Deal Breakers

There is nothing more absurd in my book than the idea of 'deal breakers' - lists that girls make up of qualities in men that they wouldn't put up with. TJ said it perfectly once: "he's perfect, but damn I didn't realise he collected Nazi memoraibilia - that's a deal breaker for me".

But I'm wrong. Deal breakers are a great idea, vital even. For example:

If a guy I was seeing told me he thought Rove was funny, then that would be the end of it. Deal broken.

I'm a firm believer in the deal breaker. Unless, of course, it's something completely ridiculous and nit-picky. But being a super-staunch republican would probably be a DB for me. Or being an ass to his Mom. Or...

I see deal breakers as being the result of learning from your mistake. For example....an addicition to owning and playing computer games/Xbox/Playstation is a deal breaker for me.

Absolutely not negotiable.

So this wouldn't be a good time to tell you I sometimes find Rove mildly amusing? Can you have "deal breakers" with sister-sister relationships? I guess the whole naked toddler in the fountain thing would have already done it by now!

I think Rove is ok at times, not roll on the floor laughing, but he's kinda cute in a skinny, white guy way.

Deal breakers? I have zillions. Too many to list. Yes, I'm in therapy :P
