A “hot guy” may bring more to the relationship table than his good looks — he might be cocky as hell. He might know just how gorgeous he is and use it to take advantage of you.His smile might catch your eye, his baby blues might flicker in the light and he might be ridiculously attractive, but that doesn’t mean you should date him.

  1. He might end up being more into himself than into you. Do you really want to be with someone like that? There’s a difference between loving yourself and being in love with yourself, and unfortunately he could be the latter. He should be able to just look in the mirror rather than gaze into it with more love than he’ll ever show you. Good luck with that.
  2. Are you a jealous person? If so, the hot guy’s probably not for you. If you know how hot he is and he knows how hot he is, other women will probably know it too. If you’re not the type of girl who can control your jealous rage, then maybe you should reconsider your options. A green-eyed monster isn’t attractive and it won’t make the other women go away. Sometimes a hot guy just isn’t worth the trouble… especially when he wants you to compete for his attention. Pass.
  3. Confidence can very easily become cockiness. You wouldn’t want to be with a guy who thinks he’s God’s gift to women. It’s one thing to be confident in who you are pertaining to both looks and personality, it’s another to find yourself flawless. There’s a beauty in the flawed but there’s nothing beautiful in the man who thinks he’s perfection. If he tends towards the latter, there’s trouble.
  4. He could be shallow if he thinks looks are everything. You’d never know if he’s interested in your mind or just your body. If he’s not looking for his second half, just a girl who can match his good looks in a picture, then he probably won’t care about your thoughts and feelings, just how good you look when he takes you out. Love is more than physical attraction, but a guy who’s obsessed with appearances wouldn’t know.
  5. Maybe he relies on his pretty face and there’s not much under the surface. He might be hot, but those good looks could come at a high cost if he’s lacking personality. You’re looking for a guy you can grow old with, but guess what? Good looks fade. You know what lasts? A good personality. Look for a guy who makes you laugh, someone you can have a real conversation with. He might look good now, but do you really want to sit next to Mr. Boring forever?
  6. He’ll probably make it all about him. What do you need? Who cares? He might not. You want to be a priority in his life, but maybe his only expectation is for you to prioritize his every need. His good looks have given him a lot in this life and that could lead him to expect a lot from you too. If that’s the case, you’d have to be ready to do all the work in that relationship, and that’s just no good.
  7. He probably won’t ever feel lucky to have you. Yet he’ll likely expect you to feel grateful that he even graces you with his presence. You want a guy that looked through all the fish in the sea and only wanted you, but is that him? Mr. Hottie might be good for your orgasm, but what if he never truly makes you feel appreciated?
