#1 The Toughest Man in the Room
“Always trying to be the toughest man in any situation. I have one guy I know in mind and he claims to have no fears, could take anyone on, and is just an absolute d***. Reminds me of Cyrus from Trailer Park Boys, but worse and less funny.”
We all know that one guy who’s always trying to be the toughest man in any situation. It’s like he’s on a mission to prove he has no fears and can take on anyone. Spoiler alert: this bravado isn’t winning any hearts.
#2 Forgiving Their Own Flaws, Condemning Others’
“Think their flaws are forgivable while the flaws of others aren’t.”
It’s a bit of a head-scratcher when some guys believe their own flaws are entirely forgivable, while everyone else’s are worthy of judgment. Some users have noticed this double standard, where self-reflection is optional, and finger-pointing is the norm.
#3 Eau de ‘Smell Like S***’
“Smell like a**. Too many people in my circle are single men who just….just smell like a**.”
In the dating game, first impressions matter, and smelling like a gym locker room isn’t a winning strategy. Many users in their circles have come across single men who…well, just smell really bad. Personal hygiene is a basic life skill, but for some, it seems to be an elusive concept.
#4 The Fart Noise Virtuoso
“I am continually surprised at who can get a girlfriend/boyfriend. Really, some of the most man children I’ve ever seen have gotten married. Some of the biggest a******* I know have kids.
There is one guy I know that I think will struggle, though. He’s in his 20’s and the only way he can entertain himself is by making loud fart noises with his mouth. I’ll be sitting there chatting with another friend, and out of the blue he’ll just make this sloppy shart sound with his face and laugh his a** off.”
We’ve all met that one guy who entertains himself by making loud fart noises with his mouth. You could be in the middle of a serious conversation, and suddenly, he’ll unleash a symphony of shart sounds with his face. Needless to say, it’s not the kind of “music” that impresses potential partners.
#5 The Art of Inappropriate Remarks
“Make overt sexual remarks, at inappropriate times, to people they do NOT know well enough off for that sort of banter.”
Making overt sexual remarks at inappropriate times to people they barely know can quickly lead to a one-way ticket to singledom. It’s crucial to gauge the context and comfort level before diving into such banter, as some users have observed.
#6 Unsolicited “Artistic” Offerings
“Sending unsolicited di** pics is a good indicator.”
Sending unsolicited explicit photos is a surefire way to remain on the singles’ bench. It’s surprising how some guys think this is a winning move. Respect and consent should always come before any such offerings.
#7 Blaming the Entire Gender
“Blaming all women for something one woman did.”
Blaming all women for something one woman did is a classic example of unfair generalization. Many users have noticed this tendency in some guys. It’s like holding an entire gender accountable for one person’s actions, and it’s not a recipe for successful relationships.
#8 The Slob with High Standards
“When they are slob and disaster as a person. But proceed to have a 10 page single spaced list of what they want in a woman.”
It’s quite a paradox when a person is a slob and a disaster as a partner but has an extensive, detailed list of what they want in a partner. This “Do as I say, not as I do” approach doesn’t usually lead to lasting love.
#9 The Commodity View
“When they talk about women’s value as if they are commodities. I distanced myself from a very old friend seeing him go off the deep end.”
Treating women as commodities is a major dating faux pas. Some users have distanced themselves from friends who talk about women’s value as if they’re trading stocks. Recognizing the value of respect and equality is a crucial step toward healthier relationships.
#10 Responsibility Avoidance
“Not take responsibility and lacks any self reflection. No one wants an incompetent manchild that thinks they are perfect and unwilling to grow/change.”
Taking responsibility and practicing self-reflection are essential in any relationship. However, some guys refuse to acknowledge their faults and remain in a state of perpetual self-denial. An unwillingness to grow and change isn’t a trait that’s likely to attract a lasting partner.
#11 Unsolicited Relationship Advice
“Loudly telling women how to be more desirable to men. Usually without provocation.”
One surefire way to raise eyebrows in the dating world is by loudly telling women how to be more desirable to men, often without any provocation. Some users have noticed this tendency in certain men. Offering unsolicited relationship advice is rarely appreciated and can come across as presumptuous. It’s a lesson in the importance of keeping well-meaning advice to oneself until asked for.
