8 Types of Men We’re Boycotting

Betty's dating dealbreakers.

Man looking at his watch

1. Mr. Too Busy to Call. I’ve dated men in all kinds of demanding professions. Lawyers, doctors, wine-in-a-box makers. Somehow, the busiest of them all always found time to call me. Every single day. Even if he only had five minutes, he shared them with me. If a guy doesn’t have time for you, you no longer have time for him.

  1. I would PREFER to date #1, personally. Having a guy call me every single day would be overwhelming and, honestly, a little bit creepy. Which is probably why I don’t date, because Mr. Too Busy To Call never asks me out. It’s always Mr. I Have Nothing Better To Do With My Life Than Call You Constantly.

  2. Even if you did manage to tolerate one of these characters it probably will be because they’ve promised that they’ll change….Men never change for more than the time it takes to get you into bed for ‘make-up sex’. Doesn’t make ’em evil, but it does make them a weasel…and us feel silly for bringing the flea ridden little mongrels back into our lives.

  3. whew,, i was close to admitting to #8 till i remembered i pay all my bills as soon as they come in. the problem with me is i’m handicapped you know like in disabled but, only my doctor knows for sure. degenerative disc disease. my body is riddled with arthritis. i’ve learned to live with it without pain drugs.

  4. FFlotus, you are absolutely right about #5’s being mama’s boys. I recently broke up with one. My theory is that they think because their mothers worship everything they do, you should too. Don’t fall for it. You, and only you, are the best judge of what’s best for your life.

  5. Well I do hate to admit it but being a guy I’m forced to say I’ve shown traits of atleast one of these 8 before but no self respecting guy likes to come across as one of these types of men(Least I know I don’t).

  7. I wonder what the reaction would be to a similar list of Female traits. I’m sure one would be “Ms. wants-me-to-call-everyday”. That’s creepy, and I wouldn’t date you.

    Would you consider the man who wrote the editorial a pig? Would the conclusion drawn gravitate toward misogyny and desire to oppress and control?

    This list is acutely petty. The general consensus of agreement besides one sane-sounding lady who also found constant calling from someone you’re merely dating is most illuminating; I shall now classify you ‘Ms. Wide-Eyed Vanity”. Cheers.

  8. wow johnny, someone’s a little over dramatic. and just because you attempt to throw around grandiose language with a hint of the comedic in order to chip away the author’s ethos doesn’t mean you’re right.

    anyways, i just wanted to say that I’m a dude so as far as who I’ll even be friends with (usually) this list pretty much hits the nail on the head. and to the ladies, just because something about a guy MIGHT say something about him that’s cool or mysterious, look at what everything else about him says too.

  9. Ok seriously, whats up with all the boxed wine comments?

    I guess I am a bit of a number 5 because I seriously will almost never drink boxed wine, unless I make it into sangria, its gross and the heavy sulfates give me a horrible hangover. But, dancing in the street in pjs sounds fun, and depending on her pjs SEXY! I love fine wine and have a small collection, but I drink them all with my girlfriend when the time is right, and I usually only spend like 20-30 dollars a bottle, though they are worth a lot more adn by the time I drink them they tend to be worth more like $200. I love fine dining and I drive a jaguar, but I am not exactly obsessive over it. My girlfriend just broke my window when we were moving she came to me in tears and I just asked her if she was ok, if she was hurt, she said no so I held her, is that so bad?
    I am also a bit of a Bossy McBossy pants. But, so are most of the girls I date, so we just argue a lot, then we make up and have amazing sex!
    I am also a bit of a 7 from time to time, I love taking my girl to Disneyland! I only ever run into problems with money because I have a tendency to spend too much on gifts for her though. I bought my current girlfriend a tiffany & co necklace for our first Christmas, 2 months later I was a bit tight on money as I had just gotten in a car accident and she lost it and started crying. I couldn’t bear to see her cry so I bought her a new one. I didn’t really have the money for it though. I’ve never had my power shut off, but my landlord has yelled at me for not paying rent until the 3rd because I was waiting for my paycheck to clear. I want to know, does it sound like I am so bad?
