Supposing there were two identical women(identical in almost all aspects of their personalities), except that one smokes and the other doesn't, who will you like better and why? Please give honest answers, regardless of whether you are also a smoker or non-smoker.
Non-smoker. Male or female, romantic or platonic. I'm allergic to smoke so it's hard to be around someone that smokes. All other things being equal I'd have to stick with the non-smoker. A smoker would have to be something extra to make up for not being able to breathe around them.
Well I'm a girl, so if it were two identical men, I would prefer the non-smoker.
If it makes a difference on who you choose to associate with, what's that make you?
If you choose non-smoker associates over smokers, perhaps that would tell you value health that much. But it doesn't necessarily speak about hate smokers. I smoke, and I have friends who smoke. I just want to hear opinions. If i see that more people like non-smokers, I might as well try quitting to see for myself and experience the advantages.
concerned about your health and the way your car, house and clothes smell?
If I had the choice, nonsmoker. But I'm a girl. If I already HAVE friends who smoke, or we're acquaintances at work, smoking won't make me like you less... however...
If I'm JUST meeting a guy for the first time, being a nonsmoker, gives him a point, while if he smokes, he loses two points.
Well, I'm from a family of smokers, but I don't smoke myself. I always said I would never marry a smoker, mainly because I've watched it kill the people I love. But, unbeknownst to me at the time, I fell inlove with a smoker. He struggled with the habit for a few years and has since, I'm happy to say, kicked the habit.
So, I guess you could say I would have gone for the nonsmoker, but I got the smoker--who has since reformed.
I will think ill of the smoker unless they are old enough to have become addicted before we knew how dangerous smoking is. When I see an older person smoking, I feel sorry for them. When I see a young person, I think they are a fool.
Smoking is a disgusting, smelly habit. But wouldn't you know, my husband is a smoker.
He made sure to show me he was when we met, but I didn't care since he is such as amazing person.
So quit if you want, but it won't change who you are or even really how people see you.
I think any non-smoker such as myself would say the same thing. For most men, smoking is a turn-off. I have known some women who smoke on rare occasion, which isn't too bad. I couldn't be with a women who smokes a pack a day, smoking has so many negative health implications and I am all about promoting health.

What percentage of hubbers are smokers? The percentage seems quite high, though I am NOT a smoker. Writers are historically known to be smokers, e.g. Mark Twain whom I believe was a heavy smoker.
