What I'm looking for in a man, according to

You don't need a doting guy in order to feel satisfied. In fact, although you might prefer a guy who'll occasionally pamper you with gifts or affection, you don't need your ideal man to be a true romantic. (Two famous men who might fit your romance profile are Mark Wahlberg and Jack Nicholson.) Heck, you might even find sappy or romantic acts cheesy rather than desirable. Or perhaps you look at men with a realistic eye and recognize that the passionate, expressive qualities many women crave are rarely found outside the movies. Whether you're romantic or not, your open-minded, practical outlook will significantly increase your chances of meeting Mr. Right!
Love might be a serious game, but it should still be fun. Too much sophistication can kill the romance. But we didn't have to tell you that. It sounds like you always go for the kind of guy who knows how to cut loose and just be himself. Practicality and maturity are respectable qualities, sure, and no man should be completely without them, but they've never been high on your list of important ingredients for an exciting night out. Based on your answers, we think your perfect guy - someone like Jerry Seinfeld or Cuba Gooding Jr., perhaps? - should know how to have a great time without acting too childish or outrageous. Whether he adds a little bit of danger to your life or just has a great sense of humor, your ideal man would still be young enough at heart to let the kid in him emerge.
Love doesn't come cheap, but it doesn't have to be all that expensive, either. It sounds like you're not very concerned about your ideal man's financial situation. Of course, we all dream of living well, but it's a mistake to mix your expectations of love with your hopes for a first-class lifestyle. Based on your answers, it seems like money isn't a real romantic concern for you. On the airplane of love, you're just as happy traveling coach as first class. (Two TV guys who live up to your financial expectations - or lack thereof - are Chandler and Ross from "Friends.") Being detached from materialist concerns is a healthy, realistic attitude and should help make you happy. It means that when Mr. Right crosses your path, you'll be sure to recognize him and not worry about the size of his wallet.
No doubt about it - love is blind. You seem to realize that ruling out potential suitors because they're not drop-dead gorgeous could jeopardize a perfect love match. Good for you! Your good nature and open mind let you look past the surface and see the true person inside before you judge the chemistry between the two of you. Sure, you notice a good-looking guy when you see one (who doesn't?!), and you probably think good looks are a nice bonus. But physical appearance isn't the number one item on your list of important things to look for in a man. Jay Leno? Kramer from "Seinfeld"? You'd date 'em in a second. Not only does this characteristic reflect your sweet nature and genuine desire to find true love, it also means that you'll be more apt to find your ideal guy than someone who shuts the door on every guy who doesn't look like he stepped off a magazine cover.
