What turns me on? - continued

Commenting on my post yesterday, Lillie said: "It seems we've found that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder". She is right, but I would add that it is also in the mind of the observer. After thinking about it some more, I have come up with some criteria for attractive partners.

As I said before, I am attracted by talent: in drama, writing, music, comedy, dance - if a man can not only dance well, but can take me round a dance floor and lead me so that I don't falter, he is a winner.

I am attracted to someone from whom I can learn, and who is prepared to teach me.

I am attracted to someone who expects a lot from me and challenges me to extend my own boundaries.

I am attracted to someone with a sense of the ridiculous, of fantasy and of romance.

And - borrowed from Lillie - I am attracted to someone who is verbal and articulate and expressive.

Any one of these would do.......

Ah, but you had the good fortune actually to see him in the flesh and meet him Pam, and I shall always envy you that.
