We all have our own preferences when it comes to what we want and like. I hate smokers I absolutely hate them. Yes, I have dated a few smokers, and just nope never again. I thought maybe I could handle it but nope just turns me off. I perfer a guy who is taller than me, I have dated a few who were my height or shorter in the past. It depends on the person and some look good with a beard, or clean shaven. Personality wise I perfew someone outgoing, and laid back more. Someone who is independent and responsible also a more home body than say a partier. Someone who can just sit back and listen to me rant, and understand when I dont want to talk. But also allowing me to still be independent, and responsible for myself (I hold my end of the deal, and support myself). Also, accepts my animals which seems to be the one no guy can handle. Ive daated a few guys and Im not picky (to be honest) but just seem like they want a girl that is dependent on them, and useless who dont have dreams or goals. Also, want me to get rid of my animals because they dont like them.

Yeah the animals are usually a deal breaker for me I have hit it off really well with a few guys then find out they are allergic to cat well scratch that idea then no point in continuing I also can not stand guys who make jokes about my bunny or pig in reference to ratting them this drives me insane and although I know it's a joke I do not find it funny at all and usually will not talk to them again

Exactly! When I first brought Patches & Stripes home I started dating a guy. He said I was wasting my money, and they arnt my children so stop acting like they are. He was gone right away, and I just ignored him. He couldnt figure out why and I told him off. If they cant accept my animals they wont accept me. Thats true it may be a joke but deep down it shows you how they truely feel. I find younger guys are like this and which is why I usually date older guys they seem to have their head on straighter (not saying they do), and accept things more. My friend was actually joking with me the other night saying how Ill never get a guy if I keep putting my pets first. But I think with time Ill find a guy who is willing to accept them, and treat them the same way. When I use to work at Timmies I use to have guys asking me out all the time, until they found out I had cats at the time. I just htought it was funny, its like saying I have a child.

i have found my partner in life. she is the one that i have been looking for. we are now married. she is beautifully simple in her own style. she knows what she wants and she works with her interest and advocacies. now what i am not attracted to a woman is her illogical whims just to satisfy herself, and without consideration of her man.

I cant stand anyone who thinks of just themselves and their needs or wants. I know many both male and females who are like this. Ive dated a few and thats why our relationships didnt end up working out.

I like a guy who is smart, good looking, and who has the sense of humor. I like those persons who make me feel comfortable in their presence, though we do not know each other for long. I try to avoid men who drink a lot, who are violent and careless. What I also like in a man is the feeling of security and protection he gives.

What do I look for a partner is someone who can understand me and support my hobbies (I mean will not restrict me from my passion) because i think it is important to have someone who dont forbid me from the thing i like, to stop me from my passion is like to stop me from being myself and I dont like not to be myself. I used to say that i dont want to date a smoker, a guy who has long hair, someone who is much older than me, but when the love comes I think it doesnt matter anymore. I know its hard for a smoker to stop smoking in a day, but at least the man must respect me and not smoking around me. Im looking someone who is beautiful inside not outside, someone who has attitude, someone who is smart he doesnt have to have IQ as einsten but as a smart man whom I can talk to. Im avoiding guys who cannot control their temper and guys who are too selfish and too arrogant to admit their mistakes.

What I look for in a partner is the comfort that I have with him. I mean, if I am comfortable in talking to him, doing things with him, stuff like that. What I look for the most is the company of each other, because if you enjoy each other, then the rest would follow. What I try to avoid is if there really is no spark. I mean you'd know from the get go if there's something there, if there's nothing then I just don't keep the person hanging.
