I can't date you if…


you’re an unemployed bum. Here’s the thing, if you’re not in school or working (FT or PT), we ain’t happening. I’m not a gold digger, but I just can’t see someone waste their life indoors. I went on a few dates with someone and he told me this: “I ended up borrowing money from my mom to buy her (ex girlfriend) a necklace. When my mum found out, she got pretty pissed off.” Errr… sorry but that’s an instant turn off.

you have only female friends. I’m not saying you’re not allowed to have female friends… but when you tell me your group of best friends for life is all females… umm, yeah.

you don’t have bromance. I’m a sucker for bromances. I think they’re the cutest thing ever. If my man doesn’t have a guy he can consider his brother from another mother… sorry. I think there’s something wrong with you if you can’t make any male friends.

you have an ugly uncomfortable name. If you have the name of any (and I mean any) of my family members, it’s an instant turnoff. I also can’t deal with names I cannot pronounce in a million years, unisex names, an ex’s name, or a name that sounds really feminine.

you can’t get along with my friends. And not even bother to.

you’re Chinese/Korean/Japanese/Vietnamese. Before you get your panties in a knot and brand me as a racist, stop. I am just not attracted to particular Asian groups for many reasons and of my 20 years of existence, I have yet to find one Chinese/Korean/Japanese attractive. (And, as a Chinese girl… you can imagine how many times I gotta turn down Chinese guys without a good excuse).

…  you HATE sushi. Like, not even come to a sushi restaurant with me. Sure, you may not like raw fish but there’s plenty of other dishes.

you’re an extremely scrawny guy and/or shorter than me and/or younger than me. I try not put too much thoughts into physical looks but it’s a deal breaker if your arms are skinnier than mines, and you’re much shorter than me. I also can’t do young guys. Even if you’re one day younger than me, no. Anyone with the birthday before Oct. 20th, 1993 is good to go!

you still have some sort of attachment to your ex. I just can’t… I’ve dated people that kept sentimental things from previous relationships in a box stored in a closet and when I found out, I felt somewhat uncomfortable. They tell me they open the box once in a blue moon but it’s still.. eh. I don’t think I can deal with my SO keeping in touch with their exes. It’s not that I wouldn’t trust him, it’s just uncomfortable. And from previous experiences, I had someone that sexted their ex, and also went back to dating their ex after we broke up… so…

you lack personality and intelligence. If you’re not kind, respectful, humours, adventurous, etc. etc. theeeen… I mind as well be talking to a wall. And hey, you don’t have to go to post secondary but if you’re as dumb as pig, then we’re not going to get along. I have friends that dropped out in 9th grade but is one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever spoken to.

I also can’t deal with “gangster” clothes and personalities. Stop acting like you’re getting money and bitches… you’re not. You’re just a part timer at a construction site – not making any “dough”. If you wear Ed Hardy… nooooo. No, get out. Just leave.

I also can’t deal with “man whores”. If you got a high number, I just feel really self conscious and slightly jealous.


What are some of your deal breakers?
