Top 10 Types of Guy You’d Like to Date

saizensen-kun-advancing

A ranking of the types of man Japanese women would like to try dating suggests most would like to be hunted down and ravaged like lambs, whilst the least popular choice of man should by now come as no surprise.

The ranking:

1. Carnivorous guys (5124 votes) [the opposite of a herbivorous man]

2. Sporty guys (2398 votes)

3. Bespectacled guys (1627 votes)

4. Herbivorous guys (1377 votes) [a detailed description can be found here]

5. “Iku-men” (1217 votes) [men who take an active and equal interest in childcare – the “iku” is a pun on the character for “rearing,” “育” or “iku,” and the long established slang “ikemen,” meaning a handsome man]

6. Science guys (1176 votes)

7. Sweet-tooth guys (977 votes) [men with an enthusiastic liking for sweet things]

8. Bento guys (968 votes)

9. Other guys (913 votes)

10. Otaku guys (381 votes)

For those wondering, “otaku” is of course dead last, there being no more than 10 options offered.

    What the hell. They don't just want us to cook, now they want us to take care of the children too? Women have gone nuts!

    ...so you think it's not cool if a father actually acts like a father?
    Alot of japanese men just work all the time and never have time to play with their kids. I dont know about you, but I think its pretty important for a kid to spend time with both their mother and father. So it's little wonder that the idea of a man that is 'good with kids' has become such a popular idea with Japanese women, since it's something a lot of western people would take for granted.

    The definition given was "equal interest". I doubt you see that happening anywhere in the world.

    ...again, why shouldnt a father have an equal interest in raising his own damn kids? Unless you want so many more generations to grow up all emo and "MY FATHER NEVER LOVED ME!!!1"

    The carnivore guys are those with the rat-race status, wealth and power. After that it seems like second priority for these women is good looks and then lastly personality.

    "Where are all the good men at?"
    Now we know what they mean when they say that.
    Look good, and have money. You can be abusive, cheat, and be an all around bad person. That's apparently what they want.

    Meanwhile I am looking for a girl who's a sweetheart. I don't care if she's poor, in debt, "ugly", or "out of shape". I just want to make someones day better for the rest of their life. Sadly sweethearts no longer exist...

    Great world we live in... Smh.

    WTF! Otaku actually got 381 votes??? I could be wrong but assuming that 1 out of every 10 super hardcore otaku like real women, these 381 votes will make 1 out of every 10 otaku cry tears of joy.

    Here's a brief translation and insight onto what kind of women are into those types.

    1. Carnivorous guys- Translation: Controlling, aggressive, possibly abusive.
    Women who want this: Weak, insecure, sheepish, and possibly masochistic.
    2. Sporty guys- Translation: Douchebag jock.
    Women who want this: Vain, popularity and image obsessed women. Interested in the status of having a good looking trophy boyfriend.
    3. Bespectacled guys- Translation: Megane guy.
    Women who want this: They're interested in this type because they want a smart looking guy (Because if they were smart they'd know not everyone with glasses is smart). They have a megane fetish. Or are possibly a gold digger due to the fact intelligent men tend to have higher paying jobs.
    4. Herbivorous guys- Translation: Weaker willed, will go with the flow.
    Women who want this: Controlling women who want to impose their will on their boyfriend, possibly sadists. Or if they're innocent, they seek an easy going guy who will be nice to them and listen to them.
    5. “Iku-men”- Translation: Nice guy type.
    Women who want this: Naive girls who want a nice man that is handsome and they would want to marry. Definitely on the more innocent end of the spectrum.
    6. Science guys- Translation: Smart guys.
    Women who want this: Women looking for an intelligent person to converse, have fun with, and relate to. Though possibility for gold digger are high here.
    7. Sweet-tooth guys- Translation: Cute and innocent type.
    Women who want this: Girls who want someone who is friendly and that they can relate to. Wanting someone sensitive and who will treat them well. Usually interested in more light relationships for fun and a good time.
    8. Bento guys- Translation: Guy who can cook and do other domestic tasks.
    Women who want this: Girls who want to be taken care of and be spoiled a bit.
    9. Other guys- Translation unnecessary.
    Women who want this: Girls who didn't like any of the categories, couldn't decide what they wanted, or girls who realize it's stupid to decide your boyfriend by a vague stereotypical "type".
    10. Otaku guys- Translation unnecessary.
    Women who want this type: Female otaku. Or women wanting security because they pretty much know an otaku wouldn't cheat on them or leave them for another women (another 3d woman at least).

    Personally I think it's stupid to pick a boyfriend by some vague type. I think I'd want a guy who has similar interests to me, is decently attractive, and someone I can generally relate to and rely on emotionally. So I'd probably vote other or otaku. But then again that might be why I'm single TT^TT

    Translation to this whole translation thing: I am a butt-hurt otaku so I am trying to find excuses why women don't want me.

    Grow up, have a spine, get a decent job so you can improve your lifestyle, stop fapping to 2D representation of women. That's how you get respect from your peers.

    Except this "otaku" has a girlfriend, stable job, has a social life, and is being respected by the people who's under him and above him.

    @13:51 Who ever said I was a man? :P I'm merely giving my insight onto what I've observed from other girls. I don't think very highly of them when they pick jerks over good guys half the time. Don't get me wrong I don't only despise a large percentage of women, there are a lot of the douchey guys that I can't stand. Sir/ma'am, it's not wise to judge with out knowing the least about me or my lifestyle. You just like to judge people to make yourself feel superior. Next time promptly stfu.

    This post is super old so I apologize for this incredibly late comment.

    I'm right there with you on that. I'd like to find a girl who has similar interests with me. Decently attractive would be a plus. I'd like to lean on someone emotionally, and feel safe enough around them that I could fall asleep near. If she labeled herself as an otaku I definitely would be interested though because that's the right track to possibly having the same interests. Although... My interests most likely aren't reciprocated by any females. I'll be single forever. xD Hahaha.

    Don't worry guys, this is not really depressing news because:

    1) Most women suck
    2) Most women are ugly
    3) Most women suck
    4) Did I mention that women suck?

    Conclusion: Who really cares what most women want.

    And yes, I suck too.

    2 <- i liked a sporty guy first so maybe
    3 <- nah i want my children to have the chance of not using glasses, i use them myself
    8 <- whats that o-o
    9 <- maybe a funny and charming type
    10 <- only if the guy isnt like the one in the pic EKK

    Well im not a "normal" woman cuz my first reason for mating in the future is just to have kids (my mother's request), that's why if i don't find the love of my life i will use the services of a sperm bank yay!!! or a male escort but those might have STDs, such a difficult choice

    Apparently it evolutionary genetics or something. The guy who goes around screwing girls and treating them like crap is usually a more successful person and have a better chance of allowing their young to pass on their genes. Or something like that. Confident and assertive people are more likely to take leadership roles I guess; the traits that leads one to being confident though, probably have a lot to do with it as well.

    So the NTR problem men experience is due to a genetic mistake huh? Girls turn themselves into objects to attract the carnivores. Then they complain about being treated as such. But they still ask for more in the end.

    21st Century Earth is turning into a hell for making lasting healthy relationships.

    As with most survey data, there may be a (small or large) difference between what _SURVEYED_ women _PUBLICLY CLAIMED_ they want, vs what they _REALLY_ want.
