[rebelmouse-image 18344990 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18359510 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18344992 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18347334 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18347311 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18354716 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359514 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18349995 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If he claps when the plane lands.

No one wants to hear it

[rebelmouse-image 18359515 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18351962 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They label themselves by their Myers Briggs results

Guess you will have to live with that sound

[rebelmouse-image 18346351 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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?

[rebelmouse-image 18348625 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18359517 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18357787 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18346556 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18359519 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Better get an extra doughnut

[rebelmouse-image 18359520 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18350104 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
