100 Traits/Qualities I Wouldn’t Mind If My Next Girlfriend Had

Obviously, I don’t expect a person to display ALL these qualities but maybe 15% would be nice.  99% would mean that person is pretty much exactly like me which, while it sounds great in theory, is a bad idea.  I already have me.  If you are 100%, you know who you are and I’m sure we can work it out.

So I wouldn’t mind is she…

  1. …is a nice person overall
  2. …can be an asshole and say the occasional snarky remark behind people’s back
  3. …is into comic books or at least open to the possibility to being into comic books
