10 Ways a Good Woman Makes You Better.

Posted by yoMcLovin on December 31, 2010

When it comes to relationships, all any guy wants is a good woman.

Unfortunately, many of us have to go through a number of not-so-good women before we find the one that’s really worth the effort. Women say they have to kiss a lot of frogs before they find their prince. Well, men have to put up with a lot of princesses before they find a partner.

But when a guy finds the right girl it’s as if all the other aspects of his life fall into place. That’s the effect a good woman can have on you. A healthy and supportive relationship can make you a Better Man.

No.10 She makes you socialize

One of the top 10 ways a good woman improves you is by making you socialize. A lot of guys have a solitary streak. We like our privacy and value our alone time, but we can sometimes get so comfortable in our loner routine that we forget how much fun socializing can be. That’s why a good woman is so important.

Women are more social than men. Sociologists at the University of Manchester say that women are better at making friends; they form “deeper” and stronger connections than men do. Women also make up the majority of users on most major social networks. For instance, 57% of Facebook users are women. Women have an inclination toward community and society that can counter the solitary streak of even the most introverted guy.

A good woman will drag your lazy ass out to a party or to a bar, even when you put up a fuss. You’ll grumble about it while you’re getting ready, but when you’re out having a good time, you’ll thank her for it.

No.9 She makes you better in bed

How does a good woman make you better in bed? She challenges you. She keeps things fresh. She pushes the limits. When you’re in a relationship, by necessity, you have to keep sex interesting. Boredom is the enemy of monogamy. A relationship with a good woman, then, will necessarily involve sexual experimentation and lots of playtime between the sheets. Your sex life could become more adventurous than it was during even your wildest of oat-sowing phases.

No.8 She keeps you normal

Every guy has his hang-ups. We all have our own particular neuroses and insecurities. Maybe you’re a jealous guy or you periodically struggle with confidence. We all go through it. The problem is that, if left unchecked, our hang-ups can become serious obstacles to our happiness.

So, another one of the top 10 ways a good woman can improve you is by keeping those neuroses under control. Having another person by your side — someone who loves you — can be the cure-all for all those counterproductive tendencies.

No.7 She keeps you honest

Newsflash: sometimes men lie. We lie to our partners. We sometimes even lie to ourselves. We know it’s not a good thing, but we do it anyway. A good woman, however, keeps you honest. That’s another of the top 10 ways a good woman improves you.

She’ll make sure you’re telling the truth, not only to her, but to yourself. If you’re making excuses for why you can’t get that promotion, she’ll call you on it. If you’re wallowing in self-pity, she’ll call you on that too. A good woman knows you — maybe better than you know yourself.

No.6 She keeps you healthy

Keeping you healthy is another one of the top 10 ways a good woman improves you. Women are often more health-conscious than us guys are.

They count the calories in a salad like we count the strips of bacon on a cheeseburger.

A good woman is more likely to keep you eating right and going to the gym. She may even inspire you to stay healthy without pressuring or cajoling whatsoever. After all, having a hot, fit girlfriend is incentive enough to stay in good shape.

No.5 She focuses you on the future

Some relationships are transient, temporary or even disposable. You know them when you’re in them; they have an expiration date. A good relationship isn’t like that, though. While a good relationship is lots of fun in the present, it also gets you thinking about the future, and not only about the predictable stuff — like marriage and kids — but also about all the big picture stuff, like your career and life goals. And having a plan is never a bad thing.

No.4 She keeps you motivated

Not only is a good woman going to keep you focused on your goals, she’s also going to help you get there. It’s another one of the top 10 ways a good woman improves you. She’s a trusted adviser, and your head cheerleader. She has your career in mind. She keeps your eye not just on promotions and advancement, but also on your job satisfaction and happiness. Whether it’s reassurance or a swift kick in the pants, she’ll tell you what you need to hear when you need to hear it.

Moreover, when you have a good woman, you want to make her proud of you, and that’s maybe the biggest motivator of all.

No.3 She challenges you to try new things

A good woman improves you. She helps you become a more complete human being. Often that just means exposing you to things you’ve never tried before. Maybe it’s as simple as trying new foods or taking up yoga. Maybe it’s going on a backpacking excursion in Europe, or skydiving.

The point is that it’s both easier and more fun to try new things when you have someone by your side. You’re more likely to take chances when you’re with someone you trust. Ultimately, a good woman will help you become better-rounded.

No.2 She provides stability

There’s a lot to be said for stability. It’s one of the great virtues of a committed relationship. Consequently, we consider stability among the most important of our top 10 ways a good woman improves you. Think about it: Once you have the romantic and sexual part of your life locked down, once you’re no longer chasing phone numbers and dealing with breakup drama, how much more energy will you now have to focus on other areas?

When you have a good woman by your side — someone who will support you and stand by you through thick and thin — you’ll finally be able to open your own business or take a year to travel the globe. With a good relationship as your foundation, you are in a better position to pursue all your dreams and ambitions.

No.1 She sees the best in you

Topping our list of the top 10 ways a good woman improves you: She sees the best in you. When a great woman treats you like you’re the most capable and deserving guy in the world, it’s hard not to feel like the most capable and deserving guy in the world.

In other words, a good woman not only sees the best in you, she also helps you see the best in yourself.
