Petty and proud of it

Let’s be honest, even those of us who aren’t exceptionally picky, are still pretty picky. This is definitely a good thing when you’re looking for a romantic partner – but when does pickiness become a fat dose of pettiness? Fifteen Redditors discuss what are immediate deal-breakers for them.

5 ‘I had a date once with this really awesome girl. I asked a friend to introduce me to her. She was really cute and I was actually surprised that she agreed to go out with me. We watched a movie and had dinner. I walked her home and we held hands (which was really great because that was our first date and she was really out of my league).
