This process analysis offers a guide for women who tend to settle for less than they deserve in the dating arena. The paper presents a list of characteristics that women should look for in a potential boyfriend--sweet and unique, honorable and ethical, ambitious, communicative and cooperative. The author argues that even though the process of finding the right guy is challenging, girls can easily prevent themselves from dating uninteresting guys by looking for these qualities in the men they meet.

From the Paper:

" Essentially, women have been looking for the man of their dreams since the idea of the perfect guy was created. Every woman wants that flawless relationship, yet she continuously runs herself into situations that are anything but picture perfect. According to the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, "The annual per capita divorce rate for the 12 months ending in June, 2007 -- the latest figures currently available -- show an annual rate of 0.34 divorces (i.e., 0.68 people getting divorced) for every 100 people in the population" ( Such high divorce statistics often scare couples into not getting married. The statistic also indicates that woman are getting into relationships for the wrong reasons. Before any man or woman decides to marry, he or she has to see herself living the rest of her life with that one person. Nonetheless, these statistics display that there is something wrong with the reasons people choose to be together. Absolutely every girl wants to find her prince charming, but realistically, there will not be any dream man. Luckily, a compatible loving person is very possible to find; there are just a couple central qualities and characteristics every girl needs to look for. These next few qualities are key to finding the right guy."
