Some girls I really like, others I'll tolerate just to be nice...and others just shouldn't talk to me. I suppose we all have our pet peeves and personal preferences, and there are certain types of individuals who just rub us the wrong way. Sometimes, it's just a personality thing and it's not necessarily their fault. That doesn't really change the fact that it still annoys the sh** out of me and frankly, it's better if we just avoid each other entirely.
Here are four types of women that just drive me straight up the wall.
I've never understood why some guys find this appealing. Maybe it's because the guys have crappy self-images, so they go for girls they KNOW are dumber than they are...? Just so the guy can feel superior in the relationship? I dunno, I guess. I just can't see any benefit to being with someone who acts like - and apparently has the mental capacity - of a thirteen-year-old. It's like dating a chick who never got past junior high, you know? Worse, they seem to have the attention span of a squirrel, which makes being around them doubly difficult.
The Imperious Princess
I suppose this is the opposite of The Ditz, though maybe not the exact opposite. The Imperious Princess is never wrong and takes control from the outset. She doesn't say she believes men should be subservient and yet, every move she makes proves the opposite. It's one thing to roll your eyes at your friends about your boyfriend every now and then, and quite another to simply dismiss the man in your life as being a minor attraction of sorts. The guy is little more than an accessory to her and that's that. You feel about three feet tall when you're with someone like this.
Ever go out with that girl who, when you ask what she wants to do, constantly responds, "Oh, I don't know, whatever you want to do"? Or when you want to get involved in some sort of meaningful discussion, she participates halfheartedly for about three minutes and then either bows out or changes the subject? Look, you don't have to control everything but you have to have a backbone. You have to have an opinion. I just refuse to date a mannequin. Not only is it exasperating, it's intensely boring.
And by the way, I don't mind shy and demure girls. But they have to step up and be strong women at some point.
The Damaged Goods Girl
Call me whatever you want. Say I'm a mean person who doesn't like to give a girl a second chance. I don't care. I'm past the point in my life where I want to be part social worker or therapist. I'm past the point of listening to horrid sob stories about bad family life, drug abuse, etc. If you're a mess, I'm very sorry that things didn't go well for you, but I'm not the guy who's going to risk a long-term relationship (and maybe my own health and well-being). It's unbelievable how many girls really are absolute messes these days, and it always surprises me when they say they have difficulty finding guys.
Really? Life dealt you a shitty hand, I get it, but it's not my responsibility to clean you up. And by the way, girls should say the same thing about guys who are messes.
Looking back on this list, I guess the long and short of it is that I can't stand extremes. ;)
