It's a tough dating world out there, we've all dated the wrong guy, unless you're one of the minorities who actually ended up with their childhood sweetheart. These will either bring up some funny, if not slightly cringe worthy memories, if you haven't dated these men then use it as a warning for who you should never date...
1. The 'just out of a relationship' fella.
This gem. They'll promise that you're not a rebound but then say her name whilst you're having sex, and end up crying when you happen to wear the same perfume she did. Stay clear huns, this one may be a good guy, but he's still emotionally someone else's good guy.
2. The overly sensitive guy.
He takes everything you say to heart and it's really f*cking draining. No sensitive Steve, me saying I don't fancy Chinese food tonight does not mean I don't want to date you anymore. Although, now you mention it, I don't want to date you anymore.
3. The mummy's boy.
No guy will ever match up to mummy dearest, and their relationship is verging on inappropriate. He's a grown man, he doesn't need you wiping his mouth for him. Vom. Also, he expects you to look after him like she did, you're not his mother, you don't need to do his washing for him.
4. The Mr. always right.
Contrary, stubborn and argumentative are not traits you imagined 'the one' having. And he won't, this guy is not who you end up with. Having a healthy debate and exchange of ideas is brilliant, but if he doesn't even take your opinion seriously, then that ain't right. Also, car journeys are a nightmare and a constant stream of "I told you it was right at that junction". FFS STFU.
5. The married man.
Kind of self explanatory. He spun some story of her being an evil witch that feeds on children, when in reality, she's probably a lovely supportive lady wondering why her hubby always has to work late. Don't be a home wrecker, you're better than that.
6. The lazy sh*t.
He spends all day on his x-box, smokes a lot of weed, and doesn't understand the need to get a 'real' job. Great if you want to live the same lifestyle, but if you've grown up and left the uni lifestyle where it should be left, at uni, then this man-child isn't Mr right.
7. The utterly obsessed with you guy.
There's a difference between being madly in love with someone, and being just plain mad. He'll confess his love on the second date, text you 50 times a day, and makes it really really incredibly hard to ghost him.
8. The player.
Hate to break it to you girl, but you're not going to change him. Because no one will, he'll only change when he hits his forties and his looks fade.
9. The blow off.
Mate, how hard is it to stick to a plan. He has no trouble organising dates, but cancels them like there's no tomorrow, always last minute. You're not a top priority, and he's only scheduling a date with you incase his plans fall through. Say bye bye to that f*ckboy.
10. The commitment-phobe
He isn't emotionally mature enough to be in a relationship, so as soon as it starts to get serious, he'll run a mile. He acts like he cares and shows you that he has feelings, but when it comes to actually talking about said feelings or labelling them, he's off as quick as Usain Bolt. Avoid at all costs.
