Woman shares long list of turn offs – like men tying laces or buying loo roll


A woman revealed the traits she finds a big turn off when dating.

Madyson O'Connor's "icks" include blokes who tie shoelaces in public, blow on hot food, carry colourful umbrellas or buy loo roll.

She also hates when men run for the bus, lose their balance on trains or struggle to use their contactless cards.

But despite her strict list of requirements, the 25-year-old has managed to find love.

The account executive, from London, is in a long-term relationship with boyfriend Jack, 27.

Madyson said: "I feel like icks are normal things that are embarrassing.

"It is something that is super cringey, and something that shouldn't happen but happens all the time.

"I don't think anyone is immune to being icks to themselves – it does happen to me sometimes as well and I'm absolutely mortified when it does.

"Personally, tying my shoes in public is embarrassing.

"Seeing someone have to stop or bend over to put a foot on a ledge – it's not really sexy."

Speaking about her aversion to eye-catching brollies, she added: "I just think if you're an adult, you should have a black umbrella.

"Bright umbrellas are cute until you're about 12.

"I've never been with someone who has a bright coloured umbrella."

Chaps also need to make sure they can get the tube smoothly.

Madyson said: "When you have someone who waits for the gate to close before they tap it, it shows that you're not prepared for life.

"It happens every day, but it's when they just keep trying and and they don't move out the way to sort it."

And if they run for a train, they have to make sure they get onto it and have a firm grasp on the handrail.

The Londoner said: "I can appreciate someone committing to running to get the bus, but if you commit and miss it – ick.

"Especially because the buses and tube come every two minutes you don't have to be weird about it.

"(It's an ick) When the train stops and you almost fall over and everyone sees what's happened.

"You have to pretend nothing has happened and suffer in silence.

"It's even worse when you're on a packed tube and have to grab hold of somebody."

Blowing on hot food and carrying toilet roll also gives Madyson the creeps.

She added: "Picturing a guy blowing on soup on his more than once is just ew.

"Another ick is when you're buying toilet paper and you have to walk back with a huge 16-pack of toilet paper."

Even though she's super picky, Madyson says her turn offs are just a bit of fun.

She added: "Icks can be super light hearted – they can make fun of other people and yourself. It's not mean spirited.

"As much as I hate seeing someone blowing on their hot food – I'm not actually going to never speak to them again – it's just icky."
