We got real guys to reveal what they think makes a perfect girlfriend-some are obvious, others silly, and some eye-opening.

"She has to be a good listener. I love a girl who shows enthusiasm for stuff that's important to me, whether it's my job or my favourite Xbox game and asks me about it from time to time." - Akshan, 20

"I love a girl with a sense of humour. If she's got the ability to make me laugh, she's definitely a keeper." - Amlan, 21

"I think a woman's independence in a relationship is what makes a guy fall hard for her. Her individual life with hobbies and passions is one of her sexiest assets and should remain that way." - Sanat, 23

"She should be a calm person; I don't know how to deal with women who cry often and for no reason and frankly, I don't want to either." - Tarun, 24

"She needs to be honest with me; I can't stand a woman who acts suspicious. I want to be able to trust her and shouldn't have to interrogate and question her about everything." - Arjun, 22

"It's important that my girlfriend gets along with my friends. I want someone who will get along with the boys and yet hold her own in our circle of friends." - Ashwin, 19

"I need to have the same idea of what fun is as my girlfriend does. For example, I am a speed tourist-I can't last with someone who would take 7 hours at the National Museum-2 hours is plenty, really. I want to see the waterfall, not hike in it for hours. We need to like the same kind of restaurants, parties, etc. Also, be willing to try 'my' things because I will be willing to try yours." - Nikhil, 21

"If I catch a girl searching my phone or she starts suspiciously questioning me, it is over. A great girlfriend is secure in herself, and trusts me. If you put your faith in me, your feelings on the line and just trust me, the last thing I want to do is disappoint you." - Azhar, 23

"She should laugh and often. I'm not into overly giggly women, but I'd like for her to appreciate my sense of humour and for us to share good laughs often." - Avinav, 22

"Great girlfriends don't nag or hassle you or argue all the time. When you complain all the time, I stop listening and start thinking about something else, so you're really just wasting your time." - Vinay, 21

"I don't need an Iron Chef, but a woman who can throw down a respectable meal or two is really important. It's nice to be cooked for every once in a while." - Gaurav, 22

"I want to be my girlfriend's boyfriend, not her girlfriend. I can't stand it when a girl blabs on and on about her friends' drama or even worse-celebrity gossip." - Jaideep, 21

"Please ladies, don't ask to have 'the talk' about exclusivity after a month, or bring me to meet your parents on our third date. I don't want to talk about what it would be like to have kids with you just because you saw a cute kid on our fourth date. And buying me a gift to celebrate two months of dating is out of the question. Take it slow and let things unravel naturally." - Aditya, 20

"A good girlfriend, no matter what, will never ever flirt with my friends, no matter how much better-looking they are than me." - Karan, 24

"I'm not a jealous person and girls who try to make me jealous are not cool. Also, don't perform secret little tests to see what I will do in certain situations-I know what you are up to, and I will pass every time, but you will fail because it is annoying and shows that you are insecure in our relationship." - Mankaran, 23

"One of the best things a girl can do to show she cares is to notice the little things that might help me out in my life and take care of them for me-like if I am working late, offer to bring me dinner or if I've been complaining that my back is bothering me from a lot of business travel, book a massage for me at the local spa. These are the things I do for my girlfriends and it is nice to have them reciprocate every once in a while." - Prasanjit, 21

"You have to be yourself. A thousand percent yourself, all the time. A bad girlfriend morphs herself into what she thinks I want her to be instead of being confident enough in her own skin to just be herself. If we are meant to be a match, our natural selves will mesh, if not, we won't. I am not going to change for a girl and a girl shouldn't change for me, either." - Nitin, 24

"The higher maintenance the girl, a bigger pain she will be according to me. A woman who is down to earth is much more appealing-someone who can go with the flow and isn't caught up in superficiality and little things that really don't matter." - Shyam, 23

"Here's the thing. I like me for me and you should, too. If you don't, then don't be with me. Trying to change me (the way I brush my hair, how I eat my food, what I say, etc.) is an exercise in futility and just makes you a bitchy girlfriend." - Nitant, 23

"A great girlfriend is someone who doesn't get bent out of shape when I try to do 'guy things' like watch the game or occasionally hang out with my friends. She should be quite happy to send me out for a guy's night." - Sukrit, 23

"I know this has been debated to death, but it's attractive when a girl doesn't make the first move. If the woman is always the one calling, she will neverknow if I am really interested in her or if it's just convenient for me. She may find herself questioning the relationship every step of the way. Men simply aren't programmed to think like that and therefore are better suited to the chase." - Prabal, 21

"A great girlfriend would be my best 'wingwoman' and help me look good in front of my boss, laugh at my jokes, and stand up for me and help me shine when it is important. Of course, I would do the same for her." - Mihir, 21

"I'd be most attracted to someone who doesn't pressurise me too much. I have an aversion to any sort of pressure in general, and I tend to stay away from women constantly calling and/or e-mailing me throughout the day or dropping hints about the future. - Raghav, 22

"One trait that I think is very important in a woman is the ability to be non-interfering. I would not want to be with someone who is constantly trying to pry in other people's business, including mine. Honesty is a good policy, but that does not mean I want you giving my mother advice on what to do about the cleaning lady." - Rohan, 23

"An intelligent woman is most attractive for obvious reasons. Also, she will constantly surprise me and keep me on my toes. I would want a woman with opinion and her own point-of-view." - Rohan B, 25
