Deliberate dishonesty.

Aside from cheating (I think you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who would tolerate that) Jealousy gets me. A little jealousy is all right, even expected, but when my SO doesn’t like me talking to other men, I chuck him like yesterday’s garbage.

@please_not_to_ask2 Ditto. Deliberate lying is a deal breaker. Also, abuse of any kind.

Abuse, physical or otherwise.

Hard drugs is a no-no; addiction of anything is a deal breaker.

Flatulence in bed?

Dr_C's avatar

Flatulence in bed you really have no control over… if she can take mine i can take hers…. but what i won’t tolerate is ass play…. or cheating…

@Dr_C lol@ass play

@dearest_prudence what about verbal?

dearest_prudence's avatar

@_liz, I have dealt w/that enough, not so much since I had joined, but I find I would rather be put down than have my jaw broken
I will tolerate it, but I can give as good as I get, that usually puts a stop to that

AstroChuck's avatar

Any type of dishonesty and fanatical conservatism.

kenmc's avatar

Perpetual nagging/yelling.

@dearest_prudence Oh, God… shutters

I won’t tolerate mental abuse, or mental games.
I’ve had guys that have tried to make me look small because of their own insecurities.

Cheating, abuse, massive deception (I’m cool with a surprise party, I’m not down with your wife in Iowa), and games that make me keep a mask on.

AstroChuck's avatar

@boots- But that eliminates women.

kenmc's avatar

@AstroChuck Not all women. Just 99%.

gimmedat's avatar

Adultery, abuse, or addiction. I heard these three A’s a long time ago on Dr. Laura’s radio show, and I agree. She’s a nut-job, but those words ring true with me.

casheroo's avatar

Just one thing? There are quite a few I wouldn’t tolerate.

Lying, cheating, any form of abuse are up there.

Sofia_R's avatar

Cheating, abuse, lack of trust

jca's avatar

cheating or being hit/physical abuse.

Mr_M's avatar

Nose picking. It’s ALL over with nose picking.

AstroChuck's avatar

Well, that leaves me out.
