Relationships aren’t for the faint of heart; you are required to bare your soul to someone and pray they reciprocate. You’re expected to compromise a lot (sometimes at your own expense) to ensure that the relationship is kept afloat. If that’s not enough, you also have to go through the tedious task of making sure that you don’t wear your heart on your sleeve for the wrong person.
Women have it the worst. Society is riddled with swine who pretend to be gentlemen; and because not that many of them exist, we often find ourselves falling victim to deceitful boys who only want to get in your pants.
But don’t fret, there’s a glimmer of hope.
Below is a list of the worst types of men you
absolutely have to avoid!
This is a man who’ll run for the hills at the
very mention of “feelings” or emotional
attachment. He doesn’t handle “we need to
talk” very well. It’s not your fault that he’s
not yet mature enough to handle the
responsibilities that come with being in a
relationship – he’s still a boy, and if he’d
rather “kick it” with you then kick his spineless
ass to the curb.
This guy right here is a flirt, he can’t help
himself. He has several side-chicks under his
playboy belt and you’re probably one of them.
He’s insecure and probably has to contend
with a “small” issue that has nothing to do
with you. With him you’ll always be an option, never a priority.
THE STAND – UP GUY
If you have no problem getting stood up at the
last minute after all the effort you put in to
looking and smelling your best, then this guy is
a good gamble. He won’t hesitate to send you
a Whatsapp message cancelling on you an hour
after he was supposed to pick you up for
dinner; the common excuse being “Something
came up. Sorry”. That’s how little he thinks of
MR “I’M THE SH*T”
He’s just not that into you because he’s too
preoccupied with being into himself. He’s a
narcissist, and he keeps you around for those
rare occasions when he needs a brief distraction from how amazing he is. He’s always talking about himself, and when he isn’t, he never lets you get a word in because what you have to say is insignificant. If you have no qualms with being someone’s protégé, this superficial bastard is your Mr Right.
THE TEDDY BEAR
He’s not called a teddy bear because he’s cute
and cuddly, but because he’s a big softie. He’s
overly sensitive and dramatic and blows the
smallest things out of proportion.
He also doesn’t take sarcasm very well
because in his mind, every statement is a
personal attack on his character. A thoughtful
man who spoils his woman is attractive; however, a man who’s constantly smothering you and is clingy is a turn-off.
THE NO – SHOW
He talks a good game, shares his dreams of
living lavishly but the only problem is that he
STAYS seated on his arse! He’d find a job if he
bothered to actually look for one, and it
doesn’t help that he has expensive taste which
he expects you to maintain. You are only
useful to him because of what you’re able to
provide for him financially. RUN!
MTWANA KA MA (MOMMY’S LITTLE BOY)
One of the most pathetic forms of man there
is. Being family-oriented is one thing, but this
guy takes the notion too far. Here’s the truth
ladies, if you’re dating this guy then be
prepared to always come second.
He’s the type of man who’ll find any reason to
run to his mommy dearest for advice over the
pettiest nonsense. She, on the other hand,probably doesn’t even like you because she
either feels threatened by you, or thinks that
you’re not good enough for her “precious
You can’t compete with that kind of
attachment, so why even bother?
The married man is a definite no-go! He made
a sacred vow to another woman and has a
family. Contrary to what you might choose to
believe, he will never leave his family for you.
You only spite yourself by being with him,unless you’re cool with the “side-chick” title.
