    They can't help it, I think you are scared of their complexity.

    Not even close to the reason why.

    Plus, every single human being on this earth is 'complex'.

      I didn't say they weren't, but I think sociopaths have high than average complexity look at Charles Manson for example.

      Go on then, what is the reason why?

      • If I didn't like their friends.
      • If they were financially irresponsible.
      • If their entire wardrobe was literally just track suits yet they never exercised in them.
      • I'd date someone who was a bit overweight, but if they're obese it's almost certainly a no. I'm simply not attracted to that, and it would be unfair of me to try to change them, it's on them. Not me.


      I actually struggled to think of them, took me a good 5 minutes. :lol:

      I mean doesn't care about politics because 'Everything is always the same anyway'.

      Lol, which ones do you take particular issue with?

      I don't have particular issue with any of them, but personally I don't see a guy [or girl] using the word as nagging as such a big deal. I seldom use the word myself, but I can't really see someone using it as being a dealbreaker.

      Religion I don't see as such a dealbreaker either unless they are muslim extremist or something. Why don't you like religion?

      "supreme gentleman" - I wonder what your definition of one is tbh

      double standards - fair enough, although I don't think you'll find a person alive who doesn't believe in at least one double standard.

      sexist - again fair enough, although you branded me as sexist before lol ...and I'm only mildly sexist imo. It's not like I believe women are mentally more incapable than men or shouldn't have the vote or shouldn't be paid equally or anything like that. I can only remember one time in my life where someone pulled me up for being sexist, and it was more a "you shouldn't say that it's not PC" comment ...than someone actually getting offended.

      Let's just say I've come into contact with Sociopaths before.

      I won't be 'turned off' by them just saying it. It's more them saying it all the time-just when they're being lazy. Basically laziness tbh.

      Having a Religiously Conservative family has kind of 'warped' my view. Plus, I can hardly stay with someone who believes a book/scroll/whatever instead of Science.

      Elliott Rodger lol. Who else?

      I don't, and I pride myself on that.

      How is that 'lol' if you basically admit to being just that. Out of interest, what did you say?

      Surprised this one isn't more common. They all just say "not shorter than me" which I interpret as "tall or no deal"
