Dating in youth means meeting these 8 types of men
While it might not be the smoothest, most satisfying experience of your life, the men you date in your twenties play a major role in how you view relationships in the future. While some may be pure fools, there are also some who will broaden your mind and your outlook on life … and then there are some who will do both. But nevertheless, they will all leave you a lesson.
Eight men we all dated in our twenties
We ranked him number one because he’s exactly the guy your mom warned you about. You probably knew his reputation before you started dating him, but you gave it a try anyway. This is the guy who has 10 “chicks” on the speed dial and calls them “baby” to avoid confusion. Thank you, more!
2. The emotional manipulator
A second loved one (and the first for some), the emotional manipulator has you within reach. He takes the time to get to know you well, only so that he can use it to his advantage. Everything he says or does is designed to induce feelings of guilt, insecurity, regret or vulnerability, which is what he feeds on! He has an inexplicable hold on you and knows all your weaknesses like his pocket.
3. Older man
This is the kind of insaan you meet after a difficult race with younger and indecisive men. Then the older guy seems like a breath of fresh air! He’s mature, gives you space, and is great in bed. He seems like the kind of man you’d love to have babies with until … boom! The novelty wears off and you realize that he has no patience for dealing with children like you.
4. The true friend with benefits
He’s a really great guy. You meet him just to connect and keep him that way, avoiding any emotional attachment and proving to the world that you can actually have a good time without it ending in tears.
It’s all about honesty and open communication from both sides. And while you might have a brief “I wish we were more than that” moment, you will get over it and feel empowered and in control of your life.
5. The baby
He’s confused about everything. He doesn’t know what he wants or where he’s going, whether it’s his love life or his career. His mom calls him 10,927 times a day and he responds diligently to every call.
He gets to work late because he sucks as an adult, and will trade hot sex and a late-night movie for a game of FIFA and some beer. He has a heart of gold, but he’s not yet emotionally equipped to handle you.
6. The “too good to be true” guy
He sends you a text “hello” and wishes you “good night”. He’s so overly sweet that you want to throw up. He talks about marriage and will agree with anything you say or do. But who wants a “yes”, right?
7. The tinder guy
So you met him on an online dating app, and you still don’t know if he’s a serial killer or not. There are days when it seems like he has potential for a husband, and then there are days when it seems like you need five pain relievers and a therapist to figure it out.
8. The one that got away
Of course, your favorite of the bunch, no matter how much it has hurt you. Because it is not shared, this relationship will feel like THE right one. It is he who makes you sigh a little in the midst of all your happy moments.
