Wednesday Factoid: Attractive

Today's Wednesday Factoid is: Things about someone that you find attractive.

I don't experience any sexual or romantic attraction to other people, so I guess this answer will be slightly less about "attractive" in the traditional sense, but to be honest, I think most people who DO experience those things would mostly include traits that don't depend on the physical or sensual anyway.

Things I find attractive:

  • Creativity
  • Dedication
  • Honesty that isn't an excuse to be a jerk
  • Good listening skills
  • Good communication skills
  • Non-judgmental attitudes
  • Appreciation of children
  • Acknowledgment that "maturity" is not the same thing as "leaving behind everything you cared about as a child"
  • Authenticity that isn't trying to get you to look at how authentic it is
  • Open-mindedness and acceptance (not "tolerance" in the usual sense)
  • Selflessness that doesn't extend into self-hatred
  • Ability to sing or play an instrument
  • Caring about political, social, and environmental issues that I do
  • Politeness (especially toward restaurant and retail workers; you can always tell if someone's kind if they don't treat people hired to help them like second-class citizens)
  • Willingness to disclose true feelings without sulkily expecting others to root them out
  • Independence/lack of neediness
  • Willingness to be supportive
  • Silliness
