What is the single most impossible trait to do without in a mate?

Though the second on the list is not far away, I'd have to say... a thinking mind.

I need someone who wants to make the world a better place. I cannot be with someone who is selfish. Our species can evolve to be altruistic.

Great question!

Must have a sense of humor. It will help get you through all the ups and downs. Because I truly believe Laughter is the best medicine.

Number two, intelligence.

sexual compatability

didn't occur to me because never been in that strange situation but I reckon couldn't bare that situation just won't feel right to me. Everything else will be Nulled!!!! What will be of the relation without a good bed?

Sense of humor coupled to intelligence.

There's no one thing. A person is a whole.

If this is a trait: being happy with oneself

I would think that is "self-acceptance".

There ya go.

The Bed has to be Right otherwise can you call her/him really a mate?

A really good sense of humor. I was going to say 'intelligence', but a good sense of humor absolutely requires intelligence, so my bases are covered.

I'll go with empathy also.

I don't much cruise hospital's for the brain dead chick's, either....hehe...communication opens the road to all the other traits, so I'm going with communication....I'll toss number 2 in for free...laughter...laughter is the thing I remember most about every good time.

Compassion

Being kindhearted

Hard to limit it to one but I guess many things can spring from emotional health/intelligence.

1

Patience and a willingness to compromise.
Recognition that no-one is perfect and that we all have struggles that we must work through.
A mate would need to have the willingness to lift a person up as they work through the things that they are struggling with and to have the ability to see, acknowledge, and to become accountable and have the willingness to work toward modifying their own flaws as well.
