We’ve talked about lists before. To do lists, shopping lists, celebrity exemption lists…and now we’re adding the perfect man checklist to…our list!
Inspired by the perfect man-ism exalted by the Old Spice Man (jokes aside, that man is damn fine) and some other good fellows (hello, Leo and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Inception), we took to the office and compiled a list of the qualities that top our Staffers’ lists.
Needless to say with a lot of cooks in the kitchen the list was quite long—so here are the top 20 traits!
Since perfect is pretty much, um, not possible, we’d say if you could find a guy with 5-10, you’re golden (bonus points on those physical traits!).
1. A sense of humor
3. A gentlemen
4. A strong ambition to succeed
5. Sensitive (but not too sensitive)
7. A good listener
8. Loves dogs and kids
9. Not too needy
10. Steady source of income
15. Socially aware
16. Driven, but not aggressively so
17. Family oriented
19. A heart of gold
Bonus Five Physical Traits:
2. Perfect teeth
4. Abs of steel
5. Looks (damn) good in a suit!
GIRL TALK TIME: What qualities are on the list for your perfect man? Which ones are most important to you? Have you ever turned down a guy because he didn’t fit all of your criteria?
