We all have a type – the unobtainable bad boy, the dreamer, the smooth talker, and so on – that we sometimes pursue for a while in order to “get it out of our systems,” or have a bit of fun. It’s probably smarter to steer clear of these types, but when we’re young and in love (or want to be in love) we sometimes see the world through rose-colored glasses and don’t spot the warning signs. In order to lighten the hue of those rose-colored glasses, here is a list to help identify the warning signs of men who are more likely to become learning experience than lifelong partners.
Your average everyday commitment-phobe.
The Undercover Asshole
Really nice on the outside, but a snake on the inside.
The “Yes” Man
You can walk all over him, and he does whatever you say.
Men you like because they are there during a rough time in your life– usually after a breakup.
The “Wounded Bird”
He’s just gotten his heart broken and thinks you will be able to heal it.
The Upper Class Twit
The really rich guy without a lot of depth
Mr. “No Strings Attached”
The guy who will sleep with you but considers love a four-letter word
The Older Man
As in old enough to be your dad.
A guy who reminds you too much of your father or the kind of guy you wish were your father
A guy you are convinced you can improve.
The Mama’s Boy
Oh! How sweet! Your man calls his mother twice a day. Just to "check in".
The Baggage Carrier
This one brings the drama - may be divorced, involved or even married. Steer clear.
Mr. “You’ll Never Do Better Than Me.”
Get rid of this guy. ASAP!
The addict, the heavy drinker, or the party guy
The text-messaging-emailing-but-never-calling guy
The friend who wants more, but to who you are not attracted
Mr. “You’re Like A Sister to Me”
The friend you want, but who is not attracted to you
Mr. “Do You Wanna Go Back To My Place?”
The guy who would rather get you into bed than take you out to dinner
The Smooth Talker
The guy who always says all the right things (that could mean you are not the only one he say them to)
The “good on paper” guy. Usually the one your parents like more than you do.
Mr. Chronically Unemployed
Has no intentions of finding or holding down a job.
He’s all talk, no action.
Anyone who carries a man purse
Mr. Failure to Launch
Still lives at home with his parents for no good reason.
