Have you ever had a massivecrush on someone, only to later experience a moment where they do or say something that immediately causes your romantic feelings to evaporate? It might sound harsh, but it's actually totally normal: everyone has their own unique set ofdating dealbreakers, and it's OK tolose interest in a crush (or even a long-term partner) if you discover something about them that you simply can't overlook. In a recent AskReddit thread, one user asked people to describe an occasion when they suddenly lost romantic interest in someone — and their answers are a fascinating glimpse into real people's biggest dating dealbreakers.
“A dealbreaker is an issue that is so important to a person, that if the other person will not compromise or concede, the relationship would probably not work out," psychologist and life coach, Dr. Nikki Martinez, Psy.D., LCPC tells Bustle. "They are things that are so deeply and utterly important to the person, that they could not be in a relationship with someone who did not share, or at least support and respect them."
