What feature would be unignorable in a sexual partner?

joja joja
I couldn't be with someone in the military, or who regularly went on long business trips. Couldn't do it. I struggle enough with being away from my partner as it is.

I know a ton of people who will agree with you. That's why it's one of the top choices. I was surprised it wasn't brought up more considering it's a relationship killer where I'm from (military base).

I couldn't be with anyone that had an STD, or that was on drugs. I'm a CRMJ major and plan on being in the police force. The drugs is just a no no, and the STD.. lord. I'm a complete phobic of germs in general, so I really couldn't handle an STD.

Domestic abuse and addiction go hand-in-hand too often. I put addiction because of that fact. My ex did roids while we were together. He was fine when he was smoking pot, but as soon as he couldn't get his hands on it, he'd lash out, especially at me.

I believe he was violent from the steroids, if I read her post properly.

Addiction would definitely be a dealbreaker.

Yeah, initially I only checked off politics but I would change that answer now if I could to include addiction.

At the time that I voted my partner was very addicted to heroin and also doing a lot of other opiates, benzos, pretty much whatever was around. I didn't like it but at the time was not fully aware of how many drugs he was doing (I didn't know he was mainlining) and how often because we are currently living an hour or so from each other. We have been together for two years and he's always done more drugs than I cared for, but only in the past 6 months did I really start to see it becoming more than I was willing to tolerate.

I have known a lot of addicts including family members and friends, and I think that consistent exposure made me feel like drugs and drinking to excess were normal parts of life. I finally saw with my partner that it wasn't, and that he was choosing heroin over his own health, safety and even his life. I could see that if he didn't even value his own life then he certainly couldn't value our love or my health, safety or anything else. When your partner does drugs it's like they're cheating on you around the clock with someone that you know they love better than you and would pick over you if they were forced to choose. He hated heroin and what it did to him but he needed it more than he wanted to be with me.

So, yeah. I guess addiction has become a deal breaker for me. I made him choose, and he chose to give up drugs, but I would have left if he hadn't. You can have a beautiful love and relationship with someone that has an STI/D - even an incurable one - but you can't have that with a junkie.

Aww I'm so sorry to hear that. ((Hug)) Addiction is definitely different than an STD because it's a substance becoming the driving force of a person's life and then every important person in their life takes a backseat to it. Just not the kind of position to make a happy, stable relationship.

From what I read, the weed calmed him down from the 'roids. When he ran out of pot and the steroids were going full blast in his body and mind, (without the pot to help him maintain) he was violent.

So, no, no violent pot smokers. I've known a lot of weedtokers in my day, never met a violent one.

A brain. And not being able to use it. Stimulate my mind, and my body and soul is yours to command.

Everything else is just gravy.

I'd like to be able to pick and choose what I would like in a partner, but I am unable to do so. So long as they are healthy and have a sharp brain, they know how to use it, I am a goner and theirs.

But to be with someone who is not keen on improving himself or keeping his noggin stimulated? I would not be happy as I'd not be intellectually challenged.

I dont know if I could deal with it if my partner had a tattoo of the Macabre Logo on them. Especially if it was a full back tattoo. I kinda like macabre, but this logo and the people who sport it seriously make me wonder.

I agree with this so much.

I don't mind *responsible* drug use, but addiction is definitely a deal breaker.

Yeah, those would be my 3 deal breakers also. Addiction, STD, and/or abuse.

#1 S T D's. Sorry, I don't have any, want any and will go without before getting. Thirty of forty minutes the first time is not worth a lifetime. #2 Alcohol and Drug addiction. #3 Mental health issues or a major life experience from the past that has never been professionally addressed, diagnosed and or treated with a certain acknowledgement on current and future considerations. (Think this is too much) Sleep with someone before knowing them, look around at all of the sad situations. I want better for US, or unfortunately; no future at all. No one gets hurt. I have my morals, ethics and life to consider, first. Anyone with lovers and partners around from their past. Too easy to fall back, I have seen it too much. I believe in commitment and moving on together. Or you should not be out in the first place looking for LOVE. But, you can definitely go out and have a drink.

There are so many things that would be deal breakers for me. I am a very picky person. And I think you SHOULD be picky when looking for a long term relationship. When you are looking for someone to share your life with, you should be picky. Be very, very picky. It's for your own good.

Oh most certainly, yes! But the question was more for sexual relations and not long term relationships.

i voted STDs but addiction as well. i'm sure i would try to help someone out of it but there's not much you can do if someone is unwilling to quit themselves. i'd hate to be a drag with someone who contracted an STD or HIV but i simply couldn't put myself at risk. it would have to be a non-sexual relationship at that point.
