1. The Bad Boy
Of the many types of men, the bad boy seems to be the most irresistible. I’ll grant you, some bad boys aren’t really that bad. However, when your bad boy seems cold rather than simply brooding, when he’s too moody to talk to, and when he’s completely negative about everything, it’s time to move on.
2. The Married Man
Women who date married men may be able to come up with justification – like he’s not happy, he’s in the midst of a divorce, he’s the one cheating, and so on – but the thing is … none of that matters. He’s probably not going to leave his wife. Even if a guy is just dating another girl, he’s still unavailable. Would you want someone breaking up your marriage or relationship? Odds are, he himself just needs to know that he’s still attractive to other women. Don’t fall for that.
3. The Long Distance Lover
Some types of men keep themselves at a distance – literally. Now, I’m not trying to say long distance relationships will never work; the Better Half and I are living proof that they can. However, if your long distance lover shows no signs of wanting to be closer, if you’re the one putting all the effort into closing that distance, and if he gives you no set responses about when you’ll be able to physically be together, then you’ve definitely got some thinking to do.
4. The Guy Who’s Emotionally Gone
Worse than the long distance guy is the emotionally distant guy. You may be able to work with someone who lives far away from you, but when a man is emotionally distant … it’s almost sure to be a disaster. If he constantly has a wall up and won’t let you in, then love isn’t going to be a real option for either of you. He just won’t allow it.
5. The Commitment Phobic Man
Many types of men seem to be allergic to commitment. This isn’t a one night stand kind of man (see below), it’s the guy who’s dated you for years but isn’t ready to take things any further. In fact, he gives no indication that he ever wants things to be more serious. Is it worth the effort to try and push him into something he doesn’t want?
6. The One Night Stand Guy
This guy is just after the chase. That’s all in the world he wants. Once he’s landed one girl, he’s off to the next one. Not only is this extremely dangerous behavior, but it’s emotionally harmful. You don’t want to be a notch in this man’s bed post.
7. The Unreliable Man
Unreliable guys are just the worst types of men. He doesn’t show up, he doesn’t commit, he doesn’t care. He’s a mixture of all the other types of guys mentioned. You might be sure you can change him, but you can’t – and you’ll likely be left hurt and heartbroken if you try.
