You’re Smoking Hot! Oh, Wait… You’re Actually Smoking?
Men and women spend countless hours getting ready before they go out in an attempt to attract the opposite sex. They spend money dying their hair, spend their time trying on clothes, and spend nights watching Entertainment Tonight just to see what the hottest in Hollywood are wearing. When it comes to looking attractive, there’s no end to what people are willing to do. But without even knowing it, those same people who spend their time trying to look good can do only one thing to turn off the people they’re trying to attract– They smoke.
In a survey by Cosmopolitan magazine, 70% of women said that they preferred to date a guy that didn’t smoke, and over 35% of them said that they wouldn’t even consider dating a man who smokes. As high as those statistics seem, an even wilder 13% of women who smoke themselves said they wouldn’t want to date a guy who smoked!
For women, a lot of their natural attraction to men stems from their ability to care for them. Even if they’re just looking for a quick hookup, they still instinctively want to be with a man who’s a healthy and can protect her if need be. Women are programmed to seek out guys who would make good baby daddies, so sticking a cigarette in your mouth is the first step to cock blocking yourself.
But it’s not just women that don’t want to date smokers, it’s men as well. When men are looking to meet singles, they have natural instincts on who to look for, just as women do. But instead of seeking the protector, they subconsciously look for someone their mother would approve of. Since most kids are brought up with their parents telling them that smoking is bad, guys are instantly less attracted to women who smoke, knowing that they won’t pass their most important test– Bring them home to meet mom.
If you’re trying to attract people, you should start by making sure you’re not turning them off. Put out the cigarette to save your health and your dating life!
