The search for Mr. Right can be excruciating even when all other parameters are at 20/20. The journey is chock-full of men that will make you doubt your ability to choose a suitable life time mate. Most times it’s not your fault. That’s not how society makes you see it! If you are single at a certain age, you are deemed to lack the emotional intelligence to select and attract the opposite sex. We’ve all heard the cheesy line of “kissing many frogs before you finally meet Mr. Right”. The good news is that you actually don’t have to walk that treacherous path if you avoid these classes of men:
This one will spot a fake Gucci T-shirt and tell anyone who cares to hear about the details of how many dollars he spent to import it from Dubai. He always has a fake US accent that will most likely be coated with mother tongue intonation – just ask him to pronounce “Lieutenant” and he would rather be dead than be seen in any form of public transportation despite that fact that the car he drives is hired! If he hits you with this kind of talk, pull a Usain Bolt on him because let’s face it empty debes make the loudest noise!
The ever busy man
He always sends an automated text “I ‘ll call you back” or “In a meeting” and on the occasional days he picks your call, he will always tell you, “Let me call you back shortly!” The problem is that he won’t! In fact you shall only get to talk to him when you call him hours later, probably in the wee hours of the night or morning. This breed will never spare 1 or two hours to look into your eyes, tell jokes, or give you a foot or back massage. He is always busy! He will claim to be working in essential services such as finding the cure for Corona yet you will never see the money he works so hard for! If you really like to delude yourself, date yourself and bury your head in the sand… this is your type of coffee.
The mama’s boy
Even with a full grown 35 year old beard, the mama’s boy will always consult his mother before buying you a birthday gift. Mama’s approval is key and her word is law, take or leave it. This one will never make an independent decision about important and non-important details of his life. He probably lives at his mother’s house if not Servant quarter, some will cleverly move just a few blocks away but close enough to always inhale the smell of his mother’s food. His mother takes care of his laundry, meals and knows where his other sock is. On close view, I will say with authority that these are the kind who will never grow up. Woe unto you if you decide to settle on this one.
The married man
A friend recently told me that the hitched fellas are more available compared to eligible bachelors. Well, this of course is the type of man you will want to stay away from without having to be pushed. The aim is to get your own reliable chest to lie own not becoming a fifth option to someone! I rest my case. Think about it.
The Player is too cool or too hot to stick to one fine girl. He prefers a bevy of girls ready to massage his fragile ill-informed ego. If you love yourself, you will keep away from this type of man because he will call you by another girl’s name at your most deep moment.
The Noncommittal guy
The guy with commitment issues will give you a soapy story of how their first girlfriend heart broke them so bad they are yet to recover. Truth is, he’s afraid of having to be responsible for someone other than himself, run sis, I said run!
