Is smoking a turn-off?

Guys do think it's a turn-off when a girl smokes?

Does it make a difference what the girl smokes? My one friend said he thinks it's disgusting if a girl smokes cigarettes but it's ok if she smokes cigarillos?

Just curious ~

  • It's a major turn-off and unattractive.

    But I've dated girls who've smoked in the past.

    If you really like the person, then it doesn't matter if they smoke. What bothered me more is either:

    1. Me really liking them but not allowing my feelings for them to grow because I didn't feel she was serious about quitting, and I didn't like the idea of getting emotionally invested in someone who could develop cancer in the future and die. (seriously)

    2. Them viewing me trying to help them quit as me "controlling" them or telling them what to do; instead of trying to help them do what is in their best interest health-wise.

    To be honest though, I remember dating my exes who were smokers. At first, it was really unattractive that they smoked. But then, when we would kiss and I would taste the cigarettes, it was kind of cute. It's like, I know it's not the most appealing thing in the world, but it's "HER", the girl I like, so I didn't mind it. After a while, I actually liked it, and thought she looked sexy when she was smoking.

    In the beginning it might be unattractive, but as the guy likes you and his feelings for you start to grow, he'll understand that it's just a part of who you are, and you'll love it (but still wish you'd quit; not because he has anything against smoking, but because he wants you to be healthy).

  • Yep. Agree with everyone (how rare)

  • Huge turnoff no matter what you are smoking. Not only is it bad for your health and leaves everything around you with an awful stench, but I think it makes you look dumb, too.

  • If a guy smokes he might like the girl but on average smoking in general is a turn off, smoking and then trying to kiss is a bigger and girls that have this week crutch filled personalities that revolve around smoking and other types of things are in general very unattractive.

    But the real key is if you like smoking vs if you don't, a persons sex doesn't have that much influence but the trend is it looks sad and week on girls.

  • Yuk all the way around here..

  • Smoking is gross no matter what. It stinks up her breath, her clothes, her house, it's bad for the skin, and it's just stupid looking all around. If you smoke, quit.

  • I asked a guy and he said that its totally disgusting and he would not date a girl if she smoked and if his girlfriend started to he would try to get her to stop but if she refused he'd break up with her.
