Before my last breakup, I told myself that I wouldn't know what to do if I had to get back into the dating scene. Well, I was clearly wrong and, unfortunately, had to put that statement to the test. When I jumped back into dating, I realized that dating kind of sucks and there were so many things you never realized are turn offs, but are when you have to get back into it.
I'm already very particular about who I date. So when I had to jump back into the water, it especially difficult for me. To be honest, it's two full years later and I still get anxiety when I even think about dating. For me, men just don't understand that the things they do most of the times are really not attractive. Asking me to "send you a picture," is not a turn on; it's actually a huge turn off and probably will result in me not responding — ever. Another thing that is a total turn off is inviting someone over to their house on the first date. Sure, a home cooked meal is a cute gesture, but it can be a bit uncomfortable for a first date.
If you're not sure what things could be a turn off to someone you're interested in, these nine points could help you out.
