Women go on a lot of bad dates before they find “the one,” and sometimes the burning desire for a soulmate is enough to lead us astray. This serves as a reminder to know your worth and never settle for anything less. However, navigating all of the red flags in the dating world to find a man who treats you well can be challenging. Some men are perfectly content to date for years but will not take the risk of proposing, even if you’re perfect wife material. Here are all the non-marriage material men to avoid.
- The clubbing enthusiast
You should probably avoid dating DJs as well. These guys suffer from “Peter Pan Syndrome,” or a lack of desire to mature and become adults. They only want to party and not think about their future. Being with the life of the party can be appealing, but it may be more practical to date someone who considers the future rather than just the present.
2. The man with numerous ex-girlfriend
This does not necessarily imply that he is a good catch. In fact, it could imply the inverse. Even though we’ve all had previous relationships, if he has more exes than you can count, it’s a red flag that he’s not the most committed person. While people can change, there’s usually a common denominator here that should serve as a red flag, whether it’s that he’s a commitment-phobe or a cheater. You should also avoid him if he is still in love with his ex.
3. The man who loves strip clubs
Unless you’re completely fine with it or you enjoy going to strip clubs with him (we’re not judging), a man who wants to spend time away from you to see women undress is probably not the best hubby material. Regular strip club patrons are more concerned with spending their money on pretty girls than with you.
4. He won’t talk about the relationship
If he becomes uncomfortable or avoids discussing the future of the relationship or working through conflict, it is likely that he still wishes to be single or hasn’t fully discovered his identity. Allowing him to refuse to discuss the relationship gives him control and sends the message that he can live the life he wants without making any sacrifices or compromises.
