The human mind is so intricate and everyone’s is so different, it’s always interesting to get an insight into what is going through other people’s. Especially when it comes to dating. While it’s true that you can’t please everybody, and what turns one person off may not bother the next – here’s a list of 50 things that put 2,000 participants off the most.

Queerty writes: “Fifty three percent of respondents said they formulate their opinion on someone within the first 15 minutes of meeting, and over half said they would drop a person who seemed otherwise perfect but had one glaring flaw”.

So, that’s how you know you better make that first impression a good one. ‘Cause clearly, they’re pretty important. Although it would be interesting to grasp what these participants considered a glaring flaw. Like, wearing crocs? Or, like, has a criminal record? Still, all we know is if they refer to themselves in the third person, the relationship is CANCELLED.
