Before you conclude that he is Mr. right, pause and check for some signs. Some men are really cute and charming from afar but underneath is a toxic man waiting to prey on your innocent self. Since you don’t want your heart broken and ego destroyed, it is advisable that you pause to see beyond the nice gestures, roses and dinner dates.
Here are 4 types of men to avoid dating:
1 The egoistic
These men are so full of themselves and would make everything about themselves. They always want to be seen, heard and revered so highly. They seek to have all the attention coming their way and do not mind bringing down anyone that tries to drag the spotlight with them.
Their appearances and how people perceive them matter more than anything and they always seek to please people just to come across as nice. Avoid men like tis because they would never prioritize you.
2 The mummy’s boy
These ones would often come across as nice and sensitive to your needs but would only put you second, after his mum of course. Sometimes, it is as a result of how strong their mum had to be while raising them but it is unbearable if he can’t make decisions without his mum.
Also, some mummy’s boys have been spoilt. Their mum does all the cooking, laundry and run the errands so they expect you to also do all this. There is a thin line between catering for your partner and being a maid, pay attention to these signs.
3 The control freak
If you do want to be drained emotionally, mentally and physically, stay away from a man who is a control freak. These ones would always want to have a say in everything that you do from what you choose to eat, to what you choose to wear.
Having a man who is a leader and can take charge is different from having a man who is obsessive and controlling. They are often manipulative; they make you think everything they are doing is because they have your best interest at heart. Stay away from men like these so that you don’t lose yourself.
4 The man who puts in no effort
These types of men claim to love you but would put no effort into making you feel loved. They would leave you to always do the reaching out, date planning, messaging and most things that require efforts.
These men would often have excuses and would require to understand their effortlessness. Avoid men who would leave doing all the giving and getting nothing in return. It will leave you drained and tired.
Before falling head over heels for that man, it is important that you pay attention to the red flags. It is better to stay single than to find yourself in a toxic and frustrating relationship. These signs are always evident, do not be in a hurry that you push them aside or maybe hope that someday he’ll change. Remember, you are not a fixer.
