Dating Pet Peeves: Where Are All the Non-Stinky Men?

I’ve never been on a date with a smelly boy, but perhaps I should consider myself lucky.

The online dating site Zoosk published a survey this week in honor of National Pet Peeve Week (yep, there’s a week for that!) and found that women’s most common dating pet peeve is “when my date is smelly.” In fact, 45 percent of women put this down as their biggest dating pet peeve.

What?!? I thought smelly dates were a thing from the movies or something, but not something that happened in real life. Slightly bewildered by this finding, I decided to ask the Women's Health Facebook fans about their own dating pet peeves. Lo and behold, an overwhelming number of women wrote about smells, bad breath, and BO…

"Guys who don't know what personal hygiene is!! Please brush your teeth, bathe, and wear deodorant!" - Shayanne Charles

"His bad scent. Bad smell = total date disaster." - Jacqueline ELizabeth

"You're at dinner, everything is going well...until the guy orders EXTRA onions with his meal." - Kendra Slaughter

"It's not just the not brushing... FLOSS your teeth people." - Alicia Camacho Lawlor

"It's a shame how many people wrote "bad breath." And it's even sadder that men don't think about their breath before a first date. C'mon now, boys, really?!!!" - Mindy Lee

You said it, Mindy Lee!
