[rebelmouse-image 18347584 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359912 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359913 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359914 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359915 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18359916 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They MUST have a pulse.

Communication is key!

[rebelmouse-image 18359918 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Good communication skills.

Get silly with it

[rebelmouse-image 18359919 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359920 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359921 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


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!

[rebelmouse-image 18352944 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346804 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359922 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Stinky breath is never attractive

[rebelmouse-image 18354117 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359923 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


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!

[rebelmouse-image 18359924 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Gotta be human. Or at least passable as human.

This doesn't come easy for some people

[rebelmouse-image 18359926 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]


On the same money page

[rebelmouse-image 18348484 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346424 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Has to be smart

Bare minimum right there...

[rebelmouse-image 18359927 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They need to exist, anything else is a bonus

It's good to be honest

[rebelmouse-image 18359928 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Honestly, sexual compatibility.

I love movies. Who doesn't?

Film has been leaving an impression on our lives for over a century.

Some of the things we remember most are the images. The shots that seem otherworldly.

How does the director and the DP figure it all out? How do they see the colors?

I've seen some shots that have left me breathless.

It's all genius.

How high was God or whoever when they designed the human body? Clearly they needed a crash course in anatomy.

The body is amazing and resilient, but it can also be a hot mess.

Why are so many areas susceptible to pain? Like, one bad fall on a knee and you could be hobbled for life.

They should be more bulletproof. And the eyes, why so fragile when a wild eyelash gets caught in a blink?

So many questions. If the body was intended to last ten decades or so, it should be a bit more bionic.

Redditor MrBowls wanted to get into details about anatomy and it's issues, they asked:

"What’s the worst designed part of the human body?"
