When it comes to dating, everyone has their preferences. Preferences can always vary (i.e. hair color, height, eye color, fitness level), but there are a few dislikes that tend to be the same throughout most women: being overly cocky/insecure, dominating the conversation, trying way to hard, looking like a slob, and last but not least, bad breath/body odor.
Bad breath (also known as halitosis) can be downright nasty! Smell is an important sense, and bad smells can be the ultimate turn-off for women. Usually a guy can taste his own breath, and if it’s stale, he should definitely take some precautions if he is going on a date. Try some mouthwash, breath mints, etc. This turn off can usually be fixed very easily. If you do have chronic bad breath, it is worthwhile to check out the doctor or dentist and figure out what is wrong with you! Not only is it depressing to have health issues, but it is depressing to scare off your dates, as well. If there is a doubt in your mind that you have bad breath, ask a female friend before you scare off your potential girlfriends. Bad breath can be a dealbreaker!
