Sure, looks are important, but they fade over time.


Wouldn't you want to spend romantic evenings with someone with whom you share similar passions and a sense of humor?
Sure, quality characteristics are difficult to recognize at first glance, and it takes time to get to know someone.

But there are disagreeable traits that just stick out like a sore thumb when meeting someone for the first time.

People who are cocky and obnoxious are easily some of the most common, detectable turnoffs, but there are more red flags to look out for when pursuing someone.

Curious to hear what some of those are, Redditor hazard35 asked:
"What's your biggest turn off?"

Don't be fooled by good looks.

Prospective dates may be dreamy on the outside, but who they are in the inside could indicate they're not dating material.

Feigning Lunacy

"I'm a psycho hehehehe. Better be careful dating me I'm crazy heheheh'"

"I've lived with a schizophrenic parent, it's a very bad ride for the people closest to the person suffering. pretending you're crazy to look edgy is literally the biggest turn off for me."

"Just admit you're a jealous person, don't pull the 'I'm crazy hehe' card."

Gossipers

"Not sure if it's the biggest one, but when a person talks about others behind their back. I think we all do it when frustrated, but when someone makes it a part of their daily life, it becomes toxic and frankly undesirable."

When Their Phone Is More Interesting

"When they are staring at their smartphone, especially during a dinner date. It's a good reason to walk out."

Hands down, the biggest turn off for me is a person with halitosis.

Perhaps it is very shallow of me to admit, but all it takes for me to dismiss someone is if they have really bad breath—regardless of their charming personality.

Yes, the prognosis for halitosis is good with proper oral hygiene.

But until it is taken care of, I would be apprehensive about going in for the lip lock with someone who can potentially breathe fire into my lungs with their potent fumes.

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...

Redditor u/St3fan34 wanted to discuss life after life, by asking:

What do you think really happens after death?
