Some of the general takeaways: deal breakers are more potent in long-term relationships than short-term (you're less invested in your partner when it's a fling, and far more willing to overlook the annoyances); women have more deal breakers than men, possibly because the risks are more dire (i.e.they're looking for someone who can support them through rearing a child); men and women who consider themselves to be highly desirable and have a bevy of favorable traits have more deal breakers; and people weigh deal breakers more heavily than deal makers—more so for women than men—meaning the negative attributes will overshadow any good ones, no matter how good., the researchers supplied 5,541 single U. adults with a list of 17 negative personality traits and asked them whether they would consider them deal breakers in a mate in a long-term relationship, the reports.Even though more women than men considered the traits to be deal breakers, there were more similarities than differences between the sexes.
