Everyone has non-negotiables when it comes to new relationships.
Whether you can’t abide a partner who wears Crocs or one that can’t cook, certain things are deal breakers.

"I don't want a dog to come in between my love life and not share the same bed...that's for sure," he said, according to a screenshot from a WhatsApp conversation that was shared on Twitter.
"And my mom (sic) doesn't like dogs in general."
Walia confirmed: this was gong to be "an issue".
