1. They Have Bad Breath: As if talking to someone with bad breath isn't bad enough, kissing someone with bad breath is unbearable. Bad breath may just be a case of their onion-ed up Subway sandwich, or it could be a more serious case like halitosis or another periodontal disease. This number one turnoff (for 26%) can also be a gentle reminder to you, no man wants to kiss a woman with bad breath!
2. They Appear Unkempt: Okay, so the Ryan Gosling messy hairdo is not what this means. This could mean yellow teeth, stained shirts, nose hair, unkempt feet and nails and not clean shaven or groomed. A woman wants a man who minds enough to take care of himself. This was the biggest turnoff for 26% of singles surveyed.
3. They Are Overweight: Being overweight doesn't reflect someone's personality or admirable attributes. But a man or woman definitely doesn't get turned on by someone who's overweight. Twenty-five percent of men and women surveyed thought this was the biggest turnoff.
4. They Smoke: For 22% smoking was an instant turnoff. Smoking also ties into bad breath as it could be a cause. In addition to the stigma associated with smoking, the actual act of smoking requires time away from a date to go smoke outside.
5. They Don't Follow the Golden Rule: There is nothing more unattractive than being rude or dismissive of those serving you coffee, lunch or dinner, driving you in a cab, and so on. Remember the Golden Rule when you're out with a new companion; trust us, your date will notice and react positively.
