Relationships fizzle out for all kinds of reasons. Ali Dubrow shares her deal breakers? What are yours?
I’ve recently started a new job for an upcoming relationship show. I don’t want to reveal too much just yet, because what would that leave me with to tell you? Nothing!
There are several components to this show, but they all revolve around one final decision. And when it comes to decisions, there are many components. Am I making any sense? I’ll just spell it out: relationship deal breakers. Whether you’re the type of person who keeps a working list of them (what? that’s completely normal…right?) or not, we all have them. Today, I give you mine.
Arrogance. To me, there’s nothing less attractive than a guy who loves himself just a little too much. Confidence? Sexy. A pompous ass? Nahsomuch.
Not paying on the first date. I’m by no means a traditionalist. But tact is tact, and a guy that doesn’t pay on the first date (not just offering, but actually paying) is a goner. This is a deal breaker I’ve accumulated from experience. I’ll always make the courtesy reach for that check, but that doesn’t mean you take me up on it.
Stage Five Clinger. I’m one of those people who craves her alone time. And I even live alone. That’s how much this gal likes her space. Constantly needing/wanting to be together is a turn-off for me. (And yes, I realize how disgustingly distant I’m coming off right now.)
No sense of humor. I saved the most important one for last, because it’s just that important. I’m a firm believer that laughter is, in fact, the best medicine. That it is a form of exercise. That it’s sexy. Catch my drift? If you’re not funny, I’m out. And I’m serious. (Get it? I’m hilarious.)
What are your relationship deal breakers?
