    This is mostly trash. But if there were a survey done of gay men, I'd think the desirable attributes would be quite different.

    Well, the guys are going to love this one.

    While there may be someone out there who's perfect for you, we all know the perfect person simply doesn’t exist. Still, researchers wanted to know what qualities women want in men, and their results reveal "the perfect man."

    According to the poll by Austin Reed, the perfect man earns about $77K a year, drinks beer and drives an Audi.

    But wait, men. Before you get bent out of shape, there's even more.

    Women also want men to have stylish clothes, a good body and a clean-shaven face. In fact, in the survey of 2,000 women, they list those qualities as a "must." The hipster beards just aren't cutting it anymore.

    The perfect guy also can swim, rides a bike, and makes family his top priority.

    Anything else?

    Yep. Eighty-six percent of women polled say they want a sensitive man who calls his mom regularly and cries during movies.

    According to The Huffington Post, a spokesperson for Austin Reed said:
    "It would seem that women have high expectations when it comes to the perfect man. How a man is presented is obviously going to be a huge part of that. While women don’t want a man to be too preened, they would like him to be stylish and up to date with current trends."

    And we're not even done yet. Women also prefer men to be 6 feet tall with short, dark hair and brown eyes. Can we be any more specific? Yes, we can. He must also be a carnivore.

    I, for one, respectfully disagree with these results. Among other "imperfect" traits, my ideal man drives a '97 Nissan and can't swim for crap.

    Here's a full list of qualities the perfect man apparently possesses:

    1. 6 feet tall
    2. Toned and athletic
    3. Brown eyes
    4. Short dark hair
    5. Smart dress sense
    6. Beer drinker
    7. Non-smoker
    8. Wears smart jeans, shirt and a V-neck jumper
    9. Gets ready in 17 minutes
    10. Stylish
    11. Wants a family
    12. Earns £48,000 ($77,000) a year
    13. Loves shopping
    14. Eats meat
    15. Clean shaven
    16. Smooth chest
    17. Watches soaps
    18. Enjoys watching football
    19. Drives an Audi
    20. Educated to degree level
    21. Earns more than his other half
    22. Jokes around and has a laugh
    23. Sensitive when his wife/girlfriend is upset
    24. Says 'I love you' only when he means it
    25. Admits it when he looks at other women
    26. Has a driver's license
    27. Can swim
    28. Can ride a bike
    29. Can change a tire
    30. Calls mom regularly

    The perfect man: One who doesn't spend all his free time looking up surveys of what the perfect man is supposed to be like.

    Well I'm out of the "perfect" man race based on the list I see here if clean shaven is the requirement. Hell no, I'm a grown man now and I want my masculine natural testoterone to be on display in my beard and/or goatee. When I was a youngster, a little boy lion moving towards maturity, I always wanted to be able to grow facial hair like my dad and the other full grown men in my family but I couldn't, but now I am a full grown man like they were and I love it! hahaha. A man (Simba) is in the house now, lol. This thread made me feel good about my self now, thanks dude.
