125 comments

  1. I'm attracted to men with 'alpha' type personalities. that is to say, confident, with strong social skills. unfortunately, that doesn't seem to really exist here at waterloo.
    i also prefer guys who are physically taller and bigger than me, (i'm 5'8) and even that is hard to find lol.

    1. +1 on the "physically taller an bigger than me".
      i'm only 5'5, but i absolutely love a large man. i don't mean obese or muscley (i find both to be turn offs), but tall and wide. someone who can pick me up and toss me if they wanted to haha

    2. @1: Have you not been to the Fox? I've been like 3 times and you'll find a whole ton of guy like you describe (also with all the wonderful alpha traits you didn't mention). Probably why I don't go there...

    3. "confident, with strong social skills." That isn't hard to find at all, but it's not natural for anyone to command the room like George Clooney 24/7. Perhaps your standards are too high.

    4. What can a guy with alpha qualities do if he is 5'7?

    6. Didn't know women were actively looking for this. I have found my Alpha personality has ran me into trouble at times.

  6. nope. i meet people who are my type all the time. my type is smart, able to speak to me without patronizing me, takes care of themselves decently (shower at least every other day, washed clothing, clean shoes, groomed alright), has interests outside of me. if a person matches these four criteria, there is a high probability that i'll develop an interest in them.

  13. Another Asian girl who likes girls...

    Not a joke, lol. I regret not going to UofT. My program is great, career-wise, but I feel like I will never meet someone. Everyone here seems very conservative (i.e., from Markham/Richmond Hill and still use gay as slang...)

    3. White girl here, I agree that everyone here seems suuuper conservative. I've pretty much given up on that front at UW because I never seem to meet any other girls who dig girls anyway!

    2. well, what race are you? and what race are most of these guys that you are into?

      Delete
    3. 22, with that kind of attitude you will never be in a relationship. The kids here at Loo may be racist & immature, but there is a whole world out there full of intelligent, educated guys who don't think race is an issue.

      Hell, you'd be surprised how many times I've been hit on by college kids & more mature guys while on co-ops in Toronto & Montreal. Also nothing wrong with a hot brown guy!

      Delete
    4. 22 here, I'm not really attracted to a certain race. I've been attracted to people of all races before. I myself am brown, heh. The last guy I dated was East-Asian, but his parents were disappointed when he told them I was brown, so he ended up breaking up with me.

      Delete
    5. Well that sucks, but don't worry, I am sure you have just ran into a few select guys who weren't that into brown girls. I have a bunch of friends on campus, from different races, who are into brown girls. So there are lots out there.

      Minus east Asian actually. Come to think of it, I don't really know any East Asian guys into brown girls.

    6. Insecurity has nothing to do with it? Oh really... "it looks stupid" sounds like a concern about others' perceptions. If you're into the person otherwise, the occasions when you'd have to wear heels shouldn't outweigh the benefits of being with them, unless you're insecure about how you'll appear to others. And before you say, "oh it's a short guy who's just bitter," I'm actually 6'.

    1. well i'm brown, physically active, and belong to a socioeconomic class. I think i fulfil 3/5 of these categories then?

  16. The ONLY type of guy I would go for is: educated, hardworking, 6" and taller, from the same ethnic background as me, listens to the same music as me, 3-6 years older, values family and friends, doesn't drink excessively, doesn't do drugs, physically fit etc. Thank God my boyfriend fits these qualities but if we were to break up I would only go for someone that fits this criteria.

    2. 24 here. No I'm dead serious. I don't have high standards, I just need to be able to get along with someone and have the same values as them. I wouldn't be able to marry someone outside of mt ethnicity so why would I waste my time dating them? I'm not too strict about looks, besides height. I meant 6' not 6" lol

      Delete
    3. Apart from music I don't see anything really unreasonable with the list. Fit doesn't have to mean muscular, and I'm sure no one's intentionally looking for an alcoholic or druggie.

    4. 24 here. I forgot to add, if I'm going to be sleeping with him, he has to be circumcised.

    6. 24 here. 24c, I didn't mean muscular, I just meant healthy and that he takes care of himself. I'm glad that someone understands what I mean! 24e, no I'm not Jewish, I am of Christian eastern European background.

    12. Obvious troll, in Eastern Europe white Christian men don't get circumcized, everybody knows only the muslim men get circumsized. Unless OP are you bosnian muslim or something?

    13. Yay to arbitrary height cutoffs. "Oh, he's perfect but he's 5'11" so I can't..." You're shallow.

      Delete
    14. Firstly, I don't understand when it became a bad thing to have high standards. We live in a dog eat dog world, we should all strive for the best. I am a guy and I am not ashamed to say that I have very high standards, probably higher than hers.

      But what's funny is: " I'm not too strict about looks, besides height.it has to be 6" So you would date an ugly 6 footer over 5-11 Brad Pitt or GSP? ... Dumbass lol

      Delete
    15. 24 here. I meant height is more important than looks because everyone gets old and ugly anyway. Nobody's going to get taller. Plus I'm fairly tall for a woman and I wouldn't want to be taller than him in heels.

      Delete
    16. I didn't know having high standards means you're shallow.
      Butthurt ugly people..

      Delete
    17. @24.o: Why are you so insecure? Who cares if you're a little taller than him in heels if he's a great guy? I can see if he's like 5'3" or something, but woman, get some guts!

      Delete
    18. 24o here. Because it looks stupid when a woman is taller than her SO.

      Delete
    19. I will probably have to agree with 24/24o. I have had to stop dating girls just because they were taller than me in heels. But if the girl is like 2 inches shorter, i think its ok, and you can just make heels a rare thing. I don't think insecurity has anything to do with it.

  23. Girl here.

    He needs to have a good head on his shoulders and be able to make well-reasoned opinions, and not be afraid to change his mind about things (I say this because I LOVE to argue and talk politics and about controversial topics, I need someone who understands that and can talk objectively about things with me). Musically-inclined and lover of animals is highly desirable. Has ambition. Knows how to set a goal and accomplish it. Also must be an alpha, good at commanding a social situation and has good people skills, socially aware. Our interests should overlap a bit but I also appreciate differences. Must not be patronizing or a know-it-all.

    As shallow as it is, I like to think that I also should be able to land someone who is the same height as me or taller (I'm 5'8"), attractive and physically fit. Ethnicity is not important, I just need to be attracted to them. The sex has to be good.

    It seems like pretty basic stuff but you would not BELIEVE how hard it is to find someone like this. I've had it once and now I am convinced that I won't settle for anything less. I just can't see anyone who doesn't meet these requirements being able to make me happy :/

      Delete
    5. 32c here. I don't go to gyms unless it's winter. I mostly do 20 - 30 minutes of running.

      I'm in engineering, & I currently give back to society by always participating in the volunteer programs my co-op has (every co-op I've worked has had one). I plan on being more involved in charity when I graduate.

      My political views usually line up with the democrats, although I'm not a hardcore democrat.

      I've been told I have a nice smile, hehe.

      Delete
    6. (32 here) Same for me, I find it easier to be involved with charitable programs during co-op, also due to lack of car since most volunteer work that I am interested in is located in Kitchener.

      Are you in Syde by any chance? I know someone in Syde who kind of fits this description.

Someone who really enjoys life (takes care of their health, has goals and direction) and able to reason things out (logic skills) while also being creative and artistic, has a set of interests that don't necessarily have to intersect my group of interests. Not someone boring with the life goals their parents insist upon.

  29. 5'11' Asian girl here.

    I've been having trouble finding guys that are taller than me and that I am attracted to. Not sure if my standards are high or whether it's because I haven't been socializing with people or partying enough this term. Sometimes I wonder whether it's because of my facial features and my unintentional 24/7 chronic bitch face. :(

    My ideal boyfriend has to be either the same height as me or taller than me. I prefer tall white guys that are not too muscular not skinny. It'd be great if he's fit because that means he can motivate me to work out as well haha. Has to be attractive, humorous, outgoing and confident. I like men with facial hair..some can be very attractive with or without them :D

    He's gotta be smarter and more mature than me. Plays music instrument(s), enjoys outdoor sports and camping would be a plus. Must not smoke or drink excessively. Age: same age or max 2-3 years older.
