    Just curious. I have seen in my lifetime the dumbest reason men or women make to not date someone. I am guilty of that myself. I rejected a very hot blond girl that looks like Helen Slater from the old Supergirl movie because she had bad toes. Her feet had yellow toenails and they had bunions. Now years later, karma took it's toll on me and I was rejected for being too short.

    Guys and gals, what are some of the dumbest reasons you either rejected someone or got rejected for?

    I've been guilty of "rejecting" (although I don't technically do that) for the "too nice" thing. I like a little bit of spark. That doesn't mean I don't like nice guys. It means more that, at the beginning, I have to worry a little bit if they like me back.

    Than they have to LOVE me. '-)

    I regularly reject guys for having heavily groomed soul patches and/or goatees - a huge pet peeve of mine, though I appreciate full beards.

    I've been rejected for being vegan by guys who felt like meat at every meal was really important to them.

    Hoots, you're all talk and no follow-through.

    You told me you belong to another. I don't play that.

    A friend of mine was given the worst excuse ever from a girl. They had been dating for a few weeks and we're getting close to spending the night together when she texts him and says "I've found God, I'm becoming abstinent. Sorry x".

    flame_boy, that's rough...but not as rough as my friend J's boyfriend deciding to join a Buddhist monastery after they'd been happily dating for two years!

    Yeah, well, it's always attractive when they fight for me. At least a little. :rolleyes:

    Because he was circumcised... no, I'm kidding! That's not an issue! :)
    Um, one guy because he had bad english... another guy because never offered to go back to his place...
    And a guy, who has a fine income, but only has a mattress (let's say mat/rug) in his bedroom.

    I try to get to know people a little bit before you could classify us as a couple. I tended to break up with people over larger issues (cruelty, drug abuse, lying) However I was set up on a blind date once and I just could not bring my self to go out on a second date because he wore clear nail polish...and that just skeeves me!

    I pretty picky, so I usually reject guys for having ugly feet, or being too fat!

    I turned a guy down for a date because he was too skinny. That wasn't what I told him, though. We had been good friends for about a year, and I valued his thoughts, feelings, and friendship entirely too much to tell him he was too skinny for me. We were about the same height (5'8). I'm not sure how much he weighed, but you could see his ribs. I like a guy with some meat on his bones. And I'll date a downright fat guy. I can't do skinny, though.
