tell me girls is it shallow to not date someone because they have bad teeth?Page 4 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
This whole "shallow" thing has gone too far. Listen, if I don't like bad teeth, I'm not dating someone with bad teeth. If I don't mind bad teeth, then I'll date them. Hell Jewel has a snaggletooth and I'd tap that ass like there was no tomorrow!

No, not at all. I think teeth are very important, it reflects good health and how much care someone puts into themselves. They don’t necessarily have to be perfect or straight for that matter but certainly white, no plaque with fresh breathe. It’s really not too much to ask for in my opinion when you figure the amount of time you spend kissing someone you are involved with.

Of course not. As a x hygienest I have seen the nasty. Go with what you like and don't settle for less. Who cares what anyone thinks. Do what turns you on.

I don;t think it is shallow------I had a friend who was a dentist and she told me that tooth decay is transmittable-----I don't know if this is true-------But for myself----I like a guy with all of his teeth and they have to be clean!!!!

I hate answering a question with a question but this time it's appropriate.

Is it shallow for a guy , not to date a girl, purely because she's got flat tits? Not because she's got at attitude problem because of her flat tits. Purely because she's dead flat?

I would never date someone that didn't brush their teeth. It's all part of the personal hygiene thing. I brush mine 3-5 times a day.

Also, my oldest was listening to an HIV POS speaker at her college and he said that there has been a case where someone contacted HIV from kissing. It is fairly rare, but it was because they both had bad teeth and some bleeding of the gums due to inflamation.

That's like asking if it's shallow to not date someone because they smell funky!
If you aren't attracted to someone for whatever the reason, and it's not something that you can't overlook,
then it isn't necessarily "shallow." It's just your preferrence. Like preferring blondes to redheads. You just prefer
white straight teeth to grey and yellowed jagged ones.
I know someone that doesn't care that her boyfriend's teeth are REALLY bad. Teeth aren't of big importance to her.
I, however, don't want to put my tongue somewhere that doesn't appear to be of the utmost cleanliness.
Teeth ARE of big importance to me. Call me shallow. Call me picky. But if you're teeth look rotten or are kept in a glass at night....
DON'T call me! lol

Shallow? No way! I have had more men then not have missing and/or terrible teeth! What is up with that? Would they like to be with us or kiss us if WE had a snaggle tooth, green no less....sticking out from the front of our mouth?! Or have our lips twist sideways while trying to talk, because we have no teeth to support them! geez...I got so tired of it I posted it in my profile! Nice guys, some attractive but quickly became UN attractive due to bad dental hygiene!!!

Apple n Oranges! Bad teeth are preventable! If a woman has small or no breasts her health and well being is NOT dependant on it, nor is it offensive to anyone, except possibly a shallow man. Not taking care of oneself doesnt compare to dealing with what the good Lord gave ya!

This is such a touchy issue. My fetish is TEETH. I absolutely LOVE teeth. I have a 4k $ smile and this obsession roots back to my father. If the person is all you are looking for other then the smile then go for it. I once dated a few guys with bad teeth. Although teeth says a lot about a person I was able to look past the minor flaw and glad I did.

I would have never thought that bad teeth would be a problem for me, until I dated a couple guys with bad teeth.

False teeth - not a problem
Crooked teeth - not much of a problem
Missing teeth - not much of a problem

What I consider bad teeth, which are a turn-off to me, is rotting teeth. Often if someone has rotting teeth, they will also have bad breath.

Though if they were planning on getting them fixed - well okay - but I have learned to pay attention to what priority they put on getting them fixed. When it comes after luxury items, then they don't really plan on getting their teeth fixed.

How come we are talking about this? Take a look at when this thread and question first originated:

1/8/2006 859 PM

After I read three or four posts, I stopped since swtgirl states that the person's teeth are black and missing. I have a friend who works in a half-way house with drug users. He told me that black and missing teeth means past or present drug useage, usually cocaine (? spell).

So I would say run! run!

I dated a girl with bad teeth ....lol (from this site) She was a beautiful nice loving person , just not the greatest smile. She was always hurting from the pain of bad teeth and still was a beautiful and nice person ...I only broke up with her because her heart still belonged to another ...not because of her teeth. You might miss out on a great person for such a shallow reason .....If the girl I had met was not still attached I would have had one of the best parnters in my life.... bad teeth and all

I am a tooth freak. It is nearly a disorder. I declined to date a person for a whole year because he didn't have teeth (I think he has some in the back). When he asked me out, my kids just laughed their heads off, Oh RIGHT, Mom is going out with somebody who doesn't have perfectly white, straight teeth, we believe THAT.

But I finally said okay. He is the sweetest, cleanest, best-smellin' man I have ever known. You won't believe it, but I just didn't see the teeth anymore. Don't ask me why, because that is something I would definitely say matters to me, and yes, I knew I was shallow and was mildly ashamed of myself.

It was more a "type" than his smile, actually. I could just never have seen myself with his type. I am not exactly sure what happened (it's a story) but we aren't together now. He broke my heart.

I want that year back.

blewsclews..... do you know what you said in your post? it is quite funny! you said you declined to date a person for a whole year because he didn't have any teeth, except perhaps some in the back of his mouth. Then you went on to say that you finally started dating him because you didn't see the teeth anymore.

Of course, you didn't see his teeth since he doesn't have any---------------------


Okay, I know that is not what you meant. I realize you were trying to say that the teeth issue became unimportant, but I couldn't help having some fun with you.

^^^^ My kids tease me about my teeth fetish too. One time my son was at Target with his dad. He tells me the next day, "Mom, I saw the perfect guy for you at Target. Then I saw his teeth and they were nasty and knew to forget that one"

I think taking care of one's teeth says a lot about the person. I don't think there should be a reason to let your teeth go. Brush and Floss........... it isn't that hard.
