What Do You Want in a Man?

Romance | Maturity | Lifestyle | Looks

less romantic more romantic

Although you’re a sucker for romance, you’ll probably cut a guy some slack even if he doesn’t constantly pamper you with gifts and affection. You crave passion in your relationships, so you want a guy who can (and will) express his deepest feelings for you through his actions. Someone like Richard Gere or George Clooney, perhaps? But you know that men aren’t very romantic, so you’re willing to lower your standards in this area if need be. Chances are you’re willing to stick around once the courting period ends, though it’s still very important that your guy occasionally dote upon you. Your realistic-yet-hopeful outlook will guarantee you a good catch!

Love might be a serious game, but it should still be fun. Too much sophistication can kill the romance. But we didn’t have to tell you that. It sounds like you always go for the kind of guy who knows how to cut loose and just be himself. Practicality and maturity are respectable qualities, sure, and no man should be completely without them, but they’ve never been high on your list of important ingredients for an exciting night out. Based on your answers, we think your perfect guy — someone like Jerry Seinfeld or Cuba Gooding Jr., perhaps? — should know how to have a great time without acting too childish or outrageous. Whether he adds a little bit of danger to your life or just has a great sense of humor, your ideal man would still be young enough at heart to let the kid in him emerge.

Love doesn’t come cheap, but it doesn’t have to be all that expensive, either. It sounds like you’re not very concerned about your ideal man’s financial situation. Of course, we all dream of living well, but it’s a mistake to mix your expectations of love with your hopes for a first-class lifestyle. Based on your answers, it seems like money isn’t a real romantic concern for you. On the airplane of love, you’re just as happy traveling coach as first class. (Two TV guys who live up to your financial expectations — or lack thereof — are Chandler and Ross from “Friends.”) Being detached from materialist concerns is a healthy, realistic attitude and should help make you happy. It means that when Mr. Right crosses your path, you’ll be sure to recognize him and not worry about the size of his wallet.

You may not judge a book entirely by its cover, but you definitely like the cute ones. (Who doesn’t?!) You might consider someone who’s a little less than gorgeous, but you generally tend to seek out very handsome men who can really turn heads. Matt Damon? Noah Wyle? Right up your alley. But if need be, you’re willing to place personality and chemistry before a pretty face and a hot body. Nevertheless, your answers reveal that you take pride in your man’s appearance and get a thrill out of watching others gawk at him. You’re impressed by looks, and you definitely set your standards high when it comes to physical appearance. Still, you also realize that beauty may be only skin deep and that an average-looking guy with tons of charm might be your perfect match in every other way!
