What women want in a man

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Do you agree with this:

Women Say THIS Is the Ideal Man
* 92 percent of women want their man to be dependable--someone they can count on.
* 90 percent of women say their ideal man is low-maintenance and easy-going.
* 88 percent want a man who will make them laugh.
* 72 percent say they want a guy who enjoys spending his free time doing jobs around the house. In other words, he should spend his time hanging a mirror instead of standing in front of one.
* 41 percent say their ideal is a sports fan.
* 10 percent want a guy who spends his precious free time shopping for designer clothes.
* Only 9 percent are ISO a man who spends free time with a personal trainer.

Other oddities:

* 75 percent of women say the ideal man does not buy his shampoo in a salon. No, no, no. He gets it in the same store as he buys milk and eggs.
* 61 percent want a man with rough, hard-working hands instead of hands that are soft and manicured.
* 47 percent say their ideal man spends his money on electrical gadgets instead of cosmetics.

Bottom line: Women want a man who works hard, plays hard, and is strong and capable. He should be confident and energetic. He needs to have a good sense of humor--both to be able to make others laugh and to even laugh at his own foibles on occasion.

Yeah pretty much-that's the kind of man I'd want. I would also add "that accepts or loves cats!"

I don't know about you or others but most of the men I have met/dated either HATES or are allegric to cats..

Very good for the men to see! We want "nice" qualities not mirror qualities!

BTW: My hubby dosen't buy salon shampoo, but gets it free from my work... does he still count?

Hmmmm.. Now I think I know why I haven't dated for the last 3-5 years! Cuz most of the men I know who are single AND who I MIGHT be interested in are either allergic to or hates cats.

I agree - not with the children bit though because I'm not having children, and also it doesn't matter to me where he buys his shampoo!

Looking at that list I was saying to myself, "Check, check, me, me again, yep that's me..." (Just kidding! ) That's an interesting list of purported facts Susie.
post #11 of 23
I want to add that he needs to be able to clean up nicely too. He needs to be comfortable with a board in his hand or in the boardroom.

I agree with all of them! I'd add that a "handy" man who can build things and fix things, is very important.

Gotta admit that's one thing I adore about Bradley
Another one to add: A man who agrees in EQUAL power in a relationship. A man who wants all the power and control means DANGER!!!!!!!!

Carrot Top! Waaaaaay too sexy for me.


Personally? I don't care where a man buys his shampoo, his clothing, or whatever he's into as far as personal hygeine, as long as he's got some! Soft hands, rough hands, makes no real difference to me in the end....my question is - can those hands protect me from harm and be willing to save my life if needed?
But above all - there's a special quality I love, and that is, when a man makes you feel like you're the most beautiful woman in the room, and he means it. Sincerity is so seductive when it's sincere! I absolutely have to have a man who means what he says and says what he means.

And I'd add one thing: I need to be able to exchange ideas with my guy -- so he needs to be comfortable with the possibility that I have a brain, and can use it. I want conversation -- lots of it, on lots of subjects, all the time.

I agree with a lot of it, but I like a man who cares enough about himself to buy the best for his hair and nice clothes.
post #20 of 23
Mine claimed that he hated cats when I first met him. He quickly came over from the dark side when he got to know my cat at the time (Hippocrates). He is very much a dog person, but when I asked him last night if he could choose only 1 pet would he choose between Stumpy (cat) or Sam (dog). He said Stumpy. That got him lots of points!

Generally agree with the list, but would like to add 1 trait: One that will do things around the house without being asked or reminded.
post #21 of 23
While I agree with many of the original aspects and a lot of the added ones too, I just have to say that my idea of the perfect man is one with whom I feel safe - I can say what I really feel, I can act how I really am, and I don't have to worry about what he will think of me if I do both of those things.

My husband, Maury is such a man and I am blessed that he accepted when I asked him to marry me! LOL
post #22 of 23
Yep I agree with those things but Eddie and Fran you have got it down to a tee for me. It's so important to me that hubby and I have good conversations and can debate issues - without having to agree with one another. Being able to agree to disagree is so valuable in a relationship.
