Forming a connection with someone is a challenge.


There's a multitude of personality types, with an infinite array of hobbies, interests, passions, dreams, and quirks, that it can feel almost impossible when you're out there dating. Fortnuately, if you stick with it long enough, know what your standards are, and hold true to your values, you'll be able to form a real love connection.

And then there's these folks, who felt the need to call it quits over something that, honestly, didn't even matter that much.

Reddit user, u/High_Sleep3694, wanted to hear why you turned someone down when they asked:

What was the pettiest reason you refused to date someone?

Loud, Observable Traits

There are some traits people carry with them like a sad, old piece of rotting luggage, flopping it down on the table for everyone to gawk upon before the appetizers re served. You either are okay with it or, as these people quickly decided, bail out before it gets you.

That Would Irritate Any Decent Human

My mom stopped dating a guy because he unfastened and refastened the velcro on his shoes throughout an entire movie.

What A Dummy. Everyone Knows They're Limes.

When I found out that he thought lemons were unripened oranges

I Guess I Don't See A Big Problem With This One

All The Words In Every Text He Sent Were Capitalised. Trust Me, It Got ANNOYING.

Learn Something!

He was awful in a trivia game we were playing. I mean, really bad, like it was his first day pretending to be a human on Earth and the aliens hadn't briefed him sufficiently.

The Littlest Things Can Turn You Off

Some stuff you can overlook, like maybe the way they hold their spoon and fork.

Other things are impossible to overlook, like...the way they hold their spoon and fork.

Goes both ways.

Her Name Is Anne, Guys.

Everytime I touched her, I would smell of egg. Like holding hands, egg.. Hug her, my shirt would smell of egg.

Strangest bit was, she didn't smell like that whatsoever.

Also, when I broke it off, the egg smelling stopped. So IDK.

Just. Let. Me. CHEW.

Every time I took a bite of food he asked me a question, after which he stared at me while I finished chewing.

The date went on like this for an hour, he had a supernatural sense of poor timing.

Wearing Your D-Bag Flag

He wore a Bluetooth piece in his ear. The constant blue light blinking from the side of his head was too much for me. Another guy would text "dame" instead of "damn". It wasn't a typo either, it was every time.

The Pettiest Of The Petty

Then there's these reasons, where the person must have been having a bad day or maybe they hadn't had dinner yet, when they looked at what the other person was saying or doing or existing and thought, nice and loud in their mind, "Nope."

Just FINISH Your Thought

Every single text of her ended with '...'

I just couldn't do it man

Look At That Shimmer

His hair was prettier than mine.

Now THIS is petty. Love it.

You Can Never See Past The Name

She had the same name as my mom.

S_FrogPants

I went out with someone who has the same name as my cat. I brought him back to my house and the second I got home I greeted my cat and the guy looked at me and I knew right then and there that I couldn't do this.

Keep it up.

You'll find your true partner someday.

And don't ever feel bad if you break up with them over something silly or petty. People need to fix how they hold their spoons and forks, anyway.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
