The quest for love can be brutal. In the search for love you encounter many different types of guys. Some are definitely better than others, and there isn’t anything worse than realizing you’re wasting your time with a guy that just isn’t worth your time. Sure, it’s good – it’s even healthy – to date different types of people. This is how you learn about yourself and what you do and don’t want out of a relationship and from your partner. However there are some tell tale signs that you need to look out for while you’re dating.
He Randomly Disappears
If the new guy you’re dating likes to pull a disappearing act, you probably need to consider saying goodbye. Sure everyone gets crazy busy every once in a while, but in today’s world it takes literally seconds to talk to someone. It doesn’t take too much time or effort to send a text or make a call. If he really likes you then he will want to keep you in the loop, but if you find yourself trying to track down your new flame then it’s time to cut your losses.
You need to be weary of the guy that is highly critical of you in the beginning. Dating is about getting to know someone and having fun. If in the beginning he is already criticizing, insulting or (God forbid) calling you names you need to tell him to take a hike. He is showing you his true colors and quite frankly, they’re pretty ugly, don’t you think? Consider this, if he is already being critical of you this early in the game just imagine how critical he will be of you down the road? Doesn’t look promising. Respect yourself enough not to let anyone devalue you.
He’s Super Clingy
Who doesn’t want a guy that is totally into you? It’s a great feeling! However, there’s a thin line between being totally into you and being completely too clingy. The guy that needs to be around you every minute of the day and blows your phone up when you’re busy is not worth your time. This type of person is exhausting because they completely drain you. You don’t want someone who is going to smother you. You’ll be so much happier with a man who wants to be around you because he truly enjoys your time together, instead of needing to be around you to validate his happiness.
Little to Zero Effort
There are few things worse than dating a guy that puts little to zero effort into your relationship. It takes two people putting in the effort in order to make any relationship work. Anything less than that is just pointless. You want to be in a relationship with someone that equally wants to be in a relationship with you. Otherwise it just simply isn’t going to work no matter how hard you try. Your time is not worth being with someone that refuses to put forth effort.
None of these types of guys are worth your time. You and your time are valuable and should be treated with the respect you deserve. When dating keep these in mind and try not to overlook bad behavior from men just because you really want to be with him. When you love yourself first and realize your happiness is important you won’t even waste your time on guys like the above again.
