How do I tell my date his breath is awful?Page 8 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
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.
