BOY, BYE!

All the instant deal breakers that have kept me from finding love.

As a 5’10 woman, dating can be rough.


I always have to be ‘that girl’ who makes a big deal about height. That’s usually my main concern right off the back, but I would say that I always have my shortlist of qualifications (if you will) at hand.

  1. He has to at least be my height (bonus points if he’s over 6’1) (no offense to you short kings <3)

  2. He CANNOT be named Ryan (my brother’s name… gross)

  3. He has to have his license (I’m not your mother or your Uber driver)

  4. Basic manners and respect please (If he hits me up with some bullshit, hard pass)

  5. STAY AWAY SAGITTARIUS + GEMINI MEN (I swear they follow me everywhere)

Listen, I think my list is completely valid but more often than not, it throws guys off my roster faster than they got on.


I’m really not one for meeting men on dating apps, but there is one good thing about an app like Bumble:


I get to rule them out before even having to talk with them.


When I see an immediate deal-breaker on their profile, swipe left.

It’s the best timesaver out there.


Honestly, If you ever need to be quickly turned off by men, go swipe around on Bumble.


(This next part took commitment and almost all the willpower I had left in me.)


For your viewing pleasure, I gathered some interesting Bumble profiles from a typical swipe sesh to highlight the factors that led me to immediately swipe left.


Red flags, cringy bios, weird pics; I got it all.
