If you have been dating someone awhile, and things are progressing nicely, is there one thing they can tell you about themselves that would make you end the relationship right away?

I would not end a relationship automatically if a person I loved admitted a drug addiction. Even if he commited a homicide, I would allow for his story to be told. If he were a she, I don't know...I'd like to think it wouldn't matter, but I just don't know. Obviously being a serial child murderer/rapist would end things pretty quickly.

Yeah, but there are some...less conventionally shocking things that would disturb me. I would allow him to be pro-life or pro-NRA without too much grief (maybe just a little), but honestly if he started getting starry-eyed over Bush I wouldn't know what to do. Maybe an intervention of sorts, militant psychiatric treatment, I don't know. I just don't know how the relationship would work if something he fully supported stood in direct opposition to so many of my principles. Couples counseling is a sure bet.

oh god no. People change, they get better. If you LOVE that person, nothing should stop your love.

If a guy told me that the man must wear the pants in the family, I would drop him like a hot potato.

If they had a sex change.

They'd have to tell me they didn't really love me.

I can't think of one thing.

I would have to say political affiliation. Like wiseNsexy said, if they were pro-Bush, etc., that would definitely be a problem. We would probably fight all the time.

You guys have pretty low standards! Either that or mine are too high, LOL ... I've got a huge list of things that would prevent me from dating someone. I'm getting married this week so it doesn't matter though

Being human generally turns me off to other people.

Either that or "I hate the Simpsons."

I'ld like to think that if somone I was close to told me they had a drug addiction I would help them get over it, If they were origanaly of a different gender to the one they were at the time I doubt I'ld care (tho that said I don't realy put much bias on gender, actualy, thinking about it I have a lot of respect for somone who's true enough to themselves to have a sex change dispite the socal stigma) and I think that would have been true in my hetro days also. And I wouldn't be with anyone who supported bush or any other fasist regeme.

If they were pro-choice. Or believed that men were superior to women. If they were racist. But I think these are things you can determine very early in the relationship.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/10/03 - 7:36:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, I wouldn't end it for those reasons. I think it's good to be different.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/18/03 - 10:07:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
those are some pretty odd examples Kiki. Break up over country music? lol..

No, it would have to be something very important like a drug addiction they weren't willing to get help with or they were starting to become completely obsessed with me like my friend Kt's ex. (He had to know where she was going to be, who she was going to be with, etc. all the time).

Little differences don't matter. Problems do.

18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/18/03 - 10:59:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think I'd totally break up with someone if they liked country! Unless they agreed to never turn it on around me

"I just screwed your cat."

yes there are some things I wouldn't settle for. You'll probably only ever have one life partner - why settle for a rascist or fascist or someone given to nasty behaviour.

How about if they tell you that they are an ax murderer?
