Smoking is a nasty habit, but it’s often very difficult for smokers to say goodbye to their cigarettes.

More than 60 percent of those singles surveyed said they would never date a smoker and eighty-five percent of non-smokers think dating someone who smokes is a “big deal.”First dates for smokers may prove to be more difficult than ever before.
Additionally, only sixteen percent of women and twenty-one percent of men thought smoking was on trend.” Smoking might sound like a deal breaker with those stats, but very few people ever broke up with someone over tobacco use, the survey found.

The survey found that more than 10 percent of smoking men said they’d refuse to get into a serious relationship with another smoker —nearly twice as many as smoking women who said “no” to dating another puffer. Turns out, a majority of non-smokers say it’s just not a good look and it reflects on the character of the person.
“The answers aren’t good news for the smoking crowd: men and women agree in their beliefs that smokers are addicted, enjoy nicotine, and are unhealthy due to their habits,” the survey found.
Be prepared for issues later on, however, when your mate finds out. You want your potential mate to love you despite these nuisances.
