Redditors Share Their "They Were Attractive Until..." Stories About People They've Dated

Don't let people who claim they don't care about looks fool you- good looking people get all the breaks in life, and the lovelorn will often go to extremes to make an impression on someone they find physically attractive.

He took his shirt off, and he had a tattoo of a tarantula on his abdomen.

I have severe arachnophobia.

It was a bad night for both of us.   -via choixpeau

And yet there are limits to a person's attractiveness, limits usually reached when a hottie does or says something horrendous, and once the smitten party reaches their limit they discover pretty people can turn ugly in a flash.

She was attractive until I went to her house.

I was seeing this girl for a couple of weeks, and it seemed like we were hitting it off. She was witty, pretty, and seemed genuinely nice. On our third date, she invites me back to her place, and I agree because duh.

We walk up her driveway, and as she's unlocking the door, she mentions that her house is "a little messy." So I'm expecting a place that looks actually lived in. I grew up in a pretty messy house, so I tell her not to worry, I'm sure it's fine.

She opens up the door, turns on the light, and what I see next will haunt me for the rest of my life. She was one of the worst hoarders I've ever seen. Wall to wall stacks of flattened cardboard boxes and other useless s#%t, with just a narrow pathway zigzagging through the living room. The walls looked like someone smeared a lasagna all over it several times and just let it dry. The carpet squished as I stepped inside. God only knows what that mystery liquid was. And the smell? Oh god, the smell. My sense of smell is usually pretty weak. I pretty much have to rub things in my nostrils to smell something, but I could smell her house. I could REALLY smell it, and suddenly I was really glad I normally can't smell things. I'm fairly certain some poor animal had died somewhere in the house.

I immediately turned around and noped outta there.    -via quiet_neighbor_kid

Sometimes this change of heart comes when the person says something stupid or acts like a jerk, other times things turn ugly when you finally go to their house for the first time. But worst of all are the fine looking folks who try to control you after just a few dates:

Started dating a guy and the first couple of dates were perfect. Third date he picks me up from my place, I was wearing a dress that was about two inches above knee length. Two minutes later he comments that it would've been more decent if my dress was knee-length and that he "would've demanded that I go back and change it if we were deeper into the relationship". I say "you know what, take me back home". His face lights up as he turns and starts driving back thinking I will be changing the dress.

As we arrive at my place I leave the car and tell him he can keep himself company for the rest of the night.
