Put somebody off

washing upThe phrasal verb to put somebody off, (doing sth) means to make someone dislike something or someone, or to discourage someone from doing something.

For example, all the washing up puts me off cooking. Or, the ideas of compromise and commitment put me off dating. Or CR7’s hedonistic ego puts me off liking Real Madrid. What puts you off people?  What puts you off from doing something?
