Most Helpful Girl
Haha IMMENSELY important. If I plan on getting in to a relationship with this guy, I have to be on the same level as him, intellectually of course. And in order to find this out, we must be able to converse with each other comfortably. 20% of a relationship is typically physical, but the other 80% is usually where those heart-to-heart, deep conversations take place.
I would personally look for a guy who is able to open up, tell me things he wouldn't usually be able to tell anyone else. But at the same time, he would need to be a good listener-- balancing the uses of both his mouth and his ears. Some girls would prefer their significant others to have a "filter", but I'd rather have a guy who tells me how it is. Not the type who beats around the bush. But yeah, everybody has different tastes.
