      May catch a bit of flack for some of these but here we go.

      Couldn't date a chavy/badly spoken person. Really annoys me.

      Couldn't date someone if they were fat - I don't mean chubby but propper 18 stone plus fat.

      Couldn't date someone if they were really left wing - I don't mean like middling liberal, but socialists/communists and regressives no, because they view life in a completly different paradigm than I do, that's not to say I can't be around people with opposing views, on the contrary I love doing that - but dating someone, and by extension wanting to spend the rest of my life with them, is a bit different.

      There's no way I'm dating a girl who believes that "guys should always do the chasing", the least we can do is have sex.
      I'm already having trouble getting girls, at the same time I'm hearing/watching girls ironically complain about being single, the last kinda of girl I want is someone who's proudly too lazy/egotistic to prove that she's likes me as much as I like her.
      Also, she's not GF material for me if she's..
      -a single mom expecting me to be a father figure for her kids.
      -conservative or religious
      -against sex before marriage
      -expecting me to marry her as soon as possible
      -a golddigger with no intention of making her own money
      -against PDAs
      -a radical feminist(the ones that care more about the "good" rights than equal rights)
      -too lazy to keep herself/environment clean once in a while

      To be honest, in general I would probably not like dating somebody any more than a little bit taller than me.
      Which is a lot of women, but yeah. I'm sure there could be individuals who would change my mind lol.

      Smoking is probably the biggest turn off for me. Also wouldn't date someone if they didn't have a good sense of humour

      Quite an important one I'd say.

      Anything counts... Be as shallow as you want, that's what this thread is for!

      my friend rejected a guy for a having cocktail sized penis- its not even a joke, anything sexual with him was impossible
      It's not about the size, it's what you do with it

      Wouldn't date her if she was one of those girls who had way too many male friends

      wouldn't date her if she was still best friends with her ex

      wouldn't "date" her if I was made aware she had a high lay count

      very unlikely to date her if she told me she is a feminist

      wouldn't initiate first contact after the first date if said date resulted in no kiss

      wouldn't date her if she was beautiful and also very intelligent

      wouldn't date her if she was taller than me unless she was mega hot

      wouldn't date her if she used to be a man

      wouldn't date her if she had a crap personality even if she was hot

      wouldn't date her if her job took up most of her time
      wouldn't date her if she was beautiful and also very intelligent - why not?

      I'll leave these reasons here, and other people can decide if these are shallow, or not:

      • Arrogance
      • Immaturity
      • Viewing the relationship as a gateway for sex.
      • The attraction is only there due to appearance.

      I'd be a bit intimidated by both the beauty and intelligence and i'd be wondering what does she see in me? .. and that she will probably soon ditch me for someone better.

      she can be beautiful with average intelligence
      or high intelligence and not beautiful [beautiful = 8+ in looks]

      but i'd not be keen to date a girl with both beauty and intelligence for the reasons outlined.
