Poll: British Women Have No ‘Perfect Man’


LONDON, Dec. 14 (UPI) —  A British hair care product company said its survey of women found most rated their man as only 69 percent perfect.

Remington, which conducted the Nov. 27-Dec. 3 poll of 2,000 women to mark the release of its Touch Control beard and stubble trimmer, found respondents did not believe in the “perfect man,” with unkempt facial hair being a common complaint.

The survey, which suggests most women prefer facial hair to be groomed to tidy stubble, also found many of those polled complained about their husbands and boyfriends not getting along with their families, using their significant other’s toothbrush, leaving a dirty toilet and driving “like a boy racer.”

“It seems that women are actually quite realistic on what they look for from their partner,” said Nikki McReynolds, marketing director for Remington. “While they might happily overlook a few common flaws from their guys, there are certain behaviors that men just won’t get away with.”
