New year, new love! But before we jump into a rewarding relationship, we have to get through the first date, which always has the potential for disaster. Some of us might be more forgiving of first-date faux pas, and of course one person's deal breaker might be another's deal maker. I've rounded up 10 common situations that might sour you on a potential lover and I want you to tell me: would these things prevent you from going on a second date? Vote "deal" if the dilemma wouldn't be a factor and "no deal" if you'd decline another date.

Every Friday, I round up the week's best, funniest, strangest, and most embarrassing moments in television for your amusement. It was slim pickings over the holidays this week, but I still found a few priceless bits to share.
- Thanks to the year-end "clipdown" episode of E!'s "The Soup" for reminding me to revisit this too-funny moment from "Dancing with the Stars," in which Joey Lawrence ... um, I'm not sure there are really words for what he does. I'll borrow from one of the judges, who called it "George Michael meets the Village People on a cruise to Brazil."
- OK, I admit it: I turned on the yule log in HD for a while on Christmas Eve. Here's the thing: Logs are really ugly in high definition.
