Sans.....or.....Dudette............There is little to no beating around the bush....."so to speak"........when handing a mint to another and asking "please"........They will know in record time......

OT......There are all kinds of medical reasons for a condition like this, or it can be an oral problem dealing with the teeth or tongue. I have even known some that have bad breath, and/or a foul smell emanating from their body because of medications taken, or food eaten, and all deserve to know about it, and to find out what can be done to help it.

Just my opinion.......

This might be hardcore but I wouldn't continue to date him, unless it was a new problem in an established relationship....

Dooly is right. The OP already implied that the BB was evident on more than one occasion. That means it's chronic. Keeping mints available for a partner like that is not really a solution. She should break up with him and encourage him to see a dentist/periodontist.

"not to be mean, but you have bad breath. Have you ever had it checked out by a dentist or your doctor. I like you and I am concerned. I would want someone to tell me if my breath was bad! Here have some gum!"

Ain't nobody getting near me with shitty breath! Because the first thing I'll say is,"No way are you kissing me with a mouth like that on you. You need to go see a dentist because you have a serious health related problem, man." I swear, I'll do it even if it hurts their feelings. I think if a person has enough self-respect then they should know that they have bad breath. And if they don't, then somebody needs to point it out to them.Who knows? You might just save a life. I've read where breath problems could lead to indicators of heart disease and such. So, its not rude, it could actually help that person. So, be a friend, first, say something. If they catch the problem fast enough, they could be around to thank you for it later.

As one poster mentioned, intestinal gas, etc can back up in the system & you really are smelling poopy breath. Who wants to kiss someone who smells like they've been chewing on a Baby Ruth?.

Caries (the bacteria that causes cavities) is contagious & I don't want my mouth infected. The only 2 cavities I ever got were from a couple of long term relationships were my partner had problems with cavities.

How do you handle ANY situation such as this, when one habit or hygiene issue keeps you from getting closer? Help!


Depends on how bad we are talking here. A little funky breath on a date that in other ways is good would probably get a 2nd chance. HORRIBLE breath would probably make me end the date early and nit go out again.

Any other hygiene issues would be a deal killer up front.

If we connect enough to date more than once, I think we should be comfortable enough with each other to bring it up in a tactful manner. You can bring up these issues without being insulting. If they chose to take the well intentioned comments the wrong way, that's their problem.

Tell him he needs a breath mint. Especially if you are even thinking about kissing that person. Some people are thick and don't take hints quickly. Dragon breath is nasty, yet so easy to cure.

I have encountered this also. I also know that certain types of "bad breath" are not situational ie) I just ate jalepeno garlic dip or I just woke up kitten breath.
When it is not "situational breath" that is when it gets complicated. Often times it is due to lack of flossing. I think most would be suprised how many men and woman don't floss. It can cause DRAGON BREATH. It is out of this world.
Unfortunately unless you can tell a perfect stranger that they need to floss or worse yet have a gastrointestional thingy going on then it's better to just move on to someone who has better oral hygiene.

I find it amusing how many people lie about the fact that they floss regularily. I am not a dentist however I can tell when someone has bright red (sometimes sore swollen looking gums) that they clearly don't floss. At least it is clear to me.

I'd rather kiss my dog than make out with that. Sorry but I say ditch him.

Totally agree with what Sincere said. Tell him.

I am a guy, and if my breath stunk I would want to be told. Don't do it in a mean way. You could tell him you really want to kiss him but he has that cold breath. And ask him to take care of it so you can.

But yeah def tell him.

bayoukitten- This is is a tough one, but I say go with honesty. Not blunt or cruel. Just sit him down and say I really don't want to hurt your feelings, I like you a lot, but your breath is not so great.
I have some tips too.
Bad breath can be caused by a dirty tongue, suggest he brush his tongue when he brush's his teeth.
Everyone has bacteria in their digestive tract and an imbalance can cause bad breath, Acidopholus (sp?) can help, you can purchase it anywhere you buy vitamins.

If somebody has bad breath for hygeine issues, Im out.

I wouldnt be rude, but that relationship would be dead before it was ever alive. Good Lord. Can you imagine being with someone with chronic bad breath or who wasnt thoughtful enough to at least freshen themselves up for a date?

Nope. No time for that!

Don't think I'd continue dating someone with a hygiene issue since other areas may be neglected as well. Most are consious of what they eat before or while on a date. Those that indulge I'd half jokingly remind there'll be no smooching if they eat that. I've also offered gum or mints & if they refuse tell them they must. They usually get the message.
