What Irish women want in a man
At last the secret is disclosed and it will surprise many males
It is the eternal question that weighs like a millstone around most men's necks the world over. Finally here are the answers you have been waiting for.
The ladies of IrishCentral.com have put our shamrock embossed thinking caps on and come up a few pointers on how to woo that potential Irish lady friend. These essential qualities are sure to impress most woman but guaranteed to win over an Irish woman.
Property and pride in property
They say every Princess should have her palace the same way every Irish lady should have her few acres. The Irish are mad for the bit of land. Translation: we are obsessed with real estate. And yes before you mention it, this obsession had landed us in the deepest recession this side of AD. However we do appreciate a grand bit of property or at least the aspiration to own your own someday.
Plus if you are lucky enough to have an Irish lady back in your humble surroundings please ensure you have made some attempts to spruce up the place. We are not asking for your place to resemble a Pottery Barn catalogue just a lick of paint here and a few subtle additions around the place. Make your space a home. You’re a grown man for God's sake, dorm rooms are for college days. Sophisticated surroundings will always win that Irish lady over.
You’re a man right? So please proceed to act like one and not resemble your teenage alter ego that still rears his zitty head from time to time. You need to be able to hold down that job and look after yourself, how on earth are you going to look after an Irish woman if you cannot buy toilet roll? No men still seeking hand-outs from Mammy or Daddy need apply. If you still cannot stand on your own two feet then don’t expect to whisk an Irish lady off hers.
At the risk of sounding superficial here, style is important. No Irish woman wants to date a man who is still dressed by his Mammy. We are reasonable and don't require you to be dressed in Armani from head to toe or sporting the latest catwalk sensation from Hugo Boss. No, all we want is some well fitting clothes that don't resemble your First Holy Communion outfit.
Style is not just about the clothes on your back. It's also about how you carry yourself and interact with those around you. Know when to shut up. Most Irish men are about as smooth as the bumpy roads they come from so here is a chance to show an Irish lady your charisma and charm.
Coming from an Irish woman, we love to talk. A nation famous for our banter there is no better way to win an Irish woman's heart than an ability for chit chat. I know it may seem pretty basic but it's important to be able to hold a good conversation with someone.
Don’t fall into the death trap of blabbering on about yourself either. Communication is a two way road and yes we are both on it. Your ability for banter should extend to your favorite Irish woman’s friends and family also. You need to be able to interact in such situations. You're a big boy now...get the thumb out of your mouth and spark a conversation fit for any Irish woman's ears.
