Well, there are lots of qualities that everyone wants their dream partner to have. But the most important thing is that person loves you for who you are. It's vital that he/she doesn't hurt you in any way.

Some people also care about good looks. For me, looks don't matter as long as he loves me and is understanding, caring and funny!

When I think about my dream man, the word "fairytale" springs to mind.

Firstly, I want my dream man to have a good sense of humour, so he can make me laugh a lot. Secondly, even when I don't speak a word, he should know how I feel. That's what I dream of.

But realistically there is only one important thing - a dream man should love you for who you are and also love your imperfections.

My guy definitely needs to have a sense of humour that I can appreciate. There's nothing more enjoyable than witty banter and sharing jokes.

We would also need to share similar values - we can be polar opposites in personality, but shared political or religious views are very important.

Last but not least, he definitely needs to have a "can-do" attitude. There's no use spending loads of time with a person who doesn't inspire you, and isn't supportive of your dreams. An innovative person can really help you to achieve success.

My dream man would be knowledgeable and funny, as well as honest and reliable. I think anyone with those qualities is likely to have a good heart and positive approach to life. That would make him a wonderful person I would like to spend my time with.

A pretty face is attractive, I can't deny that. But apart from good looks, I also want my dream girl to be kind and considerate. Is that greedy?

But bear with me. I just can't tolerate hypocrites - those who pretend to be who they are not. They usually have a heart of stone and do not respect or care about others.

So, for me, there is nothing more important than kindness.
