Confidence, sense of humor and… good bone density? The women of “The Golden Bachelor” are opening up about the one thing to look for when you’re searching for the one.
Twelve women remain in the quest for 72-year-old Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner‘s, heart. They hail from Florida to Minnesota to California and range in age from 60 to 75 years old.
“These women … they are supportive of each other. They are so confident. They’re elegant women,” Turner previously gushed to “Good Morning America.” “They were, as a group, I think the sweetest women I have ever met in my life.”
“Good Morning America” asked each of the 12 remaining women to share the No. 1 thing they look for in a partner — and give some advice for women who may be looking for love the first time around.
“Compatibility is the most important thing to look for in a partner,” Christina said. “You and your partner should have shared values, similar goals and common interests to be successful.”
“Interpersonal intelligence is the key to making a relationship wonderful,” April said. “I need someone who understands themselves, and not only understanding yourself but [is] able to communicate that even in times of conflict and bliss. If you don’t know yourself how can anyone else know you?”
She added, “Interpersonal intelligence that’s the key to the foundation to the love that lasts a lifetime.”
“The most important quality in a relationship for me is integrity,” Ellen said. “Integrity means honesty and moral values that surpass any other quality that I would want in a man. If they do not have integrity, I would not be a part of their life.”
“Passion — I think for me I look for passion in a partner,” Faith said. “Somebody that is passionate about their every day, that looks forward to the positive things in life and has hobbies and interests that they’re passionate about…. Somebody that’s excited to go on adventures and bring new and exciting things into the relationship and likes to have fun. I think it takes a positively passionate person to bring that element to life that makes it so much more exciting to live.”
“Confidence. I like a man with self-confidence,” Joan said. “I think it’s kind of sexy — like he’s been through life and earned a swagger. Like he’s saying, ‘I got this.’ I like a man with self-confidence.”
