to the original post, idon't think anyone expects you to quit. we do however expect others to respect our preferences. i grew up around smokers, so i couldn't care less. kate on the other hand, is actually allergic to tobacco in any form. 10 minutes around it and she starts to lose her voice.

and... i'll just leave that right where it is. ;-)

It depends. We both smoke and understand that some non-smokers can tolerate it while others can't. If we look at a profile and the person/couple is non-smoking but doesn't specifically mention in their profile then we still may contact them if we think we really may click with them. And in if we do contact non-smokers, we'll always mention that we do smoke in our email with them and make sure that they don't have a problem with that.

Obviously, if a someone specifically states in their profile that they aren't interested in smokers at all then we leave it alone.

we have on our profile that although we do not smoke, smokers are ok. I will however say that after one experience with a couple that chain smoked and everything smelled and tasted like smoke I tend to ask a bit more about smoking habits. People who smoke a bit and tend to smoke outside don't bother me much.

I think it depends on the smoking habit, too. My husband smokes, but only outside (I have asthma) so that might be ok for someone who doesn't want to be around the smoke, but doesn't have a problem with the general smell or taste. For others, the smell/taste is enough for them to pass. When in doubt, ask. Just because someone doesn't smoke, doesn't mean that they will pass on smokers. One thing though - I usually just avoid someone who expressly has "no smokers" anywhere in their profile. But I won't avoid someone who says "Ok to Smokers" but is themselves a non smoker.

BrownEyedBBW, you said it well! We feel the same way. It isn't a personality issue, we just really don't like the smell of smoke around us. And it makes a difference in how attractive the other party is - for US. There are likely to be others who don't feel as strongly, so I'd say you should go ahead and contact them, asking if smoking is an issue for them. Hopefully they'll be honest and polite in their response.

I think that different people have different thresholds so its tough to give a blanket answer. Personally, if a smoker contacted me, I would tell them I was not interested.

For me, It's not a personality thing, it's a sensory thing.

I can't stand the smell smokers tend to have on their clothes, kissing them is not that fun and, since I don't like being in the same room as cigarette smoke, one of us has to leave the room when the smoker needs to light up.

I'm sure though that there are non-smokers who don't have that problems that I do. Good luck :)
