Let me get back to the subject of the thread.

I'm a 22/male and this is what I'm looking for, or should I say...already found in a woman:
1)Sense of humor is the most valuable trait. Without the ability to laugh, the relationship will never last and you will both pray for the other to break up with YOU, before you have to do it yourself.
2)Sexy/Attractive: some people say that they are synominous, but I want both. If you are truly attracted to a sexy partner, then you'll have the physically aspects in check.
3)Intellegence without being a pompus, pretenious snob. I've know a few of these people, and while they might be attractive and intellegent, they were meanspirited and full of themselves.
4)They must tolerate my wacky sense of humor. I can be very weird and annoying, so the girl MUST be cool with my sense of humor

Intelligence is a huge criteria for me, but you are so right on Danospano! No pretentious snobs for me!

I don't believe in the perfect person. There is no such thing. Fact is, I could never hope to live up to some of the ideals listed in this thread. Would mildly funny and intelligent, depressive, basically-good-but-never-does-much-about-it, sleeps in too often but never forgets anything do?

You bring up a good point...how many of us are willing to try to BE the kind of person we seek in another?

The perfect woman for me is...

a)The accent of Emma Thompson.
b)The physical appearance of a young Vanessa Redgrave AND the voice...
c)A gentle, passionate and truly GOOD personality. With a biting sense of witty humour.

Aaaah... the sad truth is I DID have a woman like that.

great sense of humour
someone i can laugh with
smart but not a smarty pants
kind hearted
SOmeone who loves music and literature
stands up for their opinions and is passionate about them
affectionate but not over bearing
someone who cares enough to want to know the real me
loyal
knows that Im there for him when times are bad and can ask me for help if he needs it
sensitive but not a sap
i like a man who is a real man. none of these wimpy skinny boys. Any boy who wears a smaller shoe size than me, i think not.
Nice strong arms.
A boy who isn't afraid to be loved.

Not essential, but writers and musicians make me swoon.

There are just too many variables for me to really accurately describe the perfect person for me. I don't even know if there is one specific perfect type of person for me. I think timing has a lot to do with whether a person is perfect for you. The big thing is that they have to make me feel completely comfortable being myself - not who I might want people to think I am, not what I'm trying to be, but my true self.

Also, I think it needs to be someone who realizes that love is not just that wonderful head-in-the-clouds all-is-wonderful feeling but a commitment and willingness to work at the relationship, "in good times and in bad" as the saying goes.

I guess all the other details stem from that. Generally the (very few) people who have made me feel that comfort with myself share the traits that others have spoken of here - a genuinely kind and thoughtful disposition, a good sense of humor, good intelligence (without flaunting it), a strong appreciation for music and the arts, the ability to be happy spending a quiet night in or a fun night on the town, someone who can be serious and a goofball, etc, etc. Oh, and an adventurous romantic spirit is definitely a big plus. But these are all definitely not set in stone - who knows, maybe there's a person out there with a few surprising traits I never thought I'd appreciate, who turns out to be the one for me. I suppose I'll know when I get that feeling - you know, not just the "I'm so happy I grin at the slightest little thing" one but the one that realizes that there could be a real future and that I'm not afraid to pursue it.

Anyway, enough of my rambling.

Wow that was quite a read, thanks for sharing guys. I'm glad the topic got back on track. I learn so much from you people. Always food for thought and in amongst it, encouragement.
Main thing I'd hope for is a gentle man.
Your point about are we prepared to live up to our own ideals,is very very true.

PS: if we are just talking "person" rather than sexual attraction...now how can i say this after using that phrase?

Most wonderful person I have met so far is my childhood Sunday School teacher. She seems the perfect person to me.
