Hopefully the list is about right. Feel free to add or ignore anything on it (just don't cheat on yourself, please, for crying out loud).
I'm just curious to see what the average response might be among the saints...
I'd put Holiness on top, and bring up Bravery/Confidence, Communicative, and Honesty up higher too.
It would be difficult to build a strong relationship without a firm spirituality and values system as foundation. And as regards the other two, I've been surprised to find that a lot of men are not actually as brave and confident as most people (women, especially) would think. Men can actually be quite shy and flustered and indecisive, and not at all take charge. Time and again, I've found that despite my own shyness, I sometimes find myself making decisions and taking charge because the guy I'm with is waiting for I-don't-know-what. Honesty is a given. It shows a willingness to invest trust in the other person, and it inspires reciprocal confidence.
Towards the bottom of the list I would probably put Great career and Physical attractiveness. "Great" is subjective. I think that as long as the person has a respectable job that he enjoys, it's enough. Physical attractiveness is also subjective. And even if one has demi-godlike looks and is considered "universally" attractive, it doesn't guarantee chemistry. Pleasant to look at is enough, though not required. Wonderful to talk to and trustworthiness is.
