This writer thinks single men are unfairly generalized when it comes to dating. While there are single men out there who have no intention of ever settling down, there are also the guys who love the idea of having committed relationships that blossom into something long-term like, gasp, marriage.
Unfortunately, not all women are the same and just like there are Mr. Wrong’s walking our streets disguised as Mr. Right, Ms. Wrong is out there too with her red pitchfork stilettos. The bottom of her heels may trick you into believing she’s wearing Louboutin’s, but that’s just a stain from the hearts she’s stomped on.
There are several types of Ms. Wrongs, but I’ve chopped down that exhaustive list to a simple five. Get informed gentleman, you’ve been warned.
Promiscuous Pricilla may have been fun in college but she really isn’t girlfriend material. She loves you but she loves sex just a bit more, which is fine (you go girl!), except most times it’s not with you. She’s probably gorgeous, a fact that she knows all too well. She uses her looks to get herself out of sticky situations with you like when you called her cell phone and her other boyfriend answered. She’s a pathological liar. You can find her in a drug store – weekly – purchasing super sampler packs of Trojan condoms but you can only recall making love to her only twice last week. She doesn’t like you to spend the night at her place and you haven’t met her parents yet but you’ve met all of her friends who always give you a sympathetic look whenever you brag about her being “the one.” Without a doubt, Promiscuous Pricilla is great in bed that’s because she’s had a lot of experience with and without you, before and during the relationship. You could probably succeed in turning her into a housewife but be wary of the people you call your friends; you might find one of your boys resting nude next to her in bed.
Nagging Nancy is just plain annoying. Nothing you do will ever be good enough because she will find a way to nag about it. Granted some of the things you do, do warrant a reaction of frustration, but she is just a bottle of negativity. She’s doesn’t like the way you chew. She hates the way you walk. It would probably be safe to say that she just hates you. She’s always criticizing you and has no problem telling you about everything you lack. She has a horrible way with getting her point across without raising her voice and you can only remember her pointing out the positive things that you do once or twice during the course of your relationship. She finds faults in all of your friends and would prefer if you found some new ones. And even if you did, she’d find something wrong with them as well. She’s a little on the controlling side but does a great job of disguising it and playing it off as her caring and wanting you to be a better person. There is no solution for Nagging Nancy because the only perfect person to her is her and she is far from perfect.
Gold Digging Gina
If you never meet Gold Digging Gina in your lifetime, count your blessings because she is worse than a thirsty mosquito that suffers from gluttony. Gold Digging Gina likes two things: money and your money. She adores the finest things in life and does anything to get it. She knows when you get paid and how much you get paid and is always so sweet to you on pay day. She probably doesn’t work and if she does, it’s hardly often. She knows all of the designer labels and pricy hotels by heart though she is well aware of the fact that she herself can’t afford it. She doesn’t mind being the other woman so long as her rent and bills are paid. Gold Digging Gina demands that her man makes a certain amount of money and would rather die than to give her time to a guy who only has a dream and not a dollar. And if your funds happen to run out, no worries; she will be on the first plane headed towards someone else who can support her lifestyle. The interesting thing about Gold Digging Gina is that all that she asks for from the one she pursues are things she herself hasn’t accomplished and has no plans of doing. Why would she, she has your American Express in her back pocket.
This is a girl you don’t want to toy with. Insecure Irene has a way with taking up your time with her issues and making you wonder what you ever saw in her. She’s always putting herself down. She thinks she’s too fat, too short, or too anything she feels is negative. She doesn’t trust you no matter how much you try to prove it to her. She always thinks you’re cheating even when that thought hasn’t even crossed your mind. If you happen to work around a lot of women be prepared to be bombarded with questions inquiring about their personalities. In reality, she could care less about their personalities, she’s just waiting to see which one of the women you mention, makes your eyes twinkle so that she could speculate and jump to conclusions. She is liable to snoop through your things and you will probably know nothing about it. She will hack into your phone if you leave it lying around and she will not hesitate to call a number that looks unfamiliar in your call log. She probably has low self-esteem and is always looking to you to compliment her. And don’t you dare mention the beauty of another woman, are you crazy? Insecure Irene probably has little to no female friends and the ones that she does have she doesn’t want you near them. She caters to your every need and you love it. The sad thing is that she does it not because she wants to, but because she thinks that it will keep you around.
Lazy Leslie doesn’t do anything so don’t ask her to. She has little care for life and depends on other people to take care of things she’s supposed to be concerned about. Her house is always a mess and she probably can’t cook. She’s most likely easily annoyed and is miserable with her job but fears finding a new one because she doesn’t take too kindly to change. In her world there is no such thing as aspirations or dreams. She has a way with putting on a front pretending to be something she’s not at the beginning of the relationship but as soon as she knows that she’s got your heart she’ll show her true colors. Lazy Leslie is known to let herself go in the looks department and believes in sleeping in every weekend, so you can forget about catching a movie. Down the line if you are looking to start a family you better think twice. Lazy Leslie doesn’t do bottles or diapers.
