To which Miss Kitty and Pa I politely say "balderdash". In my humble opinion, if you like the person alot, but can't abide one or two little things about them,; ask them politely to stop. Maybe they don't even know they are doing it or even if they do, perhaps do not realize that it bothers you.Be communicative with us poor imperfects, or you may find that you tossed out the right guy with the dishwater. : )

Yikes! I would say that is definitely too picky (at least for me)!
wnjjbill hit it on the head with:
"You just need to find somebody who has quirks you can live with."
"When seeking perfection, you loose before you begin."
More power to ya' if you feel the need to be that picky, if it works for you.
jerryw13 also has a good point with:
"...the only one you need to satisfy is yourself. "
However, consider the consequences of both. Using your example above, and assuming all else is equal - let's say 'Mr Packsalot' is SOL cuz he has no second chance. So today you are lonely - conversely, let's say you showed him by packing your smokes 10 times, you both whip out a cigarette and compare butts - hmmm, same result. Mr. Packsalot decides to adopt your methods and you both live happily ever after.....packing only 10 times. No more "annoyance" and no more lonely nights....
Is something as trivial as some guy trying to pack his 100-size smokes into a more non-filtered regular blend length REALLY worth dismissing the potential to be 'happily-ever-after'?
I think not! But again, the decision is entirely up to you.
Using only the information you gave, this makes me conclude the answer to your question is -- YES.
I don't think you are too picky. I think that these little things that annoy you are telling you that you just haven't found the right one yet. They are just little signs that you shouldn't waste too much time unless it is to just have fun. When the right one appears, you won't care if he packs his cigs on his head in public or walks around biker events wearing camo pants with tie die tee-shirts in clashing colors. I know this because I could have written your post--I am having the same experience. Only when there is true love can you fully accept someone for who they are, quirks and all.
