WOMEN often focus on the things about men that rub them the wrong way, while not realising or accepting that they too have faults and shortcomings that can be a big turn off for men.

This week we asked men to list the 10 types of women who turn them off, and this is what they said:

1. The control freak

"Some women do not seem to realise that a man is at his best when he is allowed to be the man, even if he fails at it," Kirkland J said. "There is a reason why Gold told women to be submissive to men. I can tell you that no man likes a woman who is controlling and doesn't allow him to make decisions — none!"

2. The chatterbox

"My worst turn-off is a woman who chats too much!" Lenny T said. "The least little thing you say to her, or whatever you and her do together, even in bed, it reaches road and to her family and friends. You just can't trust a woman like that. Women must know that we value loyalty and confidentiality and keep the things we share between us," he said. "And then they complain that we don't open up and share our feelings. That is the reason why — you chat too much!"

3. The mannequin

"She might be able to get away with the false hair because sometimes you really can't tell, but when you come with all parts of you false, that turns me off big time. All false butts they have selling now! " Gawayne L said.

4. Miss reminder

"I don't like women who feel that they should hold your past over you," Clyde D said. "Any little thing you do wrong, they remind you of your past."

5. The grouper

"Don't put all men in a group. Just don't tell me all men are the same and yet expect me to treat you differently," Gregory

T said.

6. The labeller

"Don't tell me I'm gay because I have male friends. I am with her and have been for some time but still she tells me I'm gay if I want to hang out with some brethren or if any of them calls me," Loxton C said. "The very thought turns me off."

7. The foul-mouthed smoker

"I like ladies, so the moment I realise you cuss bad words or smoke, that's it for me," Markland G said.

8. The woman with no class

"I don't know why some women believe that wearing slips and brassieres on the street is attractive," Richard reasoned. "It is a big turn off for me. Or you see them on the street corner with a towel wrapped around them. Not even in my house I don't want to see my woman do that."

9. The independent planner

"If you are going to make plans that include me as your partner, ask me first," Miguel K said. "I have the right to say 'no'. It is a turn-off for me when women behave as if they are the only ones in the relationship and you are the last one to know what is going on. Big turn- off."

10. The woman of excess

"I don't know about anyone else but my big turn-offs are excessive make-up, underarm hair, long fingernails, smelly breath and worst of all, a bad personality," Robert F said.
