    Sorry, bee.

    I don't really agree in relationship prerequisites.

    However for the sakes of contribution and to refrain this from being a thread deflating post, I present my few dislikes in a partner.

    In no particular order.

    Conformism
    Bitter
    Pretentious
    Weak
    Cold

    There's a few anyway. I hope this doesn't put a downer on the thread but it may offer insight to INFp.

    I think it's great to identify what you want (and not just in a partner, but in all aspects of life). The clearer you are, the better. I'll make a list in a bit.

    Uhhh, this may take some thought.

    1. Inspiring/Intelligent
    2. Mutual Attraction
    3. Independent
    4. Adventurous/Spontaneous/Playful
    5. Similar values (Loyalty, Sense of Family, etc)
    6. Goals/Ambition
    7. Romantic
    8. Sense of Organization (Totally hot to me, I don't know why...)
    9. Witty/Clever
    10. Mutual Interests

    Seems about right.

    I think you will. You're probably just not ready yet.

    I agree. I know objectively that it's a good idea to make a list or whatever (for anything in life) but I detest doing it. I prefer to remain open to the possibilities (that is, if I were single but also applying this to other areas of life and yes that often will mean never getting anywhere because you're not sure where you're going and the act of "remaining open" is restricting you to never do anything). I agree with this list of dislikes also.

    Hmm, here goes:

    1. Assertive
    2. Outgoing/Engaging
    3. Down-to-earth
    4. Funny
    5. Creative
    6. Open-minded
    7. Kind-hearted
    8. Devoted
    9. Active
    10. Mutual attraction/interests/values

    I can think of a few other things which could have made the list, but they're less character-related.

    Pff, too vague. What the hell does "assertive" mean, anyway? I say we limit it to 1.

    also too many for me... but what do you know i agree with maria

    My partner must:

    1. Like me
    2. tolerate me
    3. be involved with music somehow (share this interest)
    4. share a mutual attraction

    Kind of off the top of my head:


    1. Socionics compatibility.
    2. Must value and practice the same or similar things as I do. In particular: Intellectual enlightenment, pre 1960s standards of conduct (including fidelity), religion, etc.
    3. Being good at what I suck at. I suck at Fe and S.

    4. Using her complementary skills to help me being her husband, rather than playing an ego game. Like f.i. using them to improve my business.
    5. Reasonable intelligence level, I don't want stupidities like an interrogation as to why I look repeatedly into the cupboard while I'm planning dinner.
    6. Giving me space - I don't want to be smothered or forced to live someone else's life.

    7. Wifey - keeping everything nice, clean and cozy.
    8. Able and willing to love, honor and obey.
    9. Reasonably healthy mentally and physically.

    10. Reasonable level of mutual attraction.

    2 might be reasonable, but I honestly don't think I can even come up with 10, except of the form "compatible in X". I'll come up with some in a bit.

    1. Fun, easygoing
    2. Passionate, ambitious (has big dreams & intense interests and pursues them)
    3. Intelligent, intellectual (interested in talking about intellectual things)
    4. Similar sense of humor
    5. Physically confident, sensual
    6. Not flirty (I get jealous easily)
    7. Not pretentious
    8. Not self-deprecating
    9. Attentive (goes with #6)
    10. Active (someone who is always doing something)

    Plus basic human-decency sort of things. And attraction is always a pre-requisite.

    10 requirements? I could never think of that many. If i like you, i like you...not because you fit 9 out of the 10 requirements. Some people just fit with you and it can't be explained. Making a list would only cloud my view of a person and be extremely limiting.
