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.

"The 'mean guy' persona."

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."

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..."

These are just bad habits.

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."

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.

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"

People Divulge What They Think Happens After We Die

Death is a certainty in life, but what happens after death may be one of those mysteries we never solve. I've always believed that when we're dead, we're dead. However, there are plenty of other theories.

Is there an afterlife? Do we face a supernatural judge who decides whether we go to heaven or hell? Do we get reincarnated as soon as we die? Or is death truly final?

These questions prompted Redditor Maleficent_Team430 to ask:

"What do you think happens to you after you die?"
