Love. You know that it’s this really amazing feeling that you want for yourself. You know that it’s going to be like nothing you have ever experienced in your life. You know that you eventually want to fall in love with someone with whom you can build the rest of your life. You know that love might be the best thing that will ever happen to you.
But did you know that the road to true love isn’t easy?
It can be very emotionally exhausting whenever you enter the world of dating. You have to make yourself vulnerable to a certain extent. And sometimes, those risks don’t really pay off. You put yourself out there and you take your chances on a few guys. But they aren’t always going to be the right ones for you.
It’s so easy to get duped into falling for a guy who is all sorts of wrong for you these days. There are so many male predators out there who are only looking to use, abuse and manipulate the women that they’re with. That’s why you need to make sure that you always stay protected. You know that love means opening yourself up to risk. But you still need to keep yourself guarded at all times.
Sure, you might have to navigate through a few bad relationships in order for you to get to know yourself more. You might have to learn a few things through bad relationships that you wouldn’t really learn anywhere else. Not all of us are going to be so lucky to find love at the first try.
And while it might be heartbreaking to go through these “wrong” relationships, you shouldn’t have to worry too much. You will always have a chance of finding love for you. You are truly deserving of it. And one day, you are going to find a man who is going to be able to provide you with everything that you have ever been looking for in relationships.
However, you can’t be wasting your time either. You are deserving of love but that doesn’t mean that it’s just going to fall into your lap. You need to actively fight for love. And part of fighting for love means knowing when it’s time for you to walk away. Whenever you find yourself in a relationship with someone who is just wrong for you, then you need to detach yourself from that.
There is no point in just staying in a relationship with someone who truly isn’t worth it. Yes, relationships are going to require a lot of work, patience, and understanding. But at the end of the day, it is not your responsibility to try and change someone. There are just some men who you need to be avoiding altogether so that you don’t end up getting hurt, scarred, and heartbroken.
That is why it is absolutely essential for you to be keeping yourself aware of the various red flags that exist whenever you date these men. If you practice on spotting them early on in your dating life, then you are less likely to become invested in someone who is only going to hurt you. You will be better equipped to keep yourself guarded against men who will only wreak havoc in your heart and life.
You want to stay away from all kinds of toxicity because you don’t want any of that negativity seeping into your soul. You only want to be entertaining the kinds of men who you know you have a legitimate shot at finding true love with.
You don’t want to be investing too much of your effort and time into someone who is only going to cause you some serious pain and disappointment. That’s why it’s important to steer clear from these kinds of guys. That’s why you always need to stay vigilant.
These are the types of men that you need to avoid dating at all costs.
1. The Immature Man
It takes two fully matured individuals to make a relationship work. If a man is too immature, then he will fail to see the importance of the things that actually matter in a relationship. And whenever that is the case, it is you who will end up doing a lot of the heavy lifting. And that’s just not good or sustainable at all.
2. The Workaholic
Okay. We have to be very clear about this. You always want to be with a guy who is ambitious and hardworking. However, there is a difference between being hard working and being a workaholic. You never want to be put in a position wherein you are competing with your man’s professional life. He should be someone who knows how to prioritize the different aspects of his life.
3. The Playboy
This is the kind of guy who is just never going to commit to you. He is afraid of tying himself down to a single person for a prolonged period of life. That means that he won’t really lock himself down with you and that’s only going to breed a lot of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty. It’s a very toxic environment whenever you get into a relationship with him.
