Turn Off:
No effort to be presentable - coming to dates na hindi neat and hindi maayos ang damit
Boring and not smart - #1 to dapat. I dont expect naman na we discuss politics and existence of God pero be cheerful naman. Magbaon ng jokes.
I dont mind paying half of the expenses basta wag lang kita ilibre because in the first place I wouldn't go out naman if you didn't ask me to. I could have stayed at home and not spend on anything.
Not knowing what you want. You ask me on a date, make plans. Or check with ahead of time if there is something na ayoko or allergic ba ako with something.

I remember my best first date ever. Sya ang peg sa mga succeeding guys that I've dated. Though we really didn't end up together, he will always be treasured. First, he made plans on what we are going to do. Which leads to me my second point na in making plans he was able to manage money. We didn't go to just one place na fancy. So we went to timezone (college pa kami nito) while waiting for the movie because we met at an earlier time , watch a movie, had dinner in an average restaurant,  then coffee after.  Ang dami namin nagawa without being too magastos. we split the movie and dinner but he paid for the timezone and the coffee. Third, the flow of conversation was awesome. very encouraging sya to talk about the movie while we were having dinner, talk about our favorite movies, the worst movies ever. He knows the right way to disagree with my opinions without attacking me personally. then get to know portion kami over coffee. Both of us smoke so parang mas relax. coffee, yosi. inumaga na kami sa sobrang kwentuhan. What I will never forget is how enthusiastic he is sa activities namin, parang "yeah! game!" nakakahawa lang. and yes sobrang saya. Second date, sinamahan nya ako bumili ng dress for this conference i have to attend, pati sales lady, tuwang tuwa sa kanya. :)

^ Uyyyy. =))

Turn Offs:
Late - Eto dealbreaker talaga. Magpa-impress ka naman, kuya. Kung late ka sa first date natin, huwag mo nang asahan na may kasunod pa.
No hobbies or interests - No, womanizing doesn't count.
Hindi hygienic - This doesn't necessarily mean being mabango kasi I know a lot of guys na walang smell, but they still look clean. Hindi na tayo high school, lagpas ka na dapat dito sa stage na 'to.
Makes me pay for everything - I don't mind KKB, pero 'wag naman kapal muks.
Pikon - I'm brutally honest and my humor is sarcastic. Kung 'di mo kaya sakyan, edi wag.
Rude sa waiters and attendants
Doesn't pay attention to what I say - Sana hindi na lang tayo nag date 'di ba?
No opinion on things, 'yung oo lang ng oo
Puro sex ang gustong topic

Turn Ons:
Funny - Bungisngis ako, so this should be very easy.
Good conversationalist - Para hindi nawawalan ng pinag-uusapan.
Hindi KJ - I once went out with a guy tapos he was asking ano daw gusto ko gawin. Sabi ko mag-Red Box kami. Ayaw kasi 'di raw siya kumakanta. Ayaw din mag-movie, puro movie na lang daw. Ayaw din mag-window shop, mapapagod daw siya. Sana hindi na lang kami lumabas at nag-usap na lang kami sa text.
Talks about himself - Meron guys na tanong lang ng tanong at ayaw magkwento. Okay lang din kung narcissistic, palakasan tayo ng hangin.
Would not go beyond first base on the first date
Not necessarily smart, but at least could impart me things I don't know about
A text or call after the date - Kahit nga ba 'di niya ko type, nagsayang ako ng oras, pera, at effort mag-ayos para lumabas kasama siya when I could be at home making love with the internet.

Turn Ons:

a) Good Conversationalist
b) Smells good
c) Malambing

Turn Offs:

a) Text ng text, it's very rude...next time na may gumawa nito...iiwan ko na talaga on the spot
b) Walang pera pang contribute (ano ka gusto lagi libre?)
c) KJ, I like action dates like bowling, billiards, ice skating, videoke, pwede naman tayong
mag-usap habang kumakain or coffee
Not sure about the mature part but I do know that women age faster than men

Women who are interested won't confuse you

What women say they want and what they actually want are often 2 different things

Turn on

Good conversationalist
Nice smile

Turn offs

Bad breath
Going dutch on a first date

Coincidentally, lahat ng list ng turn on ko are the qualities of my bf! I remembered our first date, we were walking going to his car in the parking lot. He offered his hand because i was wearing heels tapos unstable yung ground ng parking (steel parking kasi).

Being the pakipot me, i resisted his hand. Ayun after a few seconds, i tripped and my shoe flew off the air! Hahaha!!

One of the good dates i had was in a coffee shop, we had dinner them coffee after. Started around 7pm.We had too much fun talking that we realized its 3am na pala!! (The cafe is 24/7).
You think you have forever.. but you dont.

Turn off(s):
1. He asked me kung cute daw ba sya and i was like "ha?". Susme, you should not ask those kind of things no! Ano yun, naghihintay ka ng papuri sakin? hintayin mo na lang na magkusa ako haha  ;D ang tunay na cute/gwapo, hindi nagtatanong ng ganun kasi alam na nila sa sarili nila ang totoo at humble rin sila about dun  ;)

2. Masyadong madikit! Wala namang glue at hindi rin naman kita tatakbuhan kaya no need na dumikit ka sakin ng sobra. I really hate it. Ayoko ng sobrang pda, yung tipong parang humaling na humaling sayo kung umasta, dapat sakto lang.

3. Badbreath. Yung gumuguhit talaga haha  ;D

Turn on:
1. Nice smile. When it comes to guys, 3 bagay ang lagi kong pinapansin: Hairstyle (bagay ba sa kanya, makapal or manipis ba yung hair, bagets ba yung style, nadadala ba nya), Nose (Iba talaga pag matangos  ;D) and Smile. Pag sablay ka dun sa naunang dalawa pero napakaganda naman ng ngiti mo, ah grabe, maaakit pa rin ako sayo haha  ;D Iba talaga yung impact ng ngiti sayo ng guy eh. Lalo na yung pag nagsmirk sila o kaya yung tipong nahihiya na ipakita sayo yung smile nya.

yun kakilala ko naman, kabaliktaran nito. wala ibang gustong gawin kundi pag usapan ang tungkol sa sarili nya. kapag ako naman ang nagkwekwento, aba wala man lang matinong comment naibibigay. minsan mag cocomment lang ng "ah! ok!" tapos balik na ulit sa mga kwento tungkol sa sarili nya.  ::)
