Savvy Singles Share Their Unique Relationship Deal-breakers

Everyone has that one thing that they just cannot stand for when they are in a relationship. Here are some dating dealbreakers that you might be able to relate to.

spvcevce asks:

What's your weird deal breaker when dating someone?

What type of pet owner are you...

Has an out of control dog that acts out and they think it's funny/cute. Dogs are great and I get that some have difficulties, but I've known too many people who just let their dogs be totally unruly, jump, bite, bark for ages, while they just laugh. It says more about the human than the dog. The dog is just responding to the signals it gets.

Stand your ground

They litter? It's a no from me dawg...

F* litterers.

Sounds like needy

constant texting

I like my space and being texted now and then is nice, but if I say that I'm working on something (like a big project) and he's constantly barrage me with, "Hey are you still working? Hey are you studying? What about this? What about that? Hey. HEY. HEY " All within the span of two hours, sorry bud, that's too much for me.

Wait so, your deal breaker is automatically everyone?

I need a girl with standards. If she's willing to date me, then God only knows what other trash she's been associating with.

Get real!

Too much honest belief in zodiac signs and their horoscope. No it's not because I'm 'such a Libra' I just don't feel like doing that today, Lisa.

He's an animal!

Open mouth chewers. I'm sorry, but I don't want to see what your food looks like. And don't want to hear smacking noises.

For your safety

If they don't wear a seat belt. Drives me mental. I will turn down an absolutely perfect man if he can't f* put on a simple seatbelt

She comes with a decibel max out level

Loudness, I genuinely dislike someone who is overly loud. I will not date someone who yells when they talk lol, and I also dislike smoking.

The name game

I refuse to date any guy with the same name as my dad or brother. Idk it would just be too weird.

Big warning sign

If he claps when the plane lands.

No one wants to hear it

Trashing his "crazy" ex. It's just not a good look. Either a) he isn't over her, or b) they had a dysfunctional relationship which makes me think dating him probably sucks. There might be the odd exception to this rule, but I just generally don't want that kind of dramatic energy in my life.

That explains everything...

They label themselves by their Myers Briggs results

Guess you will have to live with that sound

I never noticed until after 2 years of dating that my SO scrapes his teeth on his fork when eating. Had I noticed earlier, I would've ended it with him. (I'm in too deep to care about that now though!)

why so aggressive?

If they punch themselves in anger or frustration... That's a little too intense for me to deal with. I'll politely find the door.

Be your own person!

Being indecisive. "I dunno, what do you wanna see/do/eat?" Too much of that, and I'm out. I'd rather have someone who has interests, and is vocal about them.

No voices

Anyone who tries to act cute by putting on a child voice. I can't put into words how annoying it is.

Sounds like a mess

If someone seems to only have friends of the opposite sex and there's clearly romantic interest from many of them, that's a big no. Call me insecure or whatever, but I don't wanna be part of someone's harem. I've been there before and it only made me miserable. I'd rather be alone than stuck in that hell of empty promises, false hope and uncertainty.

Die hard music fan

Mismatched tastes in music. I can't be listening to some whack s***. Sorry.

Better get an extra doughnut

They have to have a squishy waistline. I'm barely 5 feet tall so naturally when I go to hug a guy it's around waist. I hate feeling like I'm hugging a concrete pole because it's just so uncomfortable.

Grammar people!

Proper usage of "your" vs. "you're."

Our interactions with strangers can be pleasant – whether it's a fellow customer at a store smiling at us or talking sports or other mutual interests with a friendly bartender.

Deciding to foster a child, while clearly admirable, is the furthest thing from a no-brainer. So much consideration must go into the decision to provide safety and security to a child who hasn't always had it.

Who knows us better than our parents?

A lot of people, in fact. Not every person's relationship with their parents is perfect, and sometimes people have reasons why they hide things or choose not to be entirely honest that are perfectly valid. It takes a lot of courage to be open––especially if the environment in which we grew up wasn't exactly ideal.

That's what we were reminded of after Redditor Magical-Potato-Chips asked the online community,

"What's something you've wanted to tell your parents but won't because it'll break their hearts?"

Siblings can be problematic to say the least. And as much as we love our family, they can be the most aggravating people any of us know.

The history of the bond and twisted relationships between sibs is long, complicated and chuck full of family fun.

I know by brother and I alone could fill an anthology. Imagine if we all put our stories together?

That's all anybody would talk about.

Redditor u/lew939 wanted all the siblings out there to share a tale or two by asking:

Siblings of Reddit, What does your sibling do that irritates you the most?
