YouSpeak: Dating Deal Breakers

From rudeness and BO to sleeping around


Type the words “dating deal breaker” into a search engine and up pop dozens of examples, ranging from ugly feet, cheating, and substance abuse problems to negative outlook, stinginess, and laziness. There are lists of dating deal breakers for the over-50 set (poor health and financial instability being the top vote-getters) and a website exclusively on the subject of dating deal breakers. (Our personal favorite is the woman whose date picked her up in his truck with a dead deer in the back). Eww.

This week’s “YouSpeak” asks: “What are your dating deal breakers?”

“YouSpeak” typically appears on Mondays. If you have a suggestion for a topic, leave it in the Comment section below.

    Who the heck breaks up with a girl for wearing a one piece?

    The way this topic was discussed (editing/production) & the students featured make bu look terrible and immature. I’d be ashamed to have this available on the internet if i were them… maybe they’ll figure that out in 10 years.
