Sci-fi Online recently caught up with two of the future's
sexiest women to see what they look for in a man. Read the
following interview and see if you have what it takes to date
Leela and Amy from Futurama...
characteristics do you look for in a man?
The most important thing is a sense of humour. For example,
doctors have a great sense of humour, as do investment bankers,
senators, and heirs to the British crown.
has to appreciate my cuteness and emotionality and not get
all weird because my parents own half of Mars. I guess every
girl faces that problem. What, they don't? Shploops!
are men of the future intimidated by your intelligence and
the contrary, I'm able to fool myself into thinking they find
how about your freakishly large single eye?
They aren't really intimidated, but sometimes they vomit a
Leela, what advice would you give women
on how to handle romantic advances in the workplace? For example,
what do you do when your co-worker Fry hits on you?
try not to get mad at Fry, because it's not really his fault.
As a primitive 20th century man, he still thinks with his
you-know-what. His brain. Luckily, ever since the Equal Rights
Amendment finally got passed in 2850, men have their thoughts
beamed to them from a central femputer. Yep, that's what happens
when women get equal rights. Next question.
we've heard of all the games that go on in the dating world.
Do you think these help or hurt the dating process?
are excellent for dating. For example, a typical game is telling
your boyfriend you want to see other people. So then he says,
"Spleesh, then I want to see other people too." And then you
both have a lot more dating of other people!
do you think dating games make it easier or harder to have
you really loved me, you'd already know what I think.
you please describe for us your dream man?
My dream man would be green and squishy, with fluid-filled
bladders instead of bones and a wonderfully kissable lipless
beak. And I'm so lucky because that's my real boyfriend, Kif!
He'd come from the stars, tall and strong, with a gleam in
his freakishly large single eye and a great sense of humour
consisting of 30 percent bonds, 70 percent stocks.
as a cute, young university student and Planet Express intern,
how do you find the dating world treating you?
an intern is great for dating! I can't tell you how many guys
have said, "So, you're an intern. How fascinating. Why don't
we go back to my place and you can tell me all about it?"
what do you think are the best ways to attract your ideal
it helps to hang out with someone less attractive, so you'll
look better by comparison. By the way, Leela, see you at the
you're a couple of years older than Amy. As a result, do you
see much difference in the types of men you each prefer as
well as how you are treated by men?
is just a matter of perspective. For example, in Jupiter years,
Amy and I are actually the same age -- two. So we're much
too young to be dating anyway, which is why I don't have a
