So you just met the man of your dreams and are ready to live happily ever after? Not so fast. Not all men are what they appear to be on the surface. Before rushing into that next long term relationship that may end in inevitable heartbreak, let’s take a look at 7 men you should steer clear of before entering into a relationship.
Types of Men to Avoid:
1. Men who treat you like their mothers.
Sometimes women are so eager to impress a man that they start taking care him a bit too much in the early stages of dating. They pick up after them. Clean their clothes. Run their errands. Cook all their meals. Etc. It is okay to do these things out of kindness, as long its not all the time. Men who expect women to take care of them all the time are red flags. You are supposed to be his girlfriend, not his mother.
2. Men who are lacking in ambition.
Maybe you met a guy who is charming, fun, and extremely good-looking. He doesn’t have the best job in the world, but you decide to ignore this because everything else is so perfect. This is a mistake. As the relationship progresses, you will become resentful at this man’s lack of ambition and it will cause constant tension in the relationship. Its okay if a man doesn’t have the greatest job, as long as he shows the promise of ambition in some aspect of life, whether that is through a career, raising a family, or any type laudable goals. If this is not present, then avoid the situation.
3. Men who show jealousy early on.
Maybe this is endearing when you first start dating someone. You think to yourself how great it is that a guy finally cares this much about you. Well this does not remain sweet as time goes on. Too much jealousy is poisonous to a relationship and will eventually have you feeling like a hostage in the relationship.
4. Men who claim they don’t know if they are looking for a relationship.
So you’ve been dating for a while and he still doesn’t know what he wants? Wrong. He knows what he wants. It’s just not you.
5. Men who just want to stay in and watch movies.
If you have been dating for less than three months, and he is always suggesting that the two of you just stay in and watch a movie, odds are he is either completely lazy or just out for sex. Either quality does not equate to a good long-term relationship.
6. Men who are rigid in their ways.
Any man who is stuck on a routine and refuses to try anything new will only get worse over time. If you are looking for a life of boredom, predictability, and complete lack of excitement, then this type of man is for you.
7. Men who still live at home in their late twenties and older.
These men will never grow up. Period. Find a man who has a sense of responsibility that takes control over his life, not a child that still lives off his mother.
