Re: What is your Spouse's Type - do you possess those qualities?

I know this sounds weird, but after 36 years together, and 28 of them married, I'm not 100% sure what my wife's "type" is.

I do know she prefers the tall, dark haired, fit type of male, and that she likes short haired, well-groomed, well-dressed men. I guess if I had to pick a celebrity who she thinks is hot, I would have to say Alec Baldwin in his "Red October" years, or perhaps Clive Owen. She has also commented many times on Arsenal (soccer team) forward Olivier Giroud, who is also 6'4":

There was a time many years ago when I might have looked a bit like Giroud, but now that I am in my mid-50's, not so much.

As for myself, I have always gone for the dark haired, petite, and somewhat curvy body type. Blue or green eyes are a big plus. From a facial standpoint think Katy Perry or Eva Green. In my entire adult life, I don't think I have dated a woman who is over 5'2'" despite my being 6'3" and change.

EDIT: Wanted to let everyone know that I found this picture in a Reddit photo collection called "Lady Boners".

As it turns out, she had never made a list, but was drawn to:
1 Redheads
2 Cheap tightwads
3 People who would never have an opinion she didn't share
4 Staying at home and never venturing out, and wanted someone to cave with her
5 Obedient men

As it turns out, I meet only #1

She was drawn to LOSERS so unfortunately she decided to cheat on me with several of them.
