Survey of women reveals "perfect man"

I think this is mostly bullshit, but here is what they deduced that the qualities of a perfect man are:

(I bolded the ones I don't have, and my own comments are in parentheses)
1. 6 feet tall
(I'm an inch less, so close enough)

2. Toned and athletic
(very few men over 30 are this)

3. Brown eyes
(really, why?)

4. Short dark hair
(again, seems arbitrary)

5. Smart dress sense
(not sure what this means, but sure)

6. Beer drinker

7. Non-smoker

8. Wears smart jeans, shirt and a V-neck jumper
(isn't this a more specific #5, and what the hell is a v-neck jumper and why would it matter?)

9. Gets ready in 17 minutes
("ready" how? Shave AND shower? - I can do it quicker)

10. Stylish
(wait, wasn't this already #s 5 AND 8? Do women care that much about a man's dress?)

11. Wants a family

12. Earns 48,000 ($77,000) a year
(is this a minimum? I earn a bit more.)

13. Loves shopping
(are these women looking for a man or a girlfriend?)

14. Eats meat
(and how!)

15. Clean shaven
(I am 3 out of 5 days, so I'll go with yes)

16. Smooth chest
(no fucking way I'm shaving my chest. Also, not a single woman has minded it)

17. Watches soaps
(WTF - really? Maybe it's a British thing...)

18. Enjoys watching football
(I know a lot of women who would prefer that their man didn't follow sports AT ALL)

19. Drives an Audi
(that's rather specific...)

20. Educated to degree level

21. Earns more than his other half
(I'm counting the women I've dated as my other half, and I've earned more than most of them)

22. Jokes around and has a laugh
(who would answer no to this?)

23. Sensitive when his wife/girlfriend is upset

24. Says 'I love you' only when he means it

25. Admits it when he looks at other women
(bullshit - I don't make it obvious and have never been caught looking, but women don't really want to know this)

26. Has a driver's license
(duh-doy!)

27. Can swim
(who can't?)

28. Can ride a bike
(ditto)

29. Can change a tire

30. Calls mom regularly
(what if your mom is deceased?)
Wow, that was stupid.

Anyhoo, so I posses about 25 of these and am far from "perfect". Also, I'm sure that so many other things (say, playing an instrument) would trump a lot of these.

Brown eyes? I don't think I've ever heard a woman express a desire for brown eyes.

Re: Survey of women reveals "perfect man"

77 grand?!? I make 150 grand, as does everbody on this board; looks like we all have that covered.

A smooth chest is an issue though.

I got number 17 covered. I guess I will have to work on the rest.

Uh oh...looks like my secret is out...now everyone is going to try and pick up women by riding bikes on the highway looking to help women fix their flats while speaking to their mom on the phone.

Re: Survey of women reveals "perfect man"

Well, I guess I'm not what they're seeking. I'll put in my data for DVDTalk posterity.

1. 6 feet tall
2 inches shy here.

2. Toned and athletic
No, but I'm not obese. I'm not toned, but I have some muscle from working out. I also have moobs and a belly, but not egregious ones.

3. Brown eyes
Check

4. Short dark hair
Dark hair; not always short, but often.

5. Smart dress sense
I don't know what this means, but I normally dress casual-formal. No brand names in particular, because I don't give a shit.

6. Beer drinker
No, I don't drink.

7. Non-smoker
Check

8. Wears smart jeans, shirt and a V-neck jumper
I don't like or wear jeans. I have no idea what is a V-neck jumper, so no.

9. Gets ready in 17 minutes
Can do.

10. Stylish
No. I don't give a hoot about style insofar as what the latest fashions and trends are, but I like to have a decent appearance.

11. Wants a family
Sure, I'm not averse to having kids with the right woman.

12. Earns 48,000 ($77,000) a year
No, sorry.

13. Loves shopping
A big "no" on this one. When shopping must be done, I do it with a singular purpose. In and out.

14. Eats meat
Yes, but I'm not inalterably devoted to meat.

15. Clean shaven
Not really. My facial hair grows slowly. I only shave every few days.

16. Smooth chest
Nope, but my chest isn't simian in its hirsuteness.

17. Watches soaps
No way.

18. Enjoys watching football
Nope. I hate football. I watch tennis and soccer on occasion, but I'd rather be playing them.

19. Drives an Audi
No. If I had the money I'd buy a Tesla sedan.

20. Educated to degree level
No, but I'm very intelligent and quite self-educated, if I may say so.

21. Earns more than his other half
Highly improbable.

22. Jokes around and has a laugh
Yes, but not as much as I used to.

23. Sensitive when his wife/girlfriend is upset
Absolutely. That's one of my best qualities, along with honesty.

24. Says 'I love you' only when he means it
Affirmative.

25. Admits it when he looks at other women
Yes.

26. Has a driver's license
Check.

27. Can swim
I love to swim.

28. Can ride a bike
Check.

29. Can change a tire
Check.

30. Calls mom regularly
Definitely.

Re: Survey of women reveals "perfect man"

So as long as he's sexy and stylish, I guess the women who were surveyed are OK with just about any guy. Good news for obnoxious, promiscuous ventriloquists with drug and gambling addictions, or violent garbage men with severe body odor.

Since this is from the U.K., they are referring to soccer, which is not a real sport anyway.

Apparently being verbally and physically abusive are grey areas.

Women will incessantly bitch about their husband spending too much time following sports, but if he didn't it would drive them crazy because they'd think there was something wrong with him.

You just don't know them like they do. Inside, they're really sweet.

Re: Survey of women reveals "perfect man"

Actual studies arrive at the truth.

Women like arrogant, conceited, superficial, fatuous jerks. Yet they claim all the nonsense like the above if you ask them.

Or... almost any guy that's rich.

no drug abuse, prescription or otherwise
wine and beer drinking ok
must be ok with pets and kids
not a religious freak but must be spiritual
not a couch potato
vegan or vegetarian/pescetarian a plus but not required

You're surprised? The girls I knew in their 20s dated jerks all the time. Fucking hell they were gluttons for punishment.
