Dealing with cigarette smokePage 9 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Dunno. Smoking is an absolute deal breaker for me.
It doesn't matter how little the guy smokes or if he's trying to quit. I am a little allergic and the smell of it bothers me a great deal.

I'm sorry to tell you this but results of a study can be skewed,bent and spindled any way the group,organization or individual wishes them to be.


Thank you. I've been saying this for years, be it smoking or drinking, medical research, et al, and no one seems to grasp the concept. When money, profits, and peoples careers are involved, "there are no facts, only data to be manipulated." And people will believe whatever they want anyways to best serve themeselves.

Smokers claim they don't stink, but they do. And cigarette smoke is obnoxious.

Smokers can't smell their own smoke odor. Really. Just like you can't smell your own body odor. Try lighting up a really smelly cigar when you're with a cigarette smoker; they will hate the cigar smell, yet tell you cigarettes have no such odor.
I don't think most smokers have any idea of how much they stink to other people, because they really, really can't smell it on themselves, so they really believe that everyone else is over reacting to it.
There's really no way to get around it; if he smokes, he will stink. Just get used to it.

So do most women with the perfumes they wear.

"most" ? not sure about that.. maybe the women you associate with. I wouldn't say 'most'-- although some do

but it's not only women, some men drench themselves with stench-fume as well

Not for me personally. There are many people who get migraine headaches due to the perfume women wear, one reason many doctors have notices in their offices that it is a scent free environment.

Smoking is a deal breaker for me. If by any chance I would ever be tricked into going out with a smoker, the date would end early and never be repeated.

I wouldn't mind an occasional smoker. However I would tell that person not to smoke around me.

yes, and to a non-biased person that stench warning would seem at first glance to apply to men as well

not sure why you think it ONLY applies to women. I've been made to almost puke by some god-awful stench/cologne men wear as well

I'm kind of partial to BO mixed with the rancid odor of designer knockoff cologne.
