Maybe you both share different values or beliefs that you just can't overlook, or the age gap was just too much?
Also, does having sex earlier in the relationship make you fall for someone faster, or are you totally unaffected by sex?
I guess I am referring to the "Romeo-Juliet" scenerio, to clarify/deaded my question with cliches...

No. But I have discovered it wasn't going to work out, with someone I had fallen for. I screen girls during the dating phase. So if we reach bf/gf status I've already fallen for her, we have good chemistry, I have a pretty good idea of her personal beliefs and who she is in general as a person. It's only when something peeks through that I missed early on or there's a deal breaker I wasn't even aware I had.
Like I dated a girl back in college that I didn't notice it for awhile, but she talked shit about her friends. I knew she gossiped a bit. Spend time around any group of girls. That's bound to happen. But she and I were at her house one day, when she started ragging on a close friend who wasn't in the room. In that moment I felt disgusted by her. With that being a core aspect of who she was I just knew it wouldn't work.
Being a good friend and showing true loyalty matters to me a great deal. So seeing her not show loyalty to a friend like that bothered me. That was the beginning of the end for me.2

I did and he was at least 2 decades older. It wasn't that tho, his world was completely far from mine. He was a big socialite and bushiness man while I was just out of college and looking to start my life on my own, make a name for myself. He wanted to help me by giving me a job and having me live with him but I wanted to be on my own for a long while.1
