Your date thinks OJ was innocent
of course Orange Juice is innocent,..dahhh.....
Your date orders a steak
all of the above!
Your date orders a steak
Damn ... no snuggling tonight!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Eeeek!! I would be running for the door over any of these!!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
These are all pretty bad.I can see them all happening together in one horrorfest.
Your date lights up a cigarette
Oh, wow. Everyone of these is impossible to fathom. Crossing my fingers I'm never faced with any one of them ~ phew!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Yuck to all!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I would want to know a person well enough to know that they would not be a part of any of the above situations before we went on our date.
Your date lights up a cigarette
Every one of the choices offered would be troubling to my conscience.  But the cigarette smoke would be so distressing to me physically that I could hardly be friendly or even give utterance to her.  I especially appreciate MilwaukeeProf's imagining them in a horrorfest.  Besides, almost all the other Member Comments appear to me to disapprove of every choice as intensely as I do.
Your date lights up a cigarette
Cigs make me nausested.
Your date orders a steak
I'd have to say all as well.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
After all the other choices, if my vegan date lit up a cigarette i might join him.
Your date lights up a cigarette
LOL all funny, but it wouldn't even get that far. For me a bad date would be: a strong connection is happening and my date tells me she's still married. Dating a married woman is a no no.
Your date lights up a cigarette
I don't love any of the options, but the cigarette is the most offensive. I have limited tolerance for simple minded people, so someone who thinks OJ was innocent or that Pussy Riot's incarceration or anti gay laws are justified wouldn't last long with me. I don't get self righteous when someone eats meat, but dating that person wouldn't be my first choice. The only time I think I ever got truly offended when someone ate meat was when I had spent all day cooking ravioli from scratch for someone and she decided to put meatballs on it; that was a slap in the face.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Yuk. Yes. these are all dealbreakers. At first I hovered over the steak ordering choice; but then I realized that I would never even be in a steak ordering kind of place. Tough choice the rest, but I'm going with trapdoor to hell #3; hunting animals for sport. [Assuming here you mean killing them.] A cigarette smoker, unless they recently emerged dripping wet from the sea, I could smell around the corner; so at least I would not be surprised. But a hunter/trapper/fisher/butterflynetter revelation would initiate and accelerate my immediate departure.
[Hope my answer is not too negative nor judgemental while still being crystal clear.]
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
Mmmm this is a very strange thought!
Your date lights up a cigarette
Smoking would be a physical discomfort if not just instant turn off. A big No-no to light up cigarette without asking the other person would mind it!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
None of these are good. Some are worse than others, but killing someone for sport is a line that should not be crossed.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
I m with Aligrasshopper. The least of all evil is cigarette smoke.
Your date orders a steak
Also,(Worst Date Nightmare) Cigarette smoker, and kills animals for sport...what's up with that?
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I don't care for the smell of cigarettes, but it would be the least offensive from a moral stand point. Tough choice between number 3 and 6
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Among these horrible objectionables, some involve cruelty and death.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
This has sadly happened to me....
As has the date ordering a steak and then pulling out his vaporizer. Apparently he considers himself a non-smoker because he doesn't use cigarettes.
Probably the worst thing ever for me would be finding out he's married. I have been the wife that was cheated on. Not going to do that to someone else.
Your date lights up a cigarette
Unlikely I'd end up on a date with a girl who hunts for sport, so the next worse thing for me would be if she smoked... although none of the options are appealing, smoking is a deal breaker for me.
Your date orders a steak
Yikes
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I can't choose, they are all bad..Hunting and Gay rights are huge to me
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Wow I seriously hope I never encounter any of those date situations...
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Bone
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
Je ne comprend pas le mot swell et ne connait pas l'histoire de l'Uganda, mais je suis contre l'emprisonnement pour cause d'homosexualité.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I have never understood this. Around my area the hunters are at least doing it to feed their family (even though I obviously don't believe in that either) and they assume you're a city "idiot" if it's just sport. Though none of the options above would bode well for a date honestly...
Your date lights up a cigarette
I've converted meat eaters before and to do that you have to tolerate meat eating in the beginning. People might be open to learning a more compassionate way even hunters. But cigarettes make me feel ill and I have zero tolerance for them.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Date over!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
My animal rights side would come out, people that hunt animals are the worst,
at least people that smoke are only hurting themselves, not innocent creatures.
Mind you smoking is a dealbreaker with me also.
Your date orders a steak
To sit there and actually witness first-hand someone eating a bit of dead tortured animal would be unbearable for me as a life vegan!
Your date lights up a cigarette
The sadist who used a bow and arrow on Cecil deserves to be incarcerated with deplorable prison condiitions.
Your date orders a steak
At least, if she hunts, I don't have to pay for her meat.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
This is tough as they are all no no's for me
Your date lights up a cigarette
Where is the get up and excuse yourself and head to the door and leave quickly. All of the above will do too.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Order a steak or hunt animals for sport are as horrible, but in the second option, the personn is conscious and take pleasure to kill a life being. So, I cannot accept a sadist ! I fight against this terrible behavior...
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I am certain that I would have little in common with someone who kills for pleasure
Your date lights up a cigarette
Eating dead meat full of contaminated blood, smoking and drinking are totally against my health regime.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Killing should not be a sport. I'd be horrified to hear that my date was a hunter.
Your date orders a steak
all of the above!!!Everyone here is a "deal breaker"
Your date lights up a cigarette
They are all pretty bad but I am literally allergic to tobacco (I get hives and swelling if it touches me and my respiratory system swells and clogs with mucus etc) so that would end up being the worst for me.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I actually would have checked each box if possible
Your date lights up a cigarette
Smoking, yuk.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Actually, all of the above.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Yikes, I sure hope this never happens!
Your date orders a steak
All of the above
Your date orders a steak
Get me outta that date !!!!
Your date orders a steak
no no dont do that bad bad bad byebye
Your date orders a steak
The smell of certain cooked flesh makes me wan to earl.
Your date lights up a cigarette
Smoking is a no-no. Kissing smoker lips is yuck. But steak comes close. Unpleasant Actions are worse than unpleasant opinions.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
Almost all of them, but I don't mind an outdoor smoker, as long as it's not in my face, in a building or car or around children. But, a homophobic, definite deal breaker.
Your date orders a steak
I would choose the first and second... someone who eats meat and smokes... who clearly doesn't care about his own health and who is ignorant of the welfare of animals.
Your date orders a steak
All of the Above lol
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
But really, all of them
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
all of the above are deal-breakers
Your date lights up a cigarette
Those were mostly really tough ones to prioritize. Cigs really bother me & my lungs & environment immediately. They show anti-self future health for us both of which evidence is clear even for 2nd hand smoke. "Second hand steak" is slightly more indirect/ tougher to prove ;^) I agree with "all of the above." If the person is unamenable to reason, to say, the 5 E’s of conscious living: Environmental, Ethical, Empathetical, Esoterical-metaphysics, Economical—well, I won’t have them in my inner circle or hangout with them much, & for me, they’re all intimate relationship deal-breakers.
[I’ve been shocked before—“I don’t actually inhale, I need the ‘fire element.’” Geeesh, then just let me smudge you with sage incense or something. “I just have to have some meat to feel grounded, though not red meat.” Sluggish is not grounding. It takes up to 6 hours for just the fats to clear the bloodstream, not to mention what’s going on in the gut (steak is 80% fat by calorie, brocolli is 50% protein & no fat by calorie composition.) I do ballroom dancing, & it seems the non-drinkers gravitate together, and the lighter diets are becoming more popular in every venue, even martial arts. Then I got a dance partner that taught her grand kids how to fish, but throws them right back in after catching...it's the only time in 10 years she's done anything like that, & she had just become lacto-veggie, now she's vegan for 4 years. I'm sure the fish are diggin' having hook piercings in the mouth or gill areas, & the greenworm bait are even more thrilled!]
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
1-3 and 6, all bad, deal breakers. #4, is it ok to think Michael Jackson was innocent? #5, what happened?
Your date orders a steak
All of the above.. But 3&6 are a close second :-(
Your date orders a steak
All of the above!

Thats should realy crazy...

I'd be like, what dating site did I meet you on?
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I'd shoot him in the groin, in the name of sport :)
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
anyone who justifies punishing people for something that doesn't hurt others at all is obviously an idiot / heartless. (but yeah, close call with hunting animals for sport :/)
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
check please
Your date lights up a cigarette
Usually a person that continuesent to smoke doesn't have regard for their health or the one their with
Your date orders a steak
HAPPENED TO ME ONCE.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.........
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
No regard for life.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Actually all of the above =P
Your date orders a steak
It was a toss up between four of 'em for me! :)
Your date orders a steak
Total turn off
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
All good selections for what will not work with me. Congrats to your staff.
Your date lights up a cigarette
all of them really
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
All of the above!
Your date orders a steak
Make the steak veal and you've got a clear winner, I think. The worst would be a date who is chewing veal with her mouth open while saying "You know, I think Pussy Riot got what they deserved. O.J. is definitely innocent, and that Uganda law is really swell." At that point, though, I'd think "Keep going, you're making this a good story."
Your date orders a steak
That's why I'm here!
Your date thinks Pussy Riot got what they deserved
Non of the above
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Cannot choose...most are horrid
Your date orders a steak
It would not be an option to go to a place that serves steaks, unless they were tofu or curd :)
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
tough to choose... all pretty bad
Your date lights up a cigarette
Hard to choose!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
closely followed by a steak, but i would make sure they a herbivore before a date
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Or that they order a steak. Either would be a deal-breaker. As would all of the others though I might cope with the occasional cigarette if the guy was really cool :)
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
honestly I think they'd all be horrible dates.....OJ being innocent, well, that's the least of my worries I would think, hunting at all,ordering steak (or any kind of meat) would be reason enough to leave, followed by Uganda's life imprisonment for gays....the rest don't even compare
Your date lights up a cigarette
BLEUGH!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
That is why I'm single she wanted to kill things.
Your date orders a steak
Hard to choose. All bad!
Your date orders a steak
Actually had a date hit almost all those bases.
Your date lights up a cigarette
I was married to a smoker and it was not fun.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
killing for fun...nooooo
Your date lights up a cigarette
All of them are quite terrible, but no no to cigarette!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
No tolerance for the stupidity of oblivious cruelty.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
When all compassion is gone, it's difficult to think they are going to change.
Your date orders a steak
How could that happen? a blind date, really? Not a wise choice for an ethical vegetarian. Your date tells you she "hunts animals for sport”, Is that so? how serendipitous, I hunt animal hunters for sport.In my opinion, the steak choice is by far the worst, more so then the heartless random shooting of wild animals, though they both are pure cruelty/ ignorance. That slab of steak represents support for a slaughter house “civilization” which condones the imprisonment and full life of torture of innocent animals by the billions, who’s horrifying lives and bloody cruel deaths are conveniently hidden. If slaughter houses had glass walls everyone would be vegetarian.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
I can't be around homophobes. Any bigots - racists,  sexists, transphobes, fat-phobes, the list goes on. To me they're no better than people who are cruel to animals.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Animals are loving caring creatures in their own way. For the most part, they don't hunt us
Your date orders a steak
All of them
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
I just can't stay next to closed minded people, especially fascists. I grew up next to one, trust me it's soul draining.
Your date thinks Pussy Riot got what they deserved
All of the above?
Your date lights up a cigarette
All are bad but definitely no cigarettes.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
Everyone has both good and bad qualities, we would not be on a date unless the person had at least something attractive about them. However I can't waste my time with someone who lacks compassion.How can I relate to someone who has no compassion?  I silently and perpetually live in disgust seeing friends and collegues eat meat, and if I found myself dating such a man, I would just, as always, decline another date.  However, I would leave the table and walk off if I had to listen to someone make hateful, ignorant remarks about "them" and and "those ..... ", especially racist remarks.  If I hear racist remarks, I feel my blood boil and I have to walk away or I would probably lose my composure.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
Any and all of these!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
If a person believes that hunting of animals is ok, then all of the other listed choices for the question falls into place as being wrong. No compassion for animals = no compassion for humans!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I mean, really!
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
We are all on a path but this last Perspective actively robs other humans. Disgusting and irretrievable. I'd just get up and leave, I think/hope.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
All :)
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
all
Your date orders a steak
Toss up really, between the steak and hunting, but most of these would be dealbreakers for me.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
They are all bad. But I am sure I could ride out any of these comfortably. But I woudl for sure make a gentle and timely exit in any case.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I doubt I would ever end up on a date with anyone who comes out with any of this but you never know. All are pretty bad...
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Clearly all of these are either insane or belying of completely awful personality traits. However, sorry hunting animals for sport take the cake in my book. Life imprisonment for gays is a close second but that's at least still in the human world. Gay Ugandans should not be treated that way nor should they be forced to leave. However, it is an option. They still can theoretically walk for weeks on end until they get to a place where the laws are different... Animals being hunted have no choice whatsoever. In fact, I take some offense at it being called "For sport" at all... It's not a sport if the other team doesn't even know they are playing. Maybe if the hunter goes out stark naked with no previously crafted weapons, but as soon as you put on shoes, you are cheating at whatever sport there already isn't.
Your date lights up a cigarette
after ordering and eating a steak.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I understand if you are living off the grid, but not for sport!
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Anyone who enjoys killing makes me nervous.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
This is stupid and insulting. How about a poll of ways to increase animal rights activism? Who is running this site?
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I don't think viewpoints are nightmares and I wouldn't like my date to light up, or eat a steak. I wouldn't mind, but we would have to debate about Pussy Riot. Uganda's ( Governments ) macho attitude is abhorrent, and I would think 'I have the wrong date here', but probably try and change her mind. BUT,. if my date told me she went hunting, I would excuse myself and leave (making sure she could get home safely).
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
The last three are positions open for debate. To order a steak, smoke or hunt means date has taken a moral position. None of the scenarios are 'nightmares' - I would prefer not to be on a date with any of them but steak/hunting options are least welcome.
Your date lights up a cigarette
All options are likely deal-breakers. However, I get really nauseous from second-hand cigarette smoke and would have to back away immediately.
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
If someone actually said this to me, I would leave immediately. I have no time for people with no compassion, even worse if they ordered a steak and said that they hunt animals for sport.
Your date orders a steak
All of the above are bad
Your date lights up a cigarette
Smoking is disgusting, and is highly self destructive, yikes!
Your date orders a steak
Hmm this ain't gonna work. Is it !
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
All of them are undesirable, i picked the most life changing one.
Your date orders a steak
At a temple restuarant!!!!
Your date orders a steak
All of the above... But really, wouldn't you have already figured this out before the date?
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Any one of the above options is anathema to me but the only one that would cause me to end the date on the spot is sport hunting. Ironically sustenance hunting would be preferable to ordering the steak. The bottom three are topics of conversation that would require patience and likely have a predictable outcome but nightmare is a strong word. Cigarettes were a possible answer but pale in comparison...
Your date orders a steak
I'd rather know beforehand so no ones time is wasted.
Your date thinks OJ was innocent
LMAO, only one, come on .
Your date thinks Uganda's life imprisonment for gays is really swell
None of the above would go down well with me.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Totally no go
Your date orders a steak
Worse: Your date takes you to a BBQ..
Your date lights up a cigarette
im allergy with cigarette
Your date orders a steak
They are all deal breakers. :-)
Your date lights up a cigarette
Really turn me off....
Your date orders a steak
First of all going out to dine is a choice of pleasurable behavior that humans do. Ordering off a menu that sells the flesh of my friends is not my idea pleasure. It makes me sick to even think of ordering food from such a menu and smelling and listening to others surrounding me at tables enjoying themselves. I can't do it and refuse to insult my Animal friends. I avoid supporting non vegan restaurants and eating beside those without a sensitive heart. I can't get pleasure from eating off such menus. No I don't eat with anyone who eats my friends. Animals are not meat! Way to stressful and upsetting for me to think it's OK to order off any menu that profits from slaughtered innocent beings. I refuse to conform or follow human patterns. It's wrong. What if your family member was on the menu would you just order the salad and support such business and enjoy a meal. I rather burn every restaurant to the ground.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Could never date a hunter
Your date lights up a cigarette
Smoking was the immediate physical item. I don't care to breath the second hand smoke as I walk away.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Eating meat = unpleasant, lighting cigarette=rude, hunting animals for sport=criminal
OJ will get what he deserves soon or later.
Your date orders a steak
So unsexy.
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
They're all bad in varying degrees except cigarette smoking is an addiction. No I've never smoked cigarettes but my sister does and she's a very compassionate vegan. I wish she would quit more than anything.
Your date orders a steak
They're all awful and sad.  :( Save
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
I do not tolerate a person who hunts animals for any reason, I am very obvious with my facial expressions hahaha I do not like to hide what I think or feel. If they hunt I do not want to go out with someone like that, if he consumes animals I could never even kiss him, never. So neither hunter nor steak...
Your date tells you that he/she hunts (animals) for sport
Any/all of them!
