A head, a torso, a love for animals, sympathetic viewpoints and a compatible sense of humor.

The rest is just stuff.

Yes, true, but just ignore that, and see whether the post/ words/ what they are looking for; shows their gender and if the traits they look for are typically male/ female

Ability to contribute to the relationship ie provide meaningful conversation, interesting ideas for adventures, and long term goals and objectives. Appearance is somewhat important I dont mind imperfections but being significantly overweight is a deal breaker a little chub is fine especially if you come hit the gym with me. Constructive and generally healthy behaviors. Exercise, mentally stimulating hobbies, and abstaining from regular drug use are highly desirable.

Tobacco use is a hard pass.

- Alive and real
- I like them
- They won't file a restraining order

But more specifically I look for someone educated/well-read with at least a few similar interests, preferably including fitness. Not liking kids or animals is an immediate, irrevocable nope.
