MADRID – The ideal woman for Spanish bachelors is one who is sure of herself and independent, according to a poll on Tuesday.
The poll to discover the 'perfect partner' was carried out among more than 900 single men in Britain, Spain and Australia by internet dating website Match.com.
Results were published to coincide with the launch of a new Nicole Kidman film about 'Perfect Women'.
The poll shows Spanish men want a woman who "knows how to stick up for herself and demonstrates her character". Some 81 percent said they were looking for an adventurous type and a traveller, and 64 percent said it was important their partner should be successful in her work.
More than half wanted a woman who is economically independent, while only one percent thought the opposite.
However, the Spanish concept of 'modernity' only goes so far. Only 58 percent of Spanish males said they were ready to share household tasks.
Among the Anglos, who were more inclined towards finding "sweet and understanding" partners, 78 percent of the British and 70 percent of the Australians said they were prepared to help around the house.
