    Umm, how, exactly? I put personality and how they treat you in front of most of the others, and as for looks - I can't go out with a guy who I don't find attractive.

    For me it would have to be:
    Personality
    How they treat me
    Education
    Looks
    Physique
    Money
    House and Car
    Social Class/Accent

    For guys: (though identical list for girls also)

    Important:
    Personality
    How they treat you
    compatable personalities
    Reasonable shared interests..

    Reasonably important
    Education (intelligence would be better, as I would never be put off by someone who hasnt been to university, as long as they are on a similar level of intelligence/intrests/ideas )
    Age (reasonably similar..)
    Money (not important yet. but the prospective of having money is important.. I do want a family, etc. and would prefer someone who I know can help financially/help provide, along with myself)

    Unimportant but would be a bonus..
    Looks
    Their house and car
    (will raise higher, once I graudate next year, and circumstance changes..)

    Utterly non-important:
    Their physique (excluding very extremes, e.g. hugely hugely overweight)
    Social Class and accent


    (worth noting any individual part, or multiple parts would be easily overlooked for the right person. )

    Physique surely has some impact in that though you're utterly unfussed about a conventionally good one if he's a 30 stoner you're going to be a bit put off?

    Ditto house, if he's got a reasonable amount of money but refuses to spend it on a house the fact he has it in the bank isn't going to be much comfort as you struggle to raise a family in a 1 bedder or get stuck in the catchment of an awful school.

    your right, I will add a disclaimer on physique, that unless its something very extreme, its un-important

    + house I guess is a bit more complicated.. if he has money, but wont contribute to us buying a nice house, for a family - then I would argue that it doesnt fit in with the 'treating me right' and 'compatiable personality'

    - though its hard to answer, as things like houses for now are un-important, but when I graduate in a year.. would be significantly higher up the priority order..

    Haha I just moved into my first non student house and me and my flatmate (who I was in houses with throughout uni too) keep wandering around going 'the living room's so big', '****inell this area's nice' and 'everything just...works!', seems ridiculous what we can get now we both work (though mine's only part time whilst I do post grad)!

    Women are hypergamous so will look for everything in a guy, naturally.

    I watched an episode of Bouncers last night and the girls seemed to go for the guys who could fight and also the big fat muscular ones. So yes, they go for muscular guys who get into fights.

    1) Personality
    2) How they treat me.
    3) Looks.
    4) Social class and accent
    5) Education
    6) Money
    7) Physique
    8) House and car

    The first two are by far the most important. Nothing after looks is particularly important for me and the last three are mostly interchangeable.
