We all have a mental picture of our ideal date and if asked we can list qualities we want them to possess off our fingertips. These qualities can be referred to as “deal makers”. But there are also “deal breakers” qualities that can disqualify a prospective. My definition of deal breakers is very simple – they are red flags, little demons (lol) that raise their ugly heads when we meet someone new, or when we start to see someone we have always known in a new light when they start taking interest in us. Deal breakers differ based on our tastes, perspectives, opinions etc. I did a mini survey amongst few ladies I have access to and asked what their deal breakers were, the following are their responses listed below :

1) Physical Appearance

It’s important to be attracted to our partners. Something should attract us physically. This ranges from height to skin complexion, dress sense, physique.

2) Odours

It’s a major red flag as most girls said they couldn’t stand a man with a body odour, mouth odour or smelling feet. In the words of the ladies, “the smell of his perfume has to draw me in”. Cleanliness is key & it’s the new sexy.

3). Character

The character is everything, it is what’s keeps us in a place/position. It’s highly encompassing, as a good character includes a lot of things such as integrity, sense of maturity, sense of responsibility, humility, loyalty, and commitment. Everyone desires to date someone with a good character.

4). Employment Status

It’s important he has means of livelihood, and his not earning his money from criminal activities.

5). Accents

In Nigeria with our diversity in culture and languages, often time we find indigenous languages interfering with our spoken English which could be a source of a turn-off. Yes, English isn’t our father’s language but there’s nothing wrong in speaking it fluently.

6). Sexual Prowess

A nigga must know how to use his tool they said. Have got zero chills for someone who is awful in bed. He must possess horseman genes lol.
