In this column last week, I discussed a variety of different behaviors, traits, and tastes I considered to be “dealbreakers” in friendships and romantic relationships I’ve had, past and present. A few of my choices might be considered silly or trivial by some (must not like Nickelback! Precious Moments figurines nooooo!), while others clearly struck a chord with many of you (the desire for others to have the capacity to appreciate sarcasm and irony is strong in this group, for example). Everyone’s tastes and boundaries are different, however, which is why discussing what exactly constitutes a dealbreaker is so fascinating and revealing.
At the end of last week’s post I asked – somewhat innocently – for you, the reader, to share what your relationship dealbreakers were… and woo boy did the floodgates open. Some of your responses were eyebrow-raising, some were pointed, and some were downright hilarious. But after reading all of them, I was certain of at least one thing: that they needed to be showcased and shared with the world. And so, without further ado, here are the Top 8 reader responses to my question: What, if anything, would be (or are) YOUR dealbreakers?
