Dating Chronicles: People Reflect on the Types They’ll Never Date Again

When dating, we tend to encounter a diverse range of individuals, each with their unique quirks and qualities. Unfortunately, among this assortment, there are those few who leave a negative mark or experience that sticks with us for a long time. This often prompts a firm decision to never venture down a romantic path with that type of person again. That said, however, these are also the people who’ve taught us a valuable lesson about compatibility and communication.

This Redditor said, “I recently learned about “stonewalling,” and it was crippling. Dismissing concerns, refusing to listen when your partner needs it, and getting defensive whenever a disagreement happens. Over time, it makes you feel angry, confused, and distrustful.”

This user said, “Someone who plays the victim in life. I wanted so badly to help my ex out. To get her out of her s*****y living situation. Help her get her finances and medical needs in order. I really stuck my neck out. Gave it 150%. Exhausted myself regularly so that I could help her out. I just wanted to see her quality of life improve.”

A user said, “I don’t know if this will be controversial or maybe it’s obvious, but someone with a drug problem. Yes, maybe it’s a disease. No, it doesn’t make them a bad person. But it will ruin your life. Not just theirs, yours too 100%. No matter how together you are in your life personally, it will seep over into your world.”
