Every woman out there wants to find the perfect man for her. When we say perfect, it differs from one person to another. Some people define perfect as someone who will accept them even with their darkest past, while for others perfect is being a kindhearted person. But, we all know that perfect doesn’t exist at all, it’s just a word we use to say or describe what we want that fits our desire. What about you, how do you define your perfect man?

“What a Man My Man Is” The Content

Lynn Anderson’s song “What a Man, My Man is” is a song about a woman who after all this time finally found her perfect lover. She described him to be caring and loving. She is also satisfied that her man gives her the feeling that he needed her. We all want that, right? Not just women but, everyone wants to be needed. Nobody wants to feel unimportant, nobody wants to be in a relationship and not be thought about. However, not all relationships are perfect, it has flaws no matter how perfect you think the person is.
