I'd take thick eyebrows over overplucked eyebrows, which look horrible and often go with a fake look.

Also, melting jawline disgusts me, and I've seen it too often in women who are too young for it.
I'll have to google that...don't know what that is.

Nothing really except for a slack jawed expression...

Anything pierced besides their ears.

Round, heart shaped face on a man. My maternal grandmother, my father and I all have this face shape - Christina Ricci like. Poor dad. It is too feminine.

Overly groomed eyebrows on a guy. Get rid of unibrow but leave the rest alone.

Big pillowy lips. No! I like thinner lipped men. More masculine.

Less favorite; missing teeth (I actually don't mind slightly crooked teeth) or those bizarrely blindingly white teeth, fake tans (especially paired with the prior), weak chin, one eyebrow but hypocritically I hate too much manscaping, noticeable nose or ear hair, face tattoos and I think that is it.

Having your teeth enter the room before you do is definitely overdone.

ikb, you summed things up nicely:

Yes, not a uni-brow, but I do like prominent eyebrows (I don't know what it is, but the vast majority of men I find facially attractive have them) and a strong jaw. Lean, masculine bone structure, overall. And teeth are very important. They don't have to be perfect, but reasonably straight and white. And definitely clean. Discolored teeth tells me that he has poor oral hygiene and doesn't care. Not going near that. Oh, and lips that aren't too big or too thin (gotta have something there to kiss).

But both you and katie are right about the "bizarrely blindingly white teeth," though (love that description). I know you know this, but just so we don't annoy some of the men on the thread, we should mention that some women are guilty of over-whitening their teeth, too. Teeth should have a natural whiteness to them.

double chin is the deal breaker for me.

I don't care about a big belly and a flat butt. But double chins deform the whole face and gross me out.

Bad teeth is the number one turnoff to me - hands down. Honestly - it's not that difficult to KEEP YOUR TEETH CLEAN. Sheeze!

I'm not a big fan of thin lips or weak chins either. But those are not really a CHOICE that the other person made, so I don't hold it against them - I'm sure they could point out one or more things on my face that they don't care for! But a unibrow falls under the first category, too -the "do something about that" category. Same with facial tattoos - POOR CHOICE in my opinion.

I HATE those huge holes in peoples' ear lobes. GAK!

Eyes too close together.

Tiny mouth (on a man)

I don't like when you can see the whites all around a persons eyes. This is usually a sign of crazy. Most normal eyes you can only see the whites on the sides, but crazy people you can see it on the top and bottom.
