Who Is The Perfect Man or Woman?

An online survey recently revealed the results of Boston's perfect man and woman.

It's something people have been debating for years—What makes the perfect man or woman?

The online dating-auction site WhatsYourPrice.com recently revealed what thousands of Bostonians consider the perfect man and woman, according to a survey conducted among its clients.

The perfect woman: 

  • Has red hair;
  • Green eyes;
  • Is a social drinker;
  • Does not smoke; and
  • Has both a bachelor's and master’s degree.

The perfect man:

  • Earns $100,000 to $150,000 a year;
  • Has a bachelor's degree;
  • Has brown hair;
  • Blue eyes;
  • Sports an athletic build;
  • Is a social drinker; and
  • Doesn’t smoke.

According to Leroy Velasquez, a public relations spokesman for WhatsYourPrice.com, Boston was the only city, out of 30, to put such a high ranking on red hair for women and a man's education.

Dumbest article ever (not you patch). How many people fall under those criteria, 1%, 3%? What's the point, just to promote and further the superficial expectations of society?

How about kind, loving, helpful, willing to compromise, regardless of gender?

i was thinking more along the lines of: not incarcerated has 30 teeth or more is paid up to the IRS and not too gassy.

That fits a politician.

Hey Patch, nice to see that you cited the impeccable research done by whatsyourprice.com, which is essentially an online pimp service. I anxiously await your upcoming feature on the Perfect Victim based on surveys conducted at SerialKillerHideaway.com.

From the "dating" web site...Once you find the people you'd like to date, ask them out by making an offer. If you're a generous user, name the price you're willing to pay for the first date. And, if you're an attractive user, name the price you want to get paid for the first date. Our offer negotiating system will allow you to accept an offer, reject an offer, or counter with a different price. No surprise that the members are superficial. http://www.forbes.com/sites/elisadoucette/2011/04/19/paying-for-dates-a-sleazy-proposition-or-personal-investment/
