Wonky teeth, bragging and terrible come ons are amongst the 5 things that we find the most unattractive when we meet someone new.
A new survey by iWhiteInstant of over 2,187 people found that a rubbish chat up line was the most off-putting thing when making first impressions with bad teeth and staring soullessly into your iPhone not far behind.
Here are the top five to try and avoid:
- A cheesy chat up line - 77%
- Imperfect teeth - 65%
- If they pay too much attention to their mobile - 64%
- Arrogance - 53%
- Lack of hygiene - 52%
Other turn-offs that didn't make the top five included not offering to pay for the first date, which one in three confessed that they judged their date for, and treating waitresses poorly which 35% of people were put off by.
But a good opinion once lost might not be lost forever. Over half of Britons admitted they had gone on to date someone who they had initially been turned off by.
So there's always a chance to change someone's mind (after you've brushed your teeth.)
