Physical Attraction, for a partner.

It's a less obvious question than you might think - and had their been one I probably would have taken the "Both" option. As a general rule, however - and there are MANY exceptions - physical attraction is more important to start.
However, the relationship will never last if the intellectual attraction is not there. The first time I saw my girlfriend, I was like - "WOW!! I have to meet that gal!!!"
However, over her time, her humor, our shared interests, her gentleness, the way she rolls her eyes, smiles, and gives me a gentle pat on the cheek whenever I get on my high horse about something... Those are the things that keep me with her - over ten years and three children later - and make me want to be a better person for her.
Her physical beauty caught my attention. Her "intellectual" qualities are what keep me around and make me want to try harder to be a better boyfriend and father than I am.2
