    Honesty and integrity are at the top of my list.  Looks do not make a person.  True beauty comes from within.

    Someone that loves and likes someone for who they are and value their good qualities and can see pass the bad ones.

    They have to have a good sense of humor, rockin' personality.
    Kind, loving, and above all, understanding.

    I would have to say that trust is high on the list of the best qualities in a person.  I also look for integrity, loyalty, a positive attitude, plenty of humor, forgiveness, compassion and consideration. Loving animals and respecting the rights and beliefs of others are also on my list.

    Honesty, honor, creativity, ambition, tolerance, and of course a great sense of humor.

    Honesty, Integrity, Compassion, Empathy

    The most important is to be able to express love, both in intimate relationships and the type of universal love we should all have for all of humanity.

    I agree with THEuG5 that a sense of humor is also a great one!

    I think someone with a sense of humor about themselves and life in general is a fun person to be around. I also like people who have a deep care and concern for helping others. So, to me, someone that I would respect the most would be someone who tries to help others in any way that they can.

    The best qualities in a person is kindness,  unselfishness and empathy with  the desire to place more emphasis on satisfying the partner than themselves.

    Most people are saying good answers, compassion and honesty come to mind. Aside from the usual I think a real sense of daring and adventure, a willingness to help someone out, even if it is a stranger and go to great lengths simply to help someone else. I think a willingness to help someone in need, even when they don't ask for the help, or even if they say they don't want the help, is a great thing.

    Another great quality is actually to be naive somewhat, and to not have to worry about every single dark, evil, and negative thing happening in the world.

    Being honest with you and more importantly themselves.  Knowing who they really are and being confident about it.

    Their Smile, you can always tell a sincere person by their smile (well sometimes).  Great sense of humor, sincereity, consistency, loyalty, honesty, dedication, and if you can trust and depend on them.  As I'm writing this the word realistic, be realistic keeps coming to mind, I wonder why!

    There several qualites that I believe are great. Writing them down would at least take two paragraphs but I'll list my top 5.

    Strong will, good heart, and the willingness and ability to act when it's necessary. Do we really need more than that?

    A loving person possesses these tentacles of love such as; kindness, goodness, patience, understanding, forgiving, honest, friendly and so on and so forth..

    Rationality and empathy are the two most important aspects.  A person needs to be able to think through situations, but also have a merciful side that will understand another person's suffering.  Too much of one creates a misanthrope, too much the other becomes a martyr, so the balance is very important.

    Honesty, sense of humor, honor and loyalty. The last one weighs heavy with me as I have had friends over time that seem very loyal but turn out not to be but a few who stick by you no matter what.
