Life is a great teacher, but a bad date is truly a professor. This list offers a starting point for your tutelage in avoiding the bad while looking for the good that eventually turns ugly.
What man doesn’t enjoy a cerebral opponent? What man doesn’t want a woman who has an opinion, has a personality and can participate in a conversation or debate on just about any topic? Of course a hot body is a turn-on, but a true Player recognises a hot mind and a blazing personality. These are the absolute aphrodisiacs. A woman with verbal confidence is a true catch. But when confidence is locked on contentious and confrontational, you should make plans to avoid her. The Smart-a** drips sarcasm. She enjoys answering and asking questions with a tone and an attitude that pushes away the nicest of suitors. Her words drip with venom and her personality is based on making others feel beneath her.
2. The Gold Digger
All men have experienced the effort to bring together their physical, spiritual and financial aspects. In the process of courting, you will pay for flowers, go out to the movies, take the weekend for trips, and lay the world out before her. However, while you spend with emotion and desire, make sure your newfound lady is enjoying you rather than your money. Gold Diggers will eventually show their colours when they begin expecting you to pay for everything including her bills. Going for broke in a relationship is far different from going broke, Player. Remember that.
3. Ms Right
While the description may make you scratch your head, it’s not what you think. A sign of a true Player is the appreciation of something good. So if this was Ms Right for you, I would give you the green light to pursue. But this is Ms Right, as in Ms Always Right or Ms Has To Be Right. This lovely lady can have a host of great qualities and characteristics, but she has a stubbornness for being correct that turns off any man and turns any relationship into a disaster — that’s why she makes it into the five types of women to avoid. She has to be right about anything and everything to the point that your slightest word had better be in agreement with her’s.
4. The Psycho
A broad category with many entries, the Psycho includes the girl who calls, texts or posts to your Facebook wall ten times a day. It includes the girl who wants to know your every move and asks how you’ve been when she just spoke to you an hour ago. If there is any woman to avoid at all costs, the Psycho is the one. She will insert herself into your life and shake all aspects of your existence. It is easy to fall for the Psycho as she brings an intensity and a passion that is borderline supernatural. Remember, though, that sex with a psycho may be amazing, but at some point you’ll end up in front of the police. If you fail to look at her from all aspects, you’ll end up with a bothersome, insecure and potentially vicious woman who will show no signs of going away.
5. The Rebound
She is most sinister on the list because she is the most difficult to detect. We have all heard the warning of the “rebound guy,” but what about the female counterpart? Like the Psycho, this girl tends to come on strong, hot and heavy. Her seductive ways could weaken some of the strongest Players. Falling into her traps, you’ll bypass your better judgment and fall hard. You believe that this is the one; you believe that this is a great relationship in the making. But the truth is that you were just a lay, just a sexual encounter to help her past the man who recently broke her heart.
