Ok, I know that this is silly because the perfect man doesn’t exist. Some women claim that they do, but I’m pretty certain that when you meet someone you like, you are willing to look past one or two details missing from your list, which is a good thing. There are more important things than what your ideal partner has to be and look like that matter. It’s about chemistry and attraction and often enough, it happens when you least expect it and with whom you would never have expected it to happen.
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard someone tell me that my standards were too high. I say that it’s not true because I’m pretty sure I should have raised my standards for all the guys I’ve dated in the past. Or rather get my priorities straight and actually open my eyes to see beyond a pretty face. Of course, if I would look according to my list and to my list only, they would definitely be too high. I have to admit though that, after all this not so great guys, I deserve someone who is at least close. That may be impossible to find, but I’m not really looking anyway, so everything is cool. I am pretty sure though that when the day comes, where I finally meet someone who sweeps me off my feet, I will forget all about my list because that’s how it should be.
But just in case there will ever be the possibility to bake or order the man of my dreams, this would be him:
♥ dark hair: Short or curly would be great, since I’m not a huge fan of long hair. But there are men who look good with it and some of them can even pull off a cute man-bun. Sometimes, I also like blond guys, but usually they have dark hair.
♥ 1,90m or taller: It is so hard to find hot, tall guys who are into tall girls. I don’t know why, but I feel that most tall guys look for shorties, which is pretty frustrating for tall girls like me. It would be so nice to wear heels and not tower over my boyfriend.
♥ blue or brown eyes: I don’t know why, but I think it’s hotter. I have green eyes and I love them, but I feel that blue or brown works better for guys. I know, I’m weird.
♥ tolerant/open-minded: I hate intolerance and I will put up a fight with whoever shows such behavior. Just the thought of having someone by my side who says bad things about other people because of their religion, skin color or sexual orientation makes me want to vomit. That’s not going to work with me. In general, I need someone who is open for new things and doesn’t judge me or others for being different.
♥ confident: If you want to put up with me, you sure as hell have to be confident or I’ll eat you for breakfast. I have enough confidence for ten people, which could be a little tough to handle.
♥ a job and a car would be nice: Nope, not writing this because I’m looking for a sugar-daddy. I just like to have someone in my life who works and is able to afford things, so we can do things together. I plan on working for my own money.
♥ 3-4 years older than me: Well, I guess age is not the most important thing. If you’re a match, you’re a match. Personally, I just can’t imagine being with someone who is a lot older than me. But most of the time, I’m into younger guys anyway, so I have nothing to worry about. Isn’t it in style to date younger men?! The only problem with that is that I’m 27 and I don’t think dating a 20-year-old would be such a great fit. Ten years later though, I think it’s less of a problem, meaning that 30 and 37 works better than 20 and 27. But that’s just my opinion. In the end, there is no guarantee for anything, anyway.
♥ casual style: I’m just not a fan of guys who overdo it. All those fashion victims make me want to run for the hills. Leave the skinny jeans in the women’s department and stop steeling your sister’s scarves. Wear jeans, a shirt, sneakers, and a cap or beanie and you’re my kind of guy. Just keep it simple.
♥ a good sense of humor: I need someone I can laugh with for hours and who doesn’t take himself too seriously. If you’re too serious, I will drive you insane and it’s just fun to goof around.
♥ no chest or armpit hair: I’ve always had this weird thing with body hair. Armpit hair is the worst. And since guys expect us to shave, I can expect the same in return.
♥ likes to read: I just think it’s nice to lie next to each other and read. Knowing me, I’m pretty sure though that I would find it annoying. But I dated a guy once, who told me that he has pretty much never read a book in his life and I should’ve just ran for the hills. He was so stupid.
♥ loves all kind of music: I’m not good with people who focus too much on one specific genre. I find it boring and it will ultimately lead to fight. I need someone who is open-minded because my taste in music is extremely diverse.
♥ not clingy: Sorry, but I don’t have time for you 24/7. I have a life with or without you and I’m not willing to let it all go just for you.
♥ athletic body: Yeah, superficial me, but that’s just the way I like it. Women with curves: YAY! Men with curves: NO! I’m such a hypocrite. But trust me, not all of the guys I’ve been into looked like models for GQ.
♥ not into marriage and children: This is just not for me. I’ve never ever envisioned this for my life and I don’t think it’s going to change. People always tell to wait until the right guy shows up, but I don’t think there is a guy in this world that could change my mind. If there is, I will probably die of a heart attack before we make it to the altar. And about the children – I like them, I’m good with them, I just don’t want my own.
♥ not have a million female friends: Here is the thing, I’ve never been a very jealous person and boy did I regret that. I know I can’t control someone’s friendships, and I don’t want to, but depending on how deep the friendship is, I would definitely be concerned. I can’t help it, I know where these things can lead. Furthermore, I know how guys who are in relationships and “just friends” with me can act. But I admit, even a guy has zero female friends, there is always the possibility of him creeping around.
♥ Macho with a big heart: Unfortunately, I’m one of this macho-loving girls who don’t know what to do with nice guys. He can be as bad as he wants to be, he just has to have his heart in the right place. Everything else, I can handle.
♥ doesn’t want to party all the time: Yeah, that’s not gonna happen with me. It’s ok once in a while but I prefer to stay in. I’m boring like that and I’m not a big fan of going out with my boyfriend, anyway.
♥ loves me for me: I’m sure that this is ultimately what everybody wishes for in a relationship.
♥ honest and faithful: DUH!
♥ educated: Correct grammar is super sexy. He doesn’t have to be Einstein, but I want to be able to have intelligent conversations and not feel embarrassed when he opens his mouth. Been there, done that. I also don’t want to have a partner who makes me feel like I have to hide the fact that I have a Master’s degree etc.
♥ should be able to challenge me: I don’t like YES-guys. I need a man, not a lap dog. In a good relationship, you have to be able to fight and you can’t agree on anything.
So, if anyone knows a guy like this, send him to me and it wouldn’t hurt if he looked anything like these hotties.
