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."

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
