One of the biggest dreams every little girl has is to grow up, meet her “Prince Charming” get married and start a family of her own. And, every girl dreams of her fairytale wedding.

But, for many, by the time they are young women past the raging (adolescent) passion, infatuation, and hormones, the fantasy has perhaps turned into reality and becoming June Cleaver may not be that appealing any more.

The good news is, is that while men and what they want out of life and in a wife “have come a long way baby”. And, modern man seems to be much more Mantastic.

1. They prefer strong independent women. Even some of Hollywood’s sexiest hunks are opting for their alpha-female counterpart, and some don’t even mind morphing into their “boy toys”.

2. Along with reality TV we’ve gotten men who are more “real”. Gone or phasing out are the Cro-Magnon men and on the rise are the sexier, smarter more sensitive sorts.

3. They’re in tune with not only the female body but also female sexuality and can appreciate the benefits of warm fuzzy pjs as well as some sexy sex toys. Plus, getting in touch with their own feelings and our makes many men better in bed.

4. Like fine wine, they are getting better with age. Men are taking better care of themselves and in fact some of today’s hotties are over 30 and over 40 (some even over 50).

5. Letting go of “stereotypical” thinking. Lots of guys are willingly foregoing the traditional stage for something a bit cleaner and classier and these same guys have given up the threesome idea, realizing that when it comes to relationships and good lovin’ “three’s a crowd”.

6. They’ve started to dress for success. Even some of today’s most popular up and coming rappers are sporting a more sophisticated tailored look that actually makes them look like they can afford clothes that (properly) fit them.

7. They’ve found new direction in life. Loaded with a GPS system, while they still won’t stop and ask for directions, today’s man is less likely to get lost.

8. They are okay about getting in touch with their “feminine” side. Today’s man is no longer afraid to show emotion (beyond frustration and anger). The modern man will cry, even at movies, and many are pursuing nurturing careers such as nursing, teaching etc.

9. Their musical tastes are becoming more eclectic. Many modern men “CAN” appreciate Celine (Dion) and other tasteful and soothing melodies that don’t require banging your head or anyone else’s against the wall.

10. They can admit to and embrace having a biological clock. Not only does this make them marriage material but also great dad’s that want and look forward to spending time with their kids. After all men like Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt are making the family man familiarly sexy.

11. They are no longer (just) sports mongers. In fact they can enjoy a good laugh, a good cry, some educational TV and a good book.
