By Heather

Just like with girls, there are tons of turn-offs for guys that we girls might not know about! Do you think that being perfumed up and talking about your ex all of the time are attractive? These could be huge turn-offs for guys that you might not even know about! So girls, you ready to explore some of the top turn-offs for guys that you might not be aware of until now!

1 Long Fingernails

person,interaction,love,long,nails., While you might think that long, long fingernails are something that are super attractive, it is actually one of the hugest turn-offs for guys. They like natural and if you are going to have fingernails that are super long, it can actually hurt them if they are making out with you. So girls, keep it short and simple and don't over-do the nails!

Billy it's true, long nails are gross lookin, I prefer g...

2 Too 'Perfumey'

smell,good,motherfucker., While you might love the smell of your perfume and your guy might like it in a light form, if you pile on spray after spray and he smells just like it when he leaves your house, that might not be the best thing. Smelling good is one thing ladies, but spraying yourself so that the scent embeds itself into your skin isn't. Keep it light girls and your guy will totally appreciate it! See, I bet this is one turn-off for guys that you didn't know!

Billy this doesn't bother me, girls perfume is really ni...

3 Too Desperate

mouth,finger,Why,don't,you, Another turn-off for guys that they absolutely hate is a girl that seems too desperate. If you are constantly clinging to him and constantly seeming that you can't live without your guy, it is too much. A guy likes a girl that is independent and that only depends on him when she really needs help. Remember that, girls, when you are clinging too hard to your man!

4 Playing Dumb

Netflix,hair,face,nose,person, You might think that it's cute to play dumb a lot of the time, guys actually like girls that have opinions and that are smart. If you know something girls, make sure that you speak up! This is one turn-off for guys that a lot of women don't take too seriously, but it works. Just be yourself, girls!

John Amen to that!...

5 Talk of Your Ex

hair,face,hairstyle,nose,head, Guys hate when a girl constantly talks about her ex. If you are still in love with your ex, it might not be a good idea to be with someone else. If you constantly have to talk about your ex, you might want to think about the reason why. This is one turn-off for guys that they absolutely hate!

6 Being 'Too Easy'

Naenae,hair,face,person,blond, Girls, this statement is not just about sex, it is about everything! Guys like to have someone that is interesting, someone that won't give away all of their secrets on the first date. You want to leave some mystery there and make sure that you are keeping the relationship interesting and fresh.

7 Overbearing

Homeprof,screenshot,SOME,PEOPLE,WOULD, Another huge turn-off for guys is all about being overbearing. A guy can make his own decision girls, just like you can make your own. You don't have to become his mother and take care of him. If you are too overbearing with a guy, it can make him feel resentful and all around turn the relationship sour.

8 Entitled

singer,newscaster,singing,21-1, Being entitled is another turn-off for guys that can create a lot of tension in a relationship. Girls, you aren't entitled to anything in your relationship, just like your boyfriend isn't entitled to anything. You want to do things for your boyfriend because you love him and you want him to do things because he loves you, not because you are entitled to it. So, girls, you've got to get off your high horse and treat him with the same respect he treats you.

9 Rude

RUDE, Finally, the last turn-off for guys we're going to talk about is attitude and rudeness! Guys don't like a girl that is rude to everyone around them and in general, has a bad attitude. I'm not saying that you have to be happy-happy all of the time and we all get bad days, but if your bad days outweigh the good ones, don't take it out on anyone.

Justin rude is a serious issue, if you can't even treat a...

10 Sending Mixed Signals

Don’t you hate it when you’re positive a guy likes you, but then he ignores you? Men hate mixed signals as much as we do. Try not to confuse him with your actions. There’s nothing wrong with being blunt. In fact, most men prefer when women are upfront about their desires.

Old red flag here, I hate games, I'm datin for real, i...

11 Playing Hard to Get

person,I'm,busy, It’s true that men like a challenge, but you shouldn’t make him work too much harder than he has to. If you like him and he likes you, what are you waiting for? You shouldn’t pass up the opportunity for a long lasting relationship, because you want the upper hand. Just go for it, and stop with the games.

John No ... please play hard to get. It saves me a lot ...

12 Gossiping

fashion,Let,ossip,get,our, If he hears you talk badly about another girl, you’re going to look bad. Even if what you’re saying is true, it can make you come across poorly. You don’t want him to mistake you for a bad person. You want him to see you for the lovely, amazing girl that you are.

13 Being Late

human action,person,woman,man,interaction, Men love what we look like when we emerge from the bathroom, but they loathe how long it takes us to get ready. However, as long as you know how long it takes you to look spectacular, you can plan your day around it. Give yourself enough time to prep before he arrives to pick you up.

Kent Can't stand chronically late people. ...

14 Being a Clone

Jass Records,CONFISED., Peer pressure is a dangerous thing that you shouldn’t give in to. It might seem like all of the girls are wearing heels and tiny black dresses, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do that as well. Guys like originality. No one wants to be with a girl who is the spitting image of every other girl out there. He wants someone special, so don’t be afraid to be yourself.

15 Not Offering to Pay

hair,human hair color,blond,hairstyle,brown hair, He picks up the check because it’s the gentlemanly thing to do. However, you should at least reach for your wallet. He might not want you to pay, but he’ll appreciate your offer.

Fred this is seriously irritatin, just because im the g...

16 Trying to Change Him

person,don't,like,change,don't, A man wants you to like him for who he is. If you decide to date him, but then try to change his personality or appearance, he’s going to feel like he’s not good enough for you. You’re only going to hurt his ego. If you don’t like him, then find a new man instead of trying to change the one you have.

17 Making Him Jealous

brand,JEALOUS,COULD,MURDER,YOU, Most of us are guilty of trying to make our boyfriend or crush jealous by talking to another guy. However, this could lead to disaster. You don’t want him to think that you’ve lost interest in him and that you’d rather be with someone else. How would you like it if he flirted with another girl in front of you? It’s never fun to watch.

Dekemce Really girls??...

18 Acting like a Nagging Nelly

When,did,you,turn,into, Guys have set ideas about what they consider nagging, but if they perceive it in you, many of them don't like it. It's better to have conversations than lectures, remember. It's frustrating for a girl when it seems like a guy isn't listening, and it's frustrating for him if he thinks she's nagging – that's why communication is so important.

19 Too Much Makeup

face,eyebrow,cheek,nose,lip, Even though it's a women's choice to wear the amount of makeup she wants, men have an opinion on it – and they're entitled to a physical preference, as long as they don't make someone feel bad about it. When guys say they like a “natural look,” however, it's often because they don't know what concealer, bronzer, mascara, and highlighter can really do.

Matt Many guys prefer an actual natural look because we...

20 Pretending to Be Clumsy

leg,interaction,ACADEMY,AWARDS, In general, it's always better to avoid pretending to be someone or something that you're not. Being clumsy to get attention is a lot like dumbing yourself down – it reflects badly on you and it rarely works.

21 Acting Helpless

poster,illustration,I'm,damsel.,I'm, Well, yeah. In the same vein, you never need to make yourself seem incapable of something to get a guy to like you. The damsel-in-distress trope is tired – and unnecessary.

22 Body Odor

color,performance art,music,screenshot,special effects, Well, that makes sense. That's usually a turn off for women, too. In general, it's a good idea to smell good, even if you don't use artificial fragrances. And remember – don't smell “too perfumey”!

23 Never Complimenting Him

photography,beauty,fashion,brown hair,supermodel, Guys like compliments, too. One should never seek validation without returning it somehow, you know? Women feel unappreciated, unnoticed, and even unloved when the people in their life don't notice and compliment certain things. Men feel the same way.

John I hate compliments. Or other bald-faced lies peopl...

24 Making Plans for Him

human action,physical fitness,'re,gonna,have, It's rude for any person to make plans for someone else without checking first. A good rule of thumb is to avoid anything you wouldn't enjoy having done to you. The golden rule often comes in handy, huh?

25 Being Indecisive

person,human positions,child,toddler,play, If you can never choose something, that … well, that can get annoying. It's a turn off when anyone does it, though, the gender doesn't matter. Am I right?

So girls, now that you know all of the turn-offs for guys! Makes it a little easier to know what to look for when you're turning a guy off right? So girls, what other turn-offs for guys do you know about?
