Light-hearted - What's the most trivial reason you've broken up with someone/declined a date?

Inspired by a different, more serious, thread but thought there must be some great, light-hearted stories about ridiculous, trivial or unreasonable things that have given you the 'ick'.

Gotta pass the time while we're all stuck inside.

Nice guy but he reminded me of my ex.

Had a weird accent that I found annoying and his taste in shoes was horrible.

He had a big crease under his earlobes.......

I should probably post mine, I guess.

Nice, intelligent, interesting guy. Flatteringly keen on me. Owned a yellow jacket. Wore it everywhere. It was a no from me.

Too keen and nice. Always makes me suspicious.

His hands were too small.

He text me on date one while I was in the loo to say I looked stunning. Creepy

He said he didn’t ‘get’ the appeal of dogs. Major red flag for me grin

He thought nibbling my bottom lip whilst kissing was erotic, when actually it had the effect of making me want to smack him.

I brought a guy home for a one night stand. When he stripped off he was covered in Disney tattoos. I literally rang him a taxi from my bedroom.

He said The Da Vinci Code was his favourite novel. I said 'Let's not have a second drink.'

Simply Red fan.

He liked plane spotting

This makes me want to throw something!

QueenofallIsee Sat 21-Mar-20 13:22:13

He pronounced it ‘rid-ick-uh-luss’

Amazing how often he used the word 🤬

FlowerArranger Sat 21-Mar-20 13:24:50

This isn't actually trivial, but we never had a 2nd date because of his contempt for `guest workers`. [This was a VERY long time ago...]

Nasal hair. I noticed it on the second date and kept imagining it smooshing on my face when he kissed me. Couldn't do it and didn't know him well enough to tell him to get a nasal hair trimmer

IceKitten Sat 21-Mar-20 13:25:41

He snored.

I was thinking of going on a date with this guy on OLD, but changed my mind because he used "lol" as punctuation in all his messages. It wasn't even when he'd said something that might possibly have been amusing, it was more like "So where do you want to go lol, I'm free on Friday night lol". It made him sound both annoying and thick.

Last ex was dumped for making an immature, offensive remark about a celebrity who had died.
Prior to that, one who had no volume control. Kept stressing my dog out.

LittleChoCho Sat 21-Mar-20 14:00:58

A really really boring voice. Slow and monotone - like that priest in Father Ted. I know he couldn't help it but it really brought me down.

GalleyHead Sat 21-Mar-20 14:01:30

He pronounced it ‘rid-ick-uh-luss’

I felt slightly murderous even reading that.

LittleChoCho Sat 21-Mar-20 14:03:30

@WokeOnTheWater I think I know him. Did his name begin with F?

Songlyrics Sat 21-Mar-20 14:05:43

His name was "Herbert".
