What makes you like someone?
When you meet someone for the first time, what makes you friends? What makes you want to know them more?
Their kind personality. I don't like rude people. I know we all have bad days, but if a person shows they have a good heart first off, they makes you want to get to know that person more.
I like someone who is kind, considerate, warm, honest and treat other people like human beings. I don't like people who are fake.
Pleasant people are likable. The same applies to happy people. Smartness and general charm can make you like somebody. Intelligent people make many friends. Friendly people are likable. Helpful and considerate individuals attract friends.
I have seen a person attract another one just because they happen to be different or unique. Extraordinary individuals catch many eyes. Strong people offer comfort hence tend to be likable. Cleanliness attracts.
A social person attracts attention. Optimistic people attract our attention too. Hopeful people draw you closer to them. The same applies to those who are knowledgeable etc, etc, etc
I would look at their habits and for me first impressions often tell what I need to know about a person. They way they project themselves in conversation and how they show their friendliness. Someone who is direct and who are sure of themselves is a kind of person one can like easily. A person who likes to hear a joke and has a friendly smile. An instant connection is felt when talking is a great sign.
A friendly person who cares about others and shows kindness to both animals and humans is my kind of people. If they have a special talent with an interesting story to tell, I want to know more about them.
someone who is honest and a good communicator who listens as much as they talk. Someone who comes to the aid of their friends, I don't mean monetary aid, when they are in need.
It helps if they are educated to the extent that they have some knowledge of the world around them, they don't have to be worldly or traveled just aware and open to conversation. They must have an open mind and the sense to know that if there is a subject that they can't have an open mind about it should be avoided.
It helps if they aren't gullible.
For all of the obvious reasons each one of you have mentioned, I find I also am drawn to those who are good parents. Recently, I was having a conversation with my 13 y/o daughter about sarcasm (don't like) and it made me think of this question.
Generally, if from the start I like his or her company, especially a conversation about our mutual interests, I want to be friends.
Good answer. Just curious though - What makes you like them from "the start"?
BuffaloGal, that's a good question. Sorry for the delay in answering. If a person smiles, seems easy-going, looks approachable, and makes eye contact I like him or her.
It's a deep one is this. It's people's eyes that attract me- you can tell a lot from looking into someone's eyes. And faces- I love to look at people's faces and wonder how each etched line got there. If some are the same as mine, there is empathy, knowing that they must, in some part, have gone through the same things as me, feel things the same as me
People's hands attract me too- the beautiful well cared for ones, the work worn wrinkled ones, the calloused dirty working men's ones- they're all beautiful to me and fascinate me.
Singing - four part or more harmony - now that is incredibly attractive. You can feel people's souls when they sing
Oh, my Pauline. I so agree. I've written some songs and I call the front cover of the book "Windows to my Soul" because they truly are. Eyes. Yes. The eyes. It's interesting that so many have answered, all with different answers but all so correct!

Inspired by the question is your glass half empty or half full and irked by many attitudes in general, the question or whether or not negative people (people who see the worst or can not promote anything nice to say) attract negative attention?

Because if it doesn't, why do we keep making choices that will label us victims?
