We have a Halloween-themed Guide coming for you folks tomorrow, but until then, let’s kill some web space by running an afternoon comment diversion on deal breakers. A reader, Brian, suggested we run a diversion on things about your significant others that aren’t quite deal breakers, but make you scratch your head a little as to why you’re with that person. I’m not sure what you’d call those — how about headscratchers — but let’s throw that into the mix, as well. So, name a headscratcher on both sides of your relationship equation (or former relationship) plus three deal breakers (and for those of you who might be unfamiliar with the term, a deal breaker is the “catch” that a particular individual cannot overlook and ultimately outweighs any redeeming quality the individual may possess).

I’ll start:

Deal Breakers

1) Near the end of a meal, if a date “sops” up any remaining gravy/juices/sauce with her finger(s) (even once is a break-up worthy offense).

2) A preference for Leno over Letterman (broke up with two girls in college over this)

3) And this is shallow as hell, but excessive knee fat skeeves me out to no end (as in, her patella is a tiny, tiny island in an ocean of knee fat).


4) Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate likes to watch “Antiques Roadshow.” This pains me to no end.

5) Conversely, she’s a crazy hippy-feminist chick from an all-girls all-womyn college who could have never otherwise seen herself marrying a man who refers to anyone as a crazy-hippy feminist chick and watches football for 10 hours on a Sunday, sometimes while drinking beer.
