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."

Hilarious moments are blind to timing. They seem to strike at the absolute worst times, when laughing would be completely inappropriate.

Working with dogs is a field like few others. Though a job at a veterinary clinic, animal shelter, or training class may have its moments of tragedy and frustration, the unique hilarity that dogs bring is a real treat.

We're all aware television shows are fake and, heck, even the ones pretending to be real have a certain level of fabrication permeating throughout. That's not why we watch, though, we watch because we want to be invested into believing in a show's characters and their journeys. So when a character is mysteriously removed from a show with zero explanation it can leave a bad taste in our mouths that never goes away.

There's something quite wonderful about finding a loophole and taking advantage of it... especially when you're broke. (Trust me, it could mean the difference between surviving and well, not.)

When I was really poor, for example, I used to go to a Burger King to get cheap burgers with what little money I had. The food was filling and helped tide me over. I eventually found a glitch on the app that allowed me to add two extra burgers to my order. Trust me, it saved me on my worst days. (As you can imagine, I am really sick of fast food now that I'm much more financially stable.)

After Redditor Thym3Travr asked the online community, "What loophole did you exploit mercilessly?" people shared their stories.
