The absolute basics of what we Irish men are looking for in a girl can be summed up in a single sentence: we want a woman who’ll respect us, care for us and make us look good, all while having a good laugh. Well it’s not quite so straightforward, because a keeper needs to offer all this and more.It is not just about a good look, whether you look good or make you partner look good, not just about simple respect and humour.
However it's important to recognise that stereotypes do not always apply and that no guide can be true of dating all Irish men it will depend at the end of the day on the Irish man that you meet.
They have the career, the trappings and they want an attractive young lady on their arm to finish this off.
A younger woman is proof they are still young and relevant.
We’ll almost certainly moan when you keep us in check a little, but we’ll respect you for not letting us get away with bad behaviour.
Your spirit is important, nobody is looking for a push over as a long term girlfriend, and we don’t want to feel that we’re your whole life and you rely on us for everything.
