You love spending time with this person and cannot seem to get enough of them… that is until your rose-tinted glasses tumble off and you realise this seemingly perfect human has faults, just like the rest of humanity.

While some of these faults are easy to overlook because, hey, you’re already in love and you’ll learn to love their ‘little quirks’ too, right? That's not always the case.

For some people these quirks can be deal-breakers – the reason you decide to end the relationship there and then.

To find out what deal-breakers irk Brits the most, YouGov asked men and women to reveal what traits make them the most uncomfortable.

A whopping 71 per cent of respondents said their partner’s uncleanliness would make them uncomfortable. By contrast, 21 per cent said they would be uncomfortable if their partners cared more about cleanliness than them.

Among the other top deal-breakers for Brits were your partner having less intelligence than you, being less easy-going than you and having both different religious and political views to you.

No wonder a record number of people cited ‘political reasons’ for their breakups in 2016, the year Trump was elected.

The attributes least likely to be deal-breakers were if your partner earned a lot more money than you, if they were funnier than you and if they were more organised than you.

Who said doing the dishes wasn’t romantic?
