Street Talk: What is your dating deal-breaker?

Caroline Lutman

“A deal breaker for me is if a guy doesn’t make the first move. If he doesn’t make the first move then he has no chance.”

Tommy Smarin



“When a girl has a substance problem it is a deal breaker because then you’re getting into something. I haven’t met someone who could deal with meth in their life.”

Travis Hayes Busse


Media Studies major and Music minor

“Smell is key. I don’t want to date someone who smells really bad, that is a pretty big deal-breaker. I also don’t like someone who doesn’t listen and talks a whole lot and doesn’t really care about what you have to say. Someone who can’t dance, too. There is no way I’m dating someone if they can’t dance or at least try to dance.”

Dennis Lambert


Philosophy and International Business major

I think there is a deal-breaker with lying. If someone is a persistent liar in almost every aspect of their life I don’t see how you could ever trust them. It is more about them being true to themselves than being true to me.”

Jared Rolis


Architecture major

“The first date outfit has to be good. I like tight pants, fedoras, and glasses.”

Chris Hasselburger



“A girl who takes herself too seriously [is a deal-breaker]. Someone who can’t goof off and can’t have fun without taking herself seriously all the time.”

Haley Johnson


International Business major

“[It is a deal-breaker] when someone isn’t very intelligent. If you can tell they cannot carry an intelligent conversation it’s pretty much a deal breaker for me.”

Sarah Roberts

Graduate Student at the School of Education, English major

“I think it’s good to have [deal-breakers] and know yourself, but interacting with someone could change your views on those things and to allow yourself to be changed by other people’s points of view. Some deal breakers are negotiable but if you feel they aren’t then that comes down to your personal choice and decision.”
