Singles Reveal The One Quality They're Looking For In A Significant Other

We all can imagine our perfect match, but what makes them so perfect and dreamy? Everyone is has different tastes in what they like in a partner, but some traits have a unanimous vote.

saminthetardis asks:

What is the one quality you MUST have in a significant other?

Maturity is a must

The ability to convey feelings and resentments maturely. Things don't always have to go perfectly, but when they don't I want someone who's willing to work with me to figure it out.

Laughter is an amazing tool

A sense of humor. Doesn't exactly need to be the funniest person, but if I throw sarcasm at him or joke around and he takes it seriously every time, yeah don't know how I'd deal with that.

Showing interest in your interests

Care about your hobbies even if they don't partake. I love gaming and Esports (in a healthy dose of course). SO is absolutely not into that stuff. But she still asks me about it every now and then. I have no intention of bringing her into gaming unless she wants to. But the fact that she cares and asks shows a lot.

Dig a little deeper

Respect for who I am as a human being. This girl I dated legitimately didn't care about my personal life and what I did, unless it was something "interesting" to her. She got hurt when I didn't seem to care about things, but if you ain't willing to put in the effort to at least try to care, I ain't either.

Some people need the minimum...

They MUST have a pulse.

Communication is key!

Good communication skills.

Get silly with it

This is gonna sound stupid but silliness. I get downright weird sometimes and if my SO can't get weird, too, and prefers to sit back and judge me, it's likely not going to work.

Roll with those punches

Able to "roll with the punches". If something comes our way we should be able to plan/face it head on and move from there. Running away or blaming doesn't solve anything

Patience is everything

Patience.

I've been single for 8 years. I'm not going to know how to be amazing as part of a couple right away.

Get out and experience new things!

A sense of adventure. I certainly know the value of lounging on the couch in my PJs with Netflix, but the routine kills me. Gotta be willing to do or try something new now and then.

You are a partner, not a jester

They've gotta be able to entertain themselves sometimes. I've dated people who constantly had to be interacting even if we were watching a film or chilling, but I need quiet moments and sometimes want to get absorbed into a book, game or whatever.

Someone likes a challenge

Must be willing to have heated debates about the dumbest, most non-consequential bs imaginable. Like subtle lifestyle differences.

Stinky breath is never attractive

Not a smoker.

It's a bit judgemental, but I can't stand cigarette smell, and smokers just exude it everywhere. In their clothes, their breath, their homes usually reek of it. No thank you.

No one likes to be controlled

Independence.

He needs to balance with me. If he cant give me space and have his own thing going on, it's a no go.

No cats or horses!

Gotta be human. Or at least passable as human.

This doesn't come easy for some people

TRUST.

On the same money page

The same attitude towards money that you have. If you're one of the YOLO types and your S.O. is all "plan our retirement the day we start jobs", it isn't going to work out. Nor the other way. And if you're a moderate, you need to find a moderate, too.

Beauty and brains is always a plus

Has to be smart

Bare minimum right there...

They need to exist, anything else is a bonus

It's good to be honest

Honestly, sexual compatibility.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
