Have you ever gone out on a date, gotten your hopes up and wound up getting ignored? Have you ever thought you hit it off with a guy only to end up with wishy-washy, vague answers to every important question you ask? This is what ends up happening when you waste your time on men who just aren’t worth the energy.
Honestly, with how hectic and chaotic the dating world can be, it can seem impossible to find a guy you actually want to date.
And yet, as time goes on and you still haven’t found a guy, you might be tempted to cut back on your expectations just so you can date somebody .
Well, don’t do it for any of these types of guys. These 18 guys are just flat out not worth wasting time on:
Take The Quiz: Is He Selfish?
1. The guy who “doesn’t know how he feels”
Oh, you’re not sure how you feel about our relationship? You’re “not sure” if you see a future with us in it, but you want to “try anyway?” How about you “try” to not let the door hit you on the way out, jerk. Make up your damn mind.
2. The guy who doesn’t want to use “protection”
I mean, really? What a trashy guy. I know it “feels better” without a condom, but if we’re going to take that step, we’re going to be a lot more committed to each other than we are now. Take a hike.
3. The guy who’s always broke
Look, I’m all for equality. I think that men and women should do whatever they feel comfortable with on dates, whether that means splitting the bill, or one party taking it.
But if he’s always “short a few bucks” for dinner, or the movie, or the cab fare, and expecting you to cover it for him, he’s not dating you, he’s using you. Dump the zero and find someone better.
4. The guy who tricks you into believing he cares about you – right before you find out about his “other” girlfriend
Dude. I’m a grown woman. If you didn’t want to be exclusive with me, that’s fine. But don’t lead me on and tell me how much you care about me while dating someone else at the same time. It’s called being considerate of other people’s feelings, something you clearly know nothing about.
5. The guy who starts out texting you a lot, then disappears for like 2 weeks, then comes back and acts like nothing is wrong
I mean, do you even want to be with a guy who’s this inconsiderate? Newsflash: every single man who uses the bathroom sits on the toilet and looks at his phone. He’s got time to text you back, he’s just choosing not to.
6. The guy who expects to receive oral sex but doesn’t like giving it out
Listen, jerk. We learned that sharing is caring in like the first grade . Why expect something from me that you’re not willing to reciprocate on? Take your crappy 1800’s attitude and go watch porn, because I’m not interested.
7. The guy who can’t pick up the phone and call – only text
What, are you afraid to talk to me on the phone? Do you need 30 seconds to compose the perfect message, rather than, you know, actually just talking to me like a person? If he won’t even talk to you, why would you want to be with him in the first place?
8. The guy who can’t plan a date for the life of him
Ever plan on meeting up with a guy, then you wait all day for him to text you, then at like 5pm when you text him seeing if he’s still coming he says he’s with a friend and “maybe” he can hang out later? Yeah. That guy is crappy, he’s not worth waiting around for, and he should date his friend for how much he wants to hang out with him.
9. The guy who’s always posting club shots of skanky women and bottle service
ok , so you know he hooks up with a lot of trashy women, blows all his money on overpriced expensive booze he could get at a fraction of the cost elsewhere, and is obsessed with his image. Why would you want to date him again?
10. The guy in his mid 30’s who’s still terrified of commitment
Look, it’s one thing to expect that kind of fear of commitment in a 20-something, but dude, you’re pushing 40. Drop the scared teenager act and act like the adult you’ve clearly failed to become. Get your freaking life together.
11. The guy who you know won’t ever commit… but he’s so cute you want to keep dating him anyway
This guy is the worst . It’s especially terrible because you know you’re doing it to yourself, and yet you can’t drop the hope that maybe he’ll settle down… even though you know he won’t. Do yourself a favor and drop this guy before you get really hurt.
12. The guy who’s a manipulator through and through – and he’s so good at it you’re worried he’s a sociopath
If you’ve been with a guy and caught yourself getting jealous, or tearing your hair out, or playing into his hands again , and you’re not normally that type of girl, it’s safe to say that he’s manipulating you for his own gain. Creepy. And not boyfriend material.
13. The guy who flakes out on all your plans
I’ll give a guy a little bit of leeway. If he flakes out on plans because of “an emergency” or something, that’s fine, I’ll cut him some slack. But if he does it over, and over, and over, well, who wants to be with someone like that? Do you really want to be with a guy who treats random crap as more important than keeping a commitment to you? I didn’t think so.
14. The guy who only cares about taking you home that night
He’s so sweet, and thoughtful, and caring towards you – when he’s trying to get you to come home with him. But when you say no, because you’re not feeling it that night and want to get to know him better, he suddenly disappears and you never see him again. Thanks a lot, guy. Really helping
