Help! Dating Questions Need Answers!

I’m conducting a survey to find out what the biggest annoyances are when dating or in a committed relationship for a project I have in the works. I need your help!

Please let me know:
1. What is something your date/significant other does that bothers you?
2. What is the ultimate turn-off or deal breaker?
3. What do YOU do that bothers your date/significant other?
4. If there was one thing you could make the people you date/significant other stop for good, what would it be?

All ideas used will be credited back to the person who contributed it (unless you wish otherwise). I thank you for your help!!

  1. 1. What is something your date/significant other does that bothers you?

    Does not follow up on what I would call “household administrative to-do’s” that really need to be done. If there is paperwork that she needs to sign and she’s not around, I just forge her signature because it would never happen otherwise, then I let her know what she signed for. Anything else related to the operation or finances of the “household” I just take care of because some items I have handed off to her have almost always ended up falling behind, so I get late notices or collection warnings or second invoices, or we miss opportunities by missing deadlines, etc…. so I stopped handing them off long ago and do them all myself.

    2. What is the ultimate turn-off or deal breaker?

    Dumb girls that don’t want to learn anything. I am never sure if it’s that they don’t want to learn or they are genetically incapable of learning because it physically pains them, but some girls just glass over and stare into space if you spend more than five minutes talking about something. The girls I really liked asked questions, challenged me, dug deeper. Eh………rare. My wife is one of the only ones that I ever met that can keep my intellectual game sharp. And she’s hot. Bonus.

    3. What do YOU do that bothers your date/significant other?

    She says I repeat the same thing over and over when I am discussing a concept, or politics or economics, even though she got it the first time. She’s right. What I do is explain it, then use an analogy or two that is closer to what I expect the listener to understand to drive the point home. This has become my standard “educational voice” because MOST of the people I am talking to have not blown the dust bunnies off their brain since they took their last calculus exam and it takes repetition to get those rusty gears to start chinking along. She unfortunately, and needlessly, suffers from this problem I have developed.

    4. If there was one thing you could make the people you date/significant other stop for good, what would it be?

    For my wife, nothing. She is perfect in every way. She is not good at to-do’s so I simply take control of all of them. That is why it is incorrect to say that opposites attract, because being attracted to someone just because they are opposite is not going to make a successful relationship. It might work in the short term based on that initial attraction, but those opposites become the reasons that end up killing the relationship. I believe that COMPLIMENTARY opposites attract AND work as solid relationships.

    For everyone else, we would need to increase research funding for the cure for stupid.

  2. now that it seems to let me post

    1. Enjoy Nickelback
    2. being a fan of nickelback
    3. Bash Nickelback
    4. Admitting the existence of nickelback

    I’m sure this will be of no help to your project…icp could almost replace nickelback for all of those answers….and as much of a smartass as I am being…I totally could NOT date a chick who loved or considered nickelback to be good music. MAYBE if she legitly was able to admit they were a shit band but it was a guilty pleasure of hers…MAYBE in that case I could see past it…or maybe if she was smoking hot and rich and never talked about the band I could see past that…but just saying…nickelback is awful 😀
