What do you look for most in a man? Good looks? A sense of humor? Money and expensive gifts? While it’s hard for many of us to admit because of how shallow it may sound to the outside world, the fact of the matter is that these three traits are indeed the most sought after traits when you’re looking for a guy, when you want to have someone to call your own, and when you’re waiting to enter a relationship.

While the presence of money will definitely avoid a lot of unnecessary fights, arguments, and discomforts, but the quest to keep earning it might end up keeping your partner really busy. So don’t be surprised one day when he doesn’t even have time to eat dinner with you, or when he forgets to show up at your anniversary because of an important meeting that came up or when you realize that you don’t really have anyone to talk to all the time. - Continue reading on the next page
