First I dont believe in perfection, closing your eyes to the world around you in hope for perfection lets the world pass you by. My ideal mate would be a sweet, charming, independant, intelligent with a a bright smile and beautiful eyes. He would need to be emotionally mature, stable, and secure. He would need to have a very strong sense of family values and respect his family. He would be grounded, but a dreamer. He would enjoy sports but cultured things too. He would keep health and fitness a priority but not be obsessed with hir image. He would be extremely gregarious but unfailingly loyal, honest but able to be mischevious, fair but have his own set of values he believes in. He would have deep religious faith but not be over the edge about it. Loves children and wants to have some of his own someday. Close personal relationships are very important to him and he has a dynamic and stable network of friends. He would love to be with me but able to be on his own or with friends and family. He would know me better than anyone on Earth and we would know what the other was thinking even before we said it. He would be playful and affectionate but able to be serious if need be. He would be strong but privately vulnerable. He would let me take care of him but not absolutely need me to. He would enjoy style but able to be casual. He would like a large a beautiful home but be able to keep it warm and open to friends and family. He would be a neat person but not OCD. He would be a little jealous but in a controlled and mature way. He would demand the best from me but understand that though there will be times when I will be too busy to give my all I am always thinking about him and holding him and and our family/families as the top priority. He would rate chemistry as very important - but most important he would be my best friend.
