His Biggest Turnoffs

 
 
   

It may be tough for you to think of your dude's dwelling as anything more than a showplace for his autographed sports memorabilia. But ladies, don't assume you can walk in and take over just because of his low-key attitude. A man's home is his castle. So beware of these four faux pas in his pad.

  • Claiming Closet Space

    It's okay to stash emergency tampons in your man's medicine cabinet. But if you start staking out his closet, he'll feel like it's a full-scale space invasion. Take it from Reggie,* 29: "The commute to my girl's office is easier for her from my apartment, so she started staying over during the week," he explains. "The arrangement was cool until she began to keep more and more stuff at my place. Before I knew it, her dry cleaning was taking up half my closet. I said she could leave a few things, not move in!"
  • Cleaning House

    There's nothing wrong with a lady's touch on the domestic front. Hell, no guy wants to live in a pigsty. But make his bed, empty the dishwasher, and fold his laundry and you may begin to remind him of Mom. Just ask Alessandro, 31: "I dated a girl who straightened my apartment every time she came over," he says. "The day she headed toward my bedroom with a vacuum and dust rag, I had flashbacks of my mother pulling my porn stash from underneath my unmade bed when I was 15. Not a good visual!" Cleaning caveat: If you make the mess, by all means, tidy up (French-maid costume is entirely optional).
  • Touching His Toiletries

    Watching contestants devour cow eyeballs on Fear Factor may not gross him out, but having you use his toothbrush? Nasty! "I'm sorry, but there's nothing sexy about swapping plaque," rants Paul, 28. Simon, 27, has another pet peeve: "My ex used to shave her legs with my razor," he says. "It dulled the blade, and I'd nick my face." Other no-nos: Swigging his mouthwash from the bottle, using his nail clippers to cut the tags off a new shirt, leaving hair in his comb...on the soap...in the shower drain.
  • Ruling the Remote

    Guys are more than willing to hand over the reins when it comes to many things. For instance, feel free to take control in the sack. But c'mon, don't seize the remote and subject us to America's Next Top Model. "I need to control the clicker," admits Clyde, 26. "My feeling is that if you let a girl dictate what you watch on television, the next thing you know, she'll be choosing your outfits and trying to talk you into window treatments."
  • Smoking (cigarettes, cigars, et al.)

    It’s disgusting. Who wants to have a woman smelling like a bar. Not to mention the shit kills you. I can’t be turned on by a woman not smart enough to know that fire is bad. I don’t care if you’re Halle Berry, buck naked, drenched in honey - if you’re a smoker, I’m not turned on….that much. LOL I may make an exception for Halle.
  • Mad makeup.

    What do you REALLY look like? Not saying makeup doesn’t enhance some people’s beauty, but too much is, well, too much. If I wanna kiss you, I wanna kiss you and not be worried about smudgin’ your precious lipstick.
  • Underarm hair

    One word: Illllllll. I don’t even have underarm hair. This ain’t the 60s. Get the clippers and fade your pits. PLEASE!

  • Panty-waist

    Why is it that women wear these short shirts that reveal their thongs and ass cracks? I’m all for a little ass, but there’s a time and a place for all that. Tuck ya draws in, girl.
  • B.O. (Body Odor)

    A dude smelling I can somewhat understand cause we play ball, etc. But I’ve known a few chicks with BO. It’s not a good look at all. No further explanation needed.
  • Bad breath

    We all suffer from it every now and again, but just be aware of it. Walk with gum. Listerine strips. Altoids. Something. And if I offer you some gum, take it. Hint, Hint…
