Poor hygiene is a big deal breaker for me in a relationship. Sometimes when my boyfriend has a few days off he can be a little lazy but if it goes on too long I always kick his butt in the bathroom and make him brush his teeth and take a shower.

My Hubs has always been a bit slack about brushing his teeth before bed... I ended up buying him one of those singing toothbrushes that sings Queen. As long as he's stoked enough to make it a habit lol
FTR I'm pretty terrible with dental appointments (cleanings etc) I just hate dentists and having them cleaned. I'm pretty sure I've gone stretches of like 5-8 years in between appointments, but my Hubs always goes every 6 months like clockwork.
I did also have a dental hygienist comment that my teeth looked really good for having lapsed in my cleanings for so long, and I don't know if it's true but she said that something about particular bacteria in people's mouths either tend to give them plaque/tartar build up faster or cavities, she said most people tend to lean one way or the other. I've never had a cavity but I know that I tend to be bad for plaque, whereas my Hubs has had a few cavities in his day but doesn't really get plaque buildup.
