    What turns you off a guy?

    I'd imagine a guy that crys a lot and arrogance would turn females off.

    The clingy, jealous "I am your man"-type of guy who keeps calling every 5 minutes to check where you are, who you're with and what you're doing. If you're honest and tell him you're with a male friend, he'll become angry/pissed/pmsing for not asking for his 'permission'. If you don't tell him, the relationship is still ******. Buah.

    Physical appearance/features/etc I dislike: Blonde hair. Brown eyes. Lack of height. No taste in clothing. Too short of hair. Too long of hair. Small eyes. Lack of proportionality. Narrow shoulders. Cheap cologne. Crooked teeth. Too narrow a face. Upturned nose (even slightly). Biting one's lip. Too thin eyebrows. Too thin in general. Too fat in general. Worker's hands. Thin hair. Straight hair. No bum. Ugly smile. Too fat lips. Eyes too close together. Eyes too far apart. Once again, lack of proportionality. Features that age badly. Features that look distinctly unrefined. Features I associate with people I don't like. Lack of sex appeal. Most important in bold and/or underlined.

    Thing I find hot appearance-wise/physically/etc.: Broad shoulders. Height 5'11" - 6'11". Brown slightly wavy hair. Green eyes. A certain stance that indicates dominance. A good smile. A mid-range tonality in voice coupled with certain accents. A slower blink than average. Blue eyes only with darker brown almost black hair. Barely there stubble reminiscent of an overgrown 5 o'clock shadow. Slightly longer unshaven stubble reminiscent of an artist. Just shaved that highlights the physical contours and proportionality of the face. The smell of expensive cologne.

    Thing I don't tolerate personality-wise: Lack of confidence. Stupidity. Shyness.

    Things I find attractive personality-wise in public and somewhat in private but in a slightly different way: Arrogance. Confidence. Wit. Intelligence. Force of character. Dominance. Sex appeal. Pride. Rhett Butler?

    Things I find attractive personality-wise in private: Kindness. Wisdom. Combination of maturity and playfulness. Depth. Strong-willed. Sex appeal. Openness. Sense of humor. Someone who doesn't become quiet to punish the other person.

    I have less standards in personality since that changes very much with overall package. I like certain traits in tandem with one another while they might be annoying separately. There are certain staples, but even they can be shifted depending on personality.

    Physically, well, I know what sort of man I get turned on by and am attracted by thus I suppose that doesn't significantly change.

    Already done.

    And I've never had to sacrifice my standards as if you really look at them there is quite a lot of things I expressly dislike but not that many things I demand! :p:

    P.S.
    To be honest, I think it's easier when girls know exactly what they want or at least what they don't want. Because most of the time, they haven't a ******* clue.

    Or they could find that someone who has none of the qualities they thought they wanted is exactly what they needed.

    No, but knowing exactly what one doesn't want is useful. If you know that you can't stand x why not make a point of avoiding it? I'm by no means advocating a stance that is unbendable. I think I make a point in the original post in saying that personality is much harder to define due to the amount of variation. The only thing that I keep hard and fast on are things I dislike.

    And on the physical aspect - I could never be with someone who I didn't find sexually attractive. And I think it is no surprise that some people are more or less appearance-driven sexually. That doesn't make that person unable to appreciate personality or think that personality is unimportant. Frankly, I would want a guy to appreciate me on a raw, instinctual sexual and physical level and on an intellectual and emotional level. I am not one of those people who grows to find someone attractive. I am someone who wants someone at first sight on a physical level and then my attraction is amplified by their personality. I think it's important to know what kind of person you are on these issues.

    Don't like guys that are really possessive either, and won't let you go out and do your own thing

    That's like my exact preferences in a woman like everything you don't like in a guy is what I don't like in a woman. It's not fussy at all.

    Guys that only want sex, and only talk about how much they want to shag you when you've never met them before. That really pisses me off.
