What does it mean when a woman says "I want a man who knows what
When women say "I want a man who knows what he wants and knows how to get it." she is actually saying: "I want to be chased. When a man chases me, I feel better about myself." It also means she's in control to a certain degree, and although I would say that she THINKS she wants to be in control, she really doesn't because if the man knows what he wants, then she's abdicating responsibility to a degree and subsuming her desires for his.
