Would this be a deal breaker for you?

 Is this good enough reason to break up with this guy?

http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/blog/51180/canyon+jump+from+400+feet+is+not+exactly+a+lovers+leap/

So, to recap: The girlfriend, one Jessica Powell of Meridian, Idaho, is all strapped in and ready to make the jump at this undisclosed location when she begins having doubts, and finally decides not to jump. The boyfriend, one Creighton Baird of Amarillo, Texas, has already jumped and is encouraging her to jump.

"All right, here we go," Graham says.

"No, Devin, not yet, not yet," Powell says. "I'm not going to jump. I don't know if I can jump."

Graham doesn't force the issue, saying, "I'll count down to zero. If you choose not to jump, I'm totally fine with you not jumping."

There are at least 10 countdowns that are for naught as Powell refuses to jump, and she keeps repeating, "I can't do it," until finally telling her boyfriend, "Honey, I don't want to do it."

"Put two hands on the rope," Baird says.

"Please don't push me off," Powell says. "Please don't."

"I am not. I am not going to push you," Baird says. "I'm not going to push you."

Then, of course, he pushes her. And as she swings to the other side of the canyon, you hear Powell's voice loud and clear: "I'm breaking up with you!"

     Yep.  If you can't trust someone then, the relationship won't last no matter how hard you try.

    I would dump him. It's about trust. It's about respect.
