And Marvin is a paranoid male android. Unfortunately! The brain the size of a planet is about the only thing he has going for him!  :)

It's probably the brain that helps most.

Well, if you haven't got a big brain, you have to use what you've got.

Random thoughts:

Good general knowledge and interest in film, art, media in general (I can't just talk about football all day and I want to start my own quiz team)
Competence
What you see is what you get
Sweetness and kindness
Expertise of any kind
Someone who doesn't sit on the fence
Someone who gets my sense of humour
Positive outlook on life but not rose tinted
Curvy

Iv been attracted to people the first time I lay eyes on them.  Long before I'd spoken a word to them, been near enough to really see them, or even looked them in the eye. 

It was pure physical attraction.  Their shoulders, the way they held themselves, the colour of their skin, the way they moved around others.

Other people Ive been attracted to the minute they opened their mouth.  For them it was their eyes, the way they looked at me and held my hand.  The sound of their voice and the things they said.

For Still others, its been an attraction thats been a long time coming.  I know them, I know their little quirks and the things that irritate them and what they eat for breakfast.. then one day I look at them and *boom* I'm in lust.  Suddenly I can see potential for something there, and everything they do is suddenly infused with sexual energy.

For me, attraction is very rarely a conscious act.

so very well said

Ok, mine:

Integrity
Wit
A way with, and appreciation of, words
Courage
A sense of adventure
A sense of the absurd (thanks, PQ)
A love of the outdoors

Physical stuff:
Dark hair
Medium build
Nice tits

But that's just an abstract shopping list. Reality is often very different.

Women in general - if you want me to instantly want you, just give me that look with the wicked, amused, confident, flattered, eager glint in your eye because you know how we could make each other feel. It's the look that lets me know we're both dykes and there's a world of fascinating possibilities!

What attracted me to my partner (before she realised I was in love with her and started giving me that look!) was her intelligence, gentleness, generosity, amazing breadth and depth of knowledge and sweet way of sharing it, her interest and curiosity about things, strength of character, sense of humour, the way she understands beauty, and our shared interests and joys. It helped that she's also beautiful on the outside.



...oh, and her wrists. Got a bit of a thing about women's wrists...

I thought of more, but I'm not sure how to put it - a drive for something, I would say ambition but I dont mean for a career, promotion; I mean someone chasing a goal, on a quest if you like, someone who puts their everything into their passion and works on achieving it.
And kindness, and thoughtfulness.
And a certain disregard (but not total) for worldly things. Absence of greed. I cannot abide greed.
