4. No ambition 

I can’t sugarcoat it, and it’s better this way: ambition is a must-have for anybody looking for a serious romantic partner.

Both men and women tend to be drawn to those who exude self-assurance, work tirelessly, and aren’t afraid to take risks in pursuit of their dreams.

It’s possible that this is because those who are partnered with ambitious people are inspired to keep going even when they feel like giving up.

Everyone, I think, wishes they had that one person they could turn to when they were feeling low. A couple is like a team, right? You don’t want to sit around with someone who doesn’t have any goals because it will feel like they’re pulling you down.


  1. Person was going to say they were going to say something and never said anything so therefore I guess any turn off after 50 is whatever turns you off LOL

  2. Even married spouses need to take some moments separately from one another. These are times that need to revive ourselves with interesting things, hobbies, and being with our “buddies,” that is others of the same sex as our own. An old saying is, “Variety is a spice of life.” Too much of a good thing can be as bad as none.

  3. As someone who has had 2 previous marriages where friendship WASN’T a factor (3rd one is to my “first love” with whom I’ve been friends for over 40 yrs prior to our marriage) I can attest that #8 is in fact extremely true!!
