    I hate it, I even stay away from potential friends who swear too much. It just sounds so ugly.

    If I'm ranting about something or watching sports(or a combination of the two) I find it unavoidable to swear.

    Words like "damn!" and "bloody!" just don't cut it when you're venting.

    If it's excessive then it is somewhat of a turnoff but if they just swear because it's natural to them in their everyday speak then it's fine

    Well being Irish, swearing is just a normal part of mine and everyone elses vocabulary. Maybe it's different in Britain? Swearing's pretty normal so the answer is no, i do not get turned off by swearing.
    I'm Irish too, it's normal for us! But when I moved to uni in scotland, my flatmates were stunned by how casual I would throw a swear in. I don't swear as much at uni as I do at home.
