The perfect man for you (or me)

Ladies, I have the perfect boyfriend/husband for you. His name is Daniel and he is looking for a girlfriend. All you have to do is meet his 36 expectations.

Now, nowโ€ฆbe kind. The poor man has been single for a whileโ€ฆ

Men, what do you think about this guy?

  1. Obviously, such a specimen will spend a lot of time alone. However…we all have lists. My sister had a good friend who had one…we laughed at her, saying she must be perfect, to demand all of that. And, admittedly, she was a great deal for anyone who could catch her. But the list! What she was, was single. And near doomed to stay that way. Finally my sister sat down with her and went through the list. Sheesh. They lost about a third of it. One of the requirements was “tall.”
    “Tall!?” My sister screeched, “What are you going to do with tall?” After all, her friend was all of about 5’1″. And so went many of the list criteria. They redrafted and ended up with intelligent, funny, self-supporting, handy, outdoorsy. That was it. Setting her sights on what was important–and focusing on that was what she needed. Within a year, she was steady dating a terrific guy. Now they’re married with kids. Short, though, as if it mattered.

  2. I had a friend from high school who was single (never married) when we turned 40 and she had a list of what a guy โ€˜must haveโ€™ before she would date him. It wasnโ€™t as ridiculous list, but the rest of our group knew sheโ€™d never find anyone if she stuck to her list. The last I heard sheโ€™s still single.

    1. I read blogs of people who date of varying ages and have heard that many have lists for potential partners. Not all are unreasonable like this one but in some cases I do wonder if they realize just how unrealistic their expectations are. It does make me wonder about the power of algorithms in these dating apps.

      This guy’s list is either fake or brutally honest (and immature). But it’s the first time I’ve seen a list composed by a man.

    2. I suspect the issue for her too is that the man who meets every criteria on her “list,” exists, he has the gamut of women of all ages to choose from.

      We’re all unique and gifted in our own right but very, very few of us are that special. Don’t just settle but don’t outkick your coverage either.

      1. I think we are all special, but I understand your point. I do think everyone has things they would like in a partner and things that are deal breakers. If either list is too long, youโ€™re going to likely end up alone. Just my opinion.

  3. oh jeez… if he’s real then he’s a loser and if this is all crap then the person writing it (trying to be funny I suppose) is probably a dick because I assume male…and I do not apologize for the language.

    1. Maybe I should draw up a list, should I ever find myself in his position – “must have own opinions”, “must not complain at how much I like pizza”, “must like rubbish movies”, and so on ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. At least he’s specific and knows what he wants, I guess. It doesn’t mean he’s healthy in any way and I believe he must have hired other people to help wave all of those big red flags.

    Many of his demands are purely subjective and are purely in the eye of the beholder while others sound like they’d be a pain in the ass (14,21,31, specifically.) Some of his other demands are painfully cringeworthy and provide insight into the fact that he’s an insecure and small man.

    The problem he has, among many, is that no single woman is likely to meet even 25% of his remotely reasonable demands and if she did I find it unlikely that she’d put up with him.

    I’m not going to dogpile on Random_Male_01, but I despise these posts from men as much as I despise them from women.

    1. Or, he’s as fed up with Online Dating as most people I know are and he composed a list of his deepest desires knowing most of these items are completely unrealistic and unattainable. Or, the whole thing is fake. Either way, ugh… ๐Ÿ˜‰
