He has to be honest. If there isn't honesty, there isn't anything, I think. A good listener. I talk a lot (and sometimes too much), so if it's a guy who expects a woman to be quiet, it's not going to work. I don't expect him to remember everything I say, but I don't like feeling ignored either. I have quite a thing for nerds. I was quite a nerd during school, so I feel comfortable around them. My ideal mate doesn't HAVE to be like that, but it would be a plus. And definitely someone who likes a girl that loves him and likes showing it. Someone who isn't scared of too many details. Someone who is proud of his girl and wants to show her to the world instead of hiding her away.
