I haven’t rowed competitively in a few years. I rowed throughout middle and high school for my school’s team. Besides erging at the gym that’s about as close as I get these days. I rowed lightweight in high school, and unfortunately my university’s team is heavyweight only.
Of course. I’ll risk being called judgmental or superficial or whatever on here, but here goes:
1. A great smile. It shows confidence. Paying attention to one’s dental hygiene are important. Straight teeth are always a plus.
2. Being in shape. A woman who pays attention to her figure or exercises shows that she cares about her appearance. Again, it’s about confidence.
Overall, it could matter less to me what race you are, eye or hair color you have, etc. If you are confident, have a great sense of humor, and are intelligent, that’s a good start.
As far as turn-offs go…lack of care in appearance or hygiene (sweats in inappropriate occasions, etc) is a pretty big turn-off for me. Also, if a woman smokes weed, pot, or whatever else you want to call it, it’s a pretty major turn-off. Sorry, but that’s the way I feel.
