    Now that you vape, how will this/has this effected who you date?

    I haven't dated for a few years now, and only started vaping in October of 09.

    Before that, I would only consider other smokers. I tried dating "smoker friendly" men, but in the long run it became a deal breaker anyway.

    Now, I can't stand the smell of smoke anymore. It actually makes me gag. But I feel somewhat hypocritical because I used to smoke, and a non-smoker could feel/think that my vaping is still a form of smoking and it still be a deal breaker.

    Ohhh such a conundrum. Maybe I'll just avoid dating for another few years till vaping becomes a norm.

    How about you? What have you experienced, or what feedback have you gotten?

    Well if you count a slow spell of say 15 years than I havent had a problem with dating and vaping because theres NO men around my town hehe.

    But supposing I was actively dating, I dont think Id have a problem dating a smoker while I vape, but if I didnt vape the smoke would probably make me want to smoke all the time.

    Date? Ummm, gee. It's been a while for me too. Not too clear actually what constitutes a date, kinda amorphous. But, if a lady chose to spend an evening of mutual entertainment with me, I'll be damned if her cigarettes would deter me, LOL.

    agreed. w/ the "what constitutes a date" i've never known, things just sort of happened w/ me, i'd be friends w/ some1 then the next thing i know i'm taken. but w/ the smoking, we were smokers too. w/ PVs though i don't see it being too much of an issue, hand them 1 to try :)

    I haven't dated in about five years. To be honest the smoking was an issue. Maybe not with the men (judging by some of the responses) but I just felt like a hypocrite dating anyone that didn't want to date a smoker. I was honest- but why would anyone do that? Nevermind
    Anyhoo... With kids it's difficult anyway, so I just decided to wait until they are a little less dependant. I figure I have about five more years till my youngest wants nothing more to do with me :laugh: so by then it will be more commonplace.

    Also thinking there has to be someone that would want to date you in the first place. Not much available for a 40yr old male in these parts. (at least that isn't absolutely crazy):p

    One of my exes who saw smoking as a deal breaker is pursuing me again. We've hung out a few times, and she's enjoyed our time together. she like that i don't stink, don't sneak off [hence the stinkiness], and being able to do more stuff.
