Before we get into this post, let me just say that you should never change your lifestyle to adhere to a dude. Sure, love is great, hooking up is fun, but you still don’t want to change yourself or your personality for a guy. That being said, there are some things that you might not realize turn a guy off, especially when you’re trying to flirt. Again, turning a guy off isn’t the WORST thing in the world, but when it happens to someone you really like, it can kind of suck, and I don’t want you to go through that.
I recently came across a new study that asked guys what their top turn offs were when it came to dating. The answers were actually pretty surprising. Some of these things you can’t really help, but other things you might find yourself doing. Yes, you shouldn’t change yourself for a guy, but no, maybe you shouldn’t talk about your ex on your first date either. If you have been wondering why your crush might not be super into you, check out these little things that will always turn a guy off.
You Make Rude CommentsThis seems obvious, but 80 percent of guys surveyed said that girl who made rude comments were a total turn off. This makes sense! Even though TV shows and movies might make it seem like being rude is ~cool~, it's really not, and will just end up hurting you in the long run. Image Source: Freaks And Geeks
No ChemistryThis is one of those things that you can't really control, which sucks. Sometimes, you just don't have chemistry with people. It happens! And if it does happen, it can be a turn off for both of you. Don't try to force something that won't work. Image Source: Degrassi
You Are On Your Phone Too MuchOkay, I get that being on your phone is a huge crutch for some people. I am totally guilty of being on my phone 99 percent of the time. But, if you're always on your phone, you might be missing out on actual conversation with your crush. According to 78 percent of guys, this was a major turnoff. It's okay to put your phone down for a few minutes and get to know someone. Image Source: Pretty Little Liars
You Have Different Sexual PreferencesOkay, here's the deal: you shouldn't change your sexual preferences for someone else. If you don't want to do something in bed, DON'T do it! But sometimes, that can be a deal breaker for guys. It's super annoying and not your fault at all, bit it happens, according to 70 percent of guys surveyed. If a guy doesn't like you for your sexual preferences, that's his issue, not yours! Image Source: Gilmore Girls
You Talk About Your ExThis is tricky. On the one hand, you want to be open and honest. On the other hand...your new crush doesn't really want to hear about your old bae. According to 56 percent of men surveyed, talking about an ex is a major turn off. You don't want to rant about an ex to your potential bae! Save that for the second date. Image Source: The Office
You Have No ConfidenceI get that confidence is super hard for some people. It's super hard for me! But it can also be a turnoff, according to 43 percent of guys. You don't have to be the most confident person in the room, of course, but having a little confidence can go a long way. Image Source: New Girl
You Have A Bad Sense Of StyleThis is silly, but I guess having a good sense of style can make a good impression. According to 49 percent of guys surveyed, this is a major turn off for them. Of course, you don't need to be model-level stylish, but making a little effort when it comes to your outfit can definitely help you stand out. Image Source: 30 Rock
