Yes, my husband is my dream man. He’s very bright, sweet, chivalrous, and caring. I love the kindness and respect which shows everyone he comes into contact with. The tenderness that my husband shows animals and children is beautiful to watch. My husband is the best lover I have ever had (That’s saying a lot haha) and he’s also an amazing kisser who showers me with affection. I love his sky blue eyes, his height, the shape of his lips, the bald head and full beard look he’s rocking, and his deep voice.

I never dreamed of an ideal man, so never had a ‘man of my dreams’ . I suppose l had an unconscious list of qualities, and if in the unlikely event l were looking again l would be more conscious about it.
But Himself and l have been together for years and years and love each other enough to expect it to be only death parting us.
I don’t call him my ‘best friend’ either as seems quite common on these boards. I’m always a tad taken aback when a poster says she’s married/marrying her best friend. I’m closer to him than anyone on earth, but l don’t rely on him to be my best friend. , l have actual friends for that.

I, too, never had a dream man in my head. I think the closest I would come to “man of my dreams” would be someone I felt comfortable being ridiculous and silly and comfortable with. And I found him! Or, rather, he found me.

re: best friend, I feel the same way. My husband is definitely not my best friend; I don’t have sex with friends, best or otherwise lol.

The man of my dreams:
Honest and loyal with a good heart, someone who is kind and respectful to everyone. Must have empathy.
Someone who is self-motivated and can ‘adult’. But not ambitious career wise – turns me off and I don’t know why. I prefer ambition in ways like wanting to develop as a person or get good at a hobby.
Physically – just someone I am attracted to and have chemistry with. Usually I am not attracted to what is ‘considered attractive’. People are always like ‘are you serious?!’ when I point out someone I find good-looking.
I hope my dream man is achievable – but probably too much to ask!

I never had a dream man. I had a dream job, a dream life but not a dream man even though I went though a phase in my teens were I really tried to make up one. I am with the best human being ever, atleast in my personal opinion, so I am thinking that kind of counts.

I also never had a a dream man (apart from Alexander Skarsgard).
My DH also definitely isn’t who I thought I’d end up with. If I had to pick characteristics, I’d have gone for sensible and socially acceptable things like stable, similar family background and education, good job, funny, etcetc. He’s none of that and I probably never would have ended up with him if I’d had some kind of mental checklist. It turns out that actually, other things tickle my pickle much more in the long-term… he’s strong physically and mentally (could protect me in a life and death situation), he’s determined, he supports my ambitions, we’re on the same page about life things, he’s hot AF & the sex is… fiery.
And agreed on the best friend thing – he’s definitely not that. We don’t have a ‘friend’ kind of relationship.

I don’t know if I have or had a dream guy. I’ve always just wanted looked for an over all great guy, attractive, smart, funny, family oriented, with goals and dreams. He’s not a billionaire (yet, he says), but I’d say my husband pretty much hits the nail on the head 😉

I like this question because my ex had a daugher who is now an adult, and we are very close. When I told her I was moving back to the city I grew up in, she commented, “Maybe you’ll meet the man of your dreams…” The comment struck me, as it was just filled with such youthful optimism!
And funny, but beyond the obvious requirements one should have for a potential lifetime partner, my one unique want was that he have a large family with neices and nephews all running around at gatherings. I am an only child, and cousins are all way older, so I never had the “big family” experience. And the man I fell in love with here has only a few family members still living, and all are in a different state, and oddly enough, his friend group is mostly comprised of non-parents. So technically speaking, he’s not the “man of my dreams,” but he totally is!
