Default List your biggest physical turn-offs in a man/woman

This isn't absolute or anything, and I hope it doesn't offend anybody. I just want to cut through the bs and find out what guys really want (or don't want).

Mine would include:

Too short
Too overweight
Too skinny (too skinny limbs, for instance, or ribs showing)
Noticeably aberrant torso/body (torso/leg) ratio - not a supermodel or a dwarf
Weird body shape (very wide bottom, very broad shoulders, too stout rotund)
Very small breasts
A very long or very round face
Too small or too big eyes (I'm talking slits or like googly eyes)
A flat nose
Weirdly proportioned facial features
Too thin or thick lips
Skin too blotchy
Extremely dark skin (I know this could come across as being racist. I'm just not used to it, I haven't tried a VERY dark girl but I'm not totally closed to the possibility of it).
Ears that clearly stick-out

I know this makes me sound very superficial but it's tongue and cheek. In reality I would overlook a lot of those features, but I'm wondering what your own opinions are regarding the opposite sex (or the same, if you're that way inclined).

Maybe if you focus on the things you do like about someone you wouldn't have to tote that cumbersome microscope around.

Physical features only... well the only definate dealbreaker would be someone who appears to not be active (overweight).

Bad teeth is the kicker for me

Most of your list sounds like the undeniable blessings of nature rather than something that a person has control over. Which makes this kind of a shallow and antisocial thread, really.

physical turn offs, probably nothing. but folks that "judge a book by it's cover" are a huge turn off to me. you fall in love with the person, not the body, and if you overlook someone because of how they look then you may well never truly fall in love.

To be honest, I have never even taken the time to think about what my 'turn offs' would be .... obviously there are men who I am attracted to as well as men who I am not attracted to, but I've never thought about it long enough to compile a list.

btw: My first husband was quite lean and constantly worried about his appearance; more so than most women. He was the one in the relationship asking how he looked in his jeans.
My husband now is a bit overweight, not slovenly so, but overweight. It's not that he doesn't care about his appearance, but he is not obsessed with how he looks, and I have to say .... it's a nice change.

I think as you get older the list diminishes. We all have our flaws; so the more aware we are of our own imperfections the more we can be open to others. That being said, if I had to pick a definite turn off, it wouldn't be physical, it's an attitude that is a definite turn off. The macho, male chauvinist attitude always makes me want to run in the opposite direction.
