No, you do not want to be unfair to your date, but there are certain dating dealbrearkers that might end your relationship even before beginning. Many new relationships are doomed right at the start because of certain dealbreakers, which could be a trait, habit, or personality that distracts you or you just cannot accept and compromise on. Now it could be something that you cannot expect to see in a romantic partner.

9 Common Dating Dealbreakers

2.      2. Bad manners

Well, you want your date to have good traits. But if they are rude and have a bag full of bad manners, you might not want to continue with them. In fact, behavior and personal traits can make or break a relationship. One such bad trait is cigarette smoking. Many people are plain unhappy sitting or dating with someone who smokes. The reason could be awful breath, bad teeth, ruined personality and /or looks, and poor health. Substance abuse could be a dating dealbreaker for many.

3.      3. Unwilling to change

Some people consider the other person’s unwillingness to change as a dealbreaker. Especially if the person is not keen to change for personal growth. This is especially true if they are stuck in a job but still do not want to learn and unlearn and/or expand their knowledge or hone their skills to do better in life. Many people see their partner in those who are open to change and not enslaved to their routine. Enjoying and accepting new experiences can help you avoid this dating blunder.

4.      4. Social media obsession

People obsessed with social media can ruin their relationship easily. Ignoring someone’s presence for social media is a dealbreaker that you want to avoid. This comes to be seen as insulting the other person.

Not caring about your health or showing utter disregard for self is a deal breaker for some people. So it might help to be mindful about your health and show interest in maintaining your self-image or figure by focusing on a healthy lifestyle.

6.      6. Poor communication

If you're dating someone, you expect the communication to flow. But if the other person fails to communicate properly, is unable to explain their interests, and cannot accept or deny things, that's an ultimate dealbreaker. You cannot know a person without two-way communication where you speak and they listen and vice versa. Asking all the wrong dating questions could also put a full stop to the relationship.

If a person is untrustworthy because of inconsistent approach, this is a red signal and won’t take your relationship too far. There is bound to be a lot of friction in such a relationship. When you date someone, there is literally no place for friction.

8.      8. Disrespect for others

If someone you're dating fails to respect and value your morals, you may not be able to take the relationship far. Either tell them how to treat you by setting the standard and sticking to them or call it quits.

9.      9. Unfair expectations

The dating game can be a complex challenge, especially if there are unfair expectations. Asking for too much or expecting too much from a date might not be welcome for the other person. No doubt, this could be an easy dating dealbreaker. Never expect your partner too go above and beyond for you.
