    Posting Unfunny Memes Or Egotistical Pictures Of Yourself

    From Redditor u/peppermint_Mocha4:

    The type of pictures he has. Shirtless pics, him in front of a car or holding money, weed or alcohol. Memes that are basically saying that women are supposed to serve men. I refuse to entertain those types of guys. They're useless and have an inflated ego.

    "Accidentally" Saying Something Rude

    From Redditor u/ilovetotour:

    As for the pet name stuff, I can’t stand things like “mama”. Also, sometimes they might accidentally (or purposely?) say something sexist/racist/whatever so that’s a big no-no too.

    Using Terrible Grammar

    From Redditor u/peppermint_Mocha4:

    Their grammar. Had another guy message me who thought that he had to type the way he talked. Instead of writing "the", he would write "duh" instead. I can't deal with that kind of mentality.
