Too often for chicks in the dating world, boy meets girl, goes out with girl once and then never talks to girl again, leaving girl baffled over what she did wrong.
In fact, she may have done nothing wrong. It might be that he was just a jerk. Or it might be that she was putting out warning signs that she’s one of these four types of girls, none of which a dude wants to be with long-term.
1. The Serial Flirt.
Guys love girls who flirt-- with them. A flirty girl is fun, charming and confident. But when a girl giggles, touches and tosses her hair at everyone, she appears less cute and confident, more insecure and attention-needy. In the 2010 Great Male Survey, askmen.com readers listed a sense of loyalty as the number one quality they look for in a relationship. While guys like a challenge, fighting for a girl’s attention is a game that gets really old really fast.
2. The Cling-On.
Yea, we’re going to use that word again: needy. This chick can’t go anywhere or do anything without the company of her man. She adopts his interests, calls 15 times a day and goes nuts anytime she’s not around to monitor his behavior. The Cling-On is more work than a relationship deserves, and she smothers any chance of a guy missing her by robbing him of energy and exhausting his patience with her demands. "Men can sense desperation," warns psychotherapist Katherine Woodward Thomas in her book, Calling in "The One." "Most guys will steer clear of a girl they think is dying for a boyfriend."
3. The Party Girl
When a guy first meets this girl, he’s crazy about her. She’s fun, spontaneous and maybe a little wild. Once they get a closer look, however, they realize that her entire life is a party. While a guaranteed good time may seem like a good idea, what will she be like in the sobering light of day? For a hook-up, maybe for a semester, a guy will want to keep this girl’s number in his phone, but if he’s thinking long-term, he’ll move on and look for someone who knows the meaning of “closing time.”
4. The Windbag
The Windbag is the girl who never shuts up, barely stopping to breathe. Seeming only concerned about what is going on in her life and sharing her prattling insights, this chick also has Drama-Queen tendencies (not good). It’s great to be able to carry on a conversation about something that genuinely interests the guy sitting across from you at dinner, but remember that a conversation is supposed to go both-ways, and he most likely doesn’t want to hear about gossip, shoes or your favorite CW show.
Ladies, be introspective. Are you one of these girls? While there may be a dozen more amazing parts to your personality, on a first date, a guys going to go with what he sees in front of him, and if he sees one of these four girls, he’s going to run for the hills.
