Default Smoking: 100% dealbreaker!

I thought about this because there is a young lady that works at the bakery in my neighborhood. She's nice looking and "appears" to be pleasant.

Every time I see her taking what seems to be her work break she's smoking. I saw her yesterday and she was "sucking & puffing" away.

I could not help but think----"she'd be alright if she did not smoke".



Is smoking a absolute dealbreaker for you?

Yes, absolutely.

Don't get me started on the nastiness of how all your clothes will stink when you are with this person, or how nauseating it can be to kiss a smoker - but worse than that, you are potentially condemning yourself to watching the person you love slowly kill themselves with lung cancer, COPD, asthma, heart attack etc.

Not to mention, they'll be less physically fit and as you age together won't be able to do the things you do anymore that require exertion. Oh, and when you're 50 and she's 50, she'll look at least 10 years older from depriving her skin and hair from much needed oxygen over the years.

Yes it is a 100% dealbreaker for me. It is a complete and utter turn off.

I was standing in line at a small carryout and the young lady was buying a pack a "squares"........her voice was raspy sounding. I thought, I'll bet that comes from her smoking. She looked to be under 30y/o.

I just could not "get into" a gal with a raspy voice. Not appealing at all.

Yes, since it triggers my asthma. No I don't smoke, but any second hand smoke or even the smell of it will trigger it.

No. If I felt attraction towards a woman and liked her personality I wouldn't care if she smoked or not. I don't smoke BTW.

So then that means that you wouldn't care about her health and the fact that her smoking will most likely kill her?
