  1. Of the preferred traits - tall, dark and handsome - no two of Adam, Boyd, Cary and Dirk have the same number.
  2. Only one of Adam or Dirk is tall and fair.
  3. Only one of Boyd or Cary is short and handsome.
  4. Adam and Cary are either both tall or both short.
  5. Boyd and Dirk are either both dark or both fair.
Who is tall, dark and handsome?

I believe there are 2 valid solutions: 
it is either Cary (all the traits), Dirk(none) or
Dirk (all the traits), Adam(none).

Vera - you still have 2 choices..

Being human, I stopped when one solution was found, no reason for program to act like that.

In puzzles like this I  usually assume a solution
 and when facing a contradiction go to the  next candidate.
Here  I have chosen Adam as a perfect match, then Boyd .
Finding Cury  - no chance  was given  to Dirk.
