What Do You Look For in a Man?

Anais Nin was born in 1903 and lived until 1977 – a period in history often associated with the “Ozzie and Harriet” type of family where Mom stayed at home to raise the children and when Dad came home from work the house and the kids are squeaky clean, dinner was ready, and the “little Momma” greeted him at the door with a kiss and a cocktail. Anais did not conform to this stereotype.  Perhaps she was ahead of her time.


I think the women of this new millennium desire “a man who compels my strength” – a man who sees her as his equal – who understands that beneath the soft curves lies a core of steel. Women today are not asking to be coddled. Instead, would prefer a man “who makes enormous demands” on her as she does on herself. He also recognizes how very capable she is of meeting the demands she sees as worthy of her effort

The words of Anais Nin ring true for the 21st Century woman. We are not looking for a man who sees us as “naive or innocent.” Today’s woman wants a man who will listen and take interest in what we have to say – a man who will make our relationship a priority and will treat us with the tender loving care we deserve in both big and small ways

Yes, Anais, all these years later most women are still looking for “a man who has the courage to treat me like a woman.” Would you agree?

Author: Anita Louise Romance

My husband, Mike, comes from a large and loving family of nine children, and they were the inspiration for the Adler Series. All of my books center around the important people in every woman’s life – romantic relationships, family, and friends. I do my best to take readers on an emotional journey as they observe how the characters in my stories think and feel. It is my hope that while reading, hearts will be touched, funny-bones will be tickled, and overall, lovers of romance will be uplifted and inspired. I have always been an avid reader of love stories, and my passion for romance found another outlet when I discovered how much fun it was to write about my own smart and sexy heroes and heroines. I am also an ardent and devoted student of personal development. Weaving the life changing principles that guided me to the love of my life and to a happy marriage is an important aspect in each of my novels. . Hope you enjoy getting to know all the Adlers as much and I'm enjoying them. Please look for me on Amazon and other popular sites. Also, it would be appreciated very much if you would please share your feedback with me by posting your review.
