Loud chewers and dangerous dishwasher loaders were surprisingly common results.

“There’s just no need for how he chews his food.
I’ll find a reason to leave the room if he eats things like a banana.”

– FOX EARS

“His definition of ‘I’ll be right there’ is way too off. Supper will be cold
or the show will be half over by the time he comes to my call.
Or I’ll be waiting at work for a ride home. Just, his zero concept of time!”
– TICK TOCK

“She’s a chronic complainer. She hates the food at the restaurants everyone loves,
every good TV show is in her mind “stupid or slow.” The couch we watch the movies on?
You got it – too lumpy, too weird, too broken in. It’s hard to feel like you’re in the
perfect relationship when you’re with someone who sounds like she can’t stand anything
at all she comes into contact with.”
– DATING DEBBIE DOWNER

“Name dropping. We started dating because I thought this man/woman was cool.
All the name dropping just makes this person seem like they’re trying to be cool by association,
of who they know, versus being cool for who he/she is.”
– ANON

“WHO LOADS THE DISHWASHER WITH THE KNIFE BLADES FACING UP!!!
It’s almost a deal breaker, and she won’t change.”
– TO BE STABBED YET

“I guess what drives me nuts about him in the bad way is he won’t love me back.
And I can’t give up loving him.”
– LA LA LA

“At first I thought it was cute a woman her age had weird pets.
Now I’m just irritated by the sound of the hamster running around its excercise wheel after 1 a.m.”
– NOCTURNAL ADMISSION

“It is magically always my turn to do the dishes. To let the dog out. To get the groceries.
And magically his turn to go out Friday night.”
– BAD LUCK JIM

“He’s, like, Mr. Affectionate at home. But super stand-off-ish with Public Displays of Affection.
You’d never even tell we’re a couple when we’re out.”
– ANON

“Yes. Absolutely that his beard trimmings are always all over my nice bars of soap and toothbrush and everything!”
– A.

“PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY MAN, I AM RIGHT HERE!
THE INTERNET IS GOING TO CARRY ON WITHOUT YOU
FOR AN HOUR AND THAT’S OKAY!”
– DONNA

“She fails to recognize her approach to handling conflict is startlingly similar to her father’s.
Mentioning any link between her and her father is taboo. Doing so will lead to silent treatment
(wonder who taught her that one?) or to withdraw from the world in her bed
(a technique she learned at a young age to cope with the same Daddy-behaviour she now perpetuates).”
– LOVING ON THE SIDELINES

“Give him a few beers and he talks too much, about nothing really, just likes to hear himself talk.”
– SHHH
