Have You Used These 5 Wacky Dating Dealbreakers

Dating is a dance of computability and desire – but sometimes it a person is just a little to wacky

Dating can be tough, finding the right person who matches what you are generally looking for can be a long process.  While nobody is perfect and they have their quirks, you still have to figure at the how you two will fit in the long (or even the medium) run. With advances in technology, it has become even a harder process. So many people online, yet few are a match. Sometimes you meet some great, maybe even date a short period and then call it off for a perfectly good reason. But have you used these 5 wacky dating dealbreakers?

While in today’s tech-oriented world it seems odd people use Zodiac signs as a guide, but it is true.  In India, you match is an important step toward an arranged marraige. In the US and Canada, 78% of active Bumble users added a zodiac badge to their profile. Many daters see certain combinations of star signs as more compatible than others, which can have a bearing on their decision of whether to approach somebody. And some, if their signs are oil and water, just call it off.

Poor grammar

in a survey of 2,000 people in the dating pool, 71% shared they are turned off by poor punctuation and grammar. If the person’s grammar is awful and barely legible, it’s hard to understand how they’ve managed to lead a functional life.  Some see it as it may show a lack of self-respect or respect for others. There is also the fear of embarrassment when you are hanging out in friend and work groups.

Bad taste in food

The rise of the Insta era has helped us develop our sense of taste, giving us access to delicious food photography, recipes and more. Cunlinary adventures, be it finding the best fried chicken or something more exotic and complicated, has become a priority for a lot of people. While it might appear snobbish, it’s a valid concern if someone doesn’t share this passion with you. Having a guy say, I don’t eat vegetables or order,  a hamburger at a Michelin-starred restaurant can be a true relationship killer. It becomes laborious every time we go out.

Dumb Facebook statuses

The online personality is a reflection of the person and, sometimes, a more accurate one. This is popular deal breaker, where someone’s social media presence is a big turn off and is completely different from how they are in real life.  Someone may be nice in person and a troll online.

Someone addicted to screens

Phone addiction is real, and most suffer from it to some degree. There are people who take it too far, unable to not constantly check their phones on dates and conversations. These people are distracting, rude, and anxiety-inducing. Being glued to a screen prevents the person from seeing their date’s non-verbal behavior. Using them means not giving your undivided attention and being fully present, which is the most potent expression of affection and respect in a relationship.
