Dating tip! If you don't floss your teeth people who do are not going to want to kiss you.
Oh FFS, I can't believe there are guys here that are questioning this. I brush and floss after every meal if I can. I have floss in the car and the desk at work and in the wallet if I'm on a date. Don't be the guy with the broccoli between his front teeth to go along with the bad breath. What is so hard to understand?
"Flossing is perhaps even more important than brushing because it removes bacteria that are the precursors of plaque, which if left to fester will turn into tartar that cannot be removed by regular brushing or flossing. Tartar is what eventually causes the damage that leads to decay and tooth decay."

Before bed, I floss and brush my teeth, and when food gets caught between my teeth. I carry dental floss in my purse and day pack.
Through online dating, I met a man who never flossed. His breath stank of rotten meat.
"Can I ask you a personal question?" I asked. "How often do you floss your teeth?" Never, he said.
Although I handed him breath mints, it didn't help. Sitting side-by-side in a theater, I leaned away from his revolting mouth.
Ugh. Can't imagine kissing that.
Totally agree! My recent-ex bf brushed his teeth less and less the longer we were together. If he was trying to passive-aggressively push me away, he was successful. His breath got so bad that I refused to kiss him and the turn-off level was second only to his cheating on me (yes, he somehow still found other women to sleep with him!). He was proud of his tartar buildup the way only an immature boy can be. Fucking gross in more ways than one!
