We tend to want to seek out the bad, highlight others' failures, and mock those who stumble. Dating was tough even before the invention of social media. But now it's an all-out war on one another. We can instantly upload photos of clueless people, and screenshot conversations can be shared in the blink of an eye. Let's be honest, we all have a tough job showing up and trying to be present in our relationships. When we are constantly being judged about who we are, it's even harder to show up.


Here are 10 swoon-worthy qualities women love about men:

1. Men who embrace their softer sides

Men are going to the chick flicks with us and crying at commercials and movies. They're okay with being vulnerable and letting us see their softer side.

8. Men who are willing to be goofy

Whether it's having a tea party with your toddler or dressing up like a minion for Halloween, the men in our lives are willing to unbutton and be silly with us.


9. Men who can have tough conversations

Gone are the days of men clamming up and refusing to talk about stressful things. Men today are opening up and taking a risk to talk about things that make us uncomfortable and push our buttons. They are willing to seek out solutions together and find a common way through disagreements. The amazing men in our lives will give us even more reasons to love them in 2015 as they show up, authentically and fully. Loving us deeply and passionately. Celebrate the man in your life who truly is an amazing partner and soulmate.
