My Perfect Man: Four Qualities I Look For
How does someone catch your eye when you walk into a crowded room? For me, there are a lot of attributes that make someone intriguing, but below are some top characteristics that always spark my interest…
For years, I have loved George Clooney. Why? Because as a Tri-State native, he’s never forgotten his roots. He’s won an Oscar and still worked to bring films like Ides of March to Cincinnati to showcase his city. I also love that despite becoming a larger-than-life star, his parents have always remained important to him and he continues to come back and spend time with them to this day. Even now, he’s surprised us all by breaking his eternal bachelor reputation by popping the question to a woman who is a successful attorney, fluent in Arabic, French and English, and clearly has a mind of her own. He set a new bar with brains leading beauty in Hollywood.
YOU CAN TAKE HIM HOME TO MOM
There’s a reason Good Morning America is after Co-Host Michael Strahan of Live! With Kelly and Michael (with Kelly Ripa): not only is he an amazing athlete with a very high IQ, his lovable personality is highly contagious. It doesn’t matter if he’s talking sports or celebrity news – he knows how to adapt. This man is versatile – the kind of person you could throw into any social setting without a problem. And as crazy as my life can get, you know that’s a must!
A SENSE OF HUMOR
Someone wise once told me that your life partner should have a great sense of humor. There’s nothing more valuable than being able to laugh with one another, especially when times are difficult. Vince Vaughn is a good example of someone who can make me laugh – even during very tense scenes like those in the movie The Break-Up. While we’re on the subject of his role in that movie, he shows he can hold up his side of argument with no problem. I like a man who can keep me on my toes and go head to head with me on any issue.
It wouldn’t be fun if I didn’t mention a little “eye candy,” right? Actor Dermot Mulroney, is the epitome of charisma and sex appeal in The Wedding Date. When a man is easy on the eyes and also has the certain “something” simmering below the surface, that’s a recipe for the kind of seduction that can go a VERY long way.
