What Men Value

Women are raised to value relationships; everyone knows this. Men, on the other hand, are often thought of as placing sex above all other needs. However, contrary to this belief, research has found that men value relationships as much as women.

In a study performed by Playboy, men were surveyed to see what they valued most to make their lives happy and satisfying. Below is al its of the top 11 values in order of preference. The results may surprise you:

  • Health 89 percent
  • Love 85 percent
  • Peace of mind 84 percent
  • Family life 84 percent
  • Work 65 percent
  • Friends 63 percent
  • Respect 58 percent
  • Education 57 percent
  • Sex 49 percent
  • Religion 41 percent
  • Money 39 percent

As you see, "love" was ranked number two by the majority of men surveyed on the list of values with sex coming in at number nine. If you're one of the people who misjudged men and their needs, let this study allow you to open up your mind and see how multi-faceted men's needs really are. By doing so, you will have a richer relationship with the man you love.
