Dating is the most enigmatic and confusing period in a person’s lifetime. Both men and women have expectations and yes, they both talk with their friends about the outcome of a potential connection. But there are signs. Yes, ladies and gents, what you do or don’t do after getting those digits determine whether both your feet are on that futon in their dorm room or just plain getting the boot. Here are the top 10 lists of turn-offs for both genders while entering the initiation and experimental phase of an
interpersonal relationship:

Deal Breakers for Women

10. No sense of humor.
9. Allowing him to ask all the questions.
8. One word replies in text (“lol, :),” “idk,” “yeah,” “okay,” etc.)
7. Being too guarded.
6. Bringing up sexual innuendo and changing the subject.
5. Texting the majority of the date/hangout, especially if she takes long periods to reply back any other day.
4. Flirting with other men while at the same event, and claiming it as “friends.”
3. Talking about her ex on the first date.
2. Negativity.
1. Never believing she’s beautiful when he compliments her.

Deal Breakers for Men

10. Bad shoes.
9. Lack of confidence and lack of originality for a first date.
8. Staring at other women while on a date.
