    I said I would dump a BNP supporter and would be put off if he didn't believe in sex before marriage- the former for obvious reasons, the latter because I think you should try before you buy.

    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.
    Jesus Christ keep your knickers on I was only asking how you disagree with it.

    I don't think he ever said he did disagree with it did he? I thought he said he admired their strength of character?

    You thought correctly!

    Anyway enough about vegans, if anyone wants a debate about vegans...well I would give you a link but where would I start? There's normally a daily vegertarian/vegan thread.

    He said 'I don't agree with vegans, for the record.'

    Nah, I don't like meat but I still eat it. Can't have dairy for medical reasons.

    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 )
    Well i thought when someone didn't believe in it they wouldn't do it :P Should have specified on the Poll "They don't BELIEVE in it (but might change their minds)" Haha

    However i would definitely be put off by "vegetarians" that eat fish. That's close to dumpable in my opinion.
    SO your talking about pescitarians then

    Not necessarily. I should have been clearer, it isn't what people eat that bothers me, it is their motivations for the choice.

    I don't mind people not eating meat but eating fish if it's just because they don't like meat. The problem i have is people that don't eat meat because they don't think animals should be slaughtered for meat or because of cruelty etc but who will still happily chomp down on fish. It's incredibly hypocritical.

    Sorry, should have been clear in the initial post that when i said vegetarians i meant veggies who don't eat meat on moral grounds.

    Some things just don't work. Your partner wanting to deport you is probably one of them.

    I would break up with someone if they were a member of the BNP or if they didn't want sex before marriage. I would not mind about bisexuality or a poor background at all. I would LOVE them to be vegan.

    Why bisexual? How could that be a turn off? O.o
    Well, not for boys, of course.

    A girl, on the other hand, might not find the fact that her man has been with other men that attractive.

    Other put offs:
    Excessive alcohol drinking
    ex-junkies (a relapse would always worry me)

    Other reasons to dump them:
    Someone into drugs
    Someone with absolutely no ambition

    I find the whole poor background thing but at uni quite attractive. I like seeing people taking some initiative.

    My 'other' is - 'I work away a lot'. I don't think it's snobbish though, just don't want to be with someone who I wouldn't see for periods of time.

    Currently trying to help my boyfriend find a new job.

    The only one of those on the list that would put me off someone would be if they joined the BNP....no need for racism in society. We are all the same, skin colour etc doesnt matter. No sex before marriage....at my age I would say that the majority of men have probably been married anyway.

    Only put off by one thing in that list - no sex before marriage, which, haha, makes it seem like it's my entire life.

    (it's not)

    edit: oh, the BNP. I'd laugh at them until they had to leave. Great.
