What is your biggest dating turnoff?

We’d love to hear what

would put you off dating someone

First dates are all about making good first impressions.  If you don’t try hard enough then it’s very unlikely you’ll make a connection or persuade them to see you again.

Here are our top ten dating turnoffs which are made up of the most common complaints we hear.  We are including these so you can make sure you don’t make the same common mistakes!


1)  Turning up late

2) Rudeness and Bad Manners

3) Looking nothing like their photo in real life

4) Playing with their phone throughout the date

5) Being tight or mean about money

6) Boasting or trying too hard to impress

7) Coming on too strong too quickly

8) Poor dress sense

9) Not asking or answering any questions

10) Drinking too much

Remember, a little respect and courtesy can go a very long way.  You must always remember to be polite and show that you are genuinely happy to be with your date.  It’s not hard to have a good date but it’s even easier to mess them up if you don’t care enough!

These are ours, so what’s yours?   Please do add a comment to the blog to add your own.  We’d love to encourage some friendly debate and hear your own thoughts!

    Definitely feeling the point about dates not looking like their photo! No need to lie people, if you ain’t honest you just wasting time!
