The "Perfect Man" According to San Francisco Women

Posted By on Thu, Jan 10, 2013 at 11:42 AM


A little while ago, we told you what San Francisco's version of the "perfect woman" was (brown hair, blue eyes, with a master's degree, non-smoker, and has casual drinking habits). The website that conducted that study, dating-auction site, has done a similar survey with 3,352 of its female members, to determine what women are looking for in a sugar daddy mate, based on education, hair and eye color, build, and vices.

Is It Weird To Google Your Dates?

"The perfect man" earns $200,000 to $300,000 a year, has a Graduate degree, has brown hair with green eyes, an athletic build, and is a casual drinker who doesn't smoke.

The most important quality in a man, according to the press release, is education, followed by being a non-smoker, income level, and then appearance. Percentages are based on the likelihood of a first date with each ideal attribute, and the breakdown is as follows:

The Perfect Man (percent chance for first date)

1.) Education (35 percent): Graduate Degree

2.) Smoking (28 percent): Non-Smoker

3.) Income (18 percent): $200,000 to $300,000

4.) Eye Color (10 percent): Green Eyes

5.) Body Type (5 percent): Athletic

6.) Hair Color (3 percent): Brown Hair

7.) Drinking (1 percent): Casual Drinker

Also of note is the fact that, in over 30 cities polled, San Francisco had the highest non-smoking priority of any city.

"In the online dating world, 'The Perfect Man' transcends superficial qualities such as looks and body type," says Brandon Wade, the CEO and Founder, in a press release. "Our study indicates that women look past profile pictures and also value certain intangibles when choosing a first date -- success, intelligence, and social habits."

There you have it. The next time someone tells you San Francisco's gold diggers are shallow, you can just point them to this study.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
