Your twenties are a time to just hang loose and have fun, all without being too much of a bum of course. Guys in their twenties may mature a bit more slowly than girls do, but most dudes know which kinds of girls to avoid. To provide a clearer picture, we are going to go through our list of The 13 Types of Girls Guys in Their 20s Are Sick of Dating. You will probably recognize a lot of these girls, and if you’re one of them, then just remember that admitting you have a problem is the first step.
Those girls who are MIA until her guy leaves her and those girls who are trying to live a double-life on social media are just two examples of chicks to steer clear of. Other examples of girlfriend no-nos include those who try to play Mom and those who are tethered to their phones. We could probably come up with a few other examples to put on our list, but we decided to keep it to the 13 worst offenders. This isn’t to say that guys don’t do things that totally turn girls off, but we are focusing on the gals today. Time and time again, we hear guys complaining about their significant others because of a variety of reasons. Stop the suffering and pay attention to our list!
For the girls reading this list: try to do a self-evaluation and ask yourself if any of these destructive patterns of behavior sound like you, even just a little bit. Then work on improving. For the guys who are reading this: take notes and tell your pals because once you get sucked into a relationship with these types of girls, you might have trouble getting out.
13 The Constant Selfie/ Snapchat Taker
Your food is placed on the table and you just needed to snap it, you tell him to wait until you are done taking pics of the table before he can finally dig in to his plate. Not only have you taken 15 photos of your dinner but the entire restaurant and your date have been watching you take selfies all night, to you this may be normal but to anyone else it send a clear message. That you are too self absorbed. Your date will spend the date wondering if he was so boring that you needed to take 100 photos to entertain yourself and that you are an airhead who does nothing else but take selfies. We get it, we like to take selfies, but a first date is not the time or the place. And if you brought your selfie stick, you should be ashamed of yourself, this is so bad that he could have left mid date and had reason to. You can take selfies and Spanchat tomorrow, no one will be offended.
12 The Too Much Makeup Girl
We get it, girls want to look good at all times, especially when dating someone new. But do not wear more makeup than you can handle when going on a date. Just before going on a date is not the time to experiment with your new eyeshadow palettes. Try this the night before or when you have ample time to fix any mistakes you will inevitably make. The problem is that many women tend to overdo the makeup when getting ready for a date but the odds are what you apply on a normal night out is just fine. Put it this way, if your freckles or beauty marks have disappeared you may have too much foundation on. Guys are not really into the layers of makeup look as it tends to signal that you are hiding something. Mimi from The Drew Carrey Show is what we want to avoid here, make sure you keep the makeup fun and simple.
11 Bad Spray Tan
This is the same principal as the makeup rule, do not, and I repeat do not try a spray tan for the first time right before a date. In fact do not ever try a spray tan right before any meaningful event. The tricky thing about spray tans is that they can be different every time and every different tanning salon will provide you with different results. So this means you might have had a light glowing JLo tan last time you were there but they fired that girl and now you are stuck with the new kid who leaves it on too long, and who left you with the carrot look. You are being picked up by your date in an hour and you can see yourself getting darker by the minute, what do you do? Cancel, that is what you do, and you reschedule for a time when you look like yourself.
10 The Chronically Lying Girl
You know that girl who is always talking about her famous cousin who lives in Los Angeles or how her dad is actually a millionaire? Yeah, it’s not cute, and quite honestly dudes are so tired of dating this type of girl. She is usually under the age of 25 and just has a need to compare herself to others and one-up everyone in her path. The fact is, if this girl really has famous relatives or is actually wealthy, she should boast about it as that quality is unattractive to anyone worth dating. Think about it, why should anyone be impressed by someone boasting about their special lives. Whoever is boasting about her wealth and status probably pays way too much attention to reality TV and social media, and she may have a habit of asking her guy to take photos of her for her Instagram. What a mess.
9 The “We Need to Get Married” Girl
Okay, so we get that some girls are just yearning to settle down, get married, have kids, yadda yadda yadda. But come on; in your twenties you have plenty of time, and young adults today are taking their sweet old time to do all of that “mature” stuff. Not even that, but a lot of guys mature at a slower rate than girls, so a lot of dudes aren’t even thinking marriage plans yet. Even if he is, the last thing he will want to hear about is how you've planned the entire thing and that basically the only thing left is for him to propose. That will scare anyone off, and understandably so. The odds are they just want to have some fun, date around, and get to know people. Think of it as gaining experience to put on their love and relationships resume.
8 The Motherly Girl
She cooks for you, she cleans for you, and she tells you which clothes you should be wearing when you guys go out. Newsflash: a girlfriend is supposed to be a guy’s significant other, not a mother. Think about it, why would any guy be attracted to someone who behaves just like his mother? Yes, according to various studies people tend to seek out similar qualities in their partners as their parents, but to feel like they are dating their mother is not the goal. Most of the time when guys start dating a girl and see this kind of pattern of behavior, they cut and run faster than you can say “mommy.” The Motherly Girl is not only a huge pain in the neck, but she eliminates any chances of romance or fun. After all, how can a guy have a good time with a girl if she reminds him of his own mom?
7 The Clumsy Wild Girl
Yes, we get it; you are in your twenties and you want to live it up the best you can. Hitting the club, the bar, or a house party is not necessarily a dating deal-breaker, but a girl who spends all of her time partying it up is not desirable at all. Alcohol is for certain occasions, not for every single day. Plus, the wild-child type of girl is usually clumsy and a bit of a slob, which is a total turn-off for most men. A guy doesn't want to spend every night worrying about his girl, hoping she's ok and being faithful. With a party girl, this is all he will end up doing and it gets old really fast. It’s time to grow up and save the parties for your weekends. Save yourself the embarrassing Facebook pictures and drunk texts.
6 The Super Jealous Girl
“Where were you last night?” and “Why didn’t you call me back?” are not exactly the words that a guy in his twenties wants to hear. In fact, most dudes are looking to date around, play the field, and they aren’t exactly looking for their soul mate. But even for the guys who are into monogamy, they still don't want to be with jealous partners, no one does. Who wants to feel as though they are being tracked everywhere they go. Even friends will get annoyed of dealing with a partner like this. Jealousy indicates insecurities and immaturity, two qualities that a grown woman should not possess. Sure there are exceptions, but the majority of guys don’t need a super jealous girlfriend getting on his case day in and day out. Her constant accusations that you’re cheating on her will get old really fast, and all of this jealousy is bound to point to deeper issues for this gal. Definitely not a good sign. We encourage you to run from this.
5 The Suffocatingly Clingy Girl
Piggybacking off of that last jealous-type girl, we go to the suffocatingly clingy girl. Besides already having jealous tendencies, this girl is also probably super insecure about herself and needs your validation 24/7. She also can’t stand to be alone and will even ask you to accompany her to the grocery store or bathroom. She calls and texts constantly and will assume that you want to break up if you don’t answer within 30 seconds. Her dedication and infatuation with you may seem adorable at first, but trust us; it gets old quick. This type of girl has some serious things she needs to come to terms with.
4 The Attached-at-the-Hip-to-Her-Phone Girl
Sure, most people nowadays are addicted to their phone to some extent. Yet who know those girls who need to Instagram every meal and post a status update on every aspect of their life? Those are the girls we are talking about. No one cares if she just went to the supermarket and bought Easy Mac. This girl is just as bad as the chronic selfie taker, because she needs to capture every single moment of her day. She actually takes pictures of every meal she eats and every possibly interesting aspect of her day and honestly no one cares! She will not change, at least any time soon so our best advice is to let her go. You might need to text it to her if she's too busy staring at her screen to notice you. You can just change your status to single on Facebook, she'll get the hint.
3 The Still-Acts-Like-A-Teenager Girl
By this we mean the girl who throws temper tantrums, expects mommy and daddy to pay for everything, and assumes you guys are an exclusive couple because you grabbed a bite to eat at the McDonald’s. The odd are mommy and daddy did do everything for her. This girl is hopelessly stuck in the teenager phase and she might be a lost cause, people like this are very hard to change. She was most likely spoiled rotten all of her life, having things handed to her on a silver platter. And this will work well for her social game in high school, but once she enters the real world, things will get all too real for miss princess. And also, good luck trying to break up with her, because she will probably rant about how awful you are on her Facebook page. Yes, there are still girls who will do this stuff. So if you want to stay safe, your best bet is to avoid this girl at all costs.
2 The Impossible Standards Girl
She requires her men to have at least a Master’s degree, a luxury vehicle, the right height-weight proportions, and good luck if you don’t make at six-figure salary. Are you already rolling your eyes? The Impossible Standards Girl is most likely an organic-coffee sipping vegan who demands that you adhere to her rigid lifestyle. She’s just trying to weed out the losers, after all. Yeah, better steer clear of these chicks, they will even slowly lose some friends. How can anyone tolerate being told by a partner what they should change and do, its like having the most annoying record being played on repeat. Besides, anyone who demands that you meet all of their standards is clearly not someone who understands what love or even a relationship is. Hello, ever hear of compromise? Plus, the odds are she isn’t even that great herself.
1 The Nowhere-to-be-Found-Until-You’re-Taken Girl
You all know what we’re talking about here (even guys are guilty of doing this.) The girl is nowhere to be found; she won’t answer your phone calls; she backs out of any kind of get-together. And then the minute you start dating someone else, she is all over you! There is actually a name for this and it is way worse than ghosting, this is called benching. This is when you string someone along and give them just enough hope to stick around. And it seems to be happening a lot! What is this, some kind of weird female hormone? She may think that she is playing hard-to-get, but the reality is she is just being a huge flake and coming across as a psycho girlfriend. Guaranteed to scare your friends and scar you emotionally, this girl is a loose cannon you should avoid.
