Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there are certain things that we can all agree make a man an eligible bachelor. First, the easiest and most obvious thing on the list is that he needs to be a bachelor - a man who is not and has never been married. Once we have that out of the way, there are other criteria that the man should have that will make him desirable to the masses.
To be considered ‘desirable’, the man needs to have it all. He needs to have the esteem, the money, the personal success or family status, the charisma and lastly the good looks.
