Poll Results: Most Important Quality in a Partner

In the last poll that I put up where 100 readers took part in, the results are as followed:

8% Attractive Looks

20% Good Character

31% Common Beliefs, Interests, Life Goals

8% Charismatic & Confident

14% Stable Career / Self-Motivated

19% Trustworthy (this answer was added by a reader)

From the results of the poll, it is evident that most of my readers when searching for a mate, they place more importance in the ‘inside’ than the ‘outside’ i.e. good character and trustworthiness rank higher than attractive looks.

And high on the list is of course sharing the similar beliefs, goals and interests. This is actually SO important, because only by having common beliefs, values, goals and even interests, you can grow as a couple. This will also be illustrated in my next instalment of ‘My Best Match’.

Stay tuned! πŸ™‚

  1. Well i did an online poll on my own (total respondents of approximately 300 (50%m:50%f), surprisingly enough, it hardly tallies with your poll results.

    Qualities In Partner
    Women On Men :: 9.0/10 look for financial security
    (not surprised)

    Men On Women :: 8.5/10 look for financial security (extremely surprised)

    I came to the conclusion that men nowadays are as smart as the women of today. Attaining financial security works both ways just as how the women of today speak about gender equality. I think this is what i would call Globalization in the 21st century.


  2. Hi DK,
    I am quite uncomfortable with the usage of the word ‘ugly’ as I believe that everybody is beautiful in their own way. It is just a matter of knowing how to accentuate your strengths. Of course, for men, the first impression places a lot of emphasis on attractivenss. So, ladies going on first dates should always take note! As they say, there are no ugly women, only lazy women. πŸ™‚


  3. Hi Joe,
    Thank you for dropping by and sharing with us your survey findings. I must say that your results are rather interesting. The survey that I conducted on this website has the weakness that it does not separate the ladies’ answers from the men’s answers. πŸ™‚ Do continue to share with us any interesting findings you have! πŸ™‚


  4. Hi Jialing,
    Welcome to my blog! πŸ™‚ I too believe that each and every one of us should have a partner to spend the rest of our lives with. However, I think apart from just waiting around for the right one, we do have to be more proactive in our search.
