While things like looks and attraction are what brought us together, trust and communication are that things that have keep our relationship strong over these last 23 years. It's also what will keep it together until we die.

ToyTimeTim had an excellent answer.

In my current relationship... I have to admit it was looks, and sexual attraction/similar sexual interests that brought he and I together. Now it's all about trust and communication. Sure, I still think he's gorgeous, but without trust and good communication? We'd fall apart.

I agree, you all said it best.

Chemistry and trust are the ground stones for any relationship in my opinion.

All are important, but I would say someone who complements you is best.

I would stay if we were not having sex, but not if for some reason he no longer deserved my trust and love.

I'm with Love Obsessed on this one. My parents (and my in laws) have spent most of my and my husband's) lifes(ves) hiding stuff from each other, lying, not talking through their problems, and while they appear happy and normal on the inside my husband and I have seen first hand what no communication and no trust can do to a relationship. The only thing I have hidden from my husband is his surprise party and that was HARD! I don't think you can love someone without trust and I don't think you can make a relationship work with out communication.

Trust and communication is very important. I also think attraction is important too. I am very attracted to Anakin and can't get enough of Him.

I only voted trust but then realized it could be broken by bad communication... Also, respect of boundaries. Shh, I can't take back my vote

Trust and communication are always number one. Support and encouragement in each others choices in life, is second. And third the simple satisfaction of knowing you are there for each other.

There are so many factors competing for "most important" that it's difficult to determine.

I agree, trust, communication, respect and love. However if you have all of that and the sex isn't satisfying, long-term just won't work. Of course great sex alone won't do it either.

Trust and communication! If those are great, everything else can be fixed or will fall into place. If they're lacking, none of the others will make up for it.

Trust and communication - though without attraction as well, it's not really a relationship.

you have to be able to trust each other and communicate with each other about problems or worries.

~nods of all the things listed trust and good solid communication skills are essential, the rest can be worked on!

Trust and communication are essential, the rest tend to grow from that. Attraction is a close second though, helps to find your partner appealing.

Sense of humor is what draws me in. I can't even begin to think about anything else if they don't have that quality.
