Things that turn ladies off

Turn off is something that disgusts you or finds embarrassing or unappealing.

Below are some factors that turn ladies off.

1. Being Ignored

One of the key ways most ladies judge how important they are to their partner is by how much attention they get from him when expressing concerns and opinions.

Ladies are turned off when guys act like other things are more important to them. When guys show interest at the beginning of a relationship but then switch gears as things progress, a lady's attraction for him often takes a dive too.

2. Preoccupation with Sex

Whether you're on a first date or in a 10-year marriage, ladies don't want to feel solely like sex objects.

Though it depends on the lady, when a relationship is new, a man would do best to hold off on sharing any sexually explicit stories (including past performances) and comments until he's sure the lady he's with is up for it.

Most ladies want to be caressed, complimented and otherwise shown affection and intimacy outside the bedroom too.

3. Straight-Up Chauvinism

The path toward gender equality has improved a lot over the past decades, but that doesn't mean there aren't still men who consider themselves  superior in sex. Some have a belittling title for every lady. 

Whatever the chauvinist behavior, it seldom fails to be a turn-off for women.

4. Not Helping Out

Most ladies prefer to share the responsibilities of raising kids and running a household. Since the vast majority of ladies work outside the home, this is more of a necessity than anything else.

So it's a real turn-off for a lady if a guy's notion of who handles the children and household chores is stuck in the 1950s.

5. Ogling Other Lady

Guys who stare at other ladies or are overly flirtatious with them may find themselves largely on their own.

Ladies like guys who are respectful enough to pretend they don't notice other ladies.


6. Boorish Behavior

Ladies always prefer a gentleman. A lady expects a guy who's interested in her to approach her thoughtfully and respectfully.

So any guy who wants to attract ladies should aim to check the boorish behavior; using vulgar language, getting drunk or high, dominating conversations so no one else can get a word in, and showboating.

7. Poor Grooming Habits

While sweaty athletes and grungy rock stars may initially turn a lady on, getting closer to the body odors that accompany them is another story.

Most guys want sleek, gorgeous women, so it's fair to assume ladies don't want men with pot bellies, dirty fingernails, rumpled clothes, and disheveled hair.

8. Bad Pick up Lines

A sense of humor is a great thing; when a guy is funny. A good pickup line will leave a lady with a lasting impression. Some guys try too hard (sometimes with offensive pickup lines), and that's a turn-off.

What Guys Can Do

If you're a guy whose relationship is suffering and you don't know why, consider these female turn-offs. They should give you some insight into how to do better to attract more ladies.

And if you're a lady whose partner is guilty of any of these turn-offs for women and you don't know how to confront him, consider leaving this article where he'll see it.
