Perfect Girlfriend: Every Guy’s Checklist

perfect girlfriend

While you’re out there dating, there are certain qualities and situations that you should watch out for and be aware of with women. Even though we all dream of a perfect girlfriend, we all have those horrific or unflattering dates that we can remember. Think to yourself, what turned you off? Was it her not showing up for the date and standing you up? Was it the fact that she didn’t post a recent photo of herself before you decided to take her out, only to realize that she doesn’t look the same anymore? Or was it her talking about herself on the date, and not really getting to know you or listening? Were her eyes wandering around? Was she bored? Or even worse… was she rolling her eyes at you?

Now, think about the woman that you last fell in love with. What qualities did she have that stands out from your bad dates? Did she flip her hair that certain way to make her irresistible? Was it her alluring gaze or pretty smile? Was it her round booty that mesmerized you? Maybe it’s time for you to formulate a strategy going into your next ‘right swipes’, and those dates that you decide to actually schedule.

What would be your perfect girlfriend? What qualities would she possess to keep you coming back for more? How would she capture your heart, and make you want to keep her? Better yet, what does she do to make you infatuated with her, or obsessed with her? Let’s go over the qualities that should be on every guy’s checklist.

She’s exquisite in appearance

Most straight guys want the hottest woman that will have them. Are you attracted to blondes, brunettes, or red haired women? Do you like curvy or skinny types? Are you more attracted to breasts than booty, or do you prefer both? What kind of style are you after? Do you like her fashion or style? Do you usually date women with blue eyes? Hazel? Green? Brown? Pink? (I hope not pink eyes). These are all questions that you must ask yourself before jumping into that dating pool. Narrow down your matches, so that you will inevitably feel more satisfied, and not disappointed.

Your perfect girlfriend should be your trophy girlfriend. You should want to be seen with her, and she should match your appearance, or look much better than you. In other words, if you can’t usually get the type of women that you’re attracted to, try putting less emphasis on her outward appearance (the superficial stuff), and get to know her inside. Perhaps she will grow on you with some time. Ideally, you will want to have a girlfriend who you are really attracted to, and get along with. It should be a win-win.

She allows you to ‘be yourself’

There are plenty of ‘love experts’ to go around that will give you advice about being a challenge with women, playing games with women, and not really being your genuine self, or revealing your real personality. That’s fine and dandy if you’re just looking for a sex buddy, however you will end up alone if you can’t be yourself around her. It’s fine to use some useful tips and advice starting off dating from love experts, but eventually your ‘real self’ will come out while getting to know her better. It’s just inevitable, unless you’re a superb actor or con man. So, you need to make sure that you’re not acting like someone that you’re not, if you want her to stay. Women like genuine guys who don’t want to merely have sex with them, and treat them like sex objects (most women do, that is). Also, don’t be too thirsty while you communicate with them, or during your dates with them.

If you feel comfortable around her, and she ‘lets you be yourself’, more power to you! You found yourself a keeper, because you can be your genuine self around her, and she happens to love you just the way that you are, flaws and all. It’s best to look for a woman who lets you just be you, and loves you for it.

She respects and honours you

You want to be with a woman who doesn’t put you down all of the time, or insults you. Your perfect girlfriend should compliment you, lift you up while you’re down, and show you empathy. She should show you that she cares about you, and respects you. She will do this with her actions by being loyal with her behavior, and you will feel like number one to her. If you already have this in your relationship, thank your lucky stars, because a lot of guys don’t, and they suffer in silence.

She will also do nice things for you, surprise you when you least expect it, and you will feel loved, because she’ll give you love, since she’s a flexible giver. If there’s a change of plans, it’s no big deal. If you can’t go out on the date for some reason, she’ll allow you to reschedule or she’ll counteroffer. If you have a woman like this, make sure that you return the favor as well, and don’t take her for granted. Show her that you appreciate her flexibility with you.

She hates drama and arguing

Your perfect girlfriend will hate drama and arguing with you. A relationship is no fun if you are always going back and forth with arguing and trying to ‘one-up’ each other. If she’s the kind of dramatic woman that needs drama in her life (some women are), you can try to talk with her first, but most likely she won’t change for you.

You need to be with someone that you can relax around and chill with, and someone who doesn’t have the tendency of making drama out of little situations. Save yourself the headache, heartache, and grief, and find someone who is caring, kind, and doesn’t like drama and arguing. Some women will say that they hate drama and arguing, but will behave oppositely, like they need the tumultuous drama in their life around you. Do yourself a favor, and save the drama for going out to the movies.

She’s fun and optimistic about life

Let’s face it… We all have our bad days. I’m not stating that she needs to be phony and smiling all of the time, but she should have a general optimistic view about life. If she cusses a lot, and you feel like she’s a negative ball of energy, she’s probably not the right fit for you. She should be fun, and you should be able to enjoy life with her, without negative vibes, and always having to feel like you need to cheer her up for her to get through the day.

Your perfect girlfriend should want to go to football games with you, bowling, go out to comedy clubs, romantic restaurants, creative events, and she should want to spend time with you without feeling bored. She should have high interest level in you. You will have the occasional situations when you won’t get along in the relationship, but for the most part, you are inseparable. She shows you that she loves you by spending time with you and enjoying it.

She’s loyal and has your back

Last but not least, she’s loyal and has your back. She talks you up in front of her friends, doesn’t put you down, insult you, or talk shit about you behind your back. She says good things about you, because she values you. A good woman will be loyal to you and she will defend you if someone says something negative about you.

She’ll also think about you first. She makes you the priority in her brain and heart, because she has high interest level in you, and she doesn’t want to jeopardize your relationship.

These are the main qualities to look out for when you are dating. Your perfect girlfriend will realise that you’re special to her, she will treat you right, and I have some friends personally that are lucky enough to have women with these qualities. I’ve also experienced the opposite, when guys struggle to keep their women interested in them, and their wives or girlfriends end up cheating or breaking their hearts. It’s unfortunate that this happens, but if you learn from your bad dating and relationship experiences, hopefully karma will reward you down the road with someone special that you can call your perfect girlfriend.
