Survey finds what Indianapolis women consider the ‘perfect man’

Ladies, what is your idea of the perfect man?

According to a survey conducted by, a dating-auction website, Indianapolis woman value body type the most in their perception of the ‘perfect man.’

Approximately 1,200 Indianapolis women were surveyed and asked to determine the definition of the perfect man by the following qualities: income, education, hair color, eye color, body type and vice. The women were asked to rank the most important qualities in a man.

“In the online dating world, ‘the perfect man’ transcends superficial qualities such as looks and body type,” said Brandon Wade, CEO and founder of “Our study indicates that women look past profile pictures and also value certain intangibles when choosing a first date—success, intelligence and social habits.”

Results indicated women in the Circle City believed body type was the most important quality, followed by education, hair color, eye color, drinking, income and smoking.

Based on the results, local women viewed the perfect man as someone who earns $75,000 to $100,000 a year, obtained a Bachelor’s Degree, has blonde hair with blue eyes, an athletic build and is a social drinker who doesn’t smoke.

Surveys were conducted across the U.S. in 30 different cities.  Indianapolis was the only location to value body type, education and hair color in that order.
