20 Things that automatically turn men off

Men, can you relate?

Looks are not everything, especially in the era that we live in. There are some universal turn-offs that are hard-wired into the psyche of 21st-century men.

We have hunt down the most common turn-offs for our women readership:

1. Back-stabbing and Gossiping around

It is an instant turn-off to find out that a woman bad-mouths people behind their back and is always gossiping around about the things that do not concern her.

2. Not in touch with current affairs

Men like to talk about things that are happening in the world. So even if a woman is as attractive as Victoria’s Secret model, he will not be attracted to her if he cannot talk to her about current affairs or at least the hot topics going on in the world.

3. Bad Hygiene and Body Odor

This one is on top of every man’s list. It is an instant turn-off for men even if you are extremely attractive but do not take care of your hygiene. In 2016, there is no excuse for bad hygiene and bad body odor with countless over-the-counter deodorants and body gels

4. Talking about herself all the time

It is an instant turn-off to find out that all a woman does is talk about herself. Men are not into overly self-obsessed women. Instead, they expect to have a two-way conversation where both parties talk about themselves and one another. 

5. Being Materialistic

Men become instantly uninterested in women who care too much about the material things. It is even a bigger turn off when a woman expects him to shower her with expensive gifts and dinners without any special occasion.

6. No clear goals

Most men find it extremely unattractive if a woman has no life or career goals and she no idea what she wants out of life. Women without a progressive lifestyle are a turn-off especially in the 21st century where both men and women are expected to chase their life and career goals.

  1. This is funny as hell. My boyfriend is the one that does all these things. His Longest relationship was 3 months. Mine was 12 years.

  2. Ooooh the fun of it is none of the above related to me I thank God for that. My boyfriend has just start to give me a cold shoulder after I refused to send some dollars.all he wanted was money because he always comes with the problems that need USD to be solved

  3. I think the men have same issues…. if not more. The modern l day men have become more effeminate!

  4. 1# They left off bitching about everything and never happy.
    If you put down the toilet seat it was too fast or too hard or to slow.
    2# Want you to be a mind reader!

  5. RIDICULIOUS. Relationship don’t work by women alone. relationship work two way(meet each other halfway) not one way (men).compromise.

  6. I have a son who is married to all of the above. She is simply never happy. She is dragging and breaking him. Hoping he will say enough and walk.

  7. I’ve known some men that obsesse about themselves and are materialistic. It’s not always the women.

  8. Lol, i think the current affairs one is stupid. I shouldn’t have to like talking about the world to be loved. I HATE talking about the world, it’s all negative, and it’s something I can’t control. Personally, I like to accept things for what they are and be happy. There are things that matter and there are things I can control, I care more about the things that matter and I can control right in the middle. It’s called happiness and growth. Don’t like it? You can suck it.

  9. Pet peeves me when they start talking about are previous conquests in detail. This is not appealing to a woman at all grow up and understand that women don’t want to hear this crap.

  10. When he comes over and all you do is watch tv till 1 of you fall asleep. Then he sneaks off in the middle of the night.
