    What about a man's appearance is an immediate turnoff?

    For me, it's bad teeth and/or long fingernails. Yuck!

    all of the stuff you mentioned   ewwwwwwwwww!

    plus  men who smile ALL THE TIME - sicko

    and men who never smile too!

    also men with sores - anywhere

    skin rashes - big turnoff

    also obesity - really fat guys - they might be my friend but, still its a big turnoff

    but also really skinny guys - all boney with those long sweaty fingers and they put their clammy hand on your back as you walk together!  ewwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  18. MayG profile image93
    MayGposted 8 years ago

    For me, the biggest turnoff are guys who look like they have spent more time in front of the mirror, or in the gym than I do.  Men should be men, and I'm sorry to be sexist, but to me that does not involve preening for hours in front of the mirror, or wearing skinny jeans that are tighter than mine.  Give me a daggy guy with a great smile and a sense of humour over a vain pretty boy any day.  That said, I wouldn't want a guy with some of the ailments you guys have already listed, Does anyone really know guys that disgusting?

  19. mega1 profile image77

    I don't know any guy who has ALL those things going wrong for him - but I have known plenty who have more than one of them!  And they are usually the guys who can't figure out why they're not getting any!  lol

    Phenomenal womanposted 8 years ago

    I don't know,a turn-off for me as far as appearance would be the way he's dressed,bad hygiene,a guy with no ass would definately turn me off.His teeth,and believe it or not,the way he moves his lips when he talks.I'm pretty complex,but I'm learning as I get older to not pay attention to outward appearance so much.I think it's better to focus on his personality and actions.I mean,if he farted or picked his nose on the first date,I'd run far away.But if he had a few flaws in his appearance,that can be corrected.But overall,a guy that lacks intelligence and doesn't conversate very well,would be my ultimate pet peeve.

    I seem to be seeing a lot of men who look pregnant due to drinking ridiculous amounts of beer. And yes, the bad teeth, bad breath and hairy noses and ears. A man who takes decent care of his body, shows himself that respect is a turn on to me.
