ringedstud's ideal man list

in one of my online research spurts, i found a profile over at with a list. a 100 item "ideal man" list that is "NOT an application for ANYTHING" but just a scorecard type thing where one can see if they are compatible with the guy who created the list, ringedstud.

reading his profile i find that he's a well aged 40 year old man, quite hairy, piercings in lower body, has stubble facial hair and is into leather. he is also a supporter of we should all support websites such as + for their free services. [hint: the only way ringedstud's profile link works is after you agree to the terms + conditions warning on]

below is his master "ideal man" list. it shows that he last logged in today, may 16th 2005 so ringedstud is still looking for the "ideal man". he says that when we create our list, we should start with #100 first which will put a whole different spin on your individual list. go ahead and start your own list on your blog. i'm curious what everyone's would be.

[100.] Knows that I’d be doing all of these things and more for him and us too.

this blogmaster can't whistle. i do suprise people with my creativity. i won't read to anyone while they're driving. i also hate clowns but my reasons come from a movie called poltergeist. i also cry + read labels. but i would pay top dollar for a trendy car, not a reliable car. overall i'm about 62% match for a guy like ringedstud.

should we always be a perfect match for someone? no. the best moments in a relationship is learning how to understand someone other than yourself. have fun creating your own list and i bow to ringedstud for creating such a detailed, thought provoking list. i'm working on mine to post in the coming weeks.

Try to live up to this guy's expectations or just shoot yourself in the head? Which would be easier?

sorry.. but what a douche.
its always hard to write a "decent" personal ad online, since you KNOW there are tons of freaks that are going to reply, so of course you try to narrow it down.

but you can also go a bit overboard. i bet he would be only happy if he could clone himself.

hey guys, it's just an online ad. nothing that is going to personally effect you in anyway. it's a harmless ad that is not meant for perfection but an example of what could be perfection. no one is complete perfection but i'd like to think we're all ideal in some way to someone.

thank you ringedstud for the list.

i just finished reading ringedstud's list of preferences for his ideal guy. honestly i dont see what is so wrong with that. most of the above posts are criticising this guy for having an extensive list. the only thing i think that is different between ringedstud and the rest of us is that he verbalized what he would like. the rest of us have similar do's and dont's that we apply to people, but it doesn't seem like we have that much becase we dont sit down and really think about what works for us and what doesn't. at least with a list like that, you know what kind of person you are talking to, whether or not you will be interested in them and if they in turn will be interested in you. thanks for bearing with me through my ranting hehehe. by the way, i meet up with 82% of that list.

the ideal man is the one who connects with you in every form.
I can't say what an ideal man is.Simply because, every person is different and everybody have good things and bad things too.
Now, want to spend the rest of your life alone? Make a list of the ideal man!

I believe the list is more a reflection of himself than what he wants in a partner ( thats the point of reading #100 first)
