    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.
    Yeh, cos in the last 10 years Nick Griffin has suddenly changed from an openly racist, semi holocaust denying **** to become.......................... A slightly less openly racist, semi holocaust denying ****.

    Are you a Vegan?
    No. I don't like meat but occasionally eat it, can't have dairy for medical reasons.

    Oh that sucks.

    Well, dairy's overrated anyway.

    Meat on the other hand :ahee:

    I'm pretty sure I could convince most people to change their beliefs about anything.

    Being an idiot is a turn off to me.

    For me, it's more being worried about them dying or getting hurt :sad: And, selfish reason, but not being able to see them for months on end.

    Things that would put me off:
    -Burgers/hot dogs/fast food are his favourite food
    -He constantly uses 'text speak'
    -He dresses like a tramp
    -He needs a serious haircut

    Things that would make me dump him (though I doubt I'd ever get in a relationship with a guy like this):
    -All of the things from the other list, plus:
    -He refuses to use condoms
    -Is in or wants to be in the military
    -Doesn't realise that I only say no once and always mean it
    -Pesters me for anal sex
    -Makes fun of my opinions
    -Expects me to kiss/shag him when he's blind drunk
    -Gets drunk for the sake of getting drunk
    -Has poor personal cleanliness
    -Refuses to keep himself trimmed and presentable down there, whilst expecting me to do so
    -Thinks cheating is okay
    -Is a diehard football fan


    ...... I'm sure there's more. I had no idea I was so fussy :rofl2:

    Nothing, but I'd like to raise children that see their daddy every day. And keeping up a relationship and family life is going to be hard enough as a doctor let alone with my future husband away for half the year!

    I'm from an Army family and it really wasn't that bad. My dad was away maybe 2-3 months of each year (falklands, bosnia, NI etc) but if you're used to it then it doesn't really bother you. Plus it's awesome when they come back!

    Fair enough, I just don't think I could personally deal with it, and I wouldn't want to put my kids through it either.

    Omg, I agree with you 100% (minus the haircut, I like untidy, but clean hair).
    Junk food, armed forces, football - all absolute dealbreakers for me.

    I can't believe some of the girls on here would actually dump/not go out with a guy because he was a big football fan. I love watching football and following my team (Spurs) and its never occurred to me that it would be a dealbreaker for some girls.

    I absolutely despise football but I agree with you. It's like a guy saying he's not going to go out with your because you wear make up and spend x amount of money on it each month :p:
