As a non-smoker; Could you fall in love with somebody who smokes?

Would you put up with it? Would you hope he'd stop? Or would you hit the break and stop dating?

  • That was one of my stipulations on dating... and it went right out the window when I met my SO. Do I wish he'd quite smoking? Yes! Would I trade him for a non-smoker? No way.

  • I wouldn't date a smoker in the first place. I have asthma and smoke triggers asthma attacks. I already have quite a bit of lung damage and do not need anymore. I wouldn't want to be wih someone who would possibly die prematurely of lung cancer, nor would I want someone wasting our money on cancer sticks. I wouldn't want anyone exposing my kids to smoke either and I wouldn't want to smell it all over the house, car, clothes etc. It's a no-go for me hands-down. Dj nor I have ever taken a single puff of a cancer stick.

  • No, I don't think I would. Smoking is such a turn off to me.

  • My hubby didn't smoke when we were dating. He started though, when he deployed. Or was in Korea, forget which. I hate it, but, it helped get him through what he hated. I wish he'd quite already. It's gross. But he's a huge asshole when he tries to stop. One day he will.....

  • i was only an occasional smoker before i met my SO...he smokes about half a pack a i do too because i couldnt tolerate kissing him until i was a regular smoker too because now the taste and smell doesnt bother me....sad, but true.
