Are You One of the Guys to Avoid?

I’m still talking to you guys and let’s face it. There are guys to love and there are guys to avoid. Are we being completely fair? Of course not. We’re merely your average prejudiced womankind. But I’m going to give you an advantage. I will tell you about the kind of guys women avoid. So you can avoid them too. No, no, so you can change if you’re that kind of guy. No lah, no need to drop into a vat of chemicals and morph into a superhero, just hold back on those unattractive tendencies till she has time to love the whole you, warts and all.

  1. Mr Knows-Better-Than-Everyone-Else

Also known as God’s Gift to Women and Everyone in the Universe, you think everyone is beneath you and your opinions should be published daily in the newspapers. Your date wants to eat Thai food? No way, Japanese food is so much better for your health. She thinks Obama has been good for America? No one is better than Bush. She has been thinking of getting her acne checked out. Doctors are all quacks, she should just hydrate.

What to do if you’re That Guy:

Drop the attitude and come down to earth! On a date, your date is always Better than You. If you can’t wrap your head around that idea, go home and date your Chihuahua.

  1. Mr Can’t-Stop-Flirting

You’re listening to your date when you suddenly spot the hot waitress out of the corner of your eye. Your eyes can’t resist following her around the room. Then you’re distracted by a pretty young thing walking into the café. Wow, awesome legs, you conclude. You suddenly notice your date has stopped talking. Oops. Ten minutes later, the waitress brings your coffee, you smile winsomely at her and she smiles back. Score!

What to do if you’re That Guy:

Omg. Have some respect, dude. On a date, your date is the Only Woman in the Universe. Put on your blinders and study this woman who has graciously accepted your invitation!

  1. Mr 10-Cents-Also-Must-Count

No one is saying you have to be an oil magnate to date and certainly there’s nothing wrong with thrift but curb your instincts to count every single cent on every single bill especially if you need to whip out your calculator to do it.

What to do if you’re That Guy:

A little generosity pays. If the bill is $43.75 and you’re already going Dutch, be happy with her share of $20. One day when you’re both on the same side of the fence, she’ll be happy to share your ideals of thrift because by then, your money IS her money. So rein yourself in till she’s on your side.

  1. Mr Still-Reports-To-Mama-Daily

Halfway through your date, your mama calls and you spend five minutes reporting your day to her. Your mama calls on every date like clockwork. You’re 27 years old.

What to do if you’re That Guy:

Omg. First of all, you shouldn’t be on the phone with anyone else for five minutes while you’re on a date unless your grandpapa has been rushed to hospital. Second of all, no date wants to be second place to any other woman, least of all your mother who will be in your life forever. Every woman struggles with her mother-in-law; do you really need to start the war this early? Call your mama AFTER the date lah!

  1. Mr Rude-and-Inconsiderate

You don’t thank the waitress. You don’t return your tray at the food court. You don’t give up your seat to the pregnant lady on the MRT. You honk at the AMBULANCE trying to get ahead of you.

What to do if you’re That Guy:

This is a tough one because your problem is so much bigger than the date. I would say, GET OVER YOURSELF. Give a thought to others, have some empathy, and suddenly your world will become a bigger place.
