unpack the important things a girl wants from a guy in our video.
There’s something so exhilarating about being with a guy who is spontaneous and is full of surprises. The excitement this brings into a girl’s life is a big plus point. That doesn’t mean he has to take her on a surprise trip every weekend, but a little exhilaration goes a long way. Alongside that thrilling spirit, though, needs to be a solid foundation of support. A woman wants to know her man is her rock, there for her no matter what. He’s the one who encourages her and helps her feel positive and confident. He raises her up, and holds her when she falls.
