I must admit, women with beards are quite the turn off.
 
2012-07-14 02:03:37 AM
As a man the only thing on that list that gets me is bad breath. That and smoking, but they go hand in hand.

I think body art (if well done) makes a woman pretty damn sexy.
 
2012-07-14 02:24:33 AM
Any honest lists would include "fat" and "ugly".

Example: I'm pretty sure that most guys would much rather go for a really hot chick with some tattoos who smokes rather than the fat, ugly one who neither smokes nor has tattoos.

Weaver95: I think body art (if well done) makes a woman pretty damn sexy.


Well there's the problem.

FTFA:

The research was conducted by electronic cigarette retailer ecigarettedirect.co.uk who interviewed 500 people.

And there's why these lists are complete garbage.

Some 37 per cent of men questioned in a new poll about unattractive qualities in the opposite sex

You mean "ad masquerading as a poll".

Small pieces, maybe. I've seen some women over do it quite a bit.

Let me just get this out of the way:

No one cares about your tattoos, but feel free to post pics of them anyway so I can post them on other sites for the lolz.

Well, gee.

Also, they left off men and women who only exercise to get thin enough to land someone, and then immediately get fat. And women who start talking in bed about the 500 other guys they've screwed.
 
2012-07-14 02:31:36 AM
I wonder what they mean by beards. I have a goattee and get mostly positive reviews vs. clean shaven. Do they mean a full beard or do they mean any facial hair at all? I also don't think that the George Clooney in the picture in the article would have a tough time getting a date either.

At work there is this girl. We'll call her Mandy. Anyway, Mandy is really, really pretty. She's 21, has the body of a tight little lacrosse player, an attractive face, bright smile, charming personality, nice hips, small waist, etc.. Seriously this girl could have married a lawyer or professional athlete. but...

she's got those awful big farking holes in her ears. What's with the kids and these stupid gauged ears now? really guys, what is attractive about them? Why, just why? People are so desperate to show how unique they are they have to permanently deform their face forever? I just don't get it. Maybe I'm getting old

Living in your parent's basement just doesn't have the stigma it used to...

Mainly because nobody under 40 has any hope in hell of ever affording to move out of their parents' basement, but that's another story...

Until perhaps recently, facial hair, especially beards were a class differentiator. The lower on the socioeconomic scale you lived, the more likely you were to have facial hair. Beards are in right now so that isn't as true as it use to be but there still seems to be a bit of a casual relationship between the two.

Anyway, I grew out a beard about a year ago while on vacation and have kept it since. Can't say that it's driven women away... the twenty-five pounds of fat that I've put on the past year probably is a much larger deterrent. With a hat and sunglasses it does make me look like the creepy uncle that screws up Thanksgiving dinner.

If nothing else, keeping your facial hair neat and soft can signal that you're a person who pays attention to detail. Sure beats the look of razor burn.

Yup. Us young folk don't care, because we're in the same boat. Either living with parents or splitting a two bedroom apartment with 5 other people.

I know a shiatload of lawyers, about half of them male, and less than a third are happily married. I would never want to never inflict that on anyone. It's like marrying a cop without the cool uniform and car.

I shaved my goatee a couple Halloweens ago and I was like "Where did that extra chin come from???"

I met my fiance when I lived in my parents basement, I was getting stabilized and saving up after losing my job. The girl that I met didn't care that I had no money at the time and we meshed very well. Today is our 2 year anniversary. :)

/With facial hair I tend to keep a number 3. If I shave it off I look 16, if I have a bushy beard I look 30+, but with just a little hair people believe that I'm around 21 (I'm actually 26 but this seems to be the best option for me.)

Why does it have to be about "uniqueness?" Really, the "HURR DURR COMFORMING TO NONCONFORMITY!!!@!@!@lloi1l2" shiat is really getting old.

But make sure to let her know that, if she hadn't made personal decisions about her body with which you don't agree, she could have had your hot ass.

Sid_6.7: And there's why these lists are complete garbage.

In other words, the result of the poll is that 67 percent of men like tattoos. Boners are Boolean variables. It's hot or it's not.

"21 with a tight body" is okay, though? Ugh... creepy old guys.

Although, I do agree with the ear thing, it looks hideous. It resembles a disease or some other health defect.

I like beards on men as long as they don't make the guys look like Civil War reenactors. I also like bald men. One extreme or the other.

Beards on women? Not so much.

And I agree with whoever said this was really an ad masquerading as research. The electronic cigarette company had to get the point in there that both sexes dislike smoking.

Which, in turn, it's also a relatively recent effect since having a beard was standard procedure even until the 19th century / early 20th.

Why wouldn't it be? Unless it's chronic, bad breath is gone with a good brushing, tattoos are permanent.

I have 1, 4 and 5. So far, they have attracted more than turned away women. Though, my beard is short and most of my tats are hidden by clothing.
 
2012-07-14 03:16:00 AM
I'd never have thought that bitten nails were a huge turn-off for most men, because it never occurred to me that men look at fingernails. I wonder which would bother a guy more - chewed-down nails or huge acrylic talons.

/ Bit my nails until I was in my 30s, stopped (interestingly enough) when I lost weight.

I think passivity is a problem when dealing with guys on a sexual level.

Look, I don't get freaked out easily, an don't even get creeped out that guys call constantly me "cute" and that I remind them of their little sister.
But to be totally honest here, the last time I ever had sex with a guy , we were in his parent's bedroom, and for some bizarre reason, he thought it would be erotic to pull his mother's sex toy out of the dresser drawer, and tie me up. That was far too creepy for my comfort level, and even though I let him do it, I hated myself for letting him use me. I let him know afterward that we were through, and he had the balls ask why.
I've only let girls take me to bed since, and couldn't be happier to be done with guys forever.

It didn't help that he tried showing me his family photo albums after, and I saw to my horror that was the spitting image of his dad at 18, but with a longer penis.

You're dead on with that. Too many men are chickenshiats that think they have to be "nice guys" and not get into the broad's panties early. Bullshiat. They want to meet a guy who's not a limp wrist doughboy that's afraid to make a move.

I took my wife out on our first date to go dancing. She'd never listened to country music before. Naturally I take her out to a saloon and teach her how to swing dance. After hours of dancing and having a hell of a good time we went out at 2am to get ice cream sundaes. As we went back to my POS car, I kissed her. We wound up having wild freaky sex about an hour later. 13 months later we were married.

Guys, the broads want to get laid as much as you do. Indulge them without being obnoxious about it.

MorePeasPlease: I let him know afterward that we were through, and he had the balls ask why.


ZOMG! I didn't communicate with someone at all and yet they had no idea what I was thinking so they mistook my silent complicity for the defiant rebellion it really was!

The good news is I think even being able to touch mom's sex toy is pretty much a 10 on the creepy scale. Not quite 11, but instant max. Tying up people can be erotic done right.

But you have to realize that you're insane for thinking it's not obvious he should ask why you were breaking up. You are only the center of your own little world, as are we all. To get information from one microcosm to the other: YOU HAVE TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND MAKE WORDS COME OUT. This isn't just sex, it's all facets of life. What's wrong with the world? Is it bad things or bad people? Not ultimately. It's people who keep their mouths closed when they should be talking.

So my challenge to you, indeed all of you reading this post, is to go out there tomorrow with your big boy and big girl pants on and at least once you communicate with someone. Make an authentic connection and let them know what you are feeling and let them do the same to you.

No more passive aggressive bullshiat for you. You're moving out of that backwater and tomorrow is your first day in your new penthouse in Communication City.

That's not going to happen. This is both of our 2nd time being married. You see, we figured it out. We're both farked up. We know it, we revel in it, we dance through life loving it. Nobody else is ever going to be the perfect mix of farked up as Mrs. Smurf and I are. That and we're both sex crazy and a perfect match of perversions.

Anyway, I've gotten laid on nearly every first date I've had. There's something to be said about making sure you're dating women that aren't prudes. Not that I've had many 2nd dates but that's because the broads were crazier than I am.

I've seen it ruined though.
When I want to see a beautiful naked girl, that's what I want to see.
Not some deep philosophical statement, not some amateurish (at best) "art" , and sure as hell not, "PROPERTY OF".
The last thing I need right now are royalty payments to the Hells Angels.

I'm really glad you love your kids, your mother, your dead cat, and, your grandfather, but staring at a badly drawn picture of them during sex, does not exactly heighten the experience.
