Money makes the world go ‘round, but does it make the man? A new dating study from WhatsYourPrice reveals that women in the U.S. prefer a man who has a big paycheck over one who has big biceps.
WhatsYourPrice gathered user data from its most successful male members to determine America’s definition of the “Perfect Man.” Results show, women in the United States prefer men who earn $200,000 to $300,000 annually. According to recent research, this salary bracket puts the perfect man in the top 1 percent of earners in states, such as Arizona, New Mexico, Vermont, Idaho, Hawaii and Kansas.
Notably, American women do not seem to show preference towards athletic body types. In addition to a high salary, American women prefer someone who has an average body type – dad bod, much? Perhaps the 2015 gentleman should spend more time in the office and less time in the gym.
The “Perfect Man” has dark brown hair, brown eyes, is 6 feet tall, who has no children, does not smoke and enjoys a casual drink.
Although Jon Hamm’s “Mad Men” character Don Draper, could be considered a woman’s worst nightmare with his Playboy antics – Mr. Hamm embodies many of the “Perfect Man” attributes in real life. Other celebrities who meet the “Perfect Man” criteria include Mark Ruffalo, Patrick Dempsey, Gerard Butler and Russell Crowe.
