    good hair. nice eyes.

    as for personality, considerate (im yet to find one with this attribute), funny, outgoing, and i guess the most important thing is for them to like me for who i am and not try and change me. which is what the last boyfriend did. grrrr

    I found MY perfect guy :D

    He's kind, caring, considerate, extremely loving, protective, supportive & encouraging all the time, helpful and he loves and adores me to bits...he'd give me the world if it's within his capabilities

    I love him to bits :001_wub:

    Well for starters they must like animals - dogs in general.

    I had planned on dating a guy and before it he told me he hated dogs - so as a result, I didn't even bother going on a date with him.

    Be kind and caring.

    Be a handy man - in so many way :devil: ;)

    Be tall - I’m 5'8 so they have to be taller than me :)

    Manly but sensitive as well.

    I like when they share a lot of affection and make me laugh :)

    I like them toned and muscly - but not OTT.

    I like them older than me too and with short spikey hair:)

    oh and to have similar interests as me - going on holiday, going snowboarding, cycling, paintballing, walks, hiking, animals, photography and animal welfare.


    Well so far my current bf of 3 years is basically all of the above criteria!
    He is loving, caring, kind, gentle, manly, handy about the house, tall, adores Zara - he is trying to talk me into having another dog!
    He also has a lovely tones tush and thighs and he spikes his hair up too :)
    Who and he always makes me laugh is protective!
    he would do anything to make me happy :)
    The only drawback is that he isn't as mad about animals as me -but then I don’t know much people who are :)

    Overall i know he adores me the way i adore him :)
    How mushy is that :)

    good sense of humour is essential ... so why im with my OH I dont know , my nickname for him is Victor ( as in Meldrew :smilewinkgrin: )


    actually he adores animals, is hard working and looks out for us as a family , who could ask for more ... besides, he puts up with me , the guy deserves a medal lol

    Well..Where to start?

    I've never had a set list in my mind.

    I suppose loyalty, humour, looks obviously though personality always clinches it for me...

    Lots of things!!

    I love my OH but OMG he drives me nuts :D We used to work together and he has his 'work face' and his 'home face'. It was hard dealing with him in work. I wasn't clingy but I couldn't even have a chat with him when I was passing or have my dinner with him.

    I soon got over it though :)

    Basically I have to fancy them first and foremost - shallow I know, but hey, at least I'm honest :)

    Then I want someone I can actually really talk too, makes me laugh, cares for me and is always there when I need him, yet knows when I need my own space.

    I hate jealousy and possesiveness, and will not tolerate being told what to do and who I can and can't talk too :cursing:

    But then again I met my soul mate when I was 16 years old. A thunder bolt hit me the second I saw him and 14 years down the line he still gives me butterflys when he kisses me.

    Yes we have had some bloody hard times along the way, but I couldn't imagine my life without him.
