  • Nope. I find smoking to be absolutely disgusting and would prefer not to spend a lot of time, possibly the rest of my life, with someone who engages in such an unhealthy habit that likely compromise my healthy as well as theirs.

  • It kinda depends on the smoker and more specifically their smoking habits. I'm a lifelong non-smoker and I have dated smokers in the past and it can work but it is an issue.

    It's not ideal but it doesn't have to be a deal breaker if they are conscientious about it and you are a bit tolerant.

    I would say yes, though.

  • Didn't answer the poll since it didn't have some form of "It depends".

    I don't smoke, I don't want to be with someone that is a smoker. But I won't be so rigid as to make it a deal breaker. Someone that wants a huge family and I want no kids, that is a deal breaker. That isn't something you can work through in a way that makes both parties happy. But smoking? Let's say you meet the most wonderful person. Love their heart, their mind, their soul, the way they look, their tastes, you are just perfect together. But they smoke. Do you throw that away over smoking? You can explain you worry about their health (and your own) and would like them to quit but they might not. I think if they are willing to cut back (like my grandfather would smoke outside only and he didn't therefore spend the rest of his days on the back porch. He went out back when he needed a cig, a few times a day). Wasn't perfect, but it worked. Not ideal, but it's about balance. Hopefully over time their doctor and mutual friends encourage them to give it up. But I won't throw away a possible perfect mate over a relatively superficial flaw like that.

    • Yeah that's understandable. And I would definitely push towards my partner ENDING their smoking habit for their own sake not just mine.

  • i don't smoke, but i love someone who does and he's very respectful of me (and in general). he doesn't light up near me, and he won't kiss me immediately afterward or without brushing his teeth first.

    yes, i'm concerned for his health, but i won't tell another person what to do with his or her body, regardless of what my relationship to that person is.

    i agree with many of the previous comments that it doesn't have to be a deal-breaker if both parties are respectful of each other.

    • No I don't think you should tell someone what to do with their body but I personally would have a serious/respectful conversation with them about the consequences of smoking and how it's not good. That's if I liked the person a lot. And if we were married I would definitely say it is not good as a parent to smoke I would say "how would you feel if our kids knew that you were a smoker?"
      I would never really date a smoker though personally

    • Show All
    • Yeah I understand. No need to go to the extreme (at least he is more careful with when and where he does it) hopefully he decides to quit soon for the best of all of you, thanks for the opinion my friend

    • you're welcome :)

  • Only if they are actively quitting.

  • Yes, moderately or less. He just needs to brush his teeth and put on some cologne afterwards.

    No's for a partner smoking:

    in the house/apt
    in the car
    during family events/get togethers
    around pets or children

    • Makes sense, really just causing issues for himself only in regard to cancer/health but not affecting anyone else

  • As long as they don't smoke inside, don't smell like it and aren't excessive chain smokers I don't mind.

  • No that's really unappealing to me. I don't judge people for doing it, but I so badly don't want to be around that smell all the time that it would automatically "friend zone" people. Like I'll talk to you and hang out with you no problem, but I'm not kissing that smokey mouth or cuddling with someone who smells like smoke.

  • Probably wouldn't, I'm kinda afraid I'd get used to the smell/taste and find it nice, maybe I'll start smoking as well :o I've smoked twice before, and I didn't think it was that bad, although I don't want to start smoking for real, so having a boyfriend who smokes would probably not be a great idea.

  • No way. My first boyfriend started smoking about halfway into our relationship. He didn't do it around me, but he always reeked of it on his clothes and his breath and it was so gross.

    I also have asthma and it gets worse when exposed to cigarette smoke. Plus I can't stand the smell of it. Staying healthy is very important to me and I couldn't be with someone who didn't care about his own health.

  • For me, yeah, and I have. That said, I'm living in Japan where you might exclude half the female population if you refuse to date smokers.

    Another thing I found surprising is that one of the girls I dated who was quite a heavy smoker never had the taste of cigarettes in her breath. Not sure if she was chewing mints or whatever in between, but I never noticed her smelling of tobacco.

    And another thing, smokers who think it is their right to dispose of their smoke into anyone elses space without a care really piss me off. Smoke all you want, it's your lungs and your decision. but stop sending your exhaust my way.
