Women like a man who is confident in his abilities and can take care of himself (and them too if the need arises). They also appreciate an array of skills in men ranging from complex ones that show off masculinity to the emotional ones which indicate a guy’s softer side. Although it’s virtually impossible to impress every woman with the same one or two skills, here are the top five skills that impress women.
1. Being able to cook
Just about every woman is a little bit pleasantly surprised to discover that a guy can cook, actually wants to cook and seems to genuinely know what he’s doing in the kitchen. You don’t have to start taking cooking classes, shop for expensive cookware or throw together an artistic dinner to impress a woman. Just start with a few basic recipes and practice them till they turn out right. As long the meals you prepare for her taste good and look and smell appetizing, you’re impressing her.
2. Being able to fix a car
Although not all men are crazy about engines or getting grease all over their sleeves and hands, in order to impress a woman, it is usually enough to be able to maintain a car correctly, replace a flat tire and diagnose basic car troubles correctly instead of opening the hood and looking confused.
3. Being able to speak a foreign language
A woman is bound to be impressed by a man who can speak a foreign language, especially when you just let it come up at the right moment. Apart from the fact speaking a foreign language requires certain level of intelligence and is a skill that is more difficult to learn as an adult, it is also a sign of worldliness, which intrigues women.
4. Being a handyman
It’s very impressive to a woman when you’re willing to get your hands dirty and can be relied upon to maintain a home and perform basic repairs.
5. Being able to converse with them
Women are impressed by men who can express their opinions and feelings in a masculine way. Unfortunately, most men don’t realize that a woman’s idea of communication means actually listening to what she has to say and understanding her, as well as relate to her problems without judging her or providing unwanted advice. When you learn how to listen to your woman and adequately express yourself, she will feel understood and respected and you will experience fewer communication problems in your relationship.
