dirty apperance, uncombed hair, bad body smell, green and black teeth or missing most or all of teeth.
If he/she passes on to the actual date; disrespectful behavior as in treating someone me or anyone else bad. nose picking, butt picking, farting or burping at the table without excusing themselves. Keeping the topic on sex instead of trying to have an intellegent conversation. There is more.. The list can go on.. but there are some things that can be over looked to try and get to know the person

turn offs - when you meet someone for the first time and within minutes they are overly clingy and appear desperate

people who "brag" about how much money they have; evasive answers, selective memory. THAT'S what turns me off.

Another turn-off^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Guys who don't say let's not talk about

Oh believe me you-we women would rather hear about
It's a turn off when you think you know what we are

- Lack of motivation in life in general and in dating
- Bad hygiene, poor appearance
- B.O. or bad breath (but thankfully never been on a date with one who has)
- No manners ie. Does not say thank you if you open a door
- Lack of common interests
- Cold personality
- Does not keep fit
- Negativity (Don't, whatever you do, start talking about how you can't get along with your family, co-workers, etc.)
- Sometimes I'm simply not attracted to the person

For me one other HUGE turn off that I don't think I mentioned elsewhere is a lady that likes, hangs around or has snakes. I mean I have tried before to like and get used to people like that and it just doesn't work, I hate snakes from my heart, no matter how nice the lady is and how beautiful she is and how much she may like me, I still would not date her if she likes or hangs around or owns snakes. If I would date her , (I know this may sound harsh to the snake likers), I would ask that she kill off all her snakes or allow me to do it, before I even step foot on her property and consider dating her....or she can sell her snakes or get rid of them I think would be a nicer thing to do instead of killing. For I am absolutely terrified of snakes, and was terrified of them ever since I was a little kiddy and I don't think that will change. I hate them!! ANY (or almost any) other animal would be fine, great or ok by me, as I love animals, but the snakes I just can't stand.
