What are some of your dealbreakers?

aside from the obvious (cheating/abusive)

like... poor hygiene? momma's boy? jobless, carless? etc

the guy i'm seeing is a great guy, but it slightly irks me that he doesn't spell words correctly. i mean, he's not terrible but he always puts your where there should be a you're. he wrote brake for break. LOL. it's not a dealbreaker it's just a pet peeve i guess. definitely doesn't detract from everything else that is great about him :)

now if he were a text speech speller, i just couldn't. i kant tlk 2 guyz tht spell lyk dis n shyt.

  • I sometimes mispell, but my husband does the same thing, seen/sean no/know and so on..
    I would say not brushing the teeth, not cleaning, no job or more than 1 baby mamma! LOL

  • I stopped dating a guy once because his toilet was disgusting, LOL! I should also add that spelling and smarts don't always go hand in hand, sometimes your hand is working faster than your brain!

  • Off the top of my head: smoking, drinking too much, drug use, felony convictions (I'm willing to hear them out if they can convince me it was like self defense or something), having kids they never see and/or don't take care of, living at home with parents, no job, no car, too many divorces, having kids with a bunch of different women. That's all I can think of right now.

  • smoker, jobless, carless, bad hygiene (esp teeth), criminal record, drug use, gamer.

  • If I was ever single again. Deal breakers would be. Smoker, drinking excessively. Drug use. Having kids under 18.  Not having good hygiene.  To many bill/in debt. No job or no money coming in to pay bills. Having a criminal record. 

    The being a smoker alone would stop me from dating him right off the bat.  Me now DH still smokes and I hate it.

  • Bad Breath, smelly ass (LOL!), lives with his Mother, spends more on beauty products than me, spends more time in front of a mirror than me, has no manners, is obnoxious, drives a girly car, cannot fix things himself, knows nothing about how a car works, cannot change a tire. Cannot build something out of wood. Does not have a job. That's all I can think of quickly....I'll get back to you. :)
