Top 10 Ways to Turn a Guy Off

Women usually know a thing or two when it comes to getting a guy's attention. But what some women don't know is how to turn a guy off. Whether you're trying to repel a guy or just want to be cautious of what not to do around a guy, here are ten ways to repel guys like mice running from a cat.
The Top Ten
1 Nag constantly

No one, especially guys, hates nothing more than having to be constantly nagged at for petty things or simply anything. If your nagging or lecturing your guy a lot, then stop. Men don't like pushy people and if you keep doing it to him, he may eventually snap, which can lead to being overall turned off.

I hate bossing and demanding things, so guys, don't worry about me, I won't ask you for money or anything. I as a female, I hate being bossed around a lot, I like to take charge of my life.

You are not really important enough for me to put up with that. Even if we are married.

2 Constantly talk about an ex

It's fine to bring up a past relationship once in a blue moon, it's normal. But excessively talking about an ex can only leave a guy wondering if your truly interested in him (current guy) or if your using him as a rebound. It's sadly common in the dating world for a person to be a victim or rebound, and it's definitely guaranteed that no guy wants to be used as a rebound. So unless if you want a guy to think your still hung up on your ex, then I suggest you don't choose an ex as a favorite topic of conversation when your with him.

It does bring a lot of suspicion if the woman is actually into you. Plus that's nothing I would want to hear from a girlfriend.

Check your baggage at the door now and forever. I am not a therapist to help you get over your emotional trauma.

3 Have bad hygiene

Nobody wants smelly girlfriend, or boyfriend. I mean, imagine you are just really tired and walk home, you open the door and sense some kind of odor, and the odor comes from your partner...

This title explains it. Bad breath, unshaved legs, unkempt hair, dirty clothes, and a filthy appearance overall can easily leave a guy running for his life.

It goes both ways. If you want a significant other then you better take care of yourself or else you will have your significant other running for their life

4 Be clingy

This is the number one turn off. A guy loves to have his own time and space from all of the things from his day from time to time. But when someone, especially his significant someone, ends up crossing too far into his boundaries, it can annoy him easily. This doesn't only apply to men, but women as well, as she likes to have time to herself sometimes.

This item reminds me of an incident when I was in 10th grade, I had a classmate whose girlfriend was really cheerful and clingy an flirty, She didn't leave him alone even for a second..not during even exams lol
Me and my friend were studying...And I saw him running away when he saw her coming! He collided with benches an stuff but he was still running! She quickly went to her seat..hid her face and started crying.
I was shocked but my friend was trying to hide her hysterical laughs...

I agree. Nobody wants someone as a girlfriend or boyfriend who will never leave you alone. People need their space

5 Have a jerk personality

Nobody wants to be with a stuck up jerk with a mean streak, so try your best to be courteous, kind, generous, and overall nice.

It's does not take rocket science to know that nobody wants a boyfriend or girlfriend who is a jerk. It's common sense

6 Be dishonest

Related to being fake, a guy likes someone who he knows he can trust. A man doesn't want to be with someone who always gives away his most prized secrets or someone that constantly lies.

Dishonest people cheat and use others.

This would likely drive me to insanity.

7 Wear too much makeup

Good items. But they can also apply to men as a turn-off to women - even this item. So many men nowadays are turning to make-up to impress us. It really doesn't. Women don't want men who look better than they do. Real women want real men and real men go au natural in the looks department. Real men should look and feel rugged. Pretty men with smooth skin, perfect hair, no shaving rash and wearing eyeliner and lip-gloss is a real turn-off.

Relating to some on the top, no guy wants to look like he just performed in the circus after kissing a girl. Too much makeup can make a girl look desperate or fake, so if your guilty of this, lay off of some make up.

Glad to hear that there are guys who prefer natural over makeup on girls. I'm a woman who despises makeup. Men don't need makeup to look good, so having women wear it is a stinking double standard.

8 Compare yourself to his mother

Haha! This is definitely true

9 Be a chatter box

Going back to number two, a guy likes to talk to his bae and likes to hear from them. But what a man doesn't like is someone that talks to him 24/7, especially when he has something very important to do or when it's not a good time. Remember to give him some space and talk when it's a good time.

Good thing I am not all too talkative, I am a ambrovert, meaning I can be really social, or really quiet.

10 Get implants

No, I am not Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj!

The Contenders
11 Fart
12 Be a flake

People who pretend to be someone else end up ironically getting the opposite of what they want. A guy loves the real deal, not some goddess/ god wannabe. When your being your true self, a guy can sense that from a mile away, same goes for flakiness.

13 Make fun of him when he’s wrong

Now it depends on the situation and how wrong he was but nobody likes to admit being wrong but there's absolutely NO reason to rub it in. The only thing it accomplishes is turning him off

14 Overreact

Over reacting causes unnecessary drama and everyone hates drama.

15 Send nudes

This is obvious for so many reasons. There's a surprising amount of men who find sexting a huge turn off. No man likes getting bombarded by sexts, which can land him or the sender behind bars, and don't like them in general. I strongly advise that you never dare send nudes. If your a student that goes to highschool or college, this can send your dreams of the perfect college or dream job down the toilet, and you could even get charged with sexual assault or sexual harassment of a minor. The same goes for sending drug pics or offensive content, so never even think of doing anything of that matter. You need to be smart and not do it, you'll thank me later on.

You don't like it when your SO sends you nudes? Yes, it can get you into really big trouble if you're underage. And yes, someone can release the photos and ruin a life. But sending nudes is fun if you can really trust your SO to not ever do anything as horrible as that.

But yeah, I recommend not sexting at all if you're underage or you don't have a trustworthy partner with morals.

16 Use bathroom humor

I never want to hear about your period. Period.

17 Always want to text and never hang out in person

I hate texting when you can call and my age group is always made fun of for texting it's like just shut up!

18 Be immature
19 Make a list called "Top Ten Ways to Turn a Guy Off"

Its nice that you care enough to find out what not to do.

Who made this item?

If only I had seen this earlier, wouldn't have wasted 5 minutes of my precious life

20 Talk politics
21 Be a stalker

That's borderline crazy girlfriend. If it isn't, then it's totally crazy psycho girlfriend territory.

22 Talk like an infant

Something is wrong with you.

23 Listen to boy bands in his presence

I listen to Hollywood Undead but they are rock and rap. But at the same time all the members are guys. So are they counted as as boy band?

Boy bands are awful anyways. I would listen to good rock/metal bands in his presence instead of that pop teenybopper trash.

You can listen to whatever you want geez I'm not gonna be turned off by it. Damn some boy bands are catchy if you let it sink in.

24 Be nosey
25 Be melodramatic
