    accepting me for who i am- i can't be changed.

    That pretty much sums up what I value too.

    Except I would add that I most want someone who is stable emotionally and safe. I have enough crazy emotions for the both us lol one of us has to be the sensible one.

    • Having their sh*t together (financially, mentally, emotionally)
    • Reliability (as opposed to being disposed to changing their mind last minute)
    • Being "real" (not disposed to embellishing their sentiments)
    • Responsibility
    • Self-discipline
    • Accountability


    I like this list quite a lot. I think all listed are very admirable things, and all are important, but I highlighted the ones that really stood out for me (and tie 'responsibility' to accountability, fwiw).

    In all of my relationships, platonic and romantic alike, these are also needed:
    *A good heart. (vague, yes, but really, just someone who is a genuinely good person. Perhaps a certain innocence. Not angsty and vindictive by nature. A humble strength/solidity?? Respectful and kind to others.*This extends to the animal kingdom as well.
    *Someone who thinks for themselves and is perhaps a bit eccentric and walks a unique path (this isn't totally necessary for friends, but my *closest* friends all tend to share this trait).
    *A wide lens in viewing life and the world. Desire to travel and to expand their horizons and bring/incorporate the rest of the world into their own views.
    * And I think it goes without saying that I value being accepted. ;-)


    Romantic:
    *Affection. I need it.
    *Passion/chemistry. I think the presence of it is what distinguishes it from purely platonic.
    *Similar 'place' in life, and heading in a similar direction in life, with similar goals. Otherwise it wouldn't be much of a shared journey, which is another thing that I think would be required in a LTR.
    *A good balance/respect for being two individuals, and needing that space and time with self and other friends, but also time together. Balance of independence but desire/choice to be together as well.
    *A more optimistic, glass-half-full outlook. I've been with glass-half-empty guys, and too much of that cynicism is downright annoying.

    Do you think I am picky enough??

    Faithfulness above all, I've been burned before and never quite recovered.
    Then comes love for the abstract, which goes with trying to understand what I'm saying and me in general. I like to feel like she truly takes an interest in me because I will be fulfilling my half of the agreement. The most attractive thing to me in the world though is intelligence. Unfortunately, I do not base my relationships on what is the most attractive thing to me. I must first know she can be trusted deeply. We have to be working toward similar goals, which in themselves are abstract. Finding ourselves and each other, and not taking the world for granted but trying to uncover all that we can instead.

    I know a girl who fits all of these descriptions, she's far smarter than I could ever be, an INFP, and we can shoot philosophy around all day. I have not ever been nor will I ever be attracted to her physically. So I hang out with her nearly everyday reaping all of the benefits of a good relationship without the intimacy. I feel she is getting the short end of the stick. I could probably marry her, or at least live with her forever peacefully, but physical attraction is a factor for me, (though less important than others, it must at least be present to some degree!) regardless of whether or not I like to accept that.

    #1.- Quality of his heart- Is he truly a kind person, at heart??

    2. The way they treat others? Are they the domineering/condescending types? If so, I step AWAY. Are they they harmonious, laid-back, respectful/all around fun to be around with? If so, that's my kind of person.

    3. Are they a leader or a follower? Can they think for themselves? Or are they a crowd-pleaser (the type who will do things to impress the group- even if it's at the expense of endangering themselves, others or making someone else feel bad)?

    4. Are they authentic/true to themselves? Especially in their endeavors in life. I don't want a guy who listens to his mommy or daddy just because. I want a guy who knows what really makes him happy in life/goes for it. He's his OWN person.

    5. Are they content with being who they are?

    Other values for me- family- if they love their family, political (if we're on the same spectrum), social- how they treat others, if they act in accordance to their own values- 'Golden Rule.'

    I have trouble making lists of things I like... esp in relationships. If someone is interesting to me it will negate things I thought I didn't like. I try to stay away from the 'bad' kind of interesting i.e. crazy. And I don't like high-drama (for drama's sake) or manipulative people. I do very much enjoy someone who:


    • is imaginative,
    • enjoys abstraction,
    • has long timelines or appreciates mine. i.e. someone who isn't going to 'rain on my parade' if I'm working towards something that may not materialize for a while,
    • is non-controlling,
    • is accepting of me. I can handle criticism but I don't want to be someone's project,
    • is affectionate in some way, preferably physically and able to accept affection from me. I like regular hugs and hand-holding more than regularly talking about my deepest feelings for them,
    • is only into me. I won't jump through hoops or compete for someone, neither would I do that to anyone,
    • is sexually compatible, yes very important.

    You people have long lists... Don't you think that maybe it makes you very critical or narrow-minded?

    This is not directed to anyone, just something that popped in my mind. I dunno, it's just that I guess I wouldn't want to think that when I meet someone they're seeing if I match all of their list or not. You know, people are different and sometimes even the imperfect folks are great

    No.

    ..
    >.o Okay, silly aside.. I don't think it makes someone narrow-minded to identify what made them unhappy in previous relationships, and look for those tell-tale signs in future ones. While I don't approach ANY relationship list in hand, I'm definitely better at seeing what I do like, and ignoring what I don't.. that causes problems later on.. sometimes it's good to have that little list in hand to remind myself of what I really want later on, not just right now.

    Very much so. .. Groceries, you walk down an aisle of packages, knowing exactly what you're getting, and choose exactly what you want.

    I have to approach a guy one at a time, figure him out, decide if this is what I want, and take it or leave it without ever knowing what other products are available.

    Grocery shopping is way easier.
