    I think you can just see it from your point of view.
    Is it a deal-breaker for you if the girl isn't funny every single second of your date? Would you feel comfortable if she would crack one joke after the other or would you maybe get the feeling that she's making fun of you i.e. isn't taking you or the date seriously?
    Regarding the money question: Do you decide if you like a girl based on how much money she makes? I mean, obviously there are girls and boys to whom that is imporant, but if I have a guy who doesn't earn a lot of money but I like him as a person, I would prefer him over the rich guy who is a d**k in everyday life. I think, the only thing that puts girls off is a guy who is unemployed and just too lazy to get a new job. And regarding ambition: Would you like a girl who doesn't have any goals in her life?

    The time frame is probably a very individual thing. Basically, I think the first date is the most important one. Either you click or you don't but that doesn't has to mean, that the guy has to demonstrate all the qualities the girls put on their lists here. In the end, it is about the person and his personality, not about his hair.

    I hope that answered your questions somehow
    I totally agree with that. The "humour" and "career/money" were just examples I was using. But you're right - I don't judge any girl too quickly and try to get to know them a fair bit before coming to some sort of a conclusion.

    The reason I asked that question is because with the last 2 girls, I felt as though they decided that its not going to work sort of too soon (2 dates), without really giving it much of a chance. It's not like the dates went bad or anything either lol Again though, you're correct, the time frame for each person is different.

    Same Intelligence as me- So have a degree
    Someone who doesn't have a degree isn't necessarily less intelligent than you.... If you mean same level of education fair enough, but that's definitely different.

    If they're human you'll date them, failing that you'll give it a thought.
    Because only homo sapiens have eyes, ears, nose, hair and a body...

    What we can conclude from this thread is that girls like tall, confident guys with a sense of humour.

    - Intelligence - (not necessarily academic; can be street-smart) and can hold an intellectual conversation of a similar level as me
    - Sense of humour - if you made girl laugh, you've won some points
    - Physical Attractiveness - tall, good features and skin, fit/healthy body
    - Genuine love/care - for me, for his family, his friends.
    - Compatibility - whether our personalities and interests work well together. This encompasses different things for different women - for me, personally, he needs to have confidence and a strong sense of ambition/individuality for us to be able to work.

    I have been told i am funny so i hope that's one of the main things girls look for . I am also quite tall (6ft) I have a feminine hair and eye colour combination though, with blonde hair and blue eyes. I notice girls tend to like guys who are tall, dark and handsome. i fit the tall bill at least. Just wanted to get an idea as to what a girl looks for in a guy for future reference, i suppose it's all down to preference. I have had 2 girlfriends and i am 18 but i notice i am not the common girls 'type' being blonde. I think most girls like brown haired guys from my experience
    I would look for and I feel these work both ways

    *Caring but not clingy, take an interest in things I'm passionate about

    *Honest, someone who lays everything out infront of you

    *Fun, they can have a laugh with you and specially getting to your friends I think a guy who can make your friends his is amazing.

    *Look wise dress sense does slightly matter, baggy clothing is a put off.

    *A friend before I got with my Boyfriend we were friends, good friends and I still see him as friend and boyfriend...if that makes sense, he has all the qualities of a good friend as well as a good boyfriend at that is priceless.

    Yes. I've had this list for about three years actually, since I was mistreated by my boyfriend at the time. I wrote up things that I 100% needed to have in a relationship in order for me to justify being with the guy (not including basic things like kindness and no abuse; I'd expect that from any decent human being).

    My current boyfriend ticks every box, and I didn't meet him by looking for a boyfriend. He sort of just fell into my life, and I honestly can't say how grateful I am to have met him, let alone have fallen in love with him. These guys do exist, and they are phenomenal.
    Indeed we are. :smug:

    Then again you do live in Toronto - you have more access to 'quality'

    Hah, Toronto's gone down the ****ter. Don't find much 'quality' around those parts,... it's not impossible though, I know plenty of really great guys, just not for me. My boyfriend is from the UK though.

    1) Looks - I know thats kind of superficial but you've got to be attracted to them in one way or another.

    But, Tall - Above 6ft. Brown eyes, Dark brown hair. Really nice smile.
    Very slim. I like guys who arnt ripped but around a 26 - 30" waist.

    2) Intelligence. Ive dated some less intelligent guys and Ive found that its hard to have a stimulating conversation. I remember one guy who used to say 'you know what I mean' after every sentence.

    3) Ambition. I love travelling. I want to start my own business. I need someone who can do that themselves and have the drive to do so.

    4) An interesting hobby. I like rock climbing and kayaking. Im not saying that they should but they should have something that makes them stand out for me. An ex of mine was a really good DJ and I admired him so much. He was also an excellent photographer and loved all the work that he did.

    5) Generic, accepts who I am and my humor, sarcasm and personality. Kind, caring and when im older a good fatherly figure for our children.

    For now living the life of a singleton.
