About This Quiz

Relationships are hard work, and it takes two to make them great. Both you and your man have needs that should be met by the other to keep the relationship happy and healthy. 

However, there are some things that you might need in your man before you even realize that you need them. If you aren't sure what you need most in a man, you can't ask for it, or define it, and that can lead to a lot of unwanted attempts at relationships that can fail pretty quickly. While some need specific actions or behaviors from their men, others need surface-level perfections. 

All of these are reasonable requests of the dating world, but if you aren't sure what you need the most, you may find yourself trying to date every different kind of man just to "give him a chance." Ultimately, this is a colossal waste of your time and dating energy. That is why it's so important to know what you're looking for in a man and what you need the most before you even step foot in the modern dating arena. It's time for you to hone in on your wants and needs, and find the right man for you. Answer these questions, and we'll tell you what you need most in a man.
