The perfect significant other....

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My other thread started me on a tangent about what I like in my significant other. I realize no one is perfect, but if I could do a "Weird Science" thing and make the perfect guy, it would be:
Personality: Sarcastic, witty, but not rude. Knows when to be serious, and when not to be. Able to adapt well in a crowd of unfamiliar people or surroundings, not just be a wallflower and giving me the "can we leave now" look.
Likes and dislikes: Outdoorsy, likes fishing, camping, nature and wildlife. And domestic animals too. Not too into sports, maybe just football (but if he was I wouldn't mind, just that I don't like sports except football) Motorcycle would be good, but not always going to bars every weekend while riding. I hate that when people drink and drive, especially when someone's on the back! Wants kids is a must. Non smoker. No drugs. Must have a job, no freeloaders! It doesn't have to be a great paying job, but I've had guys mooch off me before and that doesn't work for me.
Looks: Think Griffin from party of 5 (anyone feel free to post a picture of Jeremy London here ) Ruggedly handsome, not too pretty. Goatee is a plus, and I have a thing for glasses, too. Well, that's all I can think of right now, that's my perfect guy. Where are you?!
What would be/is your perfect scenario?

Hmmmmmmmmm
Blue/Green eyes is a must
Has to be funny and outgoing and not so jealous, wanting kids is a must too

Wow!

Except the sports thing, you just described my Jeremy.
He's into Football, Basketball and Baseball, and he plays softball.

No motorcycle yet, but there are plans for one.

I have my perfect man! Although he has faults, he is what I want in a guy, so I'm happy.

Mmmm, I like the classy-looking blond gentleman who leaves Rainer Maria Rilke love poems in my sheet music who is sitting directly to my right.

OMG, I about fell out of my chair!!! Hmmm...he looks familiar...Canadian maybe?
Well, that IS just about perfect! Can you add a fishing pole to his clenched hands?

Let's see... the perfect guy (aside from the one in the photo) would have to be:
- very smart and open minded. I need someone I can have intelligent discussions with.
- a geek. I love geeks
- He has to love cartoons. I need someone who would want to watch old Simpsons episodes with me for the 4 billionth time and still find them funny.
- good sense of humor, silly
- willing to put up with my mood swings and reassure me when I'm panicking over nothing
- he'd have to be poor, just like me. No need for great career ambitions but willing to work hard on things he is passionate about.
- likes to do the dishes (or willing to buy a dishwasher )

as far as looks go... not too much muscles. Maybe looking like Johnny Depp or Edward Norton.

oh geez.
Well, pretty much everything my current boyfriend is not?

he's in a band, lives paycheck to paycheck, has a hard time talking about feelings.

I want someone with an actual job and who isn't afraid of commitment and who doesn't chew tobacco. The tobacco thing can be a real deal breaker for me. And who also doesn't mind having a girlfriend who doesn't party.

wow I just made my relationship sound really dysfunctional. it probably is!

Well, I have my perfect significant other

I always told my mom and aunts that I wanted to marry someone that had the same traits as my Dad and Grandfather - and I found him!

Taller than me, dark brown eyes, skinny, but muscular. Hard worker, enjoys the outdoors and the biggest part -he has to be a family guy - and he is!

Oh yeah, and he looks really good in a pair of chaps when he's riding on his harley

post #14 of 28
Yeah, my Ian pretty much fits the bill of what I've always wanted:
-Smart.
-Quick on the uptake. Has to be able to keep up with my brain, which is no small feat.
-Well-read
-Informed
-Very nurturing and caring
-We all say it, but sensitive; can talk about emotions, knows he has them, etc.
-Somewhat adventurous without being a brainless thrillseeker
-Articulate, a good writer.
-LIKES ANIMALS.
-Cultured
-Well-dressed/groomed
-Good taste in music
-Understands my extreme love for and vocation in the performing arts
-Compassionate
-Liberal (sounds stupid, but I really doubt I could be with someone who's political beliefs are completely opposite from mine and my family's)
-Enjoys many of the same activities I do (mostly really artsy endeavors), but also has his own interests that I don't necessarily share (he likes hockey and baseball, and I'm not a sports fan)

Perfection to me is someone who gets me, who, when they look at me, they see me, and nothing else. Some one sarcastic and playfully witty, a realist with a deep romantic and thoughful streak. Some one who is very open minded politically and religiously, loves cats, wants a baby, believes in a true and equal 'partnership', and loves to be spontaneous and goofy. And a love of learning and strong ambition with whatever it is they want to do in life is a must. I love dark hair, smoldering eyes, the rugged shadowy facial hair look, and glasses are a huge turn on. But really, I am attracted to all looks/cultures, but this is just idealistic. The only thing that I am not attracted to is extremely skinny men, they can't be smaller than me, lol.

Perfect man? My husband Jim with the following changes:

He would dance like Al Pacino in scent of a woman.
He'd have billions earned legally and stored away earning high interest.
He would enjoy jewelry and shoe shopping.
He'd like the bedroom temperature set to 65 at night.
And he would always let me hold the remote control.

Help wanted: Male.

Must have a sense of humor and be able to laugh at himself. Must like animals.

Physical requirements: twinkling eyes, that light up, when he sees me; strong shoulders, just right for laying my head on or crying on; lips that smile a lot and can kiss me silly; hands that are strong enough to open the pickle jar, yet gentle enough to stroke my cheek.

I often wish Jeremy could dance.....all the money I spent on ballroom dance lessons, wasted!

I did tell him you said to send him your way when I was done with him.

LOL he said Wisconsin huh? What's this woman look like?
post #20 of 28
Someone who treats me well would be an advancement for me. And takes care of me when I need it, lets me take care of them when he needs it.

Lol, well, he'd have to dance for me too! That's so sexy when a guy can dance, and I don't mean turning in a circle, I mean really gettin down! I can post a pic if he wants.... Does he have any brothers?
post #22 of 28
He has a brother, but I wouldn't wish that man on my worst enemy.
Sweet guy, just not relationship material.
Total polar opposites.

Interesting thread, but I'll just mention a few things I find ideal. Given she likes me.........

She must love kitties! (This is new as of a few years ago.) She should have some self-esteem. Women who have none can't say no to anyone and end up trying to please everyone but you. She should also have a sense of fun by being able to indulge in dessert sometimes, or be willing to try a scary ride at an amusement park, (or something like that). She must be smart. She should take good care of herself, as I try to do the same. She must also be snuggly and cuddly.

Let's see... perfect female xD
Must like cars, animals (especially cats), guns and music, but not be a tomboy. Piercings and tattoos are +3 points...
hmm, that's all I can think of right now.

My husband is the perfect man for me!!

He cleans, cooks, works hard, is very understanding, loves the cats, and yes he does have a 99 harley, red 82 t-top corvette(which I drive), dodge ram truck. He is just awsome!! We are very compatable, and i couldn't ask for anything more in my life!

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in London, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.

You may visit the store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights.

There is, however, a catch: you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: .

Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

Brandon, too bad you are so far away, my daughter seems like she would be just your type. She restored a 1963 Mustang, did all the work by herself, except the paint job, and won 3rd place in her first car show. She has a big dragon tattooed from the nape of her neck to the middle of her shoulder blades. She will learning to shoot soon, as her job with a security company requires it. She loves her kitties, one of which she has has for 14 years. And she's cute a a button!
