What are the things that turn you off ?

There are several things that turn off a man or a woman. As for me, I am usually turned off by a loud and boastful man. When he brags about how big a baseball star he was/is, when he winks at every woman he sees, when he seems so overly confident and overbearing. All of these totally turn me off. I would rather be in the company of someone modest and humble, than with a boastful man who is so full of his own accomplishments. I am also turned off by rude manners. I guess all women are. No matter how dashing or handsome he is, if he has no manners then I'll run away as fast as I can. What about you? What turns you off?

If the guy only thinks about himself, then that's a major turn off for me. I'm into guys that are caring and humble too. It's important for him to have a good heart.

i get turned off with people who aren't thankful in any way. i mean, there are people that even if they have so much blessings already, they still complain about life and everything. they don't seem to be satisfied and just be thankful. these people are someone i don't like as a company. they irritate me.

The perpetual whiners - they will always be irritating because they whine about almost anything, not being able to appreciate what they have. They could never be happy if they don't get satisfied and thankful with what they have.

The things that turns me off when someone pretends to be something that they are not and people that lie. I don't like fake people and I don't like liars.

Boasting and bragging drives me crazy, but number one on my list is what I call the "I have" syndrome. I just hate it when a person, man or woman, goes on and on about their possessions. Material things are very low on my list of important things in life and I just can sit there and listen to others who make "things" so important.

Touche' on that one. Material things are not a priority in my list too. It's enough that I have the basic needs fulfilled. Thanks for that invaluable information.

I find bad breath a turn off..garlic breath too (my boyfriend lovesss schwarmas with taziki (sp?) sauce) And for some reason I find guys who wear tank tops (not wife beaters..like think tshirts witih the sleeves cut off) I dont know why I just find it really unnatractive. Aside from that, Im really not picky and for the most part persoanlity matters more then anything else. The one thing that makes me mad tho in a relatinship is when my boyfriend is kinda.. not all there. I mean as in, my boyfriend now has horrible ideas sometimes and I dont know where he thinks of this stuff

Bad breathe, well, if I can tell him frankly he'll have to brush his teeth, then perhaps. If I can't then, it's a drifting apart then. Thanks for the comment.

I am usually turned off by men's arrogance and careless boastings. I did not like people who esteem only people having prestigious position and ignore lowly people. I consider such arrogance untolerable.

That's four. Arrogance is really a big turn off. I do appreciate your comment.

The things that turn me off usually depends on my mood at that point of time. But there are some things that turn me off irrespective of my mood. When a person starts speaking on a topic that does not interest me, it turns me off. Others include slang language and profanity, unhygienic practices. One more thing that turns me off is when people come to my place and waste my time.

That's another, wasting your time. They waste your time also when they don't show up on time for a date, right? This turns me off too, Happy MyLotting and thanks.

Well earlier I thought there's not a such thing that can turn me off so easily..!!! But I just came to know the truth ... and that is I hardly get turned ON..!! May be because I have so many hidden divisions.. that I have just discovered. I thought I was an open carefree girl.. But no..there are many things that turn me off.. I hate it when some one is too loud!! (having a manly voice is a different thing) I hate too many pimples on the other people's face!! (I can be understanding sometimes but when your face is FULL of pimples..Ewww!!!) I hate it when the guy is just too sarcastic. (humor is good and I can even take jokes on myself easily but there's a limit boy!!) And Like you even I don't like a boastful man. (I mean c'mon it isn't showing any confidence in you its just a self obsession MR.!!) It is quite a turn off for me when a guy treat me as a goddess!! (you have some self dignity or NOT??) And BOYS please STOP being so mysterious!!! Its a BIG TURN OFF (My man will be like a song whose rhythm is on my lips but the lyrics still slips away) (I like it when a guy is little mysterious but pa...lease every thing has a limit!!) Honestly manners are not that important for me!! Believe me manners DO NOT suit every man's personality!! Some are just perfect in the rough way itself.. not clean shaved, careless .. arguing all the times.... One thing that IS important is try to find out your own original personality. Being so much filled with etiquette does looks like a fake sometimes.

I have to agree with you. I call men that are loud and boastful, "Show Boaters." They brag about themselves and I find this annoying. I recently started dating a wonderful man that is not like that at all. He is attentive and sweet. He doesn't have to brag about how great he is. It shows in the things that he says and does. He makes me feel like a queen. Yes, there are some really great guys out there still. I met him on the internet, amazing!

Actually the things that really turn me off are poor hygiene and smoking. If a woman has poor hygiene habits that would be an instant turn off for me. Also if I see a woman who smokes I am turned off because I really don't like people who smoke in general.

it's also a turn off for me if a person does smell so bad. but there are times that we have to try and ignore that fact. there are those who are naturally born with "bad" smell and eventhough they try so hard to smell better, they just can't.
