Offs That Cause The Opposite Sex To Respond Negatively
By Rosemary Packard
working with men and women for years I have discovered that there are
certain turn-offs that cause the opposite sex to respond negatively. Here
are the following:
Men Turning Women Off
- Never ask a woman on the phone how old she is-
her weight- or personal questions.
- On a date do not ask a lady questions such as "How
many men have you been intimate with" or "How many men have
you dated since your divorce"-Personal questions like this are
none of your business and should be discussed at a later time.
- Do not ever offer to "go dutch"
- or make comments such as "I forgot my wallet" or "I
can't believe how expensive this dinner is." This will be your
- Do not boast about how much money you make- what
a good looking guy you are-your large home-expensive cars or your savings
- It is in very rude to flirt with other women, or
look around at other ladies while you are out with them.
Do not bring a cell phone and let it ring and ring and conduct business
while you are with your date.
Ladies Turning Men Off
- Do not talk about your ex husband or boyfriend
in a negative manner or make comments such as "All the men I know
are jerks"- or "There are no good men left."
- Do not discuss all your health problems, surgeries,
medical bills, and doctor appointments, or car accidents.
- Do not drink excessively and act loud and
- Do not drill a man with question after question
like you are on a job interview- such as "How long have you worked
at your job"- "What college did you go to"- "Why
did you get a divorce" - "How many women have you dated since
your divorce"-Where do you live", etc.
- Do not be business like and act like you are at
work. Your femininity and softness must come out. Business like women
usually do not get asked out again.
