Stinky Breath is a New Love's Worst Nightmare
The Daily Express (UK) ^ | January 24, 2011 | Daily Express reporter

Posted on 01/25/2011 8:56:00 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

MOST girls’ morning-after nightmare is waking to their new love’s bad breath.

A stale mouth bothers nearly half of women - 41 per cent – far higher than the one in four who fear getting naked in front of their man.

And one in three men are bothered too by “morning mouth”, according to a survey.

Other dating nightmares include suffering awkward silences, being stood up and your partner in need of a deodorant.

A poll of 1,045 adults by BioRepair toothpaste also reveals that most people fear having food stuck in their teeth, discovering they have no chemistry with their date, falling over and spilling a drink.

One in four men fear being stood up on a date compared with just six per cent of women.

Louise Fair, spokeswoman for BioRepair toothpaste, said: “It was surprising just how fearful Brits are of having morning breath in front of a new partner, especially as this came in as more embarrassing than being naked in front of a new partner.”

A UK article and there are issues with no deodorant? I thought deodorant was only a US thing.

Hmmmm...UK?

Many of the people in the UK don’t seem to have the best of teeth.

Maybe if they didn’t have socialized medicine, they would have better dental care, better teeth and that would mean better breath?

If we don’t get rid of Obamacare, is this our future...more stinky breath?

Deodorant without antiperspirant doesn’t always get the job done....

A nice way to avoid the morning breath— keep a couple of apples and a paring knife on the bedside table.

Sharing a couple of slices can be a little romantic and it takes the fur off the teeth while freshening the breath.

No longer tastes like a monkey slept in there.

Most girls in England probably wake up next to someone whose name they can’t remember and who smells like 12 pints of Newcastle and 20 Benson & Hedges, so I can see why this would be a problem.

"Girls" should not be sleeping with men.

Just sayin'.

True. Men who sleep with girls can’t handle actual women, IMO.

Why, oh why would one “be afraid of being naked in front of” the person they just finished nakedly trading bodily fluids with?

Or do Brits “perform sweating grapplings” in the dark, while wearing proper evening attire?

Strange how the results favor the "surveyor" selling more toothpaste.

What is this “new love” of which you speak?

It didn’t occur to them to brush their teeth after waking up? I do, and so does the man beside whom I wake up.

I can scrub my teeth and be fresh as a daisy.

But ugly is permanent.

The Dean undressed
with heaving breast
the Bishop's wife to lie on.

He thought it lewd
to do it nude
so he kept his old school tie on.

You sure know how to hurt a girl's feelings. I am a 70 year old girl and all my 60 to 70 year old girlfriends are still girls. We played Mah Jongg yesterday and told jokes and ate and laughed. Yeah we are still girls!

Old love works fine for me.
Hubby has been my love and
best friend for 38 years.
I’m so lucky he loves me.

That looks like it might be the actor Tom Atkins.

So these results came from a study done by...a toothpaste company. No bias there!

Martin, that was a little disturbing to see right before bedtime.

One last look and off to bed. I’m sure the Chantix can outdo that. It has so far.
