Particularly when it comes to the opposite sex? Here are a few of mine.


1. Too much makeup. To be honest, I used to be completely turned off by makeup altogether. But now I feel differently. I think a little makeup is okay because it shows that a woman cares about her appearance. And that's an attractive trait to me. But I still think some women overdo it.


2. Bad temper. From my experience, few things are worse in life than dealing with a woman that's pissed off at you.


3. Tattoos and piercings. Nothing against women that have either or both. It's their body and they should be able to do whatever they want with it. I just don't find either attractive personally.


Your turn. Have at it. :p

see patroniser thread lol.
otherwise, I get along with most men as long as they dont try and grab me.

In terms of attraction or lust, what you do is just let them know that if they really want to do that, they have to clear it with God first.

yea men that wear makeup are a bit strange. Bad temper is terrible, and tattoos arent that great either, especially if its a gang or their former girlfriend who is now dead. Men that have piercings well they can do what they like but Im not going to match them hole for hole.

Entitlement: a person who feels deserving of privileges but is devoid of gratitude.

Tattoos - I actually think tats are great, but on women they strike me as masculine. And I'm into women, not men.
Short hair - There are occasional exceptions, but its not common.
Piercings - The usual ears are fine, even a couple. But anywhere else I'm not a fan.
Smoker- I hate cigarettes and smoke. And the stress of the potential health impacts on someone you care about.
Drinking - I am a non-drinker. I don't care to be around others that are drinking.
Foul mouth - A little here and there doesn't bother me, but it doesn't take much to become excessive.
Coffee drinker- This is the one I'd be most lenient with, but it's not ideal. I hate coffee. I also find the "I need coffee to function" shtick to be annoying.
Musical tastes - I have a wide spectrum of musical tastes and many are less than popular. Someone limited in theirs, or that judged mine, would be a challenge. Not that one needs to share all if mine, but be accepting. And there needs to be some common ground.

Females without piercings and tattoos is a turn off. I grew up looking at tattoos (my mother was a tattoo artist at one point so I grew reading tattoo books and magazines) I've always enjoyed art and design. I'm not fond of short tempers (however I have developed a temper of my own the past few years so I'm more lenient of that now)

I noticed tattoos on women seems to be common turn off. First thing that came to mind is what a comedian said once. “Women need to think long term about where they get their tattoos. That might be a sexy unicorn on your chest at 20. However, you don’t want your grandkids saying, ‘Grandma, why did you get a tattoo of a giraffe?’”

I’m pretty sure all of my 22 yr old daughter’s friends have gotten them. It’s no longer, Should I get one?” It’s just, “What am I getting?” I just share the story above to help them avoid future embarrassment. Even a good tattoo artist can’t be held responsible for his work come motherhood.

Hmmm...
Cocky
Arrogant
Self absorbed
Not a doer of the Word. (Uses christianity like an accessory to meet a specific type of lady, but has no real relationship with Jesus)
Spouts off lame pick up lines to try to impress
Defensive when being questioned and not willing to apologize when wrong
Dishonest
Oh, and poor hygiene.
I find it easier to look past physical things if their character is healthy. :)
