His date looked pretty appalled by the whole thing. I'm assuming, since she never appeared or was mentioned again in future episodes, that this was a bit of a deal-breaker for her. Which got me thinking - if I was on a date with a guy and that happened, would it actually put me off???
There's things that with me, could be potential deal-breakers:
- Excessive deliberate flatulence. I don't care what people say, farting isn't big, and it isn't clever. I know we all can have our accidental slip-outs, but guys who think it's funny to do it all the time . . . that is not cool with me.
- Constant game playing. Do I need to justify this one really?
- Continuous non-responses to texts/emails/etc. If I wanted to feel like a stalker, I'd . . . um . . . become a stalker.
- Slagging off my drinking habits. Let he without his own drunken embarrassing story cast the first pint glass at me and all that . . .
Now, what happened with Ross . . . that wouldn't be a deal-breaker for me. In fact, I would actually find that absolutely hilarious. I'd probably think of it as a story to tell our kids one day. Or, since I'm not sure I actually want kids, it's the kind of story he'd be bribing me not to tell all our friends.
Which I would, by the way. Excessively. Particularly when I was drunk.
I mean, the only thing wrong with the story is that he was wearing leather trousers. Which is probably a deal breaker too. So I wouldn't have got to the bathroom stage. But that's not really the point . . .
So what about you? If that situation happened to you, what would be your reaction? What are your deal breakers???
