    What are some essential qualities to look for in your ideal or potential mate?

    Someone you can accept for who they are and who accepts you.  Make sure the person makes you laugh, too.  If you are looking at the person's looks, chances are the person is very proud of those looks, too, which can get in the way of loving unconditionally.  (That is a "sometime it can happen that way" statement.)

    I feel that if a man treats his mother well and respects her, he will most likely treat me the same way. That is one thing I have noticed in past relationships. I've dated men that didn't think that much of there mothers and seemed to have passed that same anger out to me. When I met my husband the most attractive thing about him was his love for his mother and his love for children. We've been together for 8 happy years.

    I think honesty is the best quality that you should base a relationship on.

    While some people still think opposites attract, I think it is a moronic premise and the perfect ingredients to have confusion and chaos in the home all of the time. I think two people should have common interests, ideal, values, and ethics. While that might be boring for some, I really adore peace and quiet. When the house is peaceful there is more time for intimacy instead of angry make up sex. Who invented that lunacy anyway?

    1.  She must be a 110% hottie, something I can show off to all my friends to, (meaning, that is right, I am hitting that, not out of my league, but out of all you guys' league)

    2.  She must be logical and think with a clear head (I can't stand emotional charged people, they drive me nuts with their irrationality)

    3.  She must be a good wife, good mother and a good girl friend. 

    4.  To avoid ever having to pay alimony in a divorce, she must make slightly a bit more money then I do, but not too much.  Because, if you take the alimony law away, I don't like girls that make more money then me. (But like hell, I would or want to, take her money in a divorce.)

    5.  She must be somebody I can enjoy spending time with, enough.

    Honesty, integrity, the ability to communicate (well and often), trust, love, is fun to be around but can also be serious, cries during touching or emotional movies and shows, health conscious, and is complementary.

    Assertiveness, compassion, the ability to articulate what they think and feel, intelligence, cleanliness, the ability to be organized (but not on an OCD level), and a great sense of humor.

    It will be ideal in these conditions:

    1. A person who will put you as first place when you need help.
    2. Sharing with you the joys and sadness.
    3. Know what are your liking and dislikes.
    4. Do things for you without needing to ask.

    That is what I will do for my mate and she enjoys it very much. So I guess it will be something where partner will look for.

    Honest & Humble. A couple should complement each other; one partner's weakness should be the other partner's strength. However, both people in a relationship should share the same values and belief system.

    Well, someone who accepts me as I am and respect me for who I am. Someone who is caring and down to earth, a God fearing person. Someone who shares the same values and interests
