Open thread: What's your biggest turn-off?

Is it bad breath? Talking about their ex? We need to know.


A list of things that just kill the mood and put a stop to any romantic daydreaming. That’s right: the instant turn-offs.

For some people, it’s the old reliable, bad breath – caused either by a mouthful of cheese and onion crisps or maybe one too many cigarettes at the end of the night.

Or maybe it’s that guy who talks non-stop about his ex all night?

Maybe it’s being rude to a waiter while you’re on the first date?

Perhaps you noticed they have dirty fingernails? The mucky pup.

Let us know your most biggest turn-offs or funniest memories in the comments – no shame here, we’ve all got them…
