Study Finds Women's Perfect Man

Women Not All Juicehead-Creeping Guidettes

After asking 2,500 women what they want in a man, PollOne discovered what we've known all along: women don't want a man who's is perfect. But what's more shockingly ignorant is what it seems to think is perfect. "Publicly, girls will claim they want a muscly guy, who is hair free and manly enough not to show his emotional side"

So what are the (un)surprising turn-ons? Women "secretly" prefer stubbly over a smooth-shaven face and men who have a little extra padding and are a little, just a bit, geeky. Another stupefying finding? Sixty-three percent of women said they'd rather a man who got ready quickly than one who fusses over his appearance. So much for GTL!

I love wearing skirts in the summer but it is far too frigid for that here, too. If I'm going to a concert or a club I'll get done up, but if I'm just going out to the bar or a party or the grocery store I'm not going to put on eyeliner and heels. Women who do that drive me crazy.

I live in Cleveland. I wear jeans too, of course! But it would be great if I didn't.

I prefer a guy who doesn't spend too much time on his appearance... I love getting done up sometimes, but I prefer to go plain faced and wear a t shirt. I wouldn't want a guy to be more done up with me. I like a guy with a couple extra pounds, too. It makes me feel less insecure about my own couple extra pounds. This survey is right on when it comes to the stubble though. I love stubble and I love guys with hairy chests. Waxing is a woman's domain. Women are supposed to be fresh and smooth and sexy. Men are supposed to be rugged and sweaty and hairy. I'm not attracted to a guy I can't have an intelligent conversation with, and geeks are generally the best at intelligent conversation. Snarkypants I agree. He has TERRIBLE posture and his head is pointy. And he's an ass.

I'll take my geeky husband over those over-muscled guidos any day.

I think women want a guy who looks like he spends Heidi Montag dollars on his face and body, but just rolls out of bed looking like that. And of course, extra points if he's a total geek!
