12 Sure Ways to Turn a Woman Off

12 Sure Ways to Turn a Woman Off

Dating can be tricky, and sometimes you can ruin the romance without even knowing it. If you have trouble keeping women interested, maybe it's because you're making one of these 12 common mistakes.

Smell bad.

Hygiene matters. In fact, it matters a lot. Showing up to a date smelling terrible is not going to impress anyone.

Take a shower, and use deodorant. Scent is very sexy to some women. If you can find a cologne or body wash that she particularly likes, you'll probably be rewarded for it.

Laugh at racist or otherwise bigoted jokes.

Anytime you laugh at a classless and offensive joke, you are announcing that you're a jerk. Avoid looking bad in the eyes of your date by not responding to jokes like these. In fact, you'll earn points with most women if you let the person who told the joke know that you don't think it's funny.

Don't ask questions about her life.

The easiest way to turn a women completely off is to send that message that what she cares about doesn't matter to you.

Each time you tell her something about yourself, try following it up with a question for her. Then actually listen to her answers. That in itself will make you stand out from the majority of men.

Have dirty nails.

Look at your hands and ask yourself if a woman would want you to touch her.

Be rude to waiters.

The worst kind of jerk is someone who is rude to people serving him. Treat waiters and other service people with respect and consideration. Your date will notice.

Obsess over one topic that clearly doesn't interest her.

Unless you met your date on a video gaming website, she probably doesn't want to hear the details of your latest electronic victory.

It's okay to have a hobby, and it's great to be passionate about something. But if her eyes glaze over, move on to another topic.

Interrupt her.

Women often notice that guys aren't so much listening as they are deciding what they are going to say next. Some men take that a step further and actually blurt something out while the woman is still talking.

That is rude, and it is not likely to get you another date.

Complain about your ex.

No matter how awful your ex was and no matter how many terrible things she did to you, bad-mouthing her isn't attractive.

You'll have time to tell your sad story little by little as you get closer to the other person. Spewing your anger and hatred just makes people uncomfortable.

Have terrible table manners.

Didn't your mother teach you basic table manners? Chew with your mouth closed, put your napkin on your lap and eat quietly.

Be cheap.

There is nothing wrong with being frugal. Just keep it in check while you're dating. You don't have to take your date to the most expensive restaurant in town, but do make her feel comfortable ordering anything she wants from the menu. Most women will be polite and not order the lobster.

Please don't use coupons until you know each other much better.

Be gassy.

People's bodies do weird things, especially when they are nervous. Most women aren't going to fault you for an accidental burp after eating. However, letting your gas go crazy is a different story.

Please reign it in, even if it means you have to make different food choices.

Make her choose everything.

An indecisive guy is a pet peeve for many women. She knows that when you constantly ask her to choose an activity, restaurant, time or location, you just want to make sure she is getting what she wants. But it can come off as sounding like you can't handle making a decision.

You don't have to be a control freak. Just ask her if she'd like Chinese food, for example, and then suggest a restaurant.

Every woman is different, and you might find someone who doesn't mind one or more of these characteristics. In general, however, following these 12 rules will immediately turn most women off. Avoid them when you can, and your dating life is likely to be much more satisfying.

Let her know how prejudice you are.

Those are very large assumptions regarding the quality and quantity and AGE of education.
The smell one is funny because of the whole Pheromone attraction thing.
It isn't like every woman and man have not watched sweaty people shake their booties.
Everyone is prejudice against something so a pass on that.
Everyone is Narcisistic in some sense.

Basically there is no way to make absolutely everyone happy and people either like you or they don't
Eight billion of us, just move on. Go to India, Africa, China, so on. Until someone finally "gets" you.
We want our cake and we want it here and now and we don't really want to work for it because we all think as first worlds we are entitled to all the crap.

Before enjoying Rick and Morty maybe Elliot of Mr. Robot fame could give us all a nice kick in the butt.

"Elliot : Oh, I don't know. Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it's that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit? The world itself's just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our running commentary of bullshit, masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I'm not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we wanna be sedated. Because it's painful not to pretend, because we're cowards. f*ck society."

The wisdom of Rick and Morty. I thought I would stick to a thematic overly intelligent adult cartoon.

“Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you, but what people call love is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science.” — Rick

"When two people create a life together, they set aside their previous lives as individuals." "Gimme a break! We're not heroes for having unprotected sex on prom night."

"Your love’s value is defined by scarcity. You are highly trained to seek it, and you have no idea how to maintain it. If you have bothered to master love, you would have known it is as abundant as water. You know what isn’t? Water, that s*** runs out.”

“Have fun with empowerment. It seems to make everyone that gets it really happy.” — Rick

“Don’t deify the people who leave you.” — Beth

“Yeah, sure, I mean, if you spend all day shuffling words around, you can make anything sound bad, Morty.” — Rick

I realize now I’m attracted to you for the same reason I can’t be with you; you can’t change. And I have no problem with that, but it clearly means I have a problem with myself.” — Unity
