is it wrong to be intolerant of smokers?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by jonathan_matos5, Oct 2, 2008.


  1. :confused:

    i was starting to like this girl, but then i found out she smokes anything and everything. i am talking more than a pack a day here, and honestly i find it disgusting. then for some reason i thought maybe i am being shallow and borderline prejudice against people who smoke? i mean i will admit i have smoked a cigar a few times to celebrate but it wasn't really that enjoyable to me.

    am i a shallow dude for ruling out smokers from my list of potential dates?:confused:

    If it turns you off then its a turn off. No shallow or deep about it. You lost attraction.

    It's a turn off, doesn't mean its not shallow. At the same time, your tastes are your tastes, and you can't change those.

    It is somthing you don't like as a peraonality trait, not shallow at all.
     
  5. well by being a dude, you are automatically out of my dating pool. also for some reason i dont care if guys smoke. :meh:

    i do find it particularly unbecoming for a lady to smoke. :atoz:

    I'm pretty much intolerable to most people.


    I'm still pretty tolerant to smokers though, even though I don't smoke myself.

    Naturally, but my point still stands. Just because you don't find it attractive doesn't make you shallow. It's your tastes, much the same way some people aren't attracted to brunettes or blondes. You happen to not be attracted to smokers. Whatever.

    Yes, you are a prejudiced hatemonger. In fact, I don't think it would be enough for you to apologize to the girl. You should have to go to R.J. Reynolds and personally prostrate yourself in front of their corporate offices and beg for forgiveness from everybody your irrational hate has hurt. The workers, their families, the family pets your refusal to encourage smoking has made eat generic brand pet food because they have had to take pay cuts, hospital personnel who have been laid off because they don't have the same number of emphysema patients to look after. The consequences of your smokism are dire and complicated.
     
  9. :D

    in all honesty i never stopped flirting with her, i just opted not to ask her out.

    If you had to make this thread you obviously don't like her whether you are shallow or not.

    Heck no! Having a girlfriend who smokes more than a pack a day would suck for someone who really doesn't like smoke (like me).

    Not necessarily, he makes a ton of threads.
     
  16. yeah, with stupid questions about my lack of luck with girls.:oops:

    honestly im just getting back out there, the last chick i tried to hook up with ended up being a psycho and scared me away from the dating scene for awhile.:scowl: just in the past week i have met two girls that may not be crazy and ones that can tolerate me.;)

    Nope. Few things turn me off more than a beautiful woman lighting up, and this is from someone who did puff for awhile.

    I'll admit to being a bit two-faced, I do smoke cigars every now and again...but hey, it's my opinion and I get to have it. :D
