The men you’re likely to meet before Mr Right


The on and off type

This is the kind that no matter how many times you breakup, he always finds his way back into your life. Defining what you guys have going is difficult because one moment you’re all over each other like magnets and the next you hate each other.


The catch

Sexy body and gorgeous face? Check! However you have doubts as to why he’s with you because he’s too good looking. Your peers often give you props for dating this looker but it bothers you. Trusting him is a big deal because women give him all the attention and you wonder if he does the same when you’re not around.


The booty-call

You’re not in a no-strings attached or friends with benefits type of arrangement but you can’t help think that you are. He makes contact during odd hours, not for anything else but sex. You hardly do ‘normal’ couple activities because you’re forever couped up in between the sheets.


The ghoster

Holiday season is the worst for you because you know he’ll go awol. He lets the excitement and the festive feeling get the better of him so much that he forgets about you for a while. The effort you put in suddently seems like a waste because you know he’ll never be what you want him to be.


The bad boy

In most cases this usually happens in the beginning stage of your dating life. Their uncertainity is so attractive  that you’d chase after him, regardless of dangerous it can be. This is a great phase to go through as you’re able to see that you need more stability and certainity from a relationship.


Mr know-it-all

It doesn’t matter what you’re discussing, he always claims that he knows. If he isn’t too opinionated about certain topics he knows high profile people as his ‘friends’.
