    Turn off. You'd become a complete prick in my eyes. Violence aint cool.
    Did you mean to use improper grammar?

    Bad English is a massive turn off, more so than someone who fights (I'm not gay but if it was a woman in that situation)

    Anyone that gets violent outside of the martial arts classroom or 'doju' or whatever its called becomes immediately unattractive. (Well, a bit).

    I went on a night out about three weeks ago and met my friend's ex who is 29. He'd had a bit too much to drink and as we were walking past a group of teenagers, he became convinced that he'd heard one lad 'mouthing off' and we spent about 15 minutes restraining him as he circled this 15 year old boy and even slapped the top of his head at one point. It was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen and it made me want to call the police. Don't end up like that.

    Sorry, I know it's a bit off topic but boys can be strange sometimes

    Seeing as most girls are saying that fighting is a turn off, is getting your head kicked in any better?

    I think the only girls it appeals to are the girls who are equally, if not better at martial art fighting.

    To me it's not being able to fight that's the issue. It's the fact that you've got into the situations where you've felt you had to.

    I don't now many people who have only ever got into a bust up when it was someone elses fault. In other words, it would suggest to me that you have initiated some kind of fight. And that is a turn off.

    I don't get it. Why does it turn women off that the man's defending himself?

    "once or twice to back up my friends" will make it look like your friends were the one in the fight and makes you look a good buddy too.
    No it won't. It just makes you look like you have idiotic friends and makes it look like you're part of some 'gang'.

    My sisters boyfriend gets in a few fights here and there, but only ever in self defence, my sister hates it, but to stereotype him a violent and stupid would be harsh, he's intelligent, creative and not really violent, he just knows how to fight.

    Yes, I meant to use it. Not that it's actually anything to do with this thread, anyway.

    And yes, I know it should be 'isn't'

    Defending himself is fine, looking for fights is not.

    Talking about grammar, you needed the imperfect subjunctive. Bad English is a massive turnoff, don't you agree?

    Yh I was going to finish the sentence off with 'If it was a woman in that situation instead of the guy posting it'. That however would be long so I left it.

    I mean most people would probably get what I put as it was meant to be informal. By bad English I don't mean spelling or even complete sentences. I mean grammar like 'it ain't' or 'you ain't', that's just annoying when they don't even know that it doesn't make sense.

    Edit:

    Wait a second what was wrong with what I put?

    'If it was a woman in that situation'

    That makes sense because I'm talking about the future not the past.

    If it was a woman in that situation, is me using my imagination to think about what I would do in a situation where it was a choice between the two things that I stated. So surely because I'm thinking about the future 'was' is acceptable in the context that I placed it in.

    Past would be 'were'.

    I'm so confused.

    Errr bad idea. That sounds like you love fighting so much that you won't turn down the opportunity to join a fight that isn't even yours.
