I value honesty, craftsmanship, patience, and enthusiasm. I really appreciate it when someone is very into something. This can be practically anything, even if it wouldn't normally interest me. Someone could be really into model trains, or possess an encyclopedic knowledge of textiles, and I would appreciate their dedication to something, no matter how mundane.
I don't want to come off as overly confrontational, but if you are only interested in someone who's in college, then that's definitely not me. I have been perfectly capable of educating myself.
