People Share Their All-Time Biggest Turn Offs

As much as we love to have eyes for others, those eyes are witness to some yuck.

We are easily turned on by many things and people.

We're humans, humans are easy.

But turning off and shutting down is also easy.

And once we see certain things, they can never be unseen.

And so... we move on.

Let's make a list so people stay vigilant.


Redditorfiginjosejospewanted to hear about what makes us yell a big NO for some things.

They asked:

"What is your biggest turn off?"

I am easily turned off. It's my one flaw. Anything can do it. Alas...

Bad Sniffs

"When people smell bad. Hygiene is important."

Better

"One-uppers. Whatever you have done/seen or place you have gone, they have done it better."

UgliestDisability

"I struggle with this SO BADLY. I hear someone’s story and think 'I can relate! I’ve done XYZ' and tell the story. As soon as I see their facial expressions change I know they’ve taken it as me one upping. It’s so hard for me to relate without telling the story WHY I relate."

Be Straight

"Deception. Say what you freaking mean, and your actions must match your words."

armywalrus

"I don't know if this counts as deception but I have the hardest time verbalizing my thoughts in the way that I think them. So I say something that doesn't match my thoughts but it's like theres a disconnect in my brain that doesn't let me say what I want to say. I've had multiple tbi's from a young age but I don't know if that has any to do with it."

Just Listen

"When they constantly cut you off during a conversation."

Exact_Mammoth6874

"I noticed my bad habit of interrupting when I started dating my partner. I worked on it because it bothered him so much. Now when I'm around my family who I don't see often, I'm keenly aware of how bad we all are at it. Dinners, drinks, video calls are a literal cacophony of people talking over each other and having to repeat yourself because no one listens."

Over time...

"Entitlement."

Hercdajerk35

"Having been on this earth almost six decades, I can say this has definitely gotten worse over time. Now, you can see it getting worse by the year."

I hate entitled people. Nobody is owed anything.

That's all...

"When a person is rude or just behaves poorly and everyone around them says, 'that's just how he/she is.' No. There is no excuse for piss poor behavior."

Be Prudent

"Over sharing at social media."

naniyamanaki

"I had an ex who would straight up get pissed if I didn’t post about us on instagram or facebook back when I had it. Even if we just hung out and did nothing Lol. She got even more upset if I did post something and not include her... or if I got more likes than her."

AskinggAlesana

"Social media has completely ruined our brains… it’s so sad to realize the damage that’s been done in such a short amount of time."

e-commerceguy

Trash

"Littering. I absolutely hate it when people litter just because 'there is no trashcan close' or 'Yeah, but everything here is anyway already dirty.' That makes me so annoyed and just ugh. I can understand that it's annoying to keep on holding onto trash but like... It's not that difficult."

Lips Together

"Open mouth chewer. Or any kind of lip smacking while eating."

welshegg

"At a family reunion, I got seated in front of a woman I hadn't met before. Food gets there and we started loading ourselves up. I still remember what we had: tostadas."

"They're a flat baked or fried tortilla topped with pretty much whichever ingredients you want. Usually meat, some veg, cheese, cream, and salsa. This is relevant because half of that food ended up smeared on her face. I have never seen a grown a** adult eat like that. Open mouth chewing, with food actually spilling out as she ate."

"Loud, boisterous talking and laughing, with more, half chewed food spilling out everywhere. And napkins seemed to not be a thing for her because she never used one, making all the cream and salsa get stuck to her lips and cheeks. I was freaking disgusted, as was everyone around her. That was not a pleasant meal."

Ihlita

Hang Up

"Using phones every time we hang out."

mortally_guarded

"My wife has a friend that if you aren’t talking to her about only her, she zones out and just stares at her phone."

When the turn is off. It's off. And that's all.


People Explain Which Things They Can Never Say No To

There are some things I just won't say no to. Food, for one. I just love to eat. Bonus points if we're going to go somewhere. Eating can be a very intimate and communal experience.

It's the best, okay? Chinese? Indian? Want a burger? Why don't we hit up a pub somewhere and sit down for a pint and see where our stomachs lead us?

Yeah, my wallet doesn't always like it, but you know what, food is what makes life worth living.

There are plenty of other things out there that people are equally as passionate about. We heard all about them after Redditor fistbump101 asked the online community,

Nothing is forever. It's a grim reality but no matter how hard we try and ignore it, our inevitable demise looms ahead on the horizon.

And while we individually have our unknown expiration dates, the fate of the human race is an unfathomable mystery that will continue to elude us.

Hopefully, the fateful event is thousands of years beyond our lifetime.

There is little more important than a good night's sleep.

But getting a good night's sleep isn't always easy to come by.

As a result, many people have an important ritual or method which helps them fall asleep easily and wake up feeling rejuvenated.

So much so, that if they attempt to sleep without this method or helping hand, they might find themselves staying awake all night.

It's very easy to jump to conclusions about a small sniffle... or noticing what looks like the beginning of a rash.

Most of the time, It's easy enough to rub it off as just a cold, or an allergic reaction which might clear up with some lotion, and thus don't feel the need to alert their doctor about it.

Though others might worry that it could be the beginning of something more serious.

But even with that looming possibility, they still avoid seeing a doctor, perhaps afraid to learn that their fears turned out to be true.
