The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back


I've been working on a project and have had to ask a bunch of men what their deal breakers are when it comes to dating and relationships. The most surprising, yet most practical, deal breaker I've heard so far is "if she has a major STD, like herpes or AIDS." I actually laughed out loud. I don't know why, but I thought it was really funny. But in this world today, you can never be too careful. No!!! I forgot. .... the most surprising was the man who said that a woman with a terminal illness is a deal breaker. He ultimately changed that answer with the fear that people would think he's an @sshole. Ya think??? I've been getting such a kick out of hearing the perspective of all these guys that I was thrown for a loop when one guy asked ME. What are YOUR deal breakers?? As I've been out of the dating loop for 2-3 years now, it took me a second. Then I found myself stating MY dealbreakers, as follows:


1. A man with an unwillingness to travel.

2. A man with no ambition/drive.

3. Someone who has no desire to expand his horizons to have empathy towards other walks of life.

4. A person who is generally mean and/or rude to/towards servers, homeless people, and animals.

5. Ummmmmmmmmmmm....aaaaaand a man with smaller hands than me.


I feel like all mine were the same. Same theme. Well 1-4 at least lol.


So tell me....what are YOUR deal breakers???

I don't think a person is an asshole for not wanting to start a relationship with someone who is terminally ill. Why would someone WANT to?

My deal breakers off the top of my head:
1) Not physically attractive to me.
2) Small penis.
3) Judgmental. Similar to your:
"Someone who has no desire to expand his horizons to have empathy towards other walks of life.
4. A person who is generally mean and/or rude to/towards servers, homeless people, and animals."
4) Weak personality. Lack of sense of self.
5) Materialistic. Needing to have the latest of everything just because. I think that shows a lack of self. And it's expensive!
