This Is One Man's (Ridiculously Long) List of Dating Dealbreakers



OK Cupid member Emily was messaged by another member who was interested in her, based on her profile. When she checked his profile, she found a "don't message me if" list that essentially rules out every female in all of humanity.

Emily posted the list on her Tumblr for her readers to see. I imagine that all single, hoping-to-become-coupled females who read Emily's post burst into tears from sheer hopelessness before they reached the last item on the list. How could one go on, knowing that they can't measure up to the expectations of this sweet prince? Via 22 Words.

What bothers me about this list, is that other than showering every day (I make an exception for summer), I'd make a pretty good date for this guy. But guys with long lists of turn offs... are turn offs.

He doesn't seem to be aware that women sit in the outside seat when riding public transportation for safety reasons.

My personal favorite: "You can't see your own biases." Indeed.

Yes. But also society has changed so much that if I was single now, it would be necessary to be specific instead of making assumptions. For example, polyamory is now a thing, whereas I hadn't even heard of the word until a few years ago. When I was single, there was a presumption of monogamy. I wouldn't even need to bring it up with a potential partner. I don't think that's accurate anymore.

Oh yeah, the things you look for in a partner change considerably as you mature. The qualities I looked for in a husband at twenty were laughable compared to the few but crucial requirements I had the last time I got married at age 50.
