My top 6 are:
Explicit Objectivist (possessing all the virtues and studies the philosophy)
Continuously works on improving psycho-epistemology (introspects often)
Understands the relationship between emotions and ideas
Passionate about their values
Positive outlook on life, wants to have fun or has that general approach
Healthy (exercise and eating habits)
Currently my total list is pretty long but the majority of these others consist of the nice to have.
I started out by listing ALL of the things I wanted in a woman (it might have been 50 at this initial stage). I determined some of what I wanted based on women from previous relationships (and friends) and also somewhat on what I was becoming. I realized these good traits that I was developing were many that I also wanted to see reflected in the woman I would pursue for a serious relationship.
I then began to order them by importance, and to subsume any that were derivatives of others. I also combined the ones that were similar.
This whole process helped me focus (zoom in) on what really mattered to me in a woman (and why) and if I had been settling in the past. This led to deeper question of why had I been settling in the past (but thatís for another post).
A woman that possesses these top 6 and one that Iím sexually attracted, well letís just say I want to meet herÖÖÖ..RIGHT NOW.
Iím not forgetting that the sense of life also needs to match to, but for the most part I think that can only be determined in person. As many of you all have said it takes a lot of time interacting with that person on different levels and in different scenarios.
