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.

No, it doesn't... some people have such ridiculous standards. That's why they're on dating websites and not in a relationship.

Lisa, you are right. This sounds like stereotyping people and things like personality, character, value are not important anymore

Well I can make my hair red, my eyes are almost green, I don't smoke, I'm a social drinker and I have both my BA and MA. But - I don't think that is the whole story - what about our wit, compassion, strength, loyalty, etc. I think that is more important.
