Deal breakers are things that make you go, “That’s it, I’m sure he’s not the one for me.” Cheating is an example of a deal breaker. Some women will forgive a man who cheats on them, but for others, cheating is something they will not tolerate. Many women would leave if their men expected them to do all the housework without pitching in. Some women also take bad temper or possessive personality as a sign that they should end the relationship.
This isn't to say that breakups are cut and dried things that hinge on just one element going wrong. It is definitely hard to walk away from someone, but most women have principles and ideals they will stick by, no matter what. Only you know when enough is enough or when your partner has gone beyond your limit for forgiveness or tolerance. Having standards when it comes to picking your partner shows that you value yourself and that you will not settle for someone who isn’t right for you or who doesn't respect you or your values.
Whether you are single right now or are in a relationship, we definitely want to know about the things you just won’t tolerate in a guy. What would make you walk away?
