Every woman’s perfect man eats meat, drives an Audi and phones his mother twice a week, a new poll has revealed. According to the list, the man must also drink lager or beer, not wine or spirits, and earns a comfortable £48,000 a year.
The ideal male will also be 6ft tall, have short dark hair and smart dress sense - similar to that of U.S. X Factor host Steve Jones.
Vegetarians were revealed to be a turn off, while being clean shaven and in possession of a smooth, hair-free chest were said to be a bonus.
The findings surfaced in a poll of 2,000 women carried out by clothing brand Austin Reed.
"It would seem that women have high expectations when it comes to the perfect man," the Daily Mail quoted spokesman as saying.
"How a man is presented is obviously going to be a huge part of that.
"Whilst women don’t want a man to be too preened, they would like him to be stylish and up to date with current trends.
"It also nice to see that women favour a smart appearance, as opposed to sportswear," the spokesman said.
The study also found the ideal man should also have a degree and hold down a decent job.
A demanding 15 percent said they would insist on a suitor having at least a master’s degree or a PHD.
But 70 percent of girls said they would prefer to date a man who earned more than them.
