Pet peeves

Oh, hell no! Queerty readers sound off on their #1 dating deal breakers

We recently asked our followers on Facebook what their #1 dating deal breaker was and the answers were all over the map. Some were more reasonable than others. Let’s take a look at what they were, shall we?

So the number one #1 deal breaker was definitely smoking. Turns out a lot you just aren’t into smokers. As one person so eloquently put it: “Smokers. Grew up in a house full of smokers. Gross. Not kissing a chimney.”

This was followed by excessive drinking, drug use, and spending too much time on one’s phone. Bad teeth and poor hygiene, too, were common complaints.

Mistreating waitstaff was also no-no:

If they are rude to servers/baristas/ticket takers, wherever we are going on a date. I can’t think of anything more abhorrent.

As was a bad sense of humor:

My last date wore a t shirt with dozens of types of breasts on them “pirates dream,” “pancake,” etc…He clowned constantly, usually about my being a slut and, grabbed guys asses on the dance floor to see if they were tops or bottoms. All of this, stone cold sober. That was a deal breaker for me.

And arriving late to the date… then having nothing to talk about:

Showing up late. I cant stand people who don’t have time management. Also people who can’t keep a conversation going. If I wanted to talk to myself I could have a less expensive date.

Other deal breakers included…

Litter bugs:

If they dropped litter. I would ask them to go and pick it up and put it in a bin, and if they refused I would walk away there and then. It’s completely unacceptable to me.

People who chew with their mouths open:

Loud eaters. If you’re a loud/open-mouthed eater, forget it!

And those who listen to Christmas music outside the month of December:

People who listen to Christmas music outside the month of January. DEAL BREAKER!

Dirty fingernails, self-centeredness, and being a Britney Spears fan were also mentioned as faux pas. As was being a Trump supporter, being a non-vegetarian, wearing Timberland boots, sporting a manbun, and having a star tattoo.

So what’s the takeaway from all this?

Ya’ll are some picky bitches!

But, hey, isn’t that kinda sorta what dating is all about?
