For me I'd have to say that looks can be about average but along the lines of looks, it's important to be the way the person presents themselves-class... takes care of themselves, etc. Also... intelligence, they dont have to be a genius, but i have to be able to have semi intelligent conversations with them about a vast range of different topics. It's defiantly good if they like to read and learn and are into learning new things. Honesty.... is VERY, VERY key for me. dont have to say too much about that. Politeness and respect.- yes, you need to tip well. yes, you need to be polite to old people, nice to animals, kids... courteous to people- nice to your mom, my mom, etc. NOT being obnoxious. Pet peeve. wont say any more. Forgiveness, understanding and loyalty.... because i return the same and expect nothing less. A good sense of humor... I CAN'T be with someone that i cant laugh with. and you cant take life too serious.... have to be able to joke about the bad things and be a bit sarcastic and silly at times. Thoughtfulness. surprizes... simple, every day ones.... are very, very nice. Someone that I dont always feel like i have to talk around. someone that let's things sometimes just BE.- there isnt always a need for words. someone that gives me my space to read, and things like that without feeling the need to talk to me constantly. someone who does not need to go out with their friends all the time without me. if im never invited, i wonder why..... has to have goals and be an adult and not act fifteen. its great to act silly and have fun but you know- i dont need someone who wishes they were still a teenager hmmm, yeah.... all i can think of right now.
