Um...do you make a list of traits someone has and then add then up to see whether you love them?
Cause, I don't. As a result I don't have a list of "reasons" for loving someone. It is their personality as a whole that is appealing and compatible, or not. There are specific things that often make someone...harder to love, though.
I basically agree with what has been said as well. It's a good thing we reached a consensus in our pre-post ISTP huddle. (oops, said too much)
I don't really have any good reasons I went steady with the people I did. I do have definate reasons why the relationships ended, though I always felt badly afterwards as though there was something I had not done to keep things rolling.
I like being in relationships, things just seem to go smoother and more comfortable in life if you've somebody along with you.

And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
People who are too different make my hair stand on end. They end up annoying me more than anything.... And people who are too similar - they're boring! They're just like me!
Sometimes it's just 'cause the person is nice to me...uh, but not too nice. I don't want a doormat. Someone who shows a genuine interest in me and in my well being. I like spontaneity. Someone who can keep a conversation going, but who can also enjoy quiet time around me. I like thinkers. A sense of humor is a must!
This certainly isn't a comprehensive list, but they are things I value in a partner.
Having said that and now having thought about it more, I still stand by it, but I'll add that if I could create a person, I'd never know what combination of traits I'd like best. I definitely couldn't put it all in a formula and crank out perfect people for me.
