Sometimes it’s hard to really tell why a date goes awry or what reason someone doesn’t react favorably when they’re being asked out. The truth is there isn’t an exact science to the rules of attraction and nobody can truly predict what can make one person connect better with another. There are, however, many things we can predict when it comes to mood killers. Don’t get caught doing any of these things unless you want to spend a lot of time alone in the foreseeable future.
There is no bigger turn off than a man who doesn’t take care of himself. Let’s start from the top: If your hair is dirty, disheveled or improperly combed, you have done your part to turn off your partner; If your teeth aren’t brushed or your breath smells bad, the only female you’ll be whispering sweet nothings to is Siri; If you smell from anywhere else on your body, see the inside of a shower ASAP; If your fingernails are as manicured as a wild boar’s, it’s time to invest in a pair of clippers.
Want to turn off a woman in record time? Show up looking like you didn’t dress for the occasion. How you’re dressing wrong may vary, but the results are always the same: Going home alone. Here are some dressing turn-offs to consider: Definite no-nos include sweat pants, stained clothes, dated clothes, obnoxious clothes (we’re looking at you True Religion Jean guy), damaged clothes, odd clothes (what is up with that Michael Jackson leather jacket?) or a lack of clothes. Beyond the threads, there are more turn offs when it comes to your appearance. Please reconsider wearing novelty items that your eight-year-old nephew lent you. Also, if you still haven’t learned to match socks or shoes, maybe dating isn’t for you.
Most women are sapiosexuals, meaning they get turned on by a guy’s brain. What makes them dig the brain so much? It’s how you think, what you say and your overall attitude that really draws them in. So what do you need to keep in check? Simple, really, be polite, calm, funny and genuine. If you can’t be any of those things, at least try to lessen any instances of showing off your huge ego, hair-trigger rage, frugality, game playing or sex addiction and you should avoid most of the turn offs that could potentially come out of your mouth.
Avoid these three instant mood killers, and your date will be off to the right start. The rest is up to you!
