Your bad habits

Tuesday, 30 October 2012

Your bad habitsYou’re just a guy, we understand. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be aware of those habits that could be ruining your appearance and turning your girl off! We’ve round up a few bad habits, and if you can relate to any of these, you may want to stop.

Bad Habit #1: Nail biting

Nails bitten to the bone are a no-no! And so are nails that are longer than ours. We don’t expect you to visit the salon every week for a manicure, but decently groomed nails (at an appropriate length) won’t go unnoticed. You know what they say about a guy with good-looking hands…

Bad Habit #2: Hogging the mirror

Yes, we love it when you look good. But spending 45 to 60 minutes (longer than some girls) in front of the mirror styling your hair, we don’t love. And if you are going to use a hair straightener, maybe seek advise from your sister on HOW straight you should really go.

Bad Habit #3: Dry shaving

Besides it being rather painful and an unpleasant experience for you, razor burn [], bumps and ingrown hairs can turn any girl off. Don’t distract her with the artwork you’ve created on your face as a result of dry shaving. Add some product; your skin and your girl will thank you.

Bad Habit #4: Speedos

While we have no problem with speedos in the gym pool, only if you’re Brad Pitt’s doppelganger should you strut your speedo on the beach this summer. Unless it is a must (and we mean an absolute must), rather wear a funky pair of board shorts. We don’t want to know the size of your package until after the first few dates.

Ladies, are there any bad habits that you’ve come across? Let us know below…
