I would like to understand what people feel is important in choosing a suitable partner?

Forming a mental connection is important to me however are other features.. money , job vs physical appearance, active on social media as important?

Suitable partner for me would be:
Great personality
Caring and Loving
Physical or sexual connection
Into same things

How long is a piece of string as they say.
Everyone will have a different view.
Yes for me the connection is must, physical appearance too. Compatibility in the lifestyle which would also be our everyday life.
I dont care about money/job but hope we both earn enough to be comfortable. Social media isnt something i would think about.

Connection, chemistry, being on the same wavelength, having common interests, attraction, empathetic, sympathetic, easy to communicate with and many many more factors all come into it - in fact I'd go as far as to say that it can't really be defined with words, not fully anyway, whilst all of the things I listed are desirable there's something more that goes beyond definition, but those are all good starting points.

~I don't care about looks, I don't have a specific type of attraction to people
~An emotional connection is most important to me as well as intellectual
~They would have to be actively looking for a job, have a job or be in school
~Active on social media isn't important to me unless we talk on an app, for example, Snapchat. I'm not on any social media really at all except this or snap

It's subjective no, dependent upon your own individual priorities?
Job/income isn't something I worry about but and enjoyment of heing challenged, stretching yourself and having ambition and drive to better oneself is because that's one of my core values and to me sharing core values is paramount when it's so central to my work and therefore a big part of who I am as an individual. I'd hope for shared core values generally.
Intelligence, not so much but the person needs to be able to hold their own in a conversation. It'll come as a surprise to some, but like to play devils advocate and debate things whilst not necessarily agreeing on everything and participation in that I also feel is important.
Wit is also significant having grown up in a family who were particularly funny (as in haha, not odd, I think)
Lastly in terms of characterstics, the person needs to be strong willed/have a strong character. Not to the point of being oppressive etc but to the point that they can get the better of me. If I can walk all over someone, I find it hard to respect them and if I can't respect someone i'm pretty dismissive
Other than that, there has to be physical chemistry and mental connection else what's the point? For me at least.

Connection….. for me that’s the basis of everything.
There’s general things such as humour & attitude to life but again that comes from connection.

As people have said, connection and chemistry would be the main things. If these are right then both parties will find a way to support each other and make everything else fall into place.

Obviously, I have to be physically attracted to the person, but having a connection can make someone much more attractive to me. Aside from that, honesty, empathy, and good communication skills are super important

Very much agree^. Whether you and your partners kink is 24/7 or strictly in the bedroom, being able to have good communication, respect, etc. is very very important. It’s needed in order to grow with them; because unfortunately, if you don’t have anything other than just a sexual type of relationship, it’ll die out really quick.

Always is that funny thing when majority of the world use what someone's face looks like to judge whether they want to play with their genitals...
