    Not really put off by any thing as long as they dont inforce their beliefs on me.
    I suppose veganism does make going out for food difficult...never want to go to pizza hut with a vegan again put it that way. but its not the be all and end all.
    Already been in a relationship with someone that was bi and it didnt really bother me.
    edit: as for the poor job at least they actually have one

    I put that I'd be put off BNP instead of actually dumping them, I know a couple of people who have voted for them that are actually nice people; they just know nothing about politics!
    Vegan would put me off, not quite sure why but I guess I eat a lot of meat and I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that around a vegan.
    I wouldn't want to go out with someone that didn't want sex before marriage.

    "Don't believe in sex before marriage" = instant dump. BNP voter and vegan = put off, but if they were hot and the sex was good then I'd easily stay. The rest don't matter.

    Why are so many people put off by bisexuals?! I'm guessing this is the girls talking, not the guys...

    ...

    Don't pigeonhole all BNP voters with the overused, droning 'racist' stigma. Are you incapable of considering their motives, so you must spout a heavily emotional term which is practically redundant due to its childish overuse and misapplication, by people like yourself? I'm sure a proportion of BNP voters do hold racist beliefs, but you cannot apply that stigma to all BNP voters with such narrow-minded tunnel vision. To also imply that one suddenly becomes a racist upon ticking the box next to the BNP in the polling booth is a laughably facile argument.
    The BNP have a centrally racist agenda - they want to create an 'ethnically homogeneous' society (i.e. one which is as white as possible, in plain speaking). Yeah, this kind of stuff is in their manifestos, constitution and other official documents. BNP voters are either knowingly supporting this racist agenda, don't care about the racist agenda or are too dim to recognise the racist agenda - in all three cases they aren't deserving of any respect from me.

    Because guys are very turned on by seeing girls kiss (and go a bit further as well), whereas girls are largely disgusted by two men doing the same.

    And?
    Gerry Adams went from being an IRA terrorist in the early '70s to a revered peacemaker in the '90s. Lord Mandelson went from being a diehard Communist in his youth to being a money obsessive and baron. People's minds are never stagnant.

    I wouldn't date a guy who was a member of the BNP, or if he was vegan. I can't be arsed with fussy eaters. I don't 'do' bisexuals either - I just don't like it.

    Money is an issue - if he's permanently skint and I'm not, then I don't want to be footing the bill all the time - equal partnerships.

    Other than that, none of the others bother me. Your background doesn't define who you are and what you're capable of.

    Bi-sexual, BNP member, No sex before marriage- Noooo thank you.

    I have no problem with having relationships with people from poorer background or the same background as me. My boyfriends quite alot better off than my family and I do sometimes find it irritating how little he understands money and working for it. but then again I have alot of friends who aren't very well off and still don't think they should work for a living! :P

    if they were gay, i dont think it would work out ha.
    none of those really affect me, cos it depends what theyre like as a person i guess
    if they were bi tho, id be worried theyd cheat on me with a boy. thatd be worse than with a girl.

    The no sex would be a put off but if she was a really nice, attractive girl who I had a lot in common with then I think it would be foolish to dump her.
    The BNP thing obviously would put me off anyone.
    The bisexuality could be hot if it meant threesomes with another girl.
