If this is just for general admiration, it would be someone who is kind without looking at others’ social standing, respect everyone, have a sense of justice, hardworking, knowledgeable and have opinions on most of the things, hold on to their principles and takes care of him/herself.
But if you are talking about someone whom I would be able to see myself settling down with (you know what I mean), in addition to the above, the person must be serious yet fun, independent, can and be willing to talk about anything with me, respecting my privacy (and my insecurities and my interests and my independence as a result of three years growing up in an all-girls school and my moodiness and maybe my high maintenance level LOL), able to be himself when he is around me, able to make me be myself when I am around him and willing to fight for us and for other things that are right. Kindly refer to this post for more information =)
I will repeat that he must be able to take care of himself. One, I still believe physical attraction is important, though not the first once we have settled down. Two, I tend to lose respect to someone, in this case would be a guy, who cannot even keep himself presentable and just appear sloppily and whatever in front of others. I think this is disrespectful to others who have made effort to see you or to make a dress code.
Of course he must not be an abuser, psychologically unstable and even worse, a psychopath.
Also, definitely Christian who love God with all his heart (and by this I am not saying someone who reads Bible or religious books everytime, and even, makes sessions to discuss these books for a
date courtship whatever you would like to say it as the latter just screamed Shakespeare to me. Being socially and culturally aware are important for me). It was only two days ago when I said this: Don’t play with fire if you don’t want to get burnt.
Plus.. preferably in the same race and similar socio-economic class as mine. Can find a common place for us to settle down.
Oh yeah, and see me as his equal, not his subordinate.
