You are the hottest chick in town and your popularity is at its peak in the college. And when that’s the situation, you know how easy it is for guys to fall for you.
However, it’s wise to be choosy about who you are going to hang around with. If you are looking for a relationship, then it helps to keep away from these kind of men.
Delicate darlings: This man think he has to be handled with care. There’s no masculinity whatsoever about this guy. If your guy spends more time in front of the mirror and beauty spas than you, then you know what to expect — he would much rather admire his style than look at you. So no compliment for you girl!
Judgmental: Although it’s easy to say get into a relationship with an open mind, this man draws his conclusions based on your past life. He will convince you with his theories that will make you die of guilt.
Sports is my first love: Or so he claims. Yes, we all know men love sports than anything else and given a choice between going to a theatre with you and watching a sports event, he will definitely choose the latter. No matter the crisis, he wouldn’t want to fix it until the match is over! Girl, you won’t get his attention for sure.
Stingy: There’s absolutely no sense of chivalry in him. He would not like to spend a single pie on you. He wouldn’t even agree to go dutch. It’s you and you spending all the way. In fact, you would be expected to provide for all his needs including, food, clothing at times even shelter in terms of paying rent for his apartment!Now, why would you want to do that?
Never content: This guy is constantly cribbing about you. He has a problem with most of your qualities — be it your hairstyle, the way you talk or even giggle. He will make you feel miserable.
A happy past: This guys rests on his past glories. He’s forever talking about what a great football player he was and how he is a gift to the mankind. He can go on and on about his past achievements but refuse to talk about the task at hand.
Self-centered: He’s so full of himself. At every given opportunity, he will want to establish the fact that he’s better than you. You don’t want to end up feeling like a burden to Mother earth!
Deceptive: He’s the flirtatious type and would want to woo every good looking girl on the planet. If you don’t want to sing ‘Unbreak my heart’ like Toni Braxton, then stay away from this guy.
Possessive types: A guy telling the girl ‘you were born for him’…rings a bell?Yep! heard this before in film songs. However, it sounds good only on reel and not in real life. It’s good to know someone loves you so much, but not to the extent of giving up your personal space. He hates it when you want to holiday with your BFF. He wants all your time and attention to himself. Already feeling suffocated? You bet!
Suspicious devils: Irrespective of how loyal you are to him, he has a feeling at the back of his mind that you are still in touch with your Ex, you are cheating on him. He detests you talking to other men. He hates to see you happy. He constantly fights with you over a trivial issue such as keeping your phone busy. Spare yourself the horror!
Mission possible: Dating this guy would be disastrous to say the least. It means giving up self-respect. Although he fell in love with you for your style, he will change all that about you soon as you begin your relationship. Only a few months into the relationship and you already feel like a different person. There’s nothing ‘you’ about you. You have stopped being yourself so much so that you practically cease to exist! Your friends tell you how much you have changed since you started dating the guy. He decides your hairstyle, wardrobe, the books you read, music you listen to, movies you watch and even the people you hang around with… Phew! Where are you?
