Deal-Breakers: People Share Their Top 20 Shallow Reasons They Refuse To Date, Someone

When it comes to dating, there are certain things about a person that some individuals might consider deal-breakers.

Physical appearance often plays a significant role, with individuals placing an excessive emphasis on height, weight, or specific facial features.

A second user added, “I don’t exactly know how to describe it, but girls whose voices sound like they’re constantly asking a question. Certain inflections and tones kind of tick me off. It just sounds odd and unintelligent to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve dated girls much smarter than me, and I know some very intelligent women who sound like this. But to me, it’s just a deal breaker.”

A third user shared, “When they say “You owe me” for mundane tasks. Specifically, when they expect something in return for anything they do and hold it against you if it’s not returned, I appreciate what they did, but I don’t need them to tell me the instant they do something nice.”

(which was really great because that was our first date, and she was really out of my league) When I got home, I texted her that I had a really good time, to which she replied, ‘mE to0, I rEaLy hAd a greAt tym. I HoPe 2 zseeU zOon. XOxo.’ Never saw her again.”

Finally, a Redditor shared, “You don’t have to be rich or even have any savings or assets, but at least have your stuff together enough to pay the bills on time. House doesn’t need to be spotless, but enough care to have work clothes washed. I’m sick of being the only adult in my relationships.”
