The most important quality in a partner for me is manners. I believe in being respectful of all people and having class. I like the company of intellectuals, but a good attitude means more to me. I'd rather be around someone who's favorite movie is DUMB AND DUMBER yet is a genuine, sincere person than someone who is well versed in 1930's French cinema but is rude and obnoxious.
I also like people who listen, communicate, and know what they want out of life. I dislike flakey or scatterbrained people who don't know how to communicate and are inconsiderate of others. I hope to have seen the last of that breed.
