15 Surprising Things Guys Find Unattractive

September 22, 2019

Brainy Dose Presents: 15 Surprising Things Guys Find Unattractive Just like guys, girls do everything in their
power to get the attention of the opposite gender. Surprisingly, some of their actions and behaviors
can actually have the opposite effect! In fact, girls may not even realize that they
do certain things that drive men away, when all they’re really trying to do is draw
guys toward them. Here are some surprising things guys find
unattractive. So, if you’re a girl, you should take note
of the following. Number 1 – Wearing Too Much Makeup Girls may think that loading up on foundation,
concealer, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and blush makes them look their
most attractive, but no one really loves the look of layers of makeup that can be scraped
off like frosting on cake… A face that is two shades lighter (or darker)
than the rest of the body, with spidery lashes, goopy lips, and slashes of blush and bronzer,
just isn’t a good look on anyone. Number 2 – Having Overly Styled Hair While girls may spend a lot of time (and money)
trying to perfect their hair styles, it turns out that men aren’t attracted to overly done
and processed hair. In fact, most men are drawn to women with
shiny, full, healthy-looking hair – as opposed to hair that’s been overly styled and manipulated. Specifically, loose curls and wavy hair are
considered more appealing to men than excessively flat-ironed slick-straight hair and complex
hairstyles. Number 3 – Sharp Long Nails Elaborate manicures with extra-long lengths
have become the norm, and fake nails are all the rage – but it shouldn’t surprise anyone
that guys aren’t really fans. While girls may feel powerful and badass with
some sharp talons on their tips, they just look like weapons to guys. Can you imagine a hand with those nails getting
all up in your intimate areas? It’s not a pretty picture. Additionally, long nails can signify a girl
who’s a little too high-maintenance – those claws can make it really challenging to do
everyday things. Number 4 – Wearing Too Much Perfume A lot of marketing goes into making women
feel like they need to buy a certain perfume in order to be sexy and desirable. Since celebrities have entered the industry,
the push has become even stronger. Yeah, we all hate people who smell horrible
and have a bad body odor, but spraying on too much perfume is almost the same. Perfume is created to help express individuality,
and while smelling a little sweet is a good thing, there’s really no need to drown in
the stuff. It turns out that men don’t like it when
a woman wears too much perfume. Number 5 – Being Excessively Confident High self-esteem is a quality that men find
very attractive in women. But it’s important to understand that there’s
a fine line between being confident and being conceited. And while girls should definitely believe
in themselves, be proud of their accomplishments, and be happy about what they have to offer,
they should also keep in mind that showing off is a major turn off. In fact, research has shown that people who
boast about themselves, don’t even recognize the full extent of the negative response they
receive from others! The bottom line is, having a huge ego and
acting like a narcissist is a major turn off. Number 6 – Being A Gossiper It can seem fun for a girl to share with a
guy: all the latest rumors, scandals, and stories involving the lives of friends, family,
and coworkers – but surprisingly, guys find this kind of gossip, a major turn off. As a matter of fact, many people with a poor
self-image, rely on gossip to make themselves feel better about their own lives. They choose to talk about the failures and
scandalous behaviors of others, as a way to give themselves a boost. Giving guys the lowdown on other people’s
sleazy deeds, actually makes girls come across as having low self-esteem. Number 7 – Clingy Behavior As humans, there’s a tug between being autonomous
and bonding with others. But even if you’re in a happy and mutually
supportive relationship, sometimes you may need a little alone time. This can be more the case for some people
than others – but generally, guys want some space to breathe from time to time – and they
find it unattractive when a girl demands that he stay by her side 24/7. Now, wanting time apart is not necessarily
a reflection on how a guy feels about his girl. Of course, every guy likes to feel wanted
– but it can be exhausting when his partner is excessively needy, and can’t find any way
to occupy herself when he’s not around. Number 8 – Attention Seekers Girls, you probably have someone like this
on your Instagram or Facebook, and she drives you nuts – so you can kind of see where guys
are coming from. No one likes a person who is vying for attention
so transparently; and nothing makes a guy back away faster than seeing a woman who is
more interested in “looking cool” than actually enjoying life. Not to mention, this would only make him think
that he’s just another Instagram prop. Number 9 – Starving Themselves When going out, especially on a first date
– girls put a lot of thought into what they pick from the menu. They may be craving a big, juicy steak, or
a burger with fries – but instead, opt for a salad. Maybe they want to look like they take good
care of themselves, or maybe they genuinely are trying to lose weight. Perhaps they’re just budget-conscious, and
don’t want to pick a big ticket item. It’s one thing if this is how a girl regularly
eats and she is satisfied with her meal. But it’s another, if she starts picking fries
from the guy’s plate, or refuses to eat anything at all. This makes a girl seem like she’s not being
authentic. Not to mention, guys really don’t want a girl
to order something she doesn’t even want, only to end up eating half his meal! Number 10 – Badmouthing Their Ex Girls may think that badmouthing their ex
around a new guy is a good idea, but this kind of negative behavior actually makes them
look bad. A girl’s intention may be to show that she’s
totally over her ex, and to reassure the new guy that he has nothing to worry about. However, constantly criticizing ex-partners
isn’t attractive. After all, not only does this type of behavior
make a girl come across as spiteful and immature, but her unrelenting fixation on her ex makes
it seem as though she’s still harboring feelings for him. Number 11 – Being Catty To Other Girls It’s important that you speak your mind and
that you stand up for yourself if you are ever in a situation that makes you feel marginalized. That being said, it can be really unattractive
when a girl seems addicted to drama and goes out of her way to be mean to others. There’s a big difference between acting immaturely
vs emotionally secure in charge of a situation – and guys will definitely take notice. Number 12 – Being A Party Girl Being the kind of girl who is down for whatever,
goes out non-stop, and is always looking for a good time is not the way to attract a guy. In fact, most guys try to stay away from party
girls because these girls have a tendency to act recklessly, make poor decisions, and
put themselves and others in uncomfortable and potentially harmful situations. Guys are certainly interested in girls who
are outgoing, and who like to have fun – but they will draw the line when it comes to girls
who throw caution to the wind and are always looking to party hard. Number 13 -Playing Hard To Get Playing hard to get is an easy way to strike
out with a guy. While it’s true that men are drawn to women
who are assertive individuals, it’s important to recognize that there’s a fine line between
being independent and being unavailable. Playing games can make a girl seem highly
immature and can give off the impression that she’s not yet ready, willing, or interested
in getting to know a guy on a deeper and more meaningful level. And while she may assume that acting detached
and aloof increases her allure, she’s actually coming across as uninterested, flaky, and
just plain annoying. Number 14 – Smoking Particularly for a non-smoker, a huge component
of this turn-off is the obvious health issues that arise – let’s be real: a hacking
smoker’s cough doesn’t exactly scream ‘sexy.’ But there are a lot of physical drawbacks
from this nicotine addiction as well – such as: • Yellow teeth, nails, and fingertips
• stinky breath, hair, and clothes • and premature wrinkles and age spots Sorry smokers, this nasty habit definitely
won’t win you any points. Number 15 – Getting Extreme Makeovers Guys find it unattractive when a girl seems
obsessed with her perceived imperfections. Talking about plastic surgery, cycling through
different styles, and crash dieting in an attempt to lose weight can make girls seem
insecure – which is a real turn-off. If a guy likes a girl for the right reasons,
he’s surely not going to want her to suddenly undergo an extreme makeover, and won’t want
her to reinvent herself in an attempt to win him over. There you have it – these are some things
that men find unattractive in women. What do you think? Girls, which of these things surprised you

    If women can just go back to messy pony tails, Keds and Daisy Dukes that would solve 50% of their issues attracting men.

    I mean… us guys stopped the slick pomade hair, chain/turtleneck sweater, axe body spray you females… maybe you should return the favor and get rid of the Yenta jewelry, 10mm thick foundation and sharpie eyebrows for us?? It's only fair. We like natural looking women. I know you don't believe me (or that I'm freaking "man-splaining" it…whatever that means), but it's a factual statement.

    Giving my all to a guy before marriage is a deal breaker. A good guy who wants something serious with a woman. A woman who has all the checks and holds off is not a reason to dump her. If he knows a good thing when he sees her and drops her because of that one thing, he is a fool. Sorry guys that's just how I feel. ๐Ÿ˜Š
