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."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
