Deal Breakers pt. 2 - less serious edition

I've talked about my deal breakers before, but it was really let's get a little lighter on it.  If you need an intro, see above.  Here we go, several things I'm not looking for in my non-caucasian future wife.

  1. Gigglers - Daddy has pretty much stayed out of my dating habits, except to say a few things like "Don't bring home a giggler.  Trust me on this one."  I haven't tried dating a giggler, but I can understand how it could be fun at first, but annoying after awhile.  And then you have to live with that for the rest of your life.
  2. Toilet seat position arguers - As far as I'm concerned, it's not that big of an issue whether the lid stays up or down when you finish with it.  I don't see it as something worth arguing over.
  3. Jersey Shore fans - and all related shows.  My reasoning should be obvious here.
  4. Smokeless tobacco users - I'm from the country.  Lots of women there use smokeless tobacco.  Yes, really.
  5. Wrestling fans - I used to watch wrestling up until high school.  I even went to a few wrestling events with my dad.  He was gracious enough to take me and put up with it.  Hey, I paid more attention at the WWF and WCW events than I did when I was at baseball games.  Thankfully, I grew out of it, and I don't see myself with a woman who hasn't.
  6. Avid gamers - I'm gonna want someone who's a fan of going outside once in awhile.
  7. Non-laughers - these are worse than gigglers, as you never get an audible appreciation for your attempts at humor.
  8. Non-dancers - you've gotta be able to express yourself and move when the music moves you.  If it ain't there, it ain't there.  Introduce me to your friends and show me that they dance.  Cause (for the ones I've met so far) your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine.
  9. Not aware of what's going on in the world - I think a lot of Christians try to be so out of the world that they don't know anything about what's going on out there.  Granted, most of my information is secondhand through places like Stuff Christians Like and Tyler Tarver's stupid videos, but I at least know what to look up on wikipedia when I need to.
  10. Homebodies - I enjoy going out places to do stuff.  Hence my disdain for the avid gamer.  People ask me what I like to do in my spare time, and the answer is pretty simple: "Be with people and do stuff."  Neither very descriptive nor very well defined, but that's because it doesn't have to be.  I don't always have to go rock climbing or paintballing or geocaching, I'm fine as long as I'm with people and we're doing something.
 So that's my top ten list.  Or at least my first ten in my head list.  I've probably got more, and you've probably got some better ones than I do.  What would you say to those?  What do you have that would cause you to call off a relationship?


  1. Here's a few others:
    - The Monster Truck Rally Maniac: not sexy. Trust me.
    - Justin Bieber Everything: maybe I'm just a little sensitive to this, living with a 14yo girl, but if she can't construct a sentence without throwing in the Beav (and she's over, mmm, 18) turn around and run. Run I say.
    - Dancers who either are into a "Routine" with their brother (ala Friends) or do the Elaine, a dry heave set to music (ala Seinfeld).
    - Girls who have never seen Friends or Seinfeld and are not amused by it when you introduce them.

    That's allI got for now.

  2. I think the monster truck maniacs fall in the category with the wrestling fans.
