You've only got one chance to make a first impression and when it comes to being a guests in someone's home. Party hosts were asked to rank 11 different guests’ behaviors and it should be no surprise the worst thing you could do is ask to smoke indoors, with women and men agreeing it was dreadful.  On a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the worst, smoking was ranked a 5. Although asking to vape inside wasn't seen as bad with men ranking it a 2 while women give it a 3.  Guests who keep looking at their phone is also frowned upon more by women than men.  To that subject, women more than men found guests who ask for the Wi-Fi password annoying.  Where women and men agree on poor first impressions are guests who leave food on their plate, guests looking at music or books without asking and guest not using a coaster under a drinking glass were annoyances.  So to come off with positives, complementing the host home was tops of the positive list. On a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the most positive, men and women said this was a 5 and the best way to impress.  Guests offering to help wash dishes after a meal was also high as well as bringing drinks to dinner and guests removing shoes before entering their home.
