My SO and I had a very interesting talk about "Deal Breakers" My deal breaker is No Communication and with that is Trust. My SO feels Abuse and Trust would be his. I'd like to see what your POV is so what would be a Total Deal Breaker for you?

-Smoking
-A woman that doesn't want children, even if we have to adopt
-Obesity (A woman that's fit but just built big would not be a deal breaker)
-Alcoholism
-Promiscuity
-A refusal to work or contribute
-A woman that litters or doesn't care about the environment (i.e. is wasteful, drives a Hummer or Escalade)

All I can think of right now.

Are you talking about all tattoos or just the trap stamp and neck tattoos? A lot of people have tattoos these days I feel like a minority because I don't.

-Smoking
-Boring in bed and/or demands too much foreplay/kissing
-Extreme Type-A personality
-Stage 5 clinger
-Lays out too much of her life to the public on social media

As well as all the ones that should just be assumed like STDs, daddy issues, etc.

Besides most of the usual deal-breakers that have (or will be!) mentioned, and assuming I meet someone without any of those that matter to me, there is one other deal-breaker for me:

- lack of sufficient positive deal-maker characteristics.

In my experience, no more than 5% of all prospects lack all the deal-breakers. Of those, 1% to 2% have a good combination of the unique traits I want.

So would you leave if your SO gain 25 pounds? What if he couldn't lose it because of thyroid issues but he was active?
