Default What is your biggest turn off in a man/woman?

Imagine: You see this amazing girl on the beach with a white bikini on, showing off her amazing rack and her perfect stomach. Her long brown hair blows back in the wind as she walks toward you. Suprised, you flutter a little and say hello. She replies hello back, only for you to hear a voice that is 10x as deep as yours.

While this won't happen to most people, I thought it would be an interesting topic to see what is a common turn off for men / women when they seek their significant other.

Mine include: Smoking, loudness in restaurants (esp. if they're nice), bad English, extremely clingy, easy, fake, and no goals

What are some of your major turnoffs? It should be interesting to see which are (and aren't) the most common.

Sorry if there is a thread like this already

Big ego/bragging; piercings (other than ears) and scary tats (snakes, skulls, swastikas, etc.); clothing with beer, drug, or monster truck ads on them.

That could actually be me! I got 50+ women's swimsuits too! TYR, Speedo, Miraclesuit, La Blanca, etc...

Turn off on a woman - she's pretty but a GOLD DIGGER! - Can't afford that!

I would say my biggest turn off in women is the trait of failing to see me as utterly charming. If a woman has that trait though, I can overlook a lot of things -- a few extra pounds, bad hygiene, rotten teeth, crack addiction (so long as she's working on it), etc.

Besides the obvious (drug user, violent, etc), my biggest turn-offs in a guy are arrogance and lack of intellect.

If we're talking physical, then besides the obvious (really fat/bony skinny/crazy buff), short, chunky legs are a big turn-off.

Biggest turnoffs:

1. Smoker
2. Fat/obese and not doing anything about it.
3. Lots of tattoos - the cheap random kind.
4. Flat butt
6. Hairy stomach - stray strands of black hair around bellybutton
7. Bad breath
8. Negative attitude (i.e., she's not a smiler, or is not bubbly)
9. Inhibited or not aggressive/adventurous sexually.
10. She has no sense of adventure.

Clinginess / Lack of Independence. I am a very independent person and my friends, family, and hobbies are very important to me. Meaning, I make time for them. Meaning, I don't intend to spend every waking moment with the person I'm dating.

I like a woman who is similar. Where we have an awesome time together, but don't spend all our time together.

Gag. I never was, never will be and never want to be 'bubbly'.

Thank you.

Bubbly people seem like they are disconnected from reality.
