What are the qualities you consider to be the "total package" when dating?


So many people focus on appearance and exterior (style, clothing, or image) while failing to investigate the heart/beliefs of a man/woman. When considering a long term relationship the baby boomer generation had simple desires: is this a nice person, attractive, a person who cares for me and would make a good wife/husband. Now everyone is so focused on looks & image while disregarding substance. We see endless marriages and divorces that take place within 1 year because the relationships are superficially based. What qualities do you find valuable in a person for a long-term relationship?

    Very true! Everyone believes they have found their 'soul mate" during the "infatuation phase" of a new relationship. It's not until both people reveal their 'authentic selves" in stressful times that you'll know if you are right for one another.
