WHEN you first start seeing someone, it usually takes a few dates before you really know if it’s going to go anywhere.
But according to this TikTok user, there are a few things you can avoid doing that instantly give blokes “the ick” – but it’s bad news if your name is Becky.

Earlier this year, Toby asked his mates what their instant turn-offs were before sharing them in a video which has been viewed by over 880,000 people.
Before going into the details, he said: “Quick disclaimer, this is just their opinions.
“I’m not saying whether I agree or disagree. If you are easily offended, swipe away now!”
Despite being very on-trend, Toby’s mates said flared leggings put them off dating a girl along with popular white FILA trainers.

Sharing a screenshot of a woman who was wearing a strappy top layered over a T-shirt, Toby’s mates said they weren’t attracted to “girls who buy their clothes on Depop and claim it’s a personality trait.”
After listing the clothes they don’t like, Toby’s friends said they find it annoying when girls get the lyrics wrong when they’re singing along to songs or have chipped nail polish.
Finally, the last thing on the list was the name Becky – which seemed to leave Toby stumped.
Unsurprisingly, the video caused quite a stir online – and hundreds of women shared their frustration in the comments.

One replied: “So just women existing?”
“Oh just are joking me,” a woman called Becky replied. “What the hell can I do about my name!?!”
Meanwhile, another added: “I’m feeling personally attacked right now.”
However, others saw the funny side of what was meant to be a light-hearted clip.
