These Deal Breakers Could Be Keeping You From A Relationship
Researchers asked 5,541 singles to list their relationship deal-breakers. The group published their findings in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
Here's a list of the most common deal-breakers:
- Unclean appearance 67%

- Lacks self-confidence 40%
- Too much TV and video games 33%
- Low sex drive 33%

According to Cosmopolitan Magazine, there is no perfect soul-mate for everybody. What may be a deal-breaker for some, may be a great plus for others.
