Do you men disgust women?

Here are 10 non-grooming habits men have that disgust women

A women’s site asked their Facebook friends to share the grooming issues that disgust women most about men. One friend suggested buying “a huge billboard that all men can see.” Mad Mike’s America shares these little-known secrets to help our male readers.

Undoubtedly, there are more “no-nos” on this list, but these 10 will do fine for now.

1.   Long, dirty toe nails. Some refer to men’s dirty toenails, especially with hair feet, as “Hobbit feet.” Men, you don’t have to sit for a pedicure, but there’s no excuse for claws filled with dirt.

2.   Unnecessary Hair. Nose hair is a number-one complaint; ear hair is a close second.

3.   ”Yuck Mouth.” Seriously. Basic hygiene is not too much to ask, guys. Brushing and flossing takes about five minutes. Some men think they can get away with “yuck mouth.” You can “forget” to brush your teeth if you really want to, but do not expect that good night kiss… or anything else for that matter. A tongue scraper can also help.

4.   Unattractive smells. When’s the last time you took a shower? Deodorant can’t cover everything. Some men neither shower nor deodorize. No one smells so good that they can get away with being stinky.

5.   Eyebrows. Either overgrown or over plucked eyebrows are a turnoff. Actually, unruly eyebrows may attract some women: but, if you have them, please don’t over-pluck them. Overly plucked, perfect eyebrows on men often turn women off.

6.   Cologne, body spray, after shave Make sure you don’t smell like you bathed in it. Less is more . If everything you touch starts to smell like favorite aftershave, use a lighter touch. At the gym, the after shave stink intensifies. The cheap stuff is even worse. Find an unscented product. (Women, this also applies to being overly perfumed.)

7.   Smoking. Even when you want to be considerate and escape outside to grab a smoke, you’ll still stink when you get back to your date. If you date someone that smokes, no problem, right? You don’t need a lecture anyone about the health dangers of smoking. You already know them. Let’s move on.

8.   Oh, please, no. Do you really need to itch your junk or pick your nose right now? Flatulence is not that funny.

9.   Helmet hair. If your hair is as hard as a car door, quit putting so much product on. Who wants to run their fingers through a rigid mass that doesn’t blow in the wind?

10.   Nails. Don’t leave your nails dirty. If you work in a field where you use your hands, just cut them short.

It’s your turn, guys. I’m not a man, but women who wear overly strong perfume especially at the gym is digusting. Anything we need to know about what turns you off?

    I have a few Dorothy, but I am sure no of them apply to you.
    Women who insist on calling me “honey, baby, darling, etc.” I have a name, use it.

    The over powering perfume. Having to wear a gas mask around women just doesn’t make for a fun time.

    Wearing too much jewelry. I don’t go out with jewelry racks full of bangles, bracelets, rings, and everything else that sparkles.

    Women who are clothes horses. Dress nice but I could care less who designed your dress or shoes or how much it costs. I am not impressed with how much or how little you paid for it.

    Women who want to go to certain places so they can be seen there. Or if that’s the reason you want to go there, have fun, by your self.

    Women who are constantly freshening up their make up. Do it before your leave home and we can live the fact that it does last forever. Or better yet, go au natural.

    Those are just a few off the top of my head.

    As always, truly the gentleman lazersedge. Jeez, you were absolutely right about me.

    If someone called me “honey” while we were dating, I equated that with “player.” Pet names are OK for people who have been together a long time.

    Overpowering scents on anyone are disgusting, especially at the gym.

    Jewelery? Yes! My first thought is “What are you trying to prove?” I refused an engagement ring (I’d probably lose it anyway) in favor of a nice band, I opted for thin bands to mark special anniversaries in our marriage.

    Clothes horses annoy me. Anyone who pays retail for a dress (or suit) and brags about the designer and price isn’t smart enough to find a good deal.

    Those who want to be “seen.” Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it?

    I don’t wear makeup except on extremely rare occasions. I worked damn hard for those lines on my face, and I wear them proudly.

    OK, anyone else as brave as lazeredge? Inquiring women (and men) want to know…

      I will humbly to try and be brave. However, I am a girl and do agree with the article.
      I have never understood the perfume/cologne thing. To me, it screams out, I haven’t bathed! And the bad habits should, definitely, never be shown too early in dating! Good read. Um, and Lazersedge…. do these jeans make my butt look fat? ;-)

        hmm, not at all Tamra, not at all. You have a cute butt. Sorry I don’t tell you that more often. :)
