5 Lies You've Been Told About What Men Want
Our expert reveals the surprising truth behind these dating myths.

Lie #4: Men Don't Appreciate Smart, Funny Women

Don't listen to Joan Rivers when she barks about how men don't appreciate funny women. (I love her, but let's face it, the woman is bitter.) And that's the problem: Men don't like sarcasm.


There is a time and a place for certain types of jokes. If your jokes are more spiteful and raunchy than endearing and goofy, maybe you need to step back and take a better look at yourself. What men want is to feel emotionally safe with a woman and have a good time with her. If your sense of humor puts him on the defensive, then he's not going to appreciate your humor.

Lie #5: Men Only Want What They Can't Have

This goes along with the lie that men love mystery. A mature, commitment-friendly man who is looking for a wife and wants a family isn't interested in chasing your skirt. He wants to know you more. Men who only want what they can't have are unaccountable boys.

What men want is to feel like the women they date have worth. And that starts with your self-worth. If you respect yourself and you politely and kindly demand only his best behavior, a great man will scramble to please you and will work hard to take you off the market. She doesn't have to play games.
