Being someone who always enjoys discussing the topic of dating, I got some popcorn out when Redditor u/[deleted] asked the question, "What's The Most Petty Reason You Stopped Dating Someone?" The responses are all really over the place. Here are some of them.

25."I dated a smoking hot guy, then I found that he was a clown for children's parties and had a collection of clown artwork. No one is hot enough to consider integrating a clown collection into my home, much less a clown."
