I'm probably going to sound racist here, but I used to find very broad noses a bit of a turn off. Same with very small eyes. It's not something I can really help, to be honest. At the same time I could be uber-critcal of my own facial features (they're not too bad but I'm not entirely happy with them).

I guess some of the turn offs:

- too broad, flat nose
- too long nose
- too small eyes
- too thin or thick lips
- a face that is very long or broad
- a very masculine jaw, although it's not too biggie
- having a forehead that is too large

I'm not so hung up on hair/eye colour...I'm not really super picky, but if people are being honest, these things will factor.

Eyes. I really like eyes.

I am not into double chins or turkey neck/jowls. I guess I like a thin face.

The Royal Family/British royalty combination of long high-bridged nose and weak chin. An unbalanced profile is not attractive. I've known a few people who had that combo corrected and the result was good, though it would be weird knowing you have a silicone pad, or whatever it is, sitting inside your chin.

On Mediterranean faces that have some "strength," the noses aren't usually a problem. Most men can carry them and so can a few women. I saw a French woman on an Air France flight sitting across from me on a Paris to Italy flight and she had a thin, but high-bridged nose and it did not work against her attractiveness.

Some long faces can be interesting, and sometimes they are not (Sarah Jessica Parker).

I can't say that any certain facial feature really turns me off. Although I love a beautiful set of eyes.

Absolutely! I'm very specific.

Like every other single thing (and hasn't this been beaten to death already??) everyone has their own unique preferences. Which is exactly as it should be.

I don't like clipper #3 or #4 lesbian like short hair on a woman. Jamie Lee Curtis style cuts. She looked much better back in the Halloween days. I'm also not a fan of red heads. Brunettes are my favorite with blonds #2. Red heads have very pale skin usually and freckles galore. It's not my thing, I don't know why. It just doesn't do anything for me. I'm also not of fan of large glassy/glazed over eyes. They give me the creeps. That's a crazy woman behind those eyes. Big ears that stick way out and, or have, elf like pointy tips are another. I don't like Mr. Ed big horse gums either. The ones where their gums are bigger than the teeth. That's about it.

I tend to go for "cute" over other looks. I am not into pale, but that is about it that is picky. Ugly features can look fine in the right combo. It is probably fair to say I don't really like pointy chins or big noses, but it isn't 100%.

You're crazy, she was still hot even with the short butch hair
