Host Thoughts on Dealbreakers Impacting Your Love Life

When I first entered the dating world, everyone who didn’t have all of the “perfect” qualities I was looking for automatically became a no, because it was a dealbreaker about this and that. I think overtime I’ve lightened up on what I find to be an absolute dealbreaker, like having kids or not having great oral hygiene. I’m happy Adam and I got to revisit this topic, since it was the first topic we ever covered on the show.  

Years ago, I had so many stupid dealbreakers, and now I’m a much more relaxed person. Unless something demonstrates a real dearth of character and detriment in humanity, it’s unlikely to be a dealbreaker for me. If you have a list of dealbreakers longer than 5-6 items, it might be time for you to reconsider that, as well as think about whether or not you’re perfect too.
