Common faults that mean men miss the mark included watching too much sport and poor personal grooming.
Bathroom habits such as leaving the toilet door open were also cited by women taking part in the survey as a frequent failing.
The poll of 2,000 women showed more than 75 per cent believed the perfect man did not exist.
Other shortcomings were an inability to multi-task, criticising their partner's driving and not getting along with her family.
Nikki McReynolds, marketing director for Remington which commissioned the research, said: "It seems that women are actually quite realistic on what they look for from their partner
"While they might happily overlook a few common flaws from their guys, there are certain behaviours that men just won't get away with."
The results showed one in five women think their partner only pretends to listen to them while leaving clothes on the bedroom floor and snoring were among other gripes.
The perfect man would be expected to make an effort with his partner's friends, avoid using her toothbrush, stay clean-shaven and not be lazy.
But above all, 35 per cent of women rate a good personality as most important with sense of humour the top quality for a quarter of respondents.

Men were not designed to “multi-task.” There’s a reason that God created men and women with different talents!
The retired Marine I work with claims he is still looking for that gorgeous, wealthy, nymphomaniac that owns a liquor store.
Guys are more practical. We look for "Miss Good Enough For Tonight".
Nobody is perfect. People who go through life expecting perfection in anyone will most likely be disappointed.
The poll is inherently flawed.
No one called my wife.
Mr. Perfect is gay.
Reading this article, I am reminded why British men tend to be regarded as poofters.
“OMG! He left his clothes on the floor!!” “Sorry, Dear....”
I believe your retired Maine friend forgot to add the following: “and has a Class III license”.
“Common faults that mean men miss the mark included watching too much sport and poor personal grooming.”
How many of these “common faults” arise when the man realizes he can do no right?
“The poll of 2,000 women showed more than 75 per cent believed the perfect man did not exist.”
There was one once, but He got nailed to a cross....
Mr. Right does exist, and his first name is Always.
Lol. That one makes me laugh every time!
I have my Mr. Right. I don’t care if he snores or leaves up the seat. He makes me smile. We’ve been through a couple of really tough years financially and are just getting back on our feet, but he can always make me smile, no matter how bad things were.
He makes me smile - he’s my Mr. Right.
