Defining the #perfectcompanion

Some of our favorite responses to our @Chicago_Reader entreaty: Tweet what makes yr ideal mate

Note to self: Don't die alone - FOUND MAGAZINE

This nugget of gold came to us from the good people at Found magazine—and it inspired us to ask Twitterers to tweet us their #idealmate (with the results being only slightly less bleak).

Here are some of our favorite responses:

@jennifermiayoon: Maladjusted with emotional baggage. Socially inept. Deadpan. Bespectacled.

@ajanbrothers: this is too easy: beard, flannel, cabin, hatchet - basically a real-life, non-hip lumberjack.

@borrachabaker: Snarky bastard with a heart of gold. Bonus points if he looks like a lumberjack.

@Josevedo: Is my Netflix Instant account in human form.

@ChrisDavisCW: My #idealmate would not try to look past the surface, & would simply judge me for the beautiful person I am on the outside.
