Poll: What are top dating deal breakers? Not race

Tell us your top dating deal breakers by clicking here...

The biggest finding of a new poll from Oxygen Media shows 90 percent of Latino and African-American women, and 85 percent of white respondents say they're OK with having a future partner of a different race than their own. 

And the singles I asked about it in the CBD recently confirm race really is a non-issue to most people.  A man waiting for lunch in the CBD said, "Interracial dating?  Absolutely, fine!"  Another man said, "I love the idea of it."

Oxygen also asked singles what's the one thing that would stop them from going on a second date.

For guys, the top deal breaker is a mustache on a woman.  Most men I talked to in the CBD about it agreed, the mustache doesn't work, but one man said "A dating deal breaker for me is bad teeth.  Jacked up teeth just isn't going to cut it.  They got to have a nice smile, something pleasant to look at across the dinner table from me."

Another assured me that nothing is a deal breaker for him, with one chiming in sideburns on a woman are just as bad as a mustache.

For women, it's body odor on a man.  "Body odor is definitely a deal breaker, but so is an over-perfumed man," a woman downtown told me, and most women agreed with her.
"On the question of religion, 80 percent of the 833 people questioned in the poll conducted by Research Now, said they would be fine with a future partner practicing a different religion than their own," according to Oxygen Media.
