It's perfectly acceptable to have body odor at the gym where everyone sweats heavily; however, allowing your date to experience something this grotesque before she's ready can have devastating consequences.
Body odor is a combination of bacteria and sweat. While sweat is actually odorless, it is bacteria that live off perspiration on our body, creating the bad smell. One of the reasons some men smell more might be because they have higher testosterone levels and are usually more physical than women. Then again, some guys stink simply by virtue of poor hygiene wearing clothes that haven't been washed for a while.
There are plenty of ways to downgrade your B.O. Shower at least once a day with a deodorant soap in order to get rid of dead skin cells and scrub areas that get especially sweaty (like your armpits, crotch, and butt). A good antiperspirant or deodorant containing aluminum or zinc will clog sweat glands, so bacteria have nothing to interact with. Furthermore, regularly washing your clothes and cutting down on coffee, cola, chocolate, and other types of caffeine will reduce B.O.
It doesn’t cost anything to take a bath and to make an effort to look and smell nice. Remember, body odor is an instant turn off and your date will assume that this is how you are all the time, even if you are just having a bad day.So if you want positive attention from women and eventual sex, keep yourself clean.
