  • No, I thought my man was kinda ugly when I first saw him but he is so kind and loving, he is the hottest man alive!

  • This is a good question! SO n I are having major problems because he doesn't communicate and he's not at all affectionate when he's stressed. Double whammy! So we will be going to couples therapy as a result of this.

    #1 Communication!

  • Uber hot with a big penis :) lol jk. I think that values are big. You have to have a similar set of values. Honesty, communication, good heartedness(so not a word), loyalty and respect. Yeah, hotness kinda matters, but I've never seen anything sexier than a dad wrangling his kids in public and not even breaking a sweat.

  • If he can make me laugh and smile and generally be happy, that's more than enough. (:

  • good sense of humor, trustworthy, good communicator, respectful, & willing to provide for his family (either w/ as the breadwinner or SAHD).

    looks are important in that i have to be attracted to him. if im not physically attracted to him, then he's just a friend. luckily, DH is a good looking guy AND has all the qualities above :D

  • When I first met my now-DH, honesty was something I focused on, since the last person I had dated was a big fat liar. lol I also loved that he had a sense of humor, and I immediately felt safe with him. I'm also not one to focus on looks, but I have to admit he was HOT then, and has only gotten hotter with age :)
