    What is the one thing that attracts you to someone as a potential partner?

    Whether you are single or taken, what is the one thing that attracts you to someone else? Something physical? The way they talk, dance, or sing?

    If I had to narrow it down to (one) thing it would be they want the same things I do!
    There is no amount of "communication" or "work" that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want.
    'Opposites attract divorce attorneys!" lol!

      Yeah, whoever said opposites attract must not have been with someone very opposite of themselves.

    A person's personality is what attracts me.  I can generally tell, as soon as they open their mouth and start to talk, what kind of person I'm talking to.  I can usually tell if there's honesty there, or if they're just putting me on. 

    Watching the eyes is also a dead give away for me.  Eyes move differently and say different things and can actually tell you if their words are filled with truth or lies. 

    I think the main thing is to not be intimidated my that person.  If, for instance, you allow his good looks to persuade you to believe exactly what he says because he's cute, you won't know what he's really like.  I think it's best to be open and calm, so that you can just "feel" what that person is really like, in his heart.  At least, that's the way it works for me...

    Intelligence. But it has to be done with certain style. If they flaunt it and criticize others for lack of knowledge, they are foolish from lack of emotional intelligence. Every time my husband goes into detail over a subject I know little about, I can't help but drag him to bed.

    I think smile constitutes the most important part. This is the first and the last gesture for attraction.

    dashingscorpio already chose my answer. Someone who rows in the same direction.  Everything else can fail if you don't.

    So right even if one is take they can still be attracted to another and the one thing I would be attracted to in someone else is their character in  how they project themselves when speaking body language.

    Talent, charisma and integrity are very important. Mostly someone who is compassionate and helps others.
