Your description of a 'strong personality' is interesting. I've always thought of it as a desirable trait. Different strokes, I suppose. However I don't associate strong personalities automatically with oversensitivity, hypocrisy, hostility or aggression; I associate those qualities with those specific words. I also think that the most passive-aggressive people are the ones who couch what they dislike in vague general terms and I'd rather someone be direct rather than that. Again, YMMV.My Biggest turn off would have to be a Strong Personality.
I know its 1 thing to be confident, and to tell people directly what you have issues with as opposed to avoiding ineviteable clashes.
It's another to know sometimes you have to agree to disagree, that some Strong Personality People are quick to trade barbs but easily offended when things come to close to home.
(one eyebrow raised) What was that about furries?I'm by no means a label whore or anything when it comes to clothes. But if a guy is trying to get with me and he straight up wears affliction, nope, I'm over it.
Affliction, Tap Out, and Ed Hardy seriously have made clothing so the average person can tell who is an asshole, I swear.
On a separate note, I also hate bronies I honestly just dont understand the new my little pony. The plot is not good like everyone says and honestly it just reminds me of furries, which also slightly terrify me as I had one stalk me at a convention one year.
(looks around)You just need one absolute dickhead in any subculture to sour your view of the subculture as a whole. And there's nothing dickheads seem to like more than a place where they can be "special"
I tend to hear that a lot, both directly and from nerd friends. The significant others love the income and lifestyle that nerdy tech jobs provide but frown upon the hobbies and interests related to it. Boys will always have their toys, whether it's light sabers or fishing lures."You read comic books and watch cartoons? Aren't those for little kids?"

My retort is always "Ok, what adult, mature hobbies would YOU recommend I engage in?"
Yep, I'm with you on that one. Doesn' t matter who it is, but people who say stuff they don't mean (be it about plans / keeping in touch / doing something / feeling a certain way) sucks. Why say you will do something if you don't intend to follow through? It's like insulting my intelligence/ powers of memory to have the arrogance to assume I won't notice!Flakiness - I dislike making plans, setting aside time and then having it be for nothing. I can understand it happening once in awhile but after a certain point it is just so bothersome.
