3 More Types of People You Shouldn't Date
Yes, we have written a blog about this before but as we all know this world is full of different types of people and a lot of those people are just not worth dating. So without further ado, here are three more types of people you really should not date…
Someone who’s still into their Ex
Once you’ve crossed the threshold into your twenties, it’s very likely that the majority of people you date will have an Ex or two (or fifteen). While there’s nothing wrong with dating someone who has a past (because let’s be honest, we all have one), it becomes a problem when this person is still hung up on their Ex. Being in a relationship with someone who still has a flame burning for their Ex doesn’t just take an emotional toll on the relationship itself, it takes a toll on you. Not only will you find this person constantly comparing you to their Ex, you’ll find yourself doing the same; suddenly every mention of his/her name will have you reevaluating your own self worth. On top of all that, there will always be that constant fear of them leaving you to rekindle things with their long lost love. Long story short, it’s just not a good idea.
Someone you’re trying to fix
If you grew up in the era of teen movies, the notion of finding a diamond in the rough and moulding them into your perfect person can seem like a romantic one. The flaw in this logic however, is that you begin to fall in love with the “potential” person someone could be instead of the person they actually are. It can seem like you’re just settling for this person and banking on the very slight possibility of them changing to become everything you want and need. If that’s not enough of a deterrent for you, think about how resentful the person you’re trying to change would feel towards you. You wouldn’t like it if someone decided to make you their pet project and change everything about you, so why would it be ok for you to do that to someone else? Need more reasons? Read this.
Someone who treats you badly
You’d think this one would be a no-brainer but you’d be surprised at the amount of people who date or stay in long-term relationships with people who treat them poorly. Whether it’s due to a bad-boy fetish or simply low self-esteem, some people just seem to be drawn to people who don’t respect them. Dating people like this for long enough can condition you to think that this behaviour and treatment is normal. It can make you forget what it’s like to truly be loved and in the worst case scenario, it can be incredibly dangerous. Learn to recognise when someone isn’t treating you right and more importantly, learn to walk away. It’s for your own good.
