Relationship deal-breakers

Posted by Ria, 27 Jun 08

The new trend it town that seems to have hit most of my male friends is, whenever one of them meets a woman and shows some form of interest in her, she always does something to push him away. And the deal-breaker seems to be kind of universal - DMF as I like to call it (translation: Do Me a Favor).

"You meet a woman for the first time, exchange phone numbers and next thing, she sends a text message the following day asking for a favor,᾿ went my pal James. And the favor isn’t some small amount of cash - $2000 plus. “If I had any interests in pursing the woman any further, this is usually the time when your phone conveniently has no coverage.᾿

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Ok. We know there is also that woman you meet on Friday and she wants to move in with you latest Saturday afternoon … kinda like the microwave popcorn – ready for consumption within 45 seconds!!! :lol: That’s another deal-breaker.

This leaves my question that begs for answers – What are the most common relationship deal–breakers?

    Kriss said it all. it pays being decent and take things kindly. meeting a woman for the first time and all she is thinking of is your wallet; so sad. That to me IS A DEAL BREAKER. Ladies be decent and sincere; LOVE WILL COME AT ITS TIME.

    Ok easy all. We all can sit and knit pick bout deal breakers, Hell I can think of 1000. I think the real deal here is your own personality. Not all deal breakers are the same. I think the one that we all have in common is TRUST!!! If there is trust to begin with there should be no other probs. With no trust guess what? You can sit there all day and pick out faults. When I was 22 i fell hard for this young lady in her late 20's. I found out she had major issues with heroin. I could of sat there and said deal breaker but i did not. I hung around and gave her my help and support. She got clean in 2 you years. She went back to Brown Law in Rhode Island and now she one of nations top senators. We broke up after she started back at Brown, but you know by stickin around for her it was a life maker. So it comes down to trust thats the deal or life maker. peace!!!!

    Being a single parent I tend to look at single fathers as potential mates, thinking that as single parents we can relate to each other. I went out with this one guy who had 'the 17 year old from hell'! And the guy didn't seem to mind. I hadn't expected to meet him but 'daddy' brought him along on our date...then wanted me to play mommy! Deal breakers for me are: 1. Liars. Why lie about your appearance? If we plan on meeting on Saturday, you can't drop 50 lbs. by Friday! 2. Addicts- drugs, alcohol, any kind of addiction. 3. Lives at home with mommy after 25 or 30. Now, if she's ill that's understandible. If not, you need to get out on your own baby boy! 4. Bad parenting skills. 5. Complainers. 6. Controlling behavior. Did I mention that ol' boy fit into all 6 of the above categories? lol

    Drugs, booze, and the party lifesytle are deal breakers for me. Women who don't know themselves and cannot communicate in a calm rational manner are people I don't want to know or know of. Fiesty is not a turn on, it is a headache. What happened to nice and loving women anyways? I don't want a hybrid man-woman either, major deal breaker.

    Dealbreakers for me would be: Not even a smile much less a sense of humor. Not trying to look her best even if it's just nice casual dress. I try to look my best with what little I have, why shouldn't she? Others would include, too serious, too negative, too demanding of wait-staff and others (HEY! My Mother always said you want to know how your woman will treat you when the "new" wears off, see how she treats waiters and other service workers, 'cause that's how she eventually will treat you. That's good enough "country logic" for me! lol) Finally, if a lady doesn't start to "warm up" toward me after a few dates, it's time for me to exit right! There's others, but those are too hard for me to define in any objective way. That's my TWO CENTS Worth (probably worth about HALF that!)

    I'm with you hotrod2009. That texting has got to stop. I figure a man who can only text and not call either has something to hide or prefers to control communication by the "tag you're it" method. Easier to dip out of a text conversation than it is to actually be in a verbal conversation where you don't have time to make up lies on the spot. Poor communicators or people who really don't want to talk to you use text messaging way too much! That's a red flag for me.

    I suspect I will get headaches but here goes. The deal breaker appears to be commitment and courage. When younger, men are courageous but unwilling to commit whereas women are willing to commit fairly easily. Over about 35, the tables turn; men seem more eager to commit and women appear to be far more cautious. As usual there is an exception to the rule: the person who wants to marry you having chatted for 5 minutes on the Internet without even meeting; but these tend mainly to be fraudulent.

    If you are dating someone and they continue with their online dating sites,looking for someone else,something better, that is a huge deal breaker for me. If you click and there is a connection, get outta the sites and give us a chance or get off my island.

    Another good deal breaker is when you meet someone and they only want to communicate by texting you instead of calling. Or they want to call or text you at midnight or early morning hours. Very disrespectful. Being rude is also another deal breaker.

    *Infidelity I guess is another big one? Especially if there is no accountability for a partner's actions. - Yes..even this can be "worked" out but the way a person responds to this factors if I vote them off "my Island" or not.. :)

    These vary from person to person and some people can tolerate certain things that happen within the relationship and stay in the relationship. - Some deal breakers are sort of "a given" but at the top of my list would be Physical/Emotional/Mental Abuse - (Rot in hell). My thoughts? 1. If I keep asking "is it me or is it him: - OUT 2. Near Crazy/Fanatical views on Religion - OUT 3. Bossy - OUT 4. Racist in anyway - OUT 5. Unkept/Messy/Filthy Dirty Person - OUT 6. Loss of friendship, fun, humor - OUT 7. Lack of sex, touching, kissing. I am sorry, but that is a basic necessity to me and if I am going to be with someone who doesn't want me, I would prefer to be single. 8. Loss of friendship, fun, humor Darn! I think that's it.. I think its great to have some deal breakers because falling in love can make us do some stupid things..trust me.. I know :)!

    New trend? Sounds like "gold diggerism" to me. My vote... Asking for money/trinkets....deal breaker. Unclean living/personal conditions...deal breaker. Unruly and/or disrespective children...deal breaker.
