Emotional Intelligence

A user commented, “Looking back, the thing that should’ve been the biggest green flag about the woman I married was that she made just as much effort to see me as I did to see her. She texted me first, suggested hang-out times, and came up with date ideas just as often as I did. I don’t think I realized it back then, but I realize it now.”

Confidence Without Arrogance

“She has a level of confidence. Nothing crazy but you can tell she has an idea what she wants.”

Independence and Autonomy

One user replied, “I always appreciate when my date shows that they have their own passions and interests outside of the relationship. It shows that they are a well-rounded person and gives us more to talk about.”

Another user said, “When my date is confident and comfortable being themselves, it really puts me at ease and helps me relax too. It’s a great feeling to be around someone who is secure in their own skin.”

Physical Chemistry and Attraction

Finally, “They don’t want it to end. Excuses or suggesting places to go after the main date to keep talking. Or if that’s not possible (maybe one of us is working the next day), her texting once she gets home or if she’s in a taxi home, her messaging as soon as you leave one another.” Source: Reddit
