Shared mutual interests are a pretty good place to start when navigating new relationships.

And while couples don't have to agree on everything, dating someone new can be exciting as the people explore their new romantic prospects together.

However, there are some things that Redditors are quick to dismiss about a potential romantic partner.


Curious to hear from strangers online, Redditor RAMORAMORA asked:

"What is the pettiest reason you can't date someone?"

It started out with promise until things took a turn.

The Critic

"I literally re-thought about my relationship with my ex when we went to the zoo (I paid for everything, tickets, parking, food, gift shop, etc which all wasn’t cheap) and he had the nerve to say our trip to the zoo was 'boring.'"

The Artistic One

"Wasn't my pettiness, but a girl I went on a few dates with wouldn't date me because she wanted to be the 'artistic' one in the relationship and she was worried that me being a musician would spoil that for her."

"Edit: wasn’t real deep into it, it was just a couple of dates. I don’t feel negatively toward her. She was a nice enough person lol. Also, music isn’t my career, more of a passionate hobby. I work in IT by day."

The Obsessed Fan

"Ended things with a guy over various other reasons, but the most annoying was how many times he told me that 'He'd leave me for Miranda Lambert in a heart beat.' Which okay, I get it some people have a 'list' of celebrities they'd leave their S/O over, mostly as a joke. But this was like everyday, just randomly said not related to the conversations we were having at the time, and he meant it. He made sure I understood that if for some god forsaken reason Miranda Lambert walked in through the front door, I was gone."

The Pete Owner

"Only went on one date but he named his cat Creamy, and the way he said it grossed me out."

– GoBanana42

A Matter Of Taste

"She didn't like museums."

– AyUnit

The things people do are, well, not for most people.

​Come Again?

"Inability to form a coherent sentence in text."

– leg00b

Mind The Volume

"She talks to people like they're a hundred meter away from her"

– friededs3

What A Mess

"She wouldn't clear the excess time off the microwave display."

– spenghali

Life On A Sitcom

"She insisted on hanging out at home. She lived with like 6 people, and they always had friends over. I felt like a bf extra on Friends or Seinfeld."

– NewEnglandRoastBeef

These Redditors couldn't get past being on a first-name basis.

Too Southern

"My grandparents were very southern. When I was a kid, I spent the night at their house and heard them…wrestling. I heard my grandpa say my grandma’s name, Sarah, but with his accent he said 'Ooh Say-ruh!'”

"I met a girl named Sarah who was also southern. When she introduced herself as 'Say-ruh' I had to nope out. It just gave me the heebie jeebies."

– Sp3nc3r420

Nope To The Name

"Rewind to college, me and my friends are out at a bar. My buddy Dave and I are seniors and his sister is a sophomore, and just turned 21 so she's out with us. We are having a good time and look over and his sister is chatting with this guy at the bar. Fast forward an hour or two and they are still talking, except she's basically on his lap and they're making eyes at each other. 1:30, last call, we are getting ready to go and checking to see if she is going home with this guy or coming with us. She's not there. We look around and she's sitting with her girlfriends at a table. We collect her and as we're walking out I ask what happened to the dude."

"Turned out his name was Dave. I can't go home with a guy with the same name as my brother."

"Bro got turned down because of his first name. Savage."

– YoureInGoodHands

Hi Grandpa

"She had the same first name and last name as my grandpa."

– Fit_Sheepherder_3894

We'll admit while some of these reasons may be petty, they're pretty understandable.

We are in a fragile place right now when it comes to bringing children into this world.

Not everybody is meant to be a parent.

In fact, many people should never be one.

So I find it commendable how many of us acknowledge that and chose not to procreate.

Redditorucinangel wanted to everyone to vent about why children are a "no thank you" in their book of life. They asked:

"What is the biggest reasons why you don’t want children?"

The world is full of crazy people.

It feels like that more and more as I meander in my local shopping center.

But a little crazy I can deal with.

I want to discuss the people who leave an imprint of fear.

The people who lack empathy, remorse... and a soul.

You met many of those?

Redditor playmesomethinnice wanted to see who would fess up and discuss the person or persons that leave us shook.They asked:

"What type of people are you scared of?"

There are just some people who need a good, spiteful talking to.

The amount of poor behavior I witness on the daily is astonishing.

How are we like this in these modern times?

Instead of serving shame, we're serving justice for improper deeds.

Be a better human.

Redditor ValenFrost wanted to share what people need a little bit of bad spotlight. They asked:

"What do you think people actually deserve to be shamed for?"
