This myTake will establish some common deal breakers that people consider before they date. Then these deal breakers will be examined, and rated on a scale of 1-10. A rating of 1 being the least offensive and a rating of 10 being an ABSOLUTE dealbreaker.
Deal breaker #1: Unattractiveness
Being physically unattractive puts many at a serious disadvantage while dating. But it makes finding someone very hard at first. This is probably one of the most prominent deal breakers because if a woman/man doesn't find you attractive from the start they kind of write you off as not being an eligible partner.
Sometimes people will not date for ridiculous reasons like "Her toes are too long" or "His head is shaped weird," which is ridiculous! Those people are just extremely picky. Luckily, some people can look past this and see the other things a less attractive person can offer. Whether that's financial security, laughs, or love!
Deal Breaker Scale: 7/10
Deal Breaker #2: She/he has kid(s)
She/he seems mature, smart, funny, and you feel attracted to him/her. Thats great, right? Well, he/she has a kid. If you want to be your significant other's one and only, sorry. This isn't for you.
The attention will have to be split between you and his/her child. If you can live with that, great! But what if the kid doesn't like you? Tt will it undoubtly become annoying when the kid makes you feel like garbage on a consistent basis. That might not be that case, and the kid might accept you and show you love.
Deal Breaker Scale 5/10. (If you hate kids: 10/10)
Deal Breaker #3: Being Broke
This one is controversial. Shouldn't love and forming romantic and intimate relationships surpass petty material wealth? In a romance novel, YES! But here in the real world, sometimes it doesn't work out.
Your partner will expect you to support yourself or help them out very once in a while. Also, who wants to worry about having a financial burden as a problem? This applies to more mature couples. When you are young its okay to be unstable financially at times.
Deal Breaker Scale: 6/10
Deal Breaker #4: Religion
Dating a very religious person can be difficult, especially if that person only wants to date within their faith. For example, this is relevant to dating a Muslim man or woman. If they decide to get serious with you and you are not a Muslim, it is considered "Harram."
For them its something that has been forbidden. But on another level, someone's faith may differ from your's and problems can arise due to beliefs, etc. Its never a good thing when someone is forced to choose between their fiath and love.
Deal Breaker Scale: 3/10
If you are a non-Muslim dating a Muslim, this is 10/10. (Same for other faiths very strict with their beliefs and traditions).
Deal Breaker #5: Hygiene
Would you date someone who smells like garbage? Looks like garbage? Doesn't take care of themselves? Mosst people would probably agree this is extremely undesirable. Hygiene is very important and generally easy to practice. It shows that you can take care of yourself, and that you can present yourself as a decent human being.
