Support/Compassion: If I’m going through shit or my partner/friend is, I want to know that I can rely on them to help me and I want to be able to reliably help them. Without that support and understanding the relationship is pointless
Intelligent Discussion: Whether it be politics, philosophy, science, or just general life, and whether it be conversation, debate, or just mutual agreement I need someone who is willing to discuss ideas, and if necessary, debate them. I’d rather have a relationship with someone who disagrees with me and is ready to present a good argument than someone who just agrees with everything I say no matter what they actually believe.
Openness: I like people who are open, eccentric, quirky, and interested in expanding their horizons. The status quo can get boring pretty quick so I want a partner who always keeps me on my toes, and one who is okay with me doing the same. Honesty is also a big part of this. I HATE being lied to, especially about big things. If I can’t trust someone then I can’t have a relationship with them, plain and simple.
Humor: Goes as part of openness I suppose, but yeah, definitely need a good sense of humor
A few other things here obviously, but those are the main ones
