Men Answer: Why Have You Dumped a Woman After Initially Thinking She Was Fantastic?

So, true story. I was interested in this attractive, obviously intelligent woman I met via online dating. She was an atheist, which I wasn’t thrilled with since I’m a Christian, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to talk to her and see how it goes. We seemed to be getting along pretty well, she’s definitely interested in me and I’m about to ask her out on our first date. Then, she dropped this bomb into our conversation, “I think Christians have something wrong with their brains and we need to have scientific studies to figure out what it is.” Obviously, it didn’t work out.

Apparently, a lot of men have these stories. Here are some of the better ones from a thread about it on Reddit:

— Both in our early 20’s. On our second date she asks me how many women I have been with. I honestly say 4. She breaks out in hilarious laughter and says, “Wow what a loser, I have been with over 20 guys and more girls than you!” I dropped her off at her place, told her not to call me again because it just wasn’t going to work between us. Ended up having to change my number because she wouldn’t stop calling to apologize/tell me what an ass I was/apologize/call me a loser/repeat. My first experience dodging a bullet.

— Took a girl on a date a few months after we met (both really busy with grad school). Thought she was really sweet and nice but then she mentioned wanting to watch people get crushed by a falling tower. I couldn’t tell if she was joking so I stayed on that for a little bit. I think that made her think that I was interested in the same thing because she kept going, talking about all the ways she wanted to watch people die. All without any hint of a joke. I wrapped up the date pretty quickly after that revelation and took her back to her place. When she got out of my car she left a ball of hair on the seat. I definitely sped getting away from there.
