I guess I would just break it down to intelligence.
Not because other things are unimportant but because if you are intelligent by my lights, you won’t be a bigot or a racist or be one who constantly complains about others, etc.
What’s your “deal breaker” when it comes to relationships?
Flattered into agreeing to his arrangement to meet up a second time, which of course never materialised. Everything is built behind smoke and mirrors in the dating world and although I’ve trained myself not to expect anything, I’m still taken by surprise by the shitty behaviour.
One of my biggest dating deal-breakers is ghosting.
In the interest of your happiness, it could make sense to reevaluate the following deal-breakers that might be holding you back from finding love.
The bottom line here is that there are lots of deal-breakers that don't matter as long as you're into the guy.
And I’m sure there are other deal breakers, such as not liking Dave Matthews Band or baseball or Family Guy…just kidding….no, actually I’m not….yeah, I am…..no……seriously, I’m kidding…..well, maybe not….yes, of course I’m kidding…then again….no, for real this time, I’m just jokin around….perhaps…
Many of us started dating with some sort of idea, no matter how nebulous, of who our dream guy was.He managed to wedge in feminism, tampon tax and abortion rights into the first hour of meeting him. I actually enjoyed the date I’d spent with him – and I’d deliberately managed my expectation so that I was happy with the one-off experience.I think my radar was telling me that was how it should end but I allowed myself to be flattered when I eventually heard from him again. I abhor game-playing of any kind and men are always surprised when I immediately text back or make a straightforward arrangement that I’m actually committed to.He played the ‘I’m not like other guys’ card, which of course means he’s exactly like other guys, only about ten times worse. He didn’t seem to like that I didn’t get in touch after the first date and later the following week he told me off for waiting for him to do the asking. I can’t help thinking that I was targeted for take-down by a guy posing as a feminist.He stunned me temporarily with his good looks and great conversation. This is apparently a thing – these guys are called macktivists.I knew it was too good to be true but I went for it anyway.
