To me, emotional intelligence is most attractive. It's great to be handsome, but its even more attractive to have a good spirit.
Some of the things that make up my typical week:
Work - I'm an administrative assistant, supporting a team of lawyers in the banking industry
Books - I'm in a book club, and am always trying to balance reading whatever book we have for the month, and my own personal reading.
Friends - I try to pack whatever free time I have by catching up with the important people in my life. I'm an "outgoing introvert," so I like meeting my friends one-on-one, and I like to meet a few people each week, maybe 2 or three outings, each with a different friend, just to catch up on their news, and be there if they need me.
Toastmasters - I'm a member and leading officer of a bi-weekly English/French toastmasters club. This is an organization for professional development in areas of public speaking and leadership. If I'm not at a meeting, then I'm probably planning for or thinking about the next one, or supporting new members.
Courses - I'm taking two night courses as part of a path to become a legal assistant
Gaming - when I finally get home at the end of a long day, I indulge in an hour, or even 2 hours of gaming before bed. This leaves my last activity, sleep, in some deprivation. I'm managing alright so far though (hooray for coffee!).
Right now, I'm here to meet people who have some depth. If you're someone who enjoys thinking, who can be brought to smile when you're alone just by your own thoughts, then that's a good thing. Do you enjoy a bit of introspection?
Just a wee bit of info I think is important: I don't want to hop into a relationship. I don't even want to hop into dating. Yes, those are eventual aspirations once I can identify the right person, but its not where I start. Hangouts are good. I'm the type who wants a life-long relationship with someone who is willing to work through good days and hard days together. That takes time to find, but I am fine with taking my time.
I like anything that tells me more about the human condition - things that other people experience, but I myself might not experience. For instance, I just read this awesome book called Still Alice about a lady who has early onset Alzheimer's. I think reading these kinds of things make us more aware of other people around us, not to mention, you feel like you're spending time in a beneficial way - even if it is leisure.
OK, most people do a list, so here goes.
music: Sarah Harmer, Jann Arden, Frou Frou/Imogen Heap, Kaskade, Coldplay, Ryan Farish, etc...
movies: Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Help, Queen Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Amélie, etc..
Shows: Torchwood, The Golden Girls, Drop Dead Diva, Fringe, The Vampire Diaries, etc...

How people tend to judge each other, on what basis, and what really matters.
Right and wrong, spirituality & God.
How to keep in touch with loved ones around me.
Some nights I go out with very small group of friends, and we might see a movie, have a meal, or shop, or just talk and laugh together.
