The perfect boyfriend is, of course, different for each woman. One woman's preferences can be another woman's nightmare. And almost every woman has the desire for such a companion. You are the one who knows the qualities of a sweetheart that are ideal for you.
Some people consider it a waste of ...
... time to be looking for such a boyfriend. The perfect boyfriend is there for you but he is searching for his perfect mate. So the search for a perfect mate redirects your attention back to yourself.
After you have done a lot to improve yourself, it is not a waste of time because looking for the perfect boyfriend could cause you to find a great boyfriend.
If you do not have a mental image of the perfect boyfriend, ...
... the chances of having such a boyfriend are reduced.
Without the profile of the perfect boyfriend in your mind, you may end up with the wrong boyfriend and eventually leave that relationship and be bitter and lonely. A few such wrong relationships leave many women disillusioned. They become
unwilling to enter another relationship and and willing to put up with the loneliness.
So, looking for the perfect boyfriend is a very worthwhile activity even if you end up having a boyfriend who is not perfect but has most of the qualities you are looking for.
Since women express many qualities that should ...
... exist in the perfect boyfriend and the preferences are so individual, I have listed fifty good qualities and fifty bad qualities. It would be up to you to form the perfect boyfriend profile by doing the following:
a. Select 10 qualities that must be present
b. Select 10 qualities that must be absent
c. Select 5 qualities that can be present
If a potential boyfriend has eight of those ...
... qualities that must be present, does not have eight qualities that must be absent and has four qualities that can be present, that would be a real life scenario.
