A question every man begs to hear the answer to (well, majority of those in this forum anyway. Kidding), so lets put them out of their misery and enlighten them.


For me, I want a very down to earth guy. I want someone who is confident, but also humble and friendly man. Perhaps a little artistic or musical, with a sense of humour (I like sarcasm, funnily enough). No poseurs please!

Physically and ideally, he would be taller than me and have blue/green eyes.
Long/wavy hair a plus. [Wink]

Hmm, well I'm not confident or humble, and I don't often do sarcasm. I don't have blue/green eyes, or long/wavy hair, either. And some probably regard me as a poseur.

Ah well, back to the drawing board. [Wink]

You know, in one of my less politically correct moments, I figured that "Shake it like a Parkinson's victim" fitted perfectly in there, too. [evil]

What I want in a partner:

highly independent/determined
not blonde
relatively tall (I don't want to get on my knees to be able to kiss them comfortably)
intelligent
quiet/well mannered
doesn't babble
comfortable in their own skin (I have no patience for people who don't believe in themselves)

*swoons*
[Razz]

Here, in no particular order, is what I like:
* independent
* smart
* active (I like guys who play)
* adventuresome
* tolerant (that's more of a need...)
* considerate
* respectful of self and others
* not selfish or jealous
* open-minded
* not overly religious (more for his sake than mine)
* sense of humor

As far as physical appearance, neat and clean is a good start. I'm not too fond of smoker breath. I'm not too fond of pretty boys either, but pretty boys aren't really attracted to me so that's not a big deal. I don't really have any hard and fast rules about looks because that's kind of secondary in how I pick men. A nice face might spark my interest, but if there isn't a sense of humor or brain to back that face up I'm not interested. Likewise, if a guy maybe isn't so cute but is fun to talk to and hang out with I'll probably be in the throes of a massive crush within a week. The best way to catch my attention is crack a really witty joke in my hearing. And then the full inspection begins...

Thank you, ma'am! 9 out of 10 wouldn't be considered bad where I come from. But then again, perhaps Mrs. garlicguy would care to argue the point.

Hmm, well I should be able to nudge it up to 10/10 if I convert to Catholicism. Oh wait, I forgot romantic. Hey, that can be learnt, can't it? [Wink]

Edit: Hey, I meet all the criteria on jordanv's list, too. And we're both in Sydney. Please tell me you're a female Jordan [Wink]

Hmmm... Looking at BW and Xanthines' list they read like 99% of the profiles I've read at match.com in the last 4 years. Ah Ha! See all women do want the same thing! They want er, ah.... what was that again? Sorry, the game was on and I didn't want to miss that play. Hey, can you grab me a beer while you're up? [shake head]

Well...no.

But when I was younger I wanted to grow up to be a lesbian! (not kidding, I got in trouble for saying it in Year 1)

The women's club at Sydney Uni wouldn't let me in [cry baby]

Not even quoting the Life of Brian could get them to see my viewpoint:

Judith: [on Stan's desire to be a mother] Here! I've got an idea: Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb - which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans' - but that he can have the *right* to have babies.

Back to the topic: Dear females - lower your standards enough so that I meet them

Hrm.. just for fun:

check: 5' 10"
Workin' on it: 215lbs
ah... no
check
check
check

Well, I fair better on BW's list then Xanthine's, that's for sure.

It's all moot anyway, though, as I'm already taken. [hearts]

Great right-to-the-point question!

Most importantly, I would like a man who is authentic -- that is, not afraid to be himself, and who doesn't feel the need to act a certain way or say certain things in order to gain the approval of others (including me).

Other important qualities:
- Intelligent, not in terms of "book knowledge" but someone who reflects on that knowledge and uses it wisely
- Sensitive to others' feelings, compassionate, caring, respectful
- Confident in his own opinions, but without feeling the need to impose those opinions on others
- Open-minded
- Someone with a similar set of values, i.e., who has the same priorities in life
- Spiritual, but not in the religious sense -- someone in touch with his spiritual nature, who recognizes himself as a soul that has a body, not a body that has a soul
- A man who still has that mischievious boyish glint in his eyes, regardless of chronological age
- Willing to take a risk for the right reasons -- adventurous (but not too adventurous [Smile] )
- Someone who will commit himself to me as much as I will to him (i.e., unconditionally and unequivocally)
- Someone who listens -- both because he cares about what others have to say, and because I talk a lot! [Roll Eyes]
- A guy who is great at making love rather than having sex
- Someone who loves music
- Great sense of humor
- Good conversationalist (but see above [Wink] )
- Someone who has either worked through his demons or who has learned how to deal with them
- A man who can be my best friend as well as my lover

The more superficial aspects:
- Ideally 6 feet or taller
- Slim to medium build (at any rate, "fit")
- Non-smoker
- I tend to go for a full head of hair, but I've seen some pretty attractive bald men around
- Beautiful smiling eyes
- A dynamite smile (the right smile can make me swoon)
- A sexy voice will do it, too
- Good kisser

Guys: please note that the top list (of intangible things that matter most) is longer than the match.com-type bottom one.

Hey Tech Angel - are you sure that list couldn't be a bit more prescriptive? I think you left out that the guy must have exactly seventeen pairs of shoes and a cat called 'Nigel'.

- Beautiful.
- Good kisser.
- Interesting.
- Caring.
- Good in the sack. [Wink]
