Sure, Kramer and George get a lot of love for their eccentric personalities, but I’ve always had a huge crush on Jerry. Here are ten legitimate reasons why Jerry Seinfeld would make the perfect boyfriend.
It’s really important that the guy I’m dating is aware of his surroundings and the people around him. Who wants some oblivious guy who doesn’t pick up on social cues? Jerry always understands the subtext of a situation and is able to philosophize about it. It’s his job.
They say friends are the best way to judge someone’s character. If that’s true, then Jerry is awesome. His friends are as diverse and quirky as they come and oh so lovable. But most importantly, they all love Jerry. That’s a great sign.
Confidence is crucial in boyfriend material. A lack of self confidence can result in some serious relationship issues, including cheating. Jerry has a quiet confidence about him and is super comfortable in his own skin. That is sexy.
Who wants some bullshitter who says you are beautiful when you woke up hungover with mascara on your nose? Not I. I appreciate when people are honest with me. If I’m being completely crazy or unreasonable, I need someone to tell me. Jerry would.
A man who takes pride in his hygiene is a great treasure. I cannot stand sloppy guys who were spoiled by their mommy and expect me to follow in her footsteps. Jerry is responsible and clean like a real grown up.
It may sound strange but I actually like when guys have dated a lot of girls before me. It means they know what they are doing in a relationship (and in bed). Also, when they finally settle down, it means more because they know what’s out there and already ruled it out.
Some may say Jerry’s irreverence is selfish, but i find his lighthearted attitude delightful. Who wants someone who takes every little thing too seriously? Jerry always sees the bigger picture and humor in the situation.
Most guys (and lots of ladies) love competitive sports, but I can’t stand when the guy I’m dating is fanatical about it. Betting and screaming at the TV just doesn’t do it for me. Jerry is a healthy balance.
People come to Jerry when they have a problem because they know he can help them out. He is intelligent, logical and rather street savvy. And let’s face it, sometimes we need our partner’s rational advice.
Who doesn’t love gifts? I certainly do. They don’t need to be big fancy things, but a little something that shows me he was thinking about me. Ok, so Jerry may not be the best gift giver, but it really is the thought that counts.
