Apparently 1 in 5 of us have ended a relationship with someone because they were extremely messy.

Think about it...If you would have just thrown your clothes in the hamper instead of leaving all over house, maybe you wouldn't be alone right now.

Would some of these things be a deal-breaker for you?

  • a dirty toilet
  • spoiled food in the fridge
  • toothpaste clumps stuck in the sink

The research, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Rinse, found cleanliness can also play a deciding factor romantically for some people. Of the 47 percent of Americans who have been in a relationship with a messy partner, one in five have broken things off because of it.

“The reality is, chores can be a major source of tension in a relationship. You can remove some of that tension by outsourcing certain chores like house cleaning and laundry, and avoid an argument in the process,” stated Kelsey Flittner, Marketing Spokesperson for Rinse.

A woman that I know would upon first meeting a guy check his fingernails...if they were long or dirty...see ya!
