I was thinking today about the little things over the course of my dating years men have done/said that instantly made me think "nope, not you". They were probably perfectly nice people in retrospect...

1) Looked mildly nonplused about a woman in a picture having underarm hair.

2) Liked Miranda.

3) Used the phrase "wedding tackle".

There are probably countless more. Tell me yours...

3) Spent more than two minutes "grooming" to go out.

Oops, that post got muddled. Someone in the past has probably listed "Can't count to 4" about me somewhere...

Talking about money!

Wore loafers.

Lots and lots of sexists.

Always late

Say lol at the end of every sentence

Used emojis for almost an entire text conversation

Kissed me and licked my entire mouth

I was just at the chatting on the phone stage with one man. He used the word 'chuckle'. That was it, I'm afraid.

Told me his ideal holiday is camping. Tent and all.

A faint smell of unaired clothing.
Was proud of the fact he'd had a short relationship with a married woman.

Kissed me and liked my entire mouth <gags>

Assuming I would be OK with their racism.

Wanted to be a wrestler.

Smoked whilst having a poo.

haha Kissed me and licked my entire mouth
I've been put off by a very wet kisser... felt like he was licking my face :S
Funnily enough a friend went out with him a while later and she said he was the best kisser she'd known... so maybe there really is someone for everyone!

Wore tight white straight leg jeans that came to way above his ankles with thick white socks and black trainers. That combo sent him straight home single!

Bloody hell, some of these things are far from little... especially "chuckle" <barf>

Do you think someone somewhere is thinking "I love a man in straight leg white jeans and white socks"?

Making everything into an innuendo, said in a slimy, pervy way.

Then he pulled the back of my skirt up in the street. No reason. WTAF?

Then he asked if I'd like to come back for some (cue pervy voice) pudding?

Bleugh. No thanks weirdo!

I'm not single, but if I was, I'd have to decline to date any man who wears skinny jeans. Yick.

Nettletheelf Thu 20-Apr-17 16:25:23

Asked me whether I liked Proust, then spent the whole date going on about bloody Proust. Think he was trying to look clever.

Yes to the faint smell of unaired clothing.

pnutter Thu 20-Apr-17 16:25:41

Yes to innuendo
Also, telling unfunny jokes all the time hmm

TakeAwayThatCaterpillar Thu 20-Apr-17 16:26:49

Yes to the faint smell of unaired clothing

As in that that's what you're looking for in a man?

Nettletheelf Thu 20-Apr-17 16:27:45

Didn't express that very clearly, did I? Yes as in recognition, not yes as in I am drawn to it!

Hapaxlegomenon Thu 20-Apr-17 16:27:47

Dabbed a bit of my concealer on when he had a pimple.

Repeatedly said 'arrrr let the dog see the rabbit' when presented with anything from food to tits.

Talking about how our children would have to be brought up catholic and I'd have to convert - on our first and only date.

Nettletheelf Thu 20-Apr-17 16:28:40

Just wondering whether to contribute a description of weird sex talk that made me bin somebody off.

HolditFinger Thu 20-Apr-17 16:30:42

Oh go on Nettle! You have to tell us now!
