Girls like the guy with big­gest laugh

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

If it’s a hard road find­ing the per­fect woman then it could be a rugged road find­ing the per­fect man, but chances are ‘‘rugged’’ is just the way she likes it. A quick sur­vey among the girls on the streets of Queen­stown found that most women like their man a lit­tle bit rough around the edges, but most im­por­tantly he must be ‘‘funny’’ and able to laugh at him­self. The girls agree – ‘‘there’s noth­ing worse than a grumpy man’’. They pre­fer their men taller and stub­ble is good, but phys­i­cal ap­pear­ance was far less im­por­tant to women than per­son­al­ity and ‘‘emo­tional in­tel­li­gence’’. A kind car­ing na­ture, charm and some good ba­sic DIY skills ranked highly, but he’s best not to work up too much of a sweat or dam­age his hands. His smell was im­per­a­tive for some while oth­ers pre­ferred ‘‘smooth hands’’. In­tel­li­gence and charm im­por­tant if you’re Dan­ish. ‘‘Aus­tralian and Kiwi guys are very ag­gres­sive when they hit on us. We like a bit of a softer ap­proach. We like them harder to get like Dan­ish guys,’’ Na­dia Aa­gaard said. ‘‘I find it very sexy when a guy can cook and it’s so sexy to see a guy who’s good with kids.’’ Queen­stown’s own Miss Otago, Monique Coo­ley, likes a gen­tle­man: ‘‘All that chivalry stuff, open­ing doors for me. I like a man’s man, who can look af­ter their woman.’’ He must be a great com­mu­ni­ca­tor and she prefers ‘‘tall, dark and hand­some’’. Wanaka coun­try and west­ern singer Jody Direen likes her men ‘‘a lit­tle rough around the edges.’’ ‘’I like coun­try boys, a bit of a south­ern man, hard work­ing, a lit­tle bit tough, a good talker, car­ing, loyal, a lit­tle bit sen­si­tive, but still tough . . . some­one who’s passionate about life and love. You can’t go past a pair of cow­boy boots and jeans: ‘‘I can’t stand those lit­tle townie shoes like chucks and stuff, and tight jeans, on men.’’ South­land coun­try singing star Suzanne Pren­tice says good hu­mour is para­mount: ‘‘He’s got to be able to make me laugh and laugh at him­self or he’s nei­ther use nor or­na­ment to me.’’ Af­ter 35 years of mar­riage to her per­fect man, laugh­ter is the key. At 17, Christchurch teenager So­phie Bar­nett al­ready has her per­fect man all mapped out. ‘‘Looks at­tract you but it’s the qual­i­ties that make you stay with him.’’ So­phie’s man must be very hon­est and trust­wor­thy, hard work­ing

are with a love of food. ‘‘He has emo­tional in­tel­li­gence, he’s tact­ful and doesn’t say the wrong things. Self­less, car­ing and con­sid­er­ate. Some­one who knows the lan­guages of love, is per­cep­tive and knows how to treat a girl right. He’s ro­man­tic, does lit­tle cute things and has a faith in God – a Chris­tian guy would be per­fect.’’

Coun­try boys: for Jody Direen. My hus­band is the per­fect man. He’s ex­tremely funny, about the best dad in the world and af­ter 30 years we still man­age to en­joy each other’s com­pany. Oh, and he taught­mehow to ride amo­tor­bike.

Af­ter you: Monique Coo­ley likes a gen­tle­man.

Fun lov­ing: Suzanne Pren­tice says laugh­ter is the key.
