Number 10: They've never been married before even though they've been in long-term relationships
"There are lots of reasons one does not get married. Not the least of which is they just plain haven't met the right person. Don't count them out, maybe they wanted to marry someone and that person declined. Maybe they were working their way up in business and/or travelling a lot so as not to have the time to cultivate a relationship. Don't count them out based on that.... It's better than having multiple divorces behind them!"
Number 9: You're a fanatic about perfect grammar and they are less articulate than you see yourself with
"These days even news anchors speak poor English. The announcers for sports events have awful English and all of these people have done alright for themselves. If the person is open to it you can delicately suggest other ways of saying something that is more grammatically correct. They may change if they have any ambition in life and want to impress you."
