In today’s society, it’s no surprise to find everyone looking for romance. We’re all seeking that person who’s going to make us feel whole. We’re all on the hunt for that certain man or woman who will complement us perfectly.
Of course, it goes without saying that if we have an idea of all the attributes that special person should have, we also have some pretty clear thoughts on some traits they shouldn’t possess. Basically, we have a number of deal breakers that can cause us to walk away from a potential mate.
Of course, deal breakers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, etc. For some people there are physical aspects to a person that will make them pump the brakes in a relationship. For instance, maybe the person has dandruff. For others, it could be some quirky personality trait.
Lots of women have deal breakers when dating a man. For instance, many women won’t date a man who is shorter than they are. (A female friend of mine once explained this to me, saying that you often feel like you have to protect them when you go out, as opposed to the other way around.) It’s often a deal breaker if a guy doesn’t have a car. Or if he’s still living with his parents past a particular age. Yes, women do indeed have a lot of deal breakers. (And maybe that’s the way it should be. After all, a girl can’t be too careful.)
In a similar vein, guys will also sometimes close the book on a relationship because of a perceived dealbreaker. One example might be a girl whose father is a reputed mob boss (and he’s made it clear that he hates the guy). Or if she’s insanely jealous of all other females – including the guy’s relatives.
Basically, almost anything can be a deal breaker (and many of them are funny). In fact, it’s probably a good thing that we all are aware of certain things that we don’t want to deal with in terms of romance. It will likely keep things from becoming messy later.
