10 Honest Reasons Men Have Turned Down Women 

Her Being Married or in a Relationship

We're not love and relationship experts, but we know this. Some guys don't want to star in their own soap drama. Many guys avoid that operatic maze if a lady is happily engaged or in a convoluted love triangle. 

Having a Mean or Disagreeable Personality

Imagine a human-sized thundercloud that walks and talks. Nobody wants an annoying date. It's not that guys seek a bossy woman, but life is too short for negativity. 

Lack of Interest

Guys don't always feel it. They don't always want to be with women. Imagine: just because you like cookies doesn't mean you have to consume the whole jar.

Too Much Makeup

Makeup boosts confidence, but some guys may feel like they're dating a Picasso. It's personal preference, not criticizing women for their makeup choices.


We all know the continuous search for compatibility. Despite efforts, two people don't always fit. Have you tried mixing a disco ball and a cowboy hat? Cool individually, not together.

Love and Respect for Their Partner

Many believe men solely think with their... Quite the contrary! Many men are loyal and would never hurt their partners. It bothers them when some women think all men cheat.


Racists are worst. Some males hate racist women. A contributor describes an odd meeting with a "white trash." "I totally couldn't understand why she said that about her race.


Nobody wants a self-centered partner. Selfishness or indifference can also turn men off. Respect, understanding, and care underpin good partnerships. 


It's entitlement that's problematic. Men may overlook women who expect special treatment or benefits without effort. Another says a woman he chatted to "was irritating and appeared entitled to my adoration. 

His Inadequacies

Sometimes it's not you. It's kind of you, but not in the manner you think. Insecure guys may reject women's advances. The rejected individual isn't usually the issue.
