    I can't deduce true love to 5 things. In fact it's one thing and that's respect. All the rest will fall in place, or not.
    so a big ****?!

    1-5, 1 being most important, 5 least.

    1. Religion (must be catholic)
    2. Political stance
    3. Can communicate
    4. Her job (what type of job is it)
    5.

    So what would your list be?
    1. Personality & looks
    2. Religion (Catholic/Anglican)
    3. Political stance - needs to be Labour!
    4. His job - must be accomplished! I wouldn't date someone like a bartender/newspaper boy/florist even if they were really successful... Cooks/engineers/lawyers/musicians/sports stars/models/authors/politicians all cool even though their income is unpredictable & job-dependency isn't all that great - I guess I like the passionate creative's more!
    5. Communication - this isn't all that huge! I'm sure we could chat nicely even if he was too reserved! :yep:

    Fairly straightforward really ......

    1. Pretty - physical attraction has to be there to begin with.
    2. Friendly - must be pleasant talk to, smile and make me feel comfortable.
    3. Fun - to have a good time when we're out together.
    4. Honest - I hate people who purposely avoid telling the truth.
    5. Loving - no point being with someone who isn't passionate!

    Selflessness
    Good at making cups of tea
    Fun to be with, cannot get bored of

    And for anyone who says things like "similar interests", that doesn't really prevent you from having a stable relationship at all - individuality is not a threat to stable relationships. Same with music tastes and political views.

    Religion is a difficult one because it uses time and conflicts may arise with kids.

    Also, I wouldn't mind if someone had different political views. I would want someone intellectual who can give solid reasons explaining their stance, and not just "my parents vote for them" or "conservatives only help the rich" - two big turn-offs

    1. She will go out with me willingly. This is quite important.

    I'll figure the other 4 out later when the time comes.

    1. Political stance including ethical views and moral values. I am a very opinionated person who cannot loose an argument- I couldn't date a lefty!
    2. Intelligence and motivation. I have to be able to have an intellectual discussion with a guy, and he also has to be driven to have a fulfilling career.
    3. Humour!
    4. Looks
    5. Upbringing & social background. I know it sounds awful but I find it easier to relate to people who have had a similar upbringing to myself. I would rather date an only child for example, as I'd feel we had shared a common experience through out our lives.

    Personicity
    A face
    Not an insufferable know-it-all
    Doesn't drink too much
    Musical skills is always a bonus
    Horribly insensitive to those without a face, you know.
