If People Were Honest About Their Dating Deal Breakers

There's a reason first dates are almost universally dreaded: Make one false move (mentioning an ex, wearing bright orange Crocs) and your chances of sharing a white-picket-fence future and 2.5 kids with this person are slim to none.

"Wow, you post a lot of political posts on Facebook, I don't know how I feel about that."

"I'm not saying I don't want to date you because you used the wrong 'you're' in a text, but that is definitely what's happening here."
