Dating can be fun, but oftentimes we have to weed out the freaks before we find the ones worth our time. Some guys have idiosyncrasies that are just too much to handle, but what are the real red flags that should send you running in the completely opposite direction? Here are some deal breakers that we think warrant an instant end to the relationship. These guys mean trouble:
This guy plans dates with multiple girls at a time even when you’ve been seeing each other for a couple of weeks at minimum. He claims he’s keeping his options open, but what that really means is that he has commitment issues and that he’s somewhat of a player. This guy definitely is not ready to be in a monogamous relationship, so get out before you get hurt. Keep your eyes peeled for his constant checking of text messages and any smirks that may cross his face while he responds.
Like the cheater, this guy won’t be straight up with you. He’ll ignore certain topics you bring up and will try to immediately change the subject. If he can’t look you in the eyes when you ask him what he did that day, then there’s a problem. This should send you running in the opposite direction before he ends up lying about something much more serious than his daily routine. Obviously this guy has major skeletons in his closet, and you won’t want to stick around long enough to find out what they might be.
A cheapskate is cheap. He’ll take you to dive bars and pinch pennies even if he’s not on a budget. Eventually he’ll be asking you to foot the bill or join forces when the check comes. Offering to help out with costly dating expenses is only fair when you’re in a serious relationship, but if he requests that you foot the bill on the first date, then politely move on.
The Napoleon Syndrome
This is the short man with the big mouth who feels the need to be outspoken in order to make up for his vertical challenge. He’ll most likely end up embarrassing himself (and you) when you’re out in public because of his need for attention. Plus, we’d never want to date a guy who has serious underlying issues with insecurity. Confidence is the ultimate form of sexiness.
