List Rules Vote up the worst LA-specific things. People can be mean and boring in any city, but living in Santa Monica is only a problem in LA.

The Los Angeles dating scene is tricky, because it's full of actors and musicians and ugh just a lot of weird people. But as with any city, dating in LA also has many other unique dating hurdles to jump and some real deal breakers to look out for. For instance, do you want to date someone you can only see on Tuesdays at 11:30 am because the traffic to and from your neighborhoods is so bad? No, probably not. This idea and more make up this list of dating deal breakers for young (and old!) singles in Los Angeles, CA.

What do you hate about dating in LA? Why is finding a relationship in Los Angeles so hard? Probably, it's the lack of street parking at your potential lover's apartment. Or maybe you find out he/she knows someone you went to high school with. I mean, goodness, you didn't move here to chat about the old days. Then there are those special individuals whose dating site profile pictures are their actual actor headshots, and that special breed whose parents live right there in Malibu. Good luck ever spending a Thanksgiving anywhere else!

Another LA dating scene nightmare is that person who doesn't own a car. You will soon be falling in love as you drive another person really everywhere. Maybe if you are lucky, that same person is a DJ in the nighttime hours. Eek!

Upvote the Los Angeles specific dating dealbreakers that make you pump the breaks on a budding romance faster than taking Fountain instead of Hollywood at 3 am. Then, be sure to take stock of your own romantic history in the City of Angels, and add any other dating red flags fellow Angelenos should look out for.
