My Ideal Match:
My type of woman I want for my future the most important qualities in a potential partner, kindness, physical attractiveness, an exciting personality, and income/earning potential tend to top the list. But once you're actually involved in a relationship, some of these traits become more important than others. I think that whose partners meet their ideals in terms of warmth and loyalty are more satisfied with their relationships. Having a partner who meets one's ideals in terms of physical attractiveness, excitement, status, and wealth, on the other hand, is much less correlated with overall satisfaction. If a person I meet that having a partner who fell short on attractiveness, status, and excitement did not affect satisfaction if that partner was also highly warm, kind, and loyal. My values are very important to me, those more "superficial' traits were not important at all for those whose partners were kind, understanding, and loyal.
