If you’ve been dating for any length of time, you likely already know that no two women are alike — and that there are a lot of women out there who would make a great partner. Unfortunately, not every woman you meet is going to be amazing. Suffice to say, there are so many types of women you should never marry. In fact, you shouldn’t even date them.
While you're free to do whatever you want with your dating life, it's also a good idea to avoid dating someone who will only give you a headache (or worse) in the long run. Here are the women who might seem great at the start but will make your married life a nightmare.
1. The Insecure Woman
While insecurity in younger women is often due to inexperience and insecurities carried over from high school or college, even more mature women can carry wounds from failed marriages or serious relationships.
The insecure woman will need constant reassurance that she’s important to you. She feeds off of your validation so you’ll constantly have to reassure her that you think she’s special, that you love her and that you think she’s amazing.
In short, being in a relationship with an insecure woman is emotionally exhausting. If you want to save yourself a lot of unnecessary headaches, avoid relationships with insecure women of any age.
2. The Booty Call
If you’re in a no-strings-attached sexual relationship with a woman but are longing for something more, forget it. While a booty call relationship can change into something more substantial over time, it’s rare. And you surely will not be getting the type of love you want.
For a relationship to work with a woman you’re sleeping with, she needs to see you as more than a fun time in bed. It takes more than just sex to make a marriage work. And if sexual chemistry is all you have, you should either create a deeper bond or forget ever wanting to marry someone who just wants sex.
3. The Spender
Most women are not interested in your money. So many of them lead independent lives where they can make their own money. But there are always exceptions to the rule — and you definitely do not want to get involved with a spender. A spender is the type of woman who can’t save a penny to save her life. Money burns a hole in her pocket and, because of this, she’s not financially stable. If you’re in a relationship with this type of woman, she won’t just spend her money, but yours too.
The key to remember is this: if you marry a spender, you’ll not only be taking on all of her debts, but you’ll be in for a lot of fights about finances. And who wants that?
4. The Beauty Only
The Beauty Only is so focused on her looks that she puts all of her energy into preserving them. She probably spends a lot of time exercising, getting her hair and nails done and only buys the highest quality cosmetics. While this isn’t inherently a bad thing, it becomes a problem when the contents of her closet are more important to her than your wants and needs.
If she’s more in love with what she sees in the mirror than she is with you, that’s not a good basis for starting a relationship.
5. The Drama Queen
We all know at least a few drama queens, don’t we? Drama queens are frequently loud and the life of the party, so they seem like a lot of fun — at first. But guys, the constant drama that she’ll bring to your life is not only exhausting, but it can also even land you in trouble.
This type of woman thrives on receiving attention. She not only enjoys drama but creates it wherever she goes — and frequently leaves you to deal with the fallout. She’s a gossip and is always talking about and finding fault with others. She can’t be relied on to keep a secret and always spills the details when someone shares something with her in confidence.
Marrying a drama queen will definitely bring chaos to your family relationships. It may even put you in the position of having to choose between family and her. This is a headache you just don’t need. You're better off wondering why you don't have a girlfriend.
6. The Negative Nancy
The glass is always half empty with a Negative Nancy. She’s the classic pessimist and never has anything nice to say about anyone. This is the type of woman who finds it hard to get along with your friends because, in her eyes, there will always be something wrong with them.
A Negative Nancy will always place the blame on someone else and will never take responsibility for her own actions. Guys, we can guarantee you, it won’t be long before she is finding fault with everything you do and say. Eventually, that kind of negativity will suck all of the joy and life out of your relationship.
7. The Party Girl
Yes, you can find party girls at any age. Women in their 30s and 40s can be just as much of a partier as a girl in her 20s. While there’s nothing wrong with cutting loose now and then, the party girl is a woman who lives and breathes parties.
She has a deep-seated need to go out and be noticed. And because of that, she’ll always be found wearing something flashy and eye-catching. Her wardrobe is not the only thing she does to bring attention to herself, either. She talks loud, dances flamboyantly and drinks hard.
This is the type of woman who will ditch you and your plans to hit the clubs with her friends. She’s also the type of woman who can’t do weekend brunches or go out for an early morning walk with you because she’s so hungover from partying on Friday and Saturday nights. So, unless you’re a rockstar yourself, marrying a Party Girl might give you a lifetime of drunkenness and hangovers.
8. The Liar
The liar is a type of woman who will lie simply because she can. We’re not talking about a woman who tells white lies to avoid hurting someone’s feelings. We’re talking about the type of woman who lies as easily and naturally as she breathes.
She’ll lie to get herself out of a sticky situation. She’ll lie to avoid doing something she doesn’t want to do. And she’ll lie to make herself seem better than she is — she may even lie to amuse herself.
Don’t kid yourself guys, if a woman lies easily to others, she’s going to lie to you too. What starts out as little lies can turn into relationship-ruining lies! You’ll never be able to fully trust her and that is not healthy in a relationship.
9. The “I’m Not Ready” Woman
This is probably the hardest woman to walk away from. That’s because the “I’m Not Ready” woman can be an amazing person — and someone you really want to be with. You may not even notice that she’s an “I’m Not Ready” because since she seems like such a great all-around person and you assume she’s ready to settle down.
Unfortunately, she might not be ready for marriage for a number of reasons. Maybe she was hurt in the past and she has shunned the idea of marriage. Maybe she’s simply not the type who wants to settle down. She might be perfectly content with being unmarried for the rest of her life. While all of that is generally okay, it shouldn’t be okay for you if you want to marry her.
No amount of convincing and bargaining will make her “ready.” And if you do succeed in getting her to the altar, who’s to say this is what she really wants? So if you’re with an “I’m Not Ready” woman, talk to her first and make sure you’re on the same page about where your relationship is headed.
10. The Clinger
She’s been with you through it all. You go on great dates, you go on adventures together, you share hobbies, interests, likes, dislikes. She goes to all your family functions, your get-togethers with friends, waits around the lobby at your office, texts all your friends---wait a minute.
You might think The Clinger is the type of woman who is just so in love with you that she can’t bear to be away from you. But in truth, if you find that you’re dating a woman whose life seems to revolve around you, it’s time to think this through. Being with someone with no interests or hobbies of her own is a red flag.
A relationship with someone who wants to be around you 24/7 is exhausting and unhealthy. She may end up relying on you to make her happy. This is not a good foundation for a relationship, let alone a marriage! Unless you can gently coax her to be more independent and do her own thing, don’t ever propose to a Clinger!
If you’re currently dating a woman who falls into any of these 10 categories, it may be time to rethink the relationship or at least know how often you should see someone you just started dating. Knowing what types of women to steer clear of can save you a whole lot of hassle, not to mention heartache. Marriage takes work and effort. And if you already feel like you're working hard just to keep the relationship afloat, it might be time to cut your losses and find someone else.
