Based upon my questionnaire for singles, the following dating “turnoffs” were
Appearing nervous and anxious on the date
Appearing high maintenance?
Not mentioning that you have children upfront
Lying about some personal aspect prior to first meeting, i.e.,
truth in advertising (age, career, weight, financial situation)
A cheap guy: i.e., the guy expecting the gal to pay exactly half
Talking about your ex
Arrogant assumptions (Assuming your date likes everything
you do!— plans, food, activities)
Crude remarks or insensitivity
Rude Behavior (Bad manners towards waiters and other
Bragging about your salary or material stuff
Giving third degree questioning like you are a reporter on
Taking out your glass eye and other disgusting habits
A person not well-groomed or sloppy (self, home, car)
Poor shaving, bad breath, wrinkled clothes, unkempt hair, and
Not able to hold a two way conversation (like pulling teeth!)
Acts like the date is a business meeting
Overly eager person who is over the top! (big bouquet on first date)
Someone not considerate of your time
Waits until the day of the date to finalize plans for the date
Coming late for the date with no good reason and no call telling
you that they’d be late.
An overly scheduled person (Too many things planned: Both for the
date and after the date)
Trying to get too personal on the first couple of dates. Don’t let it all
hang out yet.
Unreliable- not following through on what you said you would
do, when you said you would do it
Too “hands on” on the first date (before getting to know you or
getting the green light!)
Unrealistic expectations: instant relationship (Expects there is a
relationship before there really is one).
