I like to think I keep my heart pretty open and avoid getting caught up in picky details about my dream guy.
But there is one important character trait that I really believe contributes to a successful relationship: courage. However, I am hoping to meet a man who has the strength to do things that are hard for him, whether that means giving up football for one Sunday afternoon to entertain in-town relatives or standing up for what he believes in when everyone around him thinks the opposite.

I think there are five key ways that a man can demonstrate his strength and fortitude while dating. It all starts here.
If he can do it in person, even better. But the kind of man who can be clear with his intentions toward me, and who is willing to take the risk of rejection to ask me out, is showing that he has some skills that will go a long way to making a happy relationship. Call me for, but I think it sets the tone for our dating relationship: I want man be pursued, and I want him to be looking about it.
OK, a lot of the time. I grew up playing tennis, and I always wanted to play against better opponents because doing so helped me improve.

The same logic applies to relationships. It will take real courage to do that. This is a big one.
Bravery is so, so necessary when it comes to communication. A relationship is bound to have its ups and downs.
We will both have things we struggle with, and we need to be honest about them in order to make the relationship work. I had one relationship where my boyfriend and I never fought. Seriously, not once.
When he ended it, all the hard things that he never talked about with me came to the surface. I had no clue! But it did teach me that a successful relationship means having the fortitude to wade through the tough stuff together. Not only that, but he will also have the ability to move forward without holding a grudge.
The most important trait i’m looking for in a man
Leave the past in the past. I believe love is a choice. But feelings are very fickle and fleeting.
Real love, on the other hand, is like the North Star in the storms of life; it is constant, sure, and true. Someone who chooses to be with me rather than be by himself or continue to explore his options.
Someone who loves me for me. Loving another person is perhaps the most courageous act there is. A man with the courage to do that is definitely a keeper. I wish more guys knew how attractive true courage is to a woman.
