    Is this really an issue for some people? Would you leave someone because you think they cuss too much?

    I wouldn't leave someone over it, but it would get annoying after awhile if every other word out of their mouth was a cuss word.

    I would if the excessive cursing was associated with an anger issue.
    Most cussing is a reaction to being upset or annoyed or angered.

    I wouldn't leave someone, but i would probably avoid dating them if I noticed they cussed too much. It's unnecessary and makes you look bad.

    It depends on how creative the curses are.

    If it's noticeable and it seems like they can't control when and where they do it then yes, I would be annoyed.

    It boils down to class, I dont want a guy who has no class at all and has a trashy mouth just to sound cool/funny. But if he cannot express himself in an assertive manner that could be a problem too, sometimes the occasion calls for cursing

    I'd say I curse somewhat frequently around my friends but never in front of my family or work environment.

    I do think people that curse loudly in public are somewhat uncivilized. I've gotten onto some of my friends about this before.

    It depends on why/where/how often. I've noticed some guys can't control themselves and react with the f'bomb x100 over someone disagreeing with them.

    I don't expect a grown man to not cuss but being sensible about it is crucial.

    its not the cursing, it is not KNOWING you are that is the problem. so i agree here.

    Reminds me of some of my "encounters"...amazing how "dirty" a man gets and how he expresses that dirty feeling in some colourful ways. I blame porn!!

    My mother curses like a sailor and it annoys me.

    I curse too but not that often.

    I just hate when people feel like they need to curse to get their point across.

    Sometimes it's just how they talk.

    I hate it when people use cutesy language to get around it.

    Ugh so annoying and virginal.

    It's not fudge it's fuck.


    "Virginal"?

    I'd leave someone for calling it "cussing." Sounds too salt-of-the-earth and folksy. icon_wink.gif

    I met someone yesterday who couldn't express himself without using BOTH a variant of "fuck" and "shit" in each sentence. My opinion sank watching him drink out of a wrapped beer bottle on the street. Not someone I would associate with voluntarily.

    That said, I couldn't stand a preening embodiment of middle class morality for whom expletives are forbidden.

    Expletives, like all words, have their times, places, and opportunities for artful deployment.

    I wouldn't leave them because I wouldn't take up with them in the first place.

    Cusssing, swearing, whatever, is a bad habit to get into.
    It sounds like low class or no class or lack of intelligence, to me...

    Like pure and naive and innocent and uppity and shit.

    High morals.

    Hate guys like that.


    Just because someone decides to replace innapropriate words with something else doesnt make then naive or uppity. You're naive for thinking that.

    I like cursing when it is used for emphasis or to express anger. But I would get annoyed with someone who curses 5215135135 times in each sentence.

    Fuck and shit are not really that pleasant sounding after all.

    On another note, I used the word "motherfucker" in anger the other day and got a look that could kill from some uppity young twat, so yeah. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think there is a time and a place for everything. I don't shout out profanities in front of customers or the elderly and I don't go screaming them in public. I do, however; drop a lot of obscenities when I'm around my friends and people that I know don't give a shit about what I say.

    As for a guy I'm interested in. I want him to be able to express himself within reason, but it takes intelligence to understand the concepts of time and place. So I suppose in retrospect the attraction is in his maturity when it comes to expression.

    I worked with a guy once who dropped the F bomb once or twice in every sentence. He said he loved the word "fuck" and wanted to use it again and again.
    I told him I liked the word "antediluvian" (which I do) and wouldn't mind using it again and again so I started putting it in every sentence.
    He was really annoyed.
    Double standard?
