I'm not talking about in the sexual sense, but in general from men.

What does a man do that can make you turn your back on him forever?
Do certain physical characteristics signal stay away? Overweight men? Short men? etc
Some men have this look, like they work out their upper arms, but seem ignore their forearms. I find this gross. Overly arrogant men are a total turn off, if one has to tell about how great they are, they probably arent great at all. Generally I am not attracted to overweight men, I am fit, and very active in my day to day life and would expect the same of any man I am with. Any sort of racism or bigotry is a huge turn off to me. Of course any sort of abusive behavior is an immediate deal breaker.

A man who is educated, and always strives to better himself is important. I like manly man, one who likes to take charge and make decisions, but its a fine line between being manly, and being a control freak. A real man knows when to step back and let the lady take charge, I guess that would be the give and take of a good relationship.

I don't know, things like that.

Muscle-heads thinking that because they have muscles, they'll always get the girl. Or, a guy being needy and seeking to get my attention. I don't mind that if I'm with someone, but if I'm not, I find it extremely annoying.

Arrogance is #1 for me. Now, confidence is an attractive and sexy trait; over-confidence and arrogance are flat-out not.

In line with what septicemia mentioned, men who persistently emphasize how great or nice they are. To me it screams that they protest too much and have something to hide. JMO based on many dealings with "Great Guys" who were anything but.

That's not to say that you nice men out there should never say "I'm a good/nice/decent guy," but it has more effect if you let your actions speak for you rather than wearing a sandwich board that shrieks out "HEY, I'M I NICE GUY.... LOOK AT MEEEE!!!" Again, JMO.

Extreme self-absorption to the point that he doesn't care to listen about anything but his own core interests - this goes for friends too. This type of person seems to view others as a potential entourage who'll bask in his glow as he goes on ad nauseum about his hobbies, his opinions, his bowel movements, whatever.
... But I like talking about my bowel movements. Sad

Yes you do, lim. lol

I like how women love to mention the fine line in traits they want. That way one day you can be manly, and the next day you are controlling. Or one day you are confident, and the next you are arrogant. It allows them an easy out. Yet men are not allowed such things.

Pompous asses turn me off... as well as disgusting eating habits (chewing with mouth open, etc etc etc)

Other than that... I'm pretty laid back about shit like that.

Ugh! I always turn away from dating profiles that say, "I'm a good man" or, "I'm a nice guy"... or worse, "I'm a good Christian". Actions are the most honest statements.

I disagree. Men often want women who are "strong" but who are not "bitches". There's also the line between "independent" and "cold". Then, there's the way other men want women who make them feel needed, but at the same time, the woman must not be "needy".
poor hygiene.
