Given it’s almost the Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be fun to start my Valentine’s Day blog series with my dream boy. So here it is my boyfriend criteria checklist with all the qualities a guy ought to have to have chances with me.
Remember my New Year’s resolution? I promised myself to finally give a chance to love. Honestly, even though the Valentine’s Day is almost here, I haven’t done much regarding this resolution so far. Yet I got so many hits on Instagram, Facebook and mail from guys, hoping for a slight chance. Well, you know what? I had enough! The truth is that if we don’t meet at the golf course, opera, fashion show, point Alexandre, hotel Costes, my friend’s party, or some business gathering, you are probably out of the game anyway. Well, unless you have everything from this list and you turn out to be my dream guy.

MY DREAM GUY
So what does my perfect guy look like, the one and only I might fall in love for real? You know, as I already wrote in one of my 5 Questions 5 Answers post (the one here), I’m really not that kind of a girl who would fall in love on the go. Well, my dream guy should be, firstly older than me. Not even a day younger. Yet not too old either. Handsome for sure. He has to look good in the photos. I mean I wouldn’t carry an ugly purse around. Then, he has to have a great sense of humour and get all my jokes. Furthermore, he should … You know what, let’s just go to my list.
MEET MY DREAM BOY
Wait, first check these Chanel boy bags I love. You know, in case we don’t find a perfect boy, we can at least have a perfect Chanel boy bag.
Now seriously, let’s check my boyfriend criteria checklist.
Ps. You can play a game with your friends and help me find my dream guy. I made a list of all the things my perfect future boyfriend should have. You can find it somewhere at the bottom of the post.
MY PERFECT FUTURE BOYFRIEND CRITERIA CHECKLIST
Before you start reading my boyfriend criteria checklist, I must warn you, my list of all the qualities my dream guy should have is long. Like really long. Don’t worry there’s a little break in between. You know, a fashion break. I added few words about this chic outfit that I’m wearing here. So keep reading to find some fashion in all this fun writing.
BOYFRIEND REQUIREMENTS LIST
MY PERFECT FUTURE BOYFRIEND SHOULD BE
#1 1-10 YEARS OLDER THAN ME
Sorry guys, but I’m ain’t gonna be your mama. Or your older sister. Nither I need a father. I already have one.
#2 HANDSOME AND PHOTOGENIC
I probably don’t even need to say I have an eye for beauty, do I? I am a Libra after all. Besides, imagine a photo of me and some ugly guy standing there still and boring. I mean I do this for a living, and I need someone to match me in the photos too.
In short, to pass my boyfriend criteria checklist, a guy should be tall (as I wear high heels all the time) and slender. I would never fall for a chubby fat guy.
He should be well behaved, a legit gentleman. One of those who would open the doors for me, carry my luggage, walk in first to make sure it’s safe for me, be polite to everyone, knows how to behave in every situation. Sure, I can open the door by myself, but hey, if there’s a guy next to me, that is his task to do.
In short, shaved with silky skin. There is nothing more, apart from bad breath, that I hate with men than a beard. Surely, 5 o’clock beard does look attractive. Yet not near my face. My skin is far too sensitive for this. You don’t want to cause me rashes or even worse cuts on my face, do you?
Also, my dream guy should have a perfect, silky skin. Use the face cream (just don’t steal mine, stealing from girls is a no-no), put on foundation (for men obviously), and visit a dermatologist if you have any skin problems.
Oh, but never ever use the mascara. Apart from the light foundation and matte lip balm, my man should not use makeup.
#5 BE A BUSINESSMAN
I want a businessman. Or at least guy who knows what Forex, Dow Joans, Nasdaq, and plain vanilla mean.
He should also play golf. But he should always allow me to drive the golf cart.
#7 AN EUROPEAN OR AMERICAN, OR AUSTRALIAN CAUCASIAN
Well, don’t look like that. I don’t want my parents to ditch me out of their will. Or even worse, house. Because they certainly would if I presented them someone named ić (or even ič), not Caucasian or someone raised in a different culture, as my guy. Don’t think they are racists, but they just don’t want their daughters to have to deal with cultural differences. Honestly, I don’t want to deal with this either. Love should be all about fun, don’t you think?
I speak 8 languages so my guy shouldn’t step far behind. Although, I would actually prefer if my dream guy didn’t speak Slovenian at all. Just to make an excuse, “I don’t get you” legit.
No, I don’t want him to be creative in making excuses. But creative in general. Especially when it comes to the presents.
MR DREAMY SHOULD LOVE …
#10 SHOULD LOVE ME
Obviously, should love me. There is nothing more to add. Only, perhaps, that he should love animals too. Guys with puppies are just adorable, aren’t they?
#11 LOVE FASHION
I guess I should make this a number one requirement. My dream guy should love fashion as much as I do. I don’t want fashion to come in between us every time we walked down the Avenue Montaigne.
FASHION IN BETWEEN
Well, fashion is coming in between this wishlist though. I know you girls want to find out more about this outfit that I’m wearing here.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
Won’t deny it. I do look like a snow queen, don’t I? Anyway, be sure to click/touch the items you want to shop on the EDIT. A link will take you straight to the shop where you can buy it. Or simply find them in the widget below if this sounds too complicated.
I’m wearing Weekend Maxmara double-breasted coat (last seen here), faux fur headband from Bart’s (shop here). Under the coat I’m wearing a suede skirt from Theory (last seen here), a tweed blazer (get similar here) and brown over the knee boots from Stuart Weitzman (shop here). Also, I’m holding a black top handle bag (shop similar here) and wearing leather gloves (get here).
BACK TO MY DREAM GUY CRITERIA CHECKLIST
SO HOW DOES MY PERFECT GUY LOOK LIKE?
MY DREAM BOY SHOULD LIKE …
#12 LIKE OPERA AND CLASSICAL MUSIC
It’s no secret classical music is my favourite and how much I love opera. I certainly don’t want a guy who I would have to drag to the opera house only to see him yawning in the middle of my favourite aria.
#13 LIKE ART
Nor I want a guy who doesn’t appreciate art. Not saying he should know how to paint, but he should like art enough to clean all of my brushes (paint brushes, not makeup) and take me to the every art gallery in the town.
#14 LIKE TO TRAVEL
#15 LIKE LONG LONG WALKS AND RUNS
Don’t think I’m looking for a salon guy. My dream guy is a bit of an athlete too. I already mentioned he should play golf. But he should also like to run and walk just like me. And by walk, I mean 15 km in a row.
#16 LIKE CHOCOLATE
Because I still haven’t made my mind if I like chocolate or not. So it would be great to have someone by my side who would eat all the chocolates I get.
HE SHOULD HAVE
#17 GREAT STYLE
My perfect guy wears Hedi Slimane suit on duty and leather jacket on the day off. But also a salon casual look.
#18 GREAT HAIR
I chose Brunette as part of the name of my brand for a reason. My hair means so much to me. Plus, grat hair signalizes something quite important of a man. You know what I mean. Ps. Read how to get a great hair over here. Let’s make hair fallout someone else’s problem.
#19 HAVE GREAT ORAL HYGIENE AND BEAUTIFUL TEETH
I suffered (well still suffering) a horrible pain to have beautiful teeth. And so should he. Besides, teeth are the first thing I notice in people (the second is nose). And kissing a guy with bad breath is just disgusting.
#20 HAS A GREAT SENSE OF A HUMOR
To get all my jokes of course.
ALSO, HE SHOULD
#21 USE THE SAME PERFUME I USE OR LIKE
Wait, don’t think I would spray him with some floral, fruit and unbearable sweet perfume. You do know I use merely La Collection Privée Christian Dior which is for men and women. Cheepy men fragrances make my nose hurt, or sometimes even bleed.
#22 WAKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING
Just like me. And by early, I mean at 5 o’clock. Well, I guess I could ditch this from my wishlist. Once he meets me, he will want to get up early in the morning.
#23 SHAVE EVERY DAY
I already mentioned this. But I’m mentioning again because it’s really important to me. I told you why once before in my 5 answers here in case you forgot.
#24 KNOW HOW TO TAKE GREAT PHOTOS
Correction, he should know how to take great photos of me. In fact, this is a test I give to every guy. To make sure he would be up as a blogger’s boyfriend too. Not implying he would have to become my personal photographer. I’m quite pleased with my mother and sister. But he should be able to step in sometimes. Besides, this reveals far more than just his photographic skills. I believe only a person who truly loves you can take stunning photos of you.
#25 SHOULD MAKE ME FEEL FREE
Finally, he should make me feel free. One of my friends once said that love is when you feel the freedom next to the other person. Not sure exactly what she meant by this, but I just don’t want a guy checking on me all the time. And making me feel like his prisoner.
BUT HE SHOULDN’T
#26 HE SHOULDN’T MAKE ME FEEL ANXIOUS
As said, I don’t want a guy who would make me feel like his prisoner or make me feel anxious in any way.
#27 HE SHOULDN’T CALL ME ALL THE TIME
I need space. Quite lots of it. One call or message on every few days is more than enough for me. And no, this doesn’t mean I will be the one keep calling him. Far from that. Although I do promise, I won’t call only when I need help.
#28 HE SOULDN’T BE DOMINANT
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want a guy who doesn’t know how to take the lead. He just shouldn’t try to be my boss. A leader is not the same thing as a boss. Whatsoever, a businessman should know this.
#29 HE SHOULDN’T HAVE TATTOOS
I know, with all this hipster-mania, this will probably stay merely as a wish. But, as long as he doesn’t tattoo my name we are good.
#30 HE SHOULDN’T SMOKE
#31 HE SHOULDN’T GET IN MY HAIR
Oh, I just hate when people try to touch my hair. Keep your fingers away from my hair.
#32 SHOULDN’T BE AFRAID OF THE HIGHTS
Finally, I promise this one is the last one. Or is it? Anyway, my dream guy shouldn’t be afraid of the hights. As simple as that.
SO DO YOU KNOW MY DREAM GUY?
I hope you had so much fun reading my list as I had writing it. Although I must say I doubt there is such a guy. Well, in case I don’t find one, let’s just hope I do fall in love with one that is at least 99 % of a match. Ps. Send me over the checklist in case you find my dream guy. And before the Valentine’s Day, please! You know I decided to use those ideas I gave you on what to do for the Valentine’s Day if you are single last year, for the Galentine’s Day this year.
