What Are Your Men's Grooming Dealbreakers?

What Are Your Men's Grooming Dealbreakers?

As long as a guy is clean, I'm a happy dater. But some of my friends feel differently. One friend can't deal with mustaches, and just yesterday another Sugar girl mentioned that seeing a comb fall out of a guy's pocket on their first date totally killed it for her. Other friends encourage (or, you know, book) hair appointments for their men — and they go. Do you have any grooming non-negotiables for the men in your life?

I agree with the long fingernails. I dont care if they're clean or not but they must be short. And I'd prefer it if he didn't manicure them either. That's just wierd.

bad teeth and breath, unruly body and facial hair, stinks-whether from body odor or bad cologne, doesn't keep up with his haircuts-i don't mind if there's length as long as it fits him, nasty feet and toenails, gross fingernails, overly manicured eyebrows, very bad skin, oh and if he looks overly groomed and spends more time getting ready than i do.

must have smooth face, chest, and back. no nasty man-scented crap. my man smells nice just by himself.

Stubborn body odor, or foot odor -- the type that still lingers after showering. If a man has this, it's a deal-breaker for me. I have an acute sense of smell, and I wouldn't be able to handle this.

Couldn't care less! Clean, I guess, but I'd say the same for my friends. However, I do get grossed out by guys who wax (eyebrows...) or shave down there. Life's too short to worry about that kind of stuff, and I appreciate when guys share my opinion on that. :)

I find buzz-cuts & poorly maintained facial hair completely repulsive. Coincidentally, my boyfriend has somewhat long hair (at least for most guys) & a perfectly trimmed & shaped beard.

The thought of a mustache horrifies me! Ew! I also hate long hair on a guy...there are a few guys who I don't mind it on (i.e. Josh Holloway), but mostly, I think it's gross.

long nails, too much cologne, smelling anything but fresh, having acne and not doing anything about it, shaving anywhere apart from the face, having split ends... i guess that's it.

I absolutely hate facial hair: no mustaches, beards, etc. Scruff is about all I can manage!

I agree with all the posters about being clean and well groomed finger/toe nails. Back hair would be a major turn off.

My man looks best when he is clean shaven...no stubble or a hint of it. Hair that is not too long, but not completely buzzed down. I would hate it if he takes longer to get ready than me. He has a bunch of hair...on his arms and legs, which I was never into but love now. Chest hair and back hair are such turn offs though, so thank God he doesn't have that!

Ew - gross things everyone's commenting on! hehe! I agree with the nails - must be short and clean. That's pretty much it. My husband is a very clean guy. He has a stubbly beard which I always beg him to shave (he was only ever clean-shaven ONCE in the 6 years we've been together) but he refuses. Oh well!

Long nails are gross, and I can't even talk about back hair! That is beyond disgusting and needs to be waxed or taken care of somehow! Yuck!

My husband becomes easily smelly. As long as he showers daily and has clean/short finger and toe nails, I'm happy. I love when he has a little stubble and he gets his hair cut pretty often.

Ear and nose hair is a pretty big one. Gotta keep it groomed.
