People Share 21 Silly Reasons Why They Wouldn’t Want A Second Date

When it comes to dating, it’s completely natural to have specific criteria and preferences for the person you choose to go out with. Compatibility holds significant value, and individuals often have their own unique set of preferences. However, there are certain dating mistakes that can swiftly bring a relationship to a halt. While some of these blunders may appear insignificant, they can surprisingly influence someone’s decision to pursue a romantic connection.

Blank Stare

One user shared, “He stared at me blankly when I said “Republican” when describing one of my family members. I followed up, and sure enough, he literally had no idea what the word Republican meant and didn’t know about our largely two-party system. He was in his late 20’s. If you’re not into politics, that’s one thing, but he had managed to live nearly three decades in our country without knowing basic information about our political system.”

A second user added, “He didn’t re-rack his weights. I will never, for my life, understand why people don’t return/re-rack their weights.”

Animal Facts

A third user said, “She was a volunteer at the Zoo, and when kids asked her questions she didn’t know the answer to, she would make something up and lie. Growing up on Zoobooks and Steve Irwin, I take animal facts seriously.”

This user mentioned, “I went out on a few dates with a guy that I had been really into for months. I was starting to realize he wasn’t the brightest bulb in the room. Then one day, he said he liked watching commercials on TV and that was that.”

A poster recalled, “Went on a first date to the movies. This guy…instead of picking up his drink and lifting the straw to his mouth, he would put his hands on his knees, keeping his eyes on the screen, and lean over to the drink and ‘hunt’ for the straw with his face and his mouth contorted sideways trying to land on the straw. Weirdest sh****t ever.”

Same Names

“A very attractive, fun, smart woman asked me if I wanted to get ice cream with her. I turned her down, but I guess in a way that she felt was flirty, so she kept asking. And finally, I had to tell her I was turning her down because she had both my mother’s first and last name. She laughed a lot and agreed we couldn’t date.”

Bad Body Odour

“She was super hot, but she smelled. I dunno if she didn’t shower or use deodorant, but she just smelled funky. I couldn’t do it. My best girlfriend at the time was like, “Just tell her.” How do you tell a girl you’ve known for a few weeks that she smells bad?!?!  So I just stopped talking to her.  Brilliant.”

Mythical Creatures

Cats Cradle

Weird Angle

Self Obsessed

This poster recalled, “He would wear this hideous brown fake leather jacket. It was so old that the ‘leather’ had started to flake off. He kept stopping to look at himself in windows and saying, ‘Oh god, I look so hot today’ ‘I just can’t believe how hot I look,’ smoothing down his manky jacket, side-eyeing me, expecting me to agree with him. I left so he could be alone with his jacket.”

Every Text in ALL CAPS

One user shared, “Everything was going great, I thought she was an amazing girl, and we’d been seeing each other for two months. Go to her house for the first time, and it was a little messy, but nothing to write home about. Then I go to the bathroom and put up the toilet seat… I don’t think she’d ever cleaned the bottom of the toilet seat, given how disgusting it was. From then on, the only thing I could think about when talking or being with her was that disgusting toilet seat.”

Finally, “They did that thing where they inflect their voice upwards at the end of everything they say as if it were a question after about 10 minutes of talking to them, I was completely done.”
