... Hello Everyone, I guess I just want some advice on how to deal.
When my hubby and I started dating I knew that he smoked, but he had his own place and I had mine and I didn't really notice to much, that and we were apart alot for our "dating" time due to deployments. When he got back and were able to spend more time together I really noticed. It was to the point where we... (7 replies)
... As much as you might tell yourself that it might not bother you, it will. The comment about kissing a smoker being like kissing an ashtray sums it up really well. It's very difficult to get past that. ... (27 replies)
... I'm not sure or not but smokers don't notice the smell so much or the nicotine stuff, its more bad to a non smoker obviously, but if your interested in him..maybe he will be willing to not smoke around you if he knows you guys are going out, and maybe he will quit for you.. ... (27 replies)
... I am not a smoker. My Hubby is. Yes, it does bother me sometimes-like all the $$$ it costs! And I worry about his health and one day he maybe so very sick.
As far as the smell, he always smokes outside away from me and our son. The only time I hate it is when he smokes in the car! He leaves empty boxes in there and it does smell bad and is messy w/ the ashes. That is the... (27 replies)
... I'm a non-smoker who years ago dated a smoker. Kissing him was kinda gross, "like kissing an ashtray"... sorry to all smokers.. but it's true, at least in his case! Plus, he did smell like smoke all the time.. which I'm used to (my Dad's been a smoker all my life, and a few of my friends were smokers) but didn't like it.
For me, he wasn't worth putting up with the smoking.... (27 replies)

... You're right - sounds very true. Let's see what happens. Obviously he will get the idea right away about me not smoking and not favoring it. Should it bother him, I guess we will both end it then and there - however, if he want to make an effort, I will too. I'll be sure to offer him some gum every time he wants to get up close ;) (27 replies)
... I'm thinking OH stand for Other Half.
I gotta say, it's kind of dangerous to get into the thinking of "if he loved me, he'd do this or that." He could just as easily say if YOU loved HIM, you'd take him as he is and not want to make him change, and round and round you go, and nothing changes, and no one's happy. You can either tolerate being with someone who smokes or you... (27 replies)
... Nothing is for sure yet as far as dating him, and quite frankly, I would be a fool to even think that it won't bother me, esp when we are close up face to face. ... (27 replies)
... I couldn't date a smoker. I once dated a guy who chewed tobacco, and that only lasted for 3 months. He tried so hard not to do it around me when we were first dating, but as things grew comfortable, he didn't care about doing it around me. I hated it, of course!

... Well, for me personally, smoking is a lot more than a fault. It's a lifestyle choice that is severely unhealthy for not only the smoker but for everyone else who has to be around him. I know that if I do find that special someone, I want to live a long, healthy life with him. ... (27 replies)
