great post!!!

finally i can voice my opinion hehe!well...
1. keep conversation a two way thing...the worst is when some guy ends up talking about himself the whole night
3. even though women of today are wanting to be more independant and ARE,we still looooove to be treated as though we are princesses...so making us pay the first date or walking through the door first?mmmm,in my case that would be the first and last date

and...one more thing...please dnt think a silent burp is ok?!?!?!they sometimes smell a 100 times worse than what could come out the other end:D

I'd have to say the biggest turn off for me is...

See through shirts

I don't care if the shirt is new or fashionable, I just think it looks terrible. For example, one time, I saw this relatively good looking guy wearing a black fine mesh t-shirt and you can see through his shirt...but his shirt made his nipples looked huge, almost like the mesh had somehow magnified them! It was pretty disturbing. I wish I never saw that man's magnified nipples b/c I will never be able to get that horrid image out of my head. Ugh!

Another thing that annoys me about guys is when they ask you something about yourself and within second of answering the question, the guy's eyes drift over to the TV behind the bar where they remain for the rest of the date. :P

Confuse about the door thing.

I am very confused about how to open the door for women.
According to reeshie19, I can't walk through the door first. So do I have to open the the door in an awkward manner for the woman. I have to admit that i am not a strong man, so when i try to open the door for the woman without going through myself, it feels like the door is closing on me and just embarrass me more.
Do you think i should walk through another door then open the door for the girl?
I have been trying to figure out that door thing through last few months as i tried to open the door for the girl that i had a huge crush on all the time.

great post MissChickie...

Hmmm where to begin... here are three off the top of my head...

Men who ask a question and then don't listen to your answer but just wait for you to finish talking so they can put in their two cents on what they think... I appreciate a man who can listen. :o)

Men who are TOO into their looks, I am all for the metro man but to me there is something about a guy who can just throw on a tshirt and jeans and walk out the door. If a guy spends more time than myself getting ready to go out I find that to be a turnoff.

My all time big pet peeve are men that are NOT PORTABLE.... there is something to be said for a man who is easygoing enough to let loose and enjoy himself despite the different settings... he should be able to hang out in a bar, a corporate affair and at home on the couch....comfortably. If I feel I can't bring him into different settings (hence the portable) and not worry about him holding his own...then I tend to get annoyed.

The door thing

Hunter, the answer to your question is find a way to open that door for her. Even if you feel it closing in on you, hold it with all your might. When a man opens the door and breezes through without considering the woman 2 steps behind him or worse, his date/wife/girlfriend it looks mighty selfish. I know there are 2 or 3 women in the world ;) who find it offensive when a man opens the door for them but I do believe the rest of the female population appreciates it.

If you find it that bad, consider doing a bit of weight training. Not only is it good for your health, we girls do tend to like nice toned arms.

MizzRobin, love the point about portability. Nothing worse than a man you can't take anywhere. Life is for living and enjoying shared experiences.

You all made so many good points I agree with all of them. Bubbly Bunny's point about not paying attention made me laugh because we've all been there.

My pet peeves:
Listen! It's very annoying when you are with someone who only wants to talk about themselves. You should both be talking and listening to each other.

Don't treat me like the "little missus" whether that is at home, in business or any other aspect I expect to be treated with respect and not played down to because I am female and wouldn't understand. This is different from chivalry. Chivalry is about respect. The "little missus" routine is about treating women like we couldn't possibly comprehend the same things as your superior man brain. Luckily my husband does not do this to me or we would not be married, but I have met many men who have this mentality and I can't stand it.

Chewing with your mouth open Reeshie19 already mentioned and I've been advocating against this at every opportunity. It's wrong, gross and means we can't take you in public. See MizzRobin's point above.

Well well...

A smart man is so irresistible. Nothing turns me off more than when a guy opens his mouth and what he says has absolutely no substance!

On the same lines as Bubblybunny's comment on see through shirts, I can't stand it when men wear skin tight shirts (to show off their muscles). Makes me cringe! lol A man can look sexy in well fitted shirts, but skin tight ones should seriously be illegal. :S

Bodily functions don't usually phase me (farting and burping is ok with me). BUT! two things that I have a strong aversion to is when men spit or blow their noses on the sidewalk. So so gross!

misschickie explained it all for you hunter...stand in front of the door if you have to:)and i am totally with mizzrobin too,

Sigh... I smell big discrimination here.
So basically, weaker men, not as interesting men, and I think i need to ask around to see how i chew. I know what you girls mean and i hate women who chew with open mouth. I think my sister does that and thats why i can't eat at the same table with her.

Well while we are at it, I will add in my two cents.
1. Pretentious women turn me off. Thinking they are better than other people.
2. Women that had "enhancements" to their body. I don't care about size as long as they are real.
I will add more when i can think of more.

What about nose hair?

How do you rank nose hair? Does a man always have to carry a trimmer?
