According to men, not all women are who they seem once you get to know them. The most beautiful and intriguing woman can often become someone you want nothing to do with. Recently, men revealed everything that can make a woman go from "potential partner" to someone with countless red flags. I think we can all learn a lot about relationships here today!
1. They Don't Like Your Friends
It doesn't matter if you're a teenager in high school or an adult in the prime of your life; it always hurts when your significant other doesn't like your friends. A man holds his friends near and dear to his heart, and a woman who doesn't share his enthusiasm and love for them, in many cases, means she won't be around for a long time.
2. They Live in a Fantasy World
Some women act downright narcissistic and delusional, and even the prettiest and most sensible person can be ruined by these traits. "I dated this girl who thought everyone was copying her, and it drove me up a wall," confesses one man.
"Stuff like, 'I just think it's funny how everyone started wearing Nike right after I bought these shoes.' No amount of explanation could change her mind on this." Some people genuinely live on another planet!
3. They Constantly Complain
Granted, a tendency to constantly complain can make anyone go from a ten to a zero, but men reveal that it's especially telling when a woman exhibits this behavior. According to them, once the complaining starts, it never ends! As someone who had the unfortunate luck of dating a serial complainer, I can attest to this scenario.
4. They Are Mean to Animals
Why are some women mean to animals? It doesn't matter if a man's dream girl walks into his life; the moment a woman is cruel to an animal is when she is no longer desirable. Besides, if a woman is mean to animals, it's often an indicator she's mean to people, too!
5. They Have No Hobbies
Interestingly, men don't necessarily look for women who are homebodies. For many, a woman who doesn't have her own hobbies may infringe on the man's current lifestyle. "I don't want someone who wants me to entertain them," reveals one man. "I want someone who has their own life and friends and doesn't feel abandoned if I want to spend time on my own or go out with my friends."
6. They Treat Restaurant Staff Like Dirt
According to countless men, nothing is a bigger turn-off than a woman who treats restaurant staff poorly. You can tell a lot about a person's true character by how much they tip, how they speak to servers, and if they constantly ask to see the manager. Not only is terrible restaurant behavior embarrassing for everyone involved, but it's also often the tip of the iceberg. If a woman treats restaurant staff poorly, you could be next.
7. They Exhibit Manipulative Behavior
There's one type of woman no man wants anything to do with: The manipulator. "There's a woman at work who is recently divorced that I had been crushing on, but lately, she's been bragging in the lunch room about her dating adventures and how she's been using every man who shows interest in ways such as getting everything paid for at nice restaurants.
Or having groceries bought for her, or having some guy come and do handyman stuff for her at home for nothing, then she cuts contact," explains one extremely long-winded man. "I'm glad I keep my distance and survey situations before jumping in like I used to do." It sounds like he dodged a bullet!
8. They Are Addicted to Their Phones
Whether it's a social media addiction or a lousy texting habit, men confess that a woman glued to her phone is a turn-off. These men profess that women need to learn to live in the moment.
After all, your phones aren't going anywhere, and there is plenty of time in a day to be on them as much as you want. Just make sure not to do it at the expense of a man.
9. They Make Fun of Your Insecurities
Women heed this advice: If you're making fun of a man's insecurities, it won't matter how attractive he thinks you are; you will drop a few notches in his book! "She could be the hottest and nerdiest woman around, but the moment she makes fun of my stammer would instantly be a major turn-off," admits a newly-single man. Leave the teasing in high school where it belongs.
10. They Are Spoiled
For many men, spoiling a woman is one of the simple pleasures in life. However, if a woman crosses the line and demands to be spoiled constantly, she can be best described by a single phrase: High maintenance. No man wants to deal with a woman who constantly gets what she wants.
