Please would you add to my accumulating list of deal-breakers? Throughout my travels I've accrued some good ones, not just mine, mind you, and would like to see the list grow. To summarize, a deal-breaker is a trait, personality or otherwise that brings any question of the possibility of a romantic relationship with the haver to a screeching, glaring, squelching halt. A Deal-Breaker is unique in that it only relates to romantic relationships. One might put up with a deal-breaker trait in a friend but when it comes to love, you just. can't. hang. For inspiration I'll list a few of my personal favorites:
Fake flowers (possession of)
Overuse of internet/text message abbreviations ie: lol, omg, btw concurrent with lack of irony (key point)
Matchpoint, the film by Woody Allen (appreciation of)
Unfortunate last names (quick check: would you ever want this name to become associated with you?) Special credit given to those that sound like a bodily function, bodily excretion or body part
If this net I'm casting catches some good fish I'll post a full list.
