So, you have an idea of what your perfect boyfriend is supposed to be. If you’ve been in the dating circle for quite a while, you’ll realize you don’t really choose who you end up falling in love with. In fact, you may have fallen a few times for guys entirely the opposite of your idea of a perfect boyfriend.
But think about this: wouldn’t it be nice if you could choose your own version of a perfect boyfriend? What kind of guy is he going to be?
What if, instead of waiting for that cute guy at Whole Foods to notice you, you built your own perfect boyfriend, just like building your own pizza? What if that guy comes loaded with all the combination of features you’ve always wanted?
The perfect boyfriend
Well, too bad there’s no such thing, but it’s nice to imagine, right? Anyway, we’ve rounded up these following qualities to show you the anatomy of a perfect boyfriend. Read on to find out how your man stacks up.
#1 Head. The perfect boyfriend has a good head on his shoulders, which means he’s smart. It’s also a plus that he’s not a stuck-up smarty pants or a boring intellectual who’s all talk and no action.
Another thing to look for in a perfect boyfriend for you is how he handles stress and difficult situations. He should be level-headed instead of impulsive.
#2 Face. Of course, the perfect boyfriend must have the looks. Whether he’s supposed to look like Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, or even Robert Downey, Jr., his looks and his charms should be what set him apart from all other men out there.
#3 Ears. The perfect boyfriend is a good listener. Generally, men are callous, insensitive, and plain egocentric. But not your man. He’ll be all ears when you talk about how your day went, why your office mate Sue is so nosy, and why you can’t wait for the next line of Kylie’s Lipkit to arrive.
#4 Lips. Of course, the perfect boyfriend must be a good, if not awesome, kisser. You’ve been imagining having your customized Ken doll in front of you, pulling you into his arms as he leans in for a torrid kiss. And you will be mind-blown.
The most important part of this anatomy, though, is that he has good oral hygiene. No one wants to kiss their ideal man only to find out his saliva smells like rotting trash.
And since you’re building your personalized pizza… er, perfect boyfriend, he also needs nice teeth for that perfect smile.
#5 Shoulder. The problem with most guys is that they’re unreliable when it comes to “getting” you. They actually have no clue how to make you happy, much less comfort you. So, the perfect boyfriend has to have firm, muscled shoulders that you can cry on when you’re down.
#6 Arms. The perfect boyfriend should also be nice. He’s the type who extends his respect not just to you or the people close to you, but to everyone in general. He should respect your boundaries, allow you to be yourself and to grow, but still be all over you in bed.
#7 Hands. The perfect boyfriend shouldn’t be superficial—oh no. He should be a man of substance. He should also be hardworking and willing to get his hands dirty.
#8 Chest/heart. The perfect boyfriend must also have a heart of gold. He’s willing to put up with all the ups and downs of your relationship—most especially the downs. In fact, he’s so nice he may even push you to join your local soup kitchen and do volunteer work to help the disenfranchised and in need.
He should also be passionate about you and the things he likes. If there’s something that he likes, he puts his 100 percent into it. And when it comes to making you fall in love with him, he does his best to make sure you feel loved and appreciated every day.
#9 Body. While most men are satisfied with their dad bods or couch potato physiques, your perfect boyfriend works hard to keep himself fit and toned. He exercises regularly and encourages you to hit the gym or run around the park so both of you stay active.
#10 Tummy. Your perfect boyfriend has an appetite for life. He doesn’t mind it when things don’t exactly go as planned. He even likes spontaneity at times and loves to surprise you with romantic gestures every now and then.
He has a huge appetite for your cooking too. And if you can’t cook, no problem—he will pick up the slack and whip up a beef bourguignon any time of day.
