    Post Re: What Traits Are Most Important to You When Looking for a Mate?

    I have to be attracted to the woman to begin with and I list the face and facial structure as most important to me. I have certain types I find more attractive than others. Typical mainstream models I don't find very attractive. Skin tone is more important to me than hair and eye color. Usually I prefer redheads, but I also find women with pale skin, but darker hair attractive(the so-called "goth" look I like). Hair's important in looks to me in terms of texture as I like straight or slightly wavy hair, but don't find curly hair or poofed up hair attractive, real short hair on a woman is another turn off. I generally don't care for real skinny women, but I don't find obese women attractive either.

    Good mental health I rate higher than anything else, besides physical attraction. I'm amazed at the number of women on antidepressants or SSRI's. I value common sense or street smarts over formal education. TV viewing habits speak volumes about a person. If she watches garbage like MTV, American Idol or any reality based TV show she's out.

    I guess I am the first female to reply..so here goes. Some say they look at intelligence or attractiveness first or second. I personally look for both in a person, I probably would not marry a person who only had one of those elements. I would more than likely marry someone who meets my standards in both areas, and would probably keep looking until I found that someone with "both". Physically I would prefer someone who is in good shape, 6ft or over and of medium build (I do not really like men who are very.."stocky" shall we say. aka steroid packed ). I would like to raise children in an active household, not one where we all spend our time sitting in front of the "idiot box" dulling our minds. As for hair, I like blonde to red and as for eyes; blue would be best though light green can look good on the right people.

    As for attributes, I would not necessarily like someone with my exact interests (though that would be nice to a certain extent, but it could cause some conflict) but someone who's interests compliment my own in some way. I also do not like passivity though not someone who would think himself "superior". I definetly like a challenge, so someone who I could have a good debate with would be great. Most of all I would enjoy someone who I would work best with as a "team", complimenting each others strengths. Interests, generally, in history, warfare, politics and philosophy would be nice. I would value someone who is not materialistic or selfish, but who has a good view of the "big picture". I definetly would not marry someone who belittled me, yet neither would I marry an allout weakling/overly emotional baffoon ...again I bring up the "complimenting" of each others attributes. Never would I raise children in a household where my husband and I had little regard or respect for each other, enough children have had their lives ruined by childhoods centered on those kinds of relationships.

    Lastly, a persons origins/background is very important. Someone who's origins are as close to my own as possible. Must keep my family's blood and honour running strong

    Physical attributes are totally irrelevant. What matters is intelligence (I'm not the one for small talk) and that she is supporting my political views and activities. So far I have not even found one with one of these two requirements.

    That is debatable. Apart from that I don't want to travel thousands of miles into a country where complete retardation is the rule, not the exception.

    Intelligence. I also like fair skin. And a certain amount of 'innocence' would not go astray, either. (I probably ask the impossible - the first and third characteristics are a bit contradictory, I know.)

    Without wanting to sound 'superior' (NormanBlood), higher IQ males are often lonely because there simple aren't that many higher IQ whites around period, and proportionately less females in the upper reaches of the bell curve. My other main problem: too blunt
    If I rest, I rust.

    While this may or may not be true, I don't think you can deny that women most certainly have a "maternal" preservationist instinct that can be seen in the urge to protect the offspring/family unit and often the tribe/folk as a whole. Women, as the bearers of life, cannot be excluded from our efforts to protect our people, our cultural heritage, and yes, ultimately our lands...

    Being blunt is not a problem. Trust me, it saves a lot of time we normally waste on unnecessary and futile niceties and other civilisatory crap.

    These are, perhaps, the most important words written in this thread thus far.
