Love is hard, as are relationships, especially with all these dating trends such as ghosting and love bombing. And to top it off, there are some really bad types of men you should avoid like the plague, because they will make your life a living hell.
Even as you’re reading this now, someone popped into your head and you can remember the hell he put you through. I’m sure that you even know more types of men to add to this list but these are the worst of the worst.
1. Freshly out of a relationship
These men are never ready to fully commit to you and give you what you need and that’s a steady and healthy relationship. He’s too stuck in the past to look to the future. Maybe he’s just using you as a rebound girl or he tried to hide the fact that he just got out of a relationship, which is even worse.
He’s not honest with you from the very beginning and you can’t expect a healthy relationship if it was built on dishonest foundations.
The worst thing he can do to you is lead you on until you fall in love madly and deeply, and just when you think that you’re getting there, he’s not ready to move on. He’s not ready for another serious relationship and the moment he realizes it, he will ghost you.
2. Unambitious men
Men who have no ambitions will always hold you back. They’re perfectly fine with being stuck in one place, doing nothing and living from day to day. You can’t expect a future with that kind of man because he’s not interested in working for it.
And even if you try to motivate him, you’ll just end up losing your own motivation. There’s nothing less attractive than men with no ambitions, especially these days where you need to put in one hell of an effort to make your life good.
3. Men with anger issues
One moment he’s fine, the next all hell breaks loose. Men with anger issues will hide this for as long as they can but you can actually see the signs of this. If something isn’t done his way, he gets all nervous, pissed and he shuts down completely.
He’s not interested in talking about it, he’s not interested in looking for a solution. And trust me, the only thing he’s interested in is screaming and punching something. If you ever come across this type of man, run for your life, because who can say that one day you won’t be the one he punches?
Unlike unambitious men, they are all about work, success and putting in huge amounts of effort. But what happens when you need him to slow down and just to enjoy the moment with you?
For him, work is the only priority in his life. He can tell you that it’s not like that but when you need him, he’s at work. When he’s late to dinner, you know he’s at work. When he leaves you hanging, you know he did it because of work.
And you can’t expect him to make you and his relationship with you his priority, because work is the only love of his life that he’s willing to make sacrifices for.
5. Possessive men
These are the men who act like emotional leeches. Because of their possessiveness, they slowly take away everything you care about. When you want to spend time with your friends, he guilt-trips you into staying with him.
When you need to see your family, he either goes along or makes you stay home once again. They’re good at manipulating and getting what they want, which is you. And he practically has no life of his own, so he takes away yours as well.
He will act all clingy and needy, while justifying it with being so in love with you that he can’t think about anything or anyone else.
