Weird Men Worth Avoiding | How To Spot A Bad Date At 100 Paces

Updated on July 15, 2009

Some men are weird, but they're not the men who think they're weird. In fact, if you're worried that you might be a weird man, I have some good news for you, chances are you're not. The weird man has no inkling of the fact that he is weird, which is what keeps him mired in the pool of weirdness.

The following are signs of the weird man. If you spot these in a potential date, run many miles. The price you pay for getting involved with a weird man is your peace of mind, your self esteem and precious weeks, months or even years that you'll never get back.

As I mentioned earlier, the weird man does not know he is weird, instead he simply thinks that he has very high standards. No women have ever lived up to these standards, aside possibly from some genetically related to him (his mother or sister, usually.)

The weird man may be intelligent and verbose, but he is rarely witty and usually only laughs at his own jokes. He loves to hear himself talk, and loves to write long missives to anyone who will read them (and often those who won't.)

The weird man believes himself to be of above normal intelligence, and believes that all other humans on the planet fail to understand him. If people find him rude and offensive, its not because he is insensitive and rude, its because they can't handle the truth. As a corollary to this, the weird man may also consider himself inordinately talented in some fashion, in spite of any evidence to support this idea.

The weird man will put women off in a variety of ways. If he does meet a woman silly enough to fall for him, he will attempt to tear down her self esteem and her sense of self worth by pointing out her numerous failings. He is incapable of real compassion and may believe that he is 'helping' his partner by continually criticizing her. In reality, he is a toxic personality and normally ends up alone.

The weird man often itemizes the perfect woman. He knows what she looks like, how she smells, what her spiritual beliefs are, he has constructed an image in his mind that no woman will ever live up to. A weird man doesn't understand that women are humans with feelings and emotions, instead he regards them as a means to fulfilling his desires. He believes that only he is able to create the perfect woman, because yes, even the dream woman he imagines is not quite good enough, she will have to hang on his every word and follow all his directions in order to meet him as an equal.

In short, the weird man is any man who regards himself as being a superior being, who believes that 'ordinary' women are not good enough for him and who will lead an unfortunate lady on a dance comprised of jumping through flaming hoops in order for her to prove her worth to him. You will know the weird man after just a few minutes conversation, or sometimes, if you're lucky, the very moment he opens his idiot mouth.

      This might sound weird , but some three or so years ago I had a woman colleague who PERFECTLY fits your description of the "weird man". Nobody (including myself) could stand her. She believed that she had superior knowledge and that her thoughts were ahead of her/our time. She loved to hear herself speak and monopolized debates, and enjoyed putting others down...I could go on and on...I had never met such a person before, she was the first of her kind and hopefully the last :-)

      I've been out with a man like all what has be described above! It explains a lot. Because you think your going crazy and your the ugliest person in the world. But then you open up your eyes and relise the person is a waste of space and needs help not me!

      I'm with you there, I use to be. But I realized, my momma did'nt raise know dumbing. And finally found the courage to use the natural logic that was always within me. Thanks again.

      Here's my opinion. Everyone is weird... Including me.

      But... According to the first paragraph if I think I'm weird then I'm probably not. By extension, I'm probably the only person who isn't weird on the planet! ;)

      Flawless logic. :)

      Thats why you should date a man who wears lingerie. We will tell you how pretty you are, find the right clothes to accentuate your body type. We will notice when you have a new eye shadow or have changed your hair slightly. Finding a woman who can appreciate our feminine side is like finding the Holy Grail. I've found mine and she doesn't look anything like the "perfect" woman I created in my head all those years ago and I've never been happier!!

      I really liked this hub. But I might add, it is us woman that have a low self esteem that fall for such men, thinking we can help them change there ways (of thinking.) Also in defence of men that have this very problem, I would like to add that somewhere down through their life they were hurt something fierce and built walls around themselves, and now they can't see through to the other side. And us woman out there to have been hurt and built walls and became lowly and sometimes desperate for love. thanks again for this hub.
