Hi guys not sure where to put this... but.... a friend of mine has just met a guy she really likes... the only thing that is putting her off is he has a slightly smelly breath... she reckons it smells of plaque :confused: :confused: :confused: :D she is a bit of a clean teeth freak anyway, we all like clean teeth but she is a bit OTT but anyway this is kinda putting her off him...

my question is how would you word something like this to him just to subtly tell him there is a bit of a smell without making an issue out of it???

anyone any experiences with this??

all help much appreciated...

Oh heck. Toughy one that.

I would certainly want to know if it was me with the bad breath. I think I'd be very embarrased to be told though if I was younger.

So what would I do? Ummm....finking hard.

Okay. Offer him a mint and say "you know the saying....never refuse a mint if someone offers;)" If he's bright...he'll get the hint.

Or, she could take the cowards option and use payback.com :D They'll do it in a nice way :D

It's a great site;) and might get around the problem without her being involved.


Loves VLCD's !
Is she sure he isn't in ketosis ? :D

Seriously I would offer a breath freshner mint, not just an ordinary one and I think it will make him think. It isn't an easy topic so I think it will have to be gently gently approach, especially if he is a sensitive soul. Good luck !


do what I do to my husband after he has eaten curry - "theres no way I'm kissing that until you have cleaned the stench away"
he either brushes his teeth or Bu**ers off


:confused: Mmm?

sounds suspiciously like a case of K-BOD (Ketosis Breath of death), maybe she should suggest going for a coffee and offering him a nut bar and 10 sweetex!:rolleyes:
No, seriously I think I'd just come out with it..maybe suggest they both brush their teeth before a morning session, sorry TMI but I dont like to beat around the bush!:p

Keep us posted on her state of play?
