Whether you start a conversation with someone in a bar, at work, or a party, there are some moments when a person begins talking or makes a comment, and it just doesn’t sit well with you. Some people let it roll off their backs, while others walk away from the conversation and never look back.
These situations happen all the time, and people often say, “I just knew I wasn’t going to like that person.”
In a recent thread on Reddit, a user asked: Have you ever listened to a person talk for less than a minute and knew you weren’t going to get along with that person? What did they say?
Boy, did the internet answer! Here are 5 reasons Redditors say someone may not like you.
Being Judgy and Talking Negatively
One top comment was, “They talk negatively about someone else in a very judgy way. There was this mom in my daughter’s school who seemed to “know” everyone, she talked to me and she spoke so bad about these people. Then moments later I saw her interacting in a “friendly” way, with those she was judging.
My eyes rolled so much I could see my brain telling me not to get involved with her. And I was right because by the time school year ends, her “friends” hated her and they were talking behind her back too.”
A Redditor shared, “Started at a new job, went for a team dinner and the very first thing he did was talk about how bad the dating scene was in the city and how “ugly” all the women are…
The dating scene was absolutely fine btw, I pull out of the conversation and then he just continues to ramble on about how smart he is vs everyone else.. safe to say I’ve been avoiding him since.”
Making Fun Of Others
A popular comment was, “I remember seeing someone for around 20 seconds (They didn’t seem aware of my presence) and they were already making fun of me because I simply walked by.
They made fun of other people too, but the fact that they just met someone and immediately targetted them for harassment is a red flag bigger than most poles can handle.”
A popular comment said, “You’re late. I’ve been here for ten mins already.” I was only 5 mins late for the date because I was looking for parking and had let him know.
Another Redditor said, “When you’re 3 minutes late and they complain because they’ve been waiting 30 minutes because they chose to show up early.”
One of the most liked comments was, “I’m a female person. I once met a woman who told me she hates women and has no female friends because women are too much drama and she’s just one of the guys.”
Another responded by saying, “I’m one of the guys.” Oh, you mean all women hate you? Wonder why.”
One user chimed in with, “Finally, someone chimed in, I hate the “If you do me this favor, I’ll be your best friend forever” Like, no you won’t. Nothing would change except now I know I have to buy my way into a “friendship” with you. Hard pass”
Another Redditor hates, “How does one think “no offense“ changes anything about an obviously offensive statement??”
Finally, a user said, “You don’t scare me.” Wasn’t trying to scare you in the slightest.”
One Redditor said, “It’s all about the tone for me.”
Another responded by saying, “Exactly. You could say anything, but how you say it is what makes the difference.”
What about you? What makes you immediately know you will not be friends with someone or what has been said to you that was a massive turn-off to you?
