Lets say you meet a great person, you like just about everything about them, then they tell you something you can't live with, what would be the deal breaker for you.
I have a long list, I'm sure no one is shocked at that.

1. He doesn't like cats.
2. He doesn't like children.
3. He wants me to move somewhere cold.
4. He tells me he cheated on his previous partner.
5. He tells me he has a drug problem/drinking problem.
6. He tells me he has a criminal history.
7. He tells me he is bi or has been with men.
8. He tells me he wants to invite a third person into our bed.

You guys get the idea, tell us your deal breakers.

1. He lives with mom.
2. He doesn't like animals (if he doesn't like cats, per se, I can deal with it. I know my guys can win him over. )
3. He's married, or not completely, totally, unequivocally separated.
4. He hates his family.
5. He unequivocally states that he hates a certain group of people.
6. He isn't intelligent. (Actually, that should probably be closer to the top. I NEED someone that can give me a run for my money in Jeopardy.)

Are you trying to insinuate that SOME men don't lie, cheat and sit around and watch porn and football all day?

Your not serious, right?

Are you allergic? I can't imagine being with someone, even as a casual friend, who wouldn't respect that.

GAH. Even as an "older person" who can't afford to be so picky (ha ha), I can't see associating with someone who would just want to see what happened if I ate something that I'm allergic to.

I'm married, but back when I was dating my dealbreakers were:

1) If he was type A. I am very type B and need someone who is equally as laid back.
2) If he was a sports fanatic. I don't like sports and did not want to be with someone whose idea of a good time was watching the game.
3) Shallowness. I couldn't be with someone who was superficial and shallow.
4) Respect for women. I could never be with someone who ogled women when we were out, spoke about women in disrespectful terms, or treated women disrespectfully.
5) Had to be flexible and not tied down. At that point in my life when I met my husband, I was in my early 20's, and I had no idea what I wanted out of life or where I wanted to live. I wanted a man who was equally as flexible and not tied down--open to relocating, etc. My DH was in exactly the same position and also in his early 20's.

Yeah I know, real winner there. It's not a *huge* deal if I eat gluten- I have celiac but they caught it early enough that there's not enough damage to cause really bad problems. However it does give me heartburn, nausea, indigestion, upset stomach... well.. you know the rest. The guy in question cooked for me and when I asked him afterwards specifically what was in the French onion soup he said, "Oh, just a bit of flour" in a voice where you could just tell he did it to be a jerk. Then he said he just did it because he thought I was making too big of a deal about my celiac and that I just did it because I didn't like it, not because it actually made me sick.

It takes all kind of people in the world, I suppose....
