Here is what would turn my head.
- Be funny without being mean.
- Be positive. I don’t want to be drawn up into someone’s problems.
- Have a job.
- Don’t be a phony.
- Find out if we have common interests–if we don’t, don’t think it will work out…we both need to move on so we can meet someone appropriate.
- Be well-groomed.
- Don’t always steer the conversation toward yourself.
“Predictable, really I suppose. It was an act of purest optimism to have posed the question in the first place.” --John Cleese
