Science Has Uncovered the 10 Relationship Deal Breakers

Science Has Uncovered the 10 Relationship Deal Breakers

Deal breakers, we all have them. While some of us may have a long laundry list of qualities that may disqualify a potential beau, science has narrowed down 10 of the most common deal breakers for short-term and long-term relationships.

According to a study published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, researchers assessed the effect of relationship deal breakers on the formation of romantic or sexual relationships to determine the value that people place on them, in comparison to dealmakers. By analyzing six independent studies, researchers were able to discover the top deal breakers for people who were making decisions about potential partners.

In a statement, Gregory Webster, one of the study's authors and an associate professor of psychology at UF, said, “We have a general tendency to attend more closely to negative information than we do to positive information.” More importantly, deal breakers are stronger for women compared to men.  

The deal breakers are as follows:

For short-term

1.     Has health issues or STDs

2.     Smells

3.     Has poor hygiene

4.     Is married or already in another relationship

5.     Is currently dating multiple people

6.     Has anger issues or is abusive

7.     Isn't good in bed

8.     Isn't attractive

9.     Is racist or bigoted

10.    Doesn't take care of themselves

For long-term

1.     Has anger issues or is abusive

2.     Is dating multiple people

3.     Isn't trustworthy

4.     Is married or already in another relationship

5.     Has health issues or STDs

6.     Has an alcohol or drug problem

7.     Isn't attentive or caring

8.     Dismisses your interests

9.     Has poor hygiene

10.    Smells

Keep in mind, deal breakers vary from person-to-person.  For example, a deal breaker for you may be poor hygiene, while your BFF may be willing to stick around with someone who has poor hygiene and help improve the suitor.
