We are all looking for that one person to spend our life with. For me, I just want someone who is kind hearted, will have my back, and is willing to try new things with me. To get an idea of just how similar and different peoples preferences are I asked 40 people to describe their ideal significant other. The results ranged from what they were looking for in personality to their significant others ideal looks to lifestyle preferences.
Check out the compilation of results below:
Tall, blue eyes, freckles, athletic but musical and artistic.
Someone trustworthy, honest, and dependable. Who knows and accepts you as you are with all your faults and shortcomings but still appreciates the strengths you bring to the relationship without trying to change you.
Someone who will care about me as much as I care about them and will go out of their way to support me. And I could do the same for them.
Someone who cares for me and loves me more than anything else in this world. Someone who would make sacrifices for me since I know I would do the same thing for them.
Smart, attractive. Funny, quick-witted. Independent. Up to date on current topics. Lovable. Active. A leader. Big old titties.
Someone I can be myself around and can trust not to turn away for being too weird.
My ideal significant other would be a man that is caring, intelligent, tall, and most importantly family oriented. If he's handsome that would be a plus but honesty looks isn't everything's so someone who I can talk to easily isn't goofy at times and I think that's all.

... I love working, and my SO needs to be able to not just make time for me but my make time for my work. Ideally, he won't feel like he has to spend money on things for them to be nice. Ideally, my SO loves to just kick back and be a guy... I cook, he does the dishes... Ideally, I do the laundry, he makes the bed, and we both fold the clothes. Ideally, we both work from home because I'm most productive when I know he's right there and has my back.
