    Have you ever ended a relationship because of a pair of ugly feet?

    Some girlfriends and I were discussing the physical attributes in men we seek most when a few commented that they couldn't bring themselves to date men with "ugly" feet even if otherwise the men in question were attractive. One even admitted having broke off a relationship because she couldn't get over her new boyfriend's fat feet and knotty, hairy  toes. I found this surprising and am now curious if this reaction is common or unusual, and if anyone else has ended a relationship because of a pair of feet. Thanks!

    Hehe.  This is so funny.
    I personally do not have a foot fetish, but one of my friends decided not to date a guy because of his brown shoes.  She moved on to a guy who was as sweet as can be but had a funny walk, so after a few dates she could not tolerate the walk anymore and ended it.

    I have never ended a relationship because of a man's feet but I do appreciate cleanliness.  I think I've been lucky as the men I've dated have all had nice, clean feet.

    No, but I probably should have because he turned out to be a terrible person.

    Yes I did Beth. She was soon to be a "Deadhead" near the end, and absolutely refused to wear shoes anywhere! And I mean anywhere; like at the mall, out to dinner, movie shows, dress-up parties, you name it. Was quite embarrassing at times let me tell you. I liked her very much otherwise so it was too bad. She found a home with the "Deadhead" bunch though and i say good for her!

      Alastar, I think it turned out for the best for both of you. And I just don't see a guy as classy as you taking up the Dead tour caravan lifestyle!

    Wow, this is a good and interesting question.
    To answer it: No, I had never, but thank God I never met a man with an ugly feet before. Anyway, I guess 'ugly' means different things for everyone.
    On the other hand, to be frank, I don't think I'd end a relationship because of this. Not everyone is lucky to have THAT good genes smile. Plus, it is much worse when someone's feet are not ugly but stinky and dirty and their nails are almost longer than their toes... This would be a huge turn-off, yes. Yikes!

    I do wonder whether guys are put off by women having bunions. A lot of us have those from wearing high-heeled shoes - ironically, by trying to make ourselves look temporarily better we make ourselves look permanently worse!

    I have never been put off by a man's feet as long as they are clean. After all, they're covered up most of the time:)  I can remember my cousin turning down a date with a really nice, good-looking guy who was very keen on her. I asked her why and she said, "He was wearing white socks."  To be fair, she was only 17 at the time.

      Mazzy Bolero, that's kind of funny and sad, lol!
      When it comes to men's feet I dislike dirty and stinky ones. I will confess that a guy wearing socks (any color) with a pair of sandals does strike me as ridiculous.

    Haha, great question! Is it possible for guys to have attractive feet? Or women too, for that matter. Feet are creepy looking, like a deformed octopus or something. So no, I've never broken it off with a guy for having weird feet because, frankly, I think everyone does!

      Rebecca2904, yes I certainly think there are beautiful feet in the world, especially a baby's feet. Nothing cuter!

    If your only interest in dating someone is their looks, that's both sad and common.

    Find someone whose mind and interests complement your own, and they will become the best-looking person you know.

    How shallow to break it off because of ugly feet or the colour of someones shoes/socks etc  . Other issues like never washing or the person never wearing shoes I can understand .
    A person could be the most loving, kind ,truthful person and borrowed a pair of shoes that day and you miss out because they are the wrong colour ......

    ummmm... nope. but this does humor me as my boyfriend has really gross and misconstrued looking cave men feet. i've joked with him that they are a deal breaker... but alas, the kid is too cute to ditch him over the ugly feet

    I haven't ended a relationship due to smelly feet.

    Relationships are deeper than how a person looks. If you truly care about someone in that situation, get them help. Take them for a pedicure often or do it yourself.

    Funny how women don't seem to complain when a partner is so damn unattractive but has Millions in the bank. They would think more than thrice before ending the relationship. The ugly feet wouldn't seem that bad after all. .#JustSaying
