You Really Need To Lower Your Deal Breaker Standards
Last night I was out with my buddy Ron and we started to talk about the girl he’s been seeing. She’s a cute little blonde, really pretty in the face and body, as a wicked personality, and works as a nurse. If he hadn’t already tapped it, I would have tried for her myself. But while we were talking about how it was going between the two of them, he said it was over. The next bit of our conversation went like this:
“What do you mean it’s over?”
“It’s just over. I ended it.”
“She listened to Adele. Like all the time. I couldn’t stand it anymore. Does she not have any other CDs?”
This asshole was being serious! He was willing to give up sex with one of the most near-perfect women I’ve ever met because she listens to a music artist too much? What kind of lame excuse is that?
If you’re one of these people that are willing to break up with someone on a dime because of something as petty as their choice in music, then you need to smarten up. When you ween potential dates out of your life because of small details, you’re going to wind up with someone who is free of the small annoyances, but is filled with real problems.
Let’s take a look at what is and isn’t acceptable, shall we?
- Their work schedules are the exact opposite of yours, making it impossible to ever see them
- They’re emotionally damaging to you
- They’ve just killed someone
Totally not acceptable:
- You don’t like that they wear Ed Hardy (Alright, this one is debatable.)
- You’re offended they haven’t read Twilight
- They smoke. That is what quitting is for!
Cutting people off for reasons that really don’t matter will leave you lonely and and attempting to meet local women for the rest of your life.
