Sometimes when you're dating a person, something they say or do gives you the instant "ick" and makes you want nothing to do with them anymore. While it may seem petty, it sometimes just has to be done.
And when Reddit user u/BozEverInteriorasked, "What's the prettiest reason why you didn't go on a second date?" people had plenty of petty reasons to share.
So here are just a few of the petty reasons people decided not to go on another date with someone.
1."She didn't believe me when I explained how centuries are counted."
2."She picked up her phone directly after eating BBQ wings without wiping her hands off."
3."I found out she had a fear of spoons, and I couldn't stop asking questions about it."
4."He came to pick me up and was wearing a bowler hat and a tie-dye shirt."
5."She told me she was an artist. Genuinely interested, I asked if she was a musician, painter, sculptor, actor, etc.? She laughed and said, 'I'm a sculptor. I always wanted to paint, but I've never been good at dawling.'"
6."He asked me if I wanted a soda from a hot dog cart, and I said yes. He then asked me to get him one too."
7."She asked me to take her to the local amusement park and then let me know she 'didn't do rides' once we got there."
8."She kept dragging her heel when she walked."
9."She smelled like cheese. Not a delicate muenster, but more like a sharp cheddar."
10."I was really excited when this really handsome, very nice, and super-smart guy asked me out in college. He took me out for a nice dinner. I totally wanted to make out with him and had the opportunity on a pleasant late-night walk. Only problem, he smelled like baby powder and chocolate chip cookies."
11."I went on a date with a guy who constantly mouth breathed louder than the show we were watching."
12."He 'left his wallet in the car,' didn't go to get it, then proceeded to order the most expensive thing on the menu."
13."He was studying to be an orthodontist and would not stop commenting on how great he thought my teeth were. They were nice comments, but come on, dude. It was starting to feel like the creepy beginnings of a movie about a serial killer with a tooth fetish."
14."A guy rejected my offer to pay for a bagel and then spent the next 10 minutes explaining why he didn't mind paying for a $4 bagel due to his meticulous financial planning."
15."She laughed like a hyena that suddenly had a stick shoved up its ass. Like an intense shrill laugh followed by ending on a sharp, high-pitched yelp."
16."I homebrew, and she asked to try one of my beers. I told her that it was a double IPA, and she might not like it (she previously told me she hated hoppy beers). She told me it was delicious, but then I caught her pouring the beer down the sink."
17."Thirty minutes into our date, this guy asked me what my favorite movie was, so I said, 'Basically anything Tarantino has made.' He proceeded to go on a rant, saying Tarantino's movies were shit. He asked me how it was possible to like them and that they don't make any sense."
18."He kept making car noises. Not the occasional car noise; I'm talking full-blown rally car race noises for at least 40% of the date."
19."I went on a blind date, and at some point, the girl started saying, 'When we have kids, you have to tell them we met when you saved me from a burning house.' I was a firefighter at the time. That line was just too much for me, so I bailed on her."
20."He spilled ice cream on his shirt and didn't change before coming on the date. I wouldn't even have noticed if he hadn't pointed it out."
21."He said 'Okie Dokie' multiple times."
22."They had a weird gum-to-tooth ratio."
23."He told me that he believed that the Kardashians embody the American dream and that everyone should strive to be like them."
24."She asked me if I wanted tea, and I said yes. She then filled the cup with water and put it in the microwave."
25."Her dog was really aggressive when I showed up to pick her up. I actually like dogs a lot, but her dog was kind of crappy."
26."She ate all the bread you get before the meal arrives. I wanted some of the bread."
27."We were at a restaurant, and she ate something spicy and started coughing. Her face was really ugly when she was coughing."
28."She told me her favorite movie was Shooter, and I just couldn't let it go. I asked her like 50 follow-up questions and then kept bringing it up throughout the night."
29."On our date, we walked through a bookstore, and she couldn't point out a single book that she had read besides Twilight."
30.And finally, her second toe on her right foot was longer than her big toe."
