Dating may bring you valuable experiences and insights into what types of guys are out there. It helps you precisely determine what you like and don’t like in possible partners and relationships. However, the quest for that “someone” may be difficult. It may get to the point where you’re prepared to settle for anyone. Overlooking some features you genuinely don’t like so that you can finally claim you’re in a relationship. You’ll understand that there are just a few things that you should not put up with anymore. The truth is that there are some sorts of men you should avoid at all costs. While you may or may not have been involved with someone of their caliber in the past, there is still time to adjust your methods and become more aware of their eccentricities.

 1. Married men

Absolutely, unequivocally, and altogether a resounding “NO!” First and foremost, he’s already taken. He made a vow to someone that he would keep through thick and thin till death did them part. Second, how do you expect this to play out in your situation? And what happens if his wife finds out about it? Being with a married man has too much drama that you don’t need to be a part of. The water is teeming with fish of every kind. There are still excellent, honest, intelligent, ambitious, hardworking, socially *and mentally* balanced guys to be found among the general population.

Don’t give up hope just yet! It may take some time to identify the right person for you. Like the old adage says, “patience is a virtue,” in no time you will get your match. The throngs of lazy, deceitful, self-absorbed, selfish, greedy, and lying jerks you encountered daily will be long forgotten.

 2. Narcissist

Most women have been in a relationship with a man who insists on having things his way or the highway. He is under the impression that the world revolves around him. Consequently, he has an enormous ego since he does not feel that anyone can compete with him. He is highly disciplined, determined, and self-assured, making him quite appealing to women drawn to him. Unfortunately, after spending some time with him, he becomes obsessed with himself and cannot stop talking about himself.

The Narcissist exhibits unemotional traits disregards others’ feelings and has an excessive need for admiration. He’s constantly bragging about his triumphs and appears to take offense if you try to point out his mistakes. The egoistic man enjoys pulling you down at every opportunity as this makes him feel bigger and better than you. The egoistic man is complicated, if not impossible, to be in a relationship with, and should be avoided at all costs.

3. A man child

Most women are drawn to men who are either older than them or the same age as them is reasonable because most women enjoy being cared for, pampered, and led. The more mature males are capable of doing this most of the time. It’s true that not every grown-up man is fully grown in his mind; some have bodies that are 30 years old but minds that are 18 years old. The man kid enjoys being adventurous, having a good time, and acting like a teenager. He would disappear the instant you faced a significant life problem or simply a setback. You should avoid such a man at all costs since he is utterly inept at dealing with real-life issues.

4. A mama’s boy

It is one of the kindest and most understanding individuals you will ever meet. He’s a true gentleman who is considerate, especially women. It doesn’t come as a surprise, given that he is his mother’s favorite and hence understands feminine thoughts fully. His attentiveness might appear to be a breath of fresh air to you, given the fact that most men are incapable of comprehending feelings.

However, there is a drawback: his heart belongs to another lady, specifically his mother. Most often his mother is involved in every part of his life, including his fashion selections, residence, and even finances. Building a future with a mama’s boy would be detrimental to your interests since his mother would have the final say in anything you two do. To make matters worse, attempting to persuade him to choose between you and his mother will fail since he will almost certainly choose his mother.

5. A gold-digger

When a guy is just starting in life or has experienced a financial setback later in life, he may be considered financially insecure. If you’re in a relationship with him, it’s OK to support him at these times. If he is not financially stable and makes no attempt to become so, it is best not to enter into any permanent or long-term partnerships with him. The gold-diggers are often well-dressed and smooth-talking gentlemen of the world.

However, they are not concerned about their financial situation. As they believe that any lady would fall for them and be prepared to provide financial assistance for them. Whenever he comes across a financially secure lady who has fallen prey to his attractions, the gold digger feels like a very entitled man. He will look to her to keep his clothes with good taste, feed him, and guarantee that he lives in a pleasant environment. He should be avoided at all costs since the gold-digger is well aware of and understands the maternal side of life and how to exploit it to his advantage.

6. Mr know it all

For the sole purpose of hearing himself speak, he transforms every interaction into a dispute. It appears that he has read every book you have ever mentioned and that he has done research on this and that. When it comes to things he has yet to learn, he cannot take things in his stride. He’ll put up his best battle to prove to you that he does know everything. And what happens if he loses? Prepare yourself for the ensuing outburst.

7. The needy guy

In addition, he comes up with flowers on every date, messages you throughout the day and night, prepares for you from scratch, and is just all over fabulous till you discover that he’s wildly clinging on your shoulders. He’s insecure at his core, and he relies on you to continuously reassure him that he is valuable. Indeed, the gestures are thoughtful, but can you picture yourself needing to satisfy your husband for the rest of your life?

8. Mr serial husband

This man is the polar antithesis of the perpetual bachelor in every way. He enjoys the excitement of being married, but this individual is incapable of managing or even remaining in a marriage. As he considers marriage an item that he may remove or replace whenever he wants. Thus, he gives up and goes on to the next person as soon as the sparks and romance have faded away. As the serial spouse is fascinated with the new, when his marriage begins to seem a little stale and familiar, he swiftly goes on to the next bright and shiny new woman. Worse, the serial spouse will always blame the other person for the error; it is never his fault when things get dull or obvious.

In his perspective, his previous spouses were never ‘the one,’ and he believes that if he meets “the one,” he would be in a state of perpetual infatuation for the rest of his life. As a rule of thumb, you should see red flags for any man who has an extensive list of ex-wives on his resume.

9. Mr bachelor

Mr bachelor is charming, well-mannered, beautiful, successful, and humorous on most occasions. This individual has a special rapport with women since he has only been with a small number. He will pamper you with fine dining, sweep you off your feet, and make you feel like the most important woman on the planet. His single status and lack of marriage may have you scratching your head, but it’s because he believes that no woman is ever enough for him, and commitment is his worst adversary.

The eternal bachelor is difficult to resist; therefore, it’s better to stay away from him entirely. No matter how hard you try, he knows what to say and do to entice you into his clutches. He’ll go off as quickly as his legs can carry him the moment you realize you’re in a relationship with him and are ready to commit to him. Having a relationship with this man is like running in circles; you’ll keep going but will never make any progress.

 10. The control freak

Being in a relationship with a man who takes control is far different from being with a man who controls you. A guy who asserts himself as a good leader, capable of managing and leading a relationship, a family, and any other scenario in which he finds himself. On the other hand, a dominating man continuously asserts his authority. He’ll make an effort to maintain control over your social life, living circumstances, and entire personal life.

A controlling man would constantly try to lord it over you and frighten you; he’s a control freak in his own life and would undoubtedly extend that trait into his interactions with other people. Domineering men are frequently envious of their female partners. Their controlling personality is commonly motivated by feelings of insecurity and fear. They never feel comfortable unless and until everything happens as they want it to. If you feel controlled or oppressed at any time throughout your relationship, you must end it immediately.

11. Mr emotionally unavailable

Although most men lack the emotional intelligence that most women possess, everyone should strive to be open and honest in their emotional expressions to some degree. For you, understanding how the emotionally detached person feels about certain things, or whether he has any feelings at all, would be a significant issue. As a result, communicating with him would be more difficult for you. The emotionally unavailable person may even continue to harm you without your knowledge. Therefore, you should try and avoid getting too involved with such a person. If you want to be in any meaningful relationship, you should stay away from the emotionally absent male. This person will always keep you at arm’s length. He may even forget your feelings at times, just as he neglects his feelings in the same way.

12. The lazy guy

This specific individual is simply irritating, as he is constantly taking and hardly ever giving. It is not because he is self-centered, but instead because he is too lazy to put up any effort. Suppose you realize that you’re always putting up the majority of the work to keep the relationship running, continuously remembering anniversaries, setting updates, and honoring the lines of communication open. In that case, you’re probably dating a lazy man who doesn’t put forth much effort himself. A breakup may be the best course of action if you are continuously concerned that the relationship will wither and die without you. As long as there are two individuals involved in the relationship, it is expected that both sides would put out an effort to keep it continuing.

The takeaway

Many of us avoid dating the types of men that are excellent for us and instead wind up with the ‘bad boy’ sort of man who will live up to his moniker description. You will spare yourself a lot of heartbreaks if you opt for a person that is level-headed and nice when playing this dating game. Be careful of the man who promises you the world and always under-delivers. He’s promising you huge things, and he’s got big plans, but at the end of the day, he’s just saying what he thinks women want to hear to get their attention. Do not ignore any red flags that you come across, all in the name of giving someone a chance.
