Dating tip! If you don't floss your teeth people who do are not going to want to kiss you.😁

And how do you know this?


This triggers me. Don't shove your flossist point of view in my mouth. Oppression is wrong.

@pepperjones I kinda feel triggered too, but for other reasons that I can't talk about right now.


Good body hygiene including dental, is a must for me and is certainly a deal breaker.

@pepperjones Yes. It doesn't have to be the covered in artificial fragrances either. There is nothing sexier than the smell of a nice clean body. smile002.gif


I prefer to suck bits of food from between my teeth right at the table after a meal.
No good?

@valerina Depends on what she ate.


So true! also, the time you spend brushing is key, two full minutes .. teeth are the first thing I notice, being that I'm a dental assistant .. the mouth can be a sickening place ?

I congratulate you on your ability to do a job I never could.


How would you know? I drink enough vodka that I'm pretty sure my gum are sterile and my live is pickled.

Thats fucking a great response. smile001.gif

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?

It goes without saying!


Floss, or not , bad teeth or breath, will likely keep me from getting close.

@pepperjones I wish I could say that!


Goes out in date with Pepper.

I see your big on flossing.

Yes I am.

Pulls out dentures and floss. Hands them to her.

Knock yourself out.

"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."

American Dental Society


Agreed. I won't kiss a girl if she smokes or chews tobacco. Yuuuck!

"I don't smoke, I don't chew, I don't go with guys that do" - Geewhillikers I'm OLD to remember that one! smile007.gif

Two additional words: Minty. Fresh. Just saying...

SonofMax Level 7 July 13, 2018

Just plain excellent advice!

SonofMax Level 7 July 13, 2018

How about if you show up smoking a really GOOD cigar? smile009.gif

Dealbreaker, dude. "GOOD" is in the eye - or the mouth - of the beholder! smile002.gif

only if you share the cigar...I love the smell of a good cigar...each to their own...

If I was looking for a partner, you'd be at the top of the list!!

Personal hygiene is a good thing, flossing and brushed teeth are a plus few times a day, plus a shower lols


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.


yes brushing isn't enough. You could brush all day long, but if you've got something stuck it's going to rot in there. shudders

@pepperjones I wish I could say 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!

@pepperjones Thank you? Poor dental hygiene is a red flag I won't ignore again!


Smoking of any kind, including weed. Not scrubbing your tongue. It’s the little things that push me off

If you have plaque built up, go get a dental cleaning, it’s not expensive and only take about 90 minutes if it’s really bad.

Seajay88 Level 4 July 13, 2018

@pepperjones for some you could say asking is the same as pulling teeth.

@pepperjones β€œGum here and give me a smooch” ?


You're really making an assumption on what other people do or don't like

GwenC Level 7 July 12, 2018

I guess it’s good I floss.

Gatovicolo Level 7 July 12, 2018

I think so too.


Does this come up? Goodness.

zeuser Level 8 July 12, 2018

100% true


(Insert "butt-kissing" joke here)
