We are surrounded by people looking for love. But, if you’re looking for a healthy and long-lasting relationship, try avoiding these dates no matter what!
1. The Hot and Cold Daters
At one moment they’re all over you, the next minute they’re annoyed at you. And you’ve no hints why it happens. The next day you keep wondering what you’ve done that made him/her irritated towards you. And the cycle continues. It’s obvious that the person you’re with now actually wants to spend time with you, but he/she has no clue what they are looking for in a relationship. If you want to be in a healthy and long-lasting relationship, find someone who is stable and consistent.
2. The Playful Daters
These types of dates are the most frustrating. These men and women absolutely won't commit to any dates in the future, let alone be a stable, long-term boyfriend or girlfriend. If you’ve met someone, and he/she tells you that ‘they will call you or meet you later,' it’s best for you don’t pursue them. Either they aren’t interested in you or are simply having a hard time making decisions because of their insecurities.
3. The Hanging Out Daters
These types of dates are always surrounded by their friends, and by all of them! You may find him/her alluring, super-sociable, funny and full of life at first, but over time as the relationship progress it becomes tough to be intimate with them, as his/her buddies are always around. It’s okay to say that this person is taking advantage of his/her friends to keep him from getting emotionally connected with you. Nothing serious will come out from this relationship, you better leave!
4. The Serial Daters
If you’re really serious about being in a relationship, don’t date a guy or gal, who is just looking for fun and not ready for commitment. Sometimes we get lonely and tell ourselves that dating a person not right for me is better than being alone. That’s not true. It’s worth waiting for someone right for us than wasting our love and energy on the wrong person. In fact, he/she will distract you from the right one in case one shows up.
5. The Pessimistic Daters
Some people are just cynical and pessimistic about the future. They have a negative outlook on their jobs, family, friends and the world we live in. At times you might find these complaining, negative folks intriguing, but eventually, they will drain all of your positive energy. If you want a happy, fun, peaceful, drama-free relationship, stay away from these sorts of daters
6. The It’s All About Me Daters
These types of dates have only one thing to talk about – themselves. You may not realize this initially, but sooner or later, you’ll find him/her always talking about him on dates, and will force you to do things that they like. You’ll see yourself in movies he/she chose or dining in restaurants that they reserved. These dates will ultimately commit, but are you looking forward to being with such self-absorbed boyfriend or girlfriend?
7. The Always Party Daters
When you’re young, it can be fun and exhilarating dating someone who is the king or queen of the party! But, eventually the novelty will whine off, and if you’re looking for a serious relationship, you don’t want to date someone who is a ‘party animal.' If you happen to be dating someone who is 40, but parties like a 20-year-old, it’s time you abandon him/her, as this person needs to grow up a lot.
