And now, a survey to make you feel completely inadequate. A clothing company called Austin Reed surveyed 2,000 women to figure out the qualities that make up the "PERFECT MAN." The list got really specific (and in my opinion a lot petty) but you can see how many of these 26 criteria you meet . . .
Physical. Six feet tall. Muscularly toned and athletic. Brown eyes. Short dark hair. Smooth chest. Clean shaven. Good fashion sense, but gets ready in 17 minutes or less. Wears jeans and a v-neck sweater. Habits. Non-smoker. Prefers beer over wine or cocktails. Admits when he looks at other women. Eats meat. Education, Career, Money. College degree. Earns more than you . . . approximately $76,000-a-year. Drives an Audi. Hobbies. Loves shopping. Watches football. Can swim and ride a bike. Knows how to change a tire. Has a driver's license. Likes dramas and reality shows. Other Emotional Stuff. Calls his mom twice a week. Says "I love you" only when he means it. Is sensitive when you're upset. Has a good sense of humor. Wants a family.
I have a lot of girlfriends and bounced this topic off of them and we agreed that a man wanting a shot of Pendelton over a glass of Pinot, taking 18+ minutes to get ready, and not wanting to watch trashy reality TV was A-O-K with us. So prehaps perfection, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
I like a guy who can make me laugh, over the years my physical requirements have toned down some. However; the guy in the photo is hot. I would like a guy who actually has a stable job and pays his way and can afford to take me out a couple of times a month. A man who makes me feel secure and who is not a wimp! Yes, I like a man who does not primp in the mirror but takes care of himself. I would also like a guy who loves me and shows it often and a guy who can cook sometimes.
