So what exactly makes a woman, perfect? This topic has been covered since the dawn of dating—but it has never been applied to our dating model.

Rather than release a subjective survey based entirely on opinion, we decided to tackle this question head-on using our “bid for first-dates” system. We were then able to objectively determine “The Perfect Woman” based solely on first-date offers.

In essence, men putting their money where their heart is.

We polled the dating history from major cities in order to determine their definitions of “The Perfect Woman” based on the following female qualities: Hair Color, Eye Color, Vice, and Education. Some of these results may surprise you:


  • Boston, MA – Red Hair, Green Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Master’s Degree
  • Chicago, IL – Blonde Hair, Green Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Bachelor’s Degree
  • Dallas, TX – Brunette Hair, Hazel Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Bachelor’s Degree
  • Indianapolis, IN – Brunette Hair, Hazel Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Master’s Degree
  • Las Vegas, NV – Brunette Hair, Green Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Bachelor’s Degree
  • Los Angeles, CA – Brunette Hair, Green Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Bachelor’s Degree
  • Miami, FL – Brunette Hair, Green Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Bachelor’s Degree
  • New York, NY – Brunette Hair, Brown Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Master’s Degree
  • San Francisco, CA – Brunette Hair, Blue Eyes, Social Drinker, Non-Smoker, Master’s Degree


For one, I assumed that Los Angeles loves the quintessential blonde hair/blue-eyed beauty. But according to first date offers, they love brunettes with green eyes the most.

Here are some other interesting takeaways  from these results:

  1. New Yorkers can agree with Van Morrison’s “Brown-Eyed Girl.” The “Big Apple” is the only city to value brown-eyed girls.
  2. Boston is the only location in the US to go fiery over red-heads.
  3. Every single city views a “Perfect Woman” as an outgoing (social drinker), non-smoker.
  4. Gone are the stay-at-home moms and housewives: all men want their women educated.
  5. The US consensus of “The Perfect Woman” is a brunette with green eyes.


What can you interpret from these findings?

What is your definition of “The Perfect Woman?”

  2. Perfect woman are not define by just the hair colors, eyes color or degree holders.
    Perfect woman are define by beauty, personality, characteristic , education, and way she carry herself with pride and dignity.

    Confidence is sexy
    If you feel Sexy you are confident in every aspect of yourself.

    Beauty and brain are great combination but that doesn’t makes a woman

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and so what’s in her heart are essential
    of what makes her a perfect woman .

    I prefer an educated girl, 24-32, brunette or a redhead that is soft spoken, athletic, nice curvy body and actually has similar interests that you have. Thats pretty much the basics for me as far as a committed relationships go. There is one type of girl that I cannot turn down though and that is a 1980;s bleach blonde, 36-50 with a hot body. Yes, I said 50. Those bleach blonde older women are wild and hard to turn down. They are not good for committed relationships, in my experience. They are selfish, self centered, judgemental but at the same time, they are just too hot to turn down! I love my an 80’s blonde stripper type haha.

    For me it’s all about the personality, more to the point, the confidence. A woman who exudes confidence is just plain sexy. I’ve always thought if you carry yourself as a sexy person you will be perceived as a sexy person.

    Now, that said, I am a sucker for bedroom eyes. I can get lost in a pair of bedroom eyes for hours……simply beautiful.

    So, let’s sum up: personality that exudes confidence and believing you are sexy makes you sexy…..and bedroom eyes don’t hurt!

  5. Mmm bedroom eyes, bedroom voice, bedroom body and bedroom mind are sexy , lol
    But personality really important sometimes than just the physical surface.

    own hair and teeth indiscriminate of color, no lazy eyes, binge drinker, hard core smoker and 8th grade education.

    this is all a load of crap. im a blonde and i can and do have any man i want regardless of my hair color and masters degree.

    According to the picture for this article, the perfect women is dressed wildly inappropriate for being out in the woods. 😛

    There seems to be no love for Blonde Hair + Blue Eyes and Non-drinkers. Just kidding- I know that there is love for the first.

    The second is not necessarily true either, as this is a poor study. The study attempts to determine what men like in women on this site by using data of those who have gone on dates. However, this contains an inherent flaw. The flaw being one arriving from the simple notion of supply and demand. Let us assume that there is a demand on this website for say, giraffe women (just for giggles, no offense to tall women as I literally mean a woman who is part giraffe. Strut your stuff, tall women). While there or may or may not exist a demand for giraffe women, the supply of giraffe women is evidently nonexistent. Therefore, it follows that this study would not detect such a shortage and would not be able to report that men are actually seeking their perfect giraffe counterpart if such were the case.

    Referring to my previous example regarding Non-drinkers (tying us back into reality), there may very well be a demand for non-drinkers, however one could not determine this based on such a study owing to the fact that the majority of the adult population are at least social drinkers on some level. Therefore, it cannot be the case that men are typically going out on dates with non-drinkers.

    As a statistician, it pains me to see any article including any such illegitimate study. There is nothing wrong with this article, as of course it served its purpose- caught my attention, was interesting to read, and sparked conversation. Now, if you will excuse me, I have some leaves to eat…
