1. Stories of Behaviors/Opinions That Caused Someone To Loose Their Romantic Interest In Another #1 – The Lying Ex:

“I had an ex who consistently lied and omitted things. Usually not about anything huge, but she had a habit of it and didn’t seem to think it was wrong. The longer we dated the worse it got. Eventually it really divided us because I couldn’t trust anything she said.

From then on, if I discovered I was with someone who lied often as a tactic, to get what they want, to avoid consequences, etc. that was pretty much the end of the relationship for me.”

5. Stories of Behaviors/Opinions That Caused Someone To Loose Their Romantic Interest In Another #5 –  The Date Who Talks Too Much On The First Date:

“This might get buried (or down voted) but I’ve gone on one too many first dates with people who just talked at me the entire time. To the point where if I’m on a date with someone new and they start doing this my brain starts to shut down and I immediately start losing interest.

I get that people are nervous on first dates and probably talk more just to fill the silence but like, don’t you want to know who I am? Maybe just a little bit? Like ask me some questions. Give yourself a break from talking. It blows my mind when this happens and then at the end they say “oh I really like you, you’re great!” But they literally know nothing about me because I just spent the last 2-3 hours listening to them talk about themselves the entire time.”

13. Stories of Behaviors/Opinions That Caused Someone To Loose Their Romantic Interest In Another #13 – Obsession with Conspiracy Theories:

“Being a hardcore conspiracy theorist. Dude I was interested in started explaining how he thinks trump might be a plant to expose the child sex trafficking ring among the elite. He was basically QAnon before it got popular. Every single thing I brought up, even things not related to politics, he had some wild theory about. Now mind you, I am a biologist and science lover and if you can’t bring me hard evidence for something, it’s just a theory and you can’t preach it at me like it’s fact.

We hooked up once and I don’t much care to ever see him again. It was impossible to have normal conversations.”

“Hoarding – I made this mistake once, I got into a relationship with a hoarder. I eventually realized that her deeply dysfunctional relationship to objects extended to the people around her.
