The qualities I found in my wife:

• Interested in me as a person, and not as a possessor of wealth and property.

• At least as intelligent and educated as I am.

• Kindness, compassion, and understanding.

• Good-looking in a healthy sort of way.

1. Extremely high sex drive

2. Loves to travel

3. Adventurous

4. Not a political extremist (I am a centrist, but will consider anything from a Bush-McCain-Romney Republican to Biden-Kennedy-FDR Democrat. Basically, no MAGAs or far-leftists)

5. No religious extremists (could interfere with item #1)

6. Independent and goal-oriented, loyal, affectionate

If you are looking for an NT partner then tolerance, compassion and flexibility are important traits.

I like older, fat men. Yes, it's true. I just find it attractive. My boyfriend is 20+ years older than me and he's fat and balding. He also has a cute face, which attracted me first.
I like shy men too. My boyfriend was shy when I first knew him, and his self-esteem isn't that high. I'm good at making people with low self-esteem feel better about themselves (even though I have low self-esteem myself).

I also like a man who has been treated poorly by women in the past, like my boyfriend was, because they tend to appreciate your honesty and your love, and if you're the sort of person he can trust, it makes both of you feel good. I wouldn't want to be like the mean women that treated him badly, so I'd never cheat on him or walk away from the relationship. I want to be there for him, forever (meaning for the rest of his life). Sometimes when he feels happy and loved, I feel happy too, for making a person I love feel happy.

My love for my boyfriend has become unconditional, meaning we have become soulmates and no matter how anxious or angry I get when he's drunk, I still couldn't imagine life without him.

Well, according to my current fwb crush, anyways.
