Participants then re-evaluated their interest type of relationship with the person, including friendship.
These participants were given a list of 17 traits and were asked to check off the ones they felt were deal breakers (as many as they wanted).
The table below shows the percentage of participants who chose each of the 17 traits, broken down by gender.
Participants chose an average of six deal breakers, with women choosing slightly more than men. The researchers also wanted to understand how these deal breakers affect our dating decisions.
"I would NEVER go out with someone who would do X, Y or Z...except that I always have..." :( I'd like researchers to figure out the answer to this!
You've finally met someone who seems to be the partner of your dreams.
You are very attracted to each other, you like many of the same things and you can spend hours talking.
