Are Strange Quirks Endearing Or A Dealbreaker?

Fortunately enough for me, I'm not chasing men away with my hang-ups, but I wondered how many people would be chased away from someone who had phobias that they just couldn't get a handle on. I asked the ladies their thoughts on the subject. Could someone with strange quirks stand in the way of true love for them?

Science Of Love: Here's The Secret To A Successful Relationship

In a recent study, scientists found that not only do close relationships make for happier people, but they also contribute to our overall well-being. Those who have intimate relationships are better able to achieve goals and, with the support of their loved ones, they have higher self-esteem, less stress, and feel a greater sense of purpose.
