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.

Playing Tough

"The 'mean guy' persona."

It's A Mood

Better Than You

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."

Mistreating Of Others

"Cruelty"

Bad body odor can be a dating repellent. Occasional bathers, take heed.

"Lack of hygiene."

"My old roommate dated a guy for a bit until she found out he showers without soap. He said the chlorine in the city water was enough to clean him..."

That Tracks

"I know an 'influencer' who is dating a lawyer for his money... he sleeps without underwear and only ever wipes once. So... almost every night she wakes up and he's left skidmarks on the bedsheet..."

Oral Offense

"Agree 100%. Especially if they don't brush their teeth 🤢​"

Place They Call Home

"People who don't have clean houses. I don't mind mess and norm stuff like people smelling occasionally but people who are not clean in the kitchen and bathroom are gross."

These are just bad habits.

Leaving Trash

"Litter bugs. I dated a girl for about 6 months until I found out she would constantly litter. Her excuse was 'Someone will pick it up.'"

"We didn't last much longer after that."

Liars

"When people lie to me, even when I know the truth. That and bad hygiene."

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."

Quick To Judge

"mocking some's hobbies or interests without even having a general understanding of that thing."

"Belittling your partner."

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.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
