Smokers are less sexy

A recent survey of 500 adult Americans found that the vast majority of nonsmokers ranked smokers as less than sexy. Men were slightly more likely to find smokers unattractive, though women weren’t far behind--with 54 percent saying smoking has a negative impact on attractiveness.

Smoking is bad overall for adults who are dating. Two out of three adults would not get into a serious relationship with a smoker.

According to the survey:

“The answers aren’t good news for the smoking crowd: men and women agree in their beliefs that smokers are addicted, enjoy nicotine, and are unhealthy due to their habits. Sixty-one percent of women thought smokers were unhealthy, just slightly higher than men'

Furthermore, only 5 per cent of fellow smokers preferred dating another smoker, so smokers have an further reduced choice of partners.

Surprisingly though, only 20 percent of nonsmokers would be offended with a post-sex smoke.

The solution?

The best solution of course is to quit entirely. If you prefer to try an alternative, e-cigarettes are more socially acceptable and less likely to land you in the deal-breaker zone.
