These 20 People Refused To Date Someone For The Pettiest Reasons And Shared Why With Everyone Online

Published 2 years ago

Sometimes the potential love interest says or does something that becomes an ‘instant no,’ and you already know that the two of you won’t get past the talking stage. These are typically dubbed ‘red flags’ or the ‘instant turnoffs.’ And often, they are pretty reasonable, such as bad hygiene, lack of manners, anger management issues, big ego, and whatsoever. If partners’ attributes don’t align, these traits can be baneful to the relationship and induce future conflicts.

Yet, we all have things that might drive us a little kray kray. Or annoy the heck out of us. And the reasons might vary from very sound to downright silly and trivial. The folks in this online thread revealed some of the pettiest reasons they refused to date somebody. And oh boy, is it bad that I can relate to some of them? See for yourself and let us know if you could justify any of them. Have you ever refused to date someone for a silly reason that you simply couldn’t overlook? Leave a comment!

My grandparents were very southern. When I was a kid, I spent the night at their house and heard them…wrestling. I heard my grandpa say my grandma’s name, Sarah, but with his accent, he said, “Ooh Say-ruh!”

I met a girl named Sarah, who was also southern. When she introduced herself as “Say-ruh” I had to nope out. It just gave me the heebie-jeebies.

#5 Gonna Eat Whatever I Want, Whenever I Want

The idea of never having Nutella or Snickers again – or risk killing my partner with a kiss – is too much.

I had a guy break up with me in high school because God told him to… I was like, uh okay, guess I can’t argue with that one.

She said I drove slow on our date. She likes men that live “dangerously”

It snowed heavily while we were at a fancy dinner. I was in my father’s car because I had just gotten back from Iraq.

She called me a week later, I said I need a woman that is more down-to-earth.

I almost broke up with a girl when she was trying to be seductive and yanked my book out of my hand and closed it losing my spot.

#13 Selfiegram

If their Instagram is nothing but selfies, especially if they’re striking the same pose in every shot. I had a match like that and it honestly creeped me out.

#14 Eating Pizza “Separately”

Image source: Breadrozt, Sam DeLong

She ate pizza with her hands. No, not like you think. She would scoop up the toppings in a messy pile and like an animal, claw them up and eat them, then rip the bread and eat it. We were at a fancy Italian place and I got horrified.

#15 Arm-Swinging.exe Not Found

I broke up with a pretty hot girl when I was younger because she didn’t swing her arms when she walked. It just looked weird and reminded me of a gorilla. Really stupid reason I know, but it just looked so stupid and I couldn’t overcome it.

#16 Question Everything

Image source: Pennaflumen, Ivan Radic

She did that thing with her voice, where every sentence she said ended with a question mark.

Follow-up: Since so many people have asked, she was not Australian. She’s American.

Live, laugh, love style home decor.

#20 Apple Juice Is Life

Image source: pbspry, Glenn Robinson

I instantly noped out of an otherwise fine blind date when she ordered apple juice – off menu – at a fancy restaurant. 19-year-old me only knew apple juice as a toddler’s drink, and I just couldn’t get past it.

I’m no longer that petty. But I did make the mistake of mentioning this to my wife once, many years ago. And she now makes a habit of ordering apple juice whenever we’re at a fancy restaurant, just to see if I squirm.

Violeta Lyskoit

Violeta is one free soul. She feels the most alive when traveling to new places and seeing the beautiful world out there.

Got wisdom to pour?
