I broke a girl on a first date recently. About an hour in, she started talking about 7 year cycles but felt it worked at 8 years for her. I replied by pondering on confirmation bias, and she just crumbled. Her face dropped, and she could barely speak. She realised that I had utterly no belief or interest in the spiritual foundations of her life that had dominated the first hour of the conversation. I've never seen a more powerful change in a conversation. I left before dismay and sadness changed to anger.

When it comes to online dating profiles, I'm wary of anyone:
Who defines themselves as 'sassy'
Who has a 'great sense of humour' without any evidence of this in their profile.
With a list of deal breakers
With a duckface photo
Who's entire album of photos come from exotic travel destinations.
Who says they 'love to laugh'. Surprisingly common. Opposed to all those who hate to do it.
I'll accept dancing as an interest, even tho I'll do anything to avoid it, but probably not shopping.
