Did you ever date someone with foot odor?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
The father of my daughter has the WORST smelling feet. I hate when he comes home from work (and keep in mind he has a desk job) and takes his shoes off and I'm practically gagging from the smell. It's horrible. I've tried everything, washing his shoes, Lysol-ing them, bleaching his socks. The only thing we havn't tried is an anti-fungal cream for his feet. I wonder if it would work.

Take a bar of Ivory soap, cut it in half, put one piece in each shoe...really it DOES work...

Just wondering, do all men have smelly feet?


LOL no... not all of them... I've met some that have zero foot odor whatsoever and it's just in the type of shoes and type of socks they wear.

However, I did date a fellow who, when he took his shoes off, within 15 minutes, my entire house reaked of foot odor!! I mean it was horrible. He was aware of his foot odor and sprayed his feet and shoes every day as well as clean socks each day.

Come to find out, his PH balance in his skin was so unbelievably high, it was what was causing the odor. He couldn't even wear jewelry.. his skin would corrode the jewelry. His sweat odor was much higher than normal, everything.

I tolerated it for about 6 months and got him to taking his shoes off outside and leaving them on the porch. (He had a lot of great qualities so I couldn't let the stinky feet be a dealbreaker).

Not sure what ever happened to him or if products have evolved enough today to counterbalance that PH level and bring it down a few notches... I would surely hope so though. I'd hate to see his stinky feet keep him single for the rest of his life.....

I believe it would be better having someone with stinky feet as opposed to other stinky parts......

Lush makes an AWESOME foot mask that gets rid of odors, and makes your feet smell like cinnamon hearts for a week. Seriously, it's a miracle in the summer.

Not all guys feet smell bad. I went out on a couple of dates with a guy. Then invited him to my house for dinner. I cooked plenty, but this guy devoured everything. Ate so much he didnt have room for the cake I had made. We make our way into the living room, well, he did, I was cleaning up the dishes. When I arrive into the living room, he is asleep, with stinking feet parked on my coffee table. You had to hold your nose. He had probably worn the same pair of socks for a few days. I sprayed the room, then I sat down, coughed a couple of times, turned the volume up on the TV, still snoring. He only woke up when I dropped a book on the coffee table. Then I said, "your tired, you need to go home". He then said, "I'll take a piece of that cake now". I wrapped him up a piece to take home, and told him, "I really need to get to bed" He never understood why I didnt want to continue on with the relationship.

No. ALL men do not have stinky feet. My ex never did and our boys don't either. My son's best friend (19) has the most awful odour ever. The kids take of their shoes right inside the back door, and if Kyle's shoes are there too, I swear the whole main floor smells like something died. My sons usually razz him about it pretty badly. "DUDE, put your shoes on the porch before my mom passes out!" He usually laughs about it.I doubt you can offend a man with a comment about stinky feet...they have heard it all before for the most part. I went to a tupperware party with co-workers one time, and one of the girls from my work had horrible foot odour. She was wearing rubbery shoes with no socks and when she took them off it was pretty disgusting. None of us told her, though...

Ummm.... well let's see... let me go get my book out. The one with the graph that keeps up with the percentage of men with stinky feet. I also have a page for stinky balls, and dirty pinky fingers.

Ok, some men work outside and wear leather boots that don't breath. They wear them all day long in the heat and the cold and their feet sweat. So before you make a judgement call on his smelly foundation, consider what he does for a living and consider how you would feel if the "boots" were on the other foot...

Listen, it's feet for crying out loud (you do not have to bring them to your face and kss them(heaven forbid) and some people it's a huge problem and, it's beyond their control and there are remedies out there for that, it has nothing to do with the person and hygiene some, have problems with their breath ... do not judge
Whether you want to date them or not is a personal choice... geez

I have a friend who wears leather boots/shoes. He has enough pairs that he won't wear the same pair twice in a row. He likes them to air out. Makes sense to me...

I believe it has to do with sweat. Up to 20, my feet would sweat and stink terribly. My socks would actually feel like they were starched after they dried. I broke both ankles at the same time and suffered some minor nerve damage, a side effect, my feet don't sweat. They haven't stunk in the 16 years since.

I wouldn't be able to deal with it but I'm OCD.

Bad hygiene is a major turn off if she isn't cleaning her feet what else is getting neglected?

No... and if they do, it grosses me out. Really. There are powders and techniques that can be used to help alleviate that issue. Frankly, I think it's something that your lover should do for you; keep himself clean. If he is unwilling to address it out of respect for you, to me that is indicative of selfishness. It is the same way that a woman should keep herself fresh for her man. While we all get BO sometimes, or even regularly, there is much to be said about keeping yourself attractive to your partner.

Yes, many men have smelly feet. I always wonder what goes on in their shoes. They wash their feet everyday like women but for some reason, it will smell once in a while. I don't get it.

Yes ! I was married to the woman , It wasn't long after that we were in divorce court.
The judge even brought up the fact in court. No more stinky feet or anything else for that matter in my house. That goes for dogs and cigarets too.

I have and I would again...soap and water was invented for a reason and it takes care of this issue rather quickly. Such a silly thing to dismiss a human for in my opinion. In most cases, it is because they worked hard that day...and that is a good thing.

I can't get my foot close enough to my nose to tell if I have foot odor...maybe they should add a category...foot odor: yes/no
