Consider the smooth four-manifold $M = (S^1\times S^3)\#(S^1\times S^3)\#(S^2\times S^2)$. Does $M$ admit a symplectic form?

If $\omega$ is a symplectic form, then the real cohomology class $[\omega]$ satisfies $[\omega]^2 = [\omega^2] \neq 0$. Note that $H^*(M; \mathbb{R})$ has such classes.

Recall that a symplectic manifold admits an almost complex structure. In general, a closed four-manifold $N$ admits an almost complex structure if and only if there is $c \in H^2(N; \mathbb{Z})$ such that $c \equiv w_2(N) \bmod 2$ and $c^2 = 2\chi(N) + 3\sigma(N)$. As $M$ is spin (i.e. $w_2(M) = 0$), and $\chi(M) = \sigma(M) = 0$, the class $c = 0$ satisfies the two conditions so $M$ admits an almost complex structure.

In addition to the above, the vanishing of $w_2(M)$, $\chi(M)$, and $\sigma(M)$ implies that $M$ is parallelisable by the Dold-Whitney Theorem. Moreover, it follows from our knowledge of complex surfaces that $M$ does not admit a complex structure, i.e. $M$ admits almost complex structures, but none of them are integrable.

One special aspect of symplectic manifolds in dimension four is that they have a non-trivial Seiberg-Witten invariant by a theorem of Taubes. When $b^+ \geq 2$, a non-trivial Seiberg-Witten invariant implies that no metric of positive scalar curvature exists, but in this case $b^+(M) = 1$ and $M$ does admit a metric of positive scalar curvature. I'm not sure if a deeper understanding of Seiberg-Witten theory could be used to provide a negative answer to the above question. In particular, I don't know if $M$ has a non-trivial Seiberg-Witten invariant.
