5 Qualities Asian Women look for in Men

An Asian man who understands this can be one in a million

Times have changed greatly. Instead of Desi men having expectations of their future wives, Asian women now have a long list of traits men need to have.

The line, “My son is a doctor”, just isn’t enough to entice Desi women anymore. So, what are the qualities that guarantee women to be swept off their feet?

DESIblitz explores the top 5 qualities Desi women look for in a potential suitor.

A Man who is Independent


Growing up as a Desi boy meant that you were used to special treatment, especially your mother fussing over you and doing everything for you.

However, your wife is not a replacement for your mother and she definitely won’t be as happy to wash up after you as your mum is.

A man who knows what he wants in life and knows how to get it, along with knowing how to survive without their mother is just what a woman needs.

A Man who knows Where the Kitchen Is


Your dear mother may have never shown you how to turn the oven on, how to make a simple meal or even the way to the kitchen.

However, very few women in this day and age are willing to put up with this.

Contrary to popular belief, a Desi woman’s life ambition is not to cook three meals a day for her husband for the rest of their lives.

The famous saying: “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” applies to women too.

A Man who isn’t Tight with His Money


Another classic Desi trait. Your bank balance may thank you for it, but no woman ever will.

This doesn’t mean that you should spend all your money on her, but a little wouldn’t hurt.

Just because your dad took your mum to Wales on their honeymoon, doesn’t mean you have to do the same thing.

A Man who has a Sense of Humour


No woman, Desi or not, likes a man who doesn’t have a good sense of humour.

If you can make a woman laugh you can make her do anything. But maybe not as much as your mother does for you.

Laughter is the best medicine, so the Desi doctor in you should be able to prescribe this left, right and centre.

A Man who is Supportive of His Wife


Long gone are the days when Asian women were expected to stay at home while her husband went to work.

Many Asian women are enjoying successful careers in sought-after professions and enjoying the freedom of independent living.

But despite modern day attitudes, many Desi men may still harbour a desire for a ‘traditional’ wife, who will cook, clean, and be totally dependent on them. Sadly, for some independent-minded Asian women, this might be a complete turn-off.

It can be a tough balance for a woman to take care of her husband, house, family and still make her way up the career ladder.

An Asian man who understands this can be one in a million. Whether it’s encouraging their woman to realise her dreams, or even taking care of the washing up after dinner, a supportive husband is a must.

And if all of the above wasn’t clear enough, just refer to this…


Finding an Asian man that ticks all the boxes can be a struggle for today’s modern woman.

In the end, women, just like men yearn for good companionship. And keeping each other happy is the key to a successful and lasting relationship.
