It's been 12 years since I went on a blind date. My only requirement at the time was that he show up and not leave me standing out side the cafe looking like a tool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> He hasn't left my side since <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
I would have the same requirements, whether my date was blind or not. (Or well, I have to say the main criteria would be the same but they might be somewhat stricter. That may sound discriminatory but it's true.)

Lets say your wish list you give to your friend who knows what you like....LOL</div>
What are the first things that come to your mind when thinking about a person compatible with you? Those are likely important qualities to put on your 'wish list'.
That would seem to be the best way to go about it.......Strict guidelines!!!!!<br><br><br><br>
Know what you want before you go shopping.......eliminates wasted time at the store..........LOL
I have dated people I met through the internet. Not totally blind in that I talked on the phone and email first, but talked with them before really meeting them in person before. And even if you see a picture, people never look like their pictures anyway.<br><br><br><br>
I guess if a friend wanted to set me up I'd say they had to be smart, love animals, be non-religious and non-newagey, and have generally left of center politics. And of course the obvious things like trustworthy, not legally married and kind. And although not a requirement, it would help if they had some similar interests and compatable temperment, like nature, doesn't go out clubbing all the time. etc.-
I agree in the friend who is setting you up part. I was set up by a friend and married the guy. My list of requirements was short at the time. Good relationship w/ his family- taller than I-( I am 5'8) career goals, likes children and animals
