How should he spend his spare time, should he like sports, or shopping? Manicures or electronics? Well, in an online survey, The Harris Poll and Dodge Dakota asked 2,131 U.S. adults aged 18 and over to describe the Ideal Man. 1,003 of the participants were men while 1,128 where women. Here are some of the questions they were asked, and what the survey concluded.
