5 Types Of Toxic Men To Avoid Like The Plague (Run Away NOW)
Take a moment to think about the worst date you’ve ever been on.
Maybe he spent the whole time sobbing about his ex, perhaps he shared his weird fetishes with you or maybe he even surprised you by introducing you to his family.
Yes, that happened to me once.
As bad as some of these dates may be, if there’s one thing to learn from them, it’s that there are certain kind of guys to avoid when it comes to romance.
Hey ladies, Amy North here. I’m a relationship coach from the West Coast of Canada. I specialize in women’s relationship coaching.
Today I want to share with you some insights about the kind of toxic men to avoid when it comes to dating.
1. Mr. Self-Righteous.
The first kind of guy you should avoid is Mr. Self-Righteous. These types of men are controlling, bossy and opinionated. They put themselves on pedestals and have a habit of belittling others opinions.
Self-righteous men tend to be arrogant know-it-alls. Unless you want to be told what to wear, how to eat and what to believe in, skip these egocentric guys. After all, healthy, loving relationships are based on a mutual respect for one another and self-righteous men only worry about one person, themselves.
2. The Barbarian.
The second kind of man to avoid is the barbaric man. Now, when you hear about barbaric, you probably think of some primitive, unsophisticated beast of a man. The type that takes what he wants with little regard for others. Well, that’s more or less what this kind of men do.
Flashback to modern times, these are the kind of guys you see in college movies and sleazy nightclubs. They are the bros who brag about how many notches they have in their bedposts and who holler at women on the street.
Needless to say, they lack respect for women and speak and act crudely around them. In some ways they may even be considered misogynistic. Unless you want to put up with their sexist views and savage ways, avoid this type of guy like the plague.
3. Mr. Self-Pity.
The next kind of guy you should avoid is the self-pitying man. He’s the “woe is me” type and thinks that the whole world is out to get him. He sees the cup half empty and usually has something to complain about. Nothing is ever good enough because he’s the unluckiest person ever.
In reality, he just thrives on sorrow. You can usually guess what you’re going to get with this type of guy and that’s a gloomy experience. Self-pitying guys tend to fear spontaneity because they’re so caught up in their ways. They crave sympathy and may even be a bit masochistic.
Unless you want to feel like you have a little black rain cloud lingering overhead, self-pitying men are toxic.
4. The Rage Monster.
The fourth type of guy to avoid is the angry man. These types of guys are the hot headed and quick to pick a fight. When you spend time with them, you’ll find yourself on a defense, because to him, everything is an argument or debate. What’s worse is you’ll have always to worry about what’s next. Like a loose cannon, a night on the town could quickly turn into a street brawl, or a quiet evening in, may end in tears.
While it can be nice to date someone so passionate about their opinions, be careful not to confuse strong convictions and deep-rooted rage.
Simply put, unless you want to walk on eggshells 24/7, don’t date this kind of guy.
5. Captain Need-A-Lot.
The last kind of man you should avoid is the needy one. Sure, it’s nice to feel important to someone, but these kinds of guys are like leeches and will suck the life out of you. For instance, he may give you a hard time anytime you make plans without him or make you feel guilty when you leave him behind. He’ll want to spend every minute of every day with you, and when he can’t be physically close to you, he’ll blow up your phone with texts and calls. You won’t be able to make a move without him knowing your exact location.
While it’s nice to feel cared about, needy men kill the romance by being cling-ons. Unless you want someone to need you insufferably, don’t date these types of men.
Now that you know what types of men to avoid, you can stop wasting your time on men that probably won’t work out.
