7155 JiminKY I was dating a girl once who answered her phone while we were in a movie theatre. It wasn't an emergency and it wasn't a "sorry I'll call you back!" hushed thing. It was just her straight up having a conversation on her phone in the middle of a crowded theatre. It infuriated me. Wasn't even able to look at her the same after that.
2427 Schaggy I once almost dated a woman with my Mom's first name. I couldn't go through with it.
3883 Zulu-Cthulhu One upping everything, even negative points. 'If you were bitten by a dog, then I was mauled by a bear' kind of stuff.
3287 internet_babe_tr0ll I used to date a guy who would constantly talk to me about his weight, and how fat/ugly/weird he was. I thought he was fantastic! And I'd tell him so. But after a while I felt like my validation and comfort was something he'd fish for instead of having actual problems with himself, and I felt a little turned off by that.
397 jdrc07 By some random chance I came across a big transit van full of buddhist monks, like in the [traditional orange garb.](http://www.redorbit.com/media/uploads/2015/02/154282280.jpg) So these guys all get out of the van and start wandering around the store I worked at. This girl says something about being scared out of nowhere, I ask her what she's scared of, she says "Those muslims over there". Hard to take her seriously after that(I wasn't really that keen from the start, but that was the final straw).
3225 greenhouse_glasses My ex cited my dislike for mushrooms as one of the key driving factors in our hot mess of a breakup.
669 loeleeta17 He kept referring to me in third person when talking to me. It really creeped me out and just reminded me of some kind of serial killer internal monologue that he was accidentally saying aloud. I bailed pretty quickly.
2711 ElLetdown I was talking to a girl that I was starting to really like while I was at work. She was complaining about how broke she was earlier that day. I eventually mentioned that I was really hungry but didnt have time to leave for lunch and she asked if I heard of Postmates. I hadn't, and when I looked it up there was like a $20 delivery fee. I told her that I'd pass on that and she told me that she was ordering sushi with them delivering. I said "But aren't you still broke?" and her response was "I knowww but I couldn't help myself." It sounds petty, but I couldn't be with someone who didn't have enough self control to at least go pick up the sushi and save $20
2485 Misfits0138 It wasn't someone I was interested in, but one time I went putt-putt golfing with my sister and her then boyfriend. He bragged the whole way there about how amazing he was at putt-putt. Half-way through the outing we were both beating him and he was visibly upset by it. We got to a spot where we were ahead of him because of a bad shot he'd made. I turned around and caught him moving the ball to a better position when he thought we weren't looking. I never trusted him after that. How can you trust someone that would cheat at putt-putt? My sister did break up with him shortly thereafter.

157 mreddit11 Perfume smells like death. No really. It was husky, like aged wood, almost rotting wood. It brings forth vivid images of that cemetary-next-the-retirement-home smell. It was like the rotting wood of a casket. Now if the smell was just yknow "edgy" like darkness or despair, then whatever. But this literally smelt like rotting wood or a dying carcass. Amongst other things, this was difficult to get over.
3195 young-and-mild She was really pretty and nice and funny, but she pronounced breakfast as "breaf-ix". Out of respect to breakfast food, I just couldn't do it.
2024 uniqueusername55656 Told a guy I was seeing that I had seen someone who looked like Vincent Van Gogh. "you mean that guy from Wedding Crashers? He's hilarious!"
2672 Ivytheforestmaiden One guy I dated had Ralph Lauren for pretty much every article of clothing. Shoes were Sperry and he would only buy a brand of sunglasses that were at least $250. He asked where I shop and I told him I go for the clearance rack at old navy, American eagle and other mall kind of stores. It was like I punched him in the gut. "Oh. Well, we will get you in some better clothes." It made me feel like a doll who needed someone to dress her.
391 taaaakeonnnnmeeee He made sound effects when he ate. Not sound from him chewing. Sound effects as in, "nom." It may have been endearing when you were 5, but not now when you're 30
4406 ihatemandymoore I gave this dude a super simple recipe for stuffed jalapeños. It calls for cream cheese, jalapeños, and bacon. Super simple, right? He took it upon himself to mix the cream cheese with NACHO CHEESE. I didn't know this until he complained that it was too watery and it didn't stay inside the pepper, which turned out to be SERRANO peppers, which are tiny compared to jalapeños. AND THEN he had the audacity to ask me angrily why I hadn't told him the peppers were spicy, because he had scratched his eyes and they were burning. I literally stopped talking to him right then and there.

3133 [deleted] He told me thinks it weird that women take up gaming when it's such a male oriented product of advertisement and because of that he thinks women need to have a underlying reason. Like, they want attention, they want to prove themselves in a male enviroment, etc. He couldn't understand wanting to play a game because they like games. This was said very casually while I talked about a game I enjoyed. I was kinda actively pursuing him at the time and it was such a strange "oh...nvm then" switch in my brain.

1317 lunchesandbentos The brother of a friend was a little "too" friendly with his mom and his mom was a little too overprotective of him. He was interested in me and I thought he was cute but his mom would make weird, physical claims on him whenever I was around. He was late twenties by that time. Once, when I was over at their house, she hugged him from behind when he was setting the table, and she said something in their language which, when my friend translated, was that she's never approve of him dating a Chinese girl. My friend brushed it off and didn't think anything of it nor did she think it was directed at me (I'm Chinese). That got too weird for me and I declined all of the dates he asked me out on later. He was real good looking too but... sorry, I don't think that's appropriate behavior for a mother but what do I know, I only have daughters. Anyway, right after him I met my now husband so it all worked out and I think I dodged a bullet. I mean some people might think it's sweet how he and his mom were so close but... that was just icky to me.
