I picked C. Respect is a big deal for me so I want a guy who's respectful to himself and others, which comes along with politeness. I do want a guy who has strong morals and will strongly stand by them. I also like when guys are driven and passionate about something, aren't self centered and cares for others. Kindness, intelligence, generosity, open mindedness and understanding are also important to me. And I love a guy who can get me talking and make me laugh.
Oh and patience is important. Many people just give up on me because I'm so quiet. Only those few stick around so I can open up to them.
Smart, funny, Christian, educated, confident, honest, and a decent guy. And yes, I would like him to have a good job and a good income. It'd be nice if I could be a stay at home mom for at least a few years after having children.
These might seem like a lot of standards, but I date to marry, and these are the things I don't believe I can compromise on. Things like good looks and status are nice, but they're not as important in the long run.
My parents have been married for 34 years now and happiness, loyalty, and love were their keys to their marriage. They didn't say anything about wealth, status, and power. As long as trust, humor, and love is around, it'll last. :)
Lot's of guys/girls go for looks&fortune.. For me I go for a guy who can make me laugh,hold up a good conversation, every time I see them I get butterflies.. They have to be nice&a good personality and honest. Or at least have some of those qualities. I also do have to have attraction towards the guy.. They don't have to be the most attractive or best looking, I just have to feel attracted in a certain way.
Of those, I would say C. But honestly the most important thing is for him to have a dynamic, fun, outgoing personality. I like someone who is quirky and weird and maybe a little awkward but not afraid to be himself.
2) Wealth. Wealth and status go hand and hand anymore, so putting those as separate answers is redundant. Women love to show off, and putting a rich guy on their arm is just another form of show-woman-ship.
3) A nice guy. Yes, nice guys finish last and being nice is last on the list. Surprise, surprise. Guys don't spend dozens of hours a week busting their asses at the gym, years in school getting a good education, and don the most uncomfortable dress shoes known to man just because its the cool thing to do. We do it because we're expected to and its a requirement for finding a good mate.
Prominent chin and brow ridge, defined cheekbones, square and chiseled jawline, broad forehead, facial symmetry, height and broad shoulders. On top of this he needs to understand basic social conventions, have reasonable hygiene, and if over the age of 23, a decent income.
Beyond this it becomes very subjective and depends on the individual girl, they often have completely opposite preferences. For example, some girls will like very muscular guys others will like skinny guys, some will like 'nice guys' others will like 'jerks'.
It makes me chuckle that no girl has voted A yet, if you look at this diagram which shows the amount of messages men receive on the dating site okcupid against their income and age you'll see how important wealth is. Its hardly worth listening to women on this subject, either they don't know what attracts them or they are incapable of being honest about it. link
