10 Types of Women to Avoid When Dating

Thanks men are dorks for the idea!

I've already written about the 10 types of men you don't want to date, so I think it's only fair that I cover the women too. These women cliches will easily make dating hell for you, with their shallowness, insecurities and otherwise clingy qualities. We've all got baggage and craziness underneath our calm exteriors, but some chicks take it a little far. You'd best look out for these, for your own sanity.

Here are the top 10 women to avoid dating:

"Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger..."

1) Miss Gold Digger - obvious, but this can go deeper than you realize. Once she thinks you're worth something, she may stop doing anything including work and school because she thinks she's got it made. She'll steal your car if it's nicer than hers and will even put her bikini waxes on your credit card (awkward!).

2) Miss Cling-On - she has an obsessive need to be chummy with all your friends, she shows up at your poker games with cucumber sandwiches, and whines if it's been 2 hours since she's seen you. Somehow she finds out about your golf games and just shows up on the green (to the horror of your friends). You know you've got a Cling-On when she's even willing to sit through a 16 hour Star Trek marathon to be next to you.

3) Miss "Loose" - also known as Party Girl (see reality television). She cheats on you when she's drunk and claims it doesn't count. Most nights end with her puking on your Vans, and it takes about 4 dates to realize this chick needs rehab (or Bret Michaels). She's usually wearing 20 pounds of makeup on her face and the lowest cut shirt you've ever seen--that's how she sucks you in!

*cough* Nothing further needed...

4) Miss Crazy Moody - every day, she accuses you of something new, whether it's cheating, not caring enough or forgetting to tell her how pretty she is. She gets crazy jealous even when you glance at the elderly woman in front of you at the bank, and her moods range from insanely happy to insanely depressed...in a 45 minute period.

5) Miss Desperate
- this one NEEDS a boyfriend so bad that she's willing to put anybody in that slot, even the homeless dude on the corner. She aims to please, but in the way that she doesn't have her own personality...for fear of losing you. If you threaten to dump her, she'll either sob for hours and beg, or she'll name off all her guy friends who want to date her, just to make herself feel better.

6) Miss Insecure - if you're not doting on Miss Insecure every minute, she thinks you don't like her anymore. She'll tell you she loves you 6 times each day and needs to hear it over and over again from you, otherwise it'll end in tears. Her constant need for reassurance makes you want to stab your own eyes.

Miss Crazy Moody wants to know why you didn't call 5 mins ago!

7) Miss TMI - she treats you like her best friend Carly, and therefore will sit on the phone with you for a zillion hours, telling you every single solitary detail about her day. This includes what she had to eat, everything she bought at the mall, her PMS status, her theory on eyelash curlers, why she needs to lose 5 pounds, and it's around that point that you went to the kitchen and made yourself a sandwich. If she understood men any less, she'd be an alien life form.

8) Miss ___ Tease
- the worst part about her is not that she doesn't put out, but that she acts like she will and then doesn't. She's possibly the least real of the bunch, and her whole goal is to mess with guys to build up her self esteem and feel wanted. Don't mistake her for girls who won't sleep with you and tell you that straight up.

9) Miss Really Independent - unlike Kelly Clarkson, this girl will never let a guy do anything for her and always wants to be in charge. She takes female empowerment way too far and gets offended if you open a door or be nice to her. Other women hate Miss Really Independent for ruining male chivalry for the rest of us.

10) Miss Romcom - she's saving herself for Prince Charming, and wants her life to look like Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video. She's wholly unrealistic in everything she wants and you doubt she's even ever dated before. If you don't show up in tights with a single rose on your first date, she has a cow.

That was fun to read! Between do you think that all women have a little sprinkling of these 'qualities' in us too?

I'm not a man, but you're right. These don't sound the least bit appealing.

And I watched the first season of the Bret Michaels train wreck. You are right about them--every one of them!!!

I have known a lot of these girls!!! Thankfully, I don't fit into any category. Though, I agree that we all have a little bit of each in all of us. It's the balance that's important.

Thanks all for the comments!

nazishnasim: Oh yes, I definitely think us women have a little bit of these (and other craziness) in us...we all have our flaws! The problem is when one of these traits encompasses everything about the person. Anna Marie Bowman put it nicely too- it's all about balance!

cindyvine: Totally agree. Those could easily have been on the list too!

Thank you Ray! Sometimes I think we're better able to see the faults in our own sex than the opposite...

Thanks for pointing out that it's not always the guy's fault. There really are girls/women who bring this level of neurosis/insecurity into the relationship. A little bit of any of these characteristics is to be expected -- we are, after all human -- but when people become charicatures of themselves, whoa.

You're welcome, Mighty Mom! Men aren't always the messed up ones...I believe in equal opportunity :) There are just as many women with major issues as there are men. And the rest of us are only minorly messed up!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Man O Man....Great post....

It should be used as a enewsletter and sent to all those hapless chaps out there...


Anyway, a suggestion to the girls:

-->! Why don't you list down 10 categories of men?

maurice  7 years ago

What about a women think you should take of her finachaliy cause shes a female do everything .while she sits at home then get mad cause your never there . but you have to work double time cause she wont work or think she don't have to . then she wants a devores cause your never there . why not build or work "TOGTHER"

Maurice, you're talking about a little bit of Gold Digger, but you're onto something else too. A woman who expects to be taken care of, but gets upset because you're never home (since you're working so hard) sounds like she's immature. Or she may be the "princess" type of woman who wants everything to be handed to her. Either way, those are women to avoid too!

Thanks for your comment!

I love how women like to say they don't like cheap men when they themselves are the cheapest things on two legs except when it comes to buying themselves shoes, jeans or stupidly expensive hair-care products. We men are expected to buy them gifts on valentine's day, flowers every now and again, the engagement ring ($2000???) and pay for most dates. I'm sorry, I thought women had careers and incomes of their own now. I'm not paying a woman for her company, if I was into that, I'd hire a hooker.

Great post! "Even the homeless guy around the corner"

Tom Hawk: I laughed out loud at your hooker comment, which was a great way to bring your point home. I hear what you're saying, and I agree that men paying all the time isn't fair. There are women out there who don't expect that (I'm one of them, though I do think a guy should at least pay on the first date), so go out there and find them!

ptosis: Thank you! I'm sorry if you were offended by that part...I promise I mean no ill will. I sometimes use exaggerated example to show how ridiculous something is, so take those phrases with a grain of salt :)

Poor Scorper! Unfortunately a lot of women make the mistake of being Miss TMI because they're unaware that men aren't as detail-focused as women are. Thanks for your comment!

If I might offer another category: the sex addict. this girl will do anything immediately, and while i get that some guys like meaningless sex, others of us don't, and enjoy the company of a woman who is makes herself more than meat. for one thing, you certainly cant date the sex addict, she'll trade you in for 4 guys she finds at a club in an instant. and that's only if you see her again; most likely she will disappear from your room and you will never see her again.

Ive met girls like this (never spent more than 5 minutes with them, thankfully) and they aren't worth all that time. even if one manages to hold onto them for more than a few nights, they turn into the psycho/drama queen, or the clinger who wont let you have your own friends (male or female) but has 40 male "aquaintances."

PS: thank you for being willing to write an article on what type of women to avoid, I know women who think anything even slightly negative towards women should be illegal, especially when its true. the first step towards fixing a problem is recognizing it. men are by no means perfect, but we are more constantly reminded how horrible we are. its good to see something going back :)

Good one Dan! I've never met a girl like that, but I'm sure they exist.

Also, you're welcome :) I believe in equal opportunity, so it was only fair to write articles about both men and women to avoid. Annoying people are annoying people, regardless of their sex!

Great article! seeing both sides of the spectrum is so important. For the man or the women in the relationship. We need more articles like this out there. I think that the men and women that are not ruined by the crazies end up finding that right person eventually.I know this because everyone around me has. ha I'm still waiting but in the mean time I would love to read more articles. Keep them coming! :)

How about Miss User...?

You know the woman who knows a guy is into her but she herself will never be into him but keeps him around knowing he will jump through any of her hoops, meet any of her demands, thinking this will win her heart, all the while she is banging other guys while the dumb schmuck whose always there for her gets a dose of

Zero Cool 4 years ago

Save me!! I get her hot and cold thing.. 2years together. I can't bear to read her SMS messages...wait that's when she has phone credit...then wallah a message about how she feels and how I am the worst person alive, then the next day she is sorry & loves me & again im the best man in the world!!... Then I do something nice from my heart, she thinks i did it for some other ulterior motive.. Then she wants to stand on her own two feet (Ms Independent)... Next thing you know I wasn't there, when she fell on her ass..But she loves me to bits (and hates me with passion) and I love her too... Maybe this is true love, i don't know???? Definatly our spark can cause a fire.. Learning about women is ESSENTIAL...take the things said and done all with a grain of salt and be there for support to lift her up but DON'T jump into the hole with her...because you then can't help each other..

All that's important is peace.. If something they say is too far fetched or fanciful go with it. Be cool about her emotions because if you delve to deep and try rationalize everything you will go crazy guys... Give her exactly what she needs and BE PATIENT lol

Zero Cool- Your relationship sounds very volatile. Which is fine, if that's what you're both into. Me, personally, I prefer less drama and more sturdiness in a relationship. Thanks for sharing your story and insight. I agree that men should learn about women in order to best understand us and our needs.
