It’s the year 2011 and Jerry Springer is still on TV?! Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either but after flipping through a few channels I stumbled across a show I’d never heard of, Deal Breaker, hosted by the one and only Mr. Final Thought.
Earlier this year, I interviewed a few fine bachelors about love and relationships and one question they seemed to enjoy most, “What’s your deal breaker?” Their answers ranged from the fine brown skinned bald headed guy who said a woman without wet wipes was a problem to the blonde hair blue eyed man who said a fine woman without a brain…and boobs was most certainly a deal breaker.
Much like the bachelors I interviewed, the basis of Jerry’s show puts people in a position where they ultimately decide to walk away from someone simply based on a few things they simply can’t live with or without.
I for one cannot judge. My friends often laugh at the memories of guys I decided to no longer date based on one or two things they did that drove me crazy. Remember Eddie Murphy in Boomerang? You know, when he’d pull the sheet back to check out his latest companions feet? Well I’m not that bad but I’ve definitely had my moments. I once stopped dating a guy because he smacked his mouth during dinner so loudly that I couldn’t hear myself think. While his smacking drove me insane, the fact that I cut him lose because of it drove my friends even crazier. Other than that and other small details, he was actually a good guy.
So it leads me to ask, do you think people are simply too picky with all of these deal breakers or do you have a few that would make you walk away as well?
