The Love Avoidant
This guy has probably been traumatized by a past experience and as a result, will damage everything he comes into contact with afterwards. Because he doesn’t often get involved in too many serious relationships, he feels as if he is doing YOU a favor. He is a poor communicator and feels that being seen with you should be enough to keep you satisfied. The love avoidant finds it easier to keep you in a box so that he won’t have to show vulnerability. He uses deflection to make things “your fault” because it is easier than addressing his own behavior. These are hard wired core beliefs that you shouldn’t even bother trying to change. It is virtually impossible to convince someone why you should be the one that they should change for-not to mention demeaning. Just walk away while you’re ahead.
The Wing Man
If the saying “birds of a feather flock together” rings true, you should definitely stay away from this dude. The Wing Man has a set group of friends for whom he is loyal to a fault. These friends also happen to be single and constantly ready to mingle. Some women probably feel secure in their man’s ability to set himself apart from his friends because she “trusts” him. However, never underestimate a guy’s ability to succumb to peer pressure. While the wing man might even be a great catch, when it comes down to saving face for his friends or saving his relationship with you, the odds are not in your favor. This guy often communicates with his friends on a constant basis and accompanies the boys to every party or function.
