Deal Or No Deal
Dating deal breakers are those intolerable characteristics or behaviors in a man that are immediate cause for dumping him. Below we examine seven common deal breakers to determine whether it's wise to get over your hang-ups or tell him to beat it.
The Chronically Late Guy
Why it's a deal breaker: A man who is consistently late, regardless of any explanation, is subliminally sending the message that he doesn't care enough about seeing you to show up on time — a clear sign that he isn't worth yours.
The Petite Prince
Why it's a deal breaker: As women, it's natural to want to feel protected and when the guy you're dating is shorter (or gasp, smaller) than you, it's hard to imagine how he's going to successfully defend your honor against that muscle-head making cat-calls in the bar. It's also worth noting that your enthusiasm for your favorite 4-inch Siegerson Morrisons may wane if they cause you to loom over your beloved. (And every one knows that flats just don't make your legs look the same.)
The Mama's Boy
Why it's a deal breaker: After a hot date, he invites you in for coffeeâ€¦and his parents join you.
The Wooly Mammoth
Why it's a deal breaker: Although manscaping has become a card-carrying member of American lexicon, sadly, not all men have hopped on board the waxing/trimming/shaving train. While facial hair on men is sexy, there's just something not all together right about running your hand down his back through a forest of hair.
