“’If you don’t like me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best,’ except worst and best mean the same.”

If she ever says anything close to ‘I need a man who can handle me.’ No, I don’t want to handle you. You should be an adult by now, not a child who can’t be responsible for themselves.”

“This is the one I always think of. I’m not looking to date a suitcase.”

Rudeness

If nothing else, at least be a nice person.”

I’d like to add an arrogant and ignorant personality.”

I don’t see what those women see in those fake eyelashes and nails. I can’t see the appeal.”

Constantly late, which wastes my time. I want people to be true to their word.”

“My girlfriend is like this, and it drives me absolutely insane. If it’s work-related she’s always very early, but if it has to do with anything or anyone else (me, her friends), she is ALWAYS late. It’s just a massive form of disrespect, in my opinion.”
