Are You Guilty of These? 17 Things Women Do That Might Be Driving Men Away

Similar to women, men also have specific preferences and things that either attract or repel them when it comes to dating. An internet survey recently asked, “What’s an instant turn-off in a woman?” Here are the top 17 responses.

Bad Hygiene

“Met a lady recently for dinner. She didn’t even shower. Could smell the sweat from across the table.”

“I hate the expectation that women should always be soft, made-up, perfectly hairless, and scented like vanilla cake, but nobody should stink.”

Unpleasant and Proud of It

“If you don’t like me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best,” except worst and best mean the same.”

“For some unknown reason, this is so common, and I can not understand why. “I am a walking red flag/I have many personalities/I am complicated, so good luck.” The list goes on, and they use that as a catchphrase to promote themselves, like this is nothing to be proud of…”

“If she treats them like trash, it is only a matter of time before you get the same treatment. Manners are free. Spread a little goodness, not toxicity.”

“As a former restaurant worker, I advise you, for the love of whatever you believe in, do NOT be rude to the servers.”

No Curiosity

“I’m just not compatible with women having no sense of curiosity.”

“For me, it’s the type of woman that would travel abroad, says to Africa or Asia, and only ever eats pizza/pasta/fries because “local food is weird” and then complains about why things aren’t like “home.” Like, what did you travel for?”

She Says Anything Close to “I Need a Man Who Can Handle Me”

“This is the one I always think of. I’m not looking to date a suitcase… or end up in a suitcase.”

“There’s so many copy and paste lines like that on Tinder and other “dating” apps that are an automatic swipe left for me.”

Rudeness

“If nothing else, at least be a nice person.”

“Facts, if a woman is rude, it’s an instant turn-off.”

Her Bio Reads “Make Me Laugh” or “Don’t Be Boring”

“The signs of someone who is incredibly unfunny and boring.”

“Yeah, a basic personality that requests a dancing monkey to entertain her.”

Bad Breath

“I went on a date with a girl I met on a dating app to a rugby match in the next city over. I drove her there, and the whole time we were in the car, I kept asking myself, “What crawled in her mouth and died?” I normally have breath mints in my car, but I used the last one that morning. I couldn’t think of any excuse to let her know her breath smelled bad without offending her.”

“But morning breath is ok. Anything past like 10 am is an instant turn-off.”

Obesity

“Right? Like if you can’t even take care of your health, it’s a major red flag.”

“I am not attracted to an obese person because I feel as if I have to be their parent instead of their partner.”

A Bad Attitude and Personality

“Or, to further elaborate, the “independent woman” attitude. She will manhandle you the entire relationship, and the second you push back, she’ll hit you with the “I can live on my own anyways. I don’t need you.”

“Some men have a thing for assertive women, and they stand out when guys are trying to find a match, but there’s a difference between being confident and arrogant. They both look the same initially, but no one wants a relationship with a rude man or woman.”

If She Smells Bad

“That’s disgusting. I will end the date if the girl has body odor. I don’t mind no perfume, but if you smell like my gym socks. No.”

“This is also an instant turn-off. I have a sensitive nose and can’t handle someone smelling bad.”

“I quit ten years ago… can’t stand the smell now.”

I’d want to date someone who doesn’t or is trying to quit like me because my life is changing. When I had no plans on stopping, I didn’t care if the other person had no plans to stop either.

Long Nails

“I often tend to ask them, “How do you wipe with those?”

“I’d say too long is when you can no longer type on a phone/keyboard or when the part that overhangs your finger is longer than the part on your finger.”

A Husband

“A response I can relate to without realizing how normalized being trashy has become.”

“Imagine if a cell phone carrier or insurance provider could get a legal contract similar to the language in a marriage contract.”

Doesn’t Like Animals

“I went on a date with a girl who said she had zero interest in ever meeting my dog. He’s a very well-trained, well-behaved boy who loves attention from everyone. The fact that she wasn’t even interested in ever meeting him was an immediate dealbreaker.”

“I don’t have the lifestyle for one, so a boyfriend with a dog would also be a no for me. Also, I hate owners who don’t train their dogs. Dating-wise, a well-trained dog may be negotiable. In contrast, a poorly trained dog would be a whopping massive no.”

Hating Men

“We aren’t all chauvinists, and masculinity does not equate to misogyny. I’ve broken it off with at least three women who can’t relinquish their outspoken misandrist opinions.”

“If you aren’t able to understand or consider that people are individual cases and that both genders are capable of the worst behaviors but that it isn’t absolute, then I have little interest in discussing much of anything else with you.”

Fake Eyelashes and Nails

“I don’t see what those women see in those fake eyelashes and nails. I can’t see the appeal. If anything, it downgrades how hot they are.”

“It’s like they took the saying “Dolling yourself up” to the extreme. Oh, men, and don’t get me started on fake hair.”
