Steer Clear: Understanding Types Of Men Women Should Avoid At All Costs

Some women may avoid certain men for a variety of reasons. The types of men that women may avoid could include those who exhibit disrespectful or aggressive behavior, lack empathy and emotional intelligence, or even display a pattern of dishonesty or deceit. Many women may try to avoid men with a history of infidelity or mistreatment in past relationships. It’s important, however, to recognize that not all men fit into these categories.

This user stated, “Apart from the Triangle of Madness (racist, sexist, homophobic), my personal pet peeves are “those who can read “you” already” (“Yeah, you say you don’t want to get married, but I know you’re just waiting for the right man”) and those who compliment you like they’re giving you their approval (“I like that dress!/ I like your taste in movies!”

This Redditor said, “Men who value money or their career over people and connections like it’s one thing to enjoy and take pride in your work. It’s another thing to think people are replaceable or are low priority and that most people in your life will happily wait when you choose work again and again over maintaining connections.”

Quiet Strength

A user shared, “Men who like women for their “quiet strength.” I’ve only just recently heard a few guys say this, but apparently, it’s the idea that a woman is strong based on how much she can tolerate and endure.”

Do Not Approach

This user said, “I am really uncomfortable when men I don’t know try to approach me. I don’t care about their intentions, as they should know it inherently does not feel safe for us when they approach us without a reason.”

A top-liked comment said, “Men that tell you what your mood is at the time, and when you tell them they’re wrong, they don’t believe you and basically gaslight you into thinking you are in a bad mood.”

Reactive Anger

Finally, a Redditor said, “I run at even the slightest indication of a propensity for reactive anger. Anger can absolutely be a healthy, helpful emotion; I’m talking about becoming hostile with service workers for whatever reason, needing the last word, and not showing any ability to let things go for the sake of letting go.”The women of Reddit sure had a lot of things to say about the qualities in men they try hard to avoid. Sometimes you just have to look for the bad before looking for the good.
