    Rhymes with 'bone', 'phone', 'tone', 'cone' etc

    I've just successfully triggered 50% of the internet. Be gentle, it's my first time.

    Most people pronounce it like "con". Kinda annoys me too tbh. But I think it's a regional thing.

    Cambridge University researched it (groundbreaking research, I know):

    Scone thing apparently doesn't bother me enough as my partner tries to tell me scone like a cone is wrong. And corrects me all the time which is more irritating than his s"con"e

    But I'd definitely not date someone if I discovered they'd come on here and ever done one of those irritating age gap posts. Firstly, can you not read? There's so many of them you don't need to make a new one to get an answer. And often it's creepy guys wanting someone to say it's fine to sleep with jail bait. - which is a less shallow reason.

    If they disliked gaming

    Also if they said they don't like chicken , I actually met a guy (not for dating purposes mind you lol) who said he despised chicken, my jaw went down to my knees. He must have been deprived of the London Chicken & Chips experience. He wasn't even feeling Nando's! I know this sounds all too unbelievable...

    What are reasons you wouldn't date someone?
    Give the most shallow reasons if you want or general reasons... List them all!

    I wouldn't date her if she was a smoker or if she took drugs. Or if she was dead, probably self-explanatory really...

    Add a few more:

    Bad teeth
    No ambition in life
    Lazy
    Too religious
    Fat

    Discuss.

    I REALLY couldn't date a girl who really supported Liverpool lol. They are the one team I can't stand lol. I don't know why, always despised the club, the people from there and everything about Liverpool as a city and as the place too.

    Most people from my college class is going to Liverpool uni next year, but Liverpool is the one place I won't even look at lol.

    I'm a Man United fan too big Man United supporter
