8 Types of Men We’re Boycotting

Betty's dating dealbreakers.
7 / 9

Man with a secret

6. Mr. Keeps You Secret. If, after an acceptable number of dates and wine tastings, he’s not introducing you to his friends and family, you have a serious problem. (Or he’s afraid you’ll find out they all worship Air Supply.) The guy you want to be with? He wants to show you off to the world.

    Agree. Agree. Agree.

    Love #5 “Too cool for boxed wine”

  2. FBNYC says:

    #7 is a good one.

  3. lovesbetty says:

    Are guys really selfish in bed?! Guess Im lucky!

  4. kitty says:

    OMG these are all right on … but the problem is most guys exhibit at least one of these traits!

  5. uptowngirl says:

    5 is the best – and so true!

  6. jessica03 says:

    gotta agree with number 5!!!

  7. phantomspots says:

    J’adore #5. That is a dealbreaker for me, midnight pajama dances and all.

  8. FFlotus says:

    always always always stay away from #8. and #5 is probably a mama’s boy who will never care about anyone but himself.

  9. Fern says:

    It’s true…I think all guys exhibit at least one of these traits. But everything in moderation. Like boxed wine!

    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.

    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.

  12. Addie says:

    What!! No mention of the cheater??! Let’s boycott them for sure!

  13. ImJack says:

    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.
    sign me as: Dateless in Vegas

    1. Mr Un-Romantic

    2. Mr Hobbit Dick (:P)

    3. Mr Player

    4. Mr Liar Liar Pants on Fire

    that’s just a few

  15. eatingcookies says:

    I love all of these – very true. I think you might have Boxed Wine on the brain though, authoress.

  16. Kaito says:

    This was great to read. I loved the wine theme.

  17. Daisy618 says:

    How about the date who laid out his six medications on the table and told me about what each of them were for: diabetes, kidneys, heart, etc.

  18. ashleycstrong says:

    Haha. Looks like you owe me a box of wine!!! :)

  19. bmarie says:

    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.

  20. Camnorand says:

    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).

    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.

  23. nom nom nom says:

    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.

  24. nom nom nom says:

    oh and if he won’t drink wine he’s probably insecure about something so get him a box and see how he feels about it :)

  25. M_In_O_Town says:

    I don’t drink wine.

  26. M_In_O_Town says:

    And I DON’T need a box ;-)

  27. gigashadowwolf says:

    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?

    Cheap guys are a no no.
    I've never tried box wine, but now I mysteriously want to…
