Give your character some endearing qualities that make you want to visit with him or her again and again

Make your character idealistic. Give him a soft spot for kids or dogs. Give her a passion for chocolate, or for rescuing the down-and-out. Create for him or her a sheer joy in living that transcends the mire into which you are eventually going to throw this poor shmuck. You have to like spending time with this person - over the years, you're going to be giving him or her as much of your time as you give to a spouse, and more than you give to a best friend. Make sure you share some common loves.
