5 Weird Things That Turn Me Off About Guys

Inspired by this post about 10 weird things that turn the poster on.

1) Awkwardness

I know some people find a guys awkwardness cute, but it can get pretty uncomfortable and mutual comfort is just attractive to me.

2) Over Confidence

If you walk around thinking you're a God I'll automatically find you incredible unattractive.

3) Over Estimation Of Intelligence

Guys who walk around thinking they're so smart and shoving all of their opinions on religion, politics, and life down peoples throats because they feel their opinions are the only right ones are not only unattractive but really annoying.

4) Invading My Personal Space

Some guys will literally be aware of the fact that you are cringing away in disgust and yet continue to try and give you hugs and touch you. It's unappealing and it makes me like you even less.

Don't touch me. I shouldn't need to tell you that.

5) Over Masculinity

Giving our genders each specific roles is agitating. As in, thinking I shouldn't be the one driving or I should be the one cooking or any general sexism whatsoever. I don't want to be treated like you think I'm weak or less competent than you at certain things, I want to be treated like your equal and respected like a woman.

So there you have it, things that turn me off.

      Why the dislikes? o_0 it seems like an honest question to me?

    • 3mo

      @E-Nigma Yes, it is a sincere question. If I say, "I don't like A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, or J in a girl," it might leave you wondering 'hasn't he eliminated 99% of the girls out there?' You might also wonder if I have a rather negative attitude about girls since I am focusing on so many negatives.

      So. . . I asked the question to try to get a better understanding of the motivations here. Why someone would read that and perceive a negative is beyond me!

  • They are all highly debatable generalizations about guys. Only a minority of guys will have any ONE of these traits.

    • Many guys have them, thereby, she doesn't say that guys have them and thus doesn't generalize, but only states that she finds them less attractive if they do...

  • I would say these things also apply with us guys when it comes to women. Though I would've covered some more indepth things that turn me off about women if I wrote this... Heyyyyy, maybe I will!

    • lol I don't get why people always do this. When someone says something about that they don't like about the opposite gender, someone from the opposite gender always has to say something like "it's the same way with girls" you even complain about people doing that. Yet... Bunch of hypocrites on this site lmao.

    • @99percentangel Joking?
      Please note the absence of "lol's".
      Usernames have meaning, stories, history and scope.
      Or... they just look cool.
      I'm leaning on the profound thing... for yours.

      Isn't that a tad more interesting than being relegated to a rhetorical question, posed to a non-script assemblage of Human beings... twice?

    • @99percentangel I agree to both of you...

      but let me remind you both.. we all have freedom of speech.. so we can say our opinion... so stop judging each other..
      It will create never ending misunderstanding.. nothing less

  • All girls under the age of 20 have a big problem with ego these days (quite the opposite of the '50s).

    As they age, they start to waver... they start to realize that confidence is typically extremely sexy, while overly confident still isn't, and they actually start to prefer touchy-feely guys for some reason.

    • the confidence can be a turn off because it's not real...

    • Show All
    • Lol, if that were true, girls my age wouldn't have as many boyfriends/girlfriends. Plus, I'm not really all that confident in who I am, considering I'm always being called a show-off. I can't even enjoy doing what I love without people constantly knagging me. It's not like I ever say "Hey, look at me!" or "I'm way better at this than you are!" This just turned into a full on rant, but thanks anyway. I needed to get that out.

  • Technically, everyone tends to overestimate their intelligence.

    • @EnglishArtsteacher that's totally not true, women like it, when they don't is just because they don't like the person approaching them

    • I know, right?
      Sometimes in a crowd, when I'm "accidentally" bumped by a pretty Woman...
      ... I gotta wonder?

  • Don't hold expectations towards the opposite gender when you yourself can't hold up those same expectations cause that just makes you a hypocrite everthign you just mentioned is what I see in most girls as well.

  • Basically the same for me when it comes to women except it's a bit different.

    1. Major Awkwardness
    2. Over Confidence
    3. Over Estimation Of Intelligence
    4. Invading My Personal Space
    5. Excessive Clingyness

    Number 1 is never controlled by the offender.
    Number 2 Isn't this the opposite of number 1 I'm confused.
    Number 3 I think everyone does this and if someone does it in a way that bothers you get their goat on something.. they deserve it.
    Number 4 Is a form of assault tell them so.
    Number 5 Gender roles, I generally agree. I say be pragmatic rather than dictatorial.

  • What exactly do you want me to do about my social anxiety/awkwardness? I was born not being able to interact with others as well as most people, and I still can't. Does that automatically make me a creep or something? My social disorder? Gee, thanks.

    • That is not what she is saying! I'm have General Anxiety Disorder, so I'm not much fun to be around, if you can't stand being told the truth at times, but honestly I was born a bitch so not much I can do about it. ._.

  • Surprisingly, i agree with them all... they are turn ons to a certain extent...
    everything is good in moderation... the above mentioned things were just over the top.
    I keep 2, 3, and 5 for the homies... every guy knows that.

    I nvr left an opinion whoa! I saw this Q on a dude's question thing on his profile. Yeah... I agree, that confidence isn't real like I said in my old comments... confident guys are calm, and sexy, and even borderline indifferent sometimes. They don't need to overdo anything. Or they can be emotional, but only about personal issues! Not trying to prove anything. If he shows off, he's trying to impress, so that's not confident anyway. But I think show off guys are childish, and calm or even nerdy guys can be sexy... and I love big and tall guys by the way. I like skinny too, but I <3 big ones.

    #2 is pretense, and I am with you for that. Not only it would put me off but also I would find myself harboring speculations whether he knows what he's blabbering or not.

    Throw in narcissism too because it's a mask for their emotional inadequacy.

    Number 2... I haven't met and spoken to a lot of men in my life, but I have seen online (but not met) a guy who thought that he was superior, just because he was fit and was modeling. He who had just the same educational degree and in the same career as I, therefore was more superior, and Mr. Superior was single.

    There's a scale with all of them. Awkwardness is fine, but when it gets to the point where you're unable to get to know them, then it makes things fizzle out. (Hey, I'm awkward, too... I recognize our faults.)

    I completely agree. I think this just goes for people in general. I remember one time me and my friend were going to this game club at our highschool during lunch. My friend dropped the controller and all the nerds flipped out on her. We just got up and left right away hands in the air like "I'm out, I'm out!"

    I agree with #1 to some extent and #2 (especially this one) and #3.
    Being a rude judgmental asshole is the worst, ugliest trait of all. It can take a 10/10 to a -1/10 in 3 seconds flat.

      To clarify
      #1 only works with certain guys
      #2 only works/is tolerable if you have the goods to match/merit your confidence AND if you're funny
      #3 if you're actually intelligent and humble about it.
