What do you like in a person? (friendship or relationship) watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am well aware similar threads exist, I just wanted to make my own

    Just a thought which passed through my mind - what do I like about people?

    The most important thing for me is humour. Without it, there is no point in a conversation for me. Also, from a relationship standpoint, looks are fairly important, although they are far from the top of my list if you can make a decent joke.

    Id love to hear what you like in a person in either context, and throw in some mentions for those on TSR who fit the description

    Nice eyes

    Pretty much the same goes for a relationship and a friendship, except that in a relationship I'd have to find them both physically and sexually attractive.

    A good sense of humour that fits in with mine, kindness, being relatively open minded, easygoing, ambition.

    Friends - someone who's chatty. I find it hard to begin conversations that don't just dry out, so having someone who does that first will then get me to open up too. Someone with a sense of humour, preferably more of an introvert and who shares the same kind of thoughts as me.

    Relationship - sense of humour is a must, then attraction too. They need to be trustworthy and someone who gets me out of my comfort zone a little bit, encourages me to do new things.

    The same stupid sense of humour as me. I make so many stupid jokes throughout the day and having someone who would actually laugh at them with me would be absolutely fantastic.

    For friendships definitely someone with a sense of humor, positive, outgoing, adventurous, honest and are good listeners and can give good reasonable advice

    For relationships, well someone who is honest, trustworthy, great sense of humor, dirty, kind but not a doormat, strong, a great listener, positive thinking, motivated, adventurous, sensual and romantic, and just a great person overall.
