Single Women Share What They Want From Single Men

Ladies, it is your turn.

A singles survey of almost 5500 unattached adults conducted by MarketTools.com for Match.com sheds light on what singles look for in potential relationships. And yes, physical attraction still makes the list. I already blogged on what men look for in women. Now, let’s take a look at what women judge men on when considering a potential date.

The number 1 physical characteristic was the same as men: TEETH. A whopping 71% listed teeth. Obviously, that smile makes a difference!

The rest of the characteristics ranked as follows:

#2 Grammar (61%)

#3 Clothes (58%)

#4 Hair (53%)

#5 Nails/hands (52%)

#6 Have/Not having tattoo (34%)

#7 Shoes (29%)

#8 The car he drives (24%)

#9 Accent (22%)

#10 Electronic devices carried (9%)

It is interesting how important grammar is to making a good impression. Also, self-care is an issue. Women are paying attention to grooming.

 

In terms of the relationship, the most important ranked as follows:

#1 Someone who treats me with respect (84%)

#2 Someone I can trust and confide in (77%)

#3Someone who has a sense of humor and can make me laugh (58%)

#4 Someone who shares the same values I do (47%)

#5 Someone who is comfortable sharing his wants, needs and desires (46%)

Hmmm…only the women weighed in on values.

And what women voted as least important:

Someone who is eager to marry (6%)

Someone who eats similar foods (9%)

Someone who wants to have children and shares my political beliefs. (tied at 11%)

Someone who has a similar education level (12%)

Someone from the same ethnic background (14%)
