    OK, poll added!! It's a bit controversial. The only problem I'd have is if someone was a member of the BNP. I'd be put off, but that's it. If I loved them, that would take priority. I don't know how the heck I would be attracted to them in the first place, but eh. The other options don't excite me at all, but they wouldn't put me off. In the vegan case it'd actually show a strenght of moral character. I don't agree with vegans for the record.

    "Don't believe in sex before marriage - Dump them" - Seems silly and trivial, but I don't think you can have a real relationship without the sexual contact

    I didn't say it was! It doesn't bother me. Anyway, hence the snobbish side.

    Dump for no sex before marriage because it's just not practical in my opinion.

    Would definitely dump for BNP, have you actually seen those vile f*ckers policies and beliefs?! I hate that peope vote for them and say it was "because the main parties are rubbish! It's a protest vote." If you wanna protest vote then you vote for the greens or an independent, if you vote BNP then you are racist, full stop.

    May be put off by vegan if they are militant vegans (as in they don't want you eating meat round them and wanna force veganism on you).
    However i would definitely be put off by "vegetarians" that eat fish. That's close to dumpable in my opinion.

    BTW for future reference can people stop saying why would you do this etc? I don't agree with ANY of the statements except I'd be put off by a BNP member.

    I'm not a vegan. Sorry maybe that came over wrong? Do you want to me to get into an ethical debate? I believe that they have the right to choose and I completely respect their right. Infact I admire vegans.

    They don't BELIEVE in it, that doesn't mean they won't change their mind (it happened to my best female friend not with me tho )
