13 Women Get Honest About What They Find Unattractive In Men

Written by Niharika Nayak

Social media is a great place to share information and opinions on the internet. One such platform is Reddit, where users can anonymously post opinions and other data. It’s also a platform that has threads where one can engage in constructive criticism with the original posters. More than twenty women decided to get honest about what they found unattractive in men on one such thread. Of course, we aren’t trying to make anybody feel bad, but there are simply some women’s opinions (or maybe even men) on the internet. So here are thirteen anonymous responses to what women find unattractive in men:

1. Lack Of Hygiene

“Something that has to be the biggest turn-off for me, if I’m being frank. I just feel like adults need to make it a point to stay as hygienic as possible. You’ve lived on this planet long enough, right? I’ve thankfully not had the pleasure (sarcasm) of interacting with too many unhygienic men, but it’s something that should be a basic rule.”

2. Being Arrogant

“Arrogance is not a virtue. A dude being arrogant or rude towards me totally puts me off and will instantly earn them a red flag in my books. I think everyone should be kind in all situations, and it’s better to keep your cool than throw rude words around and act all high and mighty.”

3. Being Unnecessarily Aggressive

“I don’t understand why some guys like to be unnecessarily aggressive. It genuinely is such immature behavior and does not look good in anybody’s books. Save the aggression for when you’re challenging your friends to a video game!”

4. Mocking Dudes Who Show Emotion

“It’s not cute to make fun of others. If you’re above the age of 18 and are still going around teasing or bullying other men over something as minuscule as showing emotions, then you clearly lack maturity. Hate to be harsh, but that’s the bitter truth of it.”

5. Being Nice To Whom They Find Attractive And Rude To Others

“Just because she isn’t your cup of tea does not mean that you have to be rude to her. I’ve dealt with so many men who were rude to women just because they weren’t conventionally attractive. Some in high school went so far as to bully and pick on them just because they didn’t think they were cute. Hate dudes who behave that way.”

6. Not Handling Rejection

“If I say no doesn’t mean you have to be super rude to me afterward. And dear men who do this, please learn to take no for an answer the first time around. Your favorite Bollywood hero may like to do things that way, but that doesn’t mean that you should copy him.”

7. Not Taking Care Of Themselves

“Self-care is very important. If you are someone who refuses to take care of yourself mentally and physically, you will never be happy with yourself. Save some time to indulge in some of your favorite activities every now and then. Give yoga a try. Just relax and unwind every now and then.”

8. Any Cruelty Towards Animals

via GIPHY

“Cruelty to animals is no Bueno. If there is one thing that I cannot tolerate, it’s a guy being an absolute jerk to innocent animals. If you’re someone who enjoys hurting or teasing animals, then you and I can never be friends, let alone date.”

9. Being Dishonest Or Disloyal

via GIPHY

“Being a disloyal person after you reach a certain age is simply ridiculous. You need to get your priorities in check if you are someone who is a compulsive liar or a consistent cheater. Your tricks will only work for a short while before you drive away plenty of people around you.”

10. Not Apologizing Genuinely

via GIPHY

“If you mumble your apologies, don’t look me in the eye when you apologize or repeat the same behavior multiple times, then I know that your apology was not genuine. It’s okay to feel embarrassed or sad about being wrong, but what’s not okay is being rude and not apologizing.”

11. Rejecting All Things Feminine As A Way To Prove Their Manhood

via GIPHY

“Look, just because you’re wearing pink doesn’t mean that you are feminine or gay or any other ridiculous stereotype that gets thrown around. Rejecting all things feminine is really ridiculous, and we don’t understand why you feel like anything feminine is embarrassing. Rock that baby pink polo; I bet it will end up being your color.”

12. Constantly Flexing Their Wealth

via GIPHY

“Okay, we get that you are rich and were born out of generational wealth. Do you have anything else to offer besides money? Like a personality, maybe? It’s really ridiculous how many dudes out there think that flexing their wealth will help them land a girl. This just gives into the stereotypes that women already have to deal with.”

13. Refusing To See Women As Equals

via GIPHY

“Not seeing women as equals is the biggest red flag I can find in a man. How will I ever have a healthy relationship if my partner refuses to see me as an equal to him? We both have jobs and can provide for ourselves, so I don’t see a reason why some men cannot fathom me as an equal.”

And there you have it. At the same time, we have to make a note that most of these characteristics are unattractive in all humans regardless of gender or orientation. Do let us know if you agree with the opinions of these anonymous social media users in the comment section below.
