What We Women Want!

12 Fascinating Discoveries About Women

You will be surprised by what researchers discovered about women! (Men will be grateful and amazed to learn women's secrets.)

Now you can learn the 12 most important and strongest basic needs in women. (Also, there are some very interesting and valuable tips on what drives men crazy!)

The first big discovery:
Women's behavior today is driven primarily by ancient DNA from their female ancestors who lived over the past millions of years.
Women are still using some of the same million-year-old behaviors, even though they are unnecessary today.

Women's strongest unconscious need is to ensure survival and protection of their present and future children. Amazingly, this is true for women of all ages.

Even if women have no children and even after the childbearing years! This need is so important to survival it is hard-wired in women's DNA and affects almost everything they do.

How Women's Ancestors Survived

The proven best way for women to survive in the past millions of years was to have close women friends for protection and assistance, especially during their childbearing years.

Women's ancestors for millions of years had to give birth and raise their children in a very hostile world. That required help from other women since men have not been much help to women throughout history.

So women are DNA-wired to develop good RELATIONSHIPS with all other women for survival. This is true even though today their world is not as dangerous as in the past couple million years. (Think about those ancient predators, parasites, diseases, and ice ages!)

Women in ancient times had to face more dangers than they could cope with by themselves. So having good friendships with as many other women as possible meant a better chance of survival. Additionally, giving birth to babies with no help from men meant women friends were essential!

So women evolved with the need for close relationships with all other women. This trait was essential for safety and survival and became a major survival advantage for all ancient women. Women unconsciously know every smile, pleasant word, and caring encounter with another woman is an investment in future survival. For most women today, relationship building is still a constant daily high priority goal.

Men Are Very Different

Close relationships have not been important to men for their survival for millions of generations. In fact, men have evolved to be competitive and combative in order to survive. Men rely primarily on their physical strength and clever tactics to manipulate their physical world and others. Men do not have an evolved need for building relationships with anyone else like women do.

Summary (1 of 12)

A woman's strongest subconscious need is to build trusting relationships with other women to ensure survival of her and her children.

This need is in all women's DNA from millions of female ancestors. And it remains strong throughout life, even after the child-bearing years.
