They usually feel the same way, in 30 seconds as well!
It's a little hard to imagine this ritual of 30secs of sniffin

Don't dogs do it, too? I guess we are animals, afterall, anyways..

I don't date vegetarians, vegans, French speakers, workaholics, dog-haters, the geographically dyslexic, Francophones, people shorter than 175cm, tobacco users, or French people.
Well that leaves me out.... Oh, wait, I'm married!



When I did date, I couldn't deal with whiners, fictional characters and picky eaters for very long.

Re: Dating bias

The clothing bias is not totally without reason; your dress sense is often influenced by socio-economic factors. I love Ed Hardy - it's a sure fire indicator of full blown chavness, like wearing an expensive dunce's cap. Super Dry shirt on a guy in his fifties - midlife crisis anyone? Leopard print in a non-ironic way - trying just that little bit too hard to be sexy... And so it goes...

We all have different kitch filter, me thinks...

I surely get this super linear assumption making, it may be valid for loads of folks and their clothing style. Haven't seen so many midlife crisis characters here in teen clothing, tho, to be honest, more class here than anywhere.

But having lived and functioned in all sorts of layers of society, the most class does not come directly from socioeconomic factors. Actually the best clad people and classiest (which has nothing to do with brand names, by the way, nor just purely clothing) were not the richest ones who tend to rely on status and brand names irrespectively of that thing actually suiting them or not.

The worst things I have seen on people were not in squats but uber rich US member only country clubs. And it wasn't the clothes that would make me discriminate against them as non dateable material, but some of the opinions they had.

In terms of clothes, tho, and superfitiality when judging, if clothes are hand made then, yeah. If they look home made then noooo

Re: Dating bias

See, I like men in chinos and button down shirts - a friend of mine finds this downright repulsive, she digs guys with beards and long hair, which in turn puts me off. Suum quique!

Was thinking about dating bias/prejudice and wondered if EFers have any funny bias on who they will or wont date?

I guess I should start : I don't date vegetarians or vegans.
I don't date vegetarians or vegans.
I don't date grumpy men.
I don't date men who like to give the golddigger test, I have my own money and don't need anyone's money.
I don't date smokers.
I don't date scrubs, players and married men.
That leaves me with the 1% available men. Just kidding.

I don't need 30 seconds, I think 10 seconds is enough for me for me to figure it out.

LOL well Iron Man never took off his costume during my dream.
I woke up from my dream and was thinking wow what was that all about?
Then I realized the reason why I had that dream was because I checked out some comics couple of days prior to my dream. See below.

Re: Dating bias

Oh, I forgot to add.
I am a heterosexual female and I only date males.
I am not interested in dating females.
I think one EFer is disappointed at this aspect, and hopefully she gets over it. She seems rather pissed though.

Hahah, that's exactly what I thought..

Something tells me there is already a line of volunteers waiting to help with this "problem".

Just pass her over, especially if she is hot, we will help out.

Re: Dating bias

Before I married:

-no smokers
-no machismo males
-no video game addicts
-no dudes with short tempers and filthy mouths
-and this list could go on and on

...there was a lot more on the "must be" list too.

I guess I was pretty intentional with dating and thereby avoided a lot of heartache (and meaningless relationships) and was fortunate to have quite a few really quality guy friends, and now my husband. I'm glad I was picky.
