4. "I'm all about the scruff so I'd have to go with bad breath, terrible body odor, yellow teeth, and bad nails (for both toes and fingers). They're simple, easy things to maintain. Plus, men's cologne and deodorant smells orgasmic, why wouldn't you want to wear it." - Christina S. 

5. "I might have to say really long nose hair. I don't want to say it's a complete deal breaker but it's really distracting on a date, like that Tide commercial with the talking stain. I'm pretty sure you don't want my takeaway from the date being "I have no idea what he said because I was so grossed out with the long nose hair." - Sarah K.
