Cardiff’s ‘perfect girlfriend’ has been revealed in a survey of over 2,000 men by a location-based mobile dating app.

According to the survey by LOVOO, the perfect girl for Cardiff men is 5ft 6 inches tall, eats curry, has no tattoos and her favourite TV show is Doctor Who.

The survey also found Cardiff men like a girl with blonde or brown hair who drives a Vauxhall Corsa and supports Manchester United.

When asked to pick a celebrity most closely resembling their perfect girl, most Cardiff respondents chose athlete Jessica Ennis unlike men in Swansea who chose Cheryl Cole.

But researchers also found Cardiff men said they don’t think the perfect woman exists.

Sarah Dewe Mathews, spokesperson for the survey, said: “Men who responded from Cardiff don’t think they will meet the perfect woman and will have to compromise.

“But those in a relationship believe their wife or girlfriend is the perfect woman for them.”

Founder of LOVOO, Benjamin Bak, said: “We think that men shouldn’t avoid women who might support an opposing football team or enjoy a different genre of films, this might be being a bit too picky.

“After all, variety is the spice of life.”

But not everyone is pleased with the results. Catherine Raine, a member of Cardiff Feminist Network, said: “I think it is a load of rubbish! It seems to me to be yet another piece of nonsense designed to tell women that they’re not good enough as they are and how they need to change if they want to impress men.”
