There are good women out there in the dating world, but they can be hard to find. If you’ve been on the dating scene for any length of time, you have probably dated your share of different types of women, good and bad. Women who come off as crazy might be great in the short term, but in the long term, you want a woman that isn’t a high maintenance drama queen.
If you’ve ever asked yourself or your friends why you can’t seem to meet a great girl, then perhaps you’re not meeting the right kind of woman. For example, you should beware of the Chameleon – a woman who molds her interests and hobbies after yours. The Chameleon changes her hobbies and interests so that she seems like the perfect girlfriend.
The Chameleon claims to have the same interests to make it seem like you have a lot in common. This type of woman has no real interests of her own and changes with each relationship. Also, be on the lookout for the Queen of Desperation. This type of woman wants to get married as quickly as possible and doesn’t care how long it takes to drag you to the altar.
We live in a world where there are no two women alike, so it’s best to try your luck in finding the right woman for you. Along the way, you will meet and possibly date any variation of the women on this list. Here are some dating tips that involve a non-inclusive list of women you should avoid at all costs.
1. The Co-Dependent and Needy Woman
The co-dependent woman is the type to insist that you have to do everything together. While this may seem great at first, this doesn’t allow for any time with your male friends. The Needy woman wants to spend every waking second with you and won’t understand when you tell her that you need some time with the guys.
When you suggest that she spend time with her friends, she goes nuclear in an argument that seems to last forever. During this epic battle, she might ask you 800 times if you still love her.
Having independence is the key to long-lasting, healthy relationships. Clingy women don’t want you to have independence and will try to capitalize on your time. When dealing with a clingy, needy woman, it’s best to be adamant about your independence or walk away.
2. The Drama Queen or Narcissist
We have all seen the type of woman who needs to be the center of attention in any given situation. This woman will create drama where there is none and should be avoided like the plague. No matter if you’re at home, at the home of friends or family members, or out at the clubs, this woman wants everyone’s eyes on her.
At first, the Drama Queen might seem cute and boisterous, but don’t let that fool you. After going out with the Drama Queen on several occasions, you will notice that her behavior hasn’t changed.
If she’s annoyingly loud, focused on drawing attention to herself and dressing provocatively, you’ve just encountered a full-blown Drama Queen. Unless you like loud, spoiled brats, stay far away from this one. She will expect you to treat her like the center of your world, but she refuses to reciprocate.
3. The Gold Digger
The Gold Digger is only interested in the expensive cars, watches and houses that you have. Naturally, she’s tunes her radar to notice extreme wealth and only gravitates toward men who have a high net worth and a lot of zeroes in their bank accounts.
The Gold Digger might offer you a compliment on the car you drive or instantly ask about your profession upon meeting. She will immediately size you up and guess your net worth based on your clothes, possessions, mannerisms and job status.
Run away, fast, from the type of woman who only sees your value in the amount of money in your bank account. This woman will make a snap judgment on you in five seconds and she doesn’t care about your personality or learning anything else about you.
Gold Diggers are easy to spot because from the moment you meet, they begin asking you about financial matters. A good woman cares that you have a job and a car, but a Gold Digger wants a man with an expensive late model car, a high paying job and a house or two (if not more).
4. The Second Mother
When you were a young guy, your mother always fixed your hair and tucked in your shirt. If you’re dating a woman who mimics these activities, then you’re involved with the Second Mother. If your girlfriend can’t resist the urge to wipe your face, fix your hair or nag you to pick up your socks, then you may want to reconsider the relationship.
Motherly instincts are hard-wired into women and it can be sometimes hard for the Second Mother to let you be an independent that takes care of himself.
Despite her best intentions, it may be best to walk away from a woman who reminds you of your mother. The one you have relations with should never remind you of the woman that gave birth to you. That’s just not cute!
If you’ve talked it over with the Second Mother and she’s unable to change her ways, it might be best to keep your distance. If she treats you like a child, then you have no other choice but to man up and walk away.
5. The Motor Mouth
You’ll be able to recognize the motor mouth rather quickly in any given situation. This type of woman has no filter and will talk to anyone about anything that pops into her head. If you find a Motor Mouth, the chances are high that she’s rambling on and on about silly or mundane topics.
If you don’t want to hear complaints about people you’ll never meet or hear incessant babbling on topics that don’t interest you, your best bet is to leave this one where you found her.
Even worse than your average Motor Mouth is the one that only wants to carry on a conversation about herself. If she bores you to death with one-sided rambling, it’s time to find someone who will actually have a conversation with you.
6. High Maintenance Princess
The High Maintenance Princess is a woman who has perfect hair, makeup, nails and is easily spotted in a crowd of women. This type of woman matches the color of her shoes to the color of her purse, nail polish, hair accessories and belt.
The Princess has expensive taste, because nothing is too good for Daddy’s Little Girl. She’s the type of woman that will cause you to be late wherever you go because she has to spend two hours in the bathroom getting ready.
You’ll be able to pick up on the High Maintenance Princess when she asks for the best wine at restaurants or wouldn’t be caught dead drinking water from the tap. The Princess isn’t comfortable in dive bars and only wants to be seen in the trendiest spots in town.
7. The Overemotional Crier
The woman who cries at the drop of a hat is someone you need to distance yourself from quickly. The Overemotional Crier drowns herself in tears at the slightest inclination that things aren’t going her way. She was obviously not taught proper coping mechanisms in order to handle tough situations.
If you don’t enjoy being on a never ending emotional roller coaster, point this woman to the nearest therapist and run like the wind. We’re not talking about a woman who tears up at an emotional movie, but a woman who cries at every bad situation is not one you’ll want to consider in the long term.
8. The Beautiful Bimbo
Looks matter when finding a woman to date. Looks are the first thing we see when we encounter women, but they should only be part of the bigger picture.
Combined with a great personality, education and job, a well-rounded woman is a force to be reckoned with. The Beautiful Bimbo is great if you’re merely interested in a fling, but you can’t expect to have a long-term relationship with a gorgeous moron.
In healthy relationships, you should be able to have inspired conversations where your girlfriend can elaborate on matters of interest to you both. If she can’t offer any commentary above that which is superficial, it might be time to cut bait and run.
Beautiful women who are smart and have great jobs are like unicorns, so if you’ve found one, count yourself lucky. More often than not, you’ve got yourself a Beautiful Bimbo. It’s fun – for now, just as long as you don’t try to have a meaningful conversation with her.
9. The Argumentative Debater
This type of woman is only interested in proving a point and will argue with you until her last breath. All relationships should have some sort of debate in order to stay fresh and exciting. It’s a red flag when the woman you’re dating brings up an old fight about something you said January 22, 2014 at 10pm at night after watching the news.
If she usually begins conversations with, “So let me get this straight,” “First of all,” or “If I remember correctly,” then the chances of a fight are high on her list. The Argumentative Debater has made it her business to argue with you until her dying breath.
When encountering this type of woman, tread carefully. If she has made it a habit to argue with you, it may be a sign that you’re dating an arguer. To debate with a woman is a sign of a healthy mind, but to constantly fight is something that no one should have to endure.
10. The Cheater
The Cheater is a woman who obviously doesn’t care about the man she’s dating. Of course, there is redemption for women who have cheated in the past, but chronic cheaters are more likely to continue this pattern of behavior.
If a woman admits to cheating on several ex-boyfriends, then she might be proud of deceiving these poor schmucks. Unless you want to end up in a relationship with someone who doesn’t value you enough to be honest with you, leave this one in the dust.
If have any doubts about whether or not a woman is cheating on you, use every resource to determine the truth. If you suspect she is cheating, then listen to your gut instincts. Relationships are about trust and without it you’ve got zilch.
Don’t Despair – Good Women Are Out There
If this list has you turning away from the dating scene, don’t fret. All women aren’t bad and this list should serve as a guide to keep you from making bad choices in who you decide to date.
You may notice that your girlfriend possesses some of the traits listed above, but it doesn’t make her bad girlfriend material unless things are taken to the extreme. Don’t categorize her as a Gold Digger if she thinks your car is nice or likes the type of work you do. It’s only when things are taken to the absolute extreme that causes red flags to pop up.
You can’t make a Beautiful Bimbo read a book just as much as you can’t tell the Drama Queen that the world doesn’t revolve around her. In both cases, these women will look at you like you’ve got three heads and say, “Huh?”
Good women exist, but it all boils down to what you’re willing to deal with in a relationship. Healthy relationships involve give and take on both parts with honesty and respect freely given. Keep an eye out for the women listed above and you’ll avoid more headaches than you can imagine.
