We all have our own ideas of what the perfect man looks like, but all of us agree on the traits of that ideal partner. How many of them does your current cutie possess? Let's find out.
He doesn't have to hold a PhD in Physics to be "intelligent," but Mr. Perfect does have to be smart, right? He'd have to hold his own in a conversation about current events and it doesn't hurt if he's well-read, too.
This is key! You don't want to be anywhere near a man who's misogynistic or racist of elitist, and overall, you just want a guy who shows respect for everyone, including you.
A little kindness goes a long way, and it's one of my absolute must-have traits in any partner or friend. It goes hand in hand with compassion, and a willingness and need, really, to help others.
There's a line between confidence and arrogance; which side does your guy fall on?
Choose a man who makes you laugh, and you'll be happy forever.
Wit is sort of the combination of intelligence and humor, with some keen-ness thrown in. Add clever word-play, and be still my heart.
Whether he's shy or flirtatious, a guy who knows how to turn on the (genuine) charm is my weakness.
If he puts the needs of others above his own, and does it without complaint, then he's met another of my "killer app" criteria.
Not necessarily "I Love You," though those three words are important too. I'm talking about "I am sorry." In other words, a guy needs to be able to admit when he's wrong, and not be too proud to admit it.
Actually, now that I think of it, all of these traits are ones we should try to achieve in ourselves, too. Which of these are most important to you? What would you add to my list?
