There are few things that can kill a budding crush. When you find that deal-breaker from your love interest, it completely negates any opportunity for a future date. And sometimes, these deal-breakers can be found right in that person's house. Here are some prime examples.

u/Retsgo asked: Your date is going well so you head back to their apartment. What single item found at said apartment would eliminate any chance of future dates?

Bad parenting.

In his youth, my dad went out on a date, and ended up going back to her place. She opens the door, and there's a toddler in a playpen. Alone. She'd left her child home alone while she was out on a date. My dad told her how f*cked up that was, and left.




I had a date with a girl I'd met through mutual friends.

She was beautiful, interesting, and had a great job. Our date went really well, and afterwards she invited me up to her apartment...

... where she revealed her crack pipe. I'd just recently dated a girl who turned out to be hiding a serious meth problem, and the crack thing seemed even worse.

She told me that smoking crack "wasn't a big deal", but to me, yeah... it kind of was.

So I told her I'd call her, but I actually never did. I still feel kind of bad about it, but again, crack.



Not necessarily dates, but I can't tell you how many times I've been over to girl's/people's places and there has been dog sh*t on the floor which they did not immediately clean up.


Absolutely not.

Fist shaped holes in all the doors.


I misread it as fish shaped holes and that made things even weirder

Why is this getting so many up votes lmao.


Me but with Steve Buscemi.


A candle-lit shrine to Kenny Chesney. Yes, it happened.


What if it's Don Cheadle.



A used condom. It's great you're being safe but you're nasty.


That's a lot of sex toys.

Oh oh wait this just happened to me!! Things went well. Decent conversation, having a good time. Head back to his apartment, start making out. He stops. "So what are you into?"

Umm..."well. Like what do you mean?"

I like to think I'm pretty adventurous. But this man takes me into his closet, where he had another, like, pop up closet. He says, "I'm just going to let you look."

Serial killer vibes going but hey, I'm already in here. Let's see what's in closet number 2.

Sex toys. Hufe sex toys. As long as my arm and definitely as big around. And a huge hook thing I've never seen before in my life.

It definitely killed the mood. He did call and ask for another date but I think we are just into some majorly different things.




Real life story time. Someone I used to work with went on a date with a guy another coworker had set her up with. Things were going well and they ended up going back to his place after coffee to keep chatting.

Walked through the front door and the first thing she sees is a large crystal bowl sitting on his coffee table full of condoms. We're talking like salad serving bowl, FULL of condoms. Guy lived alone. I mean, kudos for safe sex, but just seemed weird. Why so many? And why prominently displayed on the coffee table?


That's concerning.

My picture with a giant red x written across.


I friend of mine actually went to a girl's place,who he had met online. They have only talked a couple of time. The girl had taken a picture from my friends social media account and made a HUGE copy of it and framed it. It was above her bed in the bedroom. My friend made a quick exit.


Immediate deal-breaker.

One-ply toilet paper.


Or paper towels for toilet paper.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
