    The grammar specialists at work are notorious for this.

    One of them is supremely undateable by many, and yet is one of the most interesting (but bitter) people I know. Hopefully he's not as completely undateable as some think.

    I haven't read this whole thread, but I can tell you from a vast amount of experience.....the one big thing that makes a guy undateable is if he's already married. Sounds simple but it isn't. Yet....more heartache has happened by some pie-eyed chicklet dating a married guy....who is at best a cheat by definition. Great way to start out, eh?

    Sorry if this is repetitious. My energy and eyes have been focused on Worlds.

    Dredging this thread up from the dead.......

    Bingo.

    I guess it was inevitable, but vh1 has turned this book into one of their many "countdown" shows. The snark is , and I gotta say, I generally agree with most of what they've listed.

    (best moment for me? When the "mandanna" was cited, and they cut to Bret Michaels for a soundbyte )

    In terms of shallow reasons, the dealbreaker for me is dirty fingernails. Oh, and even worse, long unclipped toenails. Eeewwwwww.

    A guy who is a work-a-holic, who's only hobby is going to the gym (which he does from midnight until 2AM), has an hour long conversation and leaves the conversation knowing very little about you because he has talked mostly about himself and hasn't asked you anything about yourself...

    Oh wait, I went out with this guy just this week... No second date.

    Here's one. I met a guy not to long ago who I was really digging. But, he talked about his kids' mothers so badly that I had to mention it.

    How can dog someone that you thought was good enough to reproduce with but now she's a ho, b*tch, skank, and all of that? You didn't know that before? This, to me, says more about you than your former S.O. How long before I become all of those things.

    I can't believe poor hygiene wasn't top of the list. Nor STD's. I guess those are "understood" but seriously, if a guy passes those two tests the rest is negotiable.

    You would think hygiene ranks high, but it doesn't. One of the security offices who works with me has dated more women than should be legal and his hygiene is questionable at best. Pig Pen immediately comes to mind.

    besides good hygiene, which IS important to me, I have 2 basics requirements.

    1. Must be employed.

    2. If he's drinking, bettter be a special occasion of some sort. And I don't consider
    "today is Tuesday" a special occasion.

    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I feel like I've been out with this guy a few times myself (or close replicas)!

    I think I went out on one date with that guy's long-lost, hippie, crunchy-granola cousin!

    He tells me how mean and awful and terrible and difficult his son's mom was.

    Five minutes later he says, "You remind me of my son's mom."

    I have heard many stories of girls / women whose boyfriends, drink heavily, do drugs, cheat, beat the crap out of them, and the girls keep going back for more. Were any of these things in that book?

    The book was meant to be a joke.

    But I must add to my already long list of disqualifiers. I'm watching House Hunters, and Neanderthals who think they need a "man cave" are out.

    Um, by definition doesn't the requirement for a "man cave" mean they are already in a fairly serious relationship with someone, which in itself should be a bigger disqualifier ...

    BTW, I hate the term "man cave" - I hope most people use it ironically, but I suspect not.

    Hate to be shallow, but skinny legs are a deal-breaker for me.
