Daters get some answers to 'Why am I single?'

Daters get some answers to 'Why am I single?'

Let's face it.  Valentine's Day can be a bit of a bummer if you're single.  But Morning Express wants to change that! So we got a group of 5 single guys and 5 single ladies together to pull back the curtain on what the opposite sex is really looking for in a relationship.

Most of the women on our panel seemed to agree that a sense of humor, honesty and ambition are must-haves in a guy they would want to date.  So it would stand to reason that lying was tops on their list of deal breakers.  A close second was any guy who's too obsessed with himself.  "I think we’ve all gone on dates with guys that are self-important and self-obsessed," Ashley said.  "You’re wondering why you’re even there because they’ve given you their entire resume and they haven’t asked you one question about yourself."  The ladies' biggest word of advice for a guy who has just started dating someone new is to pick up the phone and call.  As Taylre put it, "I don't want an intown pen pal."

The guys on our panel had more varied answers when it came to what they want in a partner.  Still, intelligence, confidence and motivation seemed to be common themes.  The guys also mentioned some physical attributes like eyes and smile, or as Breon put it, "She's gotta look good."  When it comes to deal breakers, insecurity or jealousy was at the top of the guys' list by far.  They called it a relationship killer.  "If you go through my phone, you will find something you don’t understand and you’re not gonna like it," Mike said.  "Then it puts me on the defense and I have to explain myself and that is just exhausting."  Other deal breakers our panel mentioned were things like being a social media addict, using drugs or having bad relationships with family.
