What do guys really want in a girl? That is an age-old question. If only we were able to read their minds, relationships would be a piece of cake, huh? But what is your crush looking for? Would he be open to dating long-term or is he only looking to have fun with no strings attached? You may be able to have an open discussion with whomever you're crushing at the moment, but sometimes, it might be better to stay quiet and let the relationship unfold. But you can't help and ask yourself...what do men want?
Who are their dream girls? A totally adventurous thrill-seeker, or a laid back kind of girl? Do they want someone who is easy-going or do they prefer someone who is self-reliant, assertive and can make their own decisions? The truth is that men are a mystery and they rarely share what it is they really want. In most cases, even they don't have a clue as to what makes a girl irresistible in their own eyes. When there's this much confusion, people, in general, will turn to something higher than themselves. In this case, turning to the stars is the best way to figure guys out.
So, what type of woman do the men of the various Zodiac signs feel is their dream girl? Do they want a woman who reminds them of their mom? Do they want someone who is their total equal? The Zodiac signs may finally hold the key to deciphering the secrets that make men fall for certain women. And they may even provide clues to figuring out whether people should get together, stay together, or split up.
