    What would that be?
    I'm quite broad minded when it comes to music- I like most things and can usually find something I like in most music. However I couldn't tolerate something like country and western or death metal.

    Music is always down to personal taste, as are many other things

    That's why I said "perfect in that respect" just after talking about his looks and personality

    Well, saying "no degree" sounds like the epitome of a hard and fast rule to me. Either way, my curiosity has been satisfied
    We don't see it often Woody, but today yeh got owned. Her points were valid.

    How is he the perfect guy for me if he doesn't have the one thing I specified as an essential requirement :holmes:
    Good logic!

    Don't think I'd have much in common at all with the whole self-starting business type tbh. So yeah, definitely no.

    It's not about earning potential, and obviously not a hard and fast rule. I come from a working class background and it's a quick and easy way to avoid the sort of guys who I grew up around.

    Also if the guy is from a university like Swansea Met then I'm also a bit deterred.

    Edit: You do realise you can apply your reasoning to every post on this thread? Perfect guy but without a beard, perfect guy but a couple of inches shorter,
    perfect guy but wrong hair colour etc.

    -If they're a Sunderland FC fan (born and bred Geordie here)
    - If they're a mummy's boy
    -if they have cats. I cannot be doing with cats!
    -any sort of dodgy taste in music
    - if they're Tory supporters (my other half is a Tory and he knows it makes me really cross)
    - Anyone who has a problem with my disabilities (it has been known)
    -Sexist or homophobic
    - Alcoholic (I'm not talking enjoys a few pints at the weekend I'm talking full blown alcoholic. Been there, done that and not going back)
    - Has to get the approval of his mates before he does anything...
    What do you mean by 'dodgy taste'?

    That doesn't make sense.

    Also, cats are incredible :mad:.

    How did I get "owned" when I merely asked her a question by way of a hypothetical scenario, as I was genuinely intrigued by her reasoning where she gave no explanation in her first post?

    5'3", you?

    Yeah it's not great, height does seem to be quite an important factor for many people it seems. Guess I just have to get lucky or something :moon:

    5ft. Someone who is 5'3 is perfect height for me. I find most men are too tall and looking up just hurts my neck.

    I had this impression you were quite tall for some reason :lol:
