Let’s face it the dating world is a jungle. And it only seems that the more apps and the more dating services become available, the harder things get. And especially true if you’re hoping to find love with your dignity and your heart intact.

People take each other for a test-drive, dismiss each other with a swipe and break up with a text message.

It’s brutal out-there!

Obviously one of the best way to avoid getting hurt is to cull out the wrong guys early.

Here are 5 types of men to avoid like the plague:

Mr Casanojuan

He loves women. He adores women. He’s addicted to women. He is charismatic and he knows it. Whether it’s his smile, his hair or his eyes, he has this one quality that’s irresistible and that he knows how to use it to ensnare you.

His hypnotic gaze and his bright smile give you the impression that you’re the only one in the world. He’s mastered the art of simulating an intense connection that appeals to your senses and blurs your thinking.


Observe him for 5 minutes and you can catch him pull the same number on his next unsuspecting victim.

Mr Unavailable

He appears to be very sensitive. You assume he must have been hurt in the past. You hit it off immediately and you seem to be on the same wave length. You’re really touched by his demeanor: he seems so authentic, so sincere, so eager to try again.

Come to think of it, he may be a little too eager.

You are a little startled when he starts painting the bright future you’ll share together on your second date. At the same time, you think it’s touching.


He can’t deliver. After the first few idyllic dates, he starts blowing hot and cold. One second he’s the most charming, next second he can barely acknowledge your existence.

This man is broken, a text-book commitment-phobe who will only waste your time and break your heart.

You’re hurt, confused and you try to rationalize his behavior.

After all you have this beautiful connection and he was the one who started to make plans for your future.

But there’s nothing rational about this man. He likes the idea of romance, but he’s unable to commit to it.

Why? Fear, pain, sabotage, jerk. Honestly, who cares. You’re not his therapist!

Whatever his reason for toying with you this man is broken, a text-book commitment-phobe who will only waste your time and break your heart.

My advice: run!

Mr ‘I forgot I had a family’

This man is bold and fearless. He approaches you confidently and conquers you with his strong masculine presence. He likes to take charge.

You go on a few dates. Things seem to progress nicely and you’re starting to believe that this may lead somewhere. He’s present, attentive, thoughtful, you’re really enjoying his company.

Until he casually mentions his wife or his girlfriend.

No, you don’t worry. He says it’s not serious. They are either a) on a break b) getting a divorce c) insert random lame excuse.

Whatever his excuse, he’s playing things down so you can keep your hopes high.

Generally speaking that’s your cue to run. Nobody deserves to be number 2 or number 15 for that matter. Aim for number 1 (and only!)

(Now I say generally speaking because in my case actually my partner was going through a divorce when I met him. However, him and his now ex-spouse were living in different countries and the paperwork was being processed so it was clear that things were as they seemed.)

Mr Wolf in sheep clothing

This man is really vicious and therefore very dangerous. You will find him navigating in yoga circles and in churches or any group where he can be surrounded by a large number of trusting women. There, he strategically benefits from the high women to men ratio, from the low competition and from the wide array of unsuspecting potential victims.

He can be hard to detect because he’s very manipulative, he’s mastered the art of playing with words and knows how to hide.

My advice: proceed with caution. It may take some time to detect him.

Don’t fall for his demeanor or his clever words. Speech doesn’t show character, actions do. Watch for inconsistencies between his professed beliefs and his behaviors.

Mr lethal attraction

He’s the bad boy who appeals to the rebel in you. With him you feel like you’re on vacation from your responsibilities and from your life. He’s entertaining, he’s wild and he makes you feel alive.

The problem?

This guy is unstable and the minute things don’t go his way he acts out. And acting out doesn’t mean a cute little verbal fight. He’s more the pulling-a-gun type, or the jumping-off-a-bridge type.

If you’re lucky he’ll embarass you in front of your neighbors by showing up drunk and screaming at your window in the middle of the night, if you’re not he may be threaten his or your life.

Not worth it…!

Conclusion: date like a CEO

As a conclusion, with so many ‘colorful’ people out there, you need to go slow. Take your time and analyze the person you have in front of you. Are they congruent? Do their words match their actions? What does your gut tell you?

We, women are emotional in nature. Emotions have their place however, while you looking for Mr. Right you’ll benefit from keeping your head squarely planted on your shoulders.

I read a blogger, whose name I can’t remember unfortunately, who expressed that you should go about dating as if you were interviewing someone for a job. Now, this may not sound very romantic and I can already see certain bossy women take this a little too far. However, I think there’s some truth to this idea. The man who will share you life will play one of the most important part in your life and he needs to be up to the job.

We, women are emotional in nature. Emotions have their place however, while you looking for Mr. Right you’ll benefit from keeping your head squarely planted on your shoulders.

In your professional life I am sure your criteria are a little stricter than ‘we had such a great connection’. Take this spirit and bring it to your love life. Enjoy the romance, but keep your eyes open and watch for the signs.

On a last note, while you have every right to demand the best from your partner, remember that he also has the right to expect the best from you. Be the kind of woman who deserves an exceptional man.
