80 per cent men prefer women with flaws

London, Nov 23, 2012, PTI: 2:09 IST
Eighty per cent of men are convinced the perfect woman doesn’t exist, but the good news for ladies is that four out of five actually prefer them with flaws, according to a new UK survey.

In a survey of 2,000 men, researchers found there wasn’t a single man who rated his partner as perfect listing bad temper, disliking sport and being obsessed with cleanliness as their most common shortcomings.

However, four out of five men said they liked it that way while half of them said their current partner is ‘the one’ for them, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported.

Just a fifth of men surveyed would actually want their partner to be 100 per cent perfect.
The research, for the Remington electrical firm, found that most men rate their other half as just 67 per cent perfect.

Other grumbles which stopped men from seeing their partner as perfect were a tendency to make a big deal of things, criticising their driving and an insistence on watching soap operas. Taking too long to get ready was also a big feature on men’s list of imperfections as well as women’s need to always have the last word.

Some men even complained that their partners needed to shave their armpits more.
Six in ten men complained that their lover deliberately tries to change their dress sense and diet. A quarter of men also grumbled that their wives or girlfriends attempt to influence who they choose to socialise with.

However, more than a third thought that, when their partner does try to alter things, it’s usually for the better.

If men were to change their partner, the first thing they would do is to try to make them more relaxed, while getting them to enjoy football and be more adventurous featured highly on their wish lists.

One man in four also secretly thinks their partner has let themselves go a bit after they settled down into their relationship.

Just four in ten men were confidently able to say that they fully understand their partner.
A puzzled seven in ten said their partner often confuses them with mood swings that they didn’t see coming.
