Advice about finding a business partner?

What advice can you give me about finding a business partner? I seem to be faced with two issues. The first is finding someone who is interested in the business I'm trying to start and who compliments my skills. But more importantly, how do I decide if they're trustworthy, reliable, and we share the same objectives and can work well together?

It's a part-time business I'm trying to establish while keeping my day job. I've got a good idea, I've made a lot of progress on my own and I can probably self-finance it if I can find a partner willing to work for sweat equity until it's established.
So far I've tried networking and asking friends and relatives for help finding someone. I am worried about finding someone, but not as much as I am about finding the "right" person and establishing a successful working relationship with them.
