Things Men Can't Stand in a Partner

26. October 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Everyone has something they can't stand in a partner, a quality or trait they refuse to tolerate in a romantic interest, no matter what. These undesirable traits are known as "can't stands" or "deal breakers". However, Western men and Russian women don't always agree on what's a relationship deal breaker. 


We asked over 3,000 members of HotRussianBrides, both male and female, what quality they consider to be a relationship deal-breaker. The members had 9 choices: too much partying, bad friends, poor sense of style, bad manners, bad in bed, bad hygiene, too needy, too demanding, and too controlling.

Here's how the men responded.



The two most common deal breakers cited by Western gentlemen are women who are too controlling (28%) and those with bad hygiene (20%). Other significant can't stands include women who are too demanding (16%) and women who party too much (also 16%).


Here’s how the ladies responded to the same question.



The ladies of HotRussianBrides and RussianLoveMatch dislike bad manners the most (23%). Only 8% of the men agreed. Men and women both can't stand bad hygiene in a partner, 20% of the men and 19% of the women made this selection.

So, what can women on HotRussianBrides.com learn from this most recent data? That gentlemen dislike ladies who have poor hygiene and those who are too demanding or too controlling. Too much partying is also a turn off. Of course, every man is different and only open communication will help you determine if you are compatible with a gentlemen you met on HotRussianBrides.com. Knowing the general things men like and dislike is important to helping you find, and keep, the man of your dreams.
