All right ladies, this is for you. Especially when you're young, you think you can find the perfect man. But what kind of guy qualifies as perfect?

A new survey asked women about the characteristics they look for in a guy.

The most important was having a good education followed by hardworking and being a "gentleman."

Only one percent picked "athlete" as a top priority.

On the flip side, bad tempers and drinking problems were the qualities most people would like to change.

The survey also found the perfect man is a 40-year-old successful doctor who drinks in moderation and looks exactly like Patrick Dempsey.

When asked which celebrity character women would like to marry, a third said Dr. Derek Shephard, also known as "McDreamy."

Robb from "Game of Thrones" and Jack from "30 Rock" also made the list.

The poll was done by "60 Minutes" and "Vanity Fair."

We talked more about the survey results and what they mean this morning on "Good Day Philadelphia." You can watch that conversation in the video clip above.
