    I don't have a problem with it - I go out with drinkers and people who have :eek: taken drugs before - so there isn't much difference to me.

    Smokers are more attractive because you know in most cases they are going to be more interesting people. Unfortunately I'm going out with one of you unnecassarily passionate anti-smokers. I can get away with the occasional cigarette when she's not looking and she's never noticed so it can't be as bad (smell wise etc) as she reckons.

    I hate smoking but my ex smoked and it really didn't bother me - he was always very careful about not smoking around me, always chewed gum, and somehow his hair and clothes never smelt of smoke. I think if you like someone enough, it isn't a big enough reason to not go out with them.

    Personally, as a non-smoker i would find having a smoker boyfriend disgusting. The smell and the yellowing and taste ... urgghhh.

    I couldn't stand it - non-smokers for me only.

    What about you guys? Do any of you non-smokers go out with smokers and find it ok?

    Bit shallow, but then I wouldn't go out with someone fat, ugly or stupid. Not going out with smokers cuts out way too much of the population and it's not something I'd ever consider as a factor in a relationship.

    and geez guys - what makes you think we all have yellow teeth and fingers? I sure don't and I make sure I also get a haircut, wash my face and clip my toenails etc! Hygiene does not fly out the window the minute you start smoking! Methinks someone has been reading a little much of "The Schoolkids Guide to Bad and Norty Things you Shoudn't Try" - the type of book where if someone offers you a ciggie you should reply with something SUPER COOL and WITTY like "No thanks, i 'd rather have a fish milkshake" and then see how often you get beat up behing the bike shed

    How on earth does being a smoker make you more interesting? Surely it just makes you more stupid. :rolleyes:

    And it seems all smokers just stink! It's disgusting - I'm not saying 'you don't was your hair or cut your toe nails!!'

    People who smoke aren't stupid! You think Winston Churchill, Goerge Orwell and Albert Einstein were stupid? You get stupid smokers and non-smokers obviously.

    And the point Laika's trying to make which I think you misunderstood was that the sort of person to try smoking is more likely to be an interesting person, which is true in a lot of cases.

    I'm a smoker, but my last boyfriend didn't smoke - he didn't really like it and wanted me to quit, but he obviously wasn't too bothered about it since we were together for a year and a half.

    Most of my non-smoking friends don't seem too bothered about going out with smokers either.

    Those examples are irrelevant - when these people smoked they didn't know about the harm smoking would do to them. While of course you do get stupid smokers and non-smokers, it is rather daft in this day and age, with all the health warnings that there are, to do something that everyone knows will kill you.

    I'm really glad you used an increased sized font there. It really does reflect your wit. Score.

    As for smokers/non-smokers, I don't mind but would avoid any non-smoker who complained about smoking. I try to be a considerate smoker - for example, I try to avoid others being subjected to the smoke - but people who come and point out that "Smoking Kills" is written in big letters on my packet are going to get burnt. Similarly, "Why do you smoke?" and "Don't you care about cancer/lung disease/my potential cancer/my potential lung disease" will just not fly.

    If people want to smoke it's their perogative. Personally though, I wouldn't date a serious smoker and that's my perogative

    Its remarkable how attractive some girls look until you see them with a fag in there mouth. I could never go out with a smoker, I just find the smell replulsive.
    i agree.

    and based on responses here if you want to maximise your chances in every way you can, not smoking would be useful

    The best thing about non smokers is that they seem to think the only benefit to smoking is to rebel against their parents or try and fit in.

    Newsflash: All smokers know they are harming their bodies. They don't smoke for attention, the truth is smoking makes you feel damn good. I think the kind of person who smokes isn't obsessed with their health but values getting a buzz from that nice morning cigarette is interesting. Personally I'm too scared of killing myself to be a full blown smoker, but I enjoy the occasional one, it's a great great feeling.

    I just can't stand the attitude of people who just totally reject smoking/ers for the damage to health but happily munch away on junk food and drink themselves to liver failure. Obviously smoking is very harmful, probably not comparable to those things but it's the attitude which is irritating, so superior.

    i completely agree with you about the whole superiority thing, but I find it interesting that you get a 'buzz' from smoking and find it a great feeling - do other people feel like this? im not criticising at all, i am a smoker myself but I find i get nothing from a cigarette apart from relief from the nicotine craving, and psychologically the relief from just holding it in my hand
