Most people have had to experience one of this at one
time or the other. A Nigerian lady with already
established expectations of the kind of person she wants
on a date, his attitude, manners and many other things
even a pen cannot put down, some of these just tend to
be seriously important.
Many guys have been here and experienced it.
The date’s going perfectly, but all of a sudden something
goes wrong and she’s gone cold.
Ever been there? Well, here are a few of the biggest turn
offs for girls that may have pulled the trigger.
Pinpointing the turn offs for women is not easy.
After all, every girl is different and made of sugar and
And which guy on earth actually knows all the ingredients of
that perfect sugar and spice blend?!
The biggest turn offs for women
On a serious note though, there are a few girl turn offs that
can pull the plug on a perfectly great date.
Turning on a girl isn’t easy, and we’re not just talking about
tweaking any body parts here.
Getting a girl to like you is difficult business. It’s like playing
a role playing game, where each move is unique and confusing.
But whether it’s making hay in the rain or just wanting to
know how to impress women, the biggest turn offs for women
are all the same.
Now, some women like big hands and some like small things. I
can’t tell you every girl’s personal preference, so I’ll just tell
you what you need to know to make sure you never find
yourself in the middle of a girl’s turn off zone!
#1 Insecure personalities
One of the biggest turn offs for women is a guy who’s
insecure about himself. If you’re not confident about
yourself or are feeling nervous, trust me, it shows. This is one
of the biggest reasons why guys get spurned on a date.
Are you happy being who you are? Do you think you make for
great company? If you aren’t happy being who you are, what
are the odds that the girl you’re with would like your
company? Some guys have a great positive aura around
themselves and some guys are just plain nervous and scared.
If you’re an insecure guy, it’s time to change your behavior.
Or lose the girl!
#2 Oversensitive guys
All our lives, we’ve been taught to be nice and chivalrous. We
know we have to help the damsel in distress, step aside in an
elevator, hold the door open for women, and make sure she’s
all happy and gay.
To sum it up, we’ve all been taught to think like a girl and
experience what they feel. But somewhere along the line,
some guys take the whole game of being chivalrous and
experiencing the womanliness inside a man to a whole new
level. Drum roll… welcome… the sensitive guy.
Sensitive guys are really nice guys who’ve listened to their
mama and have learnt their manners. They’re very much in
touch with the feminine side inside them, but they’ve been so
rigorously trained on connecting with their feminine side that
they’ve crossed the line and have gone way overboard.
Watching a mushy movie with a guy and crying on his manly
shoulder is a great way for a girl to spend Sunday afternoon,
but sharing tissues to wipe each other’s tears? Nope, that’s
just not right. Same goes with guys who ask if a girl’s having a
nice time a hundred times on a date.
#3 Being cocky or pompous
Some guys think they have it all. And at some point, all the
attention and the smothering from their parents and buddies
make them assume they own the world. They make idiotic
statements and love talking about their own glorious deeds or
misdeeds. Do you incessantly talk about how well you played a
game or how many cars you own?
Well, say what you want, you’re just going to be a cocky
pompous prick. Even gold diggers may get bored of you in no
time. Learn some humility and you could still get back in a
girl’s good books.
#4 The foot in the mouth
Now this isn’t a bad thing, but we’ve all experienced it. Here
are a few instances. You’re kissing a girl, and all of a sudden,
you stop and tell her you need to pee. You touch a girl on a
date and excitedly tell her how happy you are to touch her.
You’re having an affair with a girl, and you ask her if she
feels weird about kissing someone other than her boyfriend.
You get the drift, don’t you? This is not always your fault,
but nevertheless, it’s still a huge turn off for women.
#5 Boring guys
Gosh, another big one on the list. Have you ever met a guy who
was just too boring? Now I don’t mean nerdy or geeky, those
types can be great guys and even better boyfriend materials.
I’m talking about boring guys whose company can kill you in no
All girls and guys have experienced this at some point in their
lives. We’ve all had to sit next to a guy, and his conversations
were so boring that you would rather jump off a cliff. To
avoid being a guy in this cliché, work your conversation
around what your date wants to talk about. If you see her
looking around while you’re talking, it’s time to change the
conversation. If you see her eyes light up and her gestures
getting animated, you’ve hit the conversation jackpot, baby!
#6 Dumb guys
Are you a dumb guy? Yeah, of course, you aren’t. But many
guys are really dumb without realizing it. Now I’m not talking
about being an idiot or the village simpleton. I’m talking about
guys who speak their minds on a date, without thinking about
how their date would feel. If she’s looking around while you’re
talking, and you realize you need to change the topic of
conversation, do it discreetly. Don’t ever say, “oh, you’re
getting bored, aren’t you? You can tell me, I won’t mind…”
Unless you want your date to claw her nails into the leather
of her seat or crawl her toes in awkward cringing
desperation, avoid being a dumb guy.
#7 Fidgety and touchy guys
Movies always portray an exaggerated version of the touchy
feely guy. You don’t need to have sensitive nipples to be a
touchy feely guy in real life. The worst part of being a touchy
and fidgety guy is that most guys don’t know they’re that
Let me give you a few examples here. Do you play with your
hair, your pen, or start tapping your foot or drumming the
table now and then while bobbing your head like a giraffe
when you’re bored? Do you find yourself touching your chest
a lot after working out for a few days? Bingo! You’re that
fidgety and touchy guy. Don’t ever be touchy feely when
you’re on a date, it can be annoying and at times, even creepy!
Now we have the mirror cracking good looking boy. Any guy
who spends more time in front of the mirror than his own
girlfriend is a huge turn off. But we’re not stopping there. If
you’re having dinner with your date, and the waiter
accidently spills a bit of juice on your silk shirt, wipe it away
like a man. Don’t whine about how your silk shirt is ruined and
behave like a drama queen.
In the world of dating, a narcissistic guy is one who’s overly
bothered about his own things like his cell phone, watch, or
just about anything else that belongs to him. Boy, you’re with
a woman. Let her be the cynosure of your eyes!
#9 A unmannerly prick
Manner, manners. Girls like a guy who knows his manners. Now
every guy should know his manners *though he should never
push it and become the sensitive guy*. But that’s not it at all.
There’s something even bigger.
You should be man enough to apologize or accept that you’re
wrong. No guy’s a bigger sore loser or a turn off than a guy
who just can’t accept his fault, but would rather throw
tantrums and make a fuss and pout like a four year old. Learn
to man up and remember, accepting that you’ve made a
mistake is not a sign of weakness.
#10 The overenthusiastic fan
Are you into video games? Sports? Or perhaps, you like your
well toned muscles that could put Brad Pitt in Troy to shame.
Stop talking about it for a minute. It may be football fever
or anything else. But going on about it when you’re on a date
is a huge turn off, unless she’s very much into the same
activity. And if she doesn’t like your favorite team or doesn’t
share your interest, stop trying to rouse her interest by
going on talking about it. It’s just boring!
