What's the most shallow reason you've ever broken up with someone

It is anonymous so be honest.

I'll start: I broke up with a guy who had really small loads. I found it annoying.

This is going to sound really petty, but he introduced me incorrectly.

I have so many, it's hard to tell which is the most shallow:

- One guy couldn't see a movie unless he was sitting in the first row of the theater so you had to look straight up to see the screen

- One guy had six cats and loved them way too much

- One guy dressed like a cowboy. All the time. In Southern California. And he grew up in Boston. And had never set cowboy booted foot in Texas, Colorado, or any place else where Western apparel would have felt at home.

- One guy ordered an enormous breakfast (eggs over easy, hash browns, pancakes, bacon, and sausage) which came on one giant plate. He put butter and syrup on the pancakes and salt/pepper on the eggs. Then, with his fork in his left hand and his knife in the right, he proceeded to make three or four giant X-shaped cuts through the food until everything was sort of mixed together. With fork in his right hand, he used a piece of toast in the left as a backstop to help pierce a grotesque amount of food on the fork for each "bite." He virtually had to unhinge his jaw to jam these huge globs of food into his mouth. And each bite was an obscene mix of yolky pancake and syrupy, buttery egg dotted with flecks of breakfast meat and potato. He also talked with his mouth full.

by Anonymousreply 7108/26/2013

There are some really off-the-hook funny/sad responses. r71, how someone eats breakfast is pretty shallow... but real funny.

I've had people who refused to fuck me because I was too tall. Others refused to fuck me because I was too short. I'm 6'1". One refused to fuck me because I couldn't swallow Mormonism. I've had many, many gold-diggers refuse to fuck me for obvious reasons. One refused to fuck oil drillers. PICKY PICKY PICKY

I'm getting closer and closer to calling things off with a bf of 11 yrs because he's gained about 30kg and has done nothing about it despite me spending the past two years trying to gently and positively encourage him to get some exercise.

Another kept a smudgy house. The place was technically "clean", but every fucking surface had kind of a greasy/dirty haze over it - especially light switches and countertops.

I didn't intentionally try to teach him how to clean properly, but I did volunteer to clean up after he ordered carryout. I went a little OCD with surface cleaner and a rag. I stayed away from the fridge - it looked like he'd skinned a squirrel and set it loose inside to die.

He called me a neat freak when we broke up.

by Anonymousreply 7708/27/2013

One guy was a fiber freak, like he would always eat healthy and eat lots of fiber-rich food but then take huge amounts of fiber pills and flax seed oil and all sorts of stuff to help him "move out his business," as he said.

Well one time there was literally a 14-inch snake in the toilet and instead of flushing it, he made me come in and look at it. He said it was his personal best and he wanted me to inspect it. I was grossed out....and though it was going to slither out of the bowl and slide down the heating vent, it was that big. Anyway, I dumped him 2 days later.

He said "aks" instead of ask and "free" instead of three. He was incredibly intelligent, but the way he spoke made him sound dumb and it annoyed me no end.

I thought the same thing r80, but he runs an incredibly successful company that he started on his own straight after college. He is very business savvy but sounds dumb as a post. I think he was coddled growing up, so he was never corrected or sent to a speech pathologist. It's obvious he grew up with a lot of self belief, but is completely unable to see the terrible first impression he makes.

Really REALLY bad sex-talk that went on for a very long time (it took him FOREVER to come - another reason for dumpage) and increased in volume and intensity as climax approached, and consisted of just two words:

"oh mate"

Each word becoming more elongated and the expression growing slightly louder each time - like "Bolero", but not in a good way.

Me again (the "Bolero" guy above).

I just remembered another guy who had to go due to bad sex talk - he called me "Baby", but in the third person - e.g.: "does Baby like that, oh yeah, I think Baby really likes that" with me looking around to see if anybody had joined us in the room.

He was otherwise pretty hot so I mentally blocked out the commentary until he called his arse a 'man-pussy' - I was out of there leaving him swinging in the sling...

I once lived in a really small town (Wendover, NV). Bill was a guy that everyone knew. Bill had an absolutely gimongous nose, the kind you could open letters with. Think of Danny Kaye's nose and then add a little more. Well, everyone knew Bill pretty well and then much later Bill's sister came to town. Bill's sister was very trim and shapely but the poor thing had a nose just like Bill. It turned nobody could bear to fuck Bill's sister because they couldn't do it without thinking they were actually fucking Bill. It was the funniest shit I had ever heard.

OK, so you are curious. Think scrotum, one inch of taint and then the normal asshole.

I couldn't play, rim or fuck it, so I moved to a different city and gave him the wrong phone number.

He was the only guy I ever broke up with (I am either the dumpee or it's mutual), but not because of the weird breakfast ritual. He talked way too much.

by Anonymousreply 10209/04/2013

"I think he was coddled growing up, so he was never corrected or sent to a speech pathologist"

Because everyone has enough money to send their kids to a speech pathologist! Or maybe everyone in his family spoke the same way and didn't see it as a problem. The snobbism on this board can really be intolerable sometimes. You have to be insane to think that someone must have been "coddled" if his parents didn't ship him off to a speech pathologist because of how he pronounces one word.

I broke up with a guy because he told me that he was dyslexic. I was in my early 20s, and really loved reading. I couldn't see myself with someone who didn't enjoy reading as well. He was also a part time bartender, while attending art school, and I didn't see his career going anywhere. I dumped a surgeon because he ate and chewed food with his mouth open. I dumped another guy because his house smelled funny (he was Indian and cooked stinky food).

R48, I also dumped someone for the bad rug. I didn't notice it on the first date. He had picked the restaurant and it was dimly lit. Finally got a good look at it one night under bright lights and realized it was a toupee. I couldn't handle that.

Also dumped a talker during sex. It was like an interrogation every single time we fucked. Do you like this? Do you like that? Do you like it when I do this? Do you like it when I do that? Shut the fuck up! Too bad because he had a huge cock and knew how to use it, but he ruined my orgasm with his endless list of questions. I did ask him to stop it, but he told me he needed to do that to get off. I knew then I had to dump him.

Dumped more than one guy when I found out they took anti-depressants.

Because he was barely 3 inches hard and one nut was MIA...which I would have overlooked had he not fucked around on me with some blond,skanky Pam Anderson type he met on social media just 2 days before he returned to his army unit in Germany.

1. He was boring. He traveled a lot and all he could talk about were plane schedules and flight attendants. You'd think flight attendant stories might be a little interesting, but no. And then he'd talk about plane schedules some more. Great sex. Wish I could call him up. Dead now, of course (I don't know how I didn't get AIDS from him, but I didn't).

2. He was from my home town, and he didn't want me to tell anyone. He claimed he was "bi." Again, great sex, but I still had contact with many of the people he wouldn't want me to talk about him with, and I just couldn't do it.

3. He broke down the door to my apartment. And he was uncircumcised.
