Want to lose her interest? Use one of these words.
It can take only one word to ruin a perfectly good date — as these 8 ladies had to learn the hard way. Their dealbreakers run the gamut — from obnoxious abbreviations, to demeaning references. Read on to find out which phrases caused them to call it quits.
"I have to say that the biggest turn-off is when a guy uses half words like 'sup.' Abbreviation used to the excess is getting out of control." -Lena
"The one that is the killer for me is 'dude.' Especially when a guy is speaking to me, referring to me as 'Duuude.' Ninety percent of the time they're not even aware that they're using it. It makes me think they're stoned and/or stupid." -Patti
"I cannot stand slurs of any kind. I dumped a guy who called gay men faggots. He also made a lot of horrible remarks about the gay community. The next day I dropped him. I couldn't be around someone so narrow minded." -Jo
"Referring to me as 'broad' is rude and demeaning. It takes your identity out of the picture, and makes you into just another female. That's like me just referring to a guy as 'penis.' As in, oh, just another penis walking around, no different from any other." -Brianna, 26
5. My Boys
"I don't understand how a phrase that is used by dads with more than one son has turned into a cool thing for guys to call their friends. When you tell me you're chilling with your boys I picture you handing out juice boxes to little kids or something. Also, I don't date boys, so..." -Janelle, 28
"It's just rude, and it reminds me of the guys on Jersey Shore." -Krystal, 26
"No, I'm sorry, your sports team did not 'rape' the other sports team that they played against last night. Your team beat them very badly. I promise that if being raped was something you walked around fearing, like us women, you'd be more careful about using that term." -Cara, 28
8. Slam Pig
"Why do guys make up these terms? Seriously, women just leave the less than attractive one night stand they had as just that, a one night stand. Calling the girl you brought home last night a 'slam pig' doesn't make your choice to have sex with an ugly girl any cooler. It just shows that you don't have enough self-esteem to try for someone better looking." -Cassie, 22
