I'm seeing a girl right now and she wasn't initially my type on paper but since I'm open to dating whoever, I went with it. I've recently discovered she studies History of Art/Art History as her degree and I'm feeling really turned off by it. Is this normal? Is this enough to make someone stop seeing her? Or am I just acting like a bit of a **** lmao?

Trust your gut instinct and listen to what your feelings are telling you.
Different people have very different attraction dealbreakers and relationship preferences.
If you have a dealbreaker connected to educational background, degrees or employment- that's fine.

You're being a bit of a ****. You thought she was perfectly likeable before you found out what degree she's studying right?

you are nitpicking.

women tend to do that with men they are not that into and find faults with everything. faults they would not even see or readily overlook if they were more attracted to him.

I'm assuming you're a male so I guess men do it too with girls they're not that into

It's up to you. You're allowed to have whatever preferences and dealbreakers you want. She isn't entitled to a relationship.

If that's enough to turn you off, you were probably looking for an excuse already.

I don't have an overly strong view on this tbh.

But to play devil's advocate slightly, surely OP's allowed to have preferences and dealbreakers? A girl isn't entitled to a relationship just because she studies an "academic subject".

i would rather she studied something like that. an intensive/"smart" course like CompSci, Engineering, Medicine, Business (like me.) I want to have a more that capable girl tbh and taking a degree like history of art just seems like she puts her heart over her head because she has a safety net to fall back onto.

my bad, I'm starting to think I was already looking for an excuse before I started even dating her. Little things she did like phrases she would say would just strike me as annoying and I wouldn't want to talk to her. And i wouldn't like to initiate conversation either
