It may not be anything even bad, but for whatever reason, it’s such a deep-rooted turn-off that we can no longer engage in any romantic interactions or flirtations.
This instant death-knell? Well, we all know it as the ‘ick’, and now more and more women are sharing their ‘icks’ online.
And while some of them we can see, others are less fair on men.
One person posted their list of 43 icks on Twitter, which elicited a lot of response from their followers.
Some of these icks included: “Men who use their hips too much when they walk”, “has a YouTube channel”, and “has an iPad.”
And while we know that some of these preferences are downright ridiculous, it seems us women can’t help but lose themselves to the power of the ick.
“I agree with quite a few of these,” one person wrote in the comments,
“Why do I agree with some of this list?” added another.
A third said: “A man having an iPad just doesn’t sit right with me.”
Men who found the list were less than pleased, with one snootily adding: “Might as well add breathing to the list.”
But that’s not the meanest or most unreasonable ick we’ve seen doing the round.
One woman says using the ‘wrong’ type of the emojis was something that put her off a guy (monkey emojis, we’re looking at you).
A second woman said: “Holding an umbrella is enough to give me the ick but if that umbrella turns inside out they are never seeing me again,” to which one man replied: “We’re not waterproof wtf.”
And a third woman said: “Filling their car up with petrol, don’t know why just makes me feel so weird.”
But perhaps the most hilarious/least fair ick we’ve seen is from the Black Gals Livin’ podcast, where host Jas admitted that she is turned off by seeing “men on treadmills in the gym”.
“I’m sorry, I know I’m wrong,” she said. “I just don’t like seeing it.”
Sorry guys, but the icks have spoken….
