    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Let's say you met someone, and on your first visit to her house, you had to get dead rats out of it.

    Would you continue dating her ... or him ... ?

    Please share why or why not.

    Thanks ... :D

    :heart:

    Peace,

    As in all things it depends on why I'm dating said woman and the potential I see in her. I can say without reservation that in most cases seeing a rat in the house would be a deal breaker. That's just nasty. Granted if she lives in an apartment then it might not be all on her. I'd make a suggestion of getting a cat and if she frowned on the idea I'd be gone like 2009.

    Peace

    Well, FIRST of all, if he can't get the dead rats out of the house without MY HELP, then he is definitely NOT a man I would continue to see! :lol:

    However, depending on where he lives, I would not immediately cross him out if he had rats in his home, especially if he is diligently trying to get rid of them.....But, if I observe other unsanitary behavior in him, then I'm gone.

    Y'all being hard on folks. Sometimes the rats die in the walls and you can't getthem out without hacking up the place. My question is why is someone allowing you to come to there home and the KNOW they gotta rat problem.
