13 Relationship Deal Breakers That Just Might Justify Ghosting Them

Every relationship is different and none are perfect. Every person has their own list of personal deal breakers, whether that is bad hygiene or super jealous behavior. Some like clingy, while some want to run and hide.

However, if you avoid these 13 extreme deal breakers, you have a chance at making anyone swoon.

1.  Making everything a competition for no reason.

You know the type, right? These men and women want everything to be a competition. They always want to be right and they always want to have bragging rights. Even getting the front seat in a vehicle is a competition. A little bit of competition can be fun, but over time a don't want everything to feel like a game.

2. Not having any ambitions, goals or direction.

These people seem awesome. They are laid back, chill and want to have a good time on the weekend. It's a casual time, you enjoy yourself until you ask the dreaded question, "So, what are your goals?" or "What are your plans when you graduate?"

Then they hit you with the, "I don't know," or "I don't care, I'll figure it out when I get there." Um, I like setting goals. It is OK to be a little unsure, but not even having a goal for the week is... yikes.

3. Being unhygienic and just overall, a mess.

They really spruce up for special occasions and look so fine from afar. But once you get to know them, you may find some icky habits. Whether they haven't showered in days or have never washed their sheets, this deal breaker is a hard pass.

4. Being too serious and making everything an intense conversation.

This person is smart, an intellectual. You meet up and have a great date until you realize they haven't laughed at one of your jokes. You brush it off, yet you can't remember a time they made you laugh all night either.

Sometimes, our senses of humor just don't match up, and sometimes you just have to ghost them for thinking "The Office" is funnier than "Brooklyn Nine-Nine."

5. Not being able to take anything seriously ever.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Joker. This is the person who just cannot sit down with a straight face or take you seriously when you are having a moment. This is fun, in the beginning, but in time, having someone who can have a real conversation with you is so much better.

6. Not being physically attractive. 

I'm just going to say it. This deal breaker means you just aren't physically attracted to them. You lack physical intimacy and there is only so far a relationship can go without physical contact.

7. Not being able to listen or pay attention to anything you say. 

You guys can talk for hours on end about anything. Then you text them about the plans you made or the success of your day and they hit you with the "What?" Or my personal favorite, "I don't remember you saying that."

These people may truly not mean to forget but not being given attention is a reason to ghost, in my opinion.

8. Being possessive and over-attentive.

This is a major red flag. This person is one who gets extremely jealous and possessive in any and all situations. They will ask where you are and who you are with, constantly. Run as fast as you can once you see this deal breaker come to light.

9. Not being able to get away from their past.

Whether they only talk about their ex or they peaked in high school, this deal breaker comes in many shapes and sizes.

10. Being disrespectful or just overall mean.

This person just doesn't respect your boundaries. Physically, mentally or emotionally they will push you and not in a good way. When you feel uncomfortable or misunderstood, it is time to walk away.

11. Cheating. Do I even have to explain?

This one is self-explanatory. These people make you feel unworthy, mistreated and insecure. Save yourself the time and just walk away.

12. Being unable to connect with anyone else.

This person will not socialize with your friends or family. They do not go out of their way to be noticed, they do not make conversation and they certainly won't make the first move.

Shy people aren't who I am coming after, but if you are seeing someone and no effort is made, I vote you cut them off immediately.

13. Being unsupportive and rude about what you believe.

This person may have different views than you. At first, it can seem like a challenge when in reality it is so much more. Date someone who supports you and your endeavors, not someone who hates on your major or your stance on feminism.

You can agree to disagree, but you cannot be unsupportive of what your partner wants and needs out of life.

Of course, everyone feels different about their deal breakers, however, beware of the red flags. Most importantly, choose to be with someone you do not have to question or compromise for. No relationship is perfect, but there are definitely boundaries of what you will and won't put up with.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

2909
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11414

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
