Singaporeans share what are the things that would make them avoid a second date.
Love is known to blind people to fatal flaws. People are known to overlook bad habits of the ones they love, especially to prevent things from turning sour.
Here are some Singaporean youth’s relationship deal breakers:
2. Not respecting your date’s family (or your own).
“I want him to love my family as much as I love them. It’s heart-warming seeing your boyfriend take time to be with your family. I usually watch how guys interact with their own family and how they treat them; You learn a lot.”
-Jessica Lim Zi Yun, 19, Female, Student.
3. Needing too much time with you…or NONE at all.
“I am unable to tolerate a guy that is too needy and depends on you for his happiness, where his mood is centered on the relationship. This would result in the relationship feeling like there is no breathing space.”
-Gwyneth Judilla, Female, 18, Student.
4. Dishonesty…need more be said?
“When someone is my partner, we basically are going to be spending and doing life together. How can we share our lives with one another when there are lies?”
-David Loh, Male, 21, Student.
“Personally, I feel that unfaithfulness is the only deal-breaker. All other issues and factors can always be resolved together, it just needs some giving and taking from both parties.”
-Darryl Tan, 19, Male, Student.
“A douche bag is one that jokes excessively without knowing the limits and still thinks there’s nothing wrong with it. He only thinks about being funny, he overlooks everyone else’s feelings.”
-Samuel Koala Tan, 21, Male, NSF.
-Victor Yap, 19, Male, Student.
While polling youths for their responses, we realized that women tend to have more deal-breakers than guys do. Are guys just less picky, or more tolerant? Let us know what you think, and if these deal-breakers are things you could put up with!
