A woman and her date each had a moment to talk about their interests. The man was into lawnscaping, which meant he maintained people’s lawns, kept them weed- and pest-free, and made them aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

When it was her turn to talk, her date did not seem impressed and even told her she had nothing interesting about her.

2. Vengeful and Resentful Partner

This woman once dated a guy who gave her a comment that she wasn’t sure if it was flattering or insulting. She said the man suddenly touched her face and told her she should take better care of herself.

In her defense, she said her dark under-eyes are genetic family features. And what did he expect from a mother who was divorced and had kids to look after?

4. Money-Spending Social Climber

When he was still with this woman, the guy shared how his now ex-girlfriend would always book Airbnbs. She’d asked him to pay and, when he refused, would talk about how her exes paid for all their trips all the time. The man also loves to travel and said he and the girl were into the same stuff, which is why he was drawn to her.

But he later realized that he should have considered someone who shared the same values over someone he had similar interests with.

5. To Smell or Not to Smell?
