No clue what I'm looking for. It seems that in order to know what you want, you need to know what you don't want as well. Seeing as I have no experience in the dating department, I'm really not sure want I'm looking for.

The only thing I know for sure is that she should like star wars.

Halloween is this month, so I was watching the movie "Practical Magic", in the first few minutes of the movie we meet two little girls from a family of witches. The family has a curse on them, if any of them fall in love with a man that man will die.
The little girls mother died of a broken heart. One of these girls is named Sally, and she is better at witchcraft then her sister.
Sally doesn't want to die of a broken heart, so she makes a spell for a true love, but because no such man can exist, she will never fall in love and never die of a broken heart.
Fast forward a few years and she is all grown up, things happen and sure enough such a man does exist and they do fall in love.
According to the spell "He will hear my call a mile away. He will whistle my favorite song. He can ride a pony backwards."
"He can flip pancakes in the air. He'll be marvelously kind, and his favorite shape will be a star."
"And he will have one green eye, and one blue."
Vote for me! I will fix everything, giving everyone health care, food, a home with high speed internet and a good paying job, & kill everyone who makes more then $1 million per year &give their money to the poorest 10%.

<So far here is what we have to look for in our perfect soulmate:

"He's too humble to know that he is perfect."
"He is intelligent, supportive, funny, romantic and courageous."
"He's got a good body, but doesn't have to look in the mirror every two minutes."
"He's kind, sensitive, gentle, not afraid to cry in front of me."
"He likes animals, children and he'll change poopy diapers."
"He plays an instrument and he loves his mother."

Sees everything as an illusion, but enjoy it even though you are not of it.
Is both masculine and feminine, politically aware, and don't believe in capital punishment.
Derive joy from diving in and seeing that stoving someone can actually feel like freedom.
Funny and self-deprecating, like adventure, and have many formed opinions.
Uninhibited in bed, more than three times a week, and up for being experimental.
Athletic, thriving in a job that helps others, not addicted to anything.

Don't date anyone under the age of:

(Age/2)+7

If we flip this around, then we get "Don't date anyone older then 2(Age-7)"

If we put that together then we should only date people who are:
Older then (Age/2)+7, but younger then 2(Age-7)
If you do the math that means that you shouldn't even start dating until you turn 14, and even then, only other 14 year olds.
As you get older you become more experienced at dating, so you are allowed to date a wider range of people.
However this should only be used as a guide up to a given point, you should probably not date anyone who is more then 20 years older or younger then you are, cuz then they would be old enough to be your dad, or young enough to be your son.

Masculine, though not afraid of sensitivity. Intelligent, thoughtful, dependable, mature.

I'm sorry about your person, Emma. <3

I might as well describe the girl I've been in love with since before I realized that I liked girls. She's unique and willing to argue her solid viewpoints. She's smart and funny all the time, wisecracking and fun to be around, and she's emotional and unafraid of her sensitive side. She knows me better than anyone, compliments me in all the right things, and trusts me.

<Sounds like somebody worth having around.>
<The best advise I have ever heard when it comes to dating is to think of it as trying to build a relationship that will lead to marriage.>
<At first, when you are under 14 years of age, you don't even know yourself well enough to even begin to know what to look for. At this stage you should just be looking to have friends, as many as you can handle, and try to make those friendships as strong as possible.>
<Then from 14 to 21 years of age you are dating people who will teach you what you want and what you don't want in a soul mate.>
<Yes this person may be an artist who likes Star Wars, but they are a messy slob who never picks up after them self and you find your self doing all the work whenever you two are together.>
<So you figure that that isn't what you want, they also have to be somewhat neat and hard working.>
<By the time you are 21 to 30 years of age you should have a good list of things that you think you want in a soul mate, and you are trying to be the kind of person that they would be attracted to.>
<After all, a neat, hard working artist who likes Star Wars will not go out with you if you just sit at home all day watching You Tube videos and playing video games, waiting for your government food benefits to come in so that you can spend it all on soda pop.>
(Don't laugh 2 hard, that is biased on 2 different room mates that I have had.)

Not that I've ever looked for one (the idea of looking for someone who you just happen to fall in love with seems faily unrealistic to me), but an ideal bf/gf, for me, might have these traits:
O Considerate of other people, compassionate.
O Not necessarily outgoing, but brave enough to stand up for themselves or another person.
O Doesn't care about gender stereotypes.
O Calm.
O Intelligent (not academically, just... logical).
O Somewhat reserved, only using words where they're needed and not wasting them on cliches.
O Someone who doesn't really get what "going out" means. I sure don't.
All else is kind of up in the air; these are the main things, to me. having said all this, though, I've never liked anyone, so it's not like I can say for sure.
