Dating is tough. Everyone has their own preferences and dealbreakers, so it’s hard to find your perfect match. What if there were specific characteristics that some men admitted they’d rather not deal with when looking for a partner? Well, take a look at these candid confessions from men who shared the types of women they consciously steer clear of, even if society often portrays them as ideal.
1. Self-Involved Women
One man says that some women have an excessive interest in themselves, to the point of mental illness. Such women often film themselves, take a lot of selfies, and often post on social media.
They cannot see anyone else’s point of view and gaslight other people. They aim to control the narrative to ensure people form a particular opinion. For example, the worst moms could create posts that present them as parents of the year.
2. Those That Generalize
Another commenter suggests avoiding women who say, “All men are trash.” Such women tend to have underlying issues. If you look through their social media, their mental health problems are evident.
No matter how hot a woman is, avoid her if she has narcissistic traits. A responder says that if you observe that she has extreme highs and lows, pulls away at random times, and gaslights you, move on. Narcissistic women often try to make up after every fight, then repeat the same thing. They lack empathy and will make you lose yourself slowly if you continue putting up with their behavior.
4. Drama Queens
No one likes a drama queen. A man states an adult female colleague once clapped her hands while talking about something. They did not necessarily disagree with her, but she pulled out the dramatic effects.
From then on, they take everything she says with a grain of salt and try to limit engaging with her. This is because they think she has a lot of mental baggage that she must clear up before participating in any normal functioning conversation.
5. Obese Women
Several men in this forum allege that the fat acceptance movement is disgusting. It’s not about shaming. One states that they don’t mind women being curvy, but they draw the line at obesity. It is a real health problem. Just because social media tells you being overweight is okay doesn’t make it so.
It’s often a marketing scheme to sell you lingerie. The whole fat movement is a group of people justifying destructive behavior. While treating overweight people unkindly is wrong, encouraging them to take zero accountability for bad habits does not help.
Do you enjoy the princess mystique? These men don’t. One elaborates that if snow is on the driveway, his woman must be outside shoveling it beside him. They need to be a team that shares the load. She needs to forget about men’s or women’s work; it’s all work, and they must do it together.
7. The Haters
“Haters gonna hate.” A man shares that he avoids women who make fun of others. They observe others and make sly remarks. He doesn’t like it when people make unpleasant remarks about another person’s appearance. People are just living their lives like we are.
8. Superficial Women
Multiple men confirm that women who openly say they want to marry a man with money are unattractive. One man shares they have a coworker that says this. Initially, he thought it was a joke and enjoyed listening to her talk.
He went along with it for the laughs before realizing she was dead serious. It grew annoying, and he tried to convince her it was not all about money. However, he failed, and she still dreamed of marrying a man with lots of money.
9. Attention Vultures
A common theme in the forum is that men avoid women who need to be the center of attention. One man explains he once went to a birthday where this woman made everyone do whatever she wanted as soon as she walked in. She did not care to wish the host a happy birthday; she immediately started controlling the music and games.
As if that wasn’t enough, she said the food and snacks at the party sucked, and she wanted to order food. If anyone disagreed with what she wanted, she would throw a hissy fit and complain till she got their way.
Another man says he’s not looking to get yelled at by a woman just for existing. Most women are great, but there are those who, for one reason or another other, hate men. So occasionally, they unleash all their pent-up frustration for men on a single guy who’s just minding his business.
