Once again, ladies, I’ve been dating different men and realizing which ones are good and which ones are bad. I can tell you, I’ve had my share of bad, and I’m almost at the point of giving up altogether and living out the next fifty years of my life alone. Still, I have hope that there’s a Mr. Right for me (I mean, I know a lot of great men who are already taken by some lucky woman, so there must be more out there). While we’re looking for Mr. Right, though, we seriously have to skip over Mr. Wrong.
#1 The Abuser
Of all the absolutely worst types of men to date, this one is the one you have to get away from now! Abusive men, whether they are emotionally or physically abusive, will never change. Believe me, I’ve known both. No matter how much he says he’ll change, or how much you hope he’ll change, the truth is, he won’t. I know it’s not an easy truth to hear, but you need to recognize it because your life might depend on it.
#2 The Egotist
The Egotist is also one of the worst types of men to date. this guy might seem like Mr. Nice, but he is really full of himself. So what’s the big deal, you ask? Well, the Egotist will never, ever put you first. Your achievements will not mean anything to him (you’ll be lucky if he even acknowledges them), he’ll always make the plans (yours are not important) , and he requires you to be at his beck and call. Seriously, you don’t want to live like this, do you?
#3 The Party Guy
Right up there with the Egotist, you have the Party Guy. This guy is fun, I mean he’s tons of fun, but that’s really all there is. I can’t say he’s a bad guy (chances are he’s a real sweetheart underneath his frat boy attitude), but he’s never going to grow up. I guarantee you’ll get tired of his drunken stumbling into your room, and his out-every-weekend-with-the-guys personality.
#4 The “I’m Sorry” Guy
Another one of the absolutely worst types of men to date is the “I’m Sorry” Guy. This guy, unlike the egotist, doesn’t flat out tell you he’s the awesome one. he is way more slick than that. he does think his plans are more important than yours, but instead of saying it, he’ll just forget your plans, do what he wants, and then call you to say he’s “sorry”. In fact, he says it all the time. This guy isn’t’ man enough to keep his commitments, and thinks it’s too wrong to flat out be chauvinistic, so he just apologizes whenever he breaks your plans or does something to make you feel bad. This guy is also never going to change.
#5 The Jerk
Are you dating a jerk? Yes, this is one of the absolutely worst types of men to date. You know the kind I’m talking about. He always walks in front of you, he flirts with the waitress while you’re ordering dinner, he doesn’t open the door or carry stuff in, he doesn’t tip…maybe he even expects you to pay. After sex, he leaves without staying the night. Get rid of him, you can do so much better.
#6 The Cheapskate
If you find yourself paying for dinner, paying for the movie, dealing with the line “I forgot my wallet”, or hearing your man haggle at the bakery, then you’re dating a cheapskate. You could always tell yourself it’s good to be thrifty, you can even say he’ll be able to take care of you when you get married, but the truth is, he will nag you for every dollar you spend if you ever get a joint checking account. his money is his money, and your money is also his money. Dump him and go buy yourself some shoes, woman.
#7 The Liar
Liars are some of the absolutely worst types of men to date. The problem isn’t just the lying, it’s also that when they’re telling the truth you really have no idea. Any relationship all boils down to trust, and there is no trust with this guy.
#8 The Cheat
Speaking of trust, another guy to avoid is the cheat. Now, you already know you should avoid a guy who cheats on you with other women, but there’s another kind of cheat as well. the guy who cheats at life. You should never date a guy who cheats his way out of things. Does he cheat when you play board games together? Does he cheat when he’s playing cards? If so, then you have a man who is spoiled and untrustworthy. Get rid of him.
#9 The Player
We’ve all dated this one. He’s the player. He’s gorgeous, he has style, he is the man that men look up to and the man that women want to be with (and they do). He’s not “technically” cheating on you because whenever you ask him where you stand in the relationship he always says something like “Baby, I adore you, and if I were at a different place in my life, it would be you I’d choose”. Something that says he wants his freedom, but still wants to be in your bed. Yeah, he found a loophole to cheating, but he’s still a jerk.
#10 The Martyr
Last, but not least, of the absolutely worst types of men to date is the martyr. I’ve dated this one, too. I’ve dated all of these guys, really, and let me tell you the martyr is the most annoying one of all. He feels as if the world owes him something. He thinks it’s okay to be lazy because he’s “earned” it. He probably still lives at home and constantly gives you his conspiracy theories. Plus, he’s really angry at “the man”. While at first the martyr might seem edgy and hip, the truth is, he’s just a user who refuses to grow up. Get rid of him fast before he drains your bank account (trust me on that).
Are you dating a dud? Leave us a note, I’ll be happy to give you advice.
