How to Avoid Picking Mr. Wrong

Ladies, there are a list of men to watch out for that may appear to be a perfect catch on the outside until you get a deeper look on the inside. Here are some tell-tell signs to watch out for.

The Eyebrow Raiser

These are ones that speak to you matter of factly on every subject and never breaks that level of “I know more than you” attitude. Bobbing their head at you as they speak. They find it hard to connect with you on an emotional level so they throw out a bunch of useless facts instead. Unless you want to become more proficient in the art of crossword puzzles this is not the man for you.

The Ring Bearer

If he's married and you have full knowledge of this you have already broken the cardinal rule in dating. Sure they're witty, handsome, debonair and know how to treat a lady. But you know how they got that way don't ya? Because their wifey has trained them. These men are already broken in by some other lady tamer and you're just marveling in their creation. So quit while you're ahead before someone cracks the whip on you.

Dragon Breath

This guy needs Trident and pronto! If he can’t manage his borderline halitosism stop dead in your tracks! Hold your nose and walk away. If he isn’t worried about his breath Lord knows what else he's unhygienic about. For all you know he smells good and looks nice today because it was time for his weekly grooming. Once he’s got you in his clutches you’ll soon find the pigsty behind the man.

The Weight Lifter

If he spends time in the gym more than being with you chances are you will come second to his muscle milk and biceps. Undoubtedly, if he has worked this hard to put on the bulges that he possesses he will not let all that turn to mush for you. It's awesome to have someone physically fit and ripped but if he prefers to sleep with his dumbbells rather than you then who's the dummy for sticking around?

Mirror Chaser

Enough said. There won't be enough mirrors in his house. If he looks prettier than you he will probably try to continue to outshine you. It's okay for a man to want to be presentable and hot but if he's into himself way more than you make a run for it. You won't change his vain ways and sooner or later you’ll get sick of it being all about him, him, him.

Now that I've armed you with some heads-up tips on what to beware of, go out there, follow you're intuitions and catch you a good one!

"Mirror Chaser" Haha!

I read the topic and I thought "Oh another dating advice hub" But I couldn't resist clicking on it because it was by one of my favorite writers! And I'm glad I did because it sure did tickle my funny bone. Just what the doctor ordered to light up a weekend morning.

....thank you for your wonderful sense of humor - luckily for me, lol, I don't 'fit' any of these categories - lol - but you certainly fit into a category of your own as a first class writer - and here I sense that you are having a bit of fun but at the same time there is much perception and truth here.

You better not be JThomp42! Make yourself a checklist and mark off what you are. I'll allow room for error so if you have checked more than one you need to reinvent yourself. Haha! Thanks for the vote. Have a wonderful day!
