Spot any contradictions in my list of 50?

Of course you did, because there is no such thing as a perfect woman. Perfection is a silly level that we all may say we strive for but in reality nobody ever attains it and will often contradict them if they claim they have. Still, I can guarantee you that the man in your life would appreciate at least 30 out of this list so if you have 25 or more of these traits then you are a winner my dear, a certified winner.

Fellas, what do you think? Did I leave anything off that isn’t crass like “bare-footed and in the kitchen making bacon”? What do you think of the 50?
