The Perfect Husband Would Be....

Okay, girls, let's play a game. In the spirit of bloggers counselling men to have impossibly high standards when searching for the Perfect Wife, let's construct The Perfect Husband.

Everyone gets to add a comparison. The format must be "and as __________ as ______________...."

I'll begin.

The Perfect Husband would be as hardworking as Boxer the Horse in Animal Farm...

and as hot as Ryan Gosling. Swoon!

Brigid said...

and as gentle as the most skillful cowboy. (OK, maybe this analogy only works for people who've spent time around horse whisperers.)

Hehehehe @ Stellamaris. "Impossibly high" was spot on.


... and as generous as Caleb Garth in "Middlemarch".

Nzie said...

and as steadfast and stouthearted as Samwise!

THe perfect husband would be as faithful as John Watson is to Sherlock Holmes.

Athanasius lover said...

and as close to Jesus as John the Beloved was at the Last Supper.

Casey said...

And as funny as PG Wodehouse. :D

as steady and noble as Mr.Knightly in Emma ;)

Affectionate said...

as good at kissing as John Thornton in North & South.

Claire said...

as confident about winning my affections as St. Therese was in being loved by Jesus.

Not that I'm Jesus in this analogy...errrr ok, maybe that's what it sounds like but it's just an analogy.

As well dressed as Bertram Wooster, and as brainy as Jeeves.

Magdalen said...

and as witty as Lord Goring.

Leah said...

. . . able to solve any problem with duct tape and a pocket knife, like Macgyver.

Lucy said...

and as devoted to his wife and children as Pa Ingalls of 'Little House on the Prairie'.

Gregaria said...

And with as big a heart as Pope John Paul II.

as cheerful and optimistic and resourceful as Razumikhin!

@Claire. Don't worry. We're looking for "over the top" here!

Pearlmusic said...

... as humble, loving, reliable and at the same time as coureageous as Saint Joseph! If we should aim at emulating Virgin Mary, then, you guys, have a go about this!

And as hot as the Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel (by the way, how do we know if Saint Joseph was not hot.. perhaps he was, yay!)

MaryJane said...

Oh! If we're going over the top...

...as wealthy as Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and as generous as St. Thomas More.

{Who, if people don't know, routinely had poor people over for dinner. And made sure his daughter was well-educated, which is a different kind of generosity, but generosity nonetheless.}

Martita said...

As marvelously silly as Donald O'Connor.

If we're going for over the top, why stop at pretty-boy Ryan Gosling (who I must admit really does nothing for me, but that's just me...), when you could have Colin Firth????

as strong as a warrior...
as wise as a wizard...
and as kind as summer.

Oh, and as mysterious as the dark side of the moon.

P. S. @Martita, I completely second that about Donald O' Connor.

SundayBorn said...

... and as confident as James Bond!

These are great, I love the diversity!

Magdalena said...

... and as kind-hearted as James Herriot. (from the tv series, I don't know the books.)

Jam said...

The thought of "hot St Joseph" makes me giggle. Oh dear oh dear.

I generally think the perfect man would be some blend of Alexis de Tocqueville (smart, hot), "Doctor Boli" (entertaining imagination and love of the weird), and Manolo the Shoeblogger (duh, values investing in beautiful shoes).

Sherwood said...

have as wonderful a voice as the Phantom of the Opera.

Modesty said...

As pure of heart and chaste as Sir Gawain.
As talented and beefy as Hugh Jackman.
As tough as Chuck Norris' reputation.
As imaginative as C.S. Lewis.
As princely as a Disney Prince. LOL. (I can't tell you how many articles I've read about Disney princes lying to women for years.)

Rae said...

as noble as Faramir, and as patient as Gilbert Blythe. :D

Sheila said...

Oh man. I love these. Caught the Mulan reference; excellent!

... and as thoughtful as Hamlet,
and have an accent as hot as Antonio Banderas,
and as poetic as St. John of the Cross,
and as good a dad as George Bailey,
and as attuned to nature as Natty Bumppo,
and as fierce to his enemies and gentle to his lady as The Virginian.

...as adventurous as the Doctor, and as honest as Abe Lincoln.
