Dating news: being overweight is worse than being a racist.

The people at eHarmony analyzed what 720,000 of their members selected from a list of 50 “can’t stands” used to find their online dating matches.  Not surprisingly, these deal-breakers are similar for both women and men – no one wants a rude, lying cheater. (Weird.) There was, however, one notable gender discrepancy in the top ten. Men “can’t stand someone who is overweight”, which is ranked 9th out of the top 10. Uniquely more offensive to women is “Racist”, which ranks 10th. So, like, less of big deal than Excessive Overweight.
