This is similar to the "What do 'nerdy' guys like in girls?" thread but I am making this bit generic.

I have come up with the following list of things which one might look for.

Culture
Ethnicity
Income
Interests
Profession
Sense of Humor
His/Her Opinions
Food Interests
Health
Age
His/Her relationship with the family

That could have come under sex life, but I wasn't thinking of sex when I made that poll I wouldve voted for that too!

Intelligence. Beauty. Integrity. That's most of it for me.

I suppose any and all of those things can be important to some degree or other. I am not much of a family person. It does not exactly matter to me if a woman does or does not have a good relationship with her family though the type of relationship she has with her family may be an important issue. If her family is more important to her than anything that could be troublesome especially if she feels that she (and by extension I) must always make her family happy then I do not think I could handle that.

You forgot the top two things I look for - intelligence and kindness.

I think you left out the most important quality - attraction.

This isn't a homework problem, and love is blind.

In my life, if the guy is intelligent, kind and has a great sense of humor, his apperance doesn't matter. I've dated mostly what my girlfriends considered very ugly men. I saw only a beautiful heart and mind. The biggest mistakes were the attractive men I dated.

Just to be clear, I meant attraction in the sense that you want to be with that person, not attractiveness.

My point was that falling in love isn't an engineering problem.

That is my concern.

It doesn't hurt to be smart, but you have to follow your heart.

And to the extent that you are guided by your head, and not your heart, make sure it's the right one!
