25 dating dealbreakers
After the participants made their ratings, they learned that each of the potential mates possessed a specific potential deal-breaker—an unhealthy lifestyle, undesirable personality traits, interest only in a casual sexual relationship when you’re interested in a serious relationship, or vice-versa.
