There are many types of guys I’ve dated in the past that I now wouldn’t go near even if my life depended on it. I’m not only older and wiser now but I’ve also learned way too much about life and love to even waste my time—and so should you.
Guys who don’t wow me
If he doesn’t have the wow factor, don’t bother sending him my way. Gone are the days where I’ll just settle for the average guy because he’s “nice” or “safe.” Not anymore. Give me fireworks and burning loins and butterflies or I’ll have to show him the door.
Guys who aren’t wowed by me
Look, I’m not saying I’m a complete 10 out of 10, but I want a guy who thinks I am. As well as him doing it for me, I have to do it for him. Obviously. I don’t expect to be the center of his world or anything, but if he’s not crazy about me, what’s the point of being together?
Guys who aren’t monogamous
I’ve been there and done that when it comes to the whole bad boy thing—so much that I feel like I’ve got five thousand t-shirts. You think you can be the one to change them, but guess what? You can’t. A bad boy is always going to be a bad boy—and now I have too much respect for myself to let one treat me like crap and mess around behind my back.
Guys who treat me like a second mom
What is it about me that makes guys think that I’ll do their laundry, run their errands, and generally pick up after them like their mothers used to? That’s not what any woman signs up for when they agree to be in a relationship with a man. If he wants to act like a boy, he should move back home and let his real mother take care of him. Leave me out of it.
Guys who think they’re hilarious
I have a great sense of humor and can totally take a joke, but for once it’d be great to attract a guy who doesn’t think he’s starring in his own one-man comedy show. Sure, I’ll laugh along if he’s cracked a joke and I find it hilarious. However, he shouldn’t crack a hideously unfunny and/or sexist joke, get zero laughs from me, and then be in stitches. It’s a huge turn-off.
Guys who send one-word texts
“Haha” or “OK” is not an appropriate response to a text message, OK? Is it a short attention span, a breakdown in communication, or pure laziness as to why guys can’t send a decent reply to my heart-felt messages these days? Also, an emoji doesn’t count. Give me a guy who can effectively and openly communicate with me when we’re apart from each other and let me forget the rest.
Guys who make me second guess myself
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I need constant reassurance from my latest beau, but the odd compliment or comment that makes me feel good is always much appreciated. I’ve been with guys previously who have been mega sketchy when I asked them why they keep mentioning the female colleague from work or can’t tell me that I look beautiful when I’m all dressed up for date night. In the past is where I’m going to leave those guys—they’re really not worth my energy.
Guys who can’t open a door for me
What on earth happened to old-school male chivalry in a relationship? If he can’t even pull my seat out for me at the table while we’re dining out, talk to a server like a human being, or be selfless in any way, shape, or form, then I’m afraid that he’s not the one for me.
Guys who spend longer getting ready than me
Now, I’m all for guys looking after their appearance—I mean, personally, I’d rather have them polished than scruffy. However, if he takes longer with his daily bathroom routine than I do, I might start to worry. I also can’t stand tardiness, so if he’s constantly late due to not being ready, he clearly cares more about himself than me—and that’s not attractive. Boy, bye.
Guys who don’t know what they want
I’ve lost count of the number of guys that I’ve been in almost relationships with. And you know why they were almost relationships instead of actual relationships? Because the guy in question didn’t have a clue what he wanted. Guys who go back and forth about commitment are guys that I don’t want to associate with. In fact, I’m finding that I’ve added a few different types on my list of guys to avoid recently—and do you know what? I’m OK with that. It’s all about sifting out the rubbish to get to the hidden gem of a guy underneath.
