What turns you off about a woman?

Guys, what personality traits in a woman are a turnoff to you?

It is self-centered women for me. I hate it when I take a woman out on a date and all she does is talk about herself only. I went on date a couple weeks ago and the lady only talked about her career, her and what she was doing and where she was going in life. I felt like I was conducting a job interview. Not once did she ask me about myself or where I was from, or what my likes are, or try to get to know me. Very off-putting.

Re: What turns you off about a woman?

Smokes/Drugs (automatic no no for me, don't care how awesome she may be otherwise, I know this isn't a personality trait per se but could be the sign of an addictive personality)
Self Centered
High Maintenance
Poor sense of humor (wouldn't probably like me anyhow lol)
Used to be a man

I would say the above are pretty much killers. Some of the other things that might come to mind I would say are more individualistic (i.e. take on a case to case basis)

FYI @bandit.45 , the thread title just simply asks for turn offs but your OP puts it solely on personality traits. Not sure if you want to see if a mod can edit your Thread Title

If she went on a lot of dates, perhaps she got into a rhythm of talking about herself.
It was unusual that she didn't want to get to know about you, but then some men get offended when a woman on a date asks too many questions!

Noncommittal

Ask her anything, the answer is "It Depends" or "I dunno" or "Maybe" or any variation (or combination) of those.

Re: What turns you off about a woman?

I hate when a woman is so co-dependent that she lies about having commonalities just to get your attention; but any dishonesty is a big turnoff. I also can't stand overbearing/controlling women. The last big thing is women that don't put effort in preparing for a date. I figure if I'm going to shower, shave, trim the ear hair and ball beard, spray some decent cologne, and put on nice clothes then I can expect the same level of primping from her.

Landmines (for women or men).
Anyone where I feel that I have to be careful about what I say, or ask - where I worry that an innocent comment or question could cause them to become angry / upset.

Re: What turns you off about a woman?

Personality traits that don't sit right with me have really nothing to do with gender. People that catastrophize over the simplest thing... overly judgemental people... backbiters and gossipy people... brown nosers and those that are full of themselves are a few that come to mind.

It should be balanced conversation. Quid pro quo both ways.

But this particular date was not the only time that has happened. I've been on several dates where the woman just prattles off about all these awesome things she's doing, and all these awesome places shes going, and how great she is at her job, and all the awesome things she's done in the past and so on. I will smile and sit there and respond once in a while to be nice.

If a woman isn't interested in me I wish she would just say so, so I can forego the dessert and movie and just take her home.

Okay then lets expand that to all traits: personality, attitude, appearance, etc.

Re: What turns you off about a woman?

i ran into a similar type of thing when i was single.

i did the online dating thing, talked for a couple of weeks, then met for coffee. it went well, i thought.
she was a bit on the heavy side, but very pretty and smart.
we were together for a bout 2 hours, she showed interest, and i responded with interest and we agreed to meet again.

so i waited for her to call me, and a few days later she texted me to meet her at a club.

oh boy.....a date! i thought.

but no, i get there and it turns out there are like 3 other guys she invited like this was sort of a competition. the 'bachelorette'.

no bueno. that was the end of that. what are they thinking?
