I saw this at the bookshop and thought of you.


I've been dating quite a bit lately, getting back into the game after my divorce two years ago. Much of what I'm trying to do, in addition to getting laid now and again, is discover what I do and don't find attractive in a man outside the context of my ex-husband. While I won't bore you with a list of things that I do find attractive, I have had a few experiences that were immediate "deal killers" while out on dates.

One guy was a 9/11 truther and spent the entire time explaining to me all the conspiracies and why this was all important. I really thought he was cute so when he asked me out again I said yes, hoping that now that he'd gotten his rant out of his system we'd be able to have a normal adult conversation. Despite my constant attempts to steer the conversation in another direction he always managed to steer us back.

"Spitty mouth." Guys who constantly have traces of spit stretched across the edges of their mouth while they're talking. I don't know what causes it, but it's loving gross and makes me want to vomit.

Several guys have eaten like absolute pigs, holding the fork like a shovel, cramming food into their mouths, talking with their mouths full, and, in one case, eating syrup-covered pancakes with his hands.

So, what else automatically rules someone out for a romantic relationship regardless of how hot they otherwise are?

Death before dismount

For me, smoking is an absolute deal killer. It is gross and the stench of them permeates everything making that person and all of their belongings and residence smell like an ashtray.

Smoking killed it for me and one girl. Another girl kept talking about wanting kids soon since "I love babies!" We were freshman in college. Bye bye. Also, general ditzyness has killed it before. If when you talk I don't think you're smart I can't date you.

The woman I was out with decided to share an anecdote about how her ex-boyfriend gave her gonorrhea.

I know it happens, I know it's curable, but dammit don't tell me about your crotch rot on the first date!

I guess I have commitment issues, but after the second date with this girl, she told me that she didn't want me kissing any other girls. I thought that was kind of selfish and awkward. Made me feel like she was trying to trap me or something. It didn't go beyond a 3rd date.

Really bad kissers who approach a kiss like they have to get your whole face in their mouth and then talking about what you want to do in the future (kid-wise) on the first date, in the first 30 minutes. Both were the same guy.
But yeah, a bad kisser is a deal breaker no matter what the other circumstances are. If you're in your mid 20's and still don't know how to kiss, something is terribly wrong. And I think he was a no-sex-before-marriage guy. Ick.

Oh, and one guy asked me to call him daddy once that was the end of that date.

Stupid people, bad teeth. I was messaging with this girl for a while a few years ago who sent me some pictures and she was absolutely smokin'. I should have realized what would happen. but I was 15 and desperately wanted to lose my v-card, and this chick was hot and willing. Well, in her pictures she was never smiling, and I didn't think anything of it. She came to my house and barely opened her mouth when she talked, I cracked a joke and she laughed, revealing the most horrid crooked baby teeth in the whole world. Long story short we went to the mall and she went to use the washroom and I just bailed.

You have some good deal breakers but just a heads up the last thread about these turned into something like this:

Someone Else

The one that springs to mind as the one that annoyed me the most was after we had had few drinks and had just finished seeing a movie - a nice evening so far.

As we leave the movie her telephone rings. In the middle of our conversation she answers and spends 15 minutes talking to her friend about the movie we had just seen, me, and what she was going to do later.

Attempts to get her to kill the conversation were met with increasingly agigated resistance from her.

She liked women as much as I did. While that might be great if you're just wanting to have a threesome, it's not so great if you're actually looking for a relationship. I'm not interested in getting emotionally involved with someone who wants to bring an extra person into the bedroom.

Am I old or just a square?

Not being able to read was one thing. She couldn't read the word "satellite".

Not finding Seinfeld funny. Its the basis for everything I find funny, you can't not find it funny. Or else.

Being rich and blaming all of societies problems on the poor. gently caress you, I grew up poor. Its like saying you hate your mom and someone else agreeing and calling her a bitch. Oh hell naw.

Yes, she said she couldn't be happy with just a guy or just a girl, she would need both. That's where I had the problem.

Saying "I love you" on the first date. That is the mind killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. Also it's not cool.

Also, only talking about yourself on a first date. Totally lame.

A total unwillingness to initiate any sort of dialogue.

Conversations should have a natural flow if they're going to lead to any sort of meaningful relationship. Just because you're an attractive, self-absorbed girl doesn't mean I should be have to guess what random half-baked thought is currently fluttering around in your skull.

Is that a first edition? I'm oddly aroused.

I think the worst was meeting a guy a friend put me on a blind date with and hearing him say "I don't read books...ever" and "Oh, I hate art" was a sign that she wasn't really my friend in the first place.

That is treason, Johnny!

Before I got married, I went out with a few girls that I met on the personals section in craigslist. One girl seemed pretty cool, and we hit it off, so we decided to meet up for dinner. I get there and she shows up with her incredibly vapid trust-fund friend, and she proceeds to text someone throughout the entire meal. Also she was only 19 or 20, which I did not know beforehand. Any of the above would have been a dealbreaker, but all three together? Latah bitch.

Evil baby bunnies cannot be fed solid food until after the first week.

"These are my vampire fangs." Also, she looked at her feet the whole time.

Girl arrived at the date high. Seemed more interested in what kind of car I drove as opposed to me.

Not talking. About anything. At all. Thank god her younger brother insisted on coming along or I would have been bored out of my skull.

Coming with another guy. And sitting with him instead of me and my friends. Then being enthralled by his violent gang sayings. She wanted to be a cop, too.

Saying that I'm "trainable." Older women are creepy.


drat, it feels good not to be in the market anymore. gently caress that noise.

No, her sexuality wasn't the problem at all. I wasn't attacking her sexual preference, just that her attraction to both sexes kept her from choosing one or the other. I don't care that she's bisexual, but wanting both at the same time was a problem.
