We all have had experiences of men who are unworthy of us–who may have manipulated or used us–because they were only out for number one. Here are some types of men to stay away from if you don’t want to make the same mistake twice.
1. The Seducer
This type of person takes on the persona of who he thinks “you” want him to be. He is a slippery character, and you cannot take what he says as true. If it seems like it is TOO good to be true, it probably isn’t; what he says about you and himself is not sincere.
2. The “Fake Giver”
Have you met those people who seem to want very little for you but seem to enjoy giving? People like this may be authentic, but a good relationship is about give and take. And those who give too much usually become resentful or are like martyrs. Time to see which one you are involved with.
3. The Liar
Sometimes when the overall package looks good–good job, good family, good friends–we may overlook the “little lies” that come from them. Actually, there is no such thing as a “little lie.” A lie is a lie, is a lie, is a lie. If someone distorts the truth, he can’t be trusted. Never push that fact under the rug.
4. The Withholder
Why does being in a relationship with this person feel like you are trying to get them to do things they don’t want to? That’s because they don’t really care about how you feel. The sooner you become aware of that, the better.
5. The “Too Busy to …”
Someone who is always busy is a red flag. People who really want to be there for you are. When you feel like they are at the top of your list, but you are on the bottom of theirs, take that as an indication that you are NOT important to them. Move on; you will meet someone who will see how special you are and treat you that way.
