Kindness And Affection

RealfoxD said, "A kind, affectionate, supportive personality. " Kindness is also a huge deal. Playing hard to get can come off as rude or cold, which is why kindness is always the way to go. Unless they are rude to you, of course.

This sort of goes along with ambition. Being passionate about things shows that you can care and have interests in things, even if it's something as small as a TV show or book. Justj6sh said, "Passion. Whether its her job, hobbies, or whatever, its great to see a woman who is passionate about things even if its not something I feel the same about."

It makes a girl 100 times more attractive in my eyes because its so ridiculously rare." I know it's scary to make the first move, and you shouldn't do it if you're not comfortable with it!
