What someone does that really turn you off?Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Turn offs include:

Controlling people
Needy/clingy people
Dishonesty
Selfishness
OK, this one is picky, but it drives me nuts...animated emoticons in any communication...I can overlook one or two, but more than that gives me the creeps. :)

Bad teeth are number one as far as appearance goes.

As far as personality, if the man is rude to others, I'm out of there. And someone who is constantly negative is right up there too. If a person cannot be personable and friendly and positive, then I don't want to be around him.

"Less luckily, there's more and more nose hair. "

OK, that cracked me up. Add ear hair to that, too. They make razors for that type of thing. :))))

It turns me off when someone interrupts me - then takes over the conversation as if what I was trying to say wasn't important.

It turns me off when someone is judgmental.

It turns me off when someone attempts to control me.

It turns me off when someone thinks and acts like they know more than they actually do.

Good lord, the list goes on and on and on....

What turns me off? Long lists of things that turn them off.

Be positive. Be open minded. Be compassionate.

Loudness above all. There's nothing worse than a date with a shrieking voice which carries. Easily distracted dates (who keep looking at cell-phone, etc.) are date-killers, too. That's about it. Most women are decent and thoughtful on dates, so I've rarely had singular events happen that were huge turn-offs.

"Talking about oneself in the third person, like George Constanza. (George likes soccer, geroge doesn't like base ball etc.)"

you wouldn't like rickey henderson (ex-baseball player) then. rickey henderson loved talking about rickey henderson in the third person.

"- Complaints about my burping/flatulence. It's just gas people! You're much more harmed by gasoline fumes. There are just some table manners I'll never understand."

You have got a lot to learn kiddo. It's not hard to walk into the bathroom or step outside during dinner.

Talking about themselves. their likes and passions, but not interested in what others think or feel.
