4 Dating Deal-breakers Shared by Top C-Suite Execs

A-List photoAs Columbus, Ohio’s only high-end personalized introduction service, A-List Introductions specializes in working directly with the area’s top C-Suite executives and business owners. We thoroughly vet, interview and then introduce the city’s most eligible singles; creating chemistry and making hundreds of connections. Part of our success is attributed to having our finger on the pulse of what our clients need. We recently asked 25 top C-Suite executives (male and female), who are currently single, to share with us their dating deal-breakers:


Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is a relentless struggle for busy business professionals; especially compounded when juggling a professional life with dating. Maintaining an equilibrium and keeping their professional and personal life separate is critical. Our 25 single C-Suiter’s expressed a common train of thought: the desire to meet someone who is supportive and understanding of the time and focus allocated to their careers. Demanding and chaotic schedules, delayed responses to texts/phone calls – they happen; intolerance and a lack of empathy are a huge red flag and subsequent deal-breaker.


Confidence is a definite prerequisite for dating a successful C-Suiter. There is nothing more beautiful than a confident person! While a commanding and cocky attitude may be attractive to some, our single C-Suiter’s prefer someone comfortable in their own skin; versatile with a positive attitude, capable of holding their own in social-settings.


Meeting someone self-reliant with their own life (interests, hobbies, friends, etc.) and an established career is essential for dating a successful C-Suiter. They desire to meet someone independent who complements their world; someone ambitious who possesses the wherewithal to challenge them in a positive and productive way. Needy, co-dependent, complacent personalities are a definite deal-breaker.

Healthy Lifestyle

Our 25 single C-Suiter’s were all in agreement that a healthy lifestyle is a significant requirement. Healthy habits – being active, eating right and maintaining a positive attitude are must-have qualities. The #1 dating deal-breaker was NO smokers.
