Science Analyses The Biggest Relationship Deal-Breakers

Social scientists at Western Sydney University have compiled six studies involving over 6,500 people and their omnibus study has come up with a definitive list of relationship deal breakers for both men and women. The results are excellent and gender-bending to some degree.

Starting with the criteria for a quick shag or one-night stand. That´s easy. The only deal breakers were “smells bad” and “has poor hygiene”- “Basically, for short-term partners, if they have a toothbrush, they’re good to go,” said Gregory Webster, associate professor of social psychology at the University of Florida, to the Wall Street Journal.

Nicely phrased. Yes, every girl who wants to escort Ibiza clients for us or be a Marbella escort needs to carry a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant and perfume!

But the factors that women care about are not those that stereotypes would have us expect. Kindness? Good potential parent? Nope. “No sense of humour”, “bad sex” and “lacks confidence”. Clearly what we want is an Alpha who makes us laugh and come till the windows shatter.

Sounds right.

Men were only more concerned than women about “low libido” and “talks too much”.  Which proves that quantity of sex matters over quality and men are generally less verbal. Shock.

But both genders agreed on the three worst “deal-breakers” – being “disheveled”, “lazy” or “needy”.

Interestingly, that´s exactly the same things that my girls in Ibiza and my escort friends in Marbella find off-putting!

So here is the full list:

1. “Disheveled or unclean appearance”: 71 per cent of women, 63 per cent of men

2. “Lazy”: 72 per cent of women, 60 per cent of men

3. “Too needy”: 69 per cent of women, 57 per cent of men

4. “No sense of humour”: 58 per cent of women, 50 per cent of men

5. “Lives far away”: 47 per cent of women, 51 per cent of mentumblr_n0lkr9HTKU1rfj6pmo1_500

6. “Bad sex”: 50 per cent of women, 44 per cent of men

7. “Lacking self-confidence”: 47 per cent of women, 33 per cent of men

8. “Too much TV or video games”: 41 per cent of women, 25 per cent of men

9. “Low sex drive”: 27 per cent of women, 39 per cent of men

10. “Stubborn”: 34 per cent of women, 32 per cent of men

11. “Talks too much”: 20 per cent of women, 26 per cent of men

12. “Too quiet”: 17 per cent of women, 11 per cent of men

13. “Blunt”: 17 per cent of women, 11 per cent of men

14. “Does not want children”: 15 per cent of women, 13 per cent of men

15. “Has kids”: 12 per cent of women, 14 per cent of men

16. “Too athletic”: 10 per cent of women, 7 per cent of men

17. “Not athletic”: 6 per cent of women, 7 per cent of men.

The take-away from this? Men and women want the same things. Deal with it and move on.
