A normal guy would want the same thing out of a relationship that you do. Friends with benefits is and always has been a really bad idea. Sure, it might sound good but the sexually transmitted diseases are usually a down side. Just because you are sleeping with each other as friends doesnt mean that neither of you will sleep with someone else. Yes... a lot of guys do romance and love romance. Usually they are shy about it when they are younger... or they wont think it is macho or some other really lame excuse but yes... a lot of guys love romance. Even when they dont really know what it is.
It depends on both parties. Personally a relationship filled with love, interesting conversations, a night on the town every so often, and most importantly a relationship that stays together until the end.
Speaking from a guys perspective I can say that I personally want a romantic relationship, but for a good portion of guys nowadays, it is sexual pleasures most want, with maybe a side of romance to look like a good guy. Personally I get tired of hearing how many times someones had sex this week or whatever. A wonderful, true relationship is hard to find anymore and it's not just because of what men want.

That depends on the individual and on his age. The same person's preferences and emotional and physical needs change along the years. I have found that those of my friends the less likely to get girls interested in them, looks & personality, are more sensitive and more romance oriented. While those of my friends who are "hotter" from a girls perspective, are more into physical relationships. They are getting too many opportunities from many sources (girls) and taking advantage of them. The first group, the unhot and uncool, would be happy just with having a girl (I think that the writers from the sitcom The Big Bang Theory really nailed it in the neediness of Dr. Rajesh Rutrappali, or however it's spelled, it's a fictitious name after all. However, again from experience, the hot group, with age find that one woman they want to be with and change happens in their preferences, finally they have a woman they want to make happy. They may not be the romantic type, but to please that one woman they'll play the part. Been there, done that ... doing that.

From my personal experience a lot of guys really don't know because they can tell you they want one thing but as soon as something happens or see them self too involve maybe they change and then there you are trying to figure it out.
