Survey: Meet 'The Perfect Man'
He loves his mom and eats meat.
Well, the guys are going to love this one.
While there may be someone out there who's perfect for you, we all know the perfect person simply doesn’t exist. Still, researchers wanted to know what qualities women want in men, and their results reveal "the perfect man."
According to the poll by Austin Reed, the perfect man earns about $77K a year, drinks beer and drives an Audi.
But wait, men. Before you get bent out of shape, there's even more.
Women also want men to have stylish clothes, a good body and a clean-shaven face. In fact, in the survey of 2,000 women, they list those qualities as a "must." The hipster beards just aren't cutting it anymore.
The perfect guy also can swim, rides a bike, and makes family his top priority.
Yep. Eighty-six percent of women polled say they want a sensitive man who calls his mom regularly and cries during movies.
According to The Huffington Post, a spokesperson for Austin Reed said:
"It would seem that women have high expectations when it comes to the perfect man. How a man is presented is obviously going to be a huge part of that. While women don’t want a man to be too preened, they would like him to be stylish and up to date with current trends."
And we're not even done yet. Women also prefer men to be 6 feet tall with short, dark hair and brown eyes. Can we be any more specific? Yes, we can. He must also be a carnivore.
I, for one, respectfully disagree with these results. Among other "imperfect" traits, my ideal man drives a '97 Nissan and can't swim for crap.
Here's a full list of qualities the perfect man apparently possesses:
- 6 feet tall
