When you’re getting ready for your date tonight, make sure that it gets off on the right foot. Because for men, a lack of cleanliness is the biggest romantic deal breaker. This insight comes from a report in Pesonality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
Ladies, straighten up your apartment — or, at least, that part of it that your date can see from the front door when he picks you up. Researchers crunched the numbers from separate studies conducted in the United States, Australia and Asia and came up with a list of daters’ biggest turnoffs.
Look at how health conscious we're all becoming, isn't it cute.
Manners do matter, as 44% said being inconsiderate and impolite was a red light.
Besides, you run the risk that the man will take a shine to one of your mates instead of you. They want to hear your lovely voice, be enchanted by your conversation and seduced by your witty banter.
It is hard work having a night out with someone who is reluctant to contribute to the small talk.
You need to prepare well, use the right equipment, be alert.We all have our own little things that can instantly give us 'the ick' about the person we're dating.Maybe you're veggie and once you see them eating a greasy chicken wing with their bare hands (vom) you just can't imagine those fingers going anywhere near you.At first blush, the study might sound frivolous, but it had a much more serious purpose than coming up with dating advice.
The researchers were studying a hypothesis — which they’re now convinced is true — that in choosing potential mates we tend to focus more on the negative traits we want to avoid than the positive ones we seek. Their report calls deal breakers “efficient cognitive mechanisms designed to cull inappropriate potential partners, allowing mating preferences to operate within a reduced target of desirable mates.” Jeff Strickler is the assistant features editor for the Star Tribune.Nervous or shy behaviour was another hard dating limit, as was trying too hard.
