    Of course my wife has an excellent sense of humour, after all she married me
    To me lack of sense of humor = lack of intelligence. That's the big deal-breaker for me - a person who is unable to challenge me.

    Re: Relationship dealbreakers

    Any number of things could make a relationship fail but my automatic no-negotiation deal brakers are:
    • Poor personal hygiene,
    • Poor social manners,
    • Drug abuse,
    • Obesity,
    • Inability to maintain an income,
    • Needy.
    Vaccines, because it's not always about you.

    Well, some people are just dry and vanilla, and just don't have quirky personalities. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, if that's what you like. But I couldn't imagine being in a relationship with someone like that. My girlfriend and I click so well because we're always screwing around and making sarcastic jokes. Having a sense of humor is a great thing.

    And that's the way it should be, Miss Gov! People that can't grasp humor or who are unable to laugh at themselves I have no time for.

    Some men prefer women that challenge them mentally (that's me) some prefer women who are mentally challenged.

    You now know which one I am.

    As a mentally challenged guy that seeks like minded women I only know which one you are because you told me in your previous sentence... wait, which one are you again?

    I could not and would not deal with any man who is easily angered. No thank you - next.
    Phones at a restaurant. Walking in front. Wild clothing. Tattoos. Smoking. Yelling at or slapping children. Dirty car. Too much make up. Too long fingernails. Bad teeth. Chipped nail polish. Dirty feet. Spare tire. Aggressive behavior, political or otherwise. Bad relationship with parents. Ugly druggie friends. Overboard with religion. Overboard about no religion. Estranged from one or more members of the family.

    Just to name a few.
