What are your deal breakersPage 8 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

Sniper, maybe it's the 308 that's prompting weenie jokes here-- Maybe they'd like the Win458, or the mighty 50BMG?

Among my inventory, and this list certainly isn't all-inclusive, I have a .50 BMG, a .338/378 Weatherby Magnum, two .416 Remington Magnums, a .375 H&H Magnum, a .338 RUM, and several other boomers. I also have a .500 Linebaugh revolver, a Savage Striker (handgun) in .308 Winchester, and a Lone Eagle in a .35/444 wildcat.

Frankly, I never had much interest in the .458 Winchester Magnum; although, the .458 Lott seems somewhat interesting.

hmmmm hate the whole "deal breakers" thing just cuz an ex used to use it. We got in a relationship we didn't make a deal!

So using the term "deal breaker"
Bumming money off of me on a first date (yeah that's attractive)
Sending confusing signals
Planning our life together after 3 emails
Being untruthful about anything
Making racial or other comments that show their total lack of awareness and ignorance

Bad manners. I know, that's pretty broad, but some things you just don't do. Like, say, belching on command.

Oh, and a lack of maturity. Do you really think I want you to interject with giggles and obscene jokes when I try to talk about my day?

And poor hygene, but that's a given.

In meat reality (real world as some call it) :
Deal breakers are :
Too busy chicks , if I have to hunt my girl down she aint my girl.

Emotionatly distant.
Breaking dates at the last minute .
more than 3 (young) kids
BAD KIDS!!!!! the kind that yell, scream and break things and havent learned manners fitting their age.

Red flags are:

Too many people know her , no matter where you go you run into people that know her .
Too many guy friends , not a deal breaker but it is a redflag .
Kids all have different fathers .
Does not like PDA's , could mean she does not want people to know you are together .

Online Deal breakers:
looking for shorterm
looking for friends
looking for hangout buddies
looking for genorous man <---= Gold digger alert !!!!!
looking for Financially stable <-----= Gold digger alert.
looking for penpals
looking for intimite incounter <----= 15 years ago I never thought this would be a deal breaker.

This reminds me of a recent incident I had a with someone I was interested in...That is, until I discovered a serious case of bad breath. It just turned me right off.. As for "yeah, like, oh my gawd!" we all do it from time to time so it's no big deal really. Bad breath can be a sign of other problems and smoking.......I don't have to get into.

Here's another one that happened to me in the first week of January:

She: "Do you know my rates?"

Me: "What do you mean?"

She: "$300/hour, and $250/half-hour."

I did not meet her via this web site - but I did meet her through a NORMAL (not an "exotic services" type) profile at another site. She was and still is a hooker. Argh!

OT: I also do feel a bit sorry for her. She was quite pretty, but she has gone downhill and turned into a crack-whore. I know this because I have been able to find her subsequent profiles on other web sites set up at various times over the past month. I went looking because I did want to help her - which she has refused. The police seem unable or unwilling to catch her - as that is the only way that could lead to her getting the help she obviously needs. I did report her. I have known people who occasionally have taken drugs, but this one is clearly self-destructing. This would be tragic if it weren't self-caused. She turned to hooking after losing her legitimate job (if I believe her), but I think she might have been a teenage runaway (now about 25 years old) and doesn't know anything different.

Someone who clearly needs to lose some serious weight. Someone that looks way older then their age. And someone, online anway, who wants the opposite of what they say. And overuse of!

Oh yes ... DISHONESTY, deceit, lying ... whatever other word you can substitute for just not being truthful has to be the number one biggie. If you are a "two-timer" and you haven't told me, that also counts for being dishonest!

Hi "picker"

OT... There's a real deal breaker going on over in the following thread:
"i just tested her panties...both positive for do i do now?"

Also there's some lady over there that thinks I'm picking on xchuck, so some of you may want to go over there and save him from me before I eat him alive! Mmmmm ... he'd be so yummy! OMG ... did I write that? (Whew ... running quickly to get a napkin to wipe up the drool.)

Can't find a picture of you "picker" ... maybe I'd be drooling over that too? Ah well, what can I say ... I'm a "lover", not a "scraper".

Where the heck are you finding all these ladies who are doing the stuff on your list? Hopefully you are finding this stuff out about them way before you spend too much time with them.

Here's the deal (no pun intended)

Religious fanaticism
Political conservatives
Very Overweight
Divorced with kids
Divorced more than once if no kids
bad teeth
poor health
alchoholic/likes to get drunk
chewing tobacco or excessive smoking
lazy/no job
litterbugs (just too lazy to throw trash in a receptacle or use an ashtray)

I think that pretty much sums it up. I admit I am picky but I only need to marry ONE man.

Let's see here...

If I see this on any POF profile, I'm hitting hit the back button. I'm not going to raise another man's kids.

Being addressed as "Papi".
A major put-off. If I date a woman who thinks that it's a good idea to address me as that, then I'll remind her once, and only once, that I am not her dad. Being addressed by her as if I'm her dad seriously creeps me out. If she gets upset or tries to do it again, then I'm dumping her on her ass.

Sorry, not my thing.

Degrees in either Psychology, Nursing, Social Work, or Education.
It gets real boring when around two-thirds of the POF women with a college education are studying for one of those degrees. I prefer someone who's studying something a little bit more challenging, or at least something different.

Drug users.
I'll just say that I won't allow my money and stuff to turn up missing for some reason.

Leading me on to believe that we are dating, and then telling me later on that you just want to be friends.
If you want to be just friends with me, then please let me know at the very beginning (or on POF) before we first agree to meet. But if you say that we are dating, then we are dating, otherwise I am severing all ties with you. I am not going to waste my time with that kind of indecisiveness and deception, when I could be with a woman who really does want to be my girlfriend.

That's it for now.
