Who’s the “Perfect Woman?”
Apparently I am… almost. In the Boston area.
According to a survey conducted on the dating/auction site What’s Your Price (Wow I didn’t realize online prostitution was legal now), clients in the Boston area said their “Perfect Woman”
- has red hair;
- has green eyes;
- is a social drinker;
- does not smoke; and
- has both a bachelor’s and master’s degree.
I’m sans a master’s degree, but I’ll continue to be near-perfect as long as I keep appointments with my colorist.
Apparently, those seeking men in the Boston area have higher standards. The “Perfect Man”
- earns $100,000 to $150,000 a year;
- has a bachelor’s degree;
- has brown hair;
- has blue eyes;
- sports an athletic build;
- is a social drinker; and
- doesn’t smoke.
I’m not married to the “Perfect Man,” but I’m married to the man who is perfect for me. Why? He is:
- intelligent (he has a formal education, but that’s not what makes him smart);
- the yang to my yin; and
- someone who makes me a better person.
I asked my husband for bullet points about why he is with me. These are them, verbatim. I:
- have a good sense of humor;
- can take a punch (HA HA);
- am “no bullshit”;
- am low maintenance;
- am artsy;
don’t want kids; and
am “wicked smaht kid.”
What qualities do you value or look for in a mate? Who’s your “Perfect Person”? Do you think the “What’s Your Price?” clients’ standards are unrealistic?
