People Are Sharing The Weirdest Reasons Someone Stopped Dating Them — And At This Point Being Single Seems Like A Blessing

Let's be honest, dating isn't always easy, and these Reddit users can attest to that. Recently, u/milfstarbright asked the Reddit community about the weirdest reasons someone stopped dating them, and the responses delivered.

1."She found out I was Asian; she thought I was Hispanic the entire time. We had been going out for almost four months."

Man in suit gestures in disbelief during a conversation

2."I had a friend who wanted kids. Her longtime boyfriend had been adamant about NOT wanting kids. Then she found out she had a condition that would make it a lot harder for her to have kids, possibly impossible."

3."Dating me made her realize she was ready for love again, so she dumped me and got with her ex."

Woman expressing sadness with text "It feels pretty over."



4."Apparently, I was 'too nice.' I briefly dated a guy, and he said it was a turn-off that I was super friendly with staff at restaurants and grocery stores, gladly held doors open for others, smiled when I passed people on the street — that kind of thing."

"He wanted someone who valued themselves more and that being nice like that is advertising I’m a doormat."



5."I was an EMT. We went to see The Twilight Saga: New Moon. A guy a few rows ahead had a seizure, so I had them stop the movie and call an ambulance while I got the guy out of the aisle."

"They refunded everyone and canceled the show. Never heard from my date again."



6."I was out on a date with a woman who told me that she enjoyed smoking meth and playing Beyblades with her roommates. I told her that's not my jam and I wouldn't be down for that environment."

7."She went to Jesuit camp over the summer and came back and said everyone convinced me to dump you because you're Greek (Greek American) and I'm a Christian. Needless to say, I was dumbfounded no one there realized that your heritage/nationality wasn't a religion, as I was also a Christian."

8."In high school, I knew a guy who broke up with a girl he adored because his friends started calling him a chubby chaser. Frankly, I thought she was adorable (and maybe 30 lbs. overweight at the most), but, more importantly, she made him happier than I'd ever seen him."

Snookie saying "Grow up."

9."I told him I do a basic background check of my dates' names in the provincial crime database (it just searches for public files). I was a 24-year-old woman living alone in a big city, so I always check out the guys before getting into their cars."

Woman holds phone with intrigued expression, caption "I'm gonna look that up."

"This came up naturally, and the guy flipped out about how I was a narc and how I can't be trusted."



10."I bought her a talking troll doll. Remember the troll doll fad in the '90s? She hated them, but I had no idea. I saw one that spoke some trendy phrase she used a lot and bought it for her."

11."I don't know about the reason being 'weird,' but a guy I went out with only a couple of times ended things with me right before our next date, because I hadn't slept with him yet and he found a girl who put out faster than I did."

12."A few weeks into dating this very handsome man from Munich, he said, 'My penis. You will like it.' I laughed and said, 'Maybe.' The following week the guy told me that he did not find this to be a 'mutually beneficial relationship anymore.'”

13."There was a girl that I'd been dating in high school for a couple of months. She told me mid-date that she didn't like that I got more attention than her when we walked into parties — where we both knew people — so she broke up with me."

Woman gesturing with her hand, expressing emphasis, with the text "Pay attention, puh-lease."

14."She had her hair cut slightly and I didn't notice."

15."I had a guy who told me he couldn't love me because we had never been through anything terrible together. We had only dated for a few months when I was 18. He said he could only love someone if he went through something traumatic with them, like the death of a loved one."

16."The first time she stayed over at my place was also the first time we were intimate. She broke up with me the next day because I turned my back on her during the night. Who sleeps in one position all night?"

17.Finally, "I matched with someone on Hinge who talked about Spotify in their profile. I sent a message saying, 'What was your song of the year, last year?' They told me the name of the song, and I admitted I had never heard of it. They then replied, 'Is that some kind of joke?' I said I genuinely hadn't heard of it and asked who it was by. They then said 'Taylor Swift,' and immediately unmatched me."
