I've had to deal with this one and I thought I'd have a heart attack before I actually managed to get the words out. It took me weeks, but I finally said "had garlic for lunch, huh?" A couple days later when he came over he had toothpaste, a toothbrush and a big a$$ bottle of Citrus Listerine with him.

Sometimes, it's not really bad breath as much as not drinking much/enough. Drinking helps clear the mouth somewhat and odors don't seem to linger as much. He didn't have bad breath, he had the "dry mouth" thing going. I just keep offering him tea eighty eleven times a day, lol.

Fart in a can... damn!

Classic!!!

But I myself am rather partial to the phrase "freshly brewed ass"...

It conveys so much, yes?

Well thanks for telling everyone that hun! Yes scinoks has said that to my face, and ive said the same to him lol. The best thing to do is be totally honest. If he's really into you, he'll get over it.

I don't know how a guy can go out with a girl if his breath stinks. Someone needs to tell him. Anyone who cares about him should tell him.

Don't people brush anymore? I hear lots of people complain about this.

I just wanted to know how to politely suggest that my date's breath is equivalent to that of my dog's.


Just offer him a breath mint made for a pooch. :)

I don't...I just get out of there quickly.

There is a difference between a man who just ate onions and a man who has never flossed in his life and has gingivitis.

Onions I can deal with. The other - NO WAY! What else doesn't he clean properly?

LOL! I went to Great America with a guy a couple years ago (just a friend)...of course you have to stand in line for hours at a time holding conversation to keep from being bored, and OH MY BEJEZUS did his breath ever smell like an A-hole! I don't understand how he couldn't notice me dry heave a little bit every time he spoke. I made it simple and just "looked around at the scenery" whenever he talked from then on! Thank God I didn't have to kiss him!

u asked how? i hv solution...(altho its not so polite as u wanted to)

-offer him mint chewing gum
-sit far from him
-order mint drink for him
-order mint cake for him
-or give him listerine spray/mouth wash as a gift or a NEW FRIENDSHIP!
-last choice but not totally suggestable(yeah i know am suggesting it to U!), tell him 'I CANT STAND UR BAD BREATH.'if he upset later, let him be..he'll feel ashamed n then say sorry for everything.

If you wretch on him he might take the hint. I would so much rather someone said something or handed me a stick of gum than to miss out on some good kisses.

Invite him over dinner Make pasta with pesto (lots of garlic) and caesar salad (again, more garlic) and ummmm...garlic bread. Then you'll both stink and it won't matter anymore! Plus, no excuses for not taking the breathmint/gum when offered.

You're welcome!

People need to think for theirselves:
I love love LOVE garlic, onions etc. So I'm aware my breath matches the smell of the local sewage plant. Brush your teeth after you eat and better yet, ALSO brushing your tongue helps immensley as it removes the oils that deposit there while you chew/eat.
I chew gum and carry a toothbrush, mints and chapstick for afterwards, religiously since I know I probably reek or will reek after I eat.
I tell people I ate taco bell for lunch, sorry. Lemme know if it gets too bad or I will just take that gas mask as a hint! and go on with things.

Next time your together start acting like your looking for something, push him to the side and peek around him and when he asks "What are u looking for" you can reply "That bucket of shit you ate"

You could always do what I do at work if I know I'm going into something nasty...

Rub a little Vick's under your nose and when he asks if you're sick, say "Well, kinda. I'm using it to ward off someone's vampire breath before I do get sick..."

Just tell them!!!! Plus that you are worried it could be an internal thing, from the gut, or oral, bacteria that gets under the root of the tooth, into the gums and causes an infection that can eventually kill. I'm serious. I finally got the nerve to tell my Dentist and he'd actually called to thank me and explained all the above I told you all, that he'd learned.
To all conserned, morning breath is just a natuaral thing. Get up and brush your teeth. If it's that way all the time, then there is a physical problem that needs a Doctor or a Dentist.
I don't remember a time other then the morning, my late Husbands kiss wasn't good.
Plus I know the epidemic of bad breath is so much worse because of the lack of insurance paying for dental visits.
I'm a (stupid) smoker. That's a given for bad breath to a non smoker. But when I can taste the yuck, I steer them to medical advice.
If you do like the person, don't be a like the corinel (cernal) with Elvis. My age group knows this. You want them to be you mate for life. So just be honest........ You may save their lifes............ (yes, my spelling sucks, forgive me).

Tell him, his breath: "Smell's like a Camel just took a shit in his mouth".
Make a joke out of it that way. there is no easy way to tell them, but they have to know it anyways, I would think. Smile....

Then, if he does not clean up his act? Then, tell him that you will be looking for a guy that has better health habit's. Recommand the "yellow pages" to go see a Dentist and get his "gum's" treated so that he does not have Gervitus (sp) or some other gum disease and cavaties too...

Then, go see a "Medical Doctor" for his "Digestion problem's" and see if that does not solve the problem? One of these are most likely the problem, his diet or his bad dental care or medical problems or all of the above. And, who would want to "Kiss" that...Smile! Good Luck...
Then applaude him for taking care of business, so that you can get down to business...Ha ha

This is simple....GIVE HIM A TIN OF ALTOID MINTS...PEPPERMINT......NOT AND I SAY NOT!!!!!! the cinnamon ones and tell him that you absolutely ADORE a man that can use these "curiously strong" mints in exciting and loving ways......it has always been something you admired in a man.If he doesn't catch on...then he is one stupid dude and you don't want him around anyway.The sensation of this particular mint( I have been told) is something between heaven and the best damned porn flick you ever saw!!!!If you are not at the stage yet where you would like to just reach down his pants and do what comes natural....in a dark corner somewhere...like a parking gagrage...then this tid bit is for the vault hon.Your decision.

I still don't get how people don't realize their breath stinks. I know that when I have a bad taste in my mouth, it's time to brush. These people must have weak taste buds. I mean, if your own mouth tastes funky, you're breath's gonna be gettin' down too.

You never tell a date their breath stinks. You keep it to yourself and make a note of it if you go out again. You haven't known each other long enough to discuss such a topic, if you knew someone 10 years you could say it in a second, but never on a first date. Never on a third or fourth date either, if it bothers you, and you think it is a chronic condition, don't date them, but then again it may be just a one time thing. First dates are light and friendly and fun, never discuss personal hygiene on a date unless you are in a serious relationship.
