"Conversation. If we are having some deep a** conversations, I'm immediately drawn to you and feel closer to you." -u/Immediate_Fix_1442. "I also love conversation! I used to travel a lot and was always alone, so I would just wait for strangers who also liked to talk to come along and have a conversation. There's one guy I met like this 6 years ago and we still talk. I wish people enjoyed talking more, but I wish that talkers were also equal listeners. I've got some really good friends who just can't shut up sometimes and allow a response. It's fine they're good people and I know them and love them." -u/PrivacyIsRaked

2. Respecting animals and senior individuals

"Respect for animals and elderly people." -u/Quick_Apartment4616. "Respect should always be given until they show they're not worthy, regardless of who they are. I've worked in personal care and animal rescue (foster, rehabilitation & rehome) for years. I will say that I prefer animals to most people." -u/ruthtrick. "People always say you have to earn respect. Respect should be the default. You earn disrespect." -u/GenericFatGuy

3. Being authentic

This genuine nature makes me feel at ease and more inclined to be authentic too, fostering mutual respect and likability from the start." -u/Alternative_Cow_85

4. Making sure everyone feels included

It shows they're thoughtful, considerate and genuinely kind, traits that make them instantly likable." -u/Straight-Dentist3591

5. Kindness to strangers

When I see someone going out of their way to be kind, whether it's holding the door open, helping someone with directions, or any small act of consideration, it speaks volumes about their character. It shows they care about others, making me instantly admire and like them." -u/Excellent_Oil3519

This trait is incredibly appealing and draws me in right away." -u/Acceptable_String459

7. Paying attention

"Their ability to pay attention. One of my absolute favorite people of all time was this girl I used to bartend with. If we were having a conversation, she would always seem genuinely interested in what I had to say (along with everyone else who worked there, so I knew she wasn't just playing favorites with me, etc). I would be telling a story or something similar and, oftentimes, she or I would have to tend to a guest, clean and the like. She would always make sure she came back around and would say, 'Now what were you saying? Please, continue.' I know that sounds like a little thing, but too many people, including myself, just don't take those conversations seriously at all, but she would always make anyone talking to her feel special and important." -u/grimbolde

8. Sense of humor

"A genuine smile and a sense of humor. Someone who can laugh, especially at themselves, and spread positivity through a smile has a magnetic quality. It's a sign of warmth, openness, and a positive outlook on life, making me instantly feel more connected and interested in getting to know them." -u/Western_Second_8471

9. Making an effort to connect

"There was this one time when we were all dispersing to go home, and I usually walk alone. But then this girl all of a sudden waited for me to catch up to her or something so that she could talk to me. I found it really cute. Trying to make the effort to talk to me is something that makes me like someone instantly, in my opinion." -u/annotrix2580

10. Having a light-hearted approach

This trait tends to make conversations more enjoyable and indicates a positive outlook, making me instantly like them." -u/Natural-Mention5416
