My son told me yesterday that he doesn’t think he will be dating this year since he refuses to date any girl who smokes. I wonder if the group of girls that I see collected outside of his school in the morning having one more smoke before the school day begins realize that because of their habit they are missing out on a real catch. And since here in Paris (where I live at the moment) smoking is so prevalent, these girls may never need to worry that they are limiting their prospects on the dating market just because they started smoking when they were twelve.Smoking habits do matter on the North American dating market, though, and online daters seem to recognize that.Smoking is obviously something that cannot be hidden for so long in a relationship and if, at the end of the day, non-smokers only wish to date other non-smokers then smokers are likely to have a much worse outcome on the dating market than non-smokers.Compared to the dating market for non-smokers the market for smokers is what economists would describe as being “thin”.
Was hooked since, though for various reasons haven't had a cigar in nearly 2 years. But I do enjoy the occasional cigar and I do own a pipe. At the reception the jacket compes off and she hitting on anything in a skirt puffin' her stogie and hoping no one notices the smell of unwashed sweat and armpit hair halfway down to her waist. lady friends of mine have actually asked to try my cigars while im smoking them. to me its no biggie since i smoke cigarettes & cigars, i chew and i drink also.
When markets are thin, there are few buyers and sellers and so it is difficult to achieve an equilibrium in which buyers and sellers can settle on a price at which they both want to trade and few transactions take place.
If the market for smokers is thin, then, smokers are more likely to still be single when the market clears because it will be harder for them to find a partner who has all the qualities that they hoped for in a mate simply because they are searching within a smaller pool of singles than are non-smokers.
There were 8 of us at dinner, 5 girls, all smokers, and 2 others said they picked up the habbit after dating a guy who smoked. Smoking is nasty, unhealthy, it makes you stink, makes your clothes smell and when I am in a room with smokers I feel like I am covered in tar until I take a shower.
So I looked it up online and apperantly the smoking fetish is a huge deal. And how do you feel knowing that according to the statistics I found that 6 out of 10 men are secretly watching you when you smoke, most of whom are in the closest about their fetish? I only sit and smoke, roll the ashes off ~ never tump or flick 'em. Oh I love it....a man tryin' to tell us what to substitute for cigarettes. I told my lady that if she ever started smoking it will be outside, she will not smoke in the vehicle and I will not kiss her until she brushes her teeth.
