LET'S TALK ABOUT SOME OF OUR MOST COMMON DEALBREAKERS
The DATEABILITY Matchmaking Experiment is now over.
Thank you to the 20 singles in our community who have willingly put their hand up for a first date introduction! It's been such a beautiful privilege to get to know each of you over the 1-hr Skype Love Readiness Assessment, discover your MBTIs, and learn about what attracts you to the opposite sex! Insofar these are the most common dealbreakers found in the process of matchmaking.
I gathered data on 10 women and 10 men.
Here were the findings:
1. A man's height matters... as in, 8/10 women want her man to be taller than her when she wears heels.
2. Smoking is a turn off to 19/20 women and men, no matter how sexy you think a cigar looks, boys!
3. Project confidence and certainty. 7/10 women will be able to tell instantly through looking at your photo how confident you are as a man!!!
4. Being more than 15min late for a date and not apologising will guarantee NEVER seeing the person again. It's just disrespectful and communicates you think their time is not as important as yours. (18/20)
5. 3/20 singles refused a match because he/she reminded them too much of a family member. Ha! 😐
6. 10/10 women agree that men who plan what to do on the date are extremely attractive.
7. When you see a woman's photo and find her attractive, give her ONE compliment and leave it at that. Over-complimenting before even meeting her is a turn off, say 6/10 women!
8. Children from a previous relationship/marriage is something to be open about on the first date, which 5/20 singles happily did through the DATEABILITY Experiment.
9. Age is not as important as similar life stage and intentions. I.e. The man who hopes to get married and have babies in the next 18mths will not be compatible with the woman who wants to keep career building over the next 2 years.
10. Race and religion hinges on each party's FAMILY'S openness. SO for these 20 singles race did not matter, but they would be concerned about their family's acceptance of bringing home a partner of a different cultural background.
